Kenneth Pickard (1923-2016) Durham NC
Hi RTerry, R.Michael here,
I visited the Memorial Page of my next door neighbor above, to see if someone had photographed his recent gravestone. Apparently the family had left an open-dated stone there while Mr. Pickard was still alive, which marker you photographed and left on his findagrave Memorial.
The family has had his death date engraved on his stone, so this afternoon, I took a photo and uploaded it to Mr. Pickard's Memorial page.
Since I can't remove other's photos, I'd ask that you remove yours in favor of the one I took today. Thanks for your many services.
Also, I noticed that one of your 4 photo requests is for another person in a different Durham NC cemetery: Marvin Carver (1921-2016), Lowes Grove Baptist Church Cemetery, Durham NC. I went there to try and fulfill your photo request.
The kind fellow who tends the cemetery attends the same Lowes Grove Baptist Church, knew Colonel Carver, showed me where the Colonel is buried next to his wife, and said he also knew one of his daughters. But the family has not had a gravestone placed there yet, so I was unable to fulfill your photo request. Sorry.
Best wishes,

Sallie Whitt #37950543 She died before listed daughter was born
What you are doing is WONDERFUL! Thank you so much for all your time and effort. The information posted on Find-a-grave has been so helpful to my family research! And, realizing that mistakes can be made, I wish to call your attention to Bettie Dunn Whitt #37950540. She was BORN in 1909. Her mother is listed as Sallie Whitt #37950543, who DIED in 1907. This relationship is quite impossible. Can you check your sources for this information and find out where the discrepancy lies? My interest is Sallie Jones and her children. She is the wife of my 2nd great grandmother's son.

LaBarge in Davis Cemetery SD
Robert, I neglected to mention Francis Sylvester LaBarge's burial location which is also Davis Cem. I believe he, Clarence and Eugene J. are children of Christie (Christopher) and Margaret Agnes Hurley. Why Francis and Eugene are buried in Davis Cem. I don't know, but they lived in Turner County SD along with their parents which shows in the 1900 and 1910 Turner SD Fed. Census. I looked up John LaBarge and Theresa Putrah and they are probably close relatives (nephew) to Christie and Margaret and they all lived in Turner County SD in the eaarly 1900's.

RE: Davis Cemetery LaBarge Families
Hi Robert,
Clarence James LaBarge is buried in St. Patrick's Cem. in Wakonda SD and Eugene J. is buried right there in Davis Cem. Hope this helps.

Davis Cemetery LaBarge Families
I believe that Francis S. & Eugene J. LaBarge are not part of the John & Tressa LaBarge family. They are part of the Christie & Margaret Hurley family which in the 1900 and 1910 Turner County SD Fed. Census show that family as having children Henry R, Kathryn E, Clarence J, Francis S, Eugene J, Myrtle E and Diana M. Thanks however for your great work in getting Find-A-Grave postings for the LaBarge families.

Best regards,

RE: Hurley Cemetery - Wormmood
You are correct, I am embarrased that I didn't catch that. Good job.

Added by Brad on Dec 29, 2016 11:12 AM

Just a note that in the Hurley Cemetery, Turner county SD, you have the surname of an entire family mispelled. You have them as Wormmood, they are correctly Wormwood.

Markers without dates
I totally get it- have taken over 7000 photos myself- nothing compared to what you have accomplished! If the marker I take has only one set of dates I only make one memorial UNLESS the DOB is in the 1800's. I was just trying to help out but obviously the area you are in is not as picky as mine. I posted 2-3 when I first started and was called out immediately to remove I now take thousands of photos but I will not post unless I can verify the DOD to add to it.

Thank you again for ALL that you do to preserve history and family info!!!

I try to go by the Find a Grave FAQ:
Is it acceptable to add a memorial for someone who is still living?
Please try to avoid it. In general, we do not encourage adding memorials for individuals who are still living. We do realize, however, that when transcribing a cemetery, it is not always possible to determine if the person is living or not. Memorials for individuals who are alive will be removed when requested (the exception being for 'famous' individuals who already have a burial location in place). You are always welcome to create a 'pre-need' memorial for yourself, if you would like, provided that you have a pre-need headstone already in place in a cemetery. Given these exceptions, a memorial created after death will be preferred over a pre-need memorial.

Hi there, YES, Richard Charles Penland. He lived 2 days. I wasn't sure where he was buried. His parents are Glenn and Anne Penland. I just sent you an edit for you to connect them. Thank you so much for maintaining these memorials.

Eva Jane Blundell Rundell, Find A Grave Memorial# 40295898 has a death date of: 1958. Your grave stone shows 1928. That is also in agreement with:
South Dakota Death Index, 1905 - 1955
Just trying to be helpful.

All the siblings of the Montague clan have passed on and all the children (my wife's generation) have no clue there the cemetery is. If I find any information, I will let you know.

William and Viola Pearson
I'm the one doing Ellen Manuel's edits while she is ill.

The death locations of Hurdle Mills, Person County, NC that you submitted for Mr. and Mrs. Pearson are incorrect from what I found. Mr. Pearson's obit states he passed away at Carillon Assisted Living in Hillsborough. Mrs. Pearson's death index lists Orange County, with no city/town listed. I'll accept your edits and then change the locations. If you have another source please forward.
Thank you :)

RE: Re: Yancey Bailey
You're welcome, Robert. A friend took me cemetery hunting Sunday afternoon. We had to go in on a 4 wheel drive vehicle. I'm sure there were more graves there but no markers. The fence was partially fallen down and looked as if someone had stolen part it. It's in the same area of the county as the Montague Cemetery.

RE: We share a memorial :0)
Charles is a mystery, for sure. Being so new to searching, I am still finding sites. I will definitely check this one out.

You seem like a good person to ask. My g-grandad was an orphan. His mom died in 1909, when he was 10. His brothers and sister were adopted out close to home, but he was sent to live in an orphanage in Winston-Salem. I have emailed the Home, but haven't gotten a response yet.

All of my research, all records that I have seen, I have not been able to find a father for any of these kids. My g-grandad or his siblings. I have seen two birth records, for his baby brother and younger sister, each have a "-" through father. The last name seems to have been passed down from the mother's side of the family. My g-grandad was named after HIS grandad.

It's a fascinating story, but I am confused as to how a young woman could have had 5-6 kids without being married or listing a father. My g-g-grandmother's father passed away the year she was born, so her mom was left to raise 6 young kids on her own as well. This is the late 1800's, near the mountains of NC. Another question we can't figure out is why my g-grandfather would be sent to an orphanage halfway across the state, when the others were adopted out close to home, to farm if nothing else.

I have completely unloaded this on you like you have all the answers. Any suggestions or advice on where I can look to get some insight?

I have gone as far as will go, familysearch only gives me so much. I've looked through the state archives.

I fear I may just have to live with these questions.

Thanks again, I'll look through the cemetery website for help with Charles. The pastor is getting some of the older members of the church involved, they have some of the older record books. It's very interesting.

RE: We share a memorial :0)
Thank you for responding. As far as grandma, either way, doesn't matter. As long as she is on here.
Since I'm new to the site, if I have information on any family members, other than the bio shown, how do I edit or add? Do I get in touch with the person that listed them?

My husband worked at Maplewood. It's an awesome cemetery. My great-uncle, grandma's baby brother is buried there. I believe you also posted his I was linking g-ma's brothers and sisters to their parents and came across it.

McMannen Cemetery is where my granddaddy's brother was buried in 1924. He was 6, died of acute tonsillitis. My daughter and I have combed that place twice looking for him. We've even enlisted the pastor and church secretary for help. We've looked at the old burial records, but there is no mention of him. Pop says it was a small, flat, bronze marker. I'm a little concerned it may have been sucked up by the earth by now. His name is Charles Taylor Choplin, born 1918, died 1924, 6 yrs old. Pop say he thinks this is what was on the plaque.

You wouldn't happen to anything about the Roberts family of Butner, would you? The Roberts' cemetery was off of Range Rd., but when Camp Butner moved in and bought the land, some of the graves were moved.

I appreciate all of your help and insight.
