|Bio and Links|
Most of my work is from "mowing the rows" in our local cemeteries or in those that are special to me when I get a chance to visit. I try to be very thorough in what I do post to this site. My favorite part |
of contributing to Find A Grave is walking the cemeteries and taking photos. ACCURATE cemetery documentation is very important, and this is why I do what I do.
I love to research and link families, and add biographical information - please use the Edit tab and send me any information you would like to have added, and I will add based on the rules for bios set in the Find A Grave FAQ's. I transfer only within the four-generation Find-A-Grave guidelines.
PLEASE carefully check the cemetery in which you want to list a memorial (it doesn't hurt to quickly check the county too) BEFORE you list it, as one may already exist for that person. Duplicate memorials for the same person, ("Dupes"), whether accidental or intentional, are not allowed by F-A-G. Duplicates erode the quality of this site and are problematic for many reasons. I will send you a friendly SAC if I see one.
It is very sad that quite a few contributors continue to misuse this site and post entries as permanent BURIAL UNKNOWN, both recent deaths and those 100 years ago or more.
This is Find A GRAVE, not a memorial site for generations of folks who have passed on and we do not know where they are buried, or for certain what happened to their remains.
I do not add entries for those with unknown dispositions (Burial Unknown) to Find A Grave.
I also will not link my managed memorials to those without proper dispositions. Please do not link any BURIAL UNKNOWN entries to the memorials I manage; I will request the links to be removed if I become aware they have been linked.
PLEASE realize this is a GRAVES REGISTRATION SITE, not a place for you to build your family tree :) If you do not know where the person was buried, or the final disposition of the remains, you should not be listing the person on FIND A GRAVE.
The most recent FAQ's regarding the purpose of this site:
What is Find A Grave?
Find a Grave's mission is to find, record
and present final disposition information from around the world as a virtual cemetery experience.
Memorial contributions to Find A Grave should fulfill that mission - registration
of the final disposition. If the memorial contribution corresponds with only the
main mission,then the memorial fulfills its purpose as part of Find A Grave's mission.
Find a Grave memorials may contain rich content including pictures, biographies and more specific information. Members can
leave remembrances via ‘virtual flowers' on the memorials they visit, completing the virtual cemetery experience.
Find A Grave is a resource for anyone in finding the final disposition of family,
friends, and ‘famous' individuals.
Find A Grave is definitely a genealogical RESOURCE, but not a genealogical SITE..... There's a difference :)

|Lorraine Lambert||Allen Buckner|
Hi Cuz, Thanks for the information. Have linked Allen to his parents. Hope all is well with you. Have a Blessed Day.
|pdixon74||RE: Buckner Family Line|
Thank you, I need lots of help with Buckner family line.
I thought I had found the correct line but it was a mix up with the names. ( Ponder-Ramsey-Buckner)
Nancy Delitha Ponder Buckner (76729587). Her husband is listed as Allen Buckner.This can not be the correct Nancy.
1900 census Madison County N.C.-
Allen Buckner (70) born 10-1829
Nancy Buckner (61) born 4-1839
John Buckner (14) born 2-1883 grandson ?
I believe this is the Buckners that I am looking for. Time for me to slow down and wait for much needed help.

|pdixon74||Buckner Family Line|
Hi, I am trying to find the children of Thomas Ramsey (113522771) and Elizabeth Ponder Ramsey (60222385). I would like to have the parents and the correct children linked together. This is about their daughter Nancy Ramsey Buckner.
Nancy was born about 1838 in Madison County North Carolina.
1st marriage was to Jake Buckner. They had one son, William Nelson Buckner(1858 to 1884).
2nd marriage to Allen Buckner, born about 1827 died about 1930.
This information is from the Madison County Genealogical Society in Madison County North Carolina.
I can not find any other information about this Buckner family. I would like to find out their history.
If Nancy can not be linked ( no grave ) to her parents its ok. I still want to find her family.
What is the correct Buckner line?

Hey Karyn, I am the great grandson of Sylvester Morris Orr, he is in West View Cemetery. I would like to link his father and mother to his page. If you could allow me to do that it would be great. Thanks :)

The website links you sent were very interesting. Nice way of recording them. I think the Lord will bless you for all your efforts!
I found the No.l 2 worst-case scenario memorial at Connestee. It is for about 200 of them!
Here's a typical BIO SECTION that I put in for the unknown decedants:
CIRCUMSTANCES OF GRAVE MARKER: This gravestone appears to be a "field rock," that has no inscription.
POSSIBLE RELATIVES IN FAMILY PLOT: The Zachary family has numerous gravestones nearby in this section of the cemetery, and the field stones are in the row behind the Paxton family.
LOCATION OF GRAVESITE: There are a group of unidentified field rocks in an area on the right side of the cemetery, perhaps 2-3 rows from the woods. They are basically in two rows. One of the photos attached depicts the large number of field stones. There are no other groupings of field stones in any other part of the cemetery.
IF YOU HAVE ADDITIONAL INFORMATION TO SHARE, PLEASE CLICK ON "EDIT" TAB, ABOVE.
Here's verbiage from the flowers I put at the bottom of my Unknowns:
Rest in Heavenly peace. The Lord knows who you are, and has you in the palm of His hand. Our sympathy to this family. May the Lord bless those you left behind, and heal their broken hearts.
That flower says it all!
CHEERS & thanks for all you do for Find A Grave!
|PATTY McFERREN-BLANTON & J.R. BLANTON||Unknown Decedants|
Hi! again. Thanks for your message back.
The worst cemetery I've photographed (insofar as "UFOs" is concerned) is Davidson River in Pisgah Forest. The cemetery next to Dunn's Rock Baptist Church (Connestee) was second runner up.
I think there may be been over a hundred at No. 1 and probably 75 at No. 2! Most of them were "field rocks!"
My hypothesis is that these were children of the deceased buried nearby, or possibly beloved slaves who had become quasi-family members after the Civil War. There were several eras of mass disease back in the day, and it's possible there was a pandemic (and nobody could afford that many headstones)!
Only the Lord knows! :)
Have a great week(end)!
|Kirk Goolsby||RE: James Davis - more|
Thanks for your help. Any information is most welcome. Thank you for his mother's name as well. That was a piece of information that I did not know.
|chuck cummins||re: Dorothy Foat memorial|
duplication was made intentionally. The date of
birth was that contained by the obituary. The
creator of the original memorial refused to enter the obituary, which is why I made the duplicate.
Have a Happy New Year
|Faye Anne Hunt||Memorial for Gladys Burts McWhorter|
Thank you so much for creating the memorial for my Grandmother. I appreciate the work that you do.
My mother, her daughter and who is still alive, and I are working on the family tree, and note that there are some clarifications for her memorial that need to be added. I would appreciate you making the following changes if possible:
Birth: 12 Jul 1913
Daughter of Clifton Mattison & Lyda Gertrude Kay Burts.
First husband was Ralph Carnege Smith, with whom she had one son and three daughters: Cecil Ralph, Mary Anne, Nadine Gertrude, and Ralphine Gladys. He is also buried in Broadmouth Church Cemetery.
Second husband was Thomas DeWitt McWhorter, who had two sons from a previous marriage: Harold, and B. H.
Thank you again.
Hi Karyn, I've sent 2nd requests today to F-A-
Grave to merge duplicate memorials for Clara Margaret Arwood Fincher #44931376 & #114013795, and James M. Roberts #100920588 & #108675154 that you brought to my attention. I'm trying! All the best, Cindy
