Bio and Links
Presently living in Florida, I grew up in Pender County in eastern North Carolina. I retired after 40 years in the classroom, teaching elementary level students in NC and FL. My grandparents were from the Murphy, Southerland, Marshburn, and Wells families in Duplin, Bladen,and Sampson counties. Recent searches for family information led me to the Find-a-Grave site. I began recording information of relatives' gravesites in 2009.

RE: Oops!
Ok I guess today is dense Monday for me, I have over 3000 relatives listed on Find A Grave. If I could have the name, names you are referring to, in which cemetery youe are referring to and the name of the person you came up with, when you placed your query, I can address your needs. If I have something listed that is not correct or you do not believe is correct I will happily make all the necessary CHANGES TO MAKE IT RIGHT.
If these are your relatives and I made the entries I will be happy to transfer ownership.

No Guts, No Glory
Marshburn Cemetery Gravesite
Hello Ms. Klavins...

I am not sure that I am going to be much help...I will try though, but I am in Florida, and to while away the time when my mom (she is 92 and I babysit her everyday from 6a - 9p) is busy doing her crossword puzzles, I get on my computer and search about 50 funeral homes and newspapers that I have 'adopted' and add the obits...
The death that I added to Marshburn Cemetery was exactly one of those. When there is limited information given, I add what I think is ok, and then if someone drops me a line with a correction as to city or county, then I correct it.
Sorry, but if I can help you, I would like to try...
