I am a native of western NC, a retired educator, book and animal lover, gardener, collector of vintage children's books, artist, photographer, and proudly addicted to genealogical research. |
"If you want to understand today, you have to search yesterday." - Pearl S. Buck
Our lineage includes the following family names, listed alphabetically: Black, Blount, Brickey, Brooke, Burnet, Cable, Caffee, Carringer, Chapman, Colt, Crisp, Dennis, Dewey, Fauntleroy, Folger, Fye, Gaylord, Gordon, Hardy, Henderson, Hickman, Hoffman (or Hoffmann), Hogle, Hogue, Hoyne, Irish, Jenkins, Knott, Kreider, Leslie, Lovin (or Loving), Lull, Lynd, MacDonald, Macy, McCallum, McClure, McCray, Mease, Messer, Mosteller, Odom, Owenby, Peale, Penland, Phelps, Quinn, Robbins, Rogers, Schnebly, Snow, Staughton, Stuman, Swem, Temple, Williamson, and Wright.
I don't mind photographs I have posted here at FAG showing up at other genealogical locations such as Ancestry, but I do ask that they be properly cited. Thank you.
Many, many thanks to my fellow Gravers who have stopped by the memorials for my parents, my husband's parents, and any other members of our family and left flowers and notes. You are wonderful people!
"A people which takes no pride in noble achievements of remote ancestors will never achieve anything to be remembered by remote descendents." _McCauley
"Photographs don't discriminate between the living and the dead. In the fragments of time and shards of light that compose them, everyone is equal. Now you see us; now you don't. It doesn't matter whether you look through a camera lens and press the shutter. It doesn't even matter whether you open your eyes or close them. The pictures are always there. And so are the people in them." - Robert Goddard, one of my favorite authors.

Hi! There's nobody like a relative or friend to take care of these memorials! Have transferred him to you, as we are not related nor did we even know this gentleman. We trust you will be a better person to add information, than we are!
|Forever Pop||So sweet Brenda|
I try to read all the memorials and leave behind something of significance if I can. Your friend's pictures had a warmth about them and I suddenly felt close....I also appreciate you Brenda for your visits to my dad and uncle's pages- I see your name all the time and I feel like I know you as it is always touching to see a familiar name that paid their respects. I'm taking each day as it comes, some days just seem unbearable but as I read so many touching memorials it exemplifies that life goes on while we still grieve. It never leaves us. Well thank you so much Brenda for thinking of me....and my beloved father and uncle. I will keep you close...

Hi Brenda, Thank You for leaving a token for my son Andrew. Don't you just love that name for a boy? I saw where you said your son was named Andrew. Your friend Diana.
|Legsie11||RE: Dorothy Ann H. Black|
lt was a pleasure to visit Dottie so no need to thank me. She truly was a very beautiful woman.
Thank you for your kind message...which if you had'nt sent, l would have missed Dottie's birthday but thanks to you l've been able to pay my respects to her and her very lucky husband on her special day.
And what a coincidence...l was born and still live in Coventry, Warwickshire!
Could l please add you as a friend? lt would make it easier to visit dear Dottie.

|Forever Pop||Token of thanks|
Sweet lady, thank you for paying your respects to my dad with your token, it was so appreciated. Sincerely, Carla
|Jenny E.||Charlotte Philippi memorial|
Hope you are well!? I just saw the memorial that you created for Charlotte and for Ward also! I was wondering where you got your information about Charlotte. I have been wondering about where her final resting place might be. She is not listed in the Spring Grove records.
Also for Ward - His cousin Esther Philippi Schwaegerle wrote me when he passed. She told me that his ashes were scattered "out at sea" - per his wishes.
