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

RE: John Lowe
My wife and her Lowe cousin have had a DNA test through ancestry. You should have one and see if y'all are related.

John Ira Moose
Thank you so much for the prompt transfer of the memorial for John Moose. You are always so willing to do transfers outside the Find A Grave guidelines, which is always appreciate.

RE: John Lowe
William Berry Lowe married Sallie Walker Lowe after her husband John Wesley Lowe died. They are all buried together. I have not been able to find a direct connection to the two Lowes. I have found information that William came from Anson county NC. I have been able to trace Johns line back to Gaston/Lincoln County. It would probably take a DNA test to determine if they were related.

Hello Rick, I'm Jeffery Dean Kluttz Sr., I have been reasearching the Klotz family and upon finding your entries for my family listed on Find A Grave in the Grace Lowerstone Cemetery in Rockwell NC. I discovered that they are two set of Kluttz and Klutts listed here one set by you and the other set by Carol Griffin it appears you both have the same family members both with a different spelling of the last name Example: Paul Kluttz Sr. Born 1796-1848 listed by Carol Griffin does not match the records and tomb stone how ever she does link them with correctly with other members of the family. On the other hand your Paul Klutts Sr. is listed with a (s) and does match the records and the Stone but you do not have them linked to other family members yet. If we can I would like to correct this listing and the spelling of the last name on all the names mentioned in the cemetery . please call me 704-467-5664 thank you.

RE: Lillie Mae Crawford (139371636)
I don't understand Richard. Is there something I'm missing? Long Creek Baptist in Dallas is where I have Lillie Crawford's memorial.

Thanks Richard. A little bit too hot to be out taking pics don't you think.
