Bio and Links
Bio Photo I retired as an elementary school principal in 2000. As a person that sleeps only 4 hours a night that leaves 20 hours to fill. Sitting home is not an option. Now, I drive a school bus 5 hours a day and visit cemeteries every chance I get. I have never been to a cemetery that charged admission and seldom is there a crowd. My wife, Sandra, is of a like mind so it works well. We both enjoy the hunt and the thrill that comes with each discovery. Let us know if we can help. If you have additional information on one of my post or you are a relative and want ownership, I will gladly transfer it to you. Just ask. Oh! By the way just call me Doc!
NOTE: Many times the family plot has names different from those on the headstone. I always attempt to provide a reference point for markers. Hope this is not confusing.

Two quotes worth remembering:

"Tread softly, dreams are buried here." Unknown

"If you wonder about your 'roots' you have two parents, four grandparents eight great-grandparents and 16 great-great-grandparents, and by the time you go back 10 generations 300 years or so- you had 1,024 people from whom you are directly descended. --Mady Castro

In making additions to this account #51980431 created by you in May 2010, I find that the same grave memorial was created by #44717182 (William) on Nov. 23, 2009. One should be deleted so there will not be an overlap. Would you contact William and determine the best way to resolve this issue?
Thanks so much,

Harvey Metcalf Transfer
Thank You Very Much. If you have any Metcalfs, you are willing to transfer, I would welcome them. I am trying to link the Metcalfs back to three brothers who came into Western N.C. in the 1790's.

RE: Frances Howell
Thanks for prompt response. I'll send the additions and connections your link, as they are only distantly related.

Rats. Meant to tell you that you have his year of birth shown as 1934. It should be 1931. I'm sure.

Hi, Richard
I have lots I could add to this memorial. I just requested links to his parents. I don't necessarily want to manage the memorial, but will be glad to give you additional info if you'd like to add it. Let me know. THANKS.

Please check the records for this person. There are 2 listings for this person in this cemetery. I'm not sure if she is who I'm looking for. If the name is Sarah Jiner Allen Lavendar Ihave the correct person. Thanks, Janis Webb Babb

RE: Margaret Saphronie MCGinnis Rhyne
Looking at the book would be terrific. Yes, I could purchase it or atleast someone look to see which Henry Rhyne my Barbara C. Long Rhyne married in Gaston Co. She died abt 1899-1900 - her probate was Oct 1900 in Gaston Co. I live in Frederick, Md . It's tough getting family history books .
