Bio Photo Hello, I was born in West Virginia and have researched my family for about 23 years now. I live in Iredell county with my husband, 4 kids, and 2 grandchildren:) I have come to the point in my search that records are not available so now I've decided to try to help others with their search. I LOVE this work! Hope I can help :)

RE: Hattie Lou Trivette # 119158054
Dear Erika,

Thanks so very much for your help with my “Aunt Hattie.”

Sorry it has taken me so long to reply, but my wife has been ill. She is recovering nicely now so I can get back to family history!

Ericka, since you mentioned it I am desperate to get pictures of the graves of my great Aunt and Uncle buried at Union Grove United Methodist Church Cemetery.

They are buried next to each other and are:

Gwyn McKinley Whitlock (1904-1968)# 106677793
Minnie Lee Trivette Whitlock (1899-1986)# 138877045

Any help in this matter would be profoundly appreciated!

Dear Erika,

I want to congratulate and thank you for the excellent work you have done in Zion Baptist Church Cemetery, Union Grove, Iredell Co., NC. You have memorialized many of my ancestors including my great Aunt Hattie Lou Trivette 119158054. She was the daughter of my great grandparents Rezin R Trivette and his wife Margaret Barthania Crater Trivette. I loved my "Aunt Hattie" dearly.

I am probably the only person in the world who could write a biography/memorial for her.

Would you please transfer her to me?

She is Hattie Lou Trivette # 119158054.

I am Jim Forcum Contributor # 47985100

Most Respectfully,

Mary Lee Watkins Sharpe
Hi Erika,

Your memorial entry for Mary Lee Watkins Sharpe should read Mary Lee Sharpe Watkins, as her maiden name was Sharpe and married name was Watkins.

RE: The father of James Claywell
James Claywell's father was Solomon Claywell #60228884

If you wish to transfer, I dont mind maintaining the memorial. The Claywells in the cemetery are my ancestors. May I use the Claywell photo's you took at this cemetery in my family tree? I will give you proper photo credit if you will allow this

thanks so much for adding the burials and taking the photos. :-)

Signs of entrance to cem.
Would you consider removing the cem. signs, entrance pics of cem., from the two Farrar memorials.? I do not mean the pics of the gravestones, only the cem signage that automatically goes onto memorials unless you click the command to delete that signage. Removing the cem sign will allow for folks in fam to post more family portraiture when they become aware they can do so. Thank you for considering this question. the command to delete the cem pic from memorial for Mr. and Mrs. Farrar will be underneath grave photos and before flowers...right side of memorials. Thank you, again, for your efforts.
