Bio and Links
Bio Photo Looking at family history in Johntson, Bladen and Robenson counties in North Carolina for the Munn's Ryals, and Burney's. My wife's family is from the Chicago area: the Schoditsch, Buenzow, Petznick Ulrich, and Knauf.

If you find any mistakes in my entries,
email me and I will correct it. I would like to thank all who have added links, bios or photos, your kindness is appreciated. If you find a memorial I have added and would like to have it removed from Findagrave, please ask, and I will remove it. I don't have any intention to offend or upset anyone, just love to help and Findagrave is such a wonderful resource for honoring ones who have passed and for helping ones to connect to their family history.
I'm not related to most of my enteries, the information I add to each memorial is all I have.

We are related through Charles Iver... Have you been to Brown Marsh Cemetery?. We have at least 3 generations there.... McCollum's as well as Burney's. I am having a hard time finding info.
Do you have anything on these lines?
We are headed to NC this fall, do you have any recommendations in Bladed to look for information?
I've been the Archives in Raliegh, but we won't be going that way this time.

Thanks for the photo of Lucy Langhorne Ficklin's grave from Spring Hill Cemetery, as well as others so many others that you have done. If this is a cemetery where you often go, would you keep an eye out for any Garner family graves? I can't locate where they are buried, but they lived and died in Lynchburg, Margaret in 1988 and Lewis in 1995.

Thanks for adding my relatives to Find A Grave. I had plans to do it but had not gotten around to it. I have other photos of him & Mary (Bea) to add also. I currently live in their last home in Lynchburg.
