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 members who are in no way connected but will not part with the management of a memorial that they made. If you do not want to transfer a memorial when asked, do not send me mail about the FAG guidelines. I have read them and I think the relationship does not go far enough. If it is a cousin that you can add information about it will be helpful to anyone working on genealogy. If you know nothing about the person please transfer as requested.

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: Amity Cemetery entrance sign
I just found that the other day, too......I was so disappointed, too.....SO GLAD I got pictures when it was still up....the cemetery was mowed up good that day, but I know a lot of them are having trouble getting people to move the cemeteries now & keep them in good shape.....No one wants to work anymore & respect the cemeteries....I hope to find out what happened to that sign.....It had to have happened not too long ago as I have been there recently off & on....I wondered if a tree trimming crew accidently got into it as I can tell they have trimmed a lot along the bank of the cemetery & it is more open from the road side than it used to be.....Hope, too, they can save it somehow....

Sherrill line
Dear Sherlock,
I was a Sherrill before marriage and have done a great deal of research on this line as well as many others. As to the Isaac Lowrance Sherrill 1776-1861, I have never found any Indian blood in this line. Sometimes older pictures may be dark. Bathsheba Barrett 1748-1816, is reputed to have been of Indian stock. She married Samuel Oxford Jr. 1740-1811. They had James B Oxford 1768-1806, who married Hannah Barnes 1778-1849, Their daughter, Mary Ann Oxford 1812-1881 married John D. Sherrill 1809-1849. Their son, my great grandfather, was James Melton Sherrill 1836-1900. That does not leave any room for an Indian connection in 1776. The Sherrill line goes back to England in the early 1600's. There are 2 different Sherrill lines but the one that Isaac Lowrance Sherrill comes through is my line. I worked with Bryce Sherrill over several years on the burials in the Sherrill Cemetery on the old Airport road. I can send you a copy of the burials if you like. Many had just initials. We were able to assign names to many of them. Bryce died about 2 years ago. A real loss. He lived in James Melton Sherrill's home built in the early 1800's. He owned the airport and cemetery land. Many of the Sherrill's and connecting lines are buried in the Tabernacle Advent Christian Church Cemetery in Lenoir, Caldwell Co., N.C. You can go on line and get all the names buried there. (includes Bryce) You can respond by e-mail if you wish @
Hope this may be of some help. Sharon
