If you know the location of any cemetery in Ashe Co., NC which does not already have a map on FindAGrave, I would appreciate very much hearing from you.

I would like to transfer my non relative memorials to any relatives who are active users of Find A Grave. Just ask. I make mistakes. Contact me with changes, corrections, etc.
My family surnames of interest are Walker, Starr, Sadler, Rumph, Jones, Moreland, Summers, Anderson, Shields, Thiesen, Couper & Traylor.
You are welcome to use my photos for any noncommercial use (eg post on your or other genealogy site tree- public or private).

Beginning in 2011, I have completed the photographing (often begun by others) of the following:

Alleghany Co., NC: 2 Cemeteries

Ashe Co., NC: 396 Cemeteries

Avery Co., NC: 22 Cemeteries

Caldwell Co., NC: 27 Cemeteries

RE: William Williams
Ok, thank you, but neither their mother or father have gravesites that I can refer to. I can verify the information from death certificates though.

RE: David Graybeal photo
Robert Graybeal has removed the incorrectly identified photograph of David Graybeal from the ancestry site. I hope this will take care of the problem! Thanks!!

David Graybeal photo
Please note that the photo posted on your memorial for David Graybeal (1815-1894) is incorrectly identified. This photo is of David Graybeal (1815-1909) son of Peter Graybeal Jr and Mary Burkett. This David is my ggg grandfather and I am positive of the identification! Thank you.

RE: grave photo for James Turner
I don't recall a Mary Ann Stevens Turner, but if I get back to that cemetery, I'll look carefully, just in case. Sorry the James Turner I found was not the right one, but I was hoping! :)
