Bio and Links
Bio Photo Born in North Carolina, but have also lived in New York, Maryland, Virginia, Delaware, Washington DC, and South Carolina. Graveyards and tombstones have always been a curiosity to me, and I always wanted to know something about the people buried there. I was a data entry operator for many years, also a history and genealogy addict. Since being retired, I've put those things to use to help make sure that people (and pets) that I put into Find A Grave are more than just names on a tombstone.


Since the exact places of some of our ancestors will never be known for sure---like those who were buried on their own property and/or have simple field stones for markers---I believe that those people also deserve to be remembered and connected to their families. So I will gladly connect the "unknowns" since they are just as important links as those we do know about. It does help to know the dates if possible. But then you do have some that can't possibly still be alive, and yet no-one knows for sure what happened to them---even they deserve our respect.

I would like to add that I do try to cooperate with everyone, and am happy to do so, but expect to be spoken to with decency and respect when being asked to make any type of change. (As I've come across a few people that were downright pushy and rude). Advice to nasty people---"let sleeping dogs lie".

Anderson Hanes Cemetery
Hello,

I am the great great granddaughter of William McKenzie Chisman and Margaret Augusta Rawls Anderson Chisman, who are buried in the Anderson Hanes Cemetery at Pine Hall in Stokes Co. I will be visiting the area soon and was curious if the cemetery was open to the public? I don't want to trespass, but would like to visit. You created the records for my great great grandparents. I am hoping you can help. Also, of course, please tell me if we are related!

Hello! I have been slowly adding photos to the memorials at this cemetery. Yesterday, I went and took about 40 pics, and today I'm going to try to finish. Anyway, I spoke with the Church Historian. There are a lot of graves missing--when the railroad tracks were put in for Ogburn Station, gravestones were moved by the RR but not the graves. Many of those stones were lost. In 1969, a car went through the grave yard and knocked out about 20 stones. About 5 years ago, a drunk driver took out most of the older stones that were along side of Old Walkertown Road. Thought you might want to add some of this to the page you made for the church & cemetery.

RE: Stewart, Mary Louise Patterson
Hi. I appreciate your replying. Mary Louise and her older sister Eugenia were my father's sisters. I knew both of them very well, and they did look very much alike. On seeing the photo on Mary Louise's Find-a-Grave website I took it to be a photo of Mary Louise too. But when I searched recently on Ancestry.com for a yearbook photo of her older sister Eugenia, it led me to this issue of The Sage, and not to the photo but another page of whimsical comments on students, and Eugenia, not Mary Louise, was named there. That sent me on through the rest of the volume and lo! I saw the picture with the name Mary Louise Patterson over it. The Sage had only the members of the senior class, the class of 1918. Mary Louise was born in 1910 and would have been 8 years old in 1918. Eugenia was born in 1900 and was a member of the senior class. She and a male member of that class came back in 1920 and sang together in a concert in Greensboro, each having studied music elsewhere. Just two years before the picture was taken--in 1916--Mary Louise was described in a newspaper as a "little flower girl" in a relative's wedding. So there's plenty of evidence that the young lady in the photo is Eugenia. But I'm very glad you put it up. Otherwise it would not have occurred to me to look for yearbook photos of them! I think Eugenia herself probably was in on this teenage prank. Pranks ran in the family. The really astonishing thing is that I've been unable to find an issue of The Sage for any other year until, as I recall, about 1950! If you know where I could find issues from the 1920s, please let me know. And please accept my thanks for connecting me with this bit of family past. Cordially, Dan Patterson

The photograph from The Sage, 1918, p. 44, is not that of Mary Louise (who, as her gravestone shows, was born in 1910 and was therefore 8 years old in 1918). Her older sister Eugenia was the one who graduated that year. Eugenia or the editor was playing a teenage prank. Please remove the photograph but accept thanks for your good intentions.
