Bio and Links
Bio Photo A ninth generation American, I've always found cemeteries interesting, peaceful and relaxing. Please notify me if I've made a mistake on any memorials I post. No one is perfect, least of all me. I will not respond to rude and disrespectful demands. If I have a photo of a headstone that is better than the one already posted, I will post my photo. I do not post to "build my numbers". I will not revisit cemeteries and retake photos that have my shadow on them.
I am a Find a Grave volunteer because I enjoy visiting cemeteries recording the history of those who have gone before us so as to be of a benefit of those who cannot visit the cemeteries in person to pay their respects. Be nice.

Have a great day!

Grover Byrd Cemetery
I am a descendant of Charlie and Emma Ann Gouge Barnett. I was wondering if you could tell me how to get to the cemetery and do I need permission before i go to it? If I need permission who would I need to talk to? Thank you and lookin forward to hearing from you.

Not sure what this is about. I wasn't doing any since last year in Delaware and my name is not on the persons listing.

Thanks, Sheila

Vianna Tipton
My great grandmother was Vain "Viannah" ? Tipton born about 1843
& died March 12, 1925 in Red Hill, NC. She married James Arrowood but had my grandmother Mary before she married by Garrett Street. She worked for him in his grocery story in Buleadean, NC. My Dad always said his granddad Garrett was as good to him as he was his own children and grandchildren by his wife Rebecca.
Because his mother Mary was born out of wedlock I have little information on Viann, or Garrett. I did find the grave of Garrett Street and have a picture of it. Do you recall when you recorded the information on Vain if she has a stone with a marker. I would love to have a picture of it since I have none of her as I do all my other grandparents. Do you have any idea where I could find a picture of Garrett Street. I found him buried in the Garland Cem. of the Presbyterian church.
I am a professional storyteller and historian in my retired days and love the adventure of digging up my roots and the stories that come with them. No sure if you might be kin to this family or not but would love any stories you could share. I grew up listening to my grandfather Francis tell me stories about Toe Creek and Bad Creek, Nc.

RE: Mary Hickman #135477068
You are welcome. Next time I go to the cemetery I'm going to take water and a brush and see if I can gently clean it to get a better shot of the inscription for you.

Thanks Ronald..for changing the picture and stuff.
I had the chnnce to look at your web page and thought it was cool. That area where you live is the same area as some of my relatives on my dads side (Jones) come from. Also the Short family.
Its always interesting to see what we will learn about our ancesters.
Thanks Much

RE: Mary Hickman #135477068
I found her! Go to her page to see the photos. I also photographed Joseph Pratt, Georgeanna " Georgie" Yearsley Hickman and Elizabeth May "Lizzie" Hickman since they are all together. The stone to the left of Mary's has deteriorated greatly. Also, Mary's was hard to read due to mildew on it. Next time I go to the cemetery I will take some cleaning supplies and see if it cleans up enough to take a better photo.

Lovada "Lovey" (Ray) Bailey
I thought I saw Lovada died in 1890 magnified her headstone and is it 1890. The original created put her death date as 1898. Typo error I guess. Mem# 34883213.
Thanks for checking this
