Bio and Links
Bio Photo I retired as an elementary school principal in 2000. As a person that sleeps only 4 hours a night that leaves 20 hours to fill. Sitting home is not an option. Now, I drive a school bus 5 hours a day and visit cemeteries every chance I get. I have never been to a cemetery that charged admission and seldom is there a crowd. My wife, Sandra, is of a like mind so it works well. We both enjoy the hunt and the thrill that comes with each discovery. Let us know if we can help. If you have additional information on one of my post or you are a relative and want ownership, I will gladly transfer it to you. Just ask. Oh! By the way just call me Doc!
NOTE: Many times the family plot has names different from those on the headstone. I always attempt to provide a reference point for markers. Hope this is not confusing.

Two quotes worth remembering:

"Tread softly, dreams are buried here." Unknown

"If you wonder about your 'roots' you have two parents, four grandparents eight great-grandparents and 16 great-great-grandparents, and by the time you go back 10 generations 300 years or so- you had 1,024 people from whom you are directly descended. --Mady Castro

Susan Emma Moss
She is in Hollywood cemetery in Gastonia.
I sent an edit.

You put what was on her stone.
unfortunately the death date put on her stone is wrong.
It shows 1937 and she died in 1938. I can confirm that with death certificate and a family bible.

You do a wonderful job!!!!

Richard, The stone you have posted for George Washington Bryson #75025492 is actually for George Hamilton Bryson #62272313. George Washington Bryson was my GG Grandfather, he died in the Civil War and is buried in an unmarked grave near Rogersville, TN. Thanks, Bernie Cooper

Thank you for posting my cousin Fuller's death certificate. I search the Haywood County archives for it to no avail. It gave me Mabel's first name but her maiden name is illusive.

RE: John Lowe
My wife has taken a DNA test with Ancestry. If you took the test that could prove a link between these Lowe families.

Clemmie Goodman
Clemmie's death certificate states she died on Jan 17, 1891 and was buried on Jan 18, 1891. Her headstone says death was on the 17th. Can you clarify with a source? Thank you! Rena
