Bio and Links
Bio Photo I get such joy by spending hours and hours in front of my computer, whenever I can, to work on my family tree. The simple act of researching family led me to this site where I found a lot of records and pictures already posted for my relatives. I then requested several pictures and was amazed with the willingness of strangers to kindly go out of their way to help me. This made me determined to start adding my missing relatives to Find-A-Grave, a continuous act as I research my family tree.
I have since taken on transcribing and photographing a large cemetery near my home as payback for the many photos I have requested and received from Find-A-Grave volunteers.
I am married and live in New Jersey. I have two college age sons. My husband and children do not understand my passion and tell me to "get a life", but I need an outlet after working all day at 2 part-time jobs and I'd rather do this than waste away my time in front of the TV like they do.

RE: Nellie Greeson Ray
Nice to hear from you. I am not manager of Nellie's memorial, but since I created Mary Frances' memorial, I guess I am manager of it. If you submitted any changes to Mary's memorial, I haven't seen them, so perhaps you should try again, or just send me a message here with the changes in it. Also, if you would like to manage Mary's memorial, just let me know and I'll sign it over to you. I don't live in N.C., but went to high school in Gibsonville and know many of the families that are represented in the Brick Church Cemetery, so I photographed almost all of the headstones there and entered the photos in their memorials, where they were missing and created memorials for those who didn't have one.

RE: James Jackson
They are unlinked. I never received any message from you regarding this matter on Ancestry. I have been tracing my family tree for over 10 years as well as researching family trees for others. Although I don't get to do it as often as I would like to. I don't think it's right to chastise someone just because we came across different records. Have a good day.

Joseph Cianci
Hello Eleanor, I have a quick question about Joseph Cianci. I believe he could be my great grandmothers brother but she had an "o" at the end of maiden name, what would be the possibility that their name was changed? Was Ciancio.
Thanks!! Helen

Thanks, have made the corrections. Sometimes census records and death certificates really massacre the spelling of names!

RE: James Wood
I think you may be right. When I went back and looked at the dates of the other two marriages I started to think that maybe Nancy died and then he married a sister or some other family member as back in those days it was normal for another unmarried member to step up. I will email you those two documents now so you can take a look. Thanks for all the good information.

RE: James Kile Jackson
According to the 1850 and 1860 Censuses William R. Jackson and his wife Jerusha Rachel Smith live in Moore Co. NC. Listed in the 1860 Census is a son James age 9. In the census also shows a woman Nancy Smith perhaps the mother of Jerusha. James Kile Jackson's death certificate list his parents as William Jackson and Jerusha Smith both of Moore Co. NC.

RE: James Wood
I have something more interesting - I have two marriage certificates for this James (son of Calvin) the first one is between James and Mary Jane Prince, October 6, 1892, and the second one is between James and Mary Holt, October 13, 1896.

I am going to try digging a little more because even if he is not my James it is really interesting stuff.

Is there a way to upload files to your James' site? If so I could attach to the site and you could grab them.

RE: James Wood
I am sending a second reply because I found your James' first marriage certificate and his wife's name was Mary Jane Prince and not Nancy Prince, which is the name of my great-grandmother. Bottom line is this is not my great-grandfather as he was not married to Nancy but to Mary Jane. If you want I can download the certificate from the site and send it to you. The one child you have listed (Luna Jackson) is my great uncle born to James and Nancy. I got real excited at finding more information and almost totaled my files until I found the marriage certificate. Hope this information is helpful to you. Thank you.

RE: James Wood
Thank you for the information. I will use this to make correction to my data. So this means we are related by the fact that James is great-grandfather to both of us. Do you know where I can locate a copy of the marriage certificate?
