|Bio and Links|
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 ancestry.com 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.

You photographed the grave of John T. McCraven. Could you add that photo to the grave of his wife who is linked to him?
|Holly Bonorden Jentsch||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!

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.

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