Bio and Links
Bio Photo The attached photo is from 411 N. Wilmington St. Raleigh NC, my mother's childhood home. A home which no longer exists along with many others in the surrounding area between Peace College and the State Capitol.

I have a interest in Wake Co genealogy researching primarily family connections here for the last 5 years. My surnames include Carver, Gill, John Davis d Aug 1829, Dunn, High, Horn, Moring,and Taylor(Nash Co) maternal line.

Surnames in Rockingham and Caswell Co include Alcorn AKA Alcon,Betts,Fitzgerald,Mills,Nunnally,Powell,Robertson,Stubblefield paternal line and so many more families with ties to these counties and beyond.

A resident of Somerset Co, NJ for 28 years.

I've posted many photos from the NC yearbook collection which are available on at line at ncgenweb.us/nc/bookshelf/yearbooks/ The vast majority of photos I have used are from 1930 and earlier yearbooks. After contacting several schools over the use of these photos and copyright law, I have been told as long as I'm not profiting from them and have listed the source, I'm in compliance with the law under the guideline of fair use. As of early 2012 and ancestry including yearbooks on their website, the issue of photos and copyright issues would appear to be a mute point. If a family member wishes me to remove any photo I have posted, just let me know.

Most memorials I have added have been to Oakwood & Montlawn. Genealogy is my first love. I enjoy finding the elusive badly transcribed records that help document a family. I think the 1940 Wake census on ancestry may be the worst yet. As of April 2016, I can identify 6100+ individuals in my extended tree that are buried at Oakwood, 4100+ at Montlawn with a total database of 91300+ individuals. Any memorial I add will based on a combination of death, census and Oakwood records. The memorial's and photo's I add are done so with much respect to that individual, their family and the history of North Carolina. The majority of the memorials will be part of my Wake County "Six Degrees of Separation" Tree. Visits to Oakwood in Aug 2012, Aug 2013 & Aug 2015 to take photos.

My findagrave wish list would be a paper scroll symbol to signify there is a paper document which would leave the portrait symbol for actual pictures of people.

I do like to link and if I have not, it is just an oversight on my part. Thanks to all that help with my suggestions/requests and the new edit feature which makes that so much easier now.

My memorials are frequently revisited and updated especially since finding additional records at familysearch.org which ancestry does not have. These records are available to all researchers. Their records include death certificates 1931-1994 and a marriage collection thru 1979. May I respectfully suggest, anyone posting current deaths without a birthdate revisit your memorials and get the birthdate from the social security index which is also available on familysearch.org.

PLEASE refrain from death certficates on my memorials. It should not be necessary in most cases.

If you add an obituary clipping to any of my memorial's, please let me know. It may contain information I do not have.

MAR 2015-I'm now using News Bank to further my research. They have obituaries from the News & Observer starting @ 1991. I have been able to access this online thru my library. Other NC papers are also available.

OCTOBER 2015-This month Family search.org updated one of their NC marriage collection records. You can now view the document & many will include the parents names. These new documents will be invaluable to many researchers.

Lou Della Nowell Nowell
Thank you for contacting me about her parents. I checked further, and her father's name is correct on her death certificate. He is shown as Edward Nowell on the 1860 US census. E. R. P. Nowell married Mary Ann Rhodes. His name was Edward Riley Powell Nowell. I've made a note on Lou Della's memorial about her father's name. I also linked her memorial to her parents' memorials.

RE: Cox/Wilder family
Thanks. I'm glad you already had the information I sent. I'm new to this site so I'm probably not familiar enough with it yet to manage any memorials, but I will keep it in mind when I'm a little more familiar with the site. Thanks again.

Hello,
Although I do make mistakes, this particular type is not common. Anyway, I have made the necessary corrections and I got the birth date from the Billions of Graves site, which also shows a photo of the flat grave marker. Unfortunately, they will no longer allow you to see the whole photo unless you are a member of the site. A year or two back, you could view those pics without paying them for a subscription, but like everything else in this day and age, it's all about the money not the history.
Thanks for pointing out my error.

Thanks

RE: Frances Stephenson Moody
I am sad to say he had a large skeleton in his closet. As he was married to both women at the same time.
