Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been pursuing genealogy for about fifty years researching numerous lines in Texas and all other southern states. My Smith family was located in Stephen F. Austin's 2nd colony and 4th colony. My Dyches/Dykes/Dikes line was located in Zavalla's colony.
If you find any mistakes, please advise and I will correct ASAP.
I've added certain memorials that I accidently took pictures of that are not my family or connection. If you find one, I would be more than happy to transfer them to you. Let me know. If I have added directs for you, I would be happy to transfer them no matter what generation if they are not directs for me.
The obits that I have been sending out are gems found in the old newspapers. Hope they add some background. Any picture that I have added to any memorial, you are welcome to copy.
Researching Whitmire, Dyches, Fish, Bennett, Smith, McWhorter, McClure, Ballew, Stribling, Farr, McGinty, Bowles.

PLEASE FEEL FREE TO ADD FAMILY PHOTOS, GRAVE PHOTOS, CEMETERY FHOTOS TO MY MEMORIALS BUT PLEASE do not ADD PICTURES OF DEATH RECORDS, WAR RECORDS OR OTHER RELATED GOVERNMENTAL RECORDS TO THE MEMORIALS. THIS INFORMATION BELONGS IN THE BIO SECTION.

did not die when you said. If you will look at the Census of the son you have listed- You will find her with him in 1860.

Duplicate Memorials - Susan Sheldon Stribling
Susan Stribling Memorial# 67513789 (Fairplay Presbyterian Church Cem.) and Memorial
58163426 (Beaverdam Presbyterian Church Cemetery).

Perhaps the name of the Church changed. Your memorial at Beaverdam has the most information on it. This person has nothing to do with my research - I just happened to see it when searching for my folks! The contributor for the Fairplay memorial has their messages disabled.
Thanks for all you do for FindaGrave.
Regards

General Loranza Whitmire
Hi! Patty McG: Both of them are in the same place. One is erroneously listed in Lake Toxaway. They arfe both near Middlefork, south of Rosman.

Old Toxaway Cemetery <---DON'T USE
Also known as: Old Toxaway Baptist Church UPPER Cemetery is the "closed" cemetery, and the person who put in the records has a very restrictive message on the cemetery profile page. It is an "inactive" cemetery, right next to the other one.
It is at: http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=cr&CRid=2474018

Old Toxaway Baptist
Church Cemetery <--USE THIS ONE
It is known as the LOWER cemetery.
Lake Toxaway
Transylvania County
North Carolina USA
Here again, these are both on the road going past the Rosman dump toward the Wilds (and another) camp, south of Rosman. Neither are anywhere near the town or Lake of Toxaway! These are about 15 miles away down US 64 west!
The website for this cemetery to use is:
http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=cr&CRid=2185418

Dawn J McCall claims to "own" the info she had put on the Upper cemetery's website (she says copyrighted). Her husband, Kenneth Eugene McCall, is buried in the LOWER
cemetery: Find A Grave Memorial# 91853111.

So, until we know any better and using that Ancestry.com family tree as a reference that I sent earlier, you could put General Loranza Whitmire in the LOWER cemetery, along with Kenneth McCall :)

Cheers!
PATTY McF.

Absalom Buck
Patty: i just sent an edit to add the parents of Absalom Buck - William S. Buck and Rebecca Pippin Buck are buried at Mazarn Chapel Cemetery in Arkansas. Actually Absalom Buck's name is on their stone because the family placed that memorial with all the names of the children on it. WE were glad to find where he is actually buried. Thanks. Ruth Smith
