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. Just getting back into genealogy now 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.

Current 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
3. family tree joint with daughter

RE: Samuel & Margaret Reid
You are quite welcome Barbara. It is not a very large cemetery but a lot of the older stones are worn to where you cannot read them. I ask my husband if there was any way to clean them so they are readable but he was not aware of anything. If I find out of anything that would help read them I will go back and look again.

Jane McDowell Sampson
You left a flower on Samuel Sampson 40784999 saying he was the husband of your 2nd great aunt.

Do know where Jane is buried or what became of her?
