Bio and Links
Bio Photo Native of North Carolina.
I became interested in family history in May 2010 when my mother's sister passed away. All three sisters had passed within three years! It made me realize that the older generation was leaving and if I wanted to know more about our family, I better start asking questions! I got very interested in family history and discovered that I really enjoy visiting eastern NC cemeteries, taking pictures of headstones, and figuring out who the people were and if/how they were related to me. I focus on Martin County (my dad's family) and Wilson County (my mom's family).

I am a member of the DAR. John Jackson Morgan Sr of Nash County, NC is the first Revolutionary War patriot I have been able to prove my connection to.

This hobby (obsession?) has been a real blessing in many ways. The best part is meeting relatives I never knew I had, and becoming friends with some of the most wonderful people I've ever known.

When contacting me about a memorial or photo I have added, PLEASE INCLUDE THE MEMORIAL NUMBER.

G. Frank Lamm #140902602
Hi Deborah,
Thank you so much for all the work you have done to preserve everyone's history. Just amazing.
Do you know the source of the information for
G.Frank Lamm's father,listed in your write-up as Ben Briggs? Do you know if this is the same Ben Briggs as Captain Benjamin Franklin Briggs, Memorial 102369504, which you also did.
I am curious because a George Franklin Lamm who was born & died on these dates in Wilson, NC (according to a relative (now deceased)(but I don't know where she obtained these dates in the 1970s) was the father of her mother, Annie Louise Lamm. Hence, if this G. Frank Lamm is indeed the husband of Ida Brownley (misspelled or mistranscribed as Brannby b/c other info matches known info, i.e. date & man's name where wedding held (C.D.Brannby - which should read C.D. Brownley for Charles David Brownley.) in the marriage records)(Note:Ida Brownley supposedly obtained an annulment, which I have to find out how to track down), I am most interested in who G. Frank Lamm's father is, especially given it appears that the husband (Rufus Lamb) of G. Frank Lamm's mother had died in the Civil War many years prior to his birth and no marriage license shows up for her marrying another Lamb or Lamm. Hence, I had figured out that G. Frank Lamm could not be the son of Rufus Lamb, but until I saw this posting I could not find any leads as to who his dad might be. Also,according to my relative,George Franklin Lamm did have other children by another wife afterwards (such a marriage shows up in the record of marriage licenses).
Again,many, many thanks.
By the way, are you related?
Best regards!

RE: Bryant Rice
Thanks Deborah. I am actively looking for Zephlinda's burial site. I know a number of family graves were moved from a road construction site in Nash County over to Maplewood in Wilson, but don't believe she was part of that group. I wish my mother were still living as she might have known.

j.M. (Mack) Daniel
James Mack Daniel was my grandfather.

His birth records listed him as James Mack.. not James Marshall, although his son's (my father's) name being James Marshall Daniel, Jr. would imply the James Marshall name.

Dad's extensive family records are in the Genealogical collection at the Wilaon County Public Library.

Also, per Dad's records and personal recollection, his grandmother (Harris Daniel's wife) was named "Morning", not "Mourning."

Thank you so much Deborah! My applicant will be very pleased!

Other Winstead Relatives
It looks like you have several photos that I'd like to use for the DAR application. The absence of vital records for some of these folks is daunting and these stones are all I have for birth dates. May I have your permission to use them for the DAR application?
