|Bio and Links|
Although I've been a member of Find A Grave for more than 5 years, its been just recently that I've contributed to the site or done any research from cemeteries listed on the site of mine and my husband's families.|
I was born in Northampton Co., NC at the farm of my maternal grandparents, Millard Eugene "Genie" Bridgers and Virgie Janeva Draper Bridgers on what is now the dirt portion of Bridgers Rd. My parents moved to Portsmouth, VA in the early 1940's and I lived there until my marriage. Currently I live in Yorktown, VA.
Shortly after I began researching my ancestors in 1998, I tried (in vain) to locate the graves of my paternal great grandparents, Enos Johnson & Frances Lavenia Baugham Johnson. I knew the burial location for the other 3 sets of great grandparents (and a few further back grandparents) and really wanted to find the Johnson's burial location.
After searching many of the family cemeteries in Northampton Co., NC, I realized there was a wealth of knowledge from grave markers that probably would not be available to researchers in years to come due to elements, abandonment of sites and family members' knowledge. So, I began visiting the sites armed with tools, notebooks and pencils, tape recorders, bug spray, blaze orange vest, water, paper towels, trash bags, etc, copying the info from the grave markers. Sure wish I'd taken pictures of all of them!!!
After a 12 year period of "graving", I decided it was time to share my info with others and donated a 4 volume set of my cemetery books to the library and to the museum in Jackson, Northampton Co., NC. The set contains over 300 family, church and town cemeteries indexed alphabetically by names of roads in Northampton Co., NC, with a few cemeteries from adjoining Hertford Co., NC, as some of "my families" were buried there.
Just recently (2012), I began submitting info on the Find A Grave site and hope to continue submitting more info in the future.
*** Jan 2014
Have revisited some of the cemeteries from which I recorded info, as indicated above. I have added photos of some of the headstones as well as pictures of individuals for some of the memorials I created as well as pics of stones and individuals to many memorials others created.
Actively involved with this site and hoping to continue sharing many of the over 300 cemeteries from which I recorded info from grave markers.

|Shirley Stewart Milford||Information on Alfred Merriel Stewart, Sr of N.C.|
Dot, I realize this is a 'shot in the dark' but by any chance do you have any Stewarts in the records you have collected - and in particular an Alfred Merriel Stewart? He was my great, great grandfather, father of my great grandfather Alfred Merriel Stewart, Jr, who was born Sep 30,1841 in Anson County, N. C. It is said that ten days after my great grandfather was born his father died, on Oct 10, 1841. But there seems to be NO information to be found on how, where or burial of Alfred Sr.
In 1854 Alfred Sr's widow, my great great grandmother, Catherine Richardson Stewart, and her 8 children loaded their mule-drawn covered wagon(s), joined a group led by Elder Hosea Preslar, crossed the Smoky Mountains, rivers and streams and settled in Henderson Co in west Tennessee. BUT no one seems to have _any_ information on Alfred Sr. or his background. He is my brick wall!
If you have any information on him at all, I would really appreciate it.

I used the edit tab on his memorial to send you a link request. If I have done it incorrectly or you would prefer another method, please let me know. I have more children to add, but I want to get it right first. Thanks

|Jesse Macon Lawrence Jr.||George Thomas Johnson|
First thanks again for all the work you have done on this site. I have a problem with George Thomas Johnson #86201587, there seem to be two living at the same time in same area. I support the data you submitted for 86201587 and is my kin. The other is reported married to Catherine Ann "Kate" Powell in Martin County, do not have parents of this later George Thomas Johnson. The civil war stone dates for 86201587 is different from the dates you have in Bio. Do you have any explanation for this and do you have any info for the second George Thomas Johnson. Is the stone for tagged to the wrong one? Help please!

Thank you for all the updates. I got them all linked together.
I may have entered John's year of birth wrong. I entered these memorials from a transcription someone took of the cemetery. I have found lots of errors and inconsistances. I have been working on them gradually. Alot of people in that area you can not find death records for. I suspect they may have been in VIrginia.

The memorials for Melba Elizabeth Barrett Woodard & William Adrian Griffin have been updated with the info you provided. Thank you!
