Bio and Links
Bio Photo My sister Ann and I started searching for our ancestors in 1978 before all the automation took place. We enjoyed visiting the court houses and cemeteries where our relatives live. Got back into genealogy in 2012 to document what we found and get new information. We are descendants of Samuel Watson Reid (1831-1902) g-grandfather of the Steele Creek area of Charlotte and Manley's of Carnesville, GA.

Past genealogy projects:
1. Volunteer indexer for the 1940 Federal Census
2.Photo Documenting (with the help of my husband) tombstones in Mooresville, Iredell county, NC and listing on
-- Glenwood Memorial Cemetery Mooresville
-- Willow Valley Cemetery Mooresville
-- Green Acres Mooresville
-- Berea Baptist Church Mooresville
-- Rocky Mount United Methodist

David Rea - Steele Creek Presby.
I visited Steele Creek Presby. Church Cemetery in Charlotte, NC, today.

I saw an earlier photo request for a David Rea b.1741 d. 1784 and buried in plot: 7IE.

I looked at the available church listings as saw that there was one David Rea buried there but his death is clearly readable as being 1834.His marker also states he died in his 42nd year of life which would have him being born in 1792.

Finally, this David Rea is not buried at the listed plot: 7IE but instead is buried in plot: EH7

Same Kluttz / Clutts
Hello Barbara, I was looking at the Bethel United Methodist Church cemetery On Find A Grave an saw Sophia Clutts that you have recorded there is also another recorded Sophia Little Kluttz same dates as yours and a stone picture in which I cant make out to see if the last name was Clutts or Kluttz although I believe it is the same member of my Kluttz family ive been working on correcting the spelling of the entire Klotz/Kluttz/Klutz/Clutts/Cluts/Clutz family. seems the spelling has changed some what depending on were you go and who wrote it down I guess but one thing is a fact we are all from the same tap root. Seems the name Klotz started in Germany to Burke County Penn. as Klotz to Rowan County NC as Kluttz then spread to Illinois and Tenn. as Clutts. It may be true that Sophia was buried as Clutts if the stone shows that and the other recorder added her as Kluttz both are correct as I have researched but for the record I would like to record it correctly on my entire Kluttz family tree. If you can get intouch with the other poster to maybe add Clutts if the stone shows that that may clear up the duplicate recordings.

Hugh McKay
Elnora Mayhew McKay
Part of your information on the Memorial (93618459)for Elnora McKay is in error. Her spouse was not Herbert Mayhew. Her spouse was Hugh Gordon McKay B. 1896 d. 1983, Memorial 93578010. He is buried in the same cemetery with her. I know this to be true because I am their son Hugh Gordon McKay III. Please correct this error and advise me when it is done. You may reach me at

Thank you.

RE: Bonner / Laird kin
Thank you for the kind words, Barbara! I changed email addresses and just noticed that you have sponsored James and Mary Bonner's memorials. Thank you so much! If you would like me to transfer the Elizabeth Bonner line memorials that I manage to you, just let me know.

Macy and Mary Sherrill
Thank you so much for linking Macy and Mary Sherrill to the correct parents. Vashti, and various forms of it, is family name among the Sherrills and Littles. It is confusing.
