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.

Current 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
3. family tree joint with daughter

Hi, I am messaging regarding the transfer of a couple of pages. The pages are James Alex Slone (#108551764) and Flory Harrison Slone (#108551724). These are my great-grandparents and I am looking to get them as well of their children linked together so their grandchildren and great-grandchildren can learn more about their ancestors.

All the best,
Wayne DeLong

Easter Thank You 04 03 2015

In the event that I have not thanked you, personally, for the transfers that you have provided me with, I wish to do so at this time.

My retirement from all my social and family duties have dwindled down since my health has had the opportunity to allow me to beat my God given expiration date, with the help of family, fantastic physicians and hospital, and the implantation of a pacemaker. Rest is my priority when not doing some physical duties, yet Find A Grave and family ancestry tracing is still fun. To all my Find a Grave friends, you have all been a tremendous help with your contributions to me and especially to this site.

Happy Easter, be safe, have fun and Thank You.

Picture request - There is a Cornelius family marker in the plot for Elitha Cornelius Find A Grave Memorial# 50537534. Would you mind adding the family marker to the two infants that are buried in the same plot, they must be unmarked as you took all the other family members pics. The infants are Find A Grave Memorial# 50537542 and Find A Grave Memorial# 50537543. Thanks!!

RE: Samuel & Margaret Reid
You are quite welcome Barbara. It is not a very large cemetery but a lot of the older stones are worn to where you cannot read them. I ask my husband if there was any way to clean them so they are readable but he was not aware of anything. If I find out of anything that would help read them I will go back and look again.
