Charles William Snyder Hi, thanks for your message. The "two different dates and alpha/numeric codes" you asked about about are from the Martin County Genealogical Society's Obituary Index. I have added expanded it on the memorial and added more information on him. Best wishes: http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=133347903
There is a large prevalence of children at this church, and the office was very quick to get rid of me. I think they were (and, as a father, I don't blame them) suspicious of a strange man coming around asking about gravestones. Sad to say, but a woman may have better luck that I did - I fear if I go back and hunt around for the plaque that they may call the authorities on me.
RE: James Downing Dee, Thanks for getting back to me. I think I still have the book so hopefully someone will contact me. I would like for this to be in the Downing family. I know I would treasure it were it my family line.
RE: james downing Dee, I have no relationship with this Line however I was given a book that belonged to the Downing Family and was trying to make contact with a member of the family. There were many names listed in the book along with dates. No one has contacted me regarding the book. If you know of a family member that would like to have the book for family value contact me.
RE: Robert Johnson Hello.....yes, my grandfather was Robert Henry Johnson & was born in Tenn. He is buried near Sylva, NC. My great grandfather was Elisha Johnson & I can not find any other relatives after that. My line just stops. Let me know if I can be of any assistance or if you can help me. Thanks again, Robert
