Laughlin Fannin #51569049
I have found enough records in VA, NC, and GA plus the NC State Archives to determine that Laughlin may be related to Middleton Fannin, but they are NOT father and son.

This is based on the fact that Middleton never lived in Mecklenburg Co. VA and Laughlin never lived in Caswell Co. NC. The only place that they both lived in was GA. However, I have discovered a RW soldier named Hezekiah Fannin who lived in Caswell Co. and moved to GA whom I now believe is the true father of Middleton.

Also, I seriously doubt that Middleton ever served in the RW being born in 1765. He was only 10 when the RW began.

If you have any questions, please write directly to

RE: Manuel and Cruz Couturier
hi! wish I could've been more successful, but my guess is that his grave IS the one near Cruz's that is unmarked. I will be adding those pictures this evening on her page. Thanks!

James Edwin Patterson memorial
Thank you for the transfer. I have the DC for James Monroe, my great great grandfather. My Pattersons came from Pike County, Alabama in the 1880's. Most of them are buried in Woodside Cemetery. Thanks again!

Thanks for the Death Certificate Info
Hi Michelle,

I understand that some folks, with good reason, might not want death certificate information posted. But I wanted to thank you for posting the certificate for Francis M. Gage I with helping my Mom do some exploration of family history and I found this info you posted along the way of research. The information it contains is gold for us!

Lucy Patterson
I am related to Lucy. Her mother, Cora Price, was my great-aunt, sister of my grandfather. Lucy's story is a tragic one and I'm wondering how Lucy came to be in Hebbronville. If you have any information would you share? Is her grave marked with a stone? Hope to hear from you, Penny

Memorial # 6624747
Please remove the death certificate you placed on my great uncles memorial. ALL the info is already on the memorial, we do not need the d/c. I do not want the word "insanity" on a tribute memorial. Thank you
