Bio Photo Due to email problems I have having difficulty making corrections at this time. I have been blocked out of my own account. This has been going on for over two months. Please forgive if I have not attended to your request. I'll catch us as soon as I figure out what has happened.

Friends, you are invited to visit the memorial page for our son
Nathan Peurifoy He died unexpectedly in October 2014 at age 26 from a diabetic coma.
I am taking a leave of absence from Find a grave for awhile. I'll keep up with my edits, but corrections will just have to wait..
Thank you all for your prayers, friendship and care. It is appreciated.

The life of a person is more than the dash between two dates. It is my hope that the memorials which I create or manage can make the individuals life fuller, even if just linking to family members or adding a few tidbits of information. Researching and including other family information makes them more than graves, they are people. Suggestions are welcome but please submit them using the edit button at the upper right corner of each memorial.
Even when transcribing cemeteries I work hard to link other family members.
I live in the northwestern mountains of North Carolina and have work primarily in cemeteries there. My current focus is Carolina Memorial Park in Concord, North Carolina. There are 28,000 graves but only about 15,500+ listed. I've done more than 4,000 of those. Much of my family is buried there.


My family can be traced back 46 generations to County Leichester, England. The family is English/Norman. They came to England with William after the Battle of Hastings in 1066. The photo above is my ancestor, Sir Nicholas Purefoy, buried in The Church of St. Michael and all Angels in Fenny Drayton, Co. Leicestershire, England. The spelling of my name is the most rare of the three family groups: Purefoy, Purifoy and Peurifoy. The early Purefoys were in Jamestown, VA long before the Hugonaut movement.
On my paternal side I am interested in the Peurifoy, Purifoy, Purefoy, Scott and Suther families.
For my maternal side are Statons, Stiller's,and Moores (from Stanly Co, NC).
My wife is from the Byrd and Carr families of Duplin County, NC.
You are invited to visit the memorials of my grandmother Lillian Scott Peurifoy, my mother
Hazel Staton Peurifoy
and Father Robert Eugene Peurifoy.

Thanks to all who help with my typo, mistakes and incorrect links. I could not accomplish this without your help.

Proud member of the Patriot Guard Riders.

Hi Robert!

I am researcher, for the Moore and Griffin families, and checking on 'Rosalia', I found her Death Cert. and it states that she was on Nov 14, 1917, not 1911. Sorry, your have computer, hope you can correct her Birth Date, soon.

Also, (and I don't say this often enough), not only for me as a family researcher, but for the other researcher's as well, and that is, how we ALL appreciate your efforts in FindAGrave, cause without your unselfish dedication, in any weather, to create these handsome Memorial's....., you see, family genealogy researcher's and investigators would be at a loss, without YOU!

Thank you Robert, and all you Guy's and Gal's out there in FindAGrave, please, keep up the great work!

Missing Nathan
Hi Robert and family,

I came across your post while researching another and read your message. I am so sorry about the loss of your son. I do understand...I lost my son at 19. It has been 12 years and I still miss him.

On his birthday, or his death day, or when I see someone that looks like him, I cry. But the rest of the time, I live for the living. For those that God has left in my life. I trust Him.

Many blessings to you!

RE: Miremont
You're welcome.I'm glad it helped you out. I know that I have found several members of my very large family on the find-a-grave web site and it has helped me out a lot on my family tree.

RE: Farmington
I hope they will. I am slowly working my way through creating a new census for this cemetery. The old one is full of errors and I have been in contact with them to let them know of the errors I've found. Once I get everything corrected and get everyone listed, I will send all the information to them to update their records.

Thank you again for being such a good sport. I wish I could say I was done with this cemetery, but unfortunately I am not. I have done all but two graves on the hill at the back of the cemetery. Those are unmarked. I assume they had temporary markers which have been lost/moved as they are new graves. I think I found the name for one of those last night and added that information. I have yet to finish the graves at the front or on the side of the entrance road.

If there's anything I can do to help please let me know.

Thanks again,

Hi Robert, I am so sorry to hear of your son's passing. I cannot imagine the pain and heartache with the death of a child. I just lost a young friend that had suffered from this horrible disease all of his life. You placed a photo on the above memorial and it is the photo of his son's stone. If you could just delete this for me. My thoughts and prayers are with you & family.

Graves of Weatherspoons and others related to me
Appreciate the work you have done in recording these graves. I am not a Weatherspoon, but my grandma was a Branch and some Weatherspoons descend from Hepsey Branch, dau of Richard Calvin Branch (who 'survived four wives' my father said - there's a fifth wife he did not survive, too!)
