Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born and raised in Atlanta, but have lived most of my adulthood in Charlotte, North Carolina. Coincidentally I ended up right where my roots are on my father's side of the family. Genealogy is my passion and I never met a cemetery I didn't like. I'm also into historic preservation, both of buildings and the lives of people no longer with us.

As the daughter of a general and great-granddaughter of 3 Confederate veterans, I like to note military records of veterans on their findagrave memorials.

I welcome corrections/additions, but will no longer link to a "burial unknown" person. I have found this leads to duplicates.

FAMILIES ON MY FATHER'S SIDE: Irwin, DeWeese, Blackwelder, Babcock, Taylor, Wilbon.

FAMILIES ON MY MOTHER'S SIDE: Bryan, Battle, Pope, Atkinson, Yarbrough, Chappell.

Vessie Belk
Thank you for the info on Vessie Belk. The Belk's and my parents were very close friends, traveling all over the country together pulling their camping trailers. I had not realized she was a registered nurse till I looked at her marker.

Headstone picture
Hi Susan, my name is Norma Jean Alexander Franssen. I go by Norma Franssen. I was trying to find a picture of my brothers headstone and there's not one. Hoping that you could help with getting one. He is at Sunset Memory Gardens. I saw that you were the one who did my parent's picture. His name is Lafayette Morrison Alexander Jr. His parents preceded him in death are Lafayette Sr. and Julia Viola Gladden Alexander. He had no children. All of his siblings are still living. I can give you their names if you would like to list them. You can email me at Juliav2328@att.net. Thank you, Norma Franssen

Landon Walker daughter obit
Susan: This obit in the local paper caught my eye. When I saw she was the daughter of a Walker from North Carolina, I had to check findagrave & lo & behold, her father is 1 of your posts. I assume you want to know. ALLEN WALKER

I am sending you a handmade award -

RE: Alice Cuthbertson Maye
Hi Susan,
I have her original birth certificate. Her name on it is Alice Lawrence Cuthbertson, born to Arthur Vance Cuthbertson and Alice Lee Lawrence. My mother and her brothers also know this to be her name, and her sister, whom you have no record of on here, confirmed that as well. Bonnie has never been a part of her name to anyone's knowledge. Do you have a copy of the birth record that you are referencing? Thank you!
