Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've been researching my family for many years and have found Findagrave to be invaluable. It is NOT a genealogy site though. It's main purpose is to document the location of graves. Being able to link family members and post bios is a bonus, but not a requirement for the memorials.

Please use the edit button on the memorial and use the suggest a correction (SAC) to add information or to request a transfer of a memorial. If requesting a transfer, include your relationship to the person you are asking to be transferred and your member number. I only do transfers or corrections through the EDIT tab and Suggest A Correction on the memorial.

Many of my memorials have been entered from transcripts and I have not seen the actual headstone. If you post a headstone photo to a memorial, and there is a difference in info, please send an edit and let me know.

Please do not post a death certificate to a memorial that I manage. If there is information on the d/c that I have not listed, send a SAC and I'll add it. I will not add cause of death.

Thank you for the information and links. If you have other information it would be appreciated. At one time I was trying to document all the Clergy of the Western North Carolina Conference. But too many did not list their burial spot in the conference journal.
Perhaps some day I can go back and add these.

Mizpah Cemetery
Thanks again, I have, I think finally got the editing done right changing Airport Road to Mizpah Road. Hard to proofread your own stuff :) On Elvis Leon Powell's Death certificate the place of burial is listed only as Mizpah burial site. Thanks and if you see any other items I might have entered wrong don't hesitate to bring to my attention.

RE: Mizpah Cemetery
I found the name of the Black church at the corner of Mizpah and Stokes td. that was torn down, and rebuilt. It is Ashley Chapel AME Zion.
So far I have not found a photo of it.

RE: Mizpah Cemetery
I looked on Myrtle's site. She has listed Mizpah church Cemetery, and when you click on that you get Mizpah Cemetery with a photo of white people in front of an old church. This church is no longer there. In the early 1900's this church was there and the cemetery nearby. White people were buried there. Then later black people were buried in the cemetery. Every few years they get a group to clean it up. Some people have fenced in their family plots and keep them cleaned up. I can tell this is the large cemetery because of the Andrews family buried there. Down the road at the corner of Stokes Rd. Black people built a church, and cemetery. A few years ago, they built a new church at the corner of Collins Rd. Their old church was condemmed and torn down, probably last year. Yes the names are confusing, and Myrtle does not have the Black church cemetery listed at all.

RE: Mizpah Cemetery
I will check Myrtle's site. Some of her info is wrong.

RE: Mizpah Cemetery
no, the smaller cemetery is the church cemetery

RE: Mizpah Cemetery
yes, Mizpah Cemetery is at the corner of Mizpah rd. and Collins Church Rd. Looking on Google maps, it looks like the old Mizpah church has been torn down. Mizpah Memorial cemetery is at the corner of Mizpah Rd. and Stokes Rd. Google maps was updated in the county last summer.

RE: Mizpah Cemetery
yes there are 2 Mizpah cemeteries. One is just called Mizpah cemetery, and is the largest one, with many unmarked graves. It has a nice brick sign done by an eagle scout for his project several years ago. The other Mizpah cemetery is at the old church down the road from the other cemetery, at the corner of Stokes Rd. and Mizpah rd. The old church is in bad shape and I think has been condemmed, and they have built a new church down the road from the old church. The one called Memorial is the one at the old church.
