Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been climbing around
on my Family Tree, swinging
on it's branches, and digging
at it's roots for over
30 years, (since 1975).
I have been widowed since 1991, retired in 2005.
I LOVE Find-A-Grave. It is a wonderful
asset to the genealogy world.
If I've created a record that someone
needs to correct, update or add
information, please let me know and
I'll be glad to add your information
for you;... or if the person is your
direct family member, and you would
like to have me transfer "ownership"
of that memorial page to you, please
let me know...If that person is not
directly related to me and they are
directly related to you; I will be
glad to transfer their memorial to
you. However, I want to note:
Nearly all of the memorials that I
have created are connected to my
family tree and are a result of a
lot of years hard work and research.

To all the members who have been
kind enough to transfer "ownership"
of my family members to me....
Find A Grave is one of my favorite
It has given me a place that I can
remember my loved ones and honor
their memory.

If you have time, please leave a flower
for my dear husband, Roy E. Hughes.

I just lost my Daddy & Momma
within 3 weeks. Please be patient,
I am way behind in answering request.

I have been to the Mason and Menard County, Illinois courthouses and there is no documentation of death or burial of my Great Aunt in the Kilbourne. Your source is?

Hi Loretta,

I see you have posted burials for the Union Church Cemetery in Boyertown on Find A Grave. Your information is more complete than anything I've found on this graveyard, so far. Can you tell me where you found the information? I'd love to add the resource to my library, if a copy can be had.

Abraham Area 1 and 2!
Carolina Watchman, Salisbury, [NC] November 9, 1844
Executor's Sale The Executor's of the last Will and Testament of Abraham Area, dec'd will expose to sale on the 28th instant at the late residence of the deceased, the Plantation containing 140 Acres, with a good Dwelling House and all necessary Outbuildings.
Also: Nine likely Negroes, men women and children: Besides Household and Kitchen Furniture, Farming Tools, and Stock of every description & c.
Terms made known on the day of sale.
[by] A. Area, J. Area }Executors
Cabarrus county, Nov 9, 1844 3wpd.

It also appeared in the 16th, 23th and 30th editions.
What I found after this was rather interesting

Abraham Eary I
Birth ABT 1757 in Rowan Co., North Carolina
Death 03 Jan 1844 in Rowan Co., North Carolina

This seems to be the father of the Abraham Area that died in 1846.
Hum, other surnames he was under is Arey or Ihrig.
So the one you have is listed is Abraham Area Jr. from what some family charts show and yes, he was the hatter.
Many thanks and glad that is sorted out now! Sylvia
