|Bio and Links|
My goals with FAG are modest. I never expect to or want to manage thousands of entries. My goal is to focus primarily on graves in Buncombe, Madison, and Polk Counties of NC. For me, FAG is a project that involves connecting and documenting as much information as possible to make each memorial "personal" and one that connects the threads of a much larger family and community history.|
I try to be thorough about documenting the burials of those with unmarked graves (i.e.- no headstones) by indicating in the bio section that no marker is present and note any source of my information that the person is buried there. I sincerely ask and hope? that others do the same. This reduces confusion and potential wasted trips to any cemetery to search for specific grave markers.
I salute those who have worked so hard to document thousands of graves in far flung cemeteries; providing starting points for making family connections.
I encourage everyone and especially those with thousands of entries to continue their own research by linking parents to children and adding memorial photos. This work is time consuming and not "easily countable" as is "total number" of memorials; but significantly enhances the overall value of the memorial.
I was born in Asheville and grew up in the "North Buncombe" area that borders Madison County NC. My family has been in the North Buncombe / Madison County area since abt 1790.
My paternal side of the family (i.e.
Black / Garrison / Guthrie / Watts)
had a very strong oral history tradition.
Further down the paternal side of my family last names include:
-Biffle and Bridges
-Eller and Fox
-Garland, Goettge (now Ketchey)
-Henkel and Hunter
-Massey and Penland
-Revis and Roberts,
-Terry and Wilson
-Eschmann (now Ashman) and Dentzer
The maternal side of my family includes the last names of
Parts of my maternal side have been more difficult to track to before 1850 due to several illegitimate births and other social economic factors.

|Shawn Riley||Joel Roberts|
Hi. I just wanted to let you know there is a headstone for Joel Roberts in the Jupiter Cemetery. It's lying on the ground broken in half not far from where his wife is buried. I uploaded a picture of it on his memorial.
|Clyde Roberson||Know My Relatives? Roberson|
Virtually all of my Buncombe county relatives have passed, but my family was large and many lived in Asheville and Rutherfordton, and other areas. The high school even bears our name. Does anyone remember the Roberson family? Also on the maternal side Martin is the surname that I know.

Thanks for the info from the Flat Creek Records. I plan to pull some of the best information and add it to his bio soon. I feel I can't just copy the information right into the bio in case there is a copyright for which I'm unaware. Those records are a great resource and there's quite a few references to Buckners and also Burrells in it - thanks again !
|Cheryl & Richard Justice||RE: Jupiter Cemetery|

Hi Janice, Thank you for doing all the links I asked for. When you are working so hard on a project like that it means a lot.
Blessings to you and yours now and throughout the holidays.
|Double L||Flem Moss|
Thanks for information. Flem was the son of my gg-grandmother Minerva, by her first marriage. The death certificate has his last name as Morse, should be Moss. I see the doctor who signed the death certificate, was the doctor who delivered me.
Happy Thanksgiving, so much to be thankful for.
