Find A Grave Memorial# 87348376
I guess a link is a no-go. To see the survey, google "238 RALEIGH CITY CEMETERY [OLD] - Surname starts with W" The survey is on

Memorial# 87348376 Wesley Whitaker
There is a survey of City Cemetery online with photographs. The survey notes that top and bottom halves of Wesley Whitaker's and his wife Sarah's headstones have been mixed together. The photographs of the jumbled headstones clearly show the problem. It would be nice if someone corrected this at the cemetery, but that apparently hasn't been done.

Memorial# 87348376 Wesley Whitaker
The information and part of the broken marker you show for Wesley Whitaker are actually for his wife Sarah Langley Whitaker b. Apr. 10, 1788, d. Apr. 30, 1857. Her information is at Find A Grave Memorial# 105970645 and comes from from a cemetery survey compiled in 1940 by the Historical Records Survey of North Carolina located in the Wake County Family Records Collection, State Archives.

Wesley Whitaker actually died July 6, 1861 (obituary). He wrote a Wake Co., North Carolina, will dated November 6, 1857, probated in 1861. He also was on the 1860 census in Wake Co.:

1860 > NORTH CAROLINA > WAKE > RALEIGH P O Series: M653 Roll: 916 Page 173
HH 541/552
Wesley Whitaker 72 piano maker 1500/3000 North Carolina
Lea H Whitaker 35 North Carolina

Clearly, he was alive after Apr. 30, 1857. The grave markers for Wesley and his wife Sarah were both broken and the marker you show is a misleading combination of Wesley's and Sarah's markers.

Because both Ancestry and FamilySearch now link to Find a Grave it would be great if you could amend the information about Wesley Whitaker.

RE: Sanford Britt
I've added Margaret J Britt (Sanford's 1st wife) and their son Bennie Britt to the Britt Cemetery (aka Orin Stone Cemetery) where Sanford is buried. I have some of their dates and a copy of Sanford & Margaret's marriage license. Hope you don't mind, I can not locate a death cert on either of them.

Walters Cemetery
Would like to know if there is a stone/marker for Arry/Orra Britt. She and Nimrod Britt are my great, great grandparents. Also, could you give me the location of this cemetery, as I would like to visit on my next trip to NC.
I researched the people buried there (according to your virtual cemetery). They all seem to be related. Would appreciate any info you have on Arry/Orra and Nimrod Britt.
I discovered a newspaper article relating Nimrod's death, October 14, 1880. Found in The Daily Review in Wilmington, North Carolina on Wed, Oct 20, 1880. Announcement of the death of Mr. Nimrod Britt.
Thanks so very much for posting the info on the Walters cemetery.

Vanessa Cole
Cedar Grove Confederate Soldiers
Hi Eric,

My name is Vanessa Cole and I live in Williamsburg, VA. I am a Civil War historian and am very familiar with the Civil War history here. I have noticed that you have created a Find A Grave page for all of the soldiers who are buried at Cedar Grove and you have included plot info (grave number/row). I am doing research on the men buried there and am wondering where you got that information. I've seen plot info as you have it listed in the Bucktrout Ledger and am wondering if that is where you got it or if there is another source of info for these soldiers. Unfortunately, the men buried there have no marker or stone, which is the basis of my current research and I am the beginning stages of getting acknowledgement for all of them. I look forward to hearing from you.

Thank you.
