Retired Public Servant, MPA|
I have been doing genealogy research for 30+ years and still enjoy it very much.
I am thankful for the many 'new' cousins I've found via the Find A Grave site, and also thankful for the many new friends I've made via this site.

|Sherlock||RE: Ferguson-McGee Cemetery|
Thanks Ruth. It is a 2 day trip for me to get to that cemetery. I doubt if I ever get the opportunity to go back. I love being in North Carolina where my mother was born.

You have made several memorials in this cemetery. Do you live close enough to take pictures of the tombstones there and attach them to the Find A Grave memorials? George McNeil did a reading of this cemetery years ago and reported that there are lots of unmarked graves. If I lived anywhere near this cemetery I would go back and take pictures. I was there about 15 years ago and should have taken more pictures at the time.

|David Smith||RE: Lizzie Renfro|
I sent you the marriage record I found. The index had her spouse as G.W. West but that was who applied for the license.
|David Smith||RE: Lizzie Renfro|
I know from word of mouth from Aunt Lib that Lizzie was married to Brownlow Flynn. But nothing about Marker. I had found those records too, but without a divorce or marriage, I just didn't put it in the record. Aunt Lib was named for her Aunt Elizabeth, and was the one in the family that knew stuff without making anything up. Hard to pry info from if she didn't want to say. A death certificate for Lizzie would be nice, as would a marriage certificate for the Marker. I'm like you, this is Lizzie, but it would be nice to have proof. She was suppose to have died around 1929, so being in the 1930 census, and Brownlow remarrying in 1931, puts her dying (or divorced) between the census record taking and his marriage.
|David Smith||NR Renfro|
Another mystery Dear Cousin. At Green Mountain, there is an additional N. R. Renfro reading. From a 1994 reading, there was a Nathan R. Renfro 1927-1992, Ronnie Renfro's Dad, my Mom's 1st cousin, then Nathan R. Renfro 1851-1934, my GGranddad of course, but another listing of N.R. Renfro 3 Aug 1880 - 23 Dec 1923. Who is this? Perhaps the stone was mis-read an this is William Jefferson Renfro?
|David Smith||RE: Sidney Eudora Renfro|
I went down to the Carson House in McDowell today, because I remembered seeing a cemetery list some 20+ years ago. That old typewritten listing was gone unfortunately, but there was a 1994 reading and Sidney wasn't listed either. A real danger of findagrave is folks with too much zeal. :)
I'll let you know if I ever find her.
|Jeff Lovelace||RE: John Wesley (J.W.) Stamey|
It is always wonderful to hear from you! I am sure that you have already thanked me for the photo, but you are most welcome for my minor efforts. I am happy to hear that my photo corrected a disagreement about the final resting place of Mr. Stamey. There are so many contributors that maintain their intelligence outweighs everyone else's. It is gratifying to be able to dispel these false assumptions too.
My wife and I are doing alright and my thanks for asking about us.
I have done next to nothing in comparison to the magnificent job that you do on this site. The lack of recognition for a job well done, is all too common here at Find A Grave.
I am saddened to hear that your son is not doing well. He will be in my thoughts and prayers. If you ever need me, please don't hesitate to contact me. You are one of the most precious people I know, and that rarity can easily be counted on one hand.
God Bless You and your family always.
You're so much more than an old friend my dear.
|David Smith||Sidney Eudora Renfro|
In your visits to Green Mountain Cemetery, do you recall seeing a stone for Sidney Renfro? She died from whooping cough as a baby, living from 1939 to 1941.
and thanks for all the work you have done, you have inspired me to make entries too.
|Carolyn Licurgo||Fannie Buff Scism Deal|
Thank you for the information to update Fannie Buff Memorial. Thank you for you contributions to Find A Grave. Carolyn
|Nicol||RE: Photo-Florence A. Wallin|
You're welcome... glad that I found some shade on that picture, some of them get hard to read in full sun
