Bio and Links
Bio Photo My step mother started taking me to the cemetery when I was a teenager. All her family came from Patrick Co., Virginia, so they are buried up around Dry Pond or Holt Ridge. I've always loved history and found there was so much of it here in the cemetery.
My family names are:
Needham (Surry Co. NC),
Adams (Patrick Co. VA & Surry Co. NC),
Hunter (Surry Co. NC)
Wear (Blount Co. TN, Cherokee Co. AL, Bradley Co. AR, Bexar Co. TX )
Grant & Walker (SC to Habersham Co. GA)
Bowles (Green Co. GA)
(My husbands family) Munson, Watts,Patton, Patty, Padier,Goins. (La, OK, Ato Co. TX Bexar Co. TX)
(My Step-mothers family) Holt, Goings, Goins, Bowman, Frye........
and many others that I do for friends and family. I have found wonderful cousins I never new I had.
Some of the obits I've posted may be offensive to some but we have to look at them has a part of history and ignorance. I hope they will help someone in their research, to connect to a family member.
I will be happy to transfer any of your family over to you or take pictures for you. I'm not picky about how close a kin they were. Just that you maintain them.
I'm in Surry Co. NC and Patrick Co. VA once a year and will be happy to look for headstones for anyone while I'm up there. I also have the cemetery book for Patrick Co. VA, and the Surry Co. NC Heritage book 1 & 2 and the History of Gonzales Co. book.
Feel free to use any of my pictures or research. They are there for all to share. Please do not add death certificates or pictures of obits to memorial.
Please use the edit tab when making corrections or links. It goes a lot faster. Thank you

Thank you everyone in helping with links and dates and corrections. I some times spell words out of order "Irlen Syndrome" so please forgive me and thanks again, for your helping with correction's and up dates.

RE: Askey Cemetery
You will make someone very happy if the words Thomas Fly are there. Curious, where was Mary's statue? We basically went in the gate and did not go on all sides of the fence. We looked outside toward the cows but not on the outside opposite the gate entrance. I love the new photos you posted for Askey.

RE: Askey Cemetery
Can't believe we didn't see this headstone. Possibly because we were so focused on getting to the headstones inside the fence....

RE: Askey Cemetery
Wow! I sent a request to Find A Grave to remove the Askey main page photo because it was the wrong one. I sent that to them maybe 4 hours ago. They have already removed it!

Were you able to get photos of headstones for the Askey African American cemetery?

We were going to capture Sandies Chapel but Bill had a dental appt. hopefully, if the requests are still there, we will capture them in a few weeks.

RE: Askey Cemetery
Crap. There was a headstone outside of the fence? We didn't see that!! Let me know. All we saw was grass and cows nearby. I can see where that road can be a pain if you are in a hurry. We went to Willi's and then came back.

RE: Sam Cobb
Regarding the Askey Cemetery, we went there today due to your EXCELLENT directions and captured all headstone photos. We think the GPS coordinates listed are for the other Askey cemetery. Thank goodness we used your guidance. I am asking Find A Grave to remove the cemetery photo on the main page be removed. That photo should be at the other cemetery and you have captured that. THANKS AGAIN!!

Thank you, Cindy! I appreciate that - but I have been to the Rancho Cemetery several times. Saw that you were looking for it...or someone was. The Nixon Texas newspaper was not ever archived - however --- if you think you can find any of their obits - I would love to have them! I have the obit for Julia America Moore. Thank YOu --- and happy hunting Nancy Austin Fatheree
