Native of North Carolina.|
I became interested in family history in May 2010 when my mother's sister passed away. All three sisters had passed within three years! It made me realize that the older generation was leaving and if I wanted to know more about our family, I better start asking questions! I got very interested in family history and discovered that I really enjoy visiting eastern NC cemeteries, taking pictures of headstones, and figuring out who the people were and if/how they were related to me. I focus on Martin County (my dad's family) and Wilson County (my mom's family).
This hobby (obsession?) has been a real blessing in many ways. The best part is meeting relatives I never knew I had, and becoming friends with some of the most wonderful people I've ever known.

Thanks so much for taking the time to take and upload the photos of Rosa and her husband.
It's altruistic volunteers such as yourself that enable people to have photos they might not otherwise be able to obtain on their own.
Thank you, again.

You are most welcome. It was my pleasure.
|richard finnick||Sallie Roberson Ward; Mem # 64729938|
If you're interested in adding a bio for Sallie, she married John A. Ward on 22 Oct 1878 at Martin County, NC. Her marriage record gives her name as Sally. Understand your "obsession" and it never seems to wane.

|Cindy Hinton||RE: Willard Earl Bullock and Williaman Billie Phillips Bullock|
Hey Deborah. Thanks for the kind note. I believe her name really was Williaman. I wasn't certain until you posted a photo of her grave marker. Information on FamilySearch.org showed her name as Williaman, but mostly it was shown as Willie Mae. I think that's just the way the handwriting was interpreted when the documents were transcribed. Her grandmother (my great-great grandmother) was named William Ann. I believe that she was named after her grandmother. Or she may have received a combined name after her father, William, and her mother, Annie. It was a very unusual name. Thanks again for the photos.

Thank you so much for adding photos of their grave markers and for providing me with the links to Willard's parents. I also changed Williaman's name to reflect what is shown on her grave marker.
|Bill Bland||Emma Wynne Bland|
You asked why I showed the maiden name as Wynne. That was incorrect,it is actually her middle name. According to her death certificate, her father's last name was Parasher. Maybe she was married to someone with the surname Martin. I do not know. If you want a copy of the death certificate let me know and I will email it to you.
