Bio and Links
Bio Photo A seed of interest in genealogy was planted by my mother's eldest brother, Joel Pinkney McConnell. Uncle JP was one of those people who always carried a good story around in his back pocket. But his love for weaving colorful tales was matched, if not exceeded, by a love of family history.
Uncle JP studied the McConnells for many years. And his research culminated in a self-published book entitled "The McConnell Families of Davidson's Creek Settlement, Iredell County, North Carolina 1748 - 1982". He signed a copy of his book and presented it to me on December 26, 1983.
So that seed of interest has been germinating for quite some time.
On a whim, I visited the website on February 28, 2012. I plugged in a couple of names and was amazed at the information on the screen. And so it began.
My family includes Hendersons, Honeycutts, McConnells and Sigmons.

Memorial #126743024
You photographed the grave of John T. McCraven. Could you add that photo to the grave of his wife who is linked to him?

Re: Sam Houston in Oak Hill
The dates were incorrect, the death date was for someone else buried elsewhere. I sent in edits when I uploaded the picture and found the death certificate.

Hi - Would you mind adding the picture that you took of the grave of John McCraven Find A Grave Memorial# 126743024 to the memorial that I created for his wife Bertha Find A Grave Memorial# 131233733 as they share a grave marker. Thanks for your help!

Kerns in Laruel Hill Cemetery
I fulfilled your photo requests for Herbert & Natalie Kerns and I added their son, Rev. Paul, who was also listed on the monument. I'd be happy to transfer his memorial to you if you'd like. Just let me know.

I have a bit of an odd question for you, though. My dad used to talk about a man he knew from many years ago in Saco he called "Pop Kerns". I never knew his first name and I was wondering if he was one of your Kerns folk (perhaps Herbert?). I have an old photo of 'Pop' and would be happy to add it to a memorial or send it along if he is someone you know.

Best regards,
~Connie G.

I easily found the grave. Notice surname spelling. Am assuming couple buried beside JW are his parents, no other burial with same surname nearby.
