Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have recorded the birth date, death date, and last address of your family members. Now it is your turn to edit and enhance their memorials, for the enjoyment of future generations.

Thank you so much to the people who generously donate their time and money to provide information, photographs, and floral contributions to people who may never be able to thank them. I especially appreciate those who remember this is much bigger than ourselves and consistently maintain their memorials in a professional manner, treating others volunteers in the respectful way in which they like to be treated.

Steward for these memorials when I pass

FINDAGRAVE MEMORIAL TRANSFER POLICY

First, Determine if you really need the memorial transferred to you for management. Transferring of management should only be requested If you have extensive changes to make to a memorial. You can add photos and suggest corrections without having to request management. Simply having someone in your family tree is not grounds for a management transfer request. With hundreds of thousands of contributors, we have many overlapping family trees and it would be impossible for all contributors to manage their entire tree.

Second, Transfer requests should be for direct relatives within four generations. This would be your siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.

Third, If you have extensive additions/changes to make to a memorial, please contact the Find A Grave member who created the memorial via the "Suggest a Correction" link under the "Edit" tab on the memorial in question with your request to have the memorial management transferred to you. This will send an email request to the contributor, even if there is not an email address listed on their contributor page.

Fourth, Explain your relationship in the request! Any non-direct relatives (aunts, uncles, cousins, etc) are not required to be transferred. Keep in mind that the original contributor may also be related to the memorial and may not make the transfer. Bulk surname requests should not be made. Be advised that memorials listed as famous or maintained by Find A Grave will not be transferred.

Fifth, The "Suggest a correction" feature may also be used to submit corrections, an original biography, and family links to memorials that do not fall under the above defintion. (Be sure to include the memorial ID#s for the family links and how they are related, father, mother or spouse. The original contributor should make any corrections and add any additional information you have for that memorial, such as links to parents and spouses, provided the information is accurate.

Sixth, Please note that it is not appropriate to request a transfer and then, after receiving the transfer, delete that page and substitute it with a new memorial that you have created. This practice denies credit to the original contributor. Please use the original memorial page to make updates and add information.

I HAVE HAD AN OVERABUNDANT AMOUNT OF BAD EXPERIENCES TRANSFERRING MEMORIALS TO MEMBERS WHO QUICKLY LOSE INTEREST AND ABANDON THE MEMORIALS I CREATED. WHEN I LOOK AT YOUR PROFILE AND I SEE YOU HAVE HAD HUNDREDS, OR THOUSANDS, OF MEMORIALS TRANSFERRED TO YOU, I WONDER ABOUT THE NECESSITY SINCE YOU ARE ONLY DIRECTLY DESCENDED FROM 30 PEOPLE ACCORDING TO FINDAGRAVE GUIDELINES.

ONE TRANSFER REQUEST CAME WITH A NOTE ABOUT ALL OF THE BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION SHE HAD TO POST WHICH CONSISTED OF "THIS WAS MY FIFTH GREAT GRANDPAPPY WHO I LOVED VERY MUCH". THAT, SOMEWHAT SUSPECT, BIOGRAPHY COULD HAVE BEEN POSTED ON A FLOWER TRIBUTE.

I RESEARCH ALL CORRECTIONS SUBMITTED TO ME FOR ACCURACY BECAUSE THERE IS A LOT OF MISINFORMATION AND FAMILY TREES WHICH ARE ALL MESSED UP ON RESEARCH SITES. ON SEVERAL OCCASIONS I HAVE BUILT TWO SEPARATE FAMILIES IN FINDAGRAVE SO THAT THEY WILL BACKFEED CORRECTLY INTO ANCESTRY. I AM TICKLED TO RECEIVE NEW EDITS AND LINKS, AND AM EXTRA EXTRA EXTRA EXCITED ABOUT PICTURES AND STORIES TO PERSONALIZE THE MEMORIALS. AND I AM EXTRA EXTRA EXTRA UNHAPPY WHEN PEOPLE TRY TO GET ME TO REMOVE INFORMATION IN ORDER TO REWRITE THEIR HISTORY TO PLEASE THEM.

I AM AN UNBIASED CARETAKER WILLING TO POST ALL THE DOCUMENTED INFORMATION YOU PROVIDE AND HAVE WORKED VERY CLOSELY WITH OTHER FINDAGRAVE MEMBERS FOR YEARS EXCHANGING INFORMATION TO HELP BUILD YOUR FAMILY HISTORY. MOST OF MY DIRECT ANCESTORS WERE BUILT BY AN EARLY PIONEER TO FINDAGRAVE WHO POSTED ALL OF THE INFORMATION I REQUESTED AND TAUGHT ME HOW TO DO IMBEDDED LINKS BEFORE THE RELATIONSHIP LINK FEATURE WAS ADDED. OVER TIME I HAVE TALKED HIM OUT OF A FEW OF THEM, BUT NOW HE SEEMS TO HAVE MOVED TO FLORIDA AND FOUND SOMETHING BETTER TO DO WITH HIS TIME. [I'M TALKING ABOUT YOU BERN] PUH-LEEZE DON'T OBSESS ABOUT OWNING THE MEMORIALS OF EXTENDED FAMILY.

Alfred Baldwin McNair
Great job on Alfred Baldwin McNair. I have been trying to link some of my McNair relatives and found Alfred's findagrave page. If you are a descendant, we are going to have a McNair reunion in October for the children of Edward and Mary McNair (from the mid 1700s and the first McNairs in America). Thank you for sharing!!!

Mary Rogers Johnston
After further reading Larkin Chew Johnston's quote"...was bur. by her brother John." I think this means that she was buried adjacent to him and not that he was the one that buried him.

BTW, John Rogers (1717-1797) was the oldest child of John Rogers (1680-1762) and Rachel Eastham (1685-1765) of King & Queen County, VA.

John Rogers (1717-1797)and Mary Rogers Johnston (1725-1800) had a couple of famous nephews. Their sister Ann Rogers (1728-1798) married John Clark and was the mother of Gen. George Rogers Clark "The Conqueror of the Northwest" and William Clark of the Lewis & Clark expedition.

Mary Rogers Johnston
Hi. I have reason to believe my 7X great-grandmother, Mary Rogers Johnston (1725-1800) may be buried in the Rogers-Robertson Family Cemetery. Mary was the sister of John Rogers (1717-1797). Mary married Larkin Chew Johnston. Here is a quote from the Larkin Chew Johnston Bible, still in existence today:

"My wife Mary Johnston departed this life 10/25/1800...was bur. by her brother John at his place on Hico on Tues. after she died being kept out of the ground for four days according to her request. We lived together upward of 55 years in which time she brought me ten children eight of which is alive now - 1802."

This bit of information conflicts with John Rogers dying in 1797. But I presume that Larkin was referring to his brother-in-law's place being on the Hyco River.

Does Larkin's description of John Rogers place "being on Hico" fit the Rogers-Roberston Family Cemetery? Thanks for any information.

Jesse Dickins
Here is the synopsis of Jesse Dickins’ will from Our Webb Kin of Dixie, W.J. Webb, 1940:
Dated 1832 (codicil 1838). Probated in Person Co., N.C. 1838. Witnesses: Portius Moore and William R. Reade.
Names: Daughters Mary B. Graves (deceased [she died in 1838]); Ann M. Webb; Grizey P. Smith; Harriett P. Webb.
Sons Robert Dickins and Stephen M. Dickins. “It is my desire that Silva be free. I give to my son-in-law Samuel H. Smith my negro woman Silva with request that he take care of her during her life. My negro man Isaac I request my executor to provide comfortably for during his life.”
I think that the date of the codicil and the naming of his deceased daughter support the 1838 death date. I have been researching the Moore and affiliated families for over 25 years and appreciate the many contributions that you have made.

RE: Mary Elizabeth Jones Holloway #143834998
"I'm curious how you came to place Alexander and his wife in this New Bethel Cemetery and not the New Bethel in Durham where he was living. I've added his Death Certificate to his site but it just says "New Bethel Cemetery". Did you have a cemetery survey with their names?" Aug 26, 2015

Her death certificate that you posted to the memorial shows "Wake County". If you feel this is incorrect you can request a photo and let me know. Cemetery Census doesn't show them in Durham or Wake County. October 27, 2015

"As you suggested, I did request a photo and this was the response I just received -
I searched the entire cemetery and could not find the grave. After not being able to locate this grave, I did a little more digging and believe he is buried in another cemetery:

http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=cr&CRid=1989363&CScn=new+b&CScntry=4&CSst=29&CScnty=1718&

This New Bethel Church cemetery is located in Orange County, (not far at all from where he died, which was Durham.) More then likely he is buried there. In 1973 it was recorded that there were at least 103 unmarked grave in that cemetery.

Due to this problem, we believe that this photo request can not be fulfilled. As a result, we are removing it.

I really think both their sites should be changed to the other New Bethel cemetery that is near Durham where they died - unless you have a specific source stating they are buried in the Garner cemetery.

Carrie Fuller Carden
I am the one doing Ellen's edits while she is ill. You requested Mrs. Carden's middle name to be listed as Wesley. The only source I can find is on her daughter, Delsie's SS appl. and it lists:
Mother Name: Carrie Westly

Please send your source for Wesley.

Also, on Mr. Carden there are various names for his middle name that I found, Lendo, Lindo, Lendon. How do you what me to handle that?

Thank you!! :)

Jesse Miller 1801 birth date
I am trying to document the birthdate of Jesse Miller, born in 1801, and buried in the Eno Quaker Cemetery north of Hillsboro. I also would like to document the birthdate of his wife, Polly Hall, in 1799. I am a descendent of their daughter Rachael Miller, who married Samuel Paisley Kirkpatrick on 25 Nov 1858. Any help would be appreciated.

James Madison Yarborough
thought you might be interested in this little bio

Two Brothers: John & James (jim) Madison Yarborough
· 7 June 2014 · 0 Comments
In the early 1800's two brothers, John and James Madison Yarborough came to Roxboro, Person County, North Carolina. They made their settlements in the Allensville community which later became the homestead of Sprijet Clayton. On both sides of the road as of 1994 are Yarborough cemeteries. This road is the old Allensville Road.

After a period of time James Madison (Jim) and his brother John had a dispute over the land. They divided the land, one taking one side of the road, and the other taking the other side of the road where the James Yarborough Cemetery is as of 1994. James Madison's grave cannot be found in the cemetery but the descendants of James Madison are still being buried there as of 1994.

When John and James had their dispute, they didn't have much to do with each other. They went so far as to changing the spelling of their last name. James is spelled Yarborough and John's was spelled Yarboro. They also used separate cemeteries. John's descendants were buried on the other side of the old Allensville Road on the backside of the Clayton homestead.

The name is correctly spelled Yarborough In the Washington National Archives. This is the name they had when they migrated from Europe to the United States in the early 1800's.

The old man John Yarborough had two sons. One went to Texas and was never heard of again. The other son who was James Madison Yarborough, who is the father of Quincy Yarborough continued to live on the homestead in Allensville. John Quincy had one brother who is deceased and a wife and one child who live in Burlington, NC.

However, James Madison Yarborough Is the ancestor of most of us Yarboroughs who still live in the same area of NC today.
