Bio Photo ***********************************************
Please review Find A Grave's transfer policy: "Transferring of management should only be requested If you have extensive changes to make to a memorial. You can add photos and suggest corrections without having to request management. Simply having someone in your family tree is not grounds for a management transfer request. With hundreds of thousands of contributors, we have many overlapping family trees and it would be impossible for all contributors to manage their entire tree.

Second, Transfer requests should be for direct relatives within four generations. This would be your siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren."


We live in central North Carolina. My late husband is from Barren County, KY, so a lot of the genealogy that we worked on is from that area.

Our main surnames in NC are McDade, Foreman, Weaver and Lashley. In KY Kerley, Branstetter, Jenkins, Simmons, Chism and Howard.

We have taken digital photos of tombstones in our area which are then posted on Cemetery Census.

Her father & my grandfather were brothers. She is my second cousin. Her roots began in Madison County, N.C. She is a decendant of the three brothers who came to Western N.C. & Eastern Tennesse in 1790's.
