RE: Emma Ruth Speller Thompson
under Speller Family Cemetary Thomas Ridley Spelle is listed as married to Eva Parker, This is incorrect, My Grandfather Thomas R Speller was married to Anna B Speller, and they were the parens of 12 children.Then under Eva Parker it lists Thomas Ridley Speller and her husband and Emma Thompson and their daughter.
There are two cemetaries within a mile of each other Speller Family Cemetary and Spellers Ferry Cemetary. Spellers Family Cemetary is an old white private cemetary dating for 1880's, Spellers Ferry Cemetary is the black cemetary with approximately the same date.
The birthdate and death date for Thomas Ridley Spelle is correct, So someone just got the wrong information, Perhaps his name was Thomas R Speller, Bertie County population is over 50 %
Black race and probably 1/2 have Speller for a last name

Emma Ruth Speller Thompson
The father, Thomas Ridley Speller that you have listed on Thomas Ridley Speller, Thomas Ridley Speller was married to Anna B Leggett in the early 1900 and they had 12 children, the Thomas R Speller you are talking about could be buried in spellers ferry cemetary (african american cemetary) in the same vicinity, Thomas R Speller (buried in Speller Family Cemetary was my grand-father, Please make this correction

Incorrect death re: headstone
I noticed today that for Lieutenant David Jameson his death date is listed as 1831, but headstone states 1839.

Keep up the good work. A lot of people just don't understand what Findagrave is all about. I wish this sight had been around years ago before the internet when I wasn't interested in family history. Now there is no one to ask about it.

Why?
Why did you take a picture of my brother's grave? As much as I love doing a google search and having to look at his grave stone first and foremost, I'd prefer to remember him as he was when he was alive. Am I the only person that finds this tasteless?

Have you even attempted to contact anybody in our family, or do you rather just take random pictures of people's gravestones for the heck of it? Either way, the ground where he lies has just been disturbed (you can tell by the dirt), and yet you're confidently standing on top of it snapping photos. Have some respect for the dead.

I imagine you think that your cause for doing this is just and deserved, but being the sibling of the person that your are literally standing six feet on top of wasting the precious moments you have taking photos of the markers of the deceased, I can assure you it look thoughtless and offensive.

In loving memory of Daniel Fath,

Jonathan Fath (insert middle finger here in his memory)

Thank you in advance for your help!

RE: Rochelle surname
Heather, the Rochelle Cemetery, in Maple Hill, Pender Co., NC that you sponsored. Can you add that in 1996 there were 30 unmarked graves with wooden markers in this cemetery. Thank you.
