|Bio and Links|
As a woman with very deep Southern US roots, how can I not love genealogy? Most of my life I have enjoyed wandering in cemeteries, particularly old ones - pondering over descriptions, inscriptions, ages, etc.|
I'm especially interested in these surnames:
Gibson, McCormick, Brown, Tucker, Wells, Riley, Halstead, Cheshire ...
Renfroe, Owens, Leonard, Hudson, Lobaugh ...
Melanie aka Mama, Dr, Bear, sister, daughter, daughter-in-law, cousin, Auntie, etc ...!

|Bob Carter||RE: Elizabeth White|
Elizabeth's mother (Margaret Montgomery) was not listed, so I added her name and she is 126942115. Parents were Oscar F. E. (or F. F.) Poole and Margaret Montgomery.
Elizabeth Adeline Poole White died in Winston-Salem, Forsyth County, NC.
Here is a link to Elizabeth's brother and his marriage:
|Bob Carter||RE: Charlie White|
Since there is no record on my Find A Grave account when I leave a suggestion on the Find A Grave memorial, you'll have to refresh my memory on which memorial is was and which Find A Grave memorials I suggested as his parents.

Her parents were James Emmanuel and Eveline Gertrude (Monk) Riley. Both buried at Wesley Chapel. Her first husband was Alex Mathis and he is buried at Skipperville and last husband was Dan Strickland. I do not know where Dan is buried.

I just uploaded a picture for an ELIZA BYERLY, wife of HIRAM BYERLY, as shown on her stone. Her birthdate is 29 Aug 1829, died 8 Oct 1901.
Your Anna Elizabeth Zimmerman Byerly at the same cemetery has Eliza's birthdate but different death date.
Is it possible Eliza and Anna Elizabeth are same person? Was wondering if you would like to doublecheck Anna's death date to make sure. Another possibility is that they were twins.

I posted a problem notice regarding Phebe Halsted. Neither First Presbyterian Church nor St. John's Episcopal Church record a "Phebe Halsted being buried in either location.
Do yo have any more information?
I thought you and the family would find this interesting. In Elizabeth there is a street named "Halsted Road." It runs to the border between Elizabeth and Union Township. Once it crosses into Union the name changes to "Halstead Road." There is no apparent reason for this change in name since it is the same street.
Perhaps the Halsteds were mainly from Elizabeth and the Halsteads were mainly from Union Township.
I posted a problem notice with regard to George Halsted. There is no record of his being buried at First Presbyterian Church. There is a record of a George Halsted being buried at St. John's Church but he died in 1825 at age 2 years, 3 months.
Do you have any other information?
