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.

I am the youngest son of Renford Wendell Peed Jr. I found this website, when I google my daddy`s name. I saw you had came to Wilson North Carolina and went to Buckhorn Cemetary and took pictures of the cemetary and also a picture of my daddy`s headstone. I found that very interesting. Thank you very much.
|Becky Soapes||Oops! - Reuben Thomas Rogerson|
I tried to delete or correct my post, but could not. I owe you an apology Deborah. It looks like his parents were Ransom Rogerson 1809 – 1880
and Mom: Harriett Hattie Ward 1813 – 1880
I am confused. I need to study this some more.
I guess they each named a child after them.
|Becky Soapes||Reuben Thomas Rogerson|
Hi Deborah. Thank you for your interest in my family! Reuben is the father of all the calculated children listed. He is not the son of Ransom & Harriet - they are siblings:)
His wife was Caroline Matilda Cherry.
Vhildren - not in order of birth
Daughter - Harriet Louvenia Rogerson Harris
Daughter - Ernest Allevia Rogerson Ward
Son - Ransom Leonogy "Lonnie" Rogerson
Son - Levi William "Will" Rogerson
Son - Eli Thomas Rogerson
Son - Joseph Jourden ROGERSon
The last name was Rogerson, but was later shortened
to Rogers. My mom, aunt & uncles had no idea until I told them.

Im just wondering how the name "William" was attached to this headstone... Its my Great great grandfather and no one knows what his "real" name is. Do you know if this is a typo or was he actually called William instead of Robert??

I've made the corrections to "Jake's" memorial and was wondering if you are related to him and his parents (Brittain, Brittin, Britton - spelled so many different ways) and Winiford Byrum Edwards. Britton was my 3rd great uncle,the brother of my 2d great grandfather, Jonas Edwards, and the son of Britton Edwards II.
