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.

marshall and adcock family
I have noticed you have found my Father in Law's family even the Gilden Methodist Cemetary where his parent's were buried. I understand some people like this but His family ie. Himself, His wife, His parent and further up in his ancestory, Her Parents and further up in her ancestory WOULD NOT. It is not fair to them to have their graves plastered all over the internet. So please Start with my Husband below David Henley Marshall and work your way back like you did in the first place. And remove the Grave sites. This is their dignity we are talking about. Others may like it be cause they can find their family heritage but they can also find their family heritage at the library, on, by going to cemetaries in the area, by going to and just searching. You don't have to plaster grave sites to know your ancestors. You can look for them on the social security dept, on the census bureau and many other sites that are free! So please remove all of my husbands family and if you have any family members related to Henry w Edmonds MI, and Mildred Donnabel Edmonds, MI, George Clark and Dorothy Clark, MI, Willard Clark and any other Clark and Edmonds related to this family I would remove them too as they are my side of the family and we are Irish and Scots and we don't like it either! Thank you Helen Marshall (formerly Clark)

Grave of David Marshall Please Remove
Please Remove the Find a Grave Information on David Henley Marshall 127496223 and also his parents links please. I am the wife of David and in the obituary they left my name off and my childrens so the obituary is wrong. There is no date on the stone of his death. And we were private people (especially his parents who would NOT like you taking pictures of their graves!) And I also do not appreciate you taking a picture of my Husbands grave! And if you don't believe that I am his wife look up his death certificate my maiden name will be listed as Helen Clark. And Flora and James Marshall are rolling over in their graves right now and if their family had come across this ie. their children they wouldn't be kindly asking for the removal like I am. And if you have Flora's parents or Jame's parents I would remove them too. i.e anyone else in the Adcock or Marshall family at Stokesdale United Methodist Church Cemetary as these were very private people (the whole town are private people and don't appreciate people taking pictures of their graves. It isn't done in this town!)I would remove them from Find A Grave Speaking as a Daughter In Law. thank you and I expect when I look up my family again they will all be removed! Helen Marshall

Madeline & Edwin Kamin
Hi Vickie, I can't thank you enough for your generosity and fixing Madeline's & Eddy's bios and so quickly too. I'd be honored if you would continue to manage their memorials. Am so new to F-A-G and prefer for an experienced person to do this. I added two pictures to Madeline's memorial. Hope they will make you smile. Our hearts are full of sweet memories, even though our arms are now empty. Christel & Larrie

Robert L Ingle - incorrect

You have the title name to my husband's uncle incorrect. It reads Robert L Ingle and his name is Ronald L Ingle.

Thank you for posting these. I'm pulling a lot of information together for my son about his family on all sides.

I hope you enjoy a great day!

Fannie Mae Wykle McGaha
Thank you Mam for the input on Memorial # 150815299 Fannie Mae Wykle McGahs. She was my Aunt and was buried beside my Mother. I will work on the links to her 2 Husbands who have passed on before and work on a Bio. When the death date is entered in the Grave Stone my Sister will send me a Photo to include in the Memorial Site Information. Thanks again and have a Great Day.

William Street
In order to find Will Street's cemetery, recommend that you post his death certificate, with his name and his wife' maiden name, and make sure to list their children and post to the following Facebook pages. Someone is bound to know what road or where his cemetery is. FB Pages are:
(1) Yancey Co. NC Genealogy Research
(2) The History and People of Mitchell County, NC
(3) Mitchell Co. NC Genealogy Research
(4) Historic Mitchell County

You could also post an RFI on the Mitchell and Yancey pages on the Ancestry boards

Good luck!
