My maternal ancestors were PATTERSON and WHITAKER from Surry County, NC and I serve as a volunteer with the Surry County Genealogical Association to locate and document cemeteries as well as burials. Other family lines include CRISSMAN, RING, LOGAN, EVANS, MAINARD, CRESON, SHORE, JEFFERSON, FULK, REDMAN, and HAYMORE.|
Earliest known paternal ancestors are in Chatham Co, GA and the earliest was Benjamin Carter (b. abt 1828, d. 1862) & Mary Tillman (b. abt 1837 & d. aft 1870). Other lines include WELLS, GROOVER (GRUBER), MOBLEY, PRICE, and ROBINSON.
If I have burials that are more connected to you, will be glad to transfer them and would appreciate the same.

|Kevin Williams||RE: Yadkin County Marriages|
Yes, that is his first marriage. She died in the mid 1880s. Ancestry and other people have her dying in 1925, but that is the wrong Mary Beck. Agrippa's Mary Beck seems to have disappeared from history. Find a grave also has her picture as a decorative headstone, but many people have confused the two Mary's. The Mary on Find a Grave was a spinster and a bit "out there." She lived with her brother and is buried next to him.
|Brucene Stulen Seal||Nora Riggs|
I did some investigating in ancestry on Daniel's wife Nora, someone in ancestry has Daniels family tree including Nora and according to them
her name was Katinka Dora Adams married to Daniel
1891 in North Carolina, after Daniels death she married a James Buchanan Harrill in 1909 and moved to Oklahoma. I found a Dora Harrill memorial 17361446, not sure if it is her but I think so.
|Sue Leitzsey Bradley||RE: Dempsey Walton|
Robert, thanks for checking info on Ruby Walton. When I have some time, I'll also see what more I can find.
My direct line of Leitzsey's stayed in the Newberry, SC area, with the exception of my father. In my research, I did find where many decedents migrated to Georgia and points west and the spelling was Lightsey. I also noticed that when they went no further than the low country of SC the named was spelled Lightsey. Back in the earlier era, the name had many spelling variations and that makes researching very tedious and the census takers didn't make it any easier with their way of spelling the name.
I wish I could find more info, but I can't get no further back than to when the first one arrived in Charleston with his family from Germany.
|Tem Moody||Joshua Groover|
Joshua Groover is my great great grand-father through Rev. Rhoyand (Rowan) Joseph Groover. I would love to exchange information with you. Please respond directly to my email address. Thanks. You aren't the Bob Carter that I know from San Antonio are you? Tem (bigtem at nctv dot com)
|Carol Frost||Daniel Groover|
I checked my transcription. Daniel, wife Florence and son Gene have gravestones at Sugar Valley Methodist. The "duplicate" memorial is at Sugar Valley Baptist. It's possible the family was buried in one and relocated in the other. Florence's obit in the Calhoun Times says she was a Methodist, so the burials at SVUMC may be correct.
|Nanalee Wrenn||Garland James Medley|
Bob, Garland was my mom's first cousin. His mom Samantha Jane Medley was her Aunt. Samantha had three children by Leander Sparks before they were married then three more after they were married. Garland was their second son and both sons went by the Medley name. All the rest of the children went by Sparks.
|Jesse R. Mitchell||Loyd T 7 Sallie Woodle Smith|
Thanks Robert for the information. I added their marriage of 15 Dec 1907 in the bio of Loyd T Smith memorial. Noticed that Beckey & Taylor Russell Find A Grave#46946721 has the posting for Sallie Woodle Smith, wife of Loyd T Smith. I too do not know the parents of either one although there is a Benjamin Smith born 1853 in same cemetery that may be Loyd's father.
If you or anyone want the transfer of this memorial I will be glad to do so as I am not relate to or know this family.
|Terry Collins||RE: Regarding the Preston Cemetery, Wayne County, W.Va.|
In response to grave-sites I want photographs of at Preston Cemetery, Wayne County... I have many photo requests I would like assistance in fulfilling at Preston Cemetery. They are listed on the Preston Cemetery section.
However, if that is a bit too many, then I would be most grateful for any 'CURNUTTE' grave-site photographs you can obtain from that particular location.
I thank you, Robert. Truly.
Best Wishes & Have A Great Spring,
|Terry Collins||Regarding the Preston Cemetery, Wayne County, W.Va.|
You stated that you might swing by the Preston Cemetery in Wayne County, West Virginia this July to possibly get more photographs of folks I've requested photographs for. That is mighty kind of you to offer.
I do not have any more photographs from Preston Cemetery than what is on Find-a-Grave. I have never been there, but have been nearby in the Curnutte Cemetery at Radnor. I guess if I would have stayed on the road a few more miles I would have reached it (if I am reading the map correctly).
If you can't make it to Preston Cemetery this year, please do not let it bother you, at least where I am concerned. Plans can change, and that is just how life is. I'm telling you nothing new, of course.
If you do make it to the Preston Cemetery, and take more photographs, please feel free to post them. I wouldn't feel right with you doing all the work, and me just sitting at home posting them. Your offer and your generosity are most kind, Bob. Truly.
People like you are one of the reasons that Find-A-Grave is such a fine place. And the few times I've run into some rude folks here is greatly diminished by the vast majority of really decent folks I have had the pleasure to meet... you most definitely included, my friend.
I hope all is fine where you are, Bob.
|Coy O. York||Eunice Henderson|
Hi Bob, Good to hear from you again. To my knowledge, there is no "old" Wilkesboro Town Cemetery. You're right about the Presbytarian Church as the the original name. The cemetery is located one block of main street diagonally behind the Presbytarian Church.
The church was placed on the Historic Register in 1982 and the cemetery went uncared for. BSA Troop 385 (with some guidance) restored the cemetery which is now called by both names. If you ask the locals, you can get either answer. However, to my knowledge no official name change has been made. So "officially" I believe it's still the Presbytarian Church Cemetery. Coy
