Bio and Links
Bio Photo Born at North River Corner, abt. 6 mi. north east of Beaufort,Carteret County, N. C. Where I lived until my dad died in 1946, then we moved to South River, which is 28 miles north of Beaufort, N. C. I am 77 years old and now live in Asheville, N.C. My mother was born and raised at South River. All of the people who lived there were kin to her. The Hardys, Cannons, Edwards, Pittmans,Tostos, Wallaces, Cahoons, Dixons, Lewis, & Simpkins.I married into the Gasperson,Rogers,Lance, Williams, Whiteside,and Ingle Familys all from the Asheville, NC area.
I have worked at genealogy for over 25 years and still love it.
You may use any info I have input for any non commercial purpose.
I worked with the Bell System for 40 years. First in Virginia with C&P Telephone then moved back to North Carolina in 1974. I worked in Asheville for one year and was promoted to Plant Manager in hendersonville, N.C. I worked there until 1982 and was transfered to Charlotte where I worked until I retired in 1996 with 40 years. I then went work with a cotractor doing Engineering work for the same Bell South Company and worked for five more years before finally I retired in 2001.
Transfer requests should be for direct relatives within four generations. This would be your siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.

No Aunts, Uncles or Cousins.

RE: Jennie Hopper
Ralph: Looking good as best I can tell. However, here is the correct location so you can add "Square 132" to what you have.

South Addition Square 132 Lot 4

Thank you as always,

RE: Adrian Davis
Hey Ralph,

I am sorry. I didn't mean for that to happen. I agree with you. The other person probably wasn't even aware that yours existed. I just figured the two might get combined. I am still in the learning stages as to how all of this works.

I so appreciate all that you have done in recording information. It has been most helpful to me in putting together missing pieces, not to mention the fact that I enjoy finding out where these folks are buried. Please keep up the good work.

RE: david allen

I'm sorry Ralph, but would you mind to please send me the Memorial Number for this person, as I don't recall what your info pertains to, and I'm so backlogged with email that it's going to take at least a week and a half of concerted effort to catch up. Sorry for the inconvenience, but I'm going in ten differing directions at this time and just can't remember everything. Thanks, Sandi :-)

RE: Martin Ross Willis (JR)
As I said, Abigail Mason Willis and Martin Ross Willis, Sr. are my gg grandparents. That's all I can think of right now. If I come across any more I will let you know. My head is swimming w/ information right now. Their children are Mattie Heck Willis Piner, Daisly Willis Brock, Manny Willis, Sidney Willis Eaton (my great grandmother - I maintain her memorial), Annie Willis, John Bell Willis, James Edward Willis, Martin Jr., and Emily Willis. I am still trying to track down where they all are buried.
