Bio and Links
I am retired from full time employment after 40 years in industry and I am currently a management trainer and consultant working with companies throughout North America. My focus is Safety and Loss Contol Systems. I travel about 20 weeks a year with a current focus in Canada at the oil sands of Northern Alberta.

My wife got me interested in genealogy and I then got bit with the "Find A Grave" bug. It is rewarding to assist others in their quest.

I am surprised how many gaps there are in the listed people at the cemeteries. Some have been relocated and others were just improperly listed. It is indeed dependent on the volunteers to supply this needed information.

I try to take pictures that illustrate the location of the grave and the features of the monument.If you have any special needs for the Western North Carolina Area, send me an email.

If you have any special request or would like to manage the memorial, please contact me.

My big quest is to locate the parents of Kinson Middleton. One line ends with him in 1885 with his death. Tons of information about him, but no factual information that leads anywhere. Rumors, but no facts.

I try to take pictures that illustrate the location of the grave and the features of the monument.

I have read some of the Bio where the person thinks they are special and sound like an attorney with what should be fun. If I can help, please ask.

If you have any special request or would like to manage the memorial, please contact me.

Thank you for the headstone photo; however, it appears to be on the wrong George Painter. Can you remove it and re-add it to 80227389?

Thanks. LG

Lost relative in Western NC
My GG Grandmother Selena Thompson mother of Grank Thompson, Otis Nelson Thompson/Lynch, Lettie Thompson-Arledge-Pate-Sentell, Joseph Thompson and William David "Dave" Thompson is missing.

She was alive in the middle of 1900 when the census was taken and deceased in Jan 1905 when her youngest son married.

If in your vast searches of the area you ever run across anyone who could be her PLEASE let me know. The father of her children was Frank Lynch also can not be found.

Her parents may or may not have been David Thompson and Nancy Pack-Thompson. I thought they were for many years but now am uncertain after reading his will.

I am at a dead stop on this line. Earliest census shows White Oak Township and later Dave lives in Tryon.

Photo Question
Hi, I was just wondering if perhaps you may have added the wrong pic to this memorial: 86654491
If so, I thought you may want to know. Thank you for all your work here at Find a Grave.

Sincerely, Vickie

Thanks for all you do to connect families and aid with genealogical rexearch.
Just left a connection for Joseph Jones and Margaret Lucinda Pace. This can be verified in the Refuge Baptist Church Record Book if it needs to be verified.
Thank you again
