RE: Wisteria Willis Hatchette-Greenlawn Memorial Gardens .Spartanburg S.C.
He was married to my relative Kitty. I will transfer him but prefer to keep Kitty's children.

Please go to the edit button on his memorial and ask for a transfer and it will be much easier.

RE: Reply -
Hi Valerie,
Got your message and just wanted to say that Americans have been programmed, by the liberal media, into believing that we invented racism, slavery and every other dark day in our society that continues to be promoted by the propaganda machine of the North. It is what we call "cultural genocide," in the South. They want our identity to be smashed just like they smashed, burned and invaded our towns and cities; and robbed, looted, pillaged, tortured and killed our ancestors. The SC Senate has already taken their bribes and voted to take down our army's flag. The House will vote next and I am sure that they too will be voting to remove it since they have already sold us out. The Battle flag is a symbol of our resistance to Northern political dominance.
Take care and stay strong Valerie.

RE: Confederate Flag
Dear Valerie,
Sometimes you don't know who your friends are until times get rough, but I am sorry that those two would not accept or learn the truth; not the false truth from the Yankee side of the world either. Southern men, women and children died in the War Between the States; more than 300,000 thousand of them. We owe them a great debt of gratitude for their sacrifice.
I have many folders full of facts about the Great War, which most folks don't wish to hear about, but I could discuss this every day for a year, and I would still have material and sources that remained unheard. Today, I will send you the first of many that I can tell you about. This one is not technical, or anti-anything, it is just simple fact:
"We are a melting pot of cultures and heritage from all over the globe as evidenced by the numerous celebrations respected, embraced and honored each year in our United States. Some of these include Cinco de Mayo, Chanukah, Oktoberfest, Diwali, Ramadan and Kwanza. The celebrations include cultural foods, clothing, decorations, display, traditional events and even flags.
The people who celebrate these events do so out of cultural pride and heritage. Each and every person should be proud of their culture and their heritage and everyone of any other culture should respect that persons pride in it. No culture or heritage is perfect. Each one has, at some point in history, experienced a dark side...suffered an event brought about by some person or group within their culture that created anguish, pain and/or loss to some other group of people. There is no perfect culture, no perfect heritage, no perfect history.
So now I ask you...if we respect and support the rights of all these groups to openly celebrate their heritage and culture despite its former shortcomings, why can't we, as Southern Americans, not openly celebrate and take pride in ours? If we do not take offense to other cultures based on atrocities of the past and their perpetrators (ie...persecutions, cannibalism, terrorism, guerrilla warriors, dictators, conquerors and rulers) then we should not take offense at the heritage and culture of the South.
There is so much more to the history of the Southern American way of life than just a flag and slavery. So why do other groups insist on summing it up in just those two items?"
The Southland of America did not invent slavery. The Northern slave traders along with the black slave traders from South Africe brought the slaves here to America, and the flag they flew over the slave shops was the American flag, either the old 13 star flag or the newer 33, 34, and 35 star "Betsy Ross" or "Old Glory" flag. Slaves were still used in five of the Northern states during the Great War.
Have a Southern Day!

RE: Elbert Ray -Hughey and Rice Cemetery -Buncombe County
Valerie, so many of the death certificates are wrong, my husbands was! There are several Rice Cemeteries, most are private. I know there is one in Weaverville. Notice he was from Yancey, do you think maybe there? Wish I could be of more help, will check out the old buncombe registry when I can and let you know.

RE: Elbert Ray
Hi Valerie,
Not to worry about your computer, since the Hughey - Rice Cemetery already exists on Find A Grave. Seems like there were 80 interments there. Congratulations on finding your Great-grandfather too!
Holler if you need me,

Jeff

RE: Elbert B.Ray
Hi Valerie,
You'll have to refresh my memory on Elbert Ray, cause I don't recall looking for him now.
Yes, there's a D/C on him that states he was placed in the Hughey - Rice Cemetery in Riceville. If he was buried there as it states on his D/C, his marker would have been spotted before. This cemetery has been visited by Helen, so it could easily be in Tennessee, instead of NC. You won't find a plot number since that is a small cemetery up in the hills of Riceville.
As for making that burial official, the only way you could do that is find a marker, or talk to someone who knew he was placed there. Too many years gone now, so everyone will be deceased by now and I doubt that you will find his marker, since he was probably unmarked. He would be the only Ray in that cemetery, unless more are not known about. I am guessing that Walter Glenn Hughey was the informant, so go ahead and move him there if you want. Attach his D/C too for good measure.
Thanks
