|Bio and Links|
The attached photo is from 411 N. Wilmington St. Raleigh NC, my mother's childhood home. A home which no longer exists along with many others in the surrounding area between Peace College and the State Capitol.|
I have a interest in Wake Co,researching the surnames Carver, Gill, John Davis d Aug 1829, Dunn, High, Horn, Moring,and Taylor maternal line
Surnames in Rockingham and Caswell Co Alcorn AKA Alcon,Betts,Fitzgerald,Mills,Nunnally,Robertson,Stubblefield paternal line and so many more families with ties to these counties and beyond.
A resident of Somerset Co, NJ for 28 years.
I've posted many photos from the NC yearbook collection which are available on at line at ncgenweb.us/nc/bookshelf/yearbooks/ The vast majority of photos I have used are from 1930 and earlier yearbooks. After contacting several schools over the use of these photos and copyright law, I have been told as long as I'm not profiting from them and have listed the source, I'm in compliance with the law under the guideline of fair use. As of early 2012 and ancestry including yearbooks on their website, the issue of photos and copyright issues would appear to be a mute point. If a family member wishes me to remove any photo I have posted, just let me know.
I'm trying to add more records at Oakwood & Montlawn, however genealogy is my first love. I enjoy finding the elusive badly transcribed records that help document a family. I think the 1940 Wake census may be the worst yet. As of Oct 2013 I can identify 4100+ individuals in my extended tree that are buried at Oakwood, 1600+ at Montlawn and with a total database of 61300+. Any memorial I add will based on a combination of death, census and Oakwood records. The memorial's and photo's I add are done so with much respect to that individual, their family and the history of North Carolina. I try to link memorials or add other details that may be useful to someone's research. The majority of the memorials will be part of my Wake County "Six Degrees of Separation" Tree. Visits to Oakwood in Aug 2012 & Aug 2013 to take photos.
My findagrave wish list would be a paper scroll symbol to signify there is a paper document which would leave the portrait symbol for actual pictures of people.
I do like to link and if I have not, it is just an oversight on my part. I try not to be overly with other members, but thanks to all that help with my suggestions/requests.
My memorials are frequently revisited and updated especially since finding additional records at familysearch.org which ancestry does not have. These records are available to all researchers. Their records include death certificates 1931-1994 and a marriage collection thru 1979. May I respectfully suggest, anyone posting current deaths without a birthdate revisit your memorials and get the birthdate from the social security index which is also available on familysearch.org.
PLEASE, no death certificates on my memorials. Would you want one on your own family? I don't think so.
It has recently come to my attention the GPS location for individuals buried at Oakwood can be found in the recently updated database. Find your individual within the official Oakwood database and then click on Map. If you're requesting a photo for any of my memorial's at Oakwood let me know and I will update the location.

I located a copy of Eliza Baucom's "History of the Jesse Ford Taylor Plantation and Lotus Villa" documenting what is now Belvidere Park and found your FindAGrave marker for her grave. Thanks a bunch for posting this!
I am in the midst of formatting Eliza's book as a crisp, clean PDF and will be happy to share it with you once it's done.
Thanks for your work in documenting our area's amazingly rich history!

Thanks for you information on correct cemetery location. I have changed Clyde's location to Woodland Baptist Cemetery in Granville County vs the one in Wake County. I also added his wife and son to the new cemetery per Cemetery Census information.

I placed a photo on your memorial of her grave. You might want to check it as it spells her name differently and the birth year is different. Hope this helps! So happy her memorial was done by you. Thanks!

When photographing the marker for Julia Liles, I found another set of markers, TH Liles Sr, Bettie Talton Liles and TH Liles Jr. 1826-1840. I have uploaded the photos for TH Sr and Bettie but there is no memorial page for TH Jr. Do you want me to create one and upload the photo or is this a family member you wish to manage the memorial for?

I discovered a name incorrect on one of your entries and have attached the photo of the marker for your reference. It is correctly linked to his wife which is the photo request I was fulfilling. I always try to document others in the plot whenever I can.
You have listed Lindsey Millard Cooper, it should be Lindsey Millard Phelps (wife was a Cooper prior to their marriage).

Thanks for the transfer. val
|Vicki Bullard||Ella Watts Barbee|
Thanks so much for the info on Ella Barbee. I updated the memorial with the corrections and posted the death cert as the source. I thought I might have made the mistake on the date of death and rechecked the survey and it was as I had posted it. Thanks for bringing it to my attention. Vicki
