Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born and raised in Atlanta, but have lived most of my adulthood in Charlotte, North Carolina. Coincidentally I ended up right where my roots are on my father's side of the family. Genealogy is my passion and I never met a cemetery I didn't like. I'm also into historic preservation, both of buildings and the lives of people no longer with us.

As the daughter of a general and great-granddaughter of 3 Confederate veterans, I like to note military records of veterans on their findagrave memorials.

I welcome corrections/additions, but will no longer link to a "burial unknown" person. I have found this leads to duplicates.

FAMILIES ON MY FATHER'S SIDE: Irwin, DeWeese, Blackwelder, Babcock, Taylor, Wilbon.

FAMILIES ON MY MOTHER'S SIDE: Bryan, Battle, Pope, Atkinson, Yarbrough, Chappell.

Gay Hardin
Birth year of Calvin Hunter
1860 Census
Robert F Hunter 28 DOB:1832 SC
Jane Hunter 31 DOB:1829 SC
Robert W Hunter 8 DOB: 1852 SC
Emolin Hunter 6 DOB: 1854 SC
Calvin Hunter 4 DOB:1856 SC
John Hunter 2 DOB: 1858 NC
1870 Census
Jane Hauber 40 DOB:1830 SC
Emeline Hauber 14 DOB:1856 SC
Calvin Hauber 12 DOB:1858 SC
John Hauber 10 DOB:1860 SC) Note: It is stated John is born in NC in the 1860 census.
Louis (Julius) Hauber 7 DOB:1863 SC
Mary E Hauber 6 DOB:1864 SC
NOTE: Jane is a widow. She filed for Civil War Pension on May 3, 1869.

The dates vary from census. However, if the first born child, Robert, was born in 1852 and Emoline in 1854, Calvin could not be born in 1852.

Thanks for all your hard work. The dates continue to be wrong. I list the children according to birth. Sure wish someone had a Bible.

Landon Walker daughter obit
Susan: This obit in the local paper caught my eye. When I saw she was the daughter of a Walker from North Carolina, I had to check findagrave & lo & behold, her father is 1 of your posts. I assume you want to know. ALLEN WALKER
