Bio and Links
Bio Photo 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).

I am a member of the DAR. John Jackson Morgan Sr of Nash County, NC is the first Revolutionary War patriot I have been able to prove my connection to.

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.

Old Davis Cemetery
Saw your listing for the Old Davis Cemetery in Wilson, would like to get directions to this cemetery if possible. Looking for Edna Etta Davis daughter of Battle Davis. She was married to George Robert Tomlinson. Death certificates only say family cemetery.

Eli Mercer
"Hi, I found a headstone for Eli N. Mercer, born Sept 22, 1850, died Aug 17, 1899. The headstone is in Maplewood Cemetery in Wilson County, NC. Eli shares a headstone with his wife Cornelia Privett."
Interesting date of plot purchase in Evergreen Cem, St Augustine is same date on stone in Wilson, NC. Maybe he was in Florida and body never taken back to NC. I don't know. Your call.

Try, try again :)
Well -- I read an email from you late last night, and this morning it is missing from my email account entirely! I guess that I was so tired, I deleted your email message by mistake! Please forward your message to me again at when you get a chance. I just have a very simple question for you, about Maplewood. Thanks! Martha

Please email me directly
Could you please email me directly at when you get a chance? I need to ask you a question about the headstone for Zillah Newsom which needs to be repaired.
Thanks! Martha

Thank you SO MUCH for the photo of Zillah Newsom's headstone. Now that you found it, somebody in her family will see to it that the headstone is mended and reset. Best regards, Martha
