RUTH SCARBOROUGH
Hello!

I received your message. I do not know how to message privately. At any rate, thank you in advance for going to the Scarborough Cemetery. I have no clue if Mrs. Ruth's death date has been engraved on the stone. By chance, do you know any of her family? If you do, you could contact them before you make the trip.

Also, yes, you are right about the photos. I messaged Connie & Larry Scarborough. They live in Texas & are related to Jeff, Ruth, & Anita Scarborough but have never met them. Larry took the pictures on a trip to Wake County in 2010, as he was doing research on family history. I contacted him after visiting with Mr. Jeff about 1 1/2 weeks ago. I had never seen my friend, Anita's, grave & wanted to thank him for posting the picture. He then explained how he & Mr. Jeff were related & told me that someone had posted Mrs. Ruth's death on findagrave.com. I looked at the page you created & told him there was only a picture of the Scarborough Cemetery entrance, so he added the picture of the triple stone.

MRS. RUTH SCARBOROUGH
Hello!

Thank you for posting Mrs. Ruth Scarborough's final resting place/obituary on www.findagrave.com. I grew up Free Will Baptist & went to high school with her daughter, Anita. I played "My Tribute" at her funeral, & she & her parents have meant a lot to me.

I would like to make one request. Could you go back to the cemetery & make a close-up picture of the stone when her date of death has been engraved? I would like to print out this picture & give it to her husband, Jeff. He is mentally challenged at this point in his life & is unsure of where Mrs. Ruth is. This may help. Thank you!

RE: Barnes Aycock in Aycock Cemetery in Wayne County NC
I'm glad you enjoy the photos. I only discovered this Find a Grave site in 2012 and added a photo for my Dad back then. This week I came back to it to see if my Mom had been added. She passed in 2012. Who is your Dad related to on the Aycock side? My mom was the youngest of Henry Carlyle Hooks and Mary Aycock Hooks. She grew up in Fremont and met my Dad after the war in 1948. He was a Marine and after the Korean War was transferred to California where I and my siblings were born and raised. They are both now buried in Big Rock Tennessee where my Dad was from. I still live in California so I can't visit their graves very often.

I do have a question about my grandmother's (Mary Aycock Hooks) grave. I assume you are out at the cemetery every so often. When my grandmother was buried in 1953, my mother brought a dozen large seas shells to place on her grave. When she returned years later, they were gone. No one could ever tell her what had become of them (other than being stolen haha). I was born a year after Mary passed but my mom talked about this often as I was growing up and I actually saw the shells in a picture taken at the funeral.

Anyway, thanks for all you do in operating this page~

RE: Barnes Aycock in Aycock Cemetery in Wayne County NC
Actually the link take me to Mary's husband, Henry Carlyle Hooks Sr. Her son, Henry Carlyle Hooks Jr. is buried close by or even next to his father. He passed away in 1976.

Mary's children included:

Henry Carlyle Hooks Jr.
Ruth Aycock Hooks Lacy passed in 2012 cremated
Helen Gold Hooks Mathis (my mother) 1924 -2012.

Helen is buried in Smith Cemetery in Big Rock TN next to my father Frederick Eli Mathis (there is a memorial for Find a Grave for him. Can she be added to his page?

Interesting historical note on Barnes Aycock. While fighting in the Civil War, he was called back home to bury both of his parents Calvin and Cherry Aycock who died 5 days from each other from an outbreak of smallpox. Barnes was 17 years old.

Thank you

Barnes Aycock in Aycock Cemetery in Wayne County NC
I came upon my great grandfather's grave on this site Barnes Aycock). Under family history there are 2 marriages as well as children. His second wife, Menville Howell Peel Aycock had a daughter named Mary Aycock who would go on to marry Henry Carlyle Hooks Jr. Mary Aycock is my grandmother and she is also buried in the Aycock Cemetery, but she is not listed here on this site. Her grave is toward the front and has a flat headstone. She passed away in 1953. Could she be added? under teh family history you have posted? Her youngest daughter, Helen Hooks Mathis was my mother.

Thank you
