I try to research my findagrave memorials and add maiden names to the married females. Extra information is gathered from death certificates and census records when time permits.

My genealogy research is on my SHEW, CALL, COMER & DAVIS families of NC and my husband's LANDERS, ROPER & HUME families.

Please use the EDIT button on the memorial page when you suggest family links or updates! Requests for transfers outside of findagrave guidelines will be disregarded (ignored).

Please be aware that all photos are copyrighted. If you wish to use one of my photos you must send me a request and you must credit my work.

I know there's some controversy over chalking. I go by the Association of Gravestone Studies recommendation that no chalk should be used. Check out their page of Do's and Don'ts here: Gravestone Rubbings Dos and Don'ts. Check out on their Aluminum Foil Method. It works really well!

22 Nov 2015 - Please be patient with me when you send edit requests. Between the holidays and working 48 hrs a week I don't have much extra time.

william Rufus
Hi Lynn,
Love the photos!
William Rufus is my husbands great grand uncle. I was looking in Family Search and there is a marriage record for a Rufus McCall parents William and Nancy marring a Harrett Mcalister in 1919. Did Rufus have a third wife? Also do you know the heritage of this line of Call's?
DNA tests of my husband shows he has 94% DNA from Great Britain.
I would really appreciate any help.
thanks Alice

Dear Lynn: On memorial # 27047250, I believe you posted the wrong headstone pic on this memorial.

Have been doing some research on family member Livinah "vina" Edwards and would very much like to use the tombstone picture of her daughter Christina Faye Johnson, who is married to Theodore Mercury Edwards. I have the large PATTERSON/BARRICK public tree and Bob Carter has editorship rights to my tree as we strive to make it as accurate as possible. I ALWAYS GIVE PROPER credit to whom performs the land survey and provides the picture to assist with the research of our family member and love for their history. Because yours appears to be copyrighted, I simply wanted to request your permission.

You are welcome for the photo, I have the original. You may use it if you need.
I have some others to place as well...when I locate them!

Are you related to this family? Lillie Martha was my grandmother!

I don't know which Davis family you research.
I left an old family photo on James Coleman Davis page
you might find interesting
