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)
Munson, Watts,Patton, Patty, Padier,Goins. (La, OK, Ato Co. TX Bexar Co. TX)
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.
I am currently working on the families of Gonzales Co. TX.
I've been adding the census records more for my benefit but also for those looking for family members. With so many families to research it helps to keep them straight in my head.
Please fell free to use any of the obits or picture I've posted, if it helps your research then I'm happy to share.
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 live in Gonzales TX and I am documenting the City Cemeteries here in town. If you have any information on people buried here I would love to add it.
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.

RE: Needam
My cousin is getting them from the Indianapolis state library. This has turned into a full time project for 3 people!

RE: Needam
THANK YOU! FOR PUTTING IT UP!!! I'm not getting a lot of cooperation from people. I think those old obits sometimes 'flesh' the person out and shouldn't be ignored.

RE: Sarah Needham Boyles
It was in the bio of her or someone else that mentioned Hannah's name as Coltrane and not Frazier. Right now I can't recall, but it wasn't an issue really.

You have an incorrect photo on this memorial. You have his daughter's grave.

Hello Cindy,

Thank you for all of your hard work compiling information for people you've never known. I just wanted to let you know the memorial page you have for Ollie Cavanaugh has an error on it. Her father was Nelson Cosey and her mother was Clara Burkhead (that's her maiden name). Clara was married three times, but only had children with Nelson. Cassel was her last husband. Again, I'd like to thank you for what you do. It takes a special person.
