Bio and Links
Bio Photo In regard to edits, Yes I will make the necessary edits after I have verified the information. If the information already exists on the memorial, in a bio, in a note, in links or just common sense. IE: their whole family lived and died in the same location they were buried in, why ask me to add this information? I would also ask, please provide me with the information of your source for wanted edits. Sending me the same edit 20 times is not going to make me want to help you.

My family has lived within 30 miles of our original home place in North Carolina since 1772. Jesse Sr. Moore moved here from Virginia in 1772 and my family line never left. I am the ninth generation. My Grandmother, Amy Moore Coffey was a master storyteller and she knew all of them. These people that came before were not just ancestors, they were family. We kept them and their stories alive and with us.

I recently, (2013) found WPA records for the state of North Carolina. I am entering these records as I can. I have not visited these cemeteries. I do not plan to attempt finding them. I am making the effort to ensure not to duplicate. I will always indicate which records are from the WPA or Works Project Administration. I can offer no further information on these WPA records.

RE: Allen Fisher 1812-1869
Barbara, Thank you for being diligent adding parents. Allen Fisher was a brother to my 2nd great grandmother Mary E. Fisher Monteith. Allen Fisher is buried in Old Field Cemetery where his parents James and Mary Gilleland Fisher are buried. I grew up in Sylva. I will have to check to see what Proof I have other than an old Fisher history from the old Fisher Reunions. "The Heritage of Jackson County" gives the information but these books are not Proof documents. Allen Fisher is not close enough kin. I had pictures of the tombstones which I put on find-a-grave for family to find. Thank you.

John Campbell, Memorial# 159475848
Hi Barbara,
Thank you so much for all your Find A Grave work! To save you time, I wanted to let you know the source that I based my Edits on: http://homepages.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~cmddlton/dglss1.html#anchor1185986
McGill Cemetery was specifically mentioned as John's burial, on this website page. I can't believe that you made his memorial, only a few months ago. What luck!
Thanks again! Aileen

RE: Robert M. Griffith
Barbara, sorry to be late responding--was out of town. I am a member of Sharon church and did a lot of genealogical research on the early members of the church when we made a Heritage Book in 2006 celebrating the church's 175th anniversary. The 1840 list of baptized members (mainly children and young people who were baptized but had not yet formally joined) lists Robert M. Griffith right in birth order with all his living siblings. His family was the only Griffith family at the church. Furthermore, he is buried in I1, where all the other Griffiths are buried. His headstone obviously existed in the 1970s when the cemetery plot map was done. Since there is no photo of his grave, most of it must be gone. However, next time I am in the cemetery, I will look in the Griffith plot. Likely there is some part of his stone still there, and if so, I will photograph and post it. The official record of inscriptions lists his full death date, so I know he must have had a decent stone.

RE: Martha Alexander Birth: Oct. 16, 1845
You are right that there were 2 Martha Alexanders, both nicknamed Mattie, in Meck. County in 1900. I have gotten the 2 sorted out and even made a memorial on the second one. The first one is the one you did at Sharon Church. Martha S. Alexander born Oct. 1845. She lives in Sharon community in 1850 with her parents Joel and Susannah. She is still in Sharon community living with a cousin in 1900 and still single. Her grave is very near that of her mother Susannah, so this must be the one you got from the NC records. The 2nd one was born Martha Frances Query in Cabarrus County. She married John M. Alexander in June 1865. They lived in the Mallard Creek community (far, far from Sharon) in 1870, 1880. She is widowed and still in Mallard Creek in 1900. She remained in that area in 1910 and 1920 and lived until 1930. Death certificate verified she is buried at Mallard Creek Pres. Church. She had no memorial so I made one for her.

RE: Julius M Troutman
P.S. There is certainly a Julius Minor Troutman (b 1896), son of Robert Quincie Troutman.

RE: Julius M Troutman
The NC Birth indexes (Delayed Births, Iredell County, NC) for both his children, William Fife Troutman and Alice Pearl Troutman, list him as Julius Moore Troutman.

RE: W Edwards
Saw the whole name attached to a picture of headstone on ancestry.com Then I just found another copy of picture with Henry for middle name so just leave middle initial as H.

Thanks
