Bio Photo Native of North Carolina.
I became interested in family history in May 2010 when my mother's sister passed away. All three sisters had passed within three years! It made me realize that the older generation was leaving and if I wanted to know more about our family, I better start asking questions! I got very interested in family history and discovered that I really enjoy visiting eastern NC cemeteries, taking pictures of headstones, and figuring out who the people were and if/how they were related to me. I focus on Martin County (my dad's family) and Wilson County (my mom's family).

I am a member of the DAR. John Jackson Morgan Sr of Nash County, NC is the first Revolutionary War patriot I have been able to prove my connection to.

This hobby (obsession?) has been a real blessing in many ways. The best part is meeting relatives I never knew I had, and becoming friends with some of the most wonderful people I've ever known.

When contacting me about a memorial or photo I have added, PLEASE INCLUDE THE MEMORIAL NUMBER.

Martha Ann Dew Forbes
info and link to mother is incorrect
check the 1870 census Moses Dew was married to Spicey Ellis and had two children Martha and her brother Larry Dew is under Due

Spicey died and he as you note married Medea E 1887 and they had only one son Moses

Martha Ann Dew Forbes (1874 - 1944)*
Moses Moore Dew (1896 - 1928)*

would you please take the link off thanks

RE: Reddick Webb
Thank you! I admire your work as well and run across your name many times when I'm researching. I created the duplicate & sponsored his memorial b/c I got frustrated. I've been going through old emails from Find A Grave & saw one from you stating you had a child you were going to link to Redick Webb & you emailed me about the duplicate I created for him. Hence, my email to you. It's old, maybe you don't remember. My memorial for him is #118362393. I think I probably need to contact Find A Grave about it. Anyway, thanks!

He is my g-g-g grandfather & Sparrow will not tranfer. I asked her about 5 times & gave up. Do you have a solution?

RE: George Henry Sullivan (Wilson Co., NC)
Deborah you are so kind. I don't know why Daddy never had a footstone done for her. I need to talk to my brother and look into that. Nannie should be beside Pop....Bill O'Neal and at Grandpa's head...George Sullivan. The plot beside George H. Sullivan should be vacant. THat was to be for my uncle Henry E. Sullivan who ended up being buried in Wilmington. You are to kind thank you.

George Henry Sullivan (Wilson Co., NC)
Thank you Deborah. This was my Grandfather. Having trouble now with my Grandmother for I was at her funeral at the same Cemetery years ago. On one side of my Grandfather's headstone reads SULLIVAN and on the opposite side reads O'NEAL. Bill O'Neal was my Grandmother's second husband after my Grandfather died. Her name was Cottie Lee Cox Sullivan O'Neal. I can not even find a record on the cemetery's site. My brother went to Wilson about 10 months ago and said there was no footstone for my grandmother. Both our parents have passed now so we can't ask them why she has none. My Nannie and Pop used to live in a little house at 313 Park Avenue. I remember walking as a child to the cemetery by myself to visit my Grandfather's grave. Thank you for what you do!!!

I just wanted to thank you for the photograph you posted, several years back, of this dear lady's tombstone. Technically, she was not a relative, though she WAS my father's stepmother. She married my grandfather, whom I never knew, later in life. Each of them had been widowed twice, and all of their children were grown. I remember being amazed when we went to visit her on her birthday, and I -- wide-eyed child --- asked her how old she was, and she laughingly said "19" .... I hadn't calculated that as a leap-year-baby, she was then 76! Thanks again for your participation in this community of seekers of family history.
