It all started with Deep Branch Baptist in Lumberton, NC and Clover Hill Methodist in Lawndale, NC on my mom's side and Walnut Grove Baptist in Moravian Falls, NC on my dad's side. It was amazing to me that I was related to that many people buried in those cemeteries.

Haynes David Locklear Hello, I am looking for info on Haynes D Locklear. I know his date of birth, when he died. I know he lived in Florida when he died, and his brothers and sisters also, and they all have passed too. My interested in him is my mother was married to him in 1961. And I am trying to find out if he is my biological father. My mothers name was Betty Jean Braddock at the time. I don't know how long they were married.

Newton Family Hello, I have been searching on ancestry and I have come across the information that you have provided on here alot. I would like to know if you have any information on Mary Ann Turner, Thomas Peirce Newtons wife and her parents.
Lumbee nurses Thank you for so much information. 3 other early Lumbee nurses were Eva Brewington Sampson (1932-2014) who graduated from nursing school in 1970 and spent a 25 year career heading student health services at UNC-P. and 2 military nurses: Mary Brayboy who nurses in OK during the VietNam war and Brenda Finnicum who started service in the US Army nurse Corps in 1978.
I want to find out more about an unnamed nurse in Dr. Malinda Lowery's book Lumbee Indians in the Jim Crow South where on page 161 she writes "The project (Pembroke Farms) also employed a nurse, the farm's only permanent Indian employee. Her duties centered on curbing the area's malaria, tuberculosis, syphilis and other diseases through treatment and education".
I have written Dr. Lowery and haven't received a reply. Do you know who she is talking about? Thanks again for all your great information. Phoebe
Viola Lowery Armstrong Hi, I have a history of nursing in NC website www.nursinghistory.appstate.edu and I very much want to add information about early Lumbee Registered Nurses. I understand that Viola Lowery Armstrong was the first. Do you know of others? perhaps the first Lumbee nurse to work in Robeson County/Pembroke/Scotland County area? Also, do you have a photograph of nurse Armstrong or know how I can read her obituary? Thanks a lot and sorry for all the quesitons. Phoebe Pollitt
Old Ebenezer UMC Cemtery - Hemphills I would really appreciate a copy of the Ebenezer cemetery headstones, that include Melinda Burgin Hemphill and Mary Ann Mackie Hemphill that you have posted on Find A Grave, to share on my Ancestry family file. My 2nd great-grandmother was Mary Ann Hemphill, wife of James Lette/Leach McEntire. Thank you for taking the time to photograph and document the headstones at Old Ebenezer UMC cemetery. I visited the cemetery years ago, but my old camera took very poor photos. Ronnie "Ronnalee" (Scovel) Brothers San Antonio, Texas
