Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a Retired Registered Nurse and an avid Genealogist. I live in Western NC. I have been doing family research since 1978. Most of my memorials are family or allied lines to my family. Some are from cemeteries I have visited in other counties and states. If you have a request for transfer of ownership and you are related to the person in the Memorial, let me know. Also I will be happy to link family members. I am also a photo volunteer if the photo is in my county of McDowell, NC. I have been a FaG Contributor for over 10 years and 1/2 years. Please make your request using the edit tab.
(I am researching these families)

I recently, (2013) found WPA records for the state of North Carolina. I am entering these records as I can. I have not visited these cemeteries. I do not plan to attempt finding them. I am making the effort to ensure not to duplicate. I will always indicate which records are from the WPA or Works Project Administration. I can offer no further information on these WPA records.

Good morning, I too am related to Amos..thru his brother Oliver Hughes. I'm sorry to say that I don't know where the parents are buried. I believe that it's most likely to be in Ramseytown, Yancey County, NC. That is where they were living with their son, James, on the last census that they appeared in. If you would like to, you can e-mail me at I hope you hear from you, I have next to nothing on Samuel. He married Sarah Sheehan right?

Simmons & Loftis
I just noticed that you, like me, are doing LOFTIS & SIMMONS as well. (my husband Donny's side) Donny's G grandfather, JOHN "JACK CALVIN LOFTIS married REBECCA MASHBURN. Her mother was NANCY SIMMONS (1830) making Simmons Donny's GG grandmother. Manuel & Anna SIMMONS , Nancy's parents are Donny's GGG grandparents.
So you may be connected to me through my marriage also. Small world huh?

RE: Family Tree
Good Morning Cousin. It is so nice to meet you too. New found family ALWAYS excites me. I dont know if I have Mary Polly in my tree on ancestry but I will look. I have now added her as Katherine (Katy) Effler Lannings sister on my Personal Ancestral File. Please contact me at any time if there is a chance that I can help with anyone. The "living" can be a challenge to get info on sometimes. THANK YOU for sharing. Any Time or to just say HI!
