Bio and Links
I am a PK (Pastor's Kid), so I have lived in many different places during my lifetime, and I don't really claim any one of them as "home", although I did live in northern Virginia for 25 years as an adult.

But both of my parents were born and raised in the farming community of Meadow, near Benson, NC, and both of their families have lived in Johnson County for generations. This makes it relatively easy to research my ancestors. But there are over 1000 cemeteries in Johnston County, and many of them are not easy to find. I enjoy visiting cemeteries and looking for an unexpected surprise.

I enjoy taking photos for other people who are not so lucky to have most of their ancestors in one geographical area. I think of my grave searches as scavenger hunts.

Holly Grove Church Cemetery
Hi, Connie. Thanks for all you do. I am looking for Joe Pender who is my husband's grand uncle. His death cert indicates he was living in Wayne Co. when he died, but for burial it says Holly Grove. Would you/could you please check to see if he is at the Holly Grove Church Cemetery in Johnson Co? From the two pics you posted it looks like quite an old one. He lived 1859-1918. Never married. We looked for the cemetery one time and were directed to the old Holly Grove Church and the new one, but no indication of a cemetery at either. Thanks so much.

RE: Augusta Barefoot? Dodd? Parker?
The Best I Can figure From the cenus data This is the Same person Married Twice First to Wiiliam Dodd in 1920 they are shown living with her mother Alice Louvenia Lee Barefoot in the 1930 census and again in 1940 in their own home with a child Essie May Dodd. Then I found A marriage record for Augusta Dodd to Wilbur Elbert Parker then there is the dath certificate you mentioned showing her parents to be John Vinson Barefoot and Alice louvenia Barefoot With her husband Being Wilber Parker.

Henry Mark Johnson Cemetery
Could you please put the cemetery photos on the Henry Mark Johnson Cemetery.

Somehow F.A.G. renamed it to Hood's Grove Baptist Church Cemetery.

(of course this cemetery is a couple of miles from Henry Johnson's. I have emailed F.A.G...its been over 2 months so I'm going to delete the other cemetery after you have time to add the cemetery photos.
Much Thanks for your hard work!
