Bio Photo Hi,

I am retired and live in Central North Carolina. I have been doing family research for 40 years. The internet just makes it easier to look for dead relatives, but you still have to make sure the information is correct.

Some of my favorite cemeteries are Bonaventure in Savanah, Ga, Allegheny in Pittsburgh, Pa and Oakdale in Wilmington, NC. I love the old statues and the hidden meanings of different designs of headstones.

All photos submitted by me are copyrighted by me, no use of photos for any other website or personal use is given without prior consent.

Transfers: Transfers outside Find A Grave guidelines will be assessed on a case by case basis. Please tell me your specific relationship to the deceased.

I am glad to enter corrections, links and additional information. Please use the Edit tab on the memorial and click on the Suggest a Correction link. Do not email transfer requests or corrections. Please use the Edit tab on the memorial.

ADDENDUM: Photographs I have taken at burial locations may be used by others for any legitimate purpose. Hopefully, I would be given credit for the work. Personal photographs I have added to memorials that I created and maintain, remain in my control and are considered copyrighted materials. I hope that you will enjoy viewing the personal photographs I have posted.

Please visit my dear friend Pam who died much too soon.

Yancey Francis (again)
Yancey's ex-wife, Gillie might be buried in Leemont Cemetery in Danville because two of her sons are buried there. But I wasn't sure so I just made her an unknown.

One of her sons death certificate has that his father was Basil LaPrade---but I couldn't find Basil anywhere either.

I love trying to find the people that are hard to find. I was thrilled when I found Yancey finally.

Now I need to find some of the other children--none of which were Yancey's as far as I know.

Yancey Francis
This might confuse you.

I've been looking for Yancey in Virginia, and seem to have found him here in NC where he was born.

It looks like he was married at least three times---once to Gillie Dickerson LaPrade (a widow). but since she outlived him, it looks like they divorced eventually.

(They did). He married Gillie in Danville on Oct. 13, 1906. Divorced on March 21, 1919 in Pittsylvania Co. Va. (They have a different marriage date on that record---so maybe they were married twice???).

He had married a Laura Williams on Jan. 17, 1897 in Pittsylvania Co. Va. She must have died since he was listed as a widower when he married Gillie.

But I'm pretty sure this is the same Yancey that Gillie had been married to.

Since he divorced Gillie, I don't know whether to send in a connection to her or not. But he used to be considered a step-father to her kids at one time. (She's entry number 150391318).

Thank you for your note regarding this cemetery.

Let me know if there are any additional changes and I'll be happy to make them for you. Also, if any of these people are relatives just let me know and I'll be glad to transfer them to you.
