Bio and Links
Bio Photo Besides working on my own family tree I'm building trees here and on to link the men, women and children buried at the state hospitals in Morganton, NC, Goldsboro, NC, Brattleboro, VT, Rusk, TX, New Toronto, Canada and in CT with their loved ones. I have also listed those buried at the Caswell Training Center in Kinston, NC and Letchworth Village in NY and hope to have assistance in linking them to their loved ones.

I grew up in Greenville county, SC, first in the city of Greenville, then at the foot of Glassy Mountain in the "Dark Corner" where my maternal grandmother and her parents and grandparents were born. My mother, Anne Ballenger King McCuen, worked for decades as a meticulous land historian in upper SC and published several research texts. My father, William Garrison McCuen, MD worked for decades as an internist/general practitioner caring for many of the upstate SC residents in their homes, hospitals, the Veterans' clinic and his office.

Now I am in the foothills of NC, but enjoy maintaining family property near Glassy Mtn.

You hereby have my express permission to use ANY photo I have made and posted to Find a Grave for your own purposes - but I would appreciate a credit notation as the source should you repost it on your family tree, for this reflects the efforts made in preserving the record and may also provide a link to others interested in that person or cemetery.

I "inherited" a number of memorials posted by Buck Buchanan who introduced me to FAG and will happily transfer them to family. Just send a SAC stating your relationship and I'll be pleased to turn them over to your care. Alternatively, if you are working to identify folks in a particular cemetery where Buck posted memorials and would like to manage the memorials he posted - just let me know and I'll be happy to transfer them to your management. I have found that Buck duplicated a few of the memorials he posted (and on occasion so have I) - if you find that to be the case please let me know so I can remove the duplicates.

As for those of you who assist me in making these memorials useful and respectful, "thanks" and please keep your helpful edits coming.

A lot of conflicts might be avoided among us if each of us will accept and act as if this is about those who've gone before and NOT about us.

Hi, The duplicate memorial has been deleted and the photo transferred to the original posting. I hadn't even realized I'd doubled up, so I do appreciate when people let me know. Thanks for the work you do here.

Hi Susannah -

Are you family and related to Peter? I am looking for family!

I have accepted your edit. I hope to add bio info soon to his memorial. There is so much to add, and will do a little at a time.

Cheers from Washington State-

RE: Flat Rock duplicates
thanks, do you have any others in that cemetery that need to be checked against the other Flat Rock too?

RE: Weston State Hospital
Fortunately, the old hospital buildings were saved by a private investor. They are slowly re-doing the interior. Unfortunately, it has become a amusement type atmosphere (with ghost hunts and all) but the funds need to come from somewhere to save the old buildings. Their website is at:

It is truly a beautiful and spectacular place.
