Bio and Links
Bio Photo Native of North Carolina.
I became interested in family history in May 2010 when my mother's sister passed away. All three sisters had passed within three years! It made me realize that the older generation was leaving and if I wanted to know more about our family, I better start asking questions! I got very interested in family history and discovered that I really enjoy visiting eastern NC cemeteries, taking pictures of headstones, and figuring out who the people were and if/how they were related to me. I focus on Martin County (my dad's family) and Wilson County (my mom's family).

This hobby (obsession?) has been a real blessing in many ways. The best part is meeting relatives I never knew I had, and becoming friends with some of the most wonderful people I've ever known.

Thanks, Deborah, for Cora's headstone photo. I was so hoping Mr. Bell might have been with her. He's a puzzle.

Thanks so much for the headstone photos! It's much appreciated. Your bio reminded me of my beginnings in genealogy in 1986. In 1988, while living in NYC, I took a month long genealogy trip to the West Coast to meet all my newly-found cousins and to visit family. I taped all my interviews with everyone. Just finished transcribing 14 tapes. It was a treat to hear all their voices as they are all deceased now. And there's no one left to tell their stories. I'm so grateful I took that trip and had the foresight to tape record my interviews. Good luck on your future hunt for your ancestors!

Emma Whitfield
Hello I am Ronnie Whitfield and I am trying to find the grave sites of my grandparents .My grandmother;s name was Emma Whitfield she died in jan of 1929 and the death certificate says she was buried in the Whitfield family cemetary in Martin co. NC. I did find a family cemetery in Robersonville but there are no names that match unless they are in an unmarked plot. My grandfathers name was John Neal Whitfield we can't find any info on him at all but we do know he past before Emma. All of your help would be a blessing if you know of anything please email me at chart7@embarqmail.com. Thank you very much

Thanks so much for taking the time to take and upload the photos of Rosa and her husband.

It's altruistic volunteers such as yourself that enable people to have photos they might not otherwise be able to obtain on their own.

Thank you, again.
