Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born and raised in Western North Carolina. I grew up listening to my grandparents sing in Church and telling stories of their growing up years. They instilled in me a love of family and home. My husband and I have deep roots in these mountains that we both love. We have both been fascinated by genealogy and love uncovering new links to our past and answering questions about why we are who we are. I am new to this group, but hope to contribute as much as possible.

Hello Christy,
Let me express my sympathy for your loss. I lost my Mother and Son this past years. It is always hard to lose a loved one.
I entered into find a Grave all the graves from this section in the Cemetery two years ago. A friend of mine is buried in the same section. The memorial wasn't transferred to me. I created the original. But I always prefer a memorial to belong to the family.
Am glad to see you wrote a biography. I am very behind. After the loss of my son in October I just stopped working with Find A Grave until recently.
If there is any way I can help, just let me know. I'll transfer tonight.
For future reference, it is always faster to use the transfer management or edit button on the top right corner of the memorial. And by the Find A grave rules you can request any family members managed by others up to four generations.
Hope you can find other family members.

RE: Bobby Hill Cemetary
Christy: Who did you live with on Silvermine, I thought I knew most of the families there. Did you know Candace & Grady Mashburn? Homer was just like my brother because as you probably knew he was an alcoholic & daddy brought him to Robbinsville several years ago & we had to "watch" him the best that we could. He passed away last year. Daddy passed away 10 yrs ago & I always said that Homer is what I inherited. He lived with me sometimes until he could get straightened up again. Mack is so good to me, Robert I don't see much but he is also good to me. Paul was always quiet, he passed away with cancer several years ago. Daddy was the oldest so he always petted the other brothers & they all got along good. I miss them terribly. Hope you get to Bobby Hill. Take care. Betty

RE: Bobby Hill Cemetary
Hi Christy:
Did you know my dad, Kenneth Taylor from Silvermine? Here are copied directions from Franklin, if you are coming up from the side of the Nantahala go to the rd in front of Nantahala School & follow the directions from there, I think that it is called Winding stairs road, too. They said that the old road from the head of Silvermine ran into the Bobby Hill Rd, It is also in Macon Co instead of Swain Co if you look it up on the internet.
Directions: From Hardee's in Franklin, take 64E. approximately one mile. Exit right onto the 64W bypass. Stay on this road about six or
seven miles. Turn right onto Old 64 highway, go past Loafer's Glory gas station, turn left onto Wayah Rd. Follow Wayah Rd. approximately
18 1/2 miles to Nantahala. There will be a gas station (Bateman's) on the left. From Bateman's, go about five miles to Windingstairs Rd.,(Nantahala School) on the right. Follow Windingstairs Rd. to Briartown Church Rd. Follow Briartown to Partridge Creek Rd. Turn left, go to Shields Creek Rd. There is a mailbox #335 on the right. Make a very sharp right turn and follow steep gravel road to cemetery. There was a small wooden sign that says Bobby Hill on it.
