Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born & raised in the Smokie Mountains & foot hills of the Appalachian Mountains of North Carolina & South Carolina.
I'm one of the Original Participants @ the FosterFTDNA project with tested DNA markers up to 67.
I use Find A Grave as a research tool to connect family members of Families related to my Foster Surname and related Surnames. Foster , Minnick, Markland, Davis, Combs, Markland, Myers, Rumbley Zimmerman, Orrell, Tucker . Also the surnames from my mothers side of the Family Braswell, Ratcliff / Ratliff, Henson / Hinson, Diggs / Degge, Myers, Pistol / Travis, Boyette / Boyet,Keen, others . My wifes family surnames Rice , Franklin, Wallin, Shelton, Tweed, Sevier , Chandler and others.
I believe in linking family members with the tools given to us in the Edit Tab Section. Many of my memorials are created by finding the burial Locations listed on Death Certificates.

Yes, Lester & Esther were twins. I appreciate you letting me know that I did not put that in the bio.

Thank You

Jernigan & Chandler roots
I believe I have Jernigan roots in Anson, Richmond counties in NC and then to Sevier Co, TN and then to Marshall Co, AL with some of the family going to Franklin Co, TN. I also believe my Chandler connection may be from Wilkes Co, NC to Sevier Co, TN then to St. Clair, Marshall and Etowah Co's in AL. Both families may have connections to the Bishop family. I took a trip to Guntersville, AL but didn't find any smoking gun there. Wonder if we may have roots in common. Feel free to contact me through the Chandler Family Association. I'm the Deputy Chairman of the CFA Genealogy Panel.

Laverne McNeely Foster (138184089)
I already have Laverne linked to her father, Jonas Amzi McNeely. I can't find her mother's, Estelle, burial location. Her obituary lists both parents names. I also don't understand what you are wanting me to do. Please advise.

RE: Upper Laurel Baptist Church Cemetery
Upper Laurel Baptist Church at 9940 US 23 Hwy, Mars Hill, NC
There are two ways you can go.
1.take I-26 toward Mars Hill take exit 9 turn right at yield sign then almost immediately take left on to the old HWY 1923. Continue on that hwy about 15 minutes until you see Upper Laurel Baptist church on the right. Cemeteries in front and back
2. I-26 to Wolf Laurel exit.turn right , continue on HWY 1923 to Upper Laurel on the left. est.20 minutes

The matter of correct location of burial site has surfaced again (POCAHONTUS FOSTER STONE w/o D B). Hopefully, you will recall our previous venture down that path of investigation.

As I invested considerable time in this beloved family, I would appreciate your adding the family photo to the correct memorial 117708403 located
and photographed by yours truly at Pleasant Grove, Hydro, Smiths Grove, Warren County, Ky.

Your professionalism is always appreciated.

Foster Cemetery, Mocksville, NC
I went down Cornatzer Road, Mocksville, NC to get the photos for you but could not find a family cemetery. You might want to see who lives in the houses next to the 1058 Cornatzer address and ask them personally if they know where the gravestones are located. It looks like it's someones personal home there. If they cannot photograph for you and would permit me to go over, I would be happy to do all the gravestones that are there. You can PM me at,-mocksville,-nc_rb/#/homedetails/1058-Cornatzer-Rd-Mocksville-NC-27028/68709722_zpid/
