RE: Mary Bailey birth date?
According to my source as i mentioned earlier Cratus Dilbert Bailey is his correct name, not Dilbert Cratus. I can see that the marker reads Dilbert Cratus. Dr Lloyd Bailey has done extensive reaserch on the Bailey family and has done so all his young and adult life. He has published six volumes of The Heritage Of The Toe River Valley, Aver, Mitchell and Yancey County N C. I have found his work to be very reliable.

Thanks again
Melvin Almond

Would like to hear from you again

RE: Mary Bailey birth date?
Sorry. I misread my source. Mary is the second born of James Wesley Bailey and Susannah ( Sooky) Luceba Hampton Bailey also the parents of Isaac Nelson Bailey, the father of Cartus Dilbert Bailey. My source is The Heritage Of The Toe River Valley , Avery, Mitchell and Yancey County N C , Volume 3 , 2001, By Dr Lloyd Richard Bailey. Sr. Editor.

I will make the corrections. Thanks for your efforts.

I did not add the spouses to Silas Elbert Buckner. You will have to get those changed from Finetta Buckner's Memorial manager. Thank you

Rather than the son...The age of Catherine is 1730 and certainly not his Mother

Thanks for the heads up about the dup. I contacted them to remove, but they probably will not. Their are many who will not. Thanks again, regards.

No sir, can't say that I have run across a Guy Briggs or a Gray Briggs. If I do, however, you will be the first to know!

That would be great to know more about his family, sir! I've just been doing research on local Confederate vets and compiling a list, so any extra info always helps! Thanks for your work on here.

RE: Ezekiel Hampton Sr, 25238132
I surveyed Old Garland myself in 2005. Bridget is there, #112.

Anything I have ever read says that Ezekiel Sr's burial place is unknown. The memorial plaque in John W Bailey was likely placed there because Ezdekiel JR is there, and it's a cemetery close to where Senior lived.

But casual visitors glance at the plaque and assume that Senior is there. I still believe that he was buried atop some hill on his property, marked only by a rock or a wooden cross, now lost to the forest.

My line is through Senior's daughter Dorothy, who married James Mashburn. Their burial sites are also unknown, probably in McDowell County, down the escarpment from Little Switzerland.

Andrew Hampton
"Ezekiel Hampton, Sr. has been thought to be son of the Revolutionary War Patriot, Col. Andrew Hampton, buried in Rutherfordton, Rutherford County, N.C. Evidence now suggests Ezekiel was the son of that Andrew's cousin Andrew who lived in Granville County, then moved to Georgia. Granville Co. is on the far northern border with Virginia, while Tryon/Rutherford Co. is in the far south-western border with SC."
This issue is not going away anytime soon, as evidenced by some of the family trees on The "Hulet MacDaniel Baker and Winona Fancion Wood" Tree, is but one of those examples.
The owner of that tree lists Andrew from Granville Co. as the father, then goes on to state that Ezekiel was the son of both Sarah Kuykendall and Catherine Hyder. She lists 21 children for Catherine and 3 for Sarah, with Ezekiel being listed twice. Doesn't sound like an exploration that I will be going on anytime soon.

RE: Ezekiel Hampton, Sr
You are suggesting that he be listed as cremated, ashes scattered, body donated etc.? That is not the equivalent of a CENOTAPH. His remains are elsewhere, so the cenotaph is the only correct choice. If that is not a logical selection for you, then I can make it happen on my own. It's really not a complicated procedure to follow through with and it's the right thing to do.

RE: Ezekiel Hampton Sr, 25238132
Well, there is a rule against "Unknown" burials after a certain amount of time. Cenotaph would be ideal, but I do not know how to do it. It is doable, of course. I gather that you are also a direct descendant?

Hello Roger,
Thank you for your response to this issue concerning the disposition of Ezekiel's remains. The memorial marker that was placed in the James W. Bailey Cemetery is a commemorative marker, not a grave marker, even though the VA record seems to be disrupting this fact. If you intend to record this as an Unknown burial in the memorial that you maintain, your memorial could be deleted after 30 days have elapsed. In order to preserve this memorial, you would need to send a request to the Edit Dept. to have the memorial transformed into a "cenotaph." Here are the instructions to proceed with such a request:
A cenotaph is a tomb or a monument erected in honor of a person or group of persons whose remains are buried elsewhere. It can also be the initial marker for a person who has since been interred elsewhere.
To add a cenotaph, create a memorial just like any other. Then email with a link to the memorial and a message to mark it as a cenotaph.
My time has been consumed as of late, with utterly irresponsible duplication of memorials and unwavering contributors that have placed the remains of the deceased in the wrong cemetery. If I have directed any disrespect toward you in this undertaking, then I am most apologetic for any harm that I may have caused.

Here is Gwen Bodford's survey of James W Bailey cem. I have been there as well.

Please see the note about Ezekiel Sr at the bottom.
His resting place is unknown, most likely atop some hill along Jacks Creek. He died over 200 years ago, after all.

RE: Ezekiel Hampton Sr. 25238132
No one knows where the man is buried, so please change the site to Unknown. He is not at Bailey Hill. Thanks!

Your memorial for Ezekiel that you placed in the wrong cemetery is a violation of the Find A Grave guidelines. Information has been provided to you concerning this erroneous memorial, yet you defy the facts in this case. Your memorial has already been reported to the Administrator of this site. Ezekiel was not interred in either one of those Bailey cemeteries.

Ezekiel was my direct ancestor. I have been to Bailey Hill several times and never saw that monument. Also, genealogist Gwen Bodford of Burnsville completed her comprehensive survey of Bailey Hill after the monument was laid in 1997; it is not on her list:

I do not know where the photo on the memorial was taken, but it was not in Bailey Hill. The original creator made a massive number of errors, that are slowly being corrected. Please change the burial site to unknown, so folks won't spend hours searching for the grave. Thanks.
