Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been doing genealogy for over 18 years. Been married for 53 years, have 2 daughters, 3 grandchildren, and 1 great grand daughter. Am so glad to share this info and pictures with families of those I have listed. Genealogy is all about helping each other--a two-way street. Grave stones are one of the best ways to locate family information. There is now a trend to only use years on stones....please do what you can to keep this from happening so future researchers will be able to get complete dates.

Jerry Haynes Crash
Dear Mrs. Tanner,

I am hoping that you are related to HM2 Haynes and have records indicating the names of the three Marines that were killed with him.

All I have is the Futenma Air Station list of crashes and number of casualties (without any names).

I added symbols for them too, and would like to be able to fill-in actual names on my records.

Thanking you, in advance, for any help you can be.

Preston Goforth in War of 1812
Hi Rachel,
I'm a descendant of Preston Goforth (1776-1854).
I see that there was a Preston Goforth who fought in the War of 1812 with the 7th NC Regiment. Is this the same man? I haven't been able to make the link. Thanks!

Craton C Ledford
Hi Rachel,

Please note the death date for Craton Ledford is 1904 on his tombstone. His memorial states 1901. If you would, please correct.
Thanks from a 2rd GGDaughter, Patti

Lizzie Avant
I may have mis-communicated what I was trying to say about Lizzie Avant. The information on her site is correct, but the death certificate posted on her site is the wrong one. It is for a Lizzie Avant who was single and was born in 1885 and died in 1948. Lizzie was the second wife of Richard B Avant. His first wife was Liza Melinda Goude. Liza was the mother of Charles King, Linwood, Henry Burdell, Jonah and maybe others. Lizzie was the mother of Richard D and others. Charles King Avant came to Stanly Co. NC to work on the Badin Power Plant. After Richard Avant died in 1919, Lizzie came to North Carolina to live with Charles in Cabarrus County and died there. Charles King Avant died in 1965 and is buried in Greenlawn cemetery in Rowan County, NC. Henry Burdell Avant died in 1962 and is buried at the National Cemetery in Rowan County, NC.
Lizzie's son, Richard D, died in 1965 and is buried in Georgetown where she is. You probably know all this and I apologize, but I am trying to straighten it out for myself.

Lizzie Avant
The dates on the headstone match the ones on the death certificate of Lizzie Avant who died in Cabarrus Co. NC. Is this area called Avants Cross Road? I am very curious about this.

Can you please remove that? It goes in the bio section of his memorial not Regina's. And it is noted in her biography about the widowed part.

Thank you.

Bruce Mincey
Do you have any further info on Bruce Mincey that died in FL? I am trying to confirm that Solomon Mincey is his father. Thanks for your help!

You have added a photo of the Sunset Memorial Gardens to the Sunset Memory Gardens Cemetery in Graniteville, Aiken County, SC. Please remove it and add the correct one if you desire.
