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.

It was John M. Sherwood's great grandfather who was a son of Daniel Sherwood (1749-1838).

Thanks so much for the tombstone photographs of J. M. Sherwood and his wife, and the information about where they're buried. Are you kin to these folks, John Sherwood's grandfather John Sherwood (c. 1791-1865) was a brother to my 4th great grandmother, Eleanor Sherwood (1776-1859, Mrs. Jeremiah Field), both being children of Daniel Sherwood III (1749-1838) and his first wife Frances Linthicum (1749-1806).

Thank you. That would be awesome.
|William Perry Deans Sr||Lutora Rentfrow (Deans)|
I am looking for Lutora Deans the sister of James Robert Deans of Wilson County. Other research has her married to a Rufus Renfrow in 1885. Could Rentfrow also be Renfrow.
Second: There are four Rentfrow's buried in the Buckhorn Cemetery, Wilson Co. Looking at each headstone they appear to have all been moved looking at the bottom of each headstones. Any thoughts or help will be greatly appreciated.
|Henry Parrish Jr.||Mary Ellen Pope Proctor|
She was Mary Ellen Page Proctor. Her parents were Mark Page and Celia Bailey. She is my 1st cousin 4 x removed.
|Helen Sharpe||Payton Finch|
Thanks for the info on Payton and his wives. I have added a note to the one in the Brantley cemetery to see the actual record.

thank you for providing so much information of my granddaddy's (George R. Edwards) family. I didn't know where William was buried. I knew Vena, Thomas, and Stephen are buried in the old Walston cemetery near my home but I found it amazing that someone (like you) had taken the time to record all this information which would be great help to others in the future.
On a side note (as it was told to me), Stephen got killed in a car wreck in vehicle swap that he had asked my grand-daddy, George, to trade with him shortly before the accident. I'm told the death really hurt grand-daddy and he named his next born son after him. (And this son, who still lives today, always carried the nickname "Leroy"
Again, thank you so much.
Andy Edwards, son of Grady Wilson Edwards.
|E Finn||Hallie Leary Pender parental note|
On Memorial# 107169364 you've inserted the note that Hallie was the daughter of John E Leary and Charity Anthony. Undoubtedly this came from her death certificate.
Unfortunately, I believe the death certificate information is incorrect. Her mother was Lucy Anthony (1833-?) (daughter of John Hill and Lucy Tunstall Anthony). Charity Anthony Pritchard (1858-1918) was a first cousin, while Charity Williams Anthony (1838-1895) was her aunt.
Do you have any more info on this Leary line? I've been looking for John & Lucy along with their sons, John and Harry for a long, long time.

Frances Ward Mumford - her birth is listed here as being North Dakota. Isn't it North Carolina?
I don't know, but seems logical. Thank you for checking.
