Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born and raised in South Carolina, but moved to Europe in 2007 to marry the love of my life. We lived in Northern Germany until 2012, when we moved back to America to be closer to my family.. and were blessed with a daughter in February 2013. My life is full and very busy now. Being a mother is the journey of a lifetime, and one I never thought I'd get to take.. and it's been wonderful so far (even with the lack of sleep).

My grandmother got me interested in family history about 12 years ago, and graciously allowed me to be the keeper of her research.. she had been tracing our roots for over 30 years.

Now that she has passed on, I have become the Family Historian and the keeper of records. It is a life-long journey that continues to fascinate, amaze and sometimes puzzle me.. but the path has taught me the value of patience and perseverance - both valuable life lessons.

I have expanded the foundations of my grandmother's research over the years, and now have a large database that grows ever larger! If anyone is interested in my family branches, I will be happy to share and exchange information.

Research branches include (in A-Z order):

- North Carolina -
Albright, Collins, Efland, Fowler, Grant, Gulledge, Haney, Harrell, Hasty, Helms, Rogers, Smith, Stegall, and Swanner.

- South Carolina -
Cameron, Dean, Elliott, Grant, Gulledge, Hasty, Horton, Hough, Hunter, Kershaw, Nelson, Nettles, Peach, Peavy, Rogers, Roscoe, Smith, Steen, Truesdale/Truesdel, West, Williams and Young.

- Tennessee -
Albright, Carroll, Ford, Foust/Faust, Gibbs, Graves, Irwin, Loy, Miller, Ridenour, Rosier/Rozier, Sharp, Snodderly, Steiner/Stoner, Stooksbury, Tillman and Wilson.

I may be missing a few, but will update them as I find others.

Joe Stephens
Mt. Moriah Cemetery
An open air meeting will be held at the site of the old Mount Moriah Church, inside Anderson County Park, at 11:00 on Sunday March 22nd. Nestled in a wooded area, overlooking the Clinch River
channel of Norris Reservoir, the church site is situated at a high elevation just below the forks of the Clinch and Powell Rivers. Few graves remain in the cemetery that surrounds the site of the old church as most were moved by TVA when the Norris Lake was formed. Mt. Moriah, the first church in what is now Anderson County, was established in 1800 by Revolutionary War veteran Henry Ridenour. Over the years his descendants have multiplied and the Ridenour name continues to be common in the area. Unimaginable as it may seem to some today the modern community of Murrayville and the depopulated communities of Agee, Mount Moriah and Walnut Grove were fairly close to each other before the water rose behind the dam. An old fashion camp meeting style service is planned at the site consecrated in prayer by the pioneers and successive generations. Local historian Joe Stephens, a direct descendant of Revolutionary War Veteran Henry Ridenour will be presenting a historical program. Readers with roots in the vicinity of the forks, anyone interested in local history, and those who would like to participate an old fashion outdoor meeting are encouraged to attend. For more info contact Joe Stephens at

McLre-Quinlen-McMillan Cemetery
Just wanted you to know that you duplicated this cemetery and all the memorials. The duplicates needs to be deleted. I have sent individual edit requests. The McLure's have been moved to another cemetery.

My record show the subject Partin was born in Wake County, NC. He is my 4th cousin, once removed. We trace our lineage back to Robert Partin of the Jamestown, Virginia Colony, 1609.

Edna Watson
You sent me a correction for Edna Watson. I have her maiden name as Byrd, but her parents are Carter. Do you know which is correct? Not sure where the Byrd came from. Thanks for your help. Vonna

Ingram Family Cemetery
I just wanted you to know that somehow the Ingram Family Cemetery was duplicated and you created several duplicate memorials in the duplicate cemetery. Now that the two cemeteries have been merged I have sent you SAC's on the duplicates.

Hasty/Brigstock Memorials
Hello again,
Just checked this morning.There are 2 Salem United Methodist Churches in Prince George County, VA., one in Burrowsville with 66 memorials and one located at 19312 Templeton Road, Prince George County, Virginia. The Salem United Methodist Church site located in Dinwiddie County, Virginia, is the same church and a duplicate of Salem UMC on Templeton road, Prince George County, Virginia. Carson, Virginia, is split by a railroad track which serves as the county line between Dinwiddie and Prince George Counties. While the Prince George County side receives mail at a Carson address because the post office is located there, they are actually in Prince George County, Virginia. Salem UMC where the Winfred and Lettie Hasty are buried and their daughter Frances Brigstock is located in Prince George County. If you search for the Salem UMC in Prince George County, you will see that there are about 312 memorials and I would suggest that you move your memorials to that location. I am going to ask Find A Grave to merge the 2 sites and delete the Salem UMC site located in Dinwiddie County. I was kin to Lettie Leonard Hasty and Frances Brigstock. A lot of good work you are doing and I am sure that you would want your memorials in the correct location. Thanks again, Wilkie

Hasty/Brigstock Memorials
Just looked at the Salem United Methodist Church site on Find A Grave where you have memorials posted for the above family individuals. You have the correct church cemetery, but the wrong location. The picture of the church is of Salem United Methodist Church located near Carson, Virginia, but in Templeton District, of Prince George County not Dinwiddie. There are about 7 memorials on the site to which you posted your memorial tributes. If you go to the Salem United Methodist Church Cemetery, Prince George County, site, you will see about 312 memorials. Actually, I have the cemetery burial records and the site is totally up to date as far as memorial go. Suggest you move your memorials to the correct site. If you have any questions, let me know. Wilkie, Find A Grave
