Martha Moreland King
Please contact me at I do believe we e-mailed once before, but I was busy working and it was my old computer. I am taking a hiatus from work and am researching my families genealogical information and trying to get it organized in some way. I am specifically looking for George Washintgon King, Sr. and Martha Moreland King's marriage information, where, when, and so on.

Joseph Daniel Baker, Memorial# 24046479
Hi Bart,

Thank you for recording The Natural Steps Cemetery. You are doing wonderful work. It is especially helpful to people like me who are "Armchair Genealogists"!

Will you please consider posting a photo of Joseph Daniel Baker's headstone? He died and was buried in Natural Steps in February of 1998?

Thank you again and keep up the great work!

Happy Hunting, Janet

RE: Old Macedonia Cemtery
I know how you feel. I have been trying forever to find my great-great-great grandfathers grave. I can't even narrow it down to a cemetery or even a death year yet. Very frustrating. Have you by any chance contacted the church? I know it might be a long shot, but maybe they know what plot they are buried in? Or, if they just have a list of all of the Morelands buried in the cemetery, it might just be a matter of process of elimination. I looked at my photos and I have two blank slabs without markers side by side between some other Morelands. I just am not sure if those are the only two or if there are more. If all the other Morelands are accounted for, might be easier to narrow it down to those two maybe. I think (not sure) that church is still in town. They moved from that site into town and still use the cemetery for burial to my knowledge. I just don't see a phone number for them online.

RE: Old Macedonia Cemtery
Also, in regards to Travis Moreland, I do not think he is buried in the old Macedonia Primitive Cemetery. There are about 5 Macedonia Cemeteries in our two counties in this area. Right down the road from the old cemetery where Nannie is buried is a newer one, and from what I understand from reading the marker out front, it is the for the same church once it moved to a new location (I hope that makes sense). There are several more Macedonia cemeteries but they are in different towns associated with different churches I think. I think (not certain, but think) Travis Moreland is buried in this newer Macedonia Cemetery (and by newer I mean still 100+ years old, just newer than the old cemetery). I have been out there and there are a lot of Morelands buried out there whereas I have not seen any Morelands in the other Macedonia cemeteries in other towns. There are a couple of different Moreland plots at the newer cemetery. I looked, but did not see Travis. However, there are several graves that are just blank slabs that are missing or never had headstones near some of the Moreland graves. There are also a few graves out there that are hard to read, but I don't know if they are Morelands or not. According to one of the memorials on findagrave Travis is buried in this cemetery and according to his death certificate (I think you may have been the one who uploaded it) he is buried in Macedonia Cemetery in Terrell Co, which should be that one. I took photos of all the graves there and am hoping to upload them soon. I uploaded a few new photos to B.L. Moreland on his memorial page since I recognized his name from Nannie's grave and remembered I had photos. I can send you photos of the Morelands and unmarked graves near the Morelands graves if you would like. Also, there is one other Macedonia Cemetery I have not been to yet and I will check there when I get to go. There are some Morelands buried there too, but I have not seen any surveys show a Travis Moreland.

Sorry for the long messages, but I wanted to give you all the info I know. Hopefully I am not being confusing. Plus I noticed the requests for a photo of his grave and have been trying to find it and frustrated I can't yet!

RE: Old Macedonia Cemtery
You're very welcome! I did not see any other Morelands there, but there could be unmarked graves. I found the 14 graves that were recorded the last time they surveyed the cemetery, but I think that there might be more unmarked graves because from my understanding the cemetery has been in use since around 1848 (although I could be wrong) and they quit using it around 1875 (again, I am not completely sure). I am sad to say the cemetery is in very poor shape. It is on private property and neglected. Most of the adults are buried with slabs and/or tombstones. Those graves themselves are fine, but most of the tombstones are broken into pieces. There are also several above ground sarcophagus type graves (not sure what they are called). Those are unfortunately all busted open with not much left I don't think it was vandalism, just nature. There are trees growing through some of them. The good news is Nannie Moreland's grave was in the best shape of any in the cemetery. The grave itself was fine, no caving in or anything. The tombstone was whole, not missing any parts and no major cracks. It was pretty easy to read with only a little biological growth on it. I am uploading photos of all the graves we found to their memorial pages on here and I will upload the photos of the cemetery to its page, but I would be happy to email you photos as well if you would like to see more of them!

Billy Gray
Hello, sir. I was just wondering if you could tell me anything about Billy Gray. I saw in the flowers that you are family? I know this seems odd, but I've just been very curious about his grave ever since I saw it.

RE: The Webbers
Thank you for the headstone photos. I have written an article for our Elm Springs Newsletter. It is about the James Webber Family as it relates mostly to Elm Springs. I am always looking for new material.
