Bio and Links
Bio Photo My sister Ann Manley Reid Hamlin and I started searching for our ancestors in 1978 before all the automation took place. We enjoyed visiting the court houses and cemeteries where our relatives live. Just getting back into genealogy now in 2012 to document what we found and get new information. We are descendants of Samuel Watson Reid (1831-1902) g-grandfather of the Steele Creek area of Charlotte and Manley's of Carnesville, GA.

Current genealogy projects:
1. Volunteer indexer for the 1940 Federal Census
2.Photo Documenting (with the help of my husband) tombstones in Mooresville, Iredell county, NC and listing on
-- Glenwood Memorial Cemetery Mooresville
-- Willow Valley Cemetery Mooresville
-- Green Acres Mooresville
-- Berea Baptist Church Mooresville
-- Rocky Mount United Methodist
-- Fair View United Methodist Church Mt Mourne
-- Iredell Memorial Gardens Statesville
3. family tree joint with daughter

Dorothy was my mom's (Alma) Sister. I was wondering if you would mind transferring her memorial to me. I have information I can add. I'm trying to connect to as many of my relatives as I can. Aunt Dorothy is buried in Iredell Memorial Gardens, Statesville. I live in Taylorsville, N.C.
Thank you,
Carolyn Jenkins

Isabell Freeman Photo Request
Hi Barbara, I saw your photo request for Isabell Freeman's grave at Steele Creek Presbyterian & went over yesterday. Plot 2AW is for a Isabella Freeman, wife of J. Thaddus Freeman, but there is a big discrepancy between the date of death that you posted (1864) and what is one the headstone (Apr 30, 1913.) I have the pics, let me know if you want me to fulfill the request. Thanks, Gen
