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

Dorothy Peterson De la Rosa
Hi, my name is Dorothy. I am the Granddaughter of James Phillip Welch. I am looking to trace any history I can find about James Blythe Welch. I know James was married to Ellen Sanderville. That is the extent of my knowledge. I was hoping you could fill me in on additional info on the genealogy of James Welch.

RE: Maude Lela Wikle Yarborough
Thanks for the info and the obit for Maude. I have included her burial site to my records. I also established a memorial for her linking her to William E. Yarborough. However,I don't have the burial information on her 1st husband Robert Wayne Burgin so she is not linked to him. Thanks again.
