Bio and Links
Bio Photo I finally had to change my profile picture. The old picture of my youngest son was quite out of date considering he's going into 2nd grade next year :( He still enjoys going out to take pictures with me so there's still hope for him!
There are so many old cemeteries in this part of NC so we are trying to post as many interments as possible to help all you researchers out. Also, most of the stones they used for markers in the 1800's are not standing up to the elements very well so it's a race against time to get as many pictures as possible. If you are looking for more NC relatives, I am working with the team of volunteers at cemeterycensus.com. They have surveyed and taken pictures of a ton of cemeteries in central NC.

One of the most popular questions I get emailed is asking permission to use "my" photos. The short answer is yes, you can use any pictures I have taken. I don't require references or accreditation because that's not why I joined the website and volunteer to take photos. I don't consider them my property unless you use them to somehow make millions of dollars (then I'd appreciate a small kickback) :)

Actively working on Oakwood cemetery in Mebane, NC. I've done two of the largest sections so it looks like it's all downhill now!

Look at you guys! Since Findagrave has gone to the new edit system you all have sent me 4,639 edits & corrections. Keep up the great work!

John Walter Jarrett Memorial
Jason & Mitzi,
I notice that you posted a memorial for John Walter Jarrett. He was my Grandfather, Samuel Luther Jarrett's brother.
The information you posted is mostly correct. You have a sibling as Walter Cornett Jarrett which is incorrect. Walter Cornett's mother was Lucy not Martha Wlizabeth (Pattie)Brown Jarrett.
Dee Reynolds has John Walter's information posted on Walter Cornett's memorial that she created.
I have contacted her and requested that she remove
it.
By the way, you might want to link his daughter
Ruby Bray to his memorial.
Thanks.

Quincie M Carter at Pine Hill Cemetery
Hi there,

I am helping my cousin build her family tree. Her grandmother was Quincie Ann Moore Carter whom is buried at Pine Hill Cemetery. I see that you created this record and have listed Quincie's parents as being Robert E Moore and Lou Ellen Patterson Moore. I was curious to see where you found this information? We are having the worst trouble hunting down the family lineage of Quincie. Her funeral announcement that her son had listed her parents as Robert E and Nellie Duggins Moore. Upon researching further I have found evidence that strongly supports Nellie Duggins Moore was in no way Quincie's mother. However upon finding a census from 1920 of Robert E and Lou Ellen Moore I do not find them having a daughter name Quincie either. So frustrating!! Any help you can provide is greatly appreciated.

Thank you!!

RE: Mary Elizabeth (Crumpton) Barham
Don't think I have anything more to add. During the time we are discussing, readin' & ritin' weren't priorities. Census takers (especially the lazy ones) penciled in their own version of what the name sounded like. Then there was the Civil War when many souls were lost and mountains of formal records burned in southern court houses. A lot of factors contribute to difficulty documenting peoples' past. I found one legible headstone in (my ancestral) Bailey Family Cemetery. The cemetery is in a dense thicket in the corner of a forested farm field in Rockingham County. I think I am the last family member that knows where it is located. All but a couple of markers are nothing more than a little pile of rubble among the trees. Challenges, challenges, challenges.

I cannot get back any further than my Mitchell paternal grandfather and know nothing of my great grandfather. I am back to the mid 600's on my wife's side, in contrast.

RE: Mary Elizabeth (Crumpton) Barham
Thanks for the follow up. Mary is 1st spouse of my 1st cousin, Joel Green Barham. Guess we could pick about any birth year for her. However, I do tend to place more confidence in the earlier records.

1850 census; age 9 (c 1941); living with mother
1860 census; age 22 (c 1938)
1870 census; age 30 (c 1840)
1880 census; age 41 (c 1839)

Grave marker; age 56y 4m 22d (I may not be reading this correctly in photo; do you have a better "read" on it up close and personal?); DOB calculates to 6 March 1836 unless I am misreading age on grave marker.
