Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am an amateur genealogist interested in local history. Born and raised in New Jersey, I'm a "Jersey Shore" girl that still loves the beach! My husband and I relocated to North Carolina in 2001 and and we just love our new adopted home.

I try and photograph local cemeteries; and whenever I add a photo to Find-A-Grave I try and add some sort of biographical information on the person. Having done the research on my own family, I know how helpful any clue can be in tracing ancestors. I welcome any changes or additions to information I've submitted, and will gladly transfer ownership to any family member requesting. Please contact me through the EDIT tab on any memorial I added by using "Suggest a correction or provide additional information".

RE: Nancy Sowerbutt
No, I have no information that I have not already posted. I am reading the OBIT's at this time and that is where the information is coming from.
I have previously been at Pompton Reformed and photographed and posted all existing and legible stones. They may be there and I missed their stone. I am unable at this time to make cemetery visits. Also, I am not related to your family.
Sorry I couldn't be more help/

Memorial #101112865 Martha Curtis Rand
Martha Curtis Rand was born on February 22, 1818. She immigrated with her family to Franklin (now Colbert)County Alabama in 1826 where she married to Reece Cook (1814/1878) in 1836 at the age of 18. She died the following year, after only one year of marriage, on July 29, 1813 in Vicksburg, Mississippi, and she was buried in the Cook Cemetery in Culkin, Warren County, Mississippi.

Please make corrections.

RE: Tempy Ann Hollingsworth
I am so sorry that I caused this confusion. After reading your message, I went back to my original research, and you are right. Harriet O. was Tempy Ann's mother. This will teach me not to rely on memory, no matter how sure I am that I am right.

Tempy Ann Hollingsworth
I appreciate all the information that this contains, but I have a correction. Tempy Ann was not Harriet O. Cockrell Hollingsworth's daughter. She was Andrew J. Hollingsworth's second wife's daughter. Harriet died soon after her only child was born, and Andrew married Penelope Cockrell. All the rest of the children are hers.

RE: # 35746293 Tommie Mial
Thanks. I realize that sometimes people take up to 6 months or longer prior to mounting a headstone, and when they order after the passage of time, they provide the engraver with info off the top of their head, verses verifying via official documents. I just belieive hid Dad was grieving and couldn't think properly. Blessings, Sandi :-).

# 35746293 Tommie Mial

Hi there :::waving::: I recognize his headstone says he died Jan 6, 1914, but per his official DC, it says he died Jan 6, 1915 and was buried Jan 7, 1915. His father, Hilary Mial is the informant for the DC

first, I am not related, simply found his obituary on the same page of the newspaper while looking for someone else, so I typed it out and posted it.

Thanks so much for putting all of these on Find A Grave. Mine are Spader.
There are a few duplicates. I've sent a note to the Spader duplicate people.
Again many thanks for all your work
