Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am descended through the Presley/Pressley, Pope, Clontz, Rogers, Cook, Franklin, Henson, and other families who have been in Haywood County for at least since the mid 1800's. I work full time, and genealogy is a favorite pastime of mine (although I enjoy it enough that I think IT could be my full time job!).

Thank you for taking Sarah's photo. I appreciate the time and effort you took to photograph her marker.

RE: Doctor Hardy Pressley
I thank you so much for the reply. And here is what I think - this is all a tangled mysterious mess. You didn't do it and I didn't do it. But wow, it is hard to try and figure all this out. It seems they were all having 12 or 15 children each for a while there. And the name Shirley throws some off. And I can't understand why they would use the name Doctor for 2 different children. And now I really understand why you said "happy hunting". And it "appears" that several sisters of the Bennett family married several brothers of the Pressley family. And is it one "S" or two? Didn't they bother to correct the spelling if it was incorrect? I'm puzzled!
I wonder if anyone has all the true, correct, and complete records..... ???
Kindest Regards,

Doctor Hardy Pressley
Andrew and Nancy Pressley are not the parents of Doctor Hardy Pressley.

David Swain and Sarah Lovinia Pressley are the parents of Doctor Hardy Pressley.

Please see my memorial for my great-grandfather, Doctor Hardy Pressley. His death certificate is pictured there.

Thank you and Kind regards, NSJ #48496025

There is a delay problem with Find A Grave emails, so I'm just now getting your transfer requests. Long's Chapel was already promised to someone, so they are being transferred to June Taylor McClure, along with Locust Field, Crawford-Ray and Bon-a-venture (old). I've transferred several to you from Mount Zion, and I'll work through the rest of your requests, transferring to you anything that has not been promised to another contributor. Thanks, LG

RE: Sorry to hear you're stepping away, glad to help though.
No, I didn't keep your list. I'll transfer them as long as they have not been committed to someone else first. This wasn't to be a free-for-all. I was transferring to members I have worked with for a very long time. LG

Transfer requests should be made through the Edit tab.

Field Rock & Greenwood Photos
Hi! Thanks for moving Laura Lance Norris to Cathys Creek BC Cemetery! That leaves only 3 memorials in Greenwood without photos.

Removed the field rock photo, and Norris/Whitmire gravestone photos from Laura's record.

Put in a Photo Request for Cathys Creek BC Cemetery so somebody will eventually put a photo of Laura's gravesite there.

Field Rock at Greenwood Cemetery/Calvert-Rosman, NC
Hi! Would you have time to take a look at Laura Lance Norris, Find A Grave Memorial# 94442970 and
Unknown Field Rock "#10" WHITMIRE NORRIS, Find A Grave Memorial# 124683333.

There is a big field rock right outside the Whitmire/Norris family plots, and there are no other "field rocks" in this general area.

Hopefully, you are a family member and might know if the field rock is Laura Lance Norris, the "missing" 2nd wife of James H. "Jim" Norris. We did a 100% photo session of the entire cemetery, and no gravestone for Laura Lance Norris was found. We are hoping the field rock is her :)

Please let us know what you think.
