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.

|Penny Smith Warren||Pennie Elizabeth Bowen|
I am new to this website.....and finding it so interesting. My grandmother was Pennie Elizabeth Price Bowen. She was married several times. her First husband was William Paul Bowen (buried in the Bowen Cemetery in Williamston, NC -Martin county. they had a daughter named Pennie Elizabeth Bowen also buried in the Bowen Cemetery. She was born 1930 and died in 1931. I saw you had posted her information on here. I wanted to know where you got the information regarding her parents names bc I saw you had listed her mother as Mary Elizabeth "Pennie" Bowen and I never knew My grandmother's first name as "Mary"....her birth certificate has Pennie and her death certificate has Pennie....just curious.....if I found something new about my grandmother...I LOVE finding out new things about my family.

Thanks, Deborah, for Cora's headstone photo. I was so hoping Mr. Bell might have been with her. He's a puzzle.

Thanks so much for the headstone photos! It's much appreciated. Your bio reminded me of my beginnings in genealogy in 1986. In 1988, while living in NYC, I took a month long genealogy trip to the West Coast to meet all my newly-found cousins and to visit family. I taped all my interviews with everyone. Just finished transcribing 14 tapes. It was a treat to hear all their voices as they are all deceased now. And there's no one left to tell their stories. I'm so grateful I took that trip and had the foresight to tape record my interviews. Good luck on your future hunt for your ancestors!

You are most welcome. Thank you for all of your contributions to Find A Grave. It's a great help to archivists - and has certainly been a great aid to my family trees.
|Cheryl Justice||RE: Martin County Cemetery|
Please let me know if you find that cemetery. Her name is Bessie Comb Drew 1895-1970. The death certificate has her as black. She may be possibly buried in a family cemetery. Appreicate any help you can provide. Thanks!
