Greetings, I changed, enlarged or simply removed the boarders from a photo you provided for her. I attached your name as the source. I hope this meets with approval. I am a direct descendant.

I seen that you posted on Mary Sherrill Greene's memorial that you come from her daughter Margaret. I have their daughter Margaret married to a Harper Haworth and moved to Indiana.
Margaret's sister Selina married Harper's brother Samuel Haworth.

Bentley-Kendall Cemetery
James, I wonder if several of us could go to this cemetery in the spring and photograph any stones that are there? We have a group of about 7 of us we call the Granite Club here in Wilkes and we are trying to photograph all still existing cemeteries that we can find, especially older, smaller family cemeteries such as this so they don't fade from existence. Since you took the cemetery picture, I thought you might be related or know who I could call for permission if this is on someone's private land. Thank you for placing this information on Find A Grave!

RE: margaret greene
I'm sorry, with so little information I have no idea what you are talking about. A link to her memorial or an 'edit' from her memorial would be very helpful. Kathy
