Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a native of western NC, a retired educator, book and animal lover, gardener, collector of vintage children's books, artist, photographer, and proudly addicted to genealogical research.

"If you want to understand today, you have to search yesterday." - Pearl S. Buck

Our lineage includes the following family names, listed alphabetically: Black, Blount, Brickey, Brooke, Burnet, Cable, Caffee, Carringer, Chapman, Colt, Crisp, Dennis, Dewey, Fauntleroy, Folger, Fye, Gaylord, Gordon, Hardy, Henderson, Hickman, Hoffman (or Hoffmann), Hogle, Hogue, Hoyne, Irish, Jenkins, Keyser, Knott, Kreider, Leslie, Lovin (or Loving), Lull, Lynd, MacDonald, Macy, McCallum, McClure, McCray, Mease, Messer, Mosteller, Odom, Owenby, Peale, Penland, Phelps, Quinn, Robbins, Rogers, Schnebly, Snow, Staughton, Stuman, Swem, Temple, Williamson, and Wright.

I don't mind photographs I have posted here at FAG showing up at other genealogical locations such as Ancestry, but I do ask that they be properly cited. Thank you.

Many, many thanks to my fellow Gravers who have stopped by the memorials for my parents, my husband's parents, and any other members of our family and left flowers and notes. You are wonderful people!

"A people which takes no pride in noble achievements of remote ancestors will never achieve anything to be remembered by remote descendents." _McCauley

"Photographs don't discriminate between the living and the dead. In the fragments of time and shards of light that compose them, everyone is equal. Now you see us; now you don't. It doesn't matter whether you look through a camera lens and press the shutter. It doesn't even matter whether you open your eyes or close them. The pictures are always there. And so are the people in them." - Robert Goddard, one of my favorite authors.

RE: Belle Jenkins Cody
Looked at it the dates in the bio were for him since I could not find a memorial for him to link to. I added that the dates where his by putting He was born....
I hope this makes it clear. If I can do more to help let me know. I will be in Graham Co next week to visit family on my vacation...will be finishing photographing Hazie Brown then last time I ran out of memory on my photo card since it was the last grave yard I was doing on my vacation in May.
