Bio and Links
Bio Photo We are Matthew and Chrissy Myers. We have been into old stones and cemeteries for years, and got back on the site a while ago. We are working on a project to do Military and Civil War graves in the NC area mostly and love taking road trips and have discovered a few old cemeteries and added them on here. I have been in the military for 16 years now.

PHOTOS - We will add better photos if stone was not cleaned or clear for clear photo, Or does not take the whole stone, or it needs a close up to read the info. Also if the pic is discolored.

Most of our family are from PA, and CT.

Family on Matthew's Fathers side are, Myers, Kerner / Karner, Carner, Domer, Grantham, Stroup, Lusher, Mitchell, Van De Kuil, Kuil, Pryer,Turk .

Matthew is a descentant of John Kerner / Carner, who was married to Magdalena. They had a son John Carner JR, who married Susan Stroup. John and Susan had a daughter Susan. Susan Carner married George Domer. George and Susan Domer and a daughter Sarah Belle, who married My Great Great Grandfather Samual B Myers. Samual and Sarah had a son Ralph Otto Myers, my Great Grandfather, who had Ralph Clair Myers, who married my grandmother Alice Grantham Myers. They had a son Ralph Kriss Myers, who married my mom Mary Louise Evans. ( In my Myers Virtual Cemetery )

Family on my Mothers side are, Evans, Hunter, McNaughton, Monross, Ball. ( In my Evans Virtual Cemetery ) Related to Lucille Ball.

I am happy to transfer grave memorials outside my family to family members, and I welcome corrections and additions. Just use the edit tab to send your request.

I have no problem doing a photo request if someone needs one that is in the Raleigh area or close. Send me a request and Ill try to fill it. I would appreciate a comment on my page after I fill your request. Thank you.

I've removed it :)
Okay just checked and found it fairly quickly and I always try to abide by the "law" lol. Here's Find A Grave's response to this situation. I did check myentry a little bit more and realize I added it because it was on the burial list sheet Ihad used back in 2010.
"it is not always possible to determine if the person is living or not. Please do not add pre-need memorials from (1931-present) to Find A Grave. "

Thanks for the message about Jessie not having passed yet. This would be what is called a "pre-needs" memorial and is acceptable for 1935 and before births...pretty sure that's the date. I'll check and make sure and if it's not I'll remove the memorial. I never used to add them for stones that had names for folks I wasn't sure had passed but rules have changed and it's possible I remove it and tomorrow someone else could add it again as it's become a contest it seems these days.

Laura Cannada
This name might be spelled as Canady. Did you see any Canadys in that cemetery? I often see see the Canady name spelled as Cannada or some other way.

Thanks for your help.

Thank you for trying to get this photo. Your right, the stone is almost unreadable and that is a shame.

RE: Owen Fee
OK. Will do. How did you find out that the U.S. marker was placed in 1938 & Removed Jan. 1, 1943 at request of daughter from New York City. Is that in the cemetery office records? MFS
