RE: George Ross Patton, Sr.

No apology necessary. Just trying to clarify which cemetery the tombstone is in. The memorial you have posted is more complete than the original one. I thought since you had also uploaded the picture of the tombstone that the grave is likely in the Oak Island Presbyterian Cem.
I also sent an email to the creator of the memorial that is in the Cotton Gin Cemetery to ask if they had documentation that his grave is in that cemetery. The general findagrave rules are that the earlier memorial takes precedence and the later duplicate memorial is usually transferred to the owner of the earlier memorial and they merge the two (usually with credits to the transferor for the additional information); but if you're a relative they may consider the reverse. Hope this helps.

Oak Island Cemetery
I just wanted to let you know that I located my Grandparents (Patterson) in the Oak Island Cemetery. I went by today to visit the cemetery and take photos of their markers, if I could find them.
when I got there, I found that it had been mowed. I decided to photograph all the markers that I could find while I was there. Just thought I would warn you that you may get quite a few edits from me. Have a great weekend and thanks for your all your time that you invest in Find A Grave!

RE: Remove the block to add pics.
I tried before sending message for some reason it will not let me upload a pic. Give me some time to contact findagrave admin. It says you blocked it maybe just a glitch in.findagrave system. Will get back to you my cousin is going to take another pic for me with powder anyway.

RE: Your suggestion:
The suggestion simply is:
Is the name Veronica ?
Veronic is not a usual spelling.

Thank you
Myrtle Estelle Gillaspie (Milburn) is my grandmother.
Thank you for the info on the Noland family. They would be related to her (cousins), I'm still trying to get the family tree put together so I can know how they are related to me. TJ or Thomas Jefferson Gillaspie is her father # 152075970, How ever I haven't come acrose a spelling Gillispie. There are some spelled Gillespie. Don't know who Hugh Gillispie is?
