Bio Photo We are Matthew and Chrissy Myers. We have been into old stones and cemeteries for years, and got back on the site a while ago. We are working on a project to do Military and Civil War graves in the NC area mostly and love taking road trips and have discovered a few old cemeteries and added them on here. I have been in the military for 19 years.

PHOTOS - We will add better photos if stone was not cleaned or clear for clear photo, Or does not take the whole stone, or it needs a close up to read the info. Also if the pic is discolored.

I am happy to transfer grave memorials outside my family to family members, and I welcome corrections and additions. Just use the edit tab to send your request.

Thanks for transferring my grandmother's memorial to me. I have wanted to get down there and take pictures myself but just haven't had the time. It's great that you guys are doing this.

Whitley/Barnes/Phillips cemetery
Hello Matthew & Chrissy. Thanks to you both for all your efforts for Find-A-Grave!
I have been unsuccessful in finding the physical location of this cemetery. Find-A-Grave location describes it at 2 SR's (State roads) in Clayton, NC, but even with the help of an employee at the Johnston Co. Heritage center, we just could not pinpoint the location.
My great grandparents, Dixon and Edna Phillips, are buried there. It is apparently a very small likely overgrown cemetery and I fear possibly plowed under. I hope that isn't the case.

I live out of state, but I visit the Raleigh area a couple of times ea year.

If you can give any advice on how to locate this cemetery I would be grateful!

The photo for Find A Grave Memorial# 103564965 was added twice. Thought you would like to remove the copy. Thanks again for all the photos you both add to Find A Grave.

Hi there, Would you kindly consider deleting a photo that you added to #3273063? It's the wrong Cofield. I've also asked Find A Grave to do the same and am sending this note to cover all bases. Thanks so much, Mary Ann

Skidmore Memorials - First Presbyterian Church Columbarium
Hello Matthew & Chrissy!

Thank you so much for the work you do on FindAGrave, most especially with Military memorials.

I was contacted, today, and was informed that there was another memorial created for my cousin, Cynthia Inez Brown Skidmore. At the time I created her memorial, I did not know where her remains/cremains were placed, as it was not mentioned in the obit. I had also created memorials, in the same matter, burial location unknown, for her husband, the Col. Lloyd James Skidmore Jr, and their son, Lloyd James Skidmore III.

I would like to request, and hope you will oblige, that you add the photos from the memorials you created to the ones I created and allow me to continue to maintain the original memorials and remove the ones you created. I would so appreciate it.

Your Memorials:
Cynthia Inez Brown Skidmore - 138855673
Col. Lloyd James Skidmore Jr - 138855408
Lloyd James Skidmore III - 138854958

Thank you for your kind consideration.

Best Regards,
Sarah Locklin Taylor
