Bio and Links
Bio Photo As a woman with very deep Southern US roots, how can I not love genealogy? Most of my life I have enjoyed wandering in cemeteries, particularly old ones - pondering over descriptions, inscriptions, ages, etc.

I'm especially interested in these surnames:
Gibson, McCormick, Brown, Tucker, Wells, Riley, Halstead, Cheshire ...
Renfroe, Owens, Leonard, Hudson, Lobaugh ...

Melanie aka Mama, Dr, Bear, sister, daughter, daughter-in-law, cousin, Auntie, etc ...!

RE: Elizabeth White
Elizabeth's mother (Margaret Montgomery) was not listed, so I added her name and she is 126942115. Parents were Oscar F. E. (or F. F.) Poole and Margaret Montgomery.

Elizabeth Adeline Poole White died in Winston-Salem, Forsyth County, NC.

Here is a link to Elizabeth's brother and his marriage:

RE: Charlie White
Since there is no record on my Find A Grave account when I leave a suggestion on the Find A Grave memorial, you'll have to refresh my memory on which memorial is was and which Find A Grave memorials I suggested as his parents.

RE: George Lobaugh
So sorry Melanie, I gave you the wrong record numbers for George's parents. They both had duplicate records and the record numbers I gave you were deleted. I sent you corrected numbers. Sorry for the mix up, and thanks for the response! Gary

George Lobaugh's memorial record still is displayed. Go to URL that follows:

Please add a Family Links for George Lobaugh's:

You may have to copy and paste the above link to get to his Find A Grave record.

You may transfer his record to me if you'd like.

RE: Gertie Riley
Her parents were James Emmanuel and Eveline Gertrude (Monk) Riley. Both buried at Wesley Chapel. Her first husband was Alex Mathis and he is buried at Skipperville and last husband was Dan Strickland. I do not know where Dan is buried.

RE: Ijames in Palmetto Cemetery
Wow! I didn't expect such a fast response! Thanks so much for making the links. I'll probably have more, but I'm working slowly. I am a very distant relative. No need to transfer management to me.
Thanks again for all you've done and do,

Elbaville United Methodist Church, Advance, Davie County, NC

I just uploaded a picture for an ELIZA BYERLY, wife of HIRAM BYERLY, as shown on her stone. Her birthdate is 29 Aug 1829, died 8 Oct 1901.

Your Anna Elizabeth Zimmerman Byerly at the same cemetery has Eliza's birthdate but different death date.

Is it possible Eliza and Anna Elizabeth are same person? Was wondering if you would like to doublecheck Anna's death date to make sure. Another possibility is that they were twins.
