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.

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: http://www.gravestonestudies.org/faq.htm#Some Gravestone Rubbings Dos and Don'ts. Check out http://www.ncgenweb.us/newhanover/cem1.html on their Aluminum Foil Method. It works really well!

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

84050777 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.
