Bio and Links
Bio Photo My name is Vickie. I grew up in Swannanoa, N.C. and now I live in Asheville. I enjoy researching family history and walking through cemeteries to read stones. Everyone deserves to be remembered. Someone somewhere loved them. Thanks to the great contributors here at Find a Grave, I have been able to see the graves of many family members that I would have never seen if it wasn't for their generosity. It is so nice to be able to visit a loved one's grave and not even leave the house.

If any of my memorials contain errors, or if you have information to add, please send me a message or an edit. All memorials are done with the utmost respect of those who have passed on and those of us left behind.

When my soul is restless
And things seem out of line,
I visit an old graveyard
To take a mystical step back in time.

I find the oldest tombstones
Then read the messages there;
I consider what their days had been
And how our lives in ways compare.

We all have lived though heartaches
As well as episodes of fun;
Surviving loss of loved ones,
And rewarded for a job well done.

Sometimes if I'm very still
I can hear what they have to say
And feel them reaching out to me
Grateful for my momentary stay.

I am doing Ellen's edits while she is ill. Thank you for the edits for Mrs. Tilley and her parents. I can not find a source for the birth location of Orange County, NC for Mrs. Tilley. Can you please send me your source? You may contact me through the edit tab on Mrs. Tilley's memorial page or on my profile page.
Thank you very much.

RE: Cook Family Cemetery
Thanks Vickie. I appreciate you helping me. I've also sent messages to others on here and other web sites including ancestry but haven't had any luck so I really hope someone responds to you. I too have heard it's called the Ham Cook cemetery in Cesar but I hate to drive there not really knowing where I'm going. Thank you so much.

Cook Family Cemetery
You added some memorials to the Cook Family Cemetery in Cleveland NC. Do you know the directions to the cemetery? I've asked so many different people and no one knows. I'm trying to visit Edward Cook's grave. Thank you.

Info about Shirley Hoofnagle
I saw where you had left a flower for Shirley Hoofnagle. I just found a picture in my mother's things and it was a picture of Shirley and Bill Hoofnagle. Do not know who they are. Do you? You can reply privately at

BTW I love your quotes!
