Bio and Links
Bio Photo "We Are The Story Tellers We are the chosen. My feelings are, in each family, there is one who seems called to find the ancestors. To put flesh on their bones and make them live again, to tell the family story and to feel that somehow they know and approve. To me, doing genealogy is not a cold gathering of facts but, instead, breathing life into all those who have gone before. We are the storytellers of the tribe. All tribes have one. We have been called, as it were, by our genes. Those who have gone before cry out to us: Tell our story."
~ - Original Author - Della M. Cummins Wright

If you find any errors, let me know. If you have bio or notes to add to my listing, I'll review them and add them as appropriate, I do need documentation of dates or other information before I will list it. I may add the info and use your contributor name as the source.

PLEASE REQUEST TRANSFERS.... Unless related to me, I will transfer management. If you are family or have another good reason, just tell me your relationship or reason. Most transfers will be granted, my transfer rules are more lax than guidelines.

Re: Dows family buried at Cedar Hill
Originally they (Wm & Eleanor Dows) were buried at Christ Church Durham Parish in Nanjamoy (which was near RoseMary Lawn). Their son Frank Dows had them moved up to Cedar Hill Cemetary.

Uncle Frank was my grandfather's uncle. My grandfather was Roderick Dows Watson Sr.

I had never seen that photo of William Dows before but I have a few others of him. Thanks.

Hi Grace,

This is the correct cemetery for George Montgomery Dennis, I found him listed in the Davie County Historical and Genealogical Society cemetery survey, although his last name is spelled Dennise on the survey. His wife was Betty A Graham Dennis, #126128178, also buried here

Thank you for the parent links for Oakey Schuchert. I found a death announcement for Oakey and just posted it. I also found his father's obit, which I sent to the memorial manager. Let me know if you'd like a copy, maybe you already have it. Thanks again!

RE: Damaris Sayres Reeves
No problem with sponsoring. I'm proud to do it for direct ancestors. Are you also related to Damaris or are you just one of those wonderful people who walk thru cemeteries and find those long lost graves and give us wonderful information?

Hope added information helps
Mr. Deane moved to Sequim in 1979 from Sullivan's Island, S.C. Gather after 2nd wife died he moved to Sequim to be near Daughter
He had been a resident of New York from 1907 until 1953; He was an electrician for Consilidated Edison of New York. Makes me think he married Marie J. Brown in New York. Would also beleive that daughter Marie "Betty" Maasch was born in New York also
You'll need to check the earlier census
Don't know why he moved to South Carolina
Maybe he married Anita Corkie in New York and moved to South Carolina her home state
