Bio and Links
Bio Photo Galesville MD was my hometown, I went from attending the same school my father went to, serving in the Navy as Hospital Corpman in Viet Nam, graduated from Anne Arundel Community College and the University Maryland and then left Maryland to pursue my livelihood as a Audiovisual Coordinator at Craven Community College in New Bern, NC
I am now retired and spend a lot of time researching on Ancestry.com and at the public library. I have now more that 40000 images of cemeteries. I am now using mapper.acme.com to located less know cemeteries displayed on topo maps and get correct long and lat. for cemeteries. Another site is itouchmap.com/latlong.html as it works both ways.

I like to follow-up when I find someone is looking for a particular person if I have some information that I have found from Ancestry or other sources. Sometimes I need help as the cemetery description lack location details so I like checking with the person who listed the memorial.

Someone asked who is paying for the gas, the purpose of this service is we do it for the enjoyment and gaining knowledge of our community. So also is this free service to keep our bodies and minds working and active.

RE: Suggestion
Thanks John for editing the memorial of Charles B Cox who is buried in the Roach Cemetery. My records indicate the the parents, Sylvester Cox and Catherine Roach, were married on Jan 15, 1857 in Craven County.
Sylvester Cox was the son of William Cox and Louisa Stokes Cox, born about 1830. Catherine was the daughter of Jimmie Roach and Sallie Adams Roach, born Aug 13, 1838 in Craven, NC; both who are buried in same Roach cemetery as Charles B Cox.

RE: Chapman-Dudley Cemetery
I always wanted to stop and walk out to the cemetery. I knew that my husbands ancestors were buried somewhere in that area in a family cemetery and have found many in the church cemetery. Just have never been over to walk out during non planting season for the farmer. Drove by there yesterday and the cemetery is very over grown. I'm sure it would take a couple of days or many hands to get it all cleared. Do you know how to locate the farmer who owns the land? I wouldn't want go with out permission.

Thank you for the pictures of the family cemetery. I believe it was hiding in plain site of my searches! Is this located right on Hwy 43 just before the Chapman Church? Either way, thank you for very much for taking the time you do to assist locating histories of families.

Hi John, seen your work here on this cemetery and I am working on the Pike family tree. Was wondering if you could transfer management on memorial # 90057536 William Pike to me. Thank you in advance for your assistance.

Sincerely,
Terri
