Bio and Links
I have long, long connections with Wilkes County, NC. I grew up in upper Virginia, the D.C. area to be exact, and would visit here from time to time with my dad, who was born in Wilkes County. In 1967, we moved to CA and I married in 1970 and moved to Oregon where I lived until 2000. At that time, I moved back to CA to help with my parents. Each year, we would visit during late September/early October for family reunions and about two years ago, daddy and mother were getting tired of things in CA in the Bay Area and started thinking about moving. We looked at property in Wilkes County and last September found the home we now live in. We moved from CA to "home" and the moving van pulled up on Dec. 26 of 2007 and in we moved! We are glad to be home among family and friends and while I have never lived here before, it feels like home since my roots go back to the 1770's here and I feel like I know all there is to know about Wilkes (which, I'm sure, is not true!) But, here I am and since I am caregiver for my 90-year old dad and 85-year old mother, (who has since passed away on June 11 2009), I don't work and have some free time on my hands. I am going to attempt to photograph Wilkes County cemeteries over time and since findagrave was so helpful to me, I am happy to be able to add to the lists. I am willing to help with questions and answers about Wilkes cemeteries and history, but cannot guarantee I will do it in "your time". lol I love this website and appreciate all the great contributors.

Not a problem as to lateness, my husband had that but h didn't last that long, but I so know how much time it takes to care for a loved one. Thank you for the information, I do appreciate it. Take care and remember you have to take care of yourself as well. Good Luck and enjoy this time with him. HUGS!

Thank you!
I just wanted to say Thank you for your work and photography! I would have never found many of my ancestor's graves without wonderful people like you! As no one talked about my Aunt Bernedene Adams McNeil, because she died so young in an automobile accident, I would have never known that she was buried a short distance from the rest of the family! A sincere Thanks! God Bless, Cindy A. J.

Jacob and Mary Hanks
I am wondering about the condition of Jacob and Mary Hanks's headstones, that you photographed at the Round Hill Baptist Church Cemetery.

http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=146473994

Have they been vandalized? I ask because of the pink paint.

Regards, Louise
