Update to profile.

If you sent me a SAC since August 15, 2013 and I have not made corrections - it may have been accidently deleted. Please resend. I know of at least 2 that were deleted by mistake.

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


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.

Ethel Brame Ozment
Thank you very much for filling my photo request for Ethel Ozment. I believe that is a cenotaph. According to her death certificate she is buried at Holts Chapel.

Just want to thank you for being so quick to get a picture of that tombstone. I just put the request on yesterday---after I discovered that he had been moved from Bethany United Methodist Church.

I really do appreciate that!!

RE: Your great grandfather
My great grandfather was James Henry Yoder. I've also seen it as J. Henry and Henry J. Everyone called him Henry from what I can gather. He was born in 1873 (possibly June). He lived in the Catawba County and Lincoln County areas all of his life. My mother remembers that he died in either Newton or Maiden. His mother was Sarah Frances Yoder but I can't find a father for him. His first wife was Ida Catherine Sain. His second wife was her sister, Mary Alice Sain. He also had a possible third wife named Medie or Mattie. His first wife is buried at Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church in Vale. On Christmas Eve I took my mother to that church and she remembers it being the church where Henry was buried. He died sometime in the mid 1940s. Sometime after his death the church was added on to and the congregation requested that Henry's grave be moved to make way for the expansion. My grandfather said "no" but it is believed that his brothers gave the church permission to move his grave. We search as much as we could for his grave while there, but it was a very cold day and with a cemetery that large we just couldn't complete the search. So far I haven't been able to find anything recorded for his death. I thought that if I could find his death certificate that it would list the place of his grave, but so far no luck. I've searched FindAGrave and, but to no avail. In your searches have you seen a grave marker for James Henry (or any variation thereof) Yoder?

Thank you again for all that you have done!

Thank you!
Thank you for all have done to document these graves. I am in the Piedmont of North Carolina and have been searching for my ancestor over the past 2 years. I'm still actively looking for my great grandfather's grave.

Thank you again,
