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.

When contacting me about a memorial or photo I have added, PLEASE INCLUDE THE MEMORIAL NUMBER.

Charlie Bissette, Memorial # 103093490

I am contacting you to ask for permission to use this photo from, Memorial# 103093490. Also, if I find any other photos of my relativesí markers that you have taken, would this permission extend to those photos? I only want to put them into my family tree, and do not intend to use them for any other purpose. Thank you for taking and posting these photos for those of us who are unable to visit the cemeteries ourselves. Your hard work and effort are greatly appreciated!

Thank you,
Angela Skelton

I was trying to find his wife when I found the NC death index:
Burial Location: Cremation out-of-state
Source Vendor: North Carolina State Center for Health Statistics
HA....maybe a little in each state.
