Bio and Links
Bio Photo We are Matthew and Chrissy Myers. We have been into old stones and cemeteries for years, and got back on the site a while ago. We are working on a project to do Military and Civil War graves in the NC area mostly and love taking road trips and have discovered a few old cemeteries and added them on here. I have been in the military for 15 years now.

PHOTOS - We will do better photos on if the other person that took the pic cant take the time to clean the stone off before taking the pic, Or does not take the whole stone, or it needs a close up to read the info. Also if the pic is discolored.

Most of our family are from PA, and CT.

Family on Matthew's Fathers side are, Myers, Kerner / Karner, Carner, Domer, Grantham, Stroup, Lusher, Mitchell, Van De Kuil, Kuil, Pryer,Turk .

Matthew is a descentant of John Kerner / Carner, who was married to Magdalena. They had a son John Carner JR, who married Susan Stroup. John and Susan had a daughter Susan. Susan Carner married George Domer. George and Susan Domer and a daughter Sarah Belle, who married My Great Grandfather Samual B Myers. Samual and Sarah had a son Ralph Otto Myers, my Grandfather. Ralph Clair Myers married my grandmother Alice Grantham Myers. They had a son Ralph Kriss Myers, who married my mom Mary Louise Evans. ( In my Myers Virtual Cemetery )

Family on my Mothers side are, Evans, Hunter, McNaughton, Monross, Ball. ( In my Evans Virtual Cemetery ) Related to Lucille Ball.

I am happy to transfer grave memorials outside my family to family members, and I welcome corrections and additions. Just use the edit tab to send your request.

I have no problem doing a photo request if someone needs one that is in the Raleigh area or close. Send me a request and Ill try to fill it. I would appreciate a comment on my page after I fill your request. Thank you.

Long Branch Church
Thank you so much for all the work you did at Long Branch Cemetery. My great, great grandmother is Alice Jacobs and her second husband Spencer Howard was given this land from an unknown white man and Long Branch Church was started for all of Spencer Howard and his descendants, my family. Again thank you so much.

I added several more Carner's in the Grandview cemetery in Beaver Falls, Pa, Zoe, Charles L, Charles W, Alma B, & George L. Do you know if any of them are your family or how they should be linked?

Robert Washington:
Hello. I see you created a memorial for Robert J Washington #118810749. He is a 3rd cousin of mine. I sent a Photo request and the volunteer wrote back to me that they could not find the grave as you described (b. 1926, d. 1971
Plot: Sec. 29 South, Vet. Plot, grave 224) They went to the office and there is no record there as well. So consequently we are baffled. He had ties in Buffalo. Could you kindly check on where your sources for his burial are? I would deeply like an answer His Mother Hazel Hahn Washington is Buried in Rochester, but again deep ties to Buffalo in that branch of the tree. I am DEEPLY grateful If you are able to solve the riddle Sincerely Dale Szczech

Odessa Washinton
That won't help. Odessa, as suspected, is female!

I checked where you said he was buried at Holy Selpuchre and did not find the grave. When I returned home, I searched the cemetery's website and they do not have a listing for him. They do have an Odessa Washington who died at age 44 in 1970 and is buried in the same Veteran's section. Is it possible that the name is incorrect? Let me know. I would be glad to return to the cemetery and take a photo of the marker if Odessa is the person.
