Eliza Vernon
Hi Jamie, thanks for posting all the Vernon family info and pictures on findagrave. I had been puzzling over the info that I had (incorrectly) which indicated that Nancy Jane Vernon and her sister, Eliza both died on the same date... then I say your picture of Eliza's stone which gave her date of death as Octover 28, 1904, not same date as Nancy Jane, who was one of my great grandparents. I may have inadvertantly been a part of making/perpetuating this error myself. Now it makes more sense to me. We were able to visit this cemetery in June and I had great difficulty in following the directions I found at the library in the cemetery books so I have added directions (and some gps numbers) to some of my direct relatives gravesites. Thanks again for the great pictures you took and posted. Are we cousins? Mary L Pierce-Hughes

Jamie, Yes, Nancy Wilkins-Vernon is my 4th great grandmother. Richard and Mehale Vernon's daughter, Nancy Jane Vernon b. 1844 is my 2nd great grandmother and her daughter Hettie-Lou Venon-Gibson my Great Grandmother. Do you have any information about Nancy Jane b. 1844? Did she marry a Harris later in life? Mary Lois Pierce-Hughes

RE: Vernon Cemetery in Ayersville
Yes Nancy Wilkens-Vernon and her husband, Richard Vernon Sr. are my 4th great grandparents. Their son Richard, Jr. and his wife, Mahala Martin-Vernon, were my 3rd great grandparents. Their daughter, Nancy Jane Vernon, was my 2nd great grandmother. Nancy's daughter, Hettie Vernon was my great grandmother. It was good to hear from you. At one time, years ago I was a member of that genealogy society and ended up not renewing. I'll have to take a look again at membership. As we live in Illinois we don't get to NC very often. I do still have a few Gibson cousins there. Many Thanks for letting me know the source of the info. Later, I may need a specific reference (title, date and pg. number) to use if I decide to add John Wilkins to the list of patriots tied to my DAR membership. (Unless the gravestones are still readable and I can get a picture of them.) Your distant cousin, Mary

Vernon Cemetery in Ayersville
Thanks so much for submitting all of the information on the Vernon Cemetery. A number of my relatives are buried there. Do the names and dates come from a list or are there still stones there? I would appreciate knowing if there is a list and what the source is for the list. Many thanks once again. Mary L Hughes (Illinois)

I have no info in my records for any Bullions, so the information must have been sent to me by another contributor.
Is it not correct?

She was Deborah Ziglar Lewis' great grandmother. The picture came from grandmother, Ada Stephens Carter and Caleb Carter's home. Look at James Haney Carter and you will see a picture of the whole family.

RE: Jackson Elliott
Okay, now I see them. Thanks for adding the great picture! Since you are related, and I am not, would you like a transfer of Jackson and Mary? the children are all added by others so I could not do that, but I will be happy to transfer them. Just let me know.
