Bio and Links
I have long, long connections with Wilkes County, NC. I grew up in upper Virginia, the D.C. area to be exact, and would visit here from time to time with my dad, who was born in Wilkes County. In 1967, we moved to CA and I married in 1970 and moved to Oregon where I lived until 2000. At that time, I moved back to CA to help with my parents. Each year, we would visit during late September/early October for family reunions and about two years ago, daddy and mother were getting tired of things in CA in the Bay Area and started thinking about moving. We looked at property in Wilkes County and last September found the home we now live in. We moved from CA to "home" and the moving van pulled up on Dec. 26 of 2007 and in we moved! We are glad to be home among family and friends and while I have never lived here before, it feels like home since my roots go back to the 1770's here and I feel like I know all there is to know about Wilkes (which, I'm sure, is not true!) But, here I am and since I am caregiver for my 90-year old dad and 85-year old mother, (who has since passed away on June 11 2009), I don't work and have some free time on my hands. I am going to attempt to photograph Wilkes County cemeteries over time and since findagrave was so helpful to me, I am happy to be able to add to the lists. I am willing to help with questions and answers about Wilkes cemeteries and history, but cannot guarantee I will do it in "your time". lol I love this website and appreciate all the great contributors.

RE: Joel Triplett
Thank you for your note.

Other than 1850 & 1860 censuses, that is the only note I have--no details.

Any information will be greatly appreciated.

relative information
Hello... Sidney Stokes Barlow, Wilkes County NC was my great grandfather. I'm the granddaughter of James B. and Mae Bishop Barlow. Where did you obtain information on my relatives. By the way he is buried on Long Fork Road just past the Advent Church but not in the church cemetery.

Robert Lee Gregory
I have been trying to connect the dots with my family roots. I came across find-a-grave for my grandmother's uncle, Robert Lee grandmother was Laura Belle (Watts) Bellamy. Uncle Robert had a sister, Dovie (Gregory) Martin. Uncle Robert, his wife, Pearl, and Aunt Dovie used to visit with us and my grandparents' Statesville, NC home. I was going through some old obituaries, including Uncle Robert's. His parents are listed as William Miles and Laura Gregory. I just wanted to give you updated info.

Ruby Lee Triplett Hamby
I am unsure who the Ruby is that you are needing for the parents you have listed. The Ruby Lee Triplett Hamby, born on, 18 June 1917 and died on, 26 February 1992, is the daughter of Judson C Triplett and Ella Lou Wheeling Triplett. Can you please change or remove her. I have her in the system. She was married to James Burchette Hamby. Everyone using this is getting her parents wrong.

Thank you,
Crystal Jarrett Inman
