Bio and Links
Bio Photo New editing function is available from FAG, so check the 'Edits' tab (upper right on your profile page). You can accept or decline recommendations from other FAG members (generally to update your burials e.g., place of birth/death, full name or nickname, etc). Also, take the extra time (for you and others) to look up the place of birth & death (& month & day) if they are on-line. This link is very good for general information -

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE - if you take photos of graves which are partly covered by grass or dirt, take a few minutes and uncover the grave for a clear photo of the details. If it was your ancestors, wouldn't you want the same courtesy?

Maternal ancestors were PATTERSON and WHITAKER from Surry County, NC and I serve as a volunteer with the Surry County Genealogical Association to locate and document cemeteries as well as burials. Other family lines include CRISSMAN, RING, LOGAN, EVANS, MAINARD, FULK, REDMAN, and HAYMORE.

Earliest known paternal ancestors are in Chatham Co, GA - Benjamin Carter (b. abt 1828, d. 1862) & Mary Tillman (b. abt 1837 & d. aft 1870). Other lines include WELLS, GROOVER (GRUBER), MOBLEY, PRICE, and ROBINSON.

If I have burials that are more connected to you, will be glad to transfer them and would appreciate the same.

Mrs Cameron
Dear Bob
I went to cem,and could not find a Telitha anywhere.I thought maybe other side of stone had different name.I found H.D. Cameron buried beside her and added him and photoed the plot.I am going to send a sac to Bible.Also discovered Mrs H.D. Cameron's stone picture is posted on Betty Cameron's memorial ,same cem,but dates are off.Popular stone it would seem.Take care

Mrs Cameron
Dear Bob
I will have to visit the cem.and see if I can find the name Telitha McLeod Cameron listed anywhere on gravestone.If I can document that Mrs.Cameron and Telitha are same person,I will delete mine.I can only go on what is on the stone,and if Mrs Cameron wanted her stone to read as such it's not my place to make a memorial that doesn't match the stone.I am still confused how P.Bible made a memorial that didn't reflect the grave stones info.He has listed many memorials and taken many pics and he does good work.It does not make sense.Are you related to Mrs Cameron?Do you have any info that could validate that Telitha is Mrs H Cameron.I want to get it right.Any info you may have is appreciated.
Thanks Again

Samuel W. Whitaker
Hello: I checked the birth certificates of the children of Samuel W. Whitaker. Jessie Bryant is the mother of Judy and Larry and Christine Coley is the mother of Regina. I have added that information. I'm looking for graves of Samuel W. Whitaker born about 1874 and wife Emma Draughn born about 1873. I think he died about 1895. Thanks, Lois

The other people buried under the same stone don't match up. Also, have you had any dealings with cehb?

RE: Isaacks names
The cemetery I'm referring to is the Samuel Isaacks Cemetery off of Union Hill Rd. There is a partial survey of it on The people listed as being buried in the Ray-Isaacks Family Cemetery on find a grave are not buried in the same cemetery as Samuel and Nancy Snow Isaacks, with the exception of Ashby (as best I know).

RE: Cemeteries and Photos
Well, I hope someone involved in church activities is reading this, because it does not have to be expensive maintaining a cemetery. Child labor is free (joking here!). If they made it a potluck dinner or ice cream social, I think most younger children would show up and put in an hour or so of uncovering 'lost' headstones. Social activity for the adults and supervision for the children, and a lot of good work could get done.

Cemeteries and Photos
Hi Bob, thank you for your kind words. I enjoy taking photos of entire cemeteries and am less into the research.....mostly because most of the folks buried in the cemeteries are no relation to me at all. But I like posting them for others, and I appreciate people like you who do the research. :)
A comment on your note about taking pictures of partially covered up headstones. I have a bad knee and a bad back. If a stone is on the ground and covered with weeds, I usually am not physically able to clean it off. I do the ones I can and take pictures of all that are even slightly readable. That's the best I can do. I'm sorry if someone is unhappy that the picture is not perfectly clear. Maybe they can get a caretaker to go clean them up. Since most cemeteries are Church cemeteries in NC, I often wonder why they don't get their youth groups out at least once a year for cemetery clean up. It would sure look nicer and teach them some work ethics and respect for the deceased.

Opal Maynard 99281184
Hello Bob,
I received a suggestion from you on January 24, 2014 concerning this duplicate memorial for Opal Maynard. Sorry for my late response, but I have been quite busy. I am not in the business of stealing or intentionally duplicating other people's memorials, but I do like them to be correct, so I will delete mine soon. I sent the following correction request to the manager of the other memorial and I am awaiting her reply.
"Opal Maynard's grave is actually located in Maple Hill Cemetery, which is located adjacent to Dock's Creek Cemetery. Many people , including funeral homes, often confuse them because one needs to drive through Dock's Creek Cemetery Road to access Maple Hill Cemetery and they are both managed by the same person. I recently learned that I had created a duplicate memorial for Opal when I surveyed Maple Hill Cemetery. I will delete my memorial, if you want to move yours to Maple Hill. My memorial # is 99281184. There is a gravestone picture posted on it. You may contact me with information as to whether you've decided to move your memorial so I will know to delete mine. :-) Thank you very much ("
I have done the same thing for her husband, E.J.s memorial that I also had unknowingly duplicated. Thank you very much for your diligence to keep memorials correct.

Alma Ashburn
Hi Bob - I got your history on Alma and her parents. You've done a spectacular job tracking the family. I'm going to transfer Alma to you so you can add or change whatever you decide is best for this memorial.

Dorothy Hensley Antioch Cemetery
The problem here is that the Antioch church has two graveyards one on the hill above it and one behind it. The one the hill was filled up, so someone donated some land besdie the church and new graveyard was started, whoe ever created that graveyard shouldn't have, all the graves in it have been duplicated as far as I can tell.
