Bio and Links
Bio Photo I enjoy helping others out. As well as working on my family history. If I can help in my area let me know. I will try to help get your photo and or obituary, if possible.

However, after going out of my way to get pictures and the such, I would appreciate it if Marcia would stop trolling the findagrave site and nit picking at my and "other" contributors work, effort and help. We are all adults, or so should be.

I am human and do make mistakes, just like the rest of us. (Whether some want to admit it or not is still out for debate. LOL)

If you find a problem, please be kind when asking for corrections to be made. Most would agree that a polite contact is the best kind of contact.

In the event you find memorials that need to be linked. Please provide proof that it is husband and wife buried together. I've gotten wrong information. What a headache that was. So please provide proof. Thanks!!

Currently I am inputting information from cemetery books. I am not trying to have a bunch of memorials under my number WHO CARES???
What I care for is to list the forgotten, for those that are searching for loved ones. Not knowing where in the "county" they are resting. Since inputting the cemetery book info. I have had several people contact me because I had solved mysteries where their relatives are buried at.


Found this wonderful writing by: Thelma Greene Reagan.

THE RECORDING OF A CEMETERY LEAF
BY THELMA GREENE REAGAN
Today we walked where others walked
On a lonely, windswept hill;
Today we talked where other cried
For Loved Ones whose lives are stilled.
Today our hearts were touched
By graves of tiny babies;
Snatched from the arms of loving kin,
In the heartbreak of the ages.
Today we saw where the grandparents lay
In the last sleep of their time;
Lying under the trees and clouds -
Their beds kissed by the sun and wind.
Today we wondered about an unmarked spot;
Who lies beneath this hollowed ground?
Was it a babe, child, young or old?
No indication could be found.
Today we saw where Mom and Dad lay.
We had been here once before
On a day we'd all like to forget,
But will remember forever more.
Today we recorded for kith and kin
The graves of ancestors past;
To be preserved for generations hence,
A record we hope will last.
Cherish it, my friend; preserve it, my friend,
For stones sometimes crumble to dust
And generations of folks yet to come
Will be grateful for your trust.

there is a picture posted on Marie Holcomb Duke #97014989 of two girls and I was wondering who they were. Tammy Phillips (my great grandmother Pearl was one of her younger sisters).

Greetings, and thank you for all the work you have done taking photographs and creating memorials.

Concerning the headstone for William Anthony Clark: I see from the photo that the stone is an obelisk (4-sided) in Rigg Cemetery. I am wondering whether there is an inscription for his wife, Mahala Roberts, on another one of those sides.

I have created a memorial for her with the dates of her birth and death from a 1912 booklet, revised in 1968, called A Genealogy of the Clarks of Guilford Courthouse (now Greensboro), NC.

I know that I myself have once or twice failed to walk all around those obelisk headstones and therefore returned from my trips without the images. If you live within easy access to the Rigg cemetery, would you be willing to double check for her inscription?

Thank you in advance, even should you not be able to revisit.

Samuel Buel Carnahan
Thanks for posting the memorial to Samuel Buel Carnahan, my great-grandfather. All information agrees with the research my late mother, Doris Moore Carnahan, did in the 1980's. I recognized the picture of Samuel and Jean as it is in our family's collection. In fact, the writing at the top is my mother's handwriting, where she posted it in a book she wrote titled "Meet Your Carnahan Ancestors." It is available as a free download here for anyone who is interested:

Eliza Jane (Gray) STRODE
I saw this & wanted to help you in correcting the information about:Eliza Jane (Gray) STRODE 1874-1924 was the d/o of John & Elizabeth(Riggens) GRAY. She married Isaac Lewis STRODE in 1895 in Fulton Co. IL. He was the s/o Silas Coleman STRODE & Sarah M.(Paul). Eliza Jane(Gray) Strode was a daughter-in-law to Silas & Sarah(Paul)STRODE. Silas & Sarah had 11 sons, no daughters. Joseph Andrew "Doc" STRODE married Sarah E.(Gray), she was a sister to Eliza(Gray).
Joseph Andrew "Doc" STRODE was my great-grandfather, Silas Coleman Strode was my 2nd great-grandfather.I am hoping this clears things up a little bit. I submitted a nice newspaper interview called a Ramblers Notes about Silas & Sarah Strode on the fultoncountyancestors.org site that will help confirm the info about Silas & Sarah STRODE. Thank-you so much for adding the memorial for them. Tina(Payne)Reed

Nancy Jane{Bradley}Booth fag#81011254
I was wondering if you would be able to help me gather some information on Nancy Booth and her family. I also would like to have a copy of the picture that you found in the Library. I have contacted the library several times but they have never answered my letters for information on the Booth family. I would be willing to pay you for your time i live in Ohio and i do not drive to gather the information myself. Thank you for any help you can provide for me. I am trying to put together a book of my moms Bradley family from Fleming co Ky. Thank you again. Patty#47517041
