Alexander Lackey Photo
Hi Tim,

I noticed the photo you posted on the Find-A-Grave memorial page for Alexander Lackey: http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=49287723
I have recently posted a couple of photos of the grave markers for Alexander & Margaret Lackey on the memorial page as well, that are located in the Lackey-Thompson Cemetery on Lackey Mountain Road in Hiddenite, N.C. I am contacting you to find out your connection to THIS Alexander & Margaret Lackey. I am sending you an e-mail with an attached document showing part of the family tree that I have for them. Alexander is my 3rd Great Grand Uncle and the son of my 4th Great Grandparents - William Lackey & Nancy Agnes Stevenson Lackey.

I noticed that you are out of Georgia and many from the Georgia Lackeys have confused my Alexander & Margaret with another Alexander out of South Carolina/Georgia that moved to Tennessee. I do have extensive genealogy records for the South Carolina & Georgia Lackeys and they are from a different line than mine…at least here in America. I have found a connection to them three generations back from my 5th Great Grandfather William Leckie, Sr. (William's father) into Scotland but there is NO direct connection between those two branches of Lackeys in America. The main North Carolina branch of Lackeys (my line) came to America in the early 1700's and down into North Carolina in the 1720's. The South Carolina/Georgia Lackeys came to America thru the port of Charleston, S.C. in the LATE 1700's and migrated into Georgia and some of them up into the Old Fort and Black Mountain area of North Carolina in the mid to late 1800's. The two separate family branches ended up living in some of the same areas of western North Carolina and some of the same names such as William, John, Alexander & James etc were used time and time again by BOTH branches of the families which has caused some confusion and incorrect connections to the wrong family lines between them. This is shown by the children listed in the memorial which are ALL wrong. I have contacted the folks that posted those names in connection with Alexander & Margaret in the Find-A-Grave memorial to Alexander and asked that they remove them so hopefully they will do just that and I'll be able to go in and add the correct children for Alexander & Margaret Lackey.

Our family Foundation is responsible for mowing and cleaning in the Lackey-Thompson Cemetery and a few other old family cemeteries in Alexander County, North Carolina and I am head of the Foundation and the family Genealogist & Historian and I am trying to correct the many errors that have been so wide spread over the internet from folks making mistakes by tying themselves or some of their ancestors to my direct family lines in error. So many just assume and don't check any records and in the case of Margaret Kelton…Alexander's wife…someone has tied her to the WRONG Alexander out of South Carolina/Georgia and that is what has started a complete mess with many others of the South Carolina/Georgia line assuming that our Margaret Kelton was the wife of their Alexander when we all know better around here but getting it corrected has been a total nightmare because the incorrect genealogy that has been "copy catted" and posted on the internet by so many in the other Lackey line.

This is why I am curious about your connection…Are you from my line or the South Carolina/Georgia line? I have a great deal of genealogy records from the South Carolina/Georgia Lackeys that I would be glad to share with you and I am in contact with some of the descendants of that line. If you are from my line then I am even more excited to make that connection. Please review the e-mail and the attached .pdf document of the family tree for Alexander & Margaret Lackey and let me know of your connection if you are so inclined. Let me know if you have any problem opening or reading the document.

Regards,

Mark Lackey

Formby Headstones
Tim, you have taken 4 Formby headstone photos:
Jasper Newton Formby # 75621174
Martha Josephine JOHNSON Formby # 75622045
George Newton Formby # 74958495
Hettie Beatrice STANSELL Formby # 74958574

I would like your permission to use these 4 photos on my family tree on Ancestry.

I had the for people in Silver Creek Primitive Baptist Church Cemetery and have moved them to Wax Community Cemetery at the request of another person. I am wondering if they are in Wax or Silver Creek Cemetery or is this the same Cemetery?

Thank you,
Sharren Formby

Tim,

I was there and took a photo of her stone that seems easier to read than the one you have posted. I put it up but will gladly remove it if you'd like. It's apparent Josie is your relative and you must feel very protective over her memorial. I totally understand that. I don't care for others posting the exact same photo I posted on memorials of my loved ones.

RE: Perry Photo
Hello,

While I was there I got pictures of the other Chapman and Perry graves, from 1800's to present. Let me know if you wanted any of that information or pictures. You may already have it.
