Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a retired elementary school teacher and administrator. I am very passionate about genealogy and the history of Western North Carolina and Blount/Monroe Counties of Tennessee. I will be happy to share photographs from local cemeteries here in the Crabtree/Iron Duff area of Haywood County, NC.

If you have time, I would appreciate your paying a visit to the memorial for my brother David Edwards Nichols, Metz Cemetery, Graham County, NC. David passed away on February 17, 2012. He was an avid genealogist and took many photos of stones for Find A Grave, as well as located pictures of individuals so I could post them. I have many more to post because he worked much faster than I. He's in Heaven now, and knows the answers to many of the questions I still have about our ancestors--always a step ahead of me. Thank you.

David Edward Nichols

Joseph Welch of Macon County
Dear Frances,

Joseph is buried in the old Welch Cemetery in Macon County. It is in the Burningtown community, but I couldn't tell you exactly where. I've been there, but it was about 20 years ago. There is a barbed wire fence around it to keep the cows out. It took some real digging to find this one. Unfortunately, I have no pics.

Joseph's wife was Catherine DECK, daughter of Jacob Deck (signed his name TACH), son of immigrant Johann Hendrick Deck/Tach and his wife Catherine Barbara Frolich. Jacob's Revolutionary War pension is #S7677.

Thanks for your story on Joseph. I'm proud to be a Welch descendant.

Frances, Dr. Lloyd Bailey says Morgan was a Union soldier, you gave him a Confederate flag? p. 695 (Lloyd's "Yellow Jacket" John Bailey book.)

At this point I can't remember where my info came from - I'm not related and have no personal knowledge. Sounds like you have better info so I'll delete my memorial. Thanks for bringing that to my attention.

Rosetta Bailey Hampton
Rosetta's father was Robert Andrew Bailey who died in 1942 from suicide and whose burial place is unknown to me. Her mother, Hannah Bradford Bailey Hammett, was my great aunt.

Thank you for all that you do.

RE: Ronnie Gene Burchfield
Thank you so much Frances for informing me of my Burchfield lineage. I'm going to add in some new names beyond Alden Howell Burchfield. I am also curios about Anna McKinney and if we're related to the McKinneys at all besides Nathan's wife.

RE: Re: William Harvey Rogers
Thanks for the reply Frances! That is probably the answer. My Grandmother Ethel was 13 (and the oldest) at the time of America's death in child birth. She went back to Swain Co. NC to live with America's parents then. There were younger siblings so I always wondered who took care of them. Ethel died in 1973 before I started genealogy. My mother knew nothing about Harve Rogers so I'm guessing he was the "black sheep" in the family. I will keep digging!

Close Burchfield decendant
Hello Frances, my name is Marley Lowe and I am the eldest grandchild of Ronnie Gene Burchfield. I am doing genealogy on his family tree and I am asking you if you know his relationship to Nathaniel Burchfield who married Anna McKinney. I saw that you posted on both groups of families and I just thought maybe we're all cousins. I hope to hear from you soon and thank you.

William Harvey Rogers & America Bailey
Hi Frances: William Harvey & America were my gr-grandparents. America died Jan 14 1922 in Colquitt Co. GA. Several years ago we went to the court house in Colquitt & found a marriage record for W.H. Rogers & Annie Smith on Jul 2 1922. He had several small children so it stands to reason he would be looking for a caregiver for them. In the 1930 census he is listed a a widow. Have you found anything about a marriage for him before he married Rosetta about 1945? Thanks for any info you can provide. JoAnn Blunt
