Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've been doing Genealogy for almost four years. I have researched both sides of my Family Tree and found many, many interesting people, stories, Family Histories ... I've met a lot of wonderful people and have had some very interesting talks, listening to stories about people I'm related to, as well as stories about people not in my Family. I have also met many distant cousins who have become good friends.
My Family names on my Father's Paternal side are Mecum, Morris, Campbell, Hammack, Wilkerson, Walker, Perry, and Watson in Forsyth, Stokes, and Guilford Counties in North Carolina. On his Maternal side are Crayton, Efird, Page, Smith, Culp, Coble, Cagle and Harward in Stanly County in North Carolina. On my Mother's Paternal side the names are O'Neal, Harlan, Keller, Bunten, Osborn, Duncan, and Robinson in Putnam and Hendricks Counties in Central Indiana, and Harris in Kentucky. On her Maternal side are Noland, Matthews, Chenowith, Mowbray, Bachtenkircher, and Lister in White, Jasper, and Pulaski Counties in Northern Indiana, Beach in West Virginia and Ohio, and Heil/Hile/Hyle in Pennsylvania.
If you are related, please contact me. I love meeting new cousins! If I can help you, please ask. I love to help people find their own Family Histories. And please use any pictures, stories, etc. that I have posted here in any way that you see fit. We are all Family, they belong to all of us!
I look forward to hearing from you!

PS As a result of something that just happened to me, yes, I will link people, no proof needed. If you want to link people, then obviously you've done your homework. AND, I am related either by blood or marriage to everyone I've made a Memorial for. However, if I have a person who is a closer relation to you, yes, I will transfer them to you. I'm not looking for numbers, I'm looking for Family!

Cities & towns in former counties
One problem with how Find A Grave has defined their towns and cities in counties is they rely on current data, even though many towns and cities could have once been in another county. Example is Bethania which is in current day Forsyth County, but was in Stokes County before Forsyth was created, and was in Surry County before Stokes was created, and was in Rowan County before Surry was created. :-)

Bethania was created in 1759 by the Moravians in what was termed Wachovia - it was one of 6 settlements. Wikipedia has a good summary located at:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wachovia,_North_Carolina

RE: Isaac Morris
You're welcome.

Here are the dates of creation for Surry, Stokes, Yadkin, and Forsyth counties, all of them coming from Surry County as the original county:

1771 Surry
1777 Stokes
1849 Forsyth (from Stokes)
1850 Yadkin (from Surry)

So, anything in Stokes before 1777 was in Surry County and before that it was Rowan County.

Anything in Forsyth County before 1849 was in Stokes County at least back to 1777. If before that it was Surry.

Anything in Yadkin County before 1850 (August I think) was in Surry County back to 1771.

There's a link to a map of NC which shows all the counties and when they were created. NC has 100 counties now, but there have been at least 130 since the state was created. Some were formed, then subdivided or merged, and some were abolished.

RE: Vern and Mary Walton
Hello -

I was hoping you would add Mary Elizabeth to the memorial for her Dad, G. Mahlon Sechman as one of his children. That's all I wanted.

Thanks - Judy

Oliver
In addition to Elizabeth, Clara and John, there are four other Olivers in the Oak Shade records. Add memorials for the following and I will post photos of them for you.

Leonard - d. 6/26/1934 age 74
Joseph - d. 1858 age 11
Henry - d. 1882 age 70
James W. - b. 22 Feb 1818 d. 26 Apr 1872

A Genealogy Society record identifies a son of H & E Oliver named Joseph Allen Oliver who died 29 Aug 1855 at the age of 14 days. Although this Joseph is listed as being buried at Oak Shade, only one Joseph is listed in each record and, as you can see, there is a conflict in the dates of death. Perhaps you have other facts of the matter.
