Bio Photo I'm a single Mom of 2 wonderful boys, and a husband who is gone but not forgotten, James Lloyd Jordan Jr. I followed in my mother's mother's footsteps and fell in love with researching my family. I have found many cousins through ancestry.com. And 1 family though this website, who I consider not only a cousin but a best friend.

RE: Mai North Colcock Calhoun Obit
It was no trouble at all- my library, the cemetery, Mrs. Calhoun's home and the CRHS are all within a few blocks of each other and not far from my home. I truly enjoy this kind of thing- it's like a treasure hunt and really brings history alive for me! I have a couple of contacts for the cemetery (emails, no phone numbers), so I will reach out to them and, with your blessing, give them your contact info. I would be happy to go by the CRHS and get a copy of the UDC document, but it might be a couple of weeks before my schedule allows it. I will let you know when I hear from them. If it would help, I can go to the library and get the obit for her husband, too. Talk to you soon!

Mai North Colcock Calhoun Obit
Sorry it took so long, but I found the obit for Mai Calhoun and posted it to her page. I also searched for her on the local historical society webpage (Central Rappahannock Heritage Center)and found two items: 1) her address (she lived in a historical house- James Mercer's Study! I drove by and snapped some pictures and will send them to the email listed on your Find A Grave page. 2)her application for the United Daughters of the Confederacy. The CRHC office was closed, but I can go back sometime and get a copy of the document for you, if you'd like.

Regards,
Shelby (HomesickOkie)

RE: Barr Family Cemetery
I appreciate the offer but I am not related to anyone in Ashe Co. so am happy to transfer to any relative who is active on F-A-G.
Also, I uploaded all my photos in Sept 2013 so have not been adding anything since then.

RE: Find A Grave Memorial# 28286348
It was my pleasure, truly; The Confederate Cemetery is beautiful and I love going. I am swamped with schoolwork right now, but when I find time I will go to the downtown library and see if I can find the obituaries for Mai Calhoun and her husband and then post them. It might be a few weeks but I will get to it :) Good luck with your genealogy project!

Hi Roxanne,
cc: Kim Jacobson (#46593064)

You said, "re: Find A Grave Memorial# 123807006
Hi, My name is Roxanne Jordan. Catherine Montgomery was the wife of my 3rd cousin 10x's removed. I do see you have made a duplicate memorial but do have the same information that I do. Was wondering if you know which cemetery is correct. Here is a copy of the original memorial made. Created by: Kim Jacobson. Record added: Dec 31, 2006. Find A Grave Memorial# 17233694
Has the same tombstone as the one you have. I find this kind of odd. I wanted to contact you before contacting Kim and you asking about merging these two since the rule is a duplicate who ever created first has the rights to keep unless there is no direct relationship. I'm also interested in sharing information on this line along with the Hamm/ Ham's. The Ham/Hamm was my 2gr grandfathers line and the Calhoun's was my 2nd gr grandmothers. Thanks for any help, Roxie
ps you may email me @ roxie0914@windstream.net or leave me a public message. Added by Tazgirl on Aug 13, 2014 7:23 PM".

Robert replies to Roxanne, both memorials are useful and special!

1) My entry is NOT A DUPLICATE. It's the physical burial site.
2) Whereas Kim's memorial was added at the site of the actual murders. That location bears a "cenotaph", which marks the place, as a historical site.
3) But, according to competent research, there are no burials of "those killed", at that location.
4) Research also indicates, that the physical burial site is, "Calhoun Cemetery" (which is where I added my memorial).
5) I didn't add that cemetery to Find A Grave, nor the photo of the "cenotaph" - other volunteers did so.
5) Alas, there is NO "surviving" gravestone for Catherine, as a victim of the massacre (inside of "Calhoun Cemetery" - or, if one once existed - it's now "lost to time").
6) I suggest that BOTH of memorials be retained.
7) I've added a notation - pointing to Kim' work - and she may add a reciprocal notation.

That's what has been done to resolve similar, otherwise "conflicting" memorials - and following the advice of the F.A.G. Admin staff.

Got your request and have transferred Charles Stembridge to you. I will plan to take a photo when I can pinpoint his plot in the cemetery. :)
