|Bio and Links|
I am a retired elementary school teacher and administrator. I am very passionate about genealogy and the history of Western North Carolina and Blount/Monroe Counties of Tennessee. I will be happy to share photographs from local cemeteries here in the Crabtree/Iron Duff area of Haywood County, NC.|
If you have time, I would appreciate your paying a visit to the memorial for my brother David Edwards Nichols, Metz Cemetery, Graham County, NC. David passed away on February 17, 2012. He was an avid genealogist and took many photos of stones for Find A Grave, as well as located pictures of individuals so I could post them. I have many more to post because he worked much faster than I. He's in Heaven now, and knows the answers to many of the questions I still have about our ancestors--always a step ahead of me. Thank you.
David Edward Nichols

I am looking for the parents of my great grandmother Barbary Rose who married Stephen Newberry. Could Nathan be related somehow. Thanks.

Thanks Frances -- No problem, I'll get photos transferred. Those 2 cemeteries are just across Rafter Road from each other. I really enjoyed doing all the Rafter area cemeteries, such a peaceful area.

|Molly Ann Lindsey||RE: The Story Teller Post|
Your welcome Fran,
The member just below your message to me, Wayne L. Osborne has it posted in his bio and I felt the same way when I read it. I think he is special for caring so much also.
|Molly Ann Lindsey||my post|
If you need to take my previous post off because it is so big that is fine. I just wanted to share it with you.

The Story Tellers.....
We are the chosen. My feelings are in each family there is one who seems called to find the ancestors. To put flesh on their bones and make them live again, to tell the family story and to feel that somehow they know and approve. To me, doing genealogy is not a cold gathering of facts but, instead, breathing life into all who have gone before. We are the story tellers of the tribe. All tribes have one. We have been called as it were by our genes. Those who have gone before cry out to us: Tell our story. So, we do. In finding them, we somehow find ourselves. How many graves have I stood before now and cried? I have lost count. How many times have I told the ancestors you have a wonderful family you would be proud of us? How many times have I walked up to a grave and felt somehow there was love there for me? I cannot say. It goes beyond just documenting facts. It goes to who am I and why do I do the things I do? It goes to seeing a cemetery about to be lost forever to weeds and indifference and saying I can't let this happen. The bones here are bones of my bone and flesh of my flesh. It goes to doing something about it. It goes to pride in what our ancestors were able to accomplish. How they contributed to what we are today. It goes to respecting their hardships and losses, their never giving in or giving up, their resoluteness to go on and build a life for their family. It goes to deep pride that they fought to make and keep us a Nation. It goes to a deep and immense understanding that they were doing it for us. That we might be born who we are. That we might remember them. So we do. With love and caring and scribing each fact of their existence, because we are them and they are us. So, as a scribe called, I tell the story of my family. It is up to that one called in the next generation to answer the call and take their place in the long line of family storytellers. That, is why I do my family genealogy, and that is what calls those young and old to step up and put flesh on the bones.

|Rhonda Koons||George Koons|
Frances, I noticed something under Stumpy Nath Hughes, it shows George Koons as his son, but I think this is incorrect. It has been said by family members that George Koons' father was a doctor from Monroe County. Lonnie Koons' father is supposed to be Johnny Nath Hughes. He was shot and killed when he was about 30, and is buried in the Burchfield Cemetary on Parson's Branch Road in Cades Cove. I think Stumpy Nath, and Johnny Nath are brothers, but I might be wrong.
