Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am an amateur genealogist interested in local history. Born and raised in New Jersey, I'm a "Jersey Shore" girl that still loves the beach! My husband and I relocated to North Carolina in 2001 and and we just love our new adopted home.

I try and photograph local cemeteries; and whenever I add a photo to Find-A-Grave I try and add some sort of biographical information on the person. Having done the research on my own family, I know how helpful any clue can be in tracing ancestors. I welcome any changes or additions to information I've submitted, and will gladly transfer ownership to any family member requesting. Please contact me through the EDIT tab on any memorial I added by using "Suggest a correction or provide additional information".

Richard Henry Gatlin was son of Thomas D. Gatlin and Julia Pender. He had one brother, Thomas H. Gatlin, and two sisters: Caroline Gatlin and Georgianna Gatlin. Of these, Caroline married first Joseph John Anthony of near Scotland Neck, second Henry Johnston. Georgianna married Lemon S. Dunn. This is proved in the loose estates papers of Edgecombe. Hope this helps.

Just read your interesting post on Deborah Vanderveer and David Coddington. Just wanted to alert you to the fact that the mother of Deborah Vanderveer was Deborah Voorhees, not Sarah. Deborah Voorhees was born Nov 16, 1765 at Flatbush, NY, d May 1, 1847 (or1849) and is buried in New Brunswick, NJ First Reformed Yard. She was the dr of Peter Voorhees, and was married 1st to another Peter Voorhees, son of Abraham and Adriantje Lefferts Voorhees. Her Voorheees husband died soon after, and she married as second wife to Garret VanDerveer son of Jan and Sytje VanDerveer of NJ Garret was bap Oct 6, 1750 at Six Mile Run. By Garret Vanderveer they were the parents of John (1796-1833); Mary (1798-1833); Jane (1800; Deborah (1807-1882) and Abigail (1809). Kris

I transferred Mr. Schuring's memorial to you as you requested. So glad I could help you find him. I was wondering about his marker when I photographed it, thinking it must have been a transfer, as Doyle has only been in existence since the late 1980's. Best of luck finding all those you seek. Regards.

John Allen Vines
Thank you so very much for your addition of John Allen Vines photo and family information. I am kin to the Pitt & Beaufort Co, NC Vines family. Still working hard on verifying the family history. I was born and raised in Wilson, so I have relatives at Maplewood Cemetery. I did not know about the John Allen Vines family. Thank you is so small to say after all the work you have completed. I live in Florida now, but will be in Wilson soon. I will go to the Maplewood, and look up the John Allen Vines plot. pbfries, you are amazing!

Take care,
Dianna Tyson Farr, the great granddaugter of Samuel Vines & Dicey Johnson Vines

A Big Thank You!
I just got an email from Robert Kennedy, Great Grandson of Herbert Rountree. He and I want to thank you for not only including the info we had but going that extra mile and adding additional research findings to the bio. Others researching the family will now be able to go forward with more information about the descendants. It is so very appreciated and kind of you to do this.

RE: Lou Alice Bundy, James Winfor Bundy
Yes, I understand all that you say about what Mamie did and who she was married to. However, James Winford Bundy had children from a previous marriage. Two girls, one named Lousie. I met her when I was a child. She was married to a Quenten Crane and had at least two children of her own with Quenten. I met one of them and maybe both of them. Louise, Quenten and at least one of the girls visited us twice when we lived in Clinton, MD in the early 14960's I have yet to find any records of Winford Bundy's two girls nor any record of a first marriage. But I know it is true. I have talked to mu oldest sister's and they both agree with the information above. I was hoping that you knew more to help us connect the dots here. Thank you for your information though!!
