Bio and Links
Bio Photo My sister Ann Manley Reid Hamlin and I started searching for our ancestors in 1978 before all the automation took place. We enjoyed visiting the court houses and cemeteries where our relatives live. Got back into genealogy in 2012 to document what we found and get new information. We are descendants of Samuel Watson Reid (1831-1902) g-grandfather of the Steele Creek area of Charlotte and Manley's of Carnesville, GA.

Past genealogy projects:
1. Volunteer indexer for the 1940 Federal Census
2.Photo Documenting (with the help of my husband) tombstones in Mooresville, Iredell county, NC and listing on
-- Glenwood Memorial Cemetery Mooresville
-- Willow Valley Cemetery Mooresville
-- Green Acres Mooresville
-- Berea Baptist Church Mooresville
-- Rocky Mount United Methodist
-- Fair View United Methodist Church Mt Mourne
-- Iredell Memorial Gardens Statesville

John Bustle
I cannot tell you how very grateful I am to have the photo of the headstone for John Bustle. The Bustle family has been a little bit of a roadblock for me in my family search, so I am thrilled to have anything related to them. You are so kind to contribute so much. Thank you!

Thank you so much for these photos. As an active volunteer here myself, I know how much effort goes into fulfilling a photo request. I meant to thank you earlier but I was actually in NC myself working a cemetery in High Point when you took these photos. Thanks again! Larry Eldreth

Robert Reid, Mulberry Presbyterian
Barbara, I recently visited the Mulberry Presbyterian Cemetery in Charlotte, NC, and attempted to locate the grave of Mr. Robert Reid. I was unsuccessful. However, I did take photos of all the other Reid family members I could find. I always try to also take group photos of family members who were buried together. Please visit the cemetery to see the pictures I added. I hope some of these are helpful. Larry

Thanks for letting me know that you are not able to find their grave markers. A family member insists they are there and she will provide a picture but she hasn't come up with one yet either! I keep the photo request open in case she ever does and I will receive a notification when she does....
