Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a retired elementary school teacher and administrator. I am very passionate about genealogy and the history of Western North Carolina and Blount/Monroe Counties of Tennessee. I will be happy to share photographs from local cemeteries here in the Crabtree/Iron Duff area of Haywood County, NC.

If you have time, I would appreciate your paying a visit to the memorial for my brother David Edwards Nichols, Metz Cemetery, Graham County, NC. David passed away on February 17, 2012. He was an avid genealogist and took many photos of stones for Find A Grave, as well as located pictures of individuals so I could post them. I have many more to post because he worked much faster than I. He's in Heaven now, and knows the answers to many of the questions I still have about our ancestors--always a step ahead of me. Thank you.

David Edward Nichols

RE: Burchfield-Key Cemetery
I've added this cemetery and placed little Ivy's memorial there. Thank you so much for your help and convey my condolences to her family. Such a tragic loss of a little one.

RE: Burchfield-Key Cemetery
Thanks for the info. So sad about the precious little baby. My thoughts and prayers are with the family. I'll create the cemetery this afternoon - headed to church this morning. Joyce

RE: Burchfield Family Cemetery
Thanks. The obit was for an Infant, Ivey Grace Burchfield. Townson Smith is handling the funeral, etc. I couldn't find it anywhere, except in Cades Cove, TN

RE: Burchfield Family Cemetery
I read an obit on Townson Smith Funeral Home today with the burial being at Burchfield Family Cemetery. I could not find it on Findagrave and wondered if it had a different name or if you knew about it. Here is the description: Burchfield Family Cemetery
Moose Branch Road
Robbinsville, NC 28771

Burchfield Family Cemetery
Hi there, hope all is well with you. Have a question for you: does the Burchfield Family Cemetery have another name? Couldn't find it on Find A Grave. Thanks, Joyce

RE: Elizabeth Van Loon
Thank You! No I've never heard of him, nor read his article. I'll look it up. A photo! I'm excited. Again, thanks.

Susannah Hampton
I’m trying to establish my 2nd GGMother’s maiden name. Her married name was Elizabeth Van Loon and she authored 4 books in the 1880s. She was born in Yancey County, NC on 6 Mar 1844. According to the North Carolina Government & Heritage Library, Elizabeth might be a Bailey or Hampton.

(See here:

On the 1850 Census for Yancey County there are 2 Elizabeth Baileys born in 1844. One married and died there and is not my Elizabeth. The other is your Elizabeth Bailey. She is also listed in the 1860 Census. Your Memorial on Susannah Hampton Bailey said Elizabeth was born in 1854. Maybe you meant 1845? Is there any possibility that the family story of all these girls dying of Black Tongue Fever might have confused how many died and that she might not have died? My Elizabeth did marry a Northerner – maybe the family just considered her dead anyway:>(

Any help you could provide would be great appreciated. BTW – great memorials for both Susannah and Jonathan.
