George Towery Ledford
Cemetery: Sugar Fork Baptist Church/Franklin, NC

Hello, You have George's birthplace as Virginia but my research indicates it was actually Rowan County, NC. George's grandfather William Ledford left Virginia in the late 1750's and moved to Carraway Creek, Rowan, NC. Rowan was split up later into several smaller counties including Davidson.

George's father was born there - John A. Ledford (Feb 20, 1750 Rowan County NC to February 27, 1826 Davidson NC)and then later George.

Thanks for all you do putting this information on line. It's a great source for me. Have a great day.

Robert (Bob) Wiggins Memorial #21079965
There are two separate Robert Wiggins in Swain County, NC area in the 1910s-1920s. Robert Wiggins (Memorial #21079965) who has been connected to Gertrude Gibson (Memorial # 126735456) is not the correct Robert Gibson for her. This Robert (Bob) Gibson has a death certificate which states that his parents are Sherrill Gibson and Laura Queen. It also states that he never married. Sherrill & Laura Wiggins are also listed in this same cemetery (Coweeta Baptist Church). There are other records that show him connected to this Sherrill and Laura Wiggins.
Gertrude Gibson should actually be connected to Robert Washington Wiggins (Memorial # 126735456). If you look at the headstone of both Robertís and Gertrudeís, it will show a similar headstone, both located at the Swain Memorial Park Cemetery. Death records and cemetery records support that Robert W Wiggins is also the one connected to the parents, Moses Albert Wiggins and Mary Rains.

McCoy Family Cemetery
I am the Great Great Granddaughter of Dr Merald Leonidas McCoy who was the son of John Julius McCoy and Myra Malissa (Crisp) McCoy. I suspect that Malissa & Julius J McCoy and possibly many more of my McCoy ancestors are buried in The McCoy Family Cemetery. Would you know who owns the land Malissa and Julius J McCoy lived on so that I may try to contact who owns that land and cemetery today? I am hoping for pictures of the Headstones there or a list of who all is buried there. Its in Burningtown , Macon, NC. I have a picture of The McCoys and Dowells on the property there at their home..Myra Malissa Crisp McCoy is one in the is Lolita Dean..etc...and on the other side of the porch its labeled Dowell's..I see that you added some Dowell's to this find a grave cemetery and its got me wondering if these are the Dowells buried there..with the McCoys
