Bio and Links
Bio Photo I welcome corrections and additional information on any memorial that I have posted. FindAGrave is a wonderful resource for loved ones and family researchers, so I want the information to be as complete and accurate as possible. Thanks to all the other contributors who accept the edits I send to them. With the new edit system, we really do not communicate directly anymore, but I wanted to express my thanks here!

One reason I take gravestone photos, do research and compile data is to share the results with anyone who would like to use the information. Therefore, any photographs I have taken or any information that I have posted on FindAGrave may be used freely by any person for personal, family history and/or genealogy purposes. It is not necessary to ask my permission or give me credit.

Currently compiling a family history book: "The Groome Family of Groometown-Guilford County, North Carolina" (Caswell, Rockingham and Guilford counties). Please feel free to contact me if you have information on this family that you would like to include in the book.

McGirt family descendant
HI!! I am browsing the internet looking for something and stumbled upon this website with information about my "family." I am a descendant of the McGirts - via my father, Leon Gene Miller, son of Carson Benton Miller and Ella Lucille Bass, and grandson to Carson Alexander Miller and Beulah Benton McGirt. This is so interesting to me to find information about family heritage. Thank you for starting this journey and hopefully we will be able to have some contact (I also sent you an email).

Hey there! :)

I have passed by this cemetery a thousand times and this week is the first time I ever stopped to have a look. I had no idea what the name of it was or who was there. I found a couple of people I was distantly related to though. SCORE! LOL

I didn't get everybody there. It clouded up on me and I had to leave. Some of those old stones are unreadable whether it's cloudy or sunny. I'd like to go back and finish up sometime.

Let me know if I have posted anybody else you recognize and I'll fix 'em and transfer 'em.

Thanks! :)

Thank you for sending me such a nice message! I was afraid you might think I was stalking your memorials. Ha, ha!

I went there to check it out and verify the location. (I thought it was gonna be on the other side of Lumberton.) For some reason I hated to leave without taking photos of every grave, which I rarely do, and I also took a photo of every marker I could safely get to in the African American cemetery beside it. (Water Hole Cemetery) I enjoyed myself even though it was hot and my helpers were planning a mutiny. Ha!

Thanks again! And I swear I'm not stalking your memorials. (On purpose, anyway.)
