Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been doing genealogy for over 8 years now and I like digging up new information. This site also really helps a genealogist gather new connections as well as having photos of graves that they cant get to themselves.

Overman memorials
Just read your last message. Do you have memorials for Bill Joe Overman and Emma Lois Overman that pre-date mine. If so move them to the Campbell and Edwards cemetery and I will delete mine. If you want a transfer of any of my Overman memorials just let me know.
Thanks...Gloria J.

new cemetery
Upon closer inspection I see that the Davis Cemetery is not in the correct location for the Daniel Thomas Overman, Find A Grave #8366061, record that it contains. So I have moved my records from the Davis Cemetery to a Campbell & Edwards cemetery that I created in Find A Grave.

Thanks for bringing this to my attention.

RE: Davis Cemetery in Johnston County NC
Sorry, I didn't create that cemetery but I have added many records. I've seen the same thing in this and other cemeteries. Seems that families have their own names for burial grounds. The most recent is the Crocker Cemetery in Pine Level is now often called Price Cemetery.

Blount C. Garris
Just FYI, I have fulfilled your request for a photo of Blount C. Garris (marker says "Garries") at Woodlawn National Cemetery. This cemetery is extremely well maintained, and his stone neat, clean, and easily readable (:

Annie Brown
I saw your comment on Find A Grave about her. I was researching my mother-in-law's family whose mother Nita married George Washington Brown between 1924 and 1930 almost certainly in Tarboro since that is where both were from. They had no kids but my wife thinks she has a photo of herself sitting on "Granddaddy Brown's" lap about 1950. When she finds it I will post it to his Memorial# 78640642.

I will also get George's memorial creator to link to Annie.

Redmond Harrison cemetery
Hi Henry,

Today I visited the Redmond Harrison cemetery near Bear Grass. It is in worse shape than when you were there, because I could only see one headstone. We know more people are buried there, but the weeds, trees, etc have overcome their headstones, so they cannot be seen unless somebody gets in there with some serious landscaping tools. It's very sad. I did add photos of the cemetery and Redmond's headstone.

Lizzie Coley
My Grandmother was Nancy Pearl Coley sister to Lizzie. We visited a couple of times with Lizzie back when I was younger. It is nice to see someone that I can talk to. Would it be possible for us to swap Genealogical info on the family. I have a lot of early birth certificates and death certificates on the Coley family. My grandmother is buried not far from the Radford's old homestead. The Coley Family Cemetery there are three buried there. Zollie Coley his wife Alice Coley, and Pearl Coley. The Coley Family Cemetery is on Harrison Rd in Nash county. Hope to talk to soon Woody

RE: Washington Branch Cemetery

Hi there Henry :::waving::: I'm so very sorry for the delayed response to your inquiry about who is actually buried in Washington Branch Cemetery. I have never been to this Cemetery and can't begin to tell you who is there. But I'll say this; if the Death Record says the person you are researching is buried in Washington Branch Cemetery, then that's exactly where they are buried. I say this because Death Records are generally initiated and recorded at the time the Funeral arrangements are being made by the family member with the Funeral Director. Funeral Homes have a legal "requirement" to record where they inter the remains of every person by Law.

The Memorial I posted at Washington Branch Cemetery was based on actual "Death Record" information I came across online as I was seeking my own family members final resting place. I do that, even if it isn't my own family members in order to assist others in finding their loved ones, as I know the Death Record is even more reliable then the Census information in "most' instances as far as "burials" are concerned.

Since your friend's family member's Death Record says he/she is buried there, you might want to Post their info on Find A Grave as this gives your friend a reliable avenue to look for this burial, and it also assist the dedicated Find A Grave Members who go out to photograph headstones when visiting cemeteries.

Blessings, Sandi :-)
