Bio and Links
Bio Photo Although an Asheville native, my genealogical bases are Yancey, Mitchell and Iredell Counties. Surnames closely related to me are Vickery, Morrison, Bradshaw, Stevenson, Gibson and Bagwell.

I will never create a grave for anyone about whom I know nothing; if I do not have any information other than two dates I leave creation of the memorial to someone who hopefully does have it. These people deserve more on their memorials than just dates, no matter how large the cemetery!

Those who transcribe whole cemeteries without even bothering to use dates, just to boost their numbers, should be banned from the site, in my opinion. With the resources of the Internet now available, there is no excuse for such.

However, I am happy to transfer graves of any persons who are not related to me, to anyone who is related to the deceased. That said, please do not abuse this. Thanks.

PLEASE NOTE: We can NOT link parents to children! That is, we have to link children UP to parents, not link parents DOWN to children. It's just the way the site works. Please do not contact me about adding children to the parents' graves. I can't. Instead - contact the creators of the chidren's graves and ask them to link the kids UP to the parents - it is the only way to do this.

Kindly refrain from post death certs on my memorials. Photos are great, however.

Parents of Lazarus P. Phillips, Sr.
I see you have listed Nehemiah Phillips as the father of Lazarus P. Phillips, Sr. and I am wondering what evidence/documentation you have of this. Your assistance is greatly appreciated. - Dianne Rosenfield (

John Robert Shelton
There is a mistake on John Robert Shelton's (#111291297) memorial. Malinda Cutshall #87991555 is listed as both a child and a sibling. She is a CHILD, not a sib.

Mix up with the last names of #127667261 and 127667490
The Mattie Jane Fleming Walker (#127667490) that you have, her married last name is really Brawley, so her name is supposed to be Mattie Jane Fleming Brawley.

And her husband that you have: John Henry Walker (#127667261), his last name is Brawley instead of Walker so his name should say John Henry Brawley.

The Walker that you have for their last names is actually their daughter's married last name. You have their daughter's name correct Mary Brawley Walker (#127667220).

Just to let you know, so that you could please fix their last names. Mary Jane Fleming Brawley is my 3rd great grandfather's daughter.

I think I found your Nancy A. (Mrs J.F.) Stevenson gravestone
I uploaded 2 separate photos in case you can read something on 1 that you can't read on the other. I may have more photos when I get to the batch I took on a sunny day. These 2 are wet from rain. Just let me know if you think this is not this person's gravestone and I will remove these photos.
