Bio and Links
Bio Photo Researching Horton's, Marshall's and all related families. We live in the Crystal Coast area of North Carolina. Besides genealogy, we are very involved in the US Coast Guard Auxiliary.

I had FAG transfer all of Becky's memorials to me in 2011 as she has passed away. There were over 20,000 of them so forgive me if I haven't gotten them all updated/corrected. There are many with mistakes. Please let me know if you find one and I'll get it corrected. Many of them are off a few days for the death date. If they are buried in Pulaski Co, Va, check out Pulaski County Library System for more complete information and let me know. If you see a memorial that you'd like to manage, just let me know and I'll transfer it to you. Thanks, Becky, for all your hard work.

Tombstones are "More than a Name on a Wall" as sung by The Statler Brothers in the song by the same title.

From Find A Grave's FAQ...
"The ultimate goal should be to have meaningful, accurate memorials that honor those who have passed away, REGARDLESS of who created the memorial or who maintains it."

For all my Marshall family, we now have a Facebook page. See Jacob Marshill for family pics and other genealogy info there. Thanks,

RE: Robert Tolbert #38065090
I am glad it was a mystery to you as well. I kept looking at it to see if I was missing something.

Robert Tolbert #38065090
I found what I believe is his stone. Double stone with Iowa, dates match, however, it shows the name Eddie, Sr. I know his obit shows his wife to be Iowa and his name as it is listed. There is also Edward Tolbert, Jr and his obit shows his parents as Iowa Mabry and Edward Tolbert, Sr. I will post the photo and if you feel it isn't the correct person, I can remove it.

Thanks for the info on his first wife, Dora Brown, and his parental links, DOB and DOD, etc. Do you know where Dora is buried or if she has a memorial? Also, do you know the maiden name of his second wife, Mary Lou? Thanks for your help!

William Stuart gravestone
Hello Denise! I was looking at William Stuart 1818-1881 gravestone in Mechanicsburg, VA Cemetery and noticed the death date reads OCT instead of November. Great picture - thanks for your work!

RE: Joseph Horton, Sr. #55665610
Hello Denise,

Hope you are well and those eastern storms aren't so bad. I'm in sunny Sou Cal where it's generally always nice (except for the earthquakes, severe droughts & millions of poeple). I often miss the Virginia / North Carolina mountains and sreams. My Mom taught school in Roanoke and in Roanoke and Mt Airy. Hope the below is what you want. I don't have a lot of information at this point having just opened an active account late last year.

Joseph Horton, born 1782 in North Carolina

Son: William Riley Horton, born 9-24-1831, VA
(married Anise Hardy)

Ellis Franklin Horton, born 10-26-1858, VA
(married Nancy Midkiff)

Davis Arthur Horton, born 2-22-1882, VA
(married Sarah Dalton)

Thelma Birdie Horton, born 2-22-1911, VA
(married Arthur W Fansler)

Robert Wesley Fansler,3-27-1941,Fancy Gap, VA

Very best wishes,

Bob Fansler
