Please review Find A Grave's transfer policy: "Transferring of management should only be requested If you have extensive changes to make to a memorial. You can add photos and suggest corrections without having to request management. Simply having someone in your family tree is not grounds for a management transfer request. With hundreds of thousands of contributors, we have many overlapping family trees and it would be impossible for all contributors to manage their entire tree.

Second, Transfer requests should be for direct relatives within four generations. This would be your siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren."


We live in central North Carolina. My late husband is from Barren County, KY, so a lot of the genealogy that we worked on is from that area.

Our main surnames in NC are McDade, Foreman, Weaver and Lashley. In KY Kerley, Branstetter, Jenkins, Simmons, Chism and Howard.

We have taken digital photos of tombstones in our area which are then posted on Cemetery Census.

Paul Hager?
Requesting any additional information you might have. I have found the accident in the Herald paper for August 25, 1949, and his obit on August 26, 1949 by Clyde Kelly funeral home. He is my Mom's father, she never knew him, but has become more inquisitive in her later years. They state in paper that he is interned in a Veterans plot at Maplewood. Does that mean no family came forward. We are just beginning our search, and are learning as we go. I have contacted the NC Highway patrol about the accident report, but have not heard back yet. Thank you

Above has 2 memorials that are in different cemeteries, both of which you entered... probably one of them should be deleted.
Thank you!

Please include Anthony Wayne Cates, he was the son of John Murphy Cates and Margaret Rhew. His find a grave memorial number is 18591282. His death certificate names them as his parents as well as his marriage certificate.

He was born in Orange County, North Carolina, and Died in Durham, Durham, North Carolina.

His spouse was was Sarah Rhew, her parents were William Rhew and Frances Holloway. She was born

I don't have a memorial # for her but I am hoping you can create one for her. She is buried in the Rose Sharon Baptist Church Cemetery, Durham, Durham, North Carolina. The same one as her husband.

I hope this helps. Look forward to hearing from you,

Little River Cemetery? HELP :-)

Hi there :-) I was wondering whether you might know where this Cemetery is located? It's supposed to be in Mangum Township and could possibly now have a different name, perhaps?
Thanks, Sandi :-)
