Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was raised in Montgomery County NC, Onvil, Thickety Creek and have lived here all my life except two years away in the US Army, most of that in Fort Devens Mass. I married Teresa Dawkins from Candor, 7 miles away, in 1971, still married with two children and four grandchildren. I have been involved in genealogy research for around twenty years. My main interests are Haywood, Blake, Yarbrough, Jenkins, Greene, Poole, Dawkins, Parsons, Lamonds, Thompson and whatever else pops up. There are a lot of cemeteries in Montgomery County, some not yet posted and I hope I can post them on find-a-grave as I find them so it will help others find their ancestors. Anyone is welcome to use my pics, just give me a "thank you" and I will do the same if I use yours. Ancestry is fun!

RE: 84572844
Hi Jerry,

I see should tell the other party that they have the wrong cemetery.

Thanks for the information,

Hello Jerry, It appears that you duplicated the above memorial which predated yours by several months. Any particular reason? He is a distant relative of mine, is he yours also?

Pictures of Thomas Roper Cemetery
Thank You!, Thank You!, Thank You!.
It was really nice of you to take those pictures!
Please tell me a little about your adventure to the cemetery:
Were my directions good?
Were there any signs of the old plantation?
Do you think there are other unmarked graves?
Did you take other pictures along the way?
Anything at all will be interesting to me, after all, Thomas and Hannah are my GGG Grandparents.

Thanks Again,

RE: Poole
Well it sounds like up line we are distant cousins.
1810 Montgomery Co. NC names men:
Henry Pool
Colwell Pool
Isham Pool
Samuel Pool

We theorize the following: Henry was our Pettypool ancestor who first married Jenny Green 1788 in VA and they migrated to Montgomery Co. about 1798. Not certain if Jenny made it to NC.
Since Colwell is in close proximity, we think he was Henry and Jenny's. Jenny passed away and Henry married Margaret Tarbutton of Richmond Co. NC. They had about half of their children in Montgomery Co. and then migrated to Hall Co. GA.
Isham for certain was Henry's brother, as he named a son Isham...
Then Samuel is a mystery but very close in age to Henry so may have been a brother, nephew or cousin making the trip from Lunenburg Co. VA
I was told the Petty was dropped around 1800 time period. The reasons were ease of spelling for men were illiterate in those days and spelled it as it sounded that's why such messed up spellings.

Still see P'Pool and P.Pool in MO where our line settled. I saw the Pettypool name still used in Illinois.
Colwell is a family name for Mary Colwell Pettypool who was Henry's Grandmother. Very well to do so I have read...Samuel is another name that bears reflection for it was the English Forefather of the 1st William Pettypool who came to York Co. VA... Its very likely your Poole line and ours are connected. In the UK it was Pettipoole. It is thought by many that it was anglo spelling for Pettit-Pool,those living by small ponds... which was Norman French Hougenots that left France for England because they desired a Protestant approach rather then a Roman Catholic approach. At any rate this is very interesting and appreciate the correspondence. C.M.

Hi Jerry, I saw your note speaking about Pettypools P.Pool's, Pools, Pooles...

I was wondering what your connection was and or the 2nd party you spoke of.

I have been researching our Pettypool line from England into US and ran into your correspondence.

Would enjoy a chat if you have time. Curt
