RE: 108431431
Ralph, thanks for prompt reply. I am 75 and would forget my own name if I didn't write it down.

What is your source for this data since there are no photos? I am searching James Green and wife.

Thank you
Thank you so much for the work you you have for "Find a Grave Memorial" for the Virgie Mae Cemetery on Harkers Island. This helps so much for genealogy research.

Henry and Rita Zucha
Hello, I was curious if you had any information or access to obituaries on Henry and Rita Zucha who you've created memorials for. They would have been my grandfathers step siblings, who I have no information for, I'm searching for any family they might have in North Carolina, I have old family photos I would like to send them. They had a son Richard who is also burried in that cemetery but can't find a trace for their other son Tony or if they ever married.

Edwin T. Piner
HI, Ralph! Could you provide me with more information regarding the ship that Edwin T. Piner was lost from - the Marjorie McAllister in 1894? I am currently researching the North Carolina Piner Family Tree. I have Edwin T. birth and death date, his marriage and his one child's name. Would like to learn more about the ship and why he was on it. Was he a Merchant Marine? Thanks so much for any help you may be able to provide!
