Bio and Links
Bio Photo Researching ancestors with family names Tedder, Thomas, Fulk, Ferguson, Setliff, Barr, Kiser, and others.

Hoping to locate, add, and link as many ancestors and their descendants as possible. Linking often requires the assistance of others who have already added the memorial. Please respond to those like me who request this assistance. If I fail to respond to your request within a month, feel free to add a duplicate memorial; and if you have the time, please search for my obit and add my memorial. But I don't add tombstone inscriptions, so don't ask.

I've noticed that some Find-a-Grave contributors post memorials on this site before an individual is actually buried, sometimes when an individual is still living. I don't know why this bothers me, but it does, It's find-a-grave, not find-a-tombstone or find-an-obiturary. It's not a grave until someone is buried there. But graves do exist without tombstones and without a known location, and I see no problem with memorials for these or for those cremated and not buried in a 'grave'.

I live in northern Wake County, NC , close to Wake Forest (the town, not the university--- that is now in Winston-Salem, NC). If there are any cemeteries nearby that I can check out for you, I'll try to do so.

Bob Carter
Old Friends Cemetery
Hi Don,

I think you may be correct on the location of this cemetery since the Friends Union Friends Cemetery is just inside the Stokes County line from Surry, but the Old Friends Union cemetery is in Surry. I thought for a minute and realized they are two different cemeteries and I have not surveyed the Old Friends Union cemetery, but did survey the other one.

So, forget my other email I sent to you about moving it to Stokes County.

I don't think Janet is active on here anymore. You can add these links via the edit tab on Claudia's memorial and it will go to admins to update in 21 days.

The memorial for Marget Francis Graves has been updated to include the information on the photo. If you want to manage the memorial just let me know. Sorry for the delay.

RE: FAG memorial 100466545
I sent you a message from one of your questions. I did not see the photo of the stone so I really don't know why it would read differently. I will make it a point to look for it the next time I am there. I am not very close but I do make trips a couple times a year for research. I am finding messages from Find a Grave are ending up in my spam box so I am not seeing all of them. I am entering name from an internment list for Black Creek. That is all I have for ones I am not related to. If you find the dates you saw to be correct please contact me again and I will make the changes. Thanks,

Margrett F Graves
I went back through the cemetery list and the dates I have listed are what the book said. I do not see a photo of the marker on the site, but if you know these dates to be wrong I will change the memorial and include the books information as a reference. I will say the list has been consistent up to this point with the tombstones I have seen. Just let me know what you feel best. I am not related and am not doing further research on her at this point. Thanks in advance,

your question about Margaret Graves
I just found your email asking about the dates for Margaret Graves dates. I have a cemetery burial list I used to add the memorials. I will go back through it and double check the dates. I will let you know what I find. I'd the list is inconsistent with the stone, I will most likely use the dates from the marker and have the other listed in the notes. She is not a relieve so I have not researched her life. If you are I will be happy to transfer management. There is not much available about this cemetery online and I really just wanted to make it accessible.

Thank you for providing the information for the memorial I have added it and put you as the contributor.

Her death certificate lists her as Lillie Dell Kinlaw, daughter of Isam Kinlaw and Gennette Taylor. She is shown as being born in Robeson County and dieing at her home in Lumberton, Robeson County, NC
