Bio and Links
If you know the location of any cemetery in Ashe Co., NC which does not already have a map on Findagrave, I would appreciate very much hearing from you.

I would like to transfer my non relative memorials to any relatives who are active and co-operative users of Find a Grave. Just ask. I make mistakes. Contact me with changes, corrections, etc.
My family surnames of interest are Walker, Starr, Sadler, Rumph, Jones, Moreland, Summers, Anderson, Shields, Thiesen, Couper & Traylor.
You are welcome to use my photos for any noncommercial use (ie post on your or other genealogy site tree- public or private).

Beginning in 2011, I have completed the photographing (often begun by others) of the following:

Ashe Co., NC: 337 Cemeteries

Avery Co., NC: 22 Cemeteries

Caldwell Co., NC: 27 Cemeteries

Watauga Co., NC: 92 Cemeteries

DO you happen to know anyone descended from her? We have photos of her older sister Lizzie Rominger Donnelly but none of her.

Thank you,

tombstone transcriptions
It may help folks in the future if you would add the following transcriptions to James Sapp and Nancy Jones Sapp's posting you have on find a grave. They are in the Samuel Sapp Family Cemetery in Ashe County, North Carolina. A friend of ours made a 5 1/2 hour round trip to help me with the transcription to prove relationship for DAR.
Their stones read: Nancy Sapp wife of James Sapp was born Apr 14 1821 and died Jan 20 1892 and James Sapp Seniar (Senior) was born Apr the 20 1820 died Apr the 21 1892 Age 72 Y and 1 day

Sherlocks Cousin
Charles Madison "Charlie" Pickler
Thank you for posting my cousin's obituary. It verifies what I have been trying to let people know - he is really buried in the Old Albemarle Cemetery and not Fairview as his death cert shows! A little 'history' - Charles is related to the country singer Kellie Pickler, also my distant cousin.

Thank you so much for the transfers! I really appreciate it a lot!!

Avery Winebarger#72934096
Chet, I'm confused as to Selda and James Winebarger's birthdates being long after their father's stated death date. Did their mother remarry or is Avery's death date mistaken? Thanks
