Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have spent many years researching my ancestors. Surnames connected to my father's line: Halterman,Myers,Shanks,Barnes,Baker,Petticord,Floyd,Cox,Robinson, Barnett,Glass,Evans and Huff from OH, PA, MD

Surnames connected to my mother's line are: Greene,Green,Watson,Sherrill,Carlton,Livingston, Marley,Ferguson,Wallace,White,Triplett,Laws, McKee,Allison,Durham,Bailey,Lowrance,Bray, Hodges,and Hamby from North Carolina. My third great grandmother in NC is believed to be a full blood Cherokee. Perhaps DNA will prove it.

I only enter and manage memorials that are of my family & ancestors. Please respect my request to manage Find A Grave memorials of my ancestors entered by someone with no family connection. I have met some very nice people who will transfer a cousin or ancestor that does not meet the FAG guide lines, and some real "JERKS" who are in no way connected but will not part with the management of a memorial that they made.

The Schupp's from Germany adopted my Baker grandmother and therefore I entered memorials for all the Schupp's connected to her adopted family.

Many NC families migrated to Coshocton County, Ohio starting in 1920 and continued through the 1930's. Most (if not all), are connected to my NC ancestors. I will make memorials for those who lived, had children, and died here. I have known many of these people since I was a child.

WHEN I ADD A FAMILY PICTURE TO THE MEMORIALS, DO NOT COPY THEM WITHOUT MY APPROVAL. IN NO WAY ARE THEY TO BE COPIED AND USED ON ANY INTERNET GENEALOGY SITE. I have found copies of my pictures on and GENI genealogy sites that were taken without my permission. Any member of Find A Grave that does not honor this restriction will be tracked down and reported.

I recently found some of my entire Find A Grave memorials copied and put on GENI and Rootsweb. The FAG memorials are managed only by me and when copied and added to other websites, I cannot change or delete them. This must be stopped.

Do you know that Find A Grave genealogy and pictures are now part of If you did not want your information spread around everywhere it is too late. This included copyrighted family pictures. You have to pay for information including what was yours.

I also follow the Federal Law at 17 U.S.C 107 about copying information and pictures and using them for other than personal use.

It is OK to copy pictures of grave stones. Thanks

RE: Silentangel
No I haven't contacted Find A Grave about her yet. I need to get together the memorial information for my family and contact Find A Grave and ask them to transfer them. I believe there are around 31 in the same cemetery. I'm guessing maybe she passed away, too bad I don't know her real name, she probably lives local to me and I could try contacting her. Let me know what response you get from Find A Grave.

RE: Edward Bray 55998977
Thank you so much for responding. I'm helping to work on an application for the DAR. My Edward Bray (1760 - 1840)was born in Orange Co NC; married a Nancy Dowdy (1760 - 1830); and was living in Monroe Co KY on the 1840 census.
I have a Quaker record that shows an Edward Bray Admitted on 6 Apr 1799 with father, Henry Bray, in Surry NC. Obviously different Edwards. Do any of these names and places fit into your Bray family notes?

Evan Baker
I am working on my Baker line. I see you have Evan Baker buried in Harrision county, Ohio. But another Evan Baker's will was probated in 1835 in Tyler County, WV. could this be the same person?
Thanks in advance.

RE: Greetings
The information on my father isn't completely accurate.
In his marriage to Gertrude he had one son and one daughter.
Steven Lee and Cheryl .

After their divorce, he married my mother, Agnes Elizabeth Fife. They had two sons. Randall Matthew born 1966 and myself 1963.

Thanks for all your work in the family tree!

Dirty tactics ...
"I recently found some of my entire Find A Grave memorials copied and put on GENI and Rootsweb. The Find A Grave memorials are managed only by me and when copied and added to other websites, I cannot change or delete them. This must be stopped." Sherlock

I stopped posting pics long ago when I (and my hard working cousins) got "used & abused" when we allowed a certain person in to our private cousins group. He took everything from all the pics, documents, research notes, and gedcom then claimed it all as his own. Pics I posted are showing up everywhere. I (and many devoted cousins) worked long and hard investing a lot of time and money (as you have done). It is very sad that people take advantage and have the nerve to take full credit and not acknowledge the hard work of others. Shame on them!

RE: Sherrill line
It looks like we are both stuck on the Bailey Line. If you would like more information on the Sherrill line I would be willing to share. I had done a lot of research years ago when Bill Sherrill from Texarkana, Arkansas called and asked if he could come see my records. He and my father both came and had a great visit. It took him several days to go through what I had collected. He then went beyond my work, went to England for more research and eventually published 2 books on the Sherrill line. He passed away a few years ago but his books (although errors from contributors exist) are quite a work of dedication.
My grandmother, Stella Susan Dula Sherrill returned to N.C. in 1915 with my father who was 11 at the time. Cynthia Caroline Barlow Sherrill gave my grandmother the old family spinning wheel which she brought back to Washington with her. It is over 300 years old and sits by my fireplace. Do you know the story about James Melton Sherrill's first wife?

Sherrill line
I am a Sherrill through George Folk Sherrill & Irene Bonham, James Finley Sherrill & Stella Susan Dula, James Melton Sherrill & Cynthia Caroline Barlow, John Sherrill & Mary Ann Oxford, Isaac Lowrance Sherrill & Mabel Durhan, William J Sherrill & Susannah Isabella Lowrance, Capt. William Sherrill & Marie Agnes White, Adam Sherrill & Elizabeth Corzine, William Sherrill & Margarette Rudisil. The last (Wm. Sherrill & Margarette Rudisil) still need proof.
We have a number of same family lines. I am having difficulty with Mabel Bailey c1758 - 1811 married John D Durham. I can find no concrete proof of her parents. Is it possible for you to help?
My e-mail is
Sherrill, Carlton, Durham, Bailey, Oxford, Barnes Laxton, Barmes & Lowrance are strong names on my Sherrill side. I found an amazing record of burials in the Belleview Cemetery, Caldwell Co. N.C. read by Mary Anderson Montgomery & published in 1989. Vol 1 & 2 are located in the Lenoir Library. The cemetery office did not have complete records of burials in this cemetery. When we walked her records to find James Finley Sherrill's first wife and infants by his 2nd wife
we found them just as she recorded them. She did an amazing job plotting the cemetery and recording all the markers at that time. It was published by: Staley Publishing and Genealogical Research, P.O. Box 7, Patterson, N.C. 28661
Her name and address: Mary Anderson Montgomery
240 Looper Street Drive, Granite Falls, N.C. 28630
I live in California but have been to Lenoir several times to research family. The Sherrill home built by James Melton Sherrill is still in the family and until about 2 years ago was inhabited by Bryce Sherrill. He passed away last year. His nephew now owns the home. It is on Knox Sherrill Road in Lenoir.
I also have a list of burials in the old Sherrill Cemetery, just off Lower Creek Airport on Cottrell Hill Road. A relative had walked it a number of years ago. Since many stones had initials I worked with Bryce to decipher most of the individuals. Both James Melton Sherrill & Cynthia Caroline Barlow are buried there. I would be happy to send you a copy if you are interested.
Best wishes, Sharon
