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.

RE: Tomlinson, Lamm, etc.
Thank you, Deborah, We visited the Rock Hill Cemetery at Milbournie FWB Church & were delighted to meet another distant cousin, Dennis Willamson, who showed us around. It's somewhat different from when we visited about 20 years ago. We found the other direct ancestors you entered, Lamm & Tomlinson, so happy to know their stones are there. Saw probably your Grover Cemetery on the way toward Raleigh. All the best, Carole

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.
