Bio and Links
Bio Photo I live in Port Orange, Florida and have been researching my family since 1977. I enjoy prowling cemeteries and taking photos of the graves. I figured if I'm walking by a grave why not photograph it for someone else. Some of these older stones are rapidly deteriorating and should be photographed as soon as possible before they're gone.

Also, as a Vietnam vet, I like to honor our service men and women by leaving a virtual flower on their memorial.

I firmly believe we all should learn more of our ancestors and share this information with anyone interested.

My main lines are Orrell, Roberts, Stanley, Alford, Banks, Lowe and Knight. Main states are FL, GA, SC, NC & MD. My wife's lines are Hughart, Carnes & Newhouse of Kanawha Co, WV.

Lois was my mother's first cousin. Her mother-in-law, Mamie Yelvington McDonald, was my grandmother's sister.
Marvin F. Kittrell, Sr.
They were quite resourceful back then. they had a rooming house, a grocery store, drove a bus, and did other things to make a living. It was tough in Volusia County back at that time.
Tell me stories about my second cousin, or first cousin once removed, if you have any you can remember. I knew Aunt Mamie from my days as a little boy growing up in Daytona and we went to the same church.
My mother, was Mamie, a daughter of Nora Yelvington, an older sister of Aunt Mamie as we all called her. I have a picture elf her in my book on the Kittrell Family with allied families that includes the Lewis and Yelvington famiiies in Florida.
Thanks for accommodating my request.

Yelvington family members in Volusia County, Fla
These family members in Volusia County, Fla are the main famiies I am including in my book on the Kittrell, Yelvington, and Whetstone families in Florida and South Carolina. I would appreciate if you would transfer all the Yelvington families you have information on in Volusia County to me. I am starting to include a lot of information and to tie all the family member together. They are buried in Woodland cemetery, Bellevue, Volusia County Mem in Ormond Beach and in Shady Rest cemeteries.
Please let me know if you would do so. At this time I am adding info on the family of John Henry Yelvington (1860-1930 )and his descendants.
My grandmother was Nora Yelvington who married a Lewis from Wilmington, NC. They are buried in Ormond Beach but her siblings are primarily buried in Woodland cemetery. My mother was Mamie Lewis Kittrell (buried along with my father in Ormond Beach Mem cemetery on Nova Road).
Please advise.

Cora Soles Saylor memorial 64667804
This is my maternal grandmother, buried in Daytona Memorial Park, formerly Bellevue Cemetery, in Daytona Beach, Volusia County, FL. There is an error on where she died. She was born 4 Apr 1885 in N Braddock, as stated. She died on 21 Aug 1978 in Americus, Sumter County, Georgia. I would appreciate your correcting this.

Also, what is the appropriate process to transfer this memorial and that of my grandfather, Edwin Wilde Saylor, who is buried next to her, to me? I have information to add and links to make?

Thank you, Robert, for your kindness in doing the work you have done.
