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: John Robert White 1873 - 1932
I found this through death records, the Death Certificates of Sr and Jr make a direct connection, then on Jrs Death Cert. , John R. White III is the informant. He is Buried in Danville Va. There is also Albert C. and John R. Jr In Danville as Barbers on the census record. (Their sister Hattie White Roberson is buried there too) Its a tangle , but it all seems to be there. You have access to my Ancestry tree i think... If you want ill give you links, copies etc of what ever i have you need.

You are correct, he was attached to the wrong father. I have corrected it. Thanks for bringing it to my attention! I am always glad to correct anything that is wrong. . . . . and it surely was, wrong.

Hey Deborah:

Amazed by all of the contributions that you have made. Thank you for taking such nice photos of the Moses Rountree plot and headstones. I have one VERY old photograph of Moses Rountree and would like to add it. There is a max on the photos added, so I was wondering if mine could replace. Thanks for considering,

Robert R., Wilson

Hi Deborah,

My procedure for duplicate memorials is to use the earliest date and request the contributor who created the duplicate to delete it.

Edward Fitzgerald is not a close relative and I have transferred him to you. So you, the contributor who created the duplicate and Find A Grave administration can decide which one to delete.

Thanks for the information.

I owe you a favor.

I live in central NJ. Let me know if you need pictures of a grave or such near me.

RE: Langley King Respess, Grave site

I believe that Langley King Respess was buried in either Beaufort or Washington Counties. He is listed in the 1860 census for Beaufort county. He doesn't appear in the 1870 census.

I am working to expand my inventory of search tools. Is there a link to the cemetery survey that you searched? I found WPA links to cemetery surveys in the 1930s but I didn't see Langley King listed. His son, George Washington Respess, is buried in the Baynor cemetery in Beaufort County. I expected to find Langley there but did not.

I would like to go on a field trips this spring if I can find his and other family grave sites. Langley King is just one of many family members on my list for eastern NC.

My grandfather Thomas Fulcher changed the spelling of the family name to Respass, however, it is still pronounced "Respess".

Deborah S.

Thank you again for setting up the Respass portion at the Hamilton NC Cemetery. I'll take good care of it.

Have you come across a gravesite for Langley King Respess?

Langley King Respess was the grandfather of Thomas Fulcher Respass whose gravesite you photographed in Hamilton Cemetery. I suspect that Langley was buried in Beaufort County, NC since he shows up in early 1800 census records for Beaufort, County.
