Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born and raised in Atlanta, but have lived most of my adulthood in Charlotte, North Carolina. Coincidentally I ended up right where my roots are on my father's side of the family. Genealogy is my passion and I never met a cemetery I didn't like. I'm also into historic preservation, both of buildings and the lives of people no longer with us.

As the daughter of a general and great-granddaughter of 3 Confederate veterans, I like to note military records of veterans on their findagrave memorials.

I welcome corrections/additions, but will no longer link to a "burial unknown" person. I have found this leads to duplicates.

FAMILIES ON MY FATHER'S SIDE: Irwin, DeWeese, Blackwelder, Babcock, Taylor, Wilbon.

FAMILIES ON MY MOTHER'S SIDE: Bryan, Battle, Pope, Atkinson, Yarbrough, Chappell.

RE: Erasmus Powe Ervin (1842-1872)
Senator Sam was, as we all probably are, a bit over-proud of his ancestry. But, he was a good lawyer and seemed to have built a good case! Thanks!!!

thank you for the entry on Charles. He was a unique and wonderful "boy/man" who never reached his full potential here on earth. He has long been missed.

Hello Susan,

Thanks for all the corrections and edits. I finally had to change to a gmail account. Have worked for 7 months trying to get my hotmail account back open. I keep getting the run around and it's a different person each time, so I have to start over. It the account I use only for Find A Grave and Genealogy.
Bet I have a backlog of 4,000 emails on the hotmail account. Figure it will take me several hours, which are hard to fit in, before I can open it back up. I used the wrong password too often.
Am finally getting back in the game. Took over 500 pictures last week at Salisbury. So far only 1 out of 5 have already been entered. The person who was keeping up with new graves has moved to Virginia. So I just go to the new parts and start working on pictures. Was there for a Patriot Guard Mission. It was 96+ as I was taking pictures.
Take care. My new address is
