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
3. family tree joint with daughter

Would you happened to know in what section this couple was buried in? I have family at this cemetery and I may take a trip there. I could maybe try to find them.

RE: Reid photos
Mrs. Rose Reid was my friend. I finished Erskine in 1970 and she and I sometimes went to Due West or came back together several times. She would go over to see F Ellis or R B Simpson. I drove her car once coming back from Due west and I drove through or around Ware Shoals. She told me that she had been going to Due West all her life but she had never been that way. The trip was 10 minutes shorter and that pleased her. The Burns family is descended John Simpson. Almost every one in our area is descended from him in some way. My daughter married one of Harper Gaston Simpson's grandsons. They have two children and they are being raised in Rock Hill ARP. Thanks for your help G agee.
