Bio and Links
Bio Photo My sister Ann Manley Reid Hamlin and I started searching for our ancestors in 1978 before all the automation took place. We enjoyed visiting the court houses and cemeteries where our relatives live. Just getting back into genealogy now in 2012 to document what we found and get new information. We are descendants of Samuel Watson Reid (1831-1902) g-grandfather of the Steele Creek area of Charlotte and Manley's of Carnesville, GA.

Past genealogy projects:
1. Volunteer indexer for the 1940 Federal Census
2.Photo Documenting (with the help of my husband) tombstones in Mooresville, Iredell county, NC and listing on
-- Glenwood Memorial Cemetery Mooresville
-- Willow Valley Cemetery Mooresville
-- Green Acres Mooresville
-- Berea Baptist Church Mooresville
-- Rocky Mount United Methodist
-- Fair View United Methodist Church Mt Mourne
-- Iredell Memorial Gardens Statesville

Ray O Harrison
Thank you. I'll see what I can find this weekend. I notice there is a stone which says Harrison and Haynes? Is that the plot marker? May help to know if Haynes may be a relation.

RE: Ray Opha Harrison requests
Hello. Thanks for your message. I also sent an additional "suggested change" hoping to explain further. I guess you didn't get it? This is not the son of Obediah and Dora Harrison. The gentleman has the same name and dates, but as you can see by the memorial I created - 157431810 with obit, this is not him. The Ray Opha Harrison I am related to never lived in NC. He is buried in WV. If you like, I can do some more research and try to determine who the NC gentleman is?

Just a note to let you know I have added cemetery info and an obit to The pages of Mary Lois and her husband, James Robert Millen, in Mount Hope Cemetery, Topeka, Kansas. Hope there's some information there you can use.
