|Bio and Links|
I like cemeteries because they are like outdoor museums whether for my own family history or a community's history. The grave-markers are sometimes the only image one has of an ancestor. Truly, the only way to 'preserve' a cemetery is to list the inscriptions (aka 'read a cemetery')and take photos of the grave markers. |
NOTICE TO THOSE LEAVING MESSAGES: Please do not send or leave me a message if I can't do the same with you.
NOTE to photographers: Please don't add photos [of grave markers] to memorials that already have photos unless yours is outstanding - seriously - there is no need to have multiple photos if the ones already on the memorial are done well. There are so many memorials that do need photos -- try to find those and contribute in that way - it will be appreciated so much more by all.
MESSAGES: I discard messages periodically to keep the list at a manageable length.

Thanks as always! I did not know about the edits. By the way, Paul Clyburn's first wife was Annie Caroline Blakeney,sometimes referred to as "Annie" or "Caroline". Found this on Ancestry.com as well as from one of his son's wife who still lives in Wingate,NC.

Thank You so much for adding the Picture of Mattie's new Cemetery Marker, it is truly beautiful. Again, also many thanks for all of your prior work involved with Her Father, Weary Clyburn.
I have installed your Picture on the Top of all the Pictures, for Her Memorial. God Bless, Cindy.

Thank you so much for getting the photo. It confirms my research that she was the wife of Doc Cash. I really appreciate it!!

Thanks for adding the AWESOME photo to this memorial. Very classy looking ladies!
|Rita McKale||RE: 87401438 Esther Barba|
Thank you for letting me know. I have had a lot of contact lately about this little cemetery. How generous of Mr. Barbee to place a stone in her memory. I wish more cared about honoring those who have gone on before us.

|Gina Cates Shumaker||Thank you|
Thanks for the tombstone pictures of C. Winfred Baucom and Janie Sanders Baucom. I appreciate it!
|Clifford Cantrell||RE: Malinda Evelyn Austin Fowler James|
I believe the man in the center with the bowed head is Rueben James. That hat is consistent with the hat he is wearing in other pictures on your library site.
I can positively identify the woman to his right as Gilie James Colvard (his granddaughter and my grandmother). The three small girls to her right are Mildred Colvard (Gregory), Carrie Elizabeth "Libby" Colvard (Cantrell, my mother), Jean Colvard (Morris). The man with dark hair and no had in the middle of the children is QE Colvard
Photos for comparison are available here:
Thanks for your posting. I am going to send an annotated photo with these id's to the geneology site at the library.

Thank you for your contributions to find a grave.
I got a pleasant surprise the other day when I looked at my gggrandmothers listing and found a picture of her funeral. Although I could not identify my gggrandfather (due to his hat), I could identify my grandfather (QE Colvard) my grandmother (Gilie Colvard) and their three children (including my mother Elizabeth Colvard Cantrell). Thank you for the photograph.
Do you have any other photos of the funeral?
|Christine Hughes Arrington||Memory of Ms. Chrestfield|
When I was growing up in Monroe, NC during the 1950s and 60s, I heard my mother Ella Rushing Hughes speak of Ms. Annie Chrestfield a lot. My mother always referred to her as "Miss Annie Chrestfield."
Ms. Chrestfield was well known, respected and liked throughout our community in Monroe. Thank you for remembering her.
Christine Hughes Arrington, granddaughter of George and Gillie Rushing
