I left a younger photo of James Lois McIntyre on your memorial. It was a photo of all of his brothers if you want me to upload the complete one, let me know on my page here.

RE: Meta McWilliams
You are very welcome. Are you interested in managing any of the McWilliams' or Quick's I have entered? If you are, send me a transfer request through the edit tab. If not, I don't mind keeping them under my management, I just wanted to put the offer out there.

John, My husband's line is from Robert Berry and Rebecca Hulme's son James R Berry who married Amanda Wiltshire.

We may be related on the West side as well. Oh My! :-)

family tree
Hi John

Do you have a family tree posted where I can see if we are from the same line of Wests from Hopkinsville, Kentucky?

My Dad's Grave
Dear John,

Thank you for entering my dad onto this site. I found out about this yesterday. That picture you have on the site is one I never saw. I really appeciate it. I have not been back to that part of North Carolina since my mom's funeral. I never got to meet very many of my relatives on my dad's side of the family. My brother Johnny and I are trying to learn as much about his side of the family and about him before he married his mom. Please email me at I would love to share phone numbers and get a chance to talk. I think I got a chance to me you in the early 1980's when you were in South Carolina. As guess as we get older our memories begin to outnumber our future, so I want to add to the memories, so I can share them with my children.

Your Cousin

Thank you so much for the pictures, I didn't think I would ever get them, it had been so long since I had requested them.

You made reference to J. E. Leffew's stone, did you take a picture of it by chance?

Thanks again so much. Laura Riggsby is my Aunt's great grandmother, she is going to be so thrilled to have a copy of this picture, she didn't even know where she was buried.

Thanks for being a volunteer too.
