I have enjoyed working on Find A Grave both as a volunteer photographer and as a contributor. My husband Dave and I have created memorials for our families and added as much information as possible, including photos and documents. My family names include, Carlson, Beck, Higley, Welter, Jones, Fenwick, Davenport, and Lamb. I have roots in Sweden, Germany, Ireland, Scotland and England.
I take volunteer photographs in my home county of Montgomery, NC and surrounding counties of Moore, Randolph, Davidson, Stanly and Richmond. My husband is my partner in this endeavor, and we have trampled through the woods, briars, tall grass and poison ivy in search of old cemeteries. When I fulfill a request, if I see nearby family members' burials I will take additional photographs and add them to existing memorials, or create memorials. If you come across one of these, and are a relative, I will gladly transfer management. It's taking the photographs that interests me the most.
Feel free to contact me by e-mail or by leaving a message below and I will help in any way I can.
William McGregor Hi Dorothy...the name of this page is "Rev Wm McGregor" for the stone at Morrow Mtn State Park. However, the notation refers to the site as being for "Malcolm McGregor". Can you clarify this for me? The Rev Wm McGregor is one of my ancestor grandfathers, however, I continue to have a hard time identifying where he was prior to his home where this memorial stone is located. I look forward to hearing from you. Many thanks in advance. Billie McGregor, Salem, MA
Candor, NC / Abedee Blake Thank you so much for the photos of the grave of my grandfather, Abedee Blake. He died almost exactly 7 years before I was born, but I've heard so many stories about him and I find so many traits of his in myself (via my dad).
I've only been able to visit his grave twice -- the second time being upon the death of his brother, NC Rep. Colon Blake. As my father and his siblings age, I see so much of Abedee in their faces (and sometimes my own!) -- thank you so much for helping me to hold on to a connection with him!
