Bio and Links
Bio Photo My name is Vickie. I grew up in Swannanoa, N.C. and now I live in Asheville. I enjoy researching family history and walking through cemeteries to read stones. Everyone deserves to be remembered. Someone somewhere loved them. Thanks to the great contributors here at Find a Grave, I have been able to see the graves of many family members that I would have never seen if it wasn't for their generosity. It is so nice to be able to visit a loved one's grave and not even leave the house.

If any of my memorials contain errors, or if you have information to add, please send me a message or an edit. All memorials are done with the utmost respect of those who have passed on and those of us left behind.

When my soul is restless
And things seem out of line,
I visit an old graveyard
To take a mystical step back in time.

I find the oldest tombstones
Then read the messages there;
I consider what their days had been
And how our lives in ways compare.

We all have lived though heartaches
As well as episodes of fun;
Surviving loss of loved ones,
And rewarded for a job well done.

Sometimes if I'm very still
I can hear what they have to say
And feel them reaching out to me
Grateful for my momentary stay.

Pauletta Shrewsury at Rose Cemetery
I noticed you had my Dad Morris and Dennis Blankenship both buried at Wiley Bower Cemetery, Wyoming County WV, half siblings of Pauletta, but they are all three full siblings, all children of Rev. James Morgan and Cordia Adkins Blankenship. There are a few more siblings that have passed. Eugene and Coy Blankenship both buried at Privett Cemetery in Wyoming County WV where their mother Cordia is buried. Then Roy Blankenship buried at Temple Baptist Church in Lewisville, NC

Russell Perla Oates

Have you ever run across this name in your family searches?

Russell was a merchant marine before he entered the US Navy during WW2 at the rank of Lt. Commander. He commanded a supply ship, Uss Roamer out of New Zealand. He may have been from California. Date of birth around 1905.

RE: Faye Jones Ferguson 137877601
You should just contact Find A Grave then and request that the memorials be merged together. Tell them you have tried to contact and have received no response. give both memorial numbers.

Thanks Vickie! Everything looks great now for Henry Gilbert Griffin. Sorry about the mix up with his wife's memorial. I just noticed you're not the owner of it. Take care. ~ Shawn

Western Carolina Veterans
I have been taking a lot of pictures at the WNC veterans cemetery and have added pictures to a lot of memorials you created. I just wanted to tell you what a great job you do with your memorials. It is so nice to see the bios and links and flowers that you put on there. I am glad to add the marker photo to help remember these men and women.

Marshall Greene
I am trying to get more information on Marshall Greene, husband of Ruth Broome Greene. Do you know who his parents are? I have a Marshall Greene on my family tree, and I wonder if this Marshall Greene is the same one.
