I think it is important to document family history on the internet because it will be available to others for years to come. I think Find-A-Grave is an excellent site because it is free, and because it allows you to post photos of a person even though you may not be the manager of that person's record. I post my email here with undrscores to thwart internet crawler bots. Just omit the underscores to get my email address. j_h_e_a_r_n_1_0_0_0_@_g_m_a_i_l_._c_o_m|

Thank you for pointing out the link to her mother. I also corrected the spelling of the name Ceasar for her spouses memorial.

Thanks for the information on John Franklin Brower. His mother's maiden name, like my own mother's, is Kime. And he would be something like my 3rd cousin, 3x removed. Seeing as he's your GG grandfather, I'm happy to transfer his memorial to you.

Oh, you are most welcome. Thanks for letting me know. Hope you have a great day!

Thanks so much for the correction and information for links to her mother and father. I made all the suggested changes.
|Amy Robbins-Tjaden||RE: Wake Forest Cemetery|
My husband and I are in the process of trying to systematically photograph the entire Wake Forest Cemetery. We have taken many photos there over a few years but now we're trying to ensure no stones get overlooked. Since our cameras are better now than the ones we had before, sometimes we're deleting old photos and adding what we think are better ones to memorials. If there are any folks you want us to keep a special lookout for as we do this, please let me know.

I think I hit the mother load. Dock Murphey's name was Doctor (Dock) Franklin Jauid Murphy, born 19 Feb 1837 - died 23 June 1896. U. S, War Dept application for a headstone. Headstone delivered to G. W. Murphy. Dock was buried in the "Family Burying Ground. Now if we could figure out where that is we would be able to find Doc. Dock's grand-father was John Stallings buried in the Stallings family cemetery in Cedar Rock and I had a suspicion he was buried there, but there is no headstone for Doc there. Any ideas?

As requested, the full middle name has been added to this entry. Thank you.
Sorry about the empty space!!!
I am the Great Granddaughter of WIlliam Bailey Royall and recently visited the WF Cemetery and Museum etc. from where I live in NY State. I took A LOT of photos and see that I DO NOT have one of a stone for Benjamin Franklin Powers (1895-1934). Was he buried in the POWERS plot?
Would you like me to e-mail you some of the photos which I took at the Cemetery?
Thanks for your "job" with Find A Grave!!! Maggie McClure

Thanks for the picture. I orignally started the pineview cem. findagrave for it's historical value to Rocky Mount. The Thorp family is very interesting. Back in their history were many prominent Doctors. Section 43 was not their original burying grounds. The old Rocky Mount airport was. The 1933 Airports Directory described Rocky Mount's Eagle Airport as located 1/2 mile north of Rocky Mount, consisting of a 4 acre rectangular sand & sod field measuring 1,400` by 1,200`. In 1934 it more than doubled in length to accomendate landing aircraft. It is speculated at this time, the city & or the air port authority paid to have moved (all thorp's)some 60 grave bodies. For its historical value your request at this time is only pending. Lt. Bill
