Mountain Hill Baptist Church Cemetery
Do you know if there is a headstone for Cecil Genell Loftis in this cemetery. This is my mom's sister that died about age 10. Thank you. Barbara Loftis Martin.

Capt Edwin INGRAM 1843 obit
Thank you for posting the obituary: I tried to transcribe it; but, still struggling with some words.

12 [Jun? 1843], died:
A Man? of the Revolution.
Died in Montgomery county, NC, on the 12th indstant, in the 93d yr of his age,
Capt Edwin INGRAM,
a soldier of the Revolution.
Few persons lived more beloved or died more lamented than the subject of this notice.
Devoted to all the duties of life
--a ideal husband, and affectionate father, a benevolent neighbor
--love of country was his ruling passion;
and next to the ferver of that piety that glowed in his heart was the order of that patriotism which constantly burnt in his bosom.
His service to his country during the Revolution were of the most efficient character.
At an early period of the struggle, he voluntarily left a home blessed with every comfort that heart could desire, and, tearing himself from the c...of the most um...and accomplished companion, went forth the brave the hardships of "the tented field."
At first he enlisted as a common soldier, but soon rose to the rank of Captain, which he filled with distinguished ability.
He was in the regular army but a short time, for the action of country in which he resided was constantly filled with Tories, and to their subjugation his forts? were contherd? Many were the families in the western part of the State who regarded him as the vigilant protector of their property, and the guardian angle of the firesides.
He served under Gen. MARION, and was on his way with him to join GATES when they heard of that officer's defeat at Camden.
Kind in all the relations of life, neither the losanguiscal? field of mortal strife nor the savage cruelties of Tory warfare could chill the sympathies of his nature? or contract the benovolence of his heart.
After the eulobrated Flora McDONALD had been plundered of her property in the neighborhood of Fayetteville, she removed to Mountain Creek in Richmond county. The subject of this notice gave her such aid as was in his power, furnished her with a horse, and naibied? her to Charleston; whence she departed for Scotland.
For sousn thau abuact men to be war, she vrestoern part of the State was infusted with a clae of peruns, who setting the civil authorities at defiance, plundered the wixah and unprotected with impunity; nor, indeed, were the possessions of the most powerful at all secure against the malnudations of their daring villaicy. To the extermination of these lawless depredatros etc, INGRAM devoted several years of his life, as well as the greater part of his property.
For his services the Legislature voted him a gratuity of five hundred pounds, which, on accounty of the embarrassed condition of the State, he refused to accept.
His life was a continued secxe? of patriotic exertion for his county, and active benevolence for his fellow men.

Kelly, did I answer your question about Nimrod Mitchell? I was looking through my public messages and I am not sure. If I did not, please feel free to ask again.

Thank You
Thanks for bringing to my attention that John Woodall's headstone lists his military unit. I have added the information to his bio.

RE: Richard Lanford
Could it be that the one in AL is the first wife and the one in SC the second?

I am trying to obtain a photograph of the tombstone of John Edward Gaze from the Tryon Cemetery. He died on March 17, 1937 in Tryon, Polk County, North Carolina. I am also interested in contacting descendants of John E. Gaze concerning the Bostian Bridge train wreck of 1891. Joel Reese,
