RE: Dudley M. Stevens 1829-1865
You are more than welcome! Yes, it is a large cemetery. They have a cool kiosk at the entrance though that helps you find many of the names. There are still a lot that aren't mapped on the kiosk but it was a good starting point.

the newsome cemeteries
hi Miranda. hope this finds you well. I just noticed that someone has 'combined' the 2 different cemeteries in forsyth county in which my relatives are buried. the Newsome Family Cemetery AND the Newsom-Hendrix Cemetery. of course you know that these are two (2) totally different cemeteries being located in 2 different locations in the community and I was curious as to whether you might have knowledge of the fact that somebody has incorrectly combined them, or have any info about why this may have happened. please email me at when possible. thank you kindly. patti newsome

I presume you know Omeda Brewer died a few years ago although her website is still on-line. She was a good e-mail friend of mine from the Piedmont area here in NC.

Griffin Cemtery
Hello, my name is Brandon Hooker....I was wondering if you could tell me where this Griffin cemetery is in Rural Hall. I'm a direct descendant of Pleasent and Elizabeth Griffin, and would like to visit this cemetery.

Thank you!

Thank's for the link requests. I see you've made a request to Dorothy Hart Pence to link Claude Hart. Unfortunately Dorothy is deceased.

RE: Sarah Ann Griffin m. Frank Francis Westmoreland
What I have is that Sarah Ann Griffin (her parents were Richard Griffin and Margaret Pinson) married Frank Francis Westmoreland on October 10, 1857. They had 12 children, Virgina Ellen Westmoreland married on 18 May 1884 Stokes Co. NC to William Walter Poole (they are my great great grandparents on my fathers side). According to death certificates they are buried in the same cemetery as Sarah and Frank, probably on the same family plot. I have had no luck in finding out Williams origins. Virginia died before him so there are no parents listed on the death certificate. Rumor has it through the family is that they came over from Ireland and change the name from O'Toole.

As far as if Bird Wall and Lucy Griffin are buried in the Griffin cemetery on McGee Road...I would say it is a good possibility since I have found that families are usually buried together. I do not have alot on the Griffin's other than a few generations prior to Sarah. I have more on the Westmoreland line.

Good luck in your search!

RE: Lanning at Austin Memorial Park
The stone to the left of the Lannings is Milbert O. and Fannie Mae Wyatt. I don't know if they're connected to the Lannings or not, but the stone is identical except for the inscription and the flowers are the same. I posted photos on those memorials as well.
