John and Elizabeth Barry Burial Place
Good morning! I am compiling family trees for my ancestors and I was wondering if you had details regarding John and Elizabeth Barry's burial place. Were their bodies moved from the original burial place of Barry Springs Stockade? There is conflicting information stating that they are buried in the Liberty Hill Presbyterian Churchyard, on the metal plaque on the original headstone as well as on Find a Grave website. Any insight? Thanks!

DAR research
Vonnie,
Thank you for your many hours of dedication to a worthy cause, remembering those who served our great nation. I am working on my application to the DAR and discovered my Patriot Jesse Henson Sr is buried at Soldier Creek Cemetery. He is my 6th great grandfather and my great grandparents Mildred and George Bohannon are also buried there. I need documentation and lineage info of birth, marriage and death of this line. Any reference material you know of would be a great help to me in the finalization of my application.
Thank you again for all your work.

RE: Allen Sarrett #126253630
I could feel how upset you are through the written words...I am sorry this has happened to you and so many descendants of our American Patriots..Its too bad that Find A Grave doesn't recognize that in the past people were often buried on their own property, often with a wooden marker or cross. Wood does not survive and therefore, there may not be any record or location of the burial site..I am so glad that our relatives may not only have come into contact with each other but may have been friends during the battle of Kings Mountain !! What hurts me about removing some of the names of our patriots is that Find A Grave has diminished their sacrifices to the generations of today...SO SAD

RE: Allen Sarrett #126253630
Vonnie, does this mean our relatives who served in the Revolution are no longer significant?? I am not very good at the computer so how can I get a memorial back for Allen ?? Do you have to redo all the work that you poured into this project once more?? I am floored that your work as a contributor and my managing and sponsoring this memorial is so easily dismissed ! These veterans are valid...I am surprised that I was not notified of this deletion..I have many questions and I am sorry if I am bothering you but how do they come to such a decision.?? I sent an email to Find A Grave but as yet there has been no answer..knowing how angry I am, I can imagine that you are livid !! I'm so sorry this happened to you dear friend.

Allen Sarrett #126253630

Hi Vonnie, I cannot seem to find out what has happened to my ancestor Allen Sarrett, who was a participant at Kings Mtn. You transferred his memorial to me about 1/1/2 years ago. I tried to reach his memorial at Christmas but was unable to do so. Recently I tried with the Mem.# but I get a message that this memorial has been "merged" with another memorial..Do you know why this memorial has disappeared ??? I can't get him by name of by number...

HAPPY NEW YEAR

Vonnie, don't give up. Just let it rest awhile while you recoup. My personality has always been to tackle a job or situation immediately , no matter how daunting. But i find as i get older and the job is overwhelming,my brain tends to shut down. So i have learned to wait. Not easy but the best ideas present themselves out of the silence. Merry Christmas ,Diane

RE: John Ingram
I hope you find an worthy repository for your information. It sounds like you have worked hard and have such a passion for what you do.

I do have a question about the information you have on John Ingram. I noticed you have information on his parents. Could you tell me where you got this information? I have been trying to located documentation proving who his parents are. I was wondering if you have birth records or other documents proving who his parents are. Any information you could provide would be most appreciated.

Kind Regards,

Christine Cochran

RE: Find A Grave Memorial# 142718048
Vonnie, that is horrible.I have always thought of Find A Grave as a memorial site.That is why there are literally thousands of family memorials on this site that do not have a gravesite,including some of my family. Are they then going to delete those since they follow under the same rule ? You can not single out some while allowing others. I am so sorry that all your hard dedication was wiped out by this.You did a lot of work,and also my family links are gone. Your friend ,Diane
