Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born and raised in Atlanta, but have lived most of my adulthood in Charlotte, North Carolina. Coincidentally I ended up right where my roots are on my father's side of the family. Genealogy is my passion and I never met a cemetery I didn't like. I'm also into historic preservation, both of buildings and the lives of people no longer with us.

As the daughter of a general and great-granddaughter of 3 Confederate veterans, I like to note military records of veterans on their findagrave memorials.

I welcome corrections/additions, but will no longer link to a "burial unknown" person. I have found this leads to duplicates.

FAMILIES ON MY FATHER'S SIDE: Irwin, DeWeese, Blackwelder, Babcock, Taylor, Wilbon.

FAMILIES ON MY MOTHER'S SIDE: Bryan, Battle, Pope, Atkinson, Yarbrough, Chappell.

Thanks Susan for the information on burial location. I moved Rufus to the York Memorial Park in Charlotte. His parents are also buried there.

RE: Lawrence Williams
Hopefully you were able to take an updated photo of the correct spelling of my father's name. Could you possibly post this picture for me? Sharon Memorial said that it was corrected on the marker. Thank you so much for all that you do!

I was wondering if there are any descendants of Emsley Pleslar and his wife Ella Miriam Campbell Pleslar still living. Ella was married previously to a Lonnie M. Lockamy and had a daughter named Blannie Louise Lockamy who married Sigsby C. Tadlock on Oct. 4, 1940 in Mecklenburg County, N.C.

Honbarger's of North Carolina
Hi, Susan, I found the Find A Grave memorial for a Luther Honbarger, son of John V. Honbarger,and I'm wondering if he had a brother or half brother named Harlan Vasco "Bill" Honbarger? I don't know if you are related or just created the memorial site doing your volunteer work? I am trying to find any relatives/children of Harlan...I believe my mother may have been married to him in the early 1940s before she married my father. I can find several marriage and divorce records for this Harlan V. Honbarger but none list my mother, Della. If you have any information, I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you, LLaPage

I added a note-that I needed proof.
I always require proof of a change.
We don't have any choices of the first line- so I used the closest to what I wanted, and on the line under it- I ask for proof.

I will be glad to change it or add to it-or whatever- but require proof.

(Census records, death record or whatever)

Thank you for posting Farr information. This is my mom's line, and I'm too far away (mile-wise) to have taken photos for myself. Thank you again!

I am trying to verify if this is Mary Choate who married a Riddle that attended the Due West Women's (Erskine) College in Due West, SC 1905-06-07. Any information would be helpful.
