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.

I want to thank your for the photo! It solved the issue of the death date according to the grave marker.

thanks again,

Hi, I was wondering if you had any more photos of Edith Blackwelder. I found one with that name in a collection of photos of my gg grandmothers but I'm not sure if it's the same person. My grandmother lived around Wellington Kansas. I'm currently gathering up her old photos of people who aren't our family members to try to give to those who are family.

James Richard Custer -

According to his death certificate (on Family Search), his parents were Raymond Custer and Virtle Richards (who later married Thomas E Smith and lived in Michigan per 1930 and 1940 census records).

He is a distant relative of my brother-in-law.Thanks for correcting this!

RE: Lawrence Williams
Hopefully you were able to take an updated photo of the correct spelling of my father's name. Could you possibly post this picture for me? Sharon Memorial said that it was corrected on the marker. Thank you so much for all that you do!

I was wondering if there are any descendants of Emsley Pleslar and his wife Ella Miriam Campbell Pleslar still living. Ella was married previously to a Lonnie M. Lockamy and had a daughter named Blannie Louise Lockamy who married Sigsby C. Tadlock on Oct. 4, 1940 in Mecklenburg County, N.C.

Honbarger's of North Carolina
Hi, Susan, I found the Find A Grave memorial for a Luther Honbarger, son of John V. Honbarger,and I'm wondering if he had a brother or half brother named Harlan Vasco "Bill" Honbarger? I don't know if you are related or just created the memorial site doing your volunteer work? I am trying to find any relatives/children of Harlan...I believe my mother may have been married to him in the early 1940s before she married my father. I can find several marriage and divorce records for this Harlan V. Honbarger but none list my mother, Della. If you have any information, I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you, LLaPage

I added a note-that I needed proof.
I always require proof of a change.
We don't have any choices of the first line- so I used the closest to what I wanted, and on the line under it- I ask for proof.

I will be glad to change it or add to it-or whatever- but require proof.

(Census records, death record or whatever)
