Mary Shannon
I was adding photos to St. James Perkiomen Church Cemetery I see you have a memorial for Mary Shannon #117251027. I have a photo for Mary Shannon with a death date of Dec. 29, 1898 at 76 year old. Your memorial has the same Month and day but the years do not match. Do you think this might be the same Mary Shannon? If not, I will add mine as a new memorial.

I guess a link is a no-go. To see the survey, google "238 RALEIGH CITY CEMETERY [OLD] - Surname starts with W" The survey is on

Memorial# 87348376 Wesley Whitaker
There is a survey of City Cemetery online with photographs. The survey notes that top and bottom halves of Wesley Whitaker's and his wife Sarah's headstones have been mixed together. The photographs of the jumbled headstones clearly show the problem. It would be nice if someone corrected this at the cemetery, but that apparently hasn't been done.

Memorial# 87348376 Wesley Whitaker
The information and part of the broken marker you show for Wesley Whitaker are actually for his wife Sarah Langley Whitaker b. Apr. 10, 1788, d. Apr. 30, 1857. Her information is at Find A Grave Memorial# 105970645 and comes from from a cemetery survey compiled in 1940 by the Historical Records Survey of North Carolina located in the Wake County Family Records Collection, State Archives.

Wesley Whitaker actually died July 6, 1861 (obituary). He wrote a Wake Co., North Carolina, will dated November 6, 1857, probated in 1861. He also was on the 1860 census in Wake Co.:

1860 > NORTH CAROLINA > WAKE > RALEIGH P O Series: M653 Roll: 916 Page 173
HH 541/552
Wesley Whitaker 72 piano maker 1500/3000 North Carolina
Lea H Whitaker 35 North Carolina

Clearly, he was alive after Apr. 30, 1857. The grave markers for Wesley and his wife Sarah were both broken and the marker you show is a misleading combination of Wesley's and Sarah's markers.

Because both Ancestry and FamilySearch now link to Find a Grave it would be great if you could amend the information about Wesley Whitaker.

RE: Sanford Britt
I've added Margaret J Britt (Sanford's 1st wife) and their son Bennie Britt to the Britt Cemetery (aka Orin Stone Cemetery) where Sanford is buried. I have some of their dates and a copy of Sanford & Margaret's marriage license. Hope you don't mind, I can not locate a death cert on either of them.

Walters Cemetery
Would like to know if there is a stone/marker for Arry/Orra Britt. She and Nimrod Britt are my great, great grandparents. Also, could you give me the location of this cemetery, as I would like to visit on my next trip to NC.
I researched the people buried there (according to your virtual cemetery). They all seem to be related. Would appreciate any info you have on Arry/Orra and Nimrod Britt.
I discovered a newspaper article relating Nimrod's death, October 14, 1880. Found in The Daily Review in Wilmington, North Carolina on Wed, Oct 20, 1880. Announcement of the death of Mr. Nimrod Britt.
Thanks so very much for posting the info on the Walters cemetery.

Vanessa Cole
Cedar Grove Confederate Soldiers
Hi Eric,

My name is Vanessa Cole and I live in Williamsburg, VA. I am a Civil War historian and am very familiar with the Civil War history here. I have noticed that you have created a Find A Grave page for all of the soldiers who are buried at Cedar Grove and you have included plot info (grave number/row). I am doing research on the men buried there and am wondering where you got that information. I've seen plot info as you have it listed in the Bucktrout Ledger and am wondering if that is where you got it or if there is another source of info for these soldiers. Unfortunately, the men buried there have no marker or stone, which is the basis of my current research and I am the beginning stages of getting acknowledgement for all of them. I look forward to hearing from you.

Thank you.

Britt Cemetery
Hey Eric,
I added my great-grandfather (Sanford Britt) to Britt Cemetery (on Matthews Bluff Rd near Sadie Dr) with a copy of his death cert & obit. My Dad told me that's where he was buried years ago and both the death cert & obit list him being buried in Stone Cemetery, but I've heard it called both. Hope you don't mind me adding him. I've found some info that lists Sanford being married to Margaret J. Britt 1975-1910, and she's my great-grandmother, but I can't locate anything else on her, as far as a death cert, obit or anything. If you come across any info, I'd love to have it...Thanks for everything.

RE: Sanford Britt
Thank you so much, this is info I did not have. Do you have any clue or info where any of these are buried? I know where Sanford is buried, but the cemetery is overgrown and I dont think his grave is even marked. Again thank you very much

Eric Stone, I'm new to findagrave, but would like to know who you are and any information you have about the Butler/Rouse family - my husbands family. He is deceased, but his/my children would like any information you have about this family. Ann Davis Butler (wife of Ernest A Butler)

Sanford Britt
Here's the info I have, do you have any more or better info: Sanford Britt died on Nov 16, 1931 and was the son of Jake Britt. 1st wife was Margaret Britt (no info on her) 2nd wife was Carrie Britt, died May 2, 1949. Sanford & Margaret were my great-great grand parents. Biggs Funeral Home buried Sanford and records show Stone Cemetery. But the obit in the Robesonian shows Orrin Stone Cemetery. My Father always showed me once and it was all grown up (and still is) near the "drop off" off Matthews Bluff rd near the river. That's where I stop on my Britt Family, can you help me with any of these. Thanks

and my great-grandfather was Sanford Britt, he was buried in a cemetery behind what is called Stone Cemetery and his grave isn't marked, his Obit called it the Orrin Stone Cemetery in the Long Branch Section.

RE: Stone Family Cemetery
Henry & Florence are my Great-grandparents and Walters Cemetery is just off NC72 behind what use to be called Long Branch Mobile Home Park, and if you are familiar with Ethrige & Polly Walters home it's near there. I added it to this site with everyone's name and photo of the grave site as well. Thanks for your help

George Hudson
George Hudson is my great-grandfather. I had the stone made for my g-grandparents. His name is George Thomas Hudson, born in Liverpool, England; died in Charleston, SC. He married Laura Lee Godwin on May 18, 1892 in Charleston, SC. Have copies of the death certificates and marriage license.
Every year since; I had the stone done, would stop by on way to Isle of Palms and put flowers down.
Would like to know when he came to America, did he come by himself or did he have his family?

Stone Family Cemetery
Ref the Stone Family Cemetery where Bryant Britt #123966256 is buried, can you advise where that cemetery is located in Britts Township, a road it might be near or some type of land mark. I think my great-grandfather is buried there, but there's no stone on his grave site, so I have been told. thanks

Moyer #113973332
Hi there. Franklin Moyer was not buried at Arlington Nat'l Cemetery. His remains were shipped home to Pennsylvania for burial.

A memorial for him was created 7 years before yours and placed in the actual cemetery (#18962194). Would you please delete your Arlington memorial to resolve the duplicate.
