RE: Location of Graves
I see you talked to Jay, he has the Highland cemetery book. He is a good guy.

Been doing a lot of researching on my dads side which is from NC. Hyde, Guilfred, and Orange I think. The O'Neal's and Midgette, and Caplinger. I want to visit NC but have never made it yet. Will get with you about it whenever I make it down there

RE: Location of Graves
There are a Clinton County and Highland County cemetery books out there. I know who has a Highland book but I heard an older gentleman has the Clinton which has a listing of who is buried in each cemetery created maybe 1970's but the Pleasant Hill is not big enough for a anything for listing where each person is buried. It is not that big but I would say it would take a little over an hour to walk through all of them. It is just north of Leesburg less than 1/4 mile on west side of 62. Now for the others around there I have been in most but only have photo Achor cemetery,Grove-geff cemetery, Martinsville IOOF cemetery, and Centerville Cemetery which I did a lot of the real old stones but not the other.
let me know when you decide to come in

RE: Locating Graves
I hope you have a good trip, Phyllis. My guess is that, in all except the largest cemeteries (maybe Sugar Grove Cemetery and Hillsboro Cemetery?) it will be, as you suspect, necessary to look stone-by-stone. But my first-hand knowledge of any of those Highland/Clinton cemeteries is very distant, because I was last there in 1963-64 on a visit similar to yours except that I came over from Indiana. I notice a couple of messages on your profile page from ejeCarman in which he says I'm his friend and that we've been working together, and maybe that gave you the impression I was in Ohio, but I live in New York State. It's true that he and I are friends and have worked together on Find A Grave, but what happened was that I used the McBrides' cemetery book to create memorials for people buried in Highland County, and then he took tombstone photos and uploaded them to those memorials. It's one of those happy stories of people working together on F.A.G. Sugar Grove and Hillsboro might at least have offices with cemetery maps (or maybe you could try to get them to send you maps before you ever leave NC. You'll want to check the F.A.G. memorials for the people you're looking for, of course, so you can make note of Sec, Lot, Grave numbers if available. Also, if there is no office for a cemetery, there might be markers in the cemetery saying, "Section A," etc., that could save your time when you're looking for the particular tombstones. And if you take print-outs of the tombstone photos, you might recognize a stone by its shape long before you get close enough to read the inscription. Enjoy your trip! -- Jay

RE: Nannie S. Wright
I have a lot more photos for this cemetery I am still loading. I have added some more Wright's. I take any photos of a Wright because of my friend Jay Wright. He is a long distant relative of mine.

RE: Nannie S. Wright
This was one that was vanderlized but someone went and did some good work fixing and replanting as you would call it tombstones that were knocked over or broken in two.
I work with a Jay Wright with cemeteries in this area. We are finishing up Highland Cemetery which is only a couple miles away. He also has done some info and F.A.G. here also.
I just started working on this cemetery which is a big one.
