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.

RE: Etheridge brothers

Andrew Jackson Etheridge and Stephen Barry Etheridge were both shot on the same day (August 15, 1946) by Harvey Hobson. Stephen died at the scene that day. According to my mother Andrew died within the week but she can't recall the exact day (his headstone only shows the year - I don't know what the death certificate says). Harvey Hobson was tried and convicted of both murders and sentenced to 40 years but he didn't serve the entire sentence.

What lighthouse is in your photo?.... it looks a lot like Hatteras.

RE: Zephaniah Bateman
Thank you for writing. We are going to the Outer Banks with the whole clan soon and going to Old Brown Marsh Presbyterian Church Cemetery in Bladen Co..... but maybe next year we could go and maybe help clean up a bit.... it would be great for the grandchildren to be a part of that.
Thanks for the work you are doing and for finding our family in particular!
In Gratitude,

Thanks Deborah. Yes, I did mean that Alsey R. Taylor. Interesting that your Alsey Wade Taylor has the middle name Wade. My father and grandfather were Wade Hampton Taylor Sr. and Jr. However, I don't see any other hint that the two Taylor lines were related. Who Knows? Frank

Deborah, hi
Might you have any information other than the little on re Alsey Taylor's parents (Andrew Jackson Taylor and Harriet nee Eatman); uncle Simeon Taylor, A J's brother; or grandparents (Larry and Elizabeth Taylor)? Simeon is my great, great grandfather. Larry, Simeon's father is 3 greats! Many thanks for any help you can give me. I'll be in Wilson, NC in late Sept. looking for more clues. Best, Frank

RE: Edna De Mers
Don't know what to say about the Social Security files, and apparently none of us noticed that the date of death was wrong on her footstone.

My mother did not die in Wake County, although she did live there. She died in Madison County, Alabama, on November 17, 1987. She was buried in Wilson a week later, on the day before Thanksgiving.
