Bio and Links
Bio Photo After moving around the country for 38 years, I moved home to Wilkes County, North Carolina where I grew up. I have been looking for my ancestors for almost 50 years now. A lot of the first settlers in this area (Wilkes) migrated on to Georgia, Tennessee, Missouri and many other states. I am a 6th generation descendant of Sarah Boone, the sister to Daniel Boone.

I live within 3-5 miles of the following Baptist Church Cemeteries in the county: Big Ivy, Yellow Hill, Blue Ridge, New Hope. Stony Hill is just up the road and the Lenderman-Powell Family Cemetery is on our property.

In addition to Boone, my other surnames are: Spears, Hamby, Dillard, Cardwell, Ashley, Owens, McGee, Church, Shepherd, Cartwright, Greer and Woodie to name a few.

My grandmother told me when I was growing up ... how do you know where you are going, if you don't know where you have been... I have been chasing those ancestors ever since.

I also do Genealogy Research and would be glad to assist you.

All memorials are entered with the greatest respect.

Please let me know any corrections needed or additions I can help with.

McGee genealogy
You asked if I would share more information on the McGee's but what is on the memorials is all that I have. The McGee's and Ferguson's in that old cemetery are my ancestors, and you are connected to them also. Good to meet another cousin.

RE: Pearl Easter Spears Eller
I can take closeups of Jimmie Eller's markers but there is no marker for Pearl.

William Poplin
Hi Barbara
I don't understand the message you left me about William Poplin's memorial. You indicated mine was a duplicate and I had entered it twice. Mine was posted 12/15/2014, and only once. The other one was posted 1/16/2015, which would make it a duplicate. If this is not what you meant, please clarify it for me.
Thank You

Cardwell and Shepherd
Hi Barbara,

Could you tell me how you are related to the Cardwells and Shepherds? When I get home to my laptop I will Aunt Revonda's Obituary.

Jacqueline Caron Farrar
I think that you might have inadvertently added a memorial for Jacqueline Caron Farrar at Bethlehem Methodist Cemetery in Claremont, NC. I have thoroughly searched that cemetery for her tombstone and can not find one. Is it possible that she was buried at Bethlehem United Methodist Church in Statesville, Iredell County since she died in Statesville and her funeral services were conducted there? What do you think?

RE: Jenny Hamby
Thanks for responding to my message Barbara. Sometimes memorials are made in the wrong cemeteries and folks waste their time and effort looking for a tombstone that is not there. Hopefully you can find more information on Jenny Hamby.
