Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am the family historian and have created family treasures by which my family can track our roots. I am currently in the 2nd generation and have traced our family back to 1808. I am constantly looking for more information to add to our family tree.

If anyone in the Patterson or Witherspoon Lines would like to join me in researching our family roots, get in touch with me via I would be more than happy to collaborate to get our family tree going.

RE: Joseph Witherspoon Info
BJ, I have changed the birthdate as requested and I am more than happy to turn management over to any family members that request the turnover. I am going to your page right now and find your Find A Grave number and then will transfer to you. To do so, all I need is your Find A Grave contributor number and then on Joseph's page there appears to me a "tranfer management" link, which I can click on, place your number as the new manager and then it should transfer over; if it does not, please let me know.

RE: Followup
You can transfer any back to me if you want to;however, I bet you are related somehow!

RE: Correct the following info
I have transferred my 4 Witherspoon memorials. Let me know if you are also related to anyone else buried there. I have no contact info relating to this cemetery. Unfortunately, it appears to be abandoned- like many I find. Weeds were waist high and lots of graves were sunken and some markers were falling over. It did not appear that anyone had been there in years. If you ever plan to try to visit, I believe I can give you very precise directions that will guarantee you will find it.

RE: Correct the following info
Barbara- Given that this is your family, why don't I just transfer my Witherspoon memorials to you. You can then make these and other changes and take care of them going forward.
My goal is to transfer all of my non family memorials to someone in that family.
Let me know if it is ok to transfer.

RE: Tombstone
Barbara- Thank you for your kind note. I am an avid genealogist and love hiking around the NC mountains so I combined the 2 and spend time finding and photographing cemeteries in Caldwell, Watauga, Avery, and Ashe Counties. I often see unnamed cemeteries on my TOPO map and then use the GPS coordinates to go searching. Buffalo Cemetery was just off the road on a little hill and not too hard to find. I also then try to connect up as many of the people buried in a cemetery in hopes it will help others like you looking for their family.
Many people have done the same for me and I enjoy trying to repay the favors!
Good luck with your family research!
