Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a retired health care professional who is interested in genealogy among other things. I grew up on Long Island, went to school in Texas and Georgia, lived and worked in North Carolina and have recently relocated to South Carolina. I enjoy hiking and am always pleased to come across old, out of the way, cemeteries. I've been trying to locate family graves in Pennsylvania and was using Find a Grave when it occured to me that I would enjoy helping others trying to find graves.
Please note that as of 2015, I will no longer be making edits to any memorials that I have created unless accompanied by documentation of the edit requested. In absence of documentation, I invite you to request that I transfer the memorial to you for you to do with as you like. I am not a "numbers" person.

RE: Morning Star
You are welcome. Sorry I was slow figuring out what you needed. I had to remember which of my friends cousins had sent the headstone photo, so I could track down a location.

RE: Morningstar cemetery
On further investigation, it appears that this cemetery belongs to the Morning Star Baptist Church in Rocky Mount. Hope this helps.

RE: Morningstar cemetery
I was helping a coworker with some family tree questions and several of her cousins sent pictures and info. She has since passed away and I'm afraid I have not kept in touch so I don't know who shared the picture and burial location.

RE: Morningstar cemetery
Oh, the Whitaker grave. Sorry, I'm a bit slow on the uptake. I did create the memorial as part of an ongoing research project for a friend. But someone else sent me link info and the photo in an email. I looked to see if I kept any info on the sender but it doesn't look like it. Is this a family member of yours?

RE: Morning Star Cemetery
I'm sorry, you have me confused with someone else. I've never been to Edgecombe County.

Hello Pamela,

It is not unusual that his name would not be on the memorial. That is common at many cemeteries here. Apparently the family did not pay to have his name engraved.

I can only go by cemetery records in identifying whom is buried at a particular grave site. According to cemetery records, there are 27 people buried at that site, of which I am sure you were not aware.

When I take a photo I always try to include all people buried at the site. I did so in this case. I do not know how or what the relationship these people have. Below is a list of names of all those buried at 14 Clover Cedar Aloe:

First Middle Last Name Age Date of Burial

George Mrs. Abrams 32 12/27/1918
Joseph E Abrams 52 01/02/1967
Sarah Clark 64 10/04/1927
Millie Clark 72 06/20/1969
Thomas E. Clark 68 01/19/1965
Thomas Clark 03/13/1907
Annie Clark Frey 54 05/02/1933
Jacob Frey 04/16/1945
Clara Gbolpa 47 05/22/1937
Vivian Lillian Kelley 62 04/26/1985
Clayton S. Kelley 57 02/27/1976
Emile Knesel 38 02/06/1911
Edna Knesel 2 10/21/1908

I hope this helps.

Unmarked Graves
Wow! There were so many, I decided not to annotate anything. It is possible, I guess, there could be that many unmarked graves. But I suspect people have entered relatives/spouses of people already there, not knowing if the added person belonged there or not ????

THANKS for trying to find their graves!

RE: Shady grove
Hi! Can you send me a list of their names, and I will annotate their memorials as "unmarked" or "not at this cemetery"

Many thanks!
