|Bio and Links|
We live in the small town of Cleveland, NC, of western Rowan County, with easy access to Salisbury of Rowan Co., Statesville and other towns of Iredell County, Mocksville area in Davie Co. and most within 20 miles of us. Several cemeteries are within 5 miles of home including a few in our town.|
As an active member and volunteer at Third Creek Presbyterian Church, Cleveland, which maintains a pre-Revolutionary War cemetery as part of its grounds, I'm privileged to help update the very detailed records, totaling over 650 gravestones we can see. We are willing to look up information on both graves we can photograph and those we know are recorded but cannot be seen.
This area is full of historical cemeteries, some of which are still in use. Some are out-of-the-way and others are not. This means being smart with my trips to take photographs in them. Unfortunately, some requests are guesses which can lead to area volunteers wasting fuel and time trying to fill a request. I do my homework and double check the validity in the county cemetery records at our great Rowan County Library History room just to keep that from happening.
Family names being researched for my husband's side are Steele, Chambers, Graham, Knox, Brandon, Cowan, Wilson, Luckey, Locke. My family is Hutcheson, Ellis, Launius/Lanius, Reynolds, Potts, Durham, Chaffin, Dudley, Chiles, Smith, and Johnson.
I will gladly transfer memorials if they are not our family. Please ask for them. And feel welcome to use my memorial photos for genealogical purposes. Just give me credit.

Your right. I had the death date wrong but I think that page has the birth date wrong. I will add the photos. For some reason the system is not letting me add photos right now. I don't know why. It acts like it's locked up. I hate that. Thanks
|Phillip Plotz, M.D.||More Launius's in Westview|
I found two more:
Emma McBride Launius 6/1/1860-12/20/1946
John S Launius 12/20/1860-2/28/1984
They have a very nice monument. If you are interested, can you make pages and send a photo request so I can upload the photos? Thanks
|Christopher Veltmann||RE: James Archibald-Bethany Presbyterian, Iredell Co., NC|
Yes Joy, that would be very nice of you. Thanks Christopher

Thank you for this transfer. She was my dad's first cousin and I am glad to have found her and get her linked with her parents in Alabama.
Thank You, for the transfers!
