RE: Newsum Cemetery off Spainhour Mill Road
good to hear you. I hope all is going well for you. since my brother used the NEWSUM spelling on the Thos. Turner (Newsom) family group, I don't see why it would not be appropriate to continue the plan you have to 're-organize/transfer thomas' clan into a NEWSUM CEMETERY. since mrs. Hendricks (so I understand)has been gracious enough to buy a marker (NEWSOME)for the newsom & hendricks the end of greenmeadow, it only makes sense at this point to call that group NEWSOME and dispose of the Hendrix name/wording associated with the graveyard as she herself did. I still have no clue as to how the error of merging took place, but at this point. Alma Buster is/was in total agreement for some correction to take place when I contacted alma last year about it. I'm sure all the creators, maintainers, picture contributors,( i.e me, KONWAY, Alma Buster, KR Newsom, etc.)would be thrilled to have somebody figure out how to fix it (including copy-paste any photos) so that it's not totally confusing to people like it once was. you know, "is there 1....or are there 2....cemeteries?" additionally, with regards to the 'Estab. 1727" inscription on mrs. hendrick's new marker......can't imagine where that date came from. nobody seems to have a burial inventory record and it appears from the markers that JC II's burial in 1840 was the first burial in there. deed searches appear to show that his son, JC III & wife Katherine probably owned this cemetery land at 1840. kinda hard to nail that down with the 'old hickory tree' rotted down and the 'creek branches' drying up over time..hehe Anyway, thanx for your help. patti

To you, Miranda, and others who worked, so others could follow what you have provided.

I have that Jane was a CARDWELL born 1807, North Carolina, USA, more than likely in Stokes County, and that she married your John Griffin.

Much Appreciation,

Waymon Griffin

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.

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!

RE: Mary Etta Hart Hatfield Memorial #63149167
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.
