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.

Robert Brantley was my father and I had not been back to Woodlawn Cemetery since his burial in 1989. My wife and I visited the cemetery on June 28 and could not locate my father's grave. The only information I have about the location of his grave is what you have provided on Findagrave and that is Section B. Do you have any more information to help me find his grave or do you know whom I can contact to help me find it. I am 77 years of age and I would like to visit his grave while I am still able to do so.
Thank you for any help you can provide.

Sorry that I am just now responding. How about the third photo showing the short headstone with initials M.R. and F.A.R., the loose bricks and the rusty fence? I will replace it with the restored photograph of Moses Rountree. I have been thinking about paying to have that fence replaced anyway.

Thank you so much! When I saw DAR in your bio, I felt it would be okay, but I always ask for permission. Thank you again. I'll let you know when I receive the originals.

Another request to use your picture for a DAR application (forgot to add in the first message that I will note that you took the picture in my source). This one is for:

I am seeking permission to use the picture of the stone of Mittie Williams Winstead for a DAR application. The prospective member took their own picture, but yours is much clearer and with the close up, able to be read. May I have your permission please?
Mittie Williams Winstead.
