|Bio and Links|
I was born in Nebraska, raised in eastern North Carolina and after living in various parts of the U.S., I now live in northern Utah, just below the Idaho boarder.|
Can't remember when I didn't enjoy going through graveyards. So being a part of Find A Grave is perfect for me.
The first joke I can remember being told was by my father who died in 1961.
He'd pull up to a cemetery and say "Kids, this is the most popular place in town. Yep! People are just dying to get inside." And he and Mom would just chuckle as we drove away.
Being young at the time, it didn't hit me for
years what he meant so, that is how my curiosity
got the better of me. I just had to find out
about all those people who were "Dying" to get inside those graveyards.
The family names I'm researching the most are TEW, GODWIN, HAYES & JACKSON out of North Carolina, Alabama, Georgia, Florida, Texas & Flroida.
OBERMIER, FINKE, WEIMER & AGGEN out of Nebraska, Wisconsin & Germany.
I've been doing genealogy for 40+ years and it is one of things that I love to do.
Thank you to those who have helped me out with my requests.

|Eli Chandler||RE: Tew families|
Hi again Latitia! Good to hear back from you so fast. I have talked to Elma Tew a few months back and got a little information from her. After I emailed you I saw where you and she had emailed. We are all cousins. Her husband was a fourth cousin of mine I think. I don`t pay for ancestory.com so I guess I can`t go on there. That is my problem. I don`t have access to all the paid sites like some people. Two cheap to pay for it. I don`t think people should have too. Anyway, I live fairly close to Elma and know about where she lives. Next month I hope to meet up with her and go to some cemeteries down here in Alabama. We will talk more then. Do you know about the five Tew brothers from Alabama who fought for the Confederacy. Four died during the war and one returned. If you check out my memorials you can read about them. I ready need to write a long article about it. Just finished putting some of the stuff on today. I still want to get to the bottom of the N.C. Tew`s one day. I will be in touch again soon. Sincerely, distant cousin, Eli Chandler

Hi Latitia, that is surely an unusual name in the USA. I like it. I saw some of your Tew memorials and I was hoping that our Tew lines might cross. I am a little confused about the migrations in N.C. county`s. Some of the names match but the dates are different. Got to be a connection somehow. I descend from some of the Sampson County, N.C. Tew`s. Daniel, John, Robert, Daniel, John Lewis Tew(died 8/23/1846), Wallace,(1803-3/29/1861), Nathan W.(1/29/1834-1877), Emma E. Tew Dubose, just to name a few. This is my Dubose line. I would be glad to trade some information if you are interested. You probably have more than me. Hoping for the best. Sincerely, Eli Chandler

Hi. You have posted one person to Holly Grove Church Cemetery in Johnston Co., NC.
I am looking for a Joseph Pender whose death certificate says he was buried at "Holly Grove." He was b. 1864, d. 1918. Never married. Parents were Wiley and Polly Davis Pender. Don't know where they are buried. No info. Family is from Johnston County. Do you have any ideas of how to pursue this, to see if Joseph is at this cemetery? Thanks for your time!

|D. Young||RE: McLaurin's Cemetery|
I know what you mean about obligations. This is the John McLaurin Cemetery, commonly called the McLaurin Cemetery. It is located off Ball Park Road in Eastover, Cumberland County, NC. There is some confusion, as John had a brother, Duncan, whose family cemetery is also in that community. 'Hope this information helps.

It is me again. Haven't talked to you in several months and hope all is well. I see that you have made a memorial for Edna Ashley Hair Smith, daugher of John Thomas Hair and Doshia Draughon and you placed her in the Long Cemetery, in Brunswick County, NC. You asked for clarification if anyone had it. She is in fact buried in the Calvary Tabernacle Pentecostal Church at Piney Green, Sampson Co., NC, as is one of her brothers and one of her sisters. I have seen her grave and marker. That would be great if you could make the change. Thanks, Larry Draughon
