Bio and Links
Bio Photo Besides working on my own family tree I'm working, through public records such as those found on, to identify the men, women and children buried at the state hospitals in Morganton, NC, Goldsboro, NC, Brattleboro, VT, Namozine, VA, Rusk, TX, New Toronto, Canada, Meridian, MS and Middletown, CT and to link them to their loved ones. I have also listed those buried at the Caswell Training Center in Kinston, NC and Letchworth Village in NY and hope to have assistance in linking them to their loved ones.
To document the research involved I post the death certificates on those memorials and I add a non-working link to the research trees on where those interested can see how I arrived at my conclusions. Please desist in your attempts to dissuade me from so documenting my research and thereby facilitating others' attempts to research their loved ones. You know who you are. I ask that you calm yourself. This, too, shall pass.

I grew up in Greenville county, SC, first in the city of Greenville, then at the foot of Glassy Mountain in the "Dark Corner" where my maternal grandmother and her parents and grandparents were born. My mother, Anne Ballenger King McCuen, worked for decades as a meticulous land historian in upper SC and published several research texts. My father, William Garrison McCuen, MD worked for decades as an internist/general practitioner caring for many of the upstate SC residents in their homes, hospitals, the Veterans' clinic and his office.

Now I am in the foothills of NC, but enjoy maintaining family property near Glassy Mtn.

You hereby have my express permission to use ANY photo I have made and posted to Find a Grave for your own purposes - but I would appreciate a credit notation as the source should you repost it on your family tree, for this reflects the efforts made in preserving the record and may also provide a link to others interested in that person or cemetery.

I "inherited" a number of memorials posted by Buck Buchanan who introduced me to FAG and will happily transfer them to family. Just send a SAC stating your relationship and I'll be pleased to turn them over to your care. Alternatively, if you are working to identify folks in a particular cemetery where Buck posted memorials and would like to manage the memorials he posted - just let me know and I'll be happy to transfer them to your management. I have found that Buck duplicated a few of the memorials he posted (and on occasion so have I) - if you find that to be the case please let me know so I can remove the duplicates.

As for those of you who assist me in making these memorials useful and respectful, "thanks" and please keep your helpful edits coming.

A lot of conflicts might be avoided among us if each of us will accept and act as if this is about those who've gone before and NOT about us.

If you are fortunate enough in life to be looking for a project to do - please consider documenting the African American cemeteries in your community.

Louise Hendricks photo
I was in Springwood Cemetery yesterday and went by to look for Louise Hendricks' marker. Her husband's marker is there, but there is an empty space next to his. There is no marker, but I assume that is the grave. I took a photo of the space including his marker and will gladly upload it if you wish. You can email me at if you would like the picture sent to you.

RE: Neaman Fowler 152835851

Iīve about come to the conclusion that the Neaman Fowler in Canada is most likely not from N.C.

In looking at some things in Ancestry, I saw somewhere that the one in N.C. had died very young, probably before they had death certificates.

But it doesnīt look like he has a known grave anywhere either.

Neaman Fowler 152835851
Hi Sue--

Was wondering if there is a chance that this Neaman Fowler could be the son of William Rhomas and Emma Baker Fowler of Stokes Co., N.C.???

I havenīt seen any other Neaman Fowlers in Find A Grave.

I do know of a few other relatives that went from Stokes Co. to Canada at one time. But I donīt know if they had known Neaman fowler.

What do you think???

McCuen Condolences
Sorry to read about the loss of both your mother and more recently your father. I lost my mother in 2013. Your folks sound like quite a couple, and did a lot in their lifetime. The 60s vintage photo of your mom sitting near a waterfall, reminds me of how my mom used to wear a scarf similar to yours in cold weather. I love the sweet photo of them walking away together on the sidewalk. Nice biographies for both of them.

Broughton Question

When did the new markers get added to Broughton Cemetery in Morganton, NC? I had been there a number of years ago, and all they had on top of the hill were concrete posts, with chains roped through them, and a tiny metal tag with a number on it, to identify the deceased. It must have been a huge undertaking. At last some dignity to those people. Good to see memorials actually created for them on Find A Grave.

RE: My Condolences
My grandmother was Mary Jo (Josephine) McCuen Jones, daughter of Milton Manley McCuen. According to RootsMagic, they were technically first cousins, once removed.

Grandma was a few years older than your Daddy, but I think she must have seen him more frequently than I thought yesterday, at least when they were children. She told me about the nearly all day drive from Belton to visit "Aunt Jessie McCuen" in Greenville, but now that I have really looked at it, I think she must have meant your grandparents, since she didn't have another aunt with that name, just a first cousin, your grandmother.

My Condolences
I just wanted to let you know that I am so sorry for the loss of your father. My grandmother always fondly talked of her "first cousin, the doctor" and even though I can't imagine they met more than a handful of times, it seemed like he made a big, positive impression on her. I'd like to think there is a big McCuen reunion still going on in Heaven.

Photo for #136906744
Great photo of the stone for #8427418 Maggie Lollis Page and her husband James Arden Page. Would you also post it for James Arden Page #136906744, His Memorial only has his name. (No relation to me but love to see stones with the names) Thank you, BJ
