Bio and Links
Bio Photo I enjoy researching my own families as well as helping others research theirs. My own family includes Stephens/Stevens, Ferrell, Christenbury, Ross, Smith, House, Richardson, Broom, Starns, Black, McCall, Elrod, Cartee-Mostly from Charlotte and the surrounding area. Ross' are from South Carolina. The Smiths, Elrods and Cartees are from Anderson, SC. My grandmother, Charlene Dumont, was from Belgium.

Adding grave photos...
I appreciate very much when someone adds a grave photo to my memorials that do not have them, but if a memorial already has a perfectly good, legible grave photo, please do not add another simply because you have it. This is a chance we take when we walk randomly around cemeteries taking pictures. I happens to me all the time.
Keep in mind that only 5 photos can be added to a memorial without sponsorship. I would rather save that space for family to add personal photos, and every memorial I create is with hope that a family member will find it.

Transferring memorials...
I am very happy to do it. It makes me happy when someone in my memorials is found by a family member. I am also happy to transfer any memorial of someone who is of special interest to you whether you are related or not, as long as your intentions fall within FAG guidelines AND you plan to work with the memorial. If you don't plan to do anything with it, then there is no need for a transfer.
I WILL NOT TRANSFER FAMILY, I do not mind at all if you ask, but please don't be angry if I decline, as I likely will no matter how I am related. I have worked very hard on many of these memorials and I am always going back to research different family members and trying to add new information. So, I consider these memorials MINE. I am open to adding any information you have and I encourage photos, as long as they are accurate and within FAG guidelines.

My favorite contribution to this site is adding photos to memorials that do not have them. Most of my memorials come from the random pictures I take at cemeteries. I try to find some sort of information to add to every memorial I create. If I create a duplicate, just let me know and I will delete it and offer any information and photos to the original memorial.

I am noticing more and more contributors who send edit requests and messages who have no way to be contacted in return. If I can't confirm your request with a quick search, I will simply "decline" it. So, if you receive a "decline", or see no change per your request, perhaps it was because I had no way to contact you to ask for sources. I feel that if you opt to receive no messages, then you should not be able to contact anyone else either.

Please, be nice:-)
I will likely ignore bully demands and opinions. Making a suggestion is one thing. Badgering someone to do things your way is completely different.

**Please, when you can, take a minute to clean off grave markers covered in dirt or grass so that they are not buried forever:-)

I do not keep the pictures of graves once I have entered them. I usually check to make sure they have not been entered.
I not longer have a reason to return to Concord except on very rare occasions. Will try to remember next time I am there. We are getting a veterans marker for my Mother, so will be there sometime.

Terri, I linked him to the father Wm. but not to mother Fanny. Fanny is really a Burial Unknown and I don't link to Burial Unknowns. She is listed at Asbury but the contributor wrote on the memorial that she placed her there because she doesn't know where Fanny is buried. This is called "plopping" and I don't link to plops either, as they lead to duplicates. This is findagrave, not guessagrave. Hope you understand!

RE: Effie Cox
Thanks to your work I've been able to connect the dots on a number of people. I'll let you be the judge on whether they should be transferred to me. I'm new to this but it's really been a thrill to be able to put these families back together, even if it's after death. It's also been interesting to learn how everyone seems to be somehow kin to everyone, especially on the westside.

RE: Tim Mayes
I didn't see section markers. However, as you enter it is on the far right side. It is in a section that has a large white statue in the middle of the section. Tim's grave is on the right side near the edge of the cemetery.

RE: House Family
As for the House Family my great-aunt MaryMargaret
Yandle married Andrew's brother Ambrose and they had a ton of children. All though I have scoured both the Charlotte Observer and The Charlotte News
Newspaper I have NOT been able to find an obituary for them. There are pictures of them on line. As for the McCall you mentioned a great deal of the McCall's who lived in Mecklenburg County (especially those who attended the Philadelphia Presbyterian Church in Mint Hill really intermarried with the Yandel/Yandell branch that lived mainly in and around Pineville. In fact my 2nd great-aunt Sarah Elizabeth Yandle the daughter of William Yandle and Elizabeth Harkey Yandle married Miles Milton Yandel who is the son of Samuel Milton Yandel and his first wife
Delilah Massey. Samuel Milton Yandel married 2nd Sarah Elizabeth McCall. I have done extensive research on not only my Yandle/Yandel/Yandell/Yandles line I have also done quite a bit of research on the lines they married into including the House and McCall Lines. In fact a son of my great-uncle William Caldwell Yandle married a daughter of Ambrose House and (his own father's sister) MaryMargaret Yandle. He later on deserted her so her children reverted to using the House surname instead of the Yandle one. I am more than willing to share all I have on the Yandle, House, and McCall's.

Sarah Jane Faulkenberry
Once upon a time, William Williams married Lucy Horton. The had 20 children !A dau., Margaret E., m. Jacob Joakim Faulkenberry, Sr. Their son, JJ Jr. m. Mary Taylor. They had John F."Big John" Faulkenberry. He m. a cousin, Margaret M Williams. One of their many children was Sara Jane, my 5th c 1xr.

My cousin who works closely with me in our genealogy, has come to the conclusion that I am related to everyone in Kershaw County and most in Lancaster , then throw a few in from Chester Chesterfield, and York Counties.

If you ever are looking for info, give me a call-912-295-4646 or We have 75,218 plus in our data bases with 80,635 citations, 26,718 exhibits and 14,536 sources.

[Gary has a Master's Degree in research
librarianship-good cousin to have !]

By the way, I totally agree with you about transferring ownership to another. I will claim what I posted but not what others post. I will add family info if they do not have it but the name should be that of the one who walked the cemeteries, photoing the tombstones.
