|Irene||Dulcie Bodford/Floyd Wheeler|
Ya know, I've realized over 25 yrs of doing this research that eventually I will be related to all the old families of Yancey Co. I was trying to locate Floyd Wheeler's burial (Floyd son of my great-uncle Hiram Newton Wheeler, son of John Henry Wheeler who is buried at Ogle Meadows), and find he was married to Dulcie Bodford. His death certificate states he was buried at Pete Young Cemetery (he died at Spruce Pine in 1973). But I do not find him listed at Pete Young Cemetery.

|Karyn Buckner Garvin||RE: Samuel & Victoria Hensley|
Hi, thanks for the response.
Elizabeth had her entries on Find a Grave (Dec 2009) a year before your entries were added here (Dec 2010). I am just notifying you (and her as well) that based on what I've found it looks as if the same property has been added on Find A Grave twice, hence the duplicate entries for these folks in two different cemeteries here.
Personally, I prefer to also physically visit a cemetery for my work, when I can; but we do not have to actually travel to a cemetery to document it. We can use other sources to add information to Find A Grave, such as obituaries, death certificates, surveys, burial and church records, etc. If Find A Grave required someone to have actually visited the site to enter memorials, that would preclude people who are physically unable to travel or walk through a cemetery from participating on the site. We just have the added responsibility of ensuring what we add is correct, and things like this happen from time to time, especially when a cemetery may be known under more than one official or accepted local name. North Carolina has SO many old, tiny family cemeteries; this is one of those times an extra search by county or state helps to see if entries are already on here under one of those AKA names.
I do not know where Elizabeth got her information; from your comment you are suspicious she took the information from something you had posted on the internet, on another site. You will have to ask her about that; however, facts such as dates of birth and death are not copyrightable.
This is a very good article given to me when I had some questions about copyright:
Copyright Fundamentals for Genealogy
it even uses an example of surveying a cemetery and what is not protected by copyright ("the facts that are included in the compilation aren't protected....")
These two cemeteries need to be merged; that will not merge the individual duplicate entries, that has to be done manually either by having Admin do it one by one, or one set gets deleted.
|Irene||Hunter's Chapel cemetery?|
Have you heard of this cemetery, possibly in Mitchell Co.? John Henry Wheeler's second (and last) wife, Sarah Matilda Duncan Guthrie Wheeler died Jan 1919 at Grassy Creek Twp. in Mitchell Co. (result of the great Spanish Influenza epidemic.) Her death certificate states she was buried at "Hunter's Chapel Cemetery". I cannot seem to find this cemetery anywhere!

55986086 is my 3ed Great Grandfather and I have info from from a news paper article that he was shot and killed by Moses Wilson at or near Anglin's
store on Jack's Creek. The weapon was a Winchester rifle. Joseph died at once and his slayer made
his escape. It goes on to say that the two had been partners in the whiskey business and had a
|Irene||RE: John H. Wheeler's #86402456|
Gwen, I was reviewing my notes on John Henry Wheeler and I find where Kevin White, a descendant of John Henry's sister Joicy, visited John's burial site over 10 years ago. My notes say:
"He is buried near Cane River Gap, at Ogle Meadows, his tombstone and 2 other markers are fenced off; up an abandoned forest logging road; 2 Wheeler infants are buried there also. (Per Kevin White, who has visited the grave site.) His tombstone shows only his CSA unit. Obviously someone wasn't aware of or chose not to mention the fact that the bulk of his service was spent in the 3rd NC Mounted Infantry - a Union unit based in TN."
Don't know if this sheds any light on the matter for you.

|Irene||William Glenn Metcalf buried W-W?|
Wm. Glenn Metcalf, s/o of K. Darleomar Metcalf and Hattie Ellen Wheeler, was born 19 Mar 1912 in Pensacola, Yancey Co.; died 02 Sep 1991 in Asheville. He usually went by Glenn. His death certificate transcription states he was buried in Wheeler-Wilson Cemetery, but neither Elaine Dellinger's inventory nor the findagrave inventory show him. To date, he is not on any findagrave indexes for NC either. Have you come across him in your extensive cemetery travels?

Gwen, do you mean John Henry Wheeler who is buried at Ogle Meadows? Or Rev. John Wheeler who is buried in the Silver Cemeterey in Pensacola?

|SilverRose||RE: Thomas Silvers|
Got it! Came through great. Thank you so much for all the information. Much appreciated!
|SilverRose||Searching for a family member|
I see that you have worked with the US archives project and here. First, THANK YOU for both!
Now, for my question. Records on Find A Grave show that my Family member is buried in Silvers Cemetery, Find A Grave Memorial # 60858007. However, when doing further research, there is documentation from US Veterans Gravesites that he is buried at Pensacola Cemetery in Asheville, NC.
Since you are more familiar with sites in the area, what do you suggest?
