Hello all my findagrave friends! I hope you're having a wonderful day.|
I try to research my findagrave memorials and add maiden names to the married females. Extra information is gathered from death certificates and census records when time permits.
My genealogy research is on my SHEW, CALL, COMER & DAVIS families of NC and my husband's LANDERS, ROPER & HUME families.
Please use the EDIT button on the memorial page when you suggest family links or updates! Requests for transfers outside of findagrave guidelines will be disregarded (ignored).
Please be aware that all photos are copyrighted. If you wish to use one of my photos you must send me a request and you must credit my work.
I know there's some controversy over chalking. I go by the Association of Gravestone Studies recommendation that no chalk should be used. Check out their page of Do's and Don'ts here:
http://www.gravestonestudies.org/faq.htm#Some Gravestone Rubbings Dos and Don'ts. Check out http://www.ncgenweb.us/newhanover/cem1.html on their Aluminum Foil Method. It works really well!
I'd like to thank everyone at findagrave.com for making this site such a wonderful resource. You're the best!

The burial for 37099000 might be in the wrong cemetery since another one was posted by area resident Kathy Mills at 103364231.
Although your burial was listed first, Kathy has her burial and grave photo at Mt. Nebo and not at Mt. Zion which you show as the burial place.
It's great that both of you take grave photos but hopefully y'all can get together and clear up the duplicates.
Thanks for the corrections.

|Linda Beasley||RE: Salisbury National Cemetery|
I just found your message. Thank you. The cemetery is particularly beautiful when the Christmas wreaths have been placed.
|Brat Douglas||RE: Thank you|
No, I am not related to the Burgess side. I am related to the Parker Side. Sarah's brother Lorenzo was my great great grandfather :-)
|Brat Douglas||Thank you|
for connecting Nicholas Burgess to his wife Sarah Parker.
|Bob Carter||RE: Pilot View Friends|
OK, will send you the particulars when I get time.
Also, are you related to Carolyn Comer, Register of Deeds in Surry? She is a distant coousin of mine via the WHITAKER lines. My mother was a PATTERSON from Pilot Mtn and her mother was a WHITAKER.

Notice you have lots of records and photos of Pilot View Friends in Yadkin County. Do you live there or are you related to those buried there? Was wondering since you don't include places of birth/death and didn't know if you connected with them or were just posting data for Find A Grave as a volunteer like me.
I've looked up the given names and marriages and parents of most of those buried there, so if you need something let me know.
|Dianne||RE: Shew Graveyard|
This is what was in an answer from Christine Fairchild: The Shew Ridge Mission cemetery is the same as the Shew Cemetery as far as I know and there are only four names there. I don't know if it has been photographed or is even in a state of repair that it could be.
And this came from Rich Kreiss:
Shady Grove Cemeteries
Dianne - If I recall correctly, I've been down this road before. Seems to me someone contacted me several years ago about both cemeteries and I understood then that both of them do exist. I recall moving several of my memorials from one to the other after a survey of both cemeteries were done. I am not very familiar with all of Wilkes County and I've never been to either cemetery. There are several very knowledgeable folks on this website that know the county like the back of their hand, i.e., Chris Fairchild, Carol Kennedy, Coy York and Barb Pipek to name a few. I often lean on them when I need to know something about the area.
I've left both of these messages on my profile page that you are able to view. Still at work on the Shew's. Thanks for your help!
