RE: Bradbury
Hello and thank you for contacting me. I would like to verify my information about this entry and get back with you at a later date. However, I can tell you that the gravemarker next to Elmer Otto Bradbury marked "Sister to Elmer O Bradbury" is that of his half-sister who was stillborn to the parents of Thomas Edley Bradbury and Nora Annie Reese Bradbury, biological father and step-mother of Elmer Otto Bradbury. The date of birth/death date is still in question.

Furthermore, the information you have of the 1927 Infant Death is a totally different individual and is that of a daughter born to Elmer Otto Bradbury and Eunice Brackett Bradbury. This was their first-born child and was named Phyllis Cloe Bradbury, living abt 27 days, cause of death measles. Burial and gravesite is unknown. I'm afraid that I have mixed some information inaccurately in the records of these two infants and will have to take a second look to correct records in the near future, as time permits.

* Thomas Edley Bradbury is my grandfather, father of my father John Martin Bradbury
* Elmer Otto Bradbury is my uncle, brother to my father John Martin Bradbury
* Eunice Brackett Bradbury (Elmer's wife)is my aunt, sister to my mother Vera Viola Brackett Bradbury

Thus making children born of Elmer Otto and Eunice Brackett Bradbury my double-first cousins.

If you by chance have information on Cornelia Pitts Bradbury born abt 1882 (source 1910 US Census), first wife of Thomas Edley Bradbury and my biological grandmother. I would greatly appreciate your sharing with me.

Thanks again for contacting me. Hope to hear from you again soon. Patricia Anne Bradbury (birth name)

Thank you for being so gracious! I have been "working" that cemetery for the past several days, and I am hopeful that I can find Quincy Sr. and Martha Fite and get photos for you!

God bless!

Martha Mae Goodman Fite
Hi there!

I took a photo of Quincy Fite Jr (1925-1997) but I accidentally uploaded it to Quincy Fite Sr. (1897-1969) at West Lawn Cemetery in China Grove, NC. I have now deleted that photo from Sr. and uploaded it to Jr (which was not your request). I apologize for the error. You may want to re-request for Quincy Fite, Sr. His F.A.G. memorial is # 142425283. Please accept my sincerest apologies for the error!

Forgive my huge grammar errors. I am educated and have a degree as well. English is one of my strongest subjects, despite not appearing to be the case. I get so excited about genealogy that my mind moves faster than my fingers when I type!

Let me just add more thing...I read your bio...Please let me know if there is anyone I can help you research. I recently had surgery, so I cannot hunt graves yet. But, I am obsessed with genealogy. I will be glad to offer assistance with anyone you are researching. They do not have to be relatives., (Library of Congress) are great FREE resources

FamilySearch Library located in Salt Lake City is excellent as well.

Hint: eBay and Etsy are great places to look for ephemera. Many times you will find deeds, marriage certificates, photos, etc.. listed. Take a screenshot and use the information.

Best Regards,
Amanda Hunter

RE: transers
Hi Tracy,
I appreciate your hardwork, and taking the time to find her grave. I did not "sponsor" this page to take over it. I sponsored it so I could add more photos. Annie Mae Sisk's beginning is a mystery and will take many eyes to learn the truth.
Thank you again. The page is still yours if you want it. Again, in order to add more photos, I had to pay. So, I did.
Thank you again.

Best Regards,

RE: Annie Mae Freeman
I understand that. But, you did not ask how did I reached that conclusion...

Annie Mae Sisk apparently was not W.C. Pike's daughter. It is not something I want to disclose to my family, but she was not-it doesn't add up. Furthermore, she was not on a census record taken four years after her birth. But, she was on a census record of the "Sisks," with her mom, Julie Hulsey. She is a Sisk, which here prominent in the area of Georgia in which she was originally from. Her father is currently unknown, but I will provide more evidence. Her mother Hulsey, lived with "Sisks." I will provide a screenshot of the vital record data.

Her maiden name was Sisk! It was not Pike. Her mom and siblings were Pikes. Jack James delayed birth certificate has her as Sisk! She was not married prior to marrying my great-grandfather to Gordon Freeman.

Annie Mae Sisk Freeman
I submitted information regarding my great-grandmother, Annie Mae Sisk Freeman's memorial. Apparently is was denied because it conflicts with your data. I am her great-granddaughter and I am in contact with her son's wife. My data is correct. Your's apparently is the problem.
Best Regards,

RE: Purple Heart
you can log onto and click the enroll tab. When talking to one the workers there, I was told they need proof of receipt of the Purple Heart. There may be a number stamped on the back of the medal which would be proof. The Hall of Honor, as it is called, has pictures of recipients along with a back story, when available. It is hard to imagine the hard life these men and women lived while at war. I've read up a little on Merrill's Marauders's and I never knew Roy endured through that. Thank you so much for all the family info you have shared. Also I added a pic to my Dad's page, Bobby, that your Mom may enjoy. It is Grandad with his 3 sons. I love it!

RE: Roberts
Hi Tracy,
I am so sorry for not replying sooner. I'm new to this and actually just saw these messages. I would be happy to share photos of my Grandparents. I believe I met your mother when I was a child on one of our visits to NC. She may have been living with Grandma Ross at the time. I just remember there being train tracks directly behind the house.
I would like to ask you if you have any more info on Uncle Roy's Purple Heart. There is a museum near me for Purple Heart Recipients. I visited there recently and there is not a record of Roy. They rely totally on the public sharing the information of the recipients. I have the registration form and would like to send them to you so his story can be added to the museum. They are very happy to receive any information they can.

thomas h jordan grave listing
Hi, I noticed on your listing for Thomas H Jordan Jr's grave you were able to add "son of Thomas H Jordan and Nanny Davis. How were you able to do that, can I add a message like that to Thomas Sr.,s grave record. I know who his parents were, but can't do it as a link since I can't find their graves. thanks for any help.

RE: Memorial 117756584
Can't say for sure, but judging when I took the photo, I would say Section 11 or 12. I photographed those once this past summer. I have tried to go section by section. Mr. Curney, the mgr. at the cemetery, is very picky. You have to call ahead to request permission to photograph there which I have been careful to do!
