William Norris 97162526
Thanks for your work with Find A Grave I finally found the burial location for the son of my great aunt Martha Carlton Norris. I have an old hand written letter that William sent to his niece with genealogy on the Carltons. I only knew where he lived at that time which helped me locate the memorial that you made for him. A transfer will be appreciated.

Sorry, Vonna - I'm working hard on my Whitfields right now and got a few transfers close to each other from various people. Don't know how I messed that up --seems hard to do but guess I found a way! Best Regards, Nancy

RE: Nancy Jane Dihel Speer
You're welcome! It was a fun pleased that it ended successfully. I wonder what she would think if she knew how we searched for her.

Mary McCreight
Nancy McCreight Speer's daughter, Mary McCreight's gravesite is just to the left of Nancy's gravesite. I added a photo for her gravesite also.

Re: Nancy McCreight/Speer
After verifying through the Mercer County Historical Society that the gravesite is at Aledo cemetery, I tracked down Nancy McCreight/Speer's gravesite. The photo is now posted on Find A Grave. I told her she had been hard to find. :)

RE: McCreight
I have found information that Nancy Dihel (note different spelling) married Ambrose Orr McCreight and children from that marriage were Frances Belle "Frankie" McCreight (Candor Cemetery), Clara B. McCreight, Alfred Blair McCreight, Mary Orr "Minnie" McCreight. Then Nancy married a second time to Robert Duncan Speer and they had children Ann, May, and Thomas Dihel Speer. (Several censuses confirm that she remarried and had children in the household with last name of McCreight)I'm thinking Nancy is probably in Aledo Cemetery. Aledo Cemetery does not have very many records in Find a Grave. I also am quite sure she is not in Candor Cemetery as I looked at the cemetery records for Candor at the Mercer County Historical Society and the only Nancy McCreight is the previous one we spoke of: Nancy M, whose stone is shown in the Candor listing. I'm going to keep looking for her gravestone as my interest in now peaked and I'm intrigued by this mission. Note: Robert D Speer was born about 1823. He is not the same Robert D Speer listed in the Aledo Cemetery.

Photo of Battle Flag for 51st NCT
Hey Donna, just thought this might be of interest to you also. The photo of the flag of the 51st NCT with J.W. Atkinson holding the flag was sent to me years ago by someone I do not know. It appeared in the newspapers. I have posted the same picture as of today to the grave of J.W. Atkinson memorial #60593866 . It would be nice if we can locate an obituary for him. Take care.

Agustus A. McKethan, Jr.
Hi Donna, I did double check on McKethan and the source that I first referred to from the North Carolina State Archives is the most complete source available, in addition the transcripts of the records cited in these volumes are directly copied from the National Archives where the original Muster Rolls of all of the Confederate Soldiers (that have a record) are on file. This morning as a back up I also referred to the Soldier and Sailors Data Base with National Archives and the information is verified in a note that this soldier A.A. Mckethan was originally filed as Augustus A. McKethan, Jr. Also his father born in 1809 would have been too old for service during the Civil War, although by many older men and young boys would served with a home guard unit. I have done extensive research in the 51st NCT over the past 25 years as my own ancestor was with this regiment. Here is a link to the National Archives Data Base for you to look at

I do appreciate your concern to make sure the records are right, I am like you, this is a very important issue with me also. I think it would be easy for someone to get the two mixed up.

Thanks! Tim
