Hello Everyone - I have been doing genealogy for 12 years-off/on. I found Find-A-Grave while doing research and think it a great indexing site for graves. And a great way to help families locate each other. I worked in the oil industries for about 22 years. Was a single mom raising two sons. I am biased but they turned out wonderful. Not only are they good looking but they have wonderful productive successful lives. Now I just recently married a wonderful retired marine and I do genealogy research. Happy Hunting Everyone - Gwen
RE: Sarah Gathings I got Sarah Ann (Wyatt) Gathings photo while on our trip out East along with many other Wyatt because she was my wife's second cousin. I see that you were a nee Gathings. How are you related? Do you know if Sarah and Joseph had any children?
RE: Josephine Dutton FAG #91882444 I believe Josephine to be the daughter of Robert Howze Dutton Find A Grave#32322114 buried at Long Pine Methodist Church Cemetery, Anson County, and Margaret Gathings Dutton. I have not found a burial place for Margaret. I believe she is the daughter of Roy Barney Gathings and Cora Hinson Gathings buried at Gum Springs Baptist Church Cemetery at Lilesville. If this is the correct Margaret she was born December 3, 1927 and died July 14, 2005. This is from Social Security death index. She died in Monroe and last address was Lilesville. According to Robert Howze Dutton's death index he was divorced at time of death so Margaret could be buried anywhere. There is no listing for her where the child is buried. If I would guess I would say that she was buried at Anson Memorial Park at Wadesboro which has not been fully entered on Find A Grave.
Memorial# 69322692 Hello. I am not related. I wanted to let you know a link was recently made to one of your memorials. I only took the photograph and searched for a home. The link is for Edith Winchester, likely the youngest daughter, of Henry Alonzo and Margaret C Gathings Winchester. Born in Union County, North Carolina on Jun 10 1887 and died Jul 29 1887. RIP. Greg
David & Jerry Gathings Hi,thank you for the kind words.The transfers are done,if you come across any other family of yours I've done just let me know.It doesn't matter to me how close or how far apart the link may be. LaDonna
RE: Sarah Hartman 8749236 She is puzzling that's for sure! Makes one wonder if its even the same person, or two with very simialr names/dates.
Since death certificates are notorious for incorrect data; meaning they're only as accurate as the informants knowledge of them was, I generally go with what's on the stone and put some sort of explanation in the bio area. I will happily add any info, from any contributor. This lets the viewing patron make up their own mind.
Also, unless known otherwise, what's on the stone is what we are suppose to post in the memorials.
I'll put this name on the back burner for now as I'm trying to finish up another cemetery, but in mean time if you come up with anything else - likes marriage records, please let me know. If we had verifiable marriage dates/places it would sure help!
RE: 23207759 John Joseph Canty I'm sorry but my health has tanked and I am unable to drive to Calvary cemetery right now. I don't know if my health will improve.
I have a link to free early newspapers in California. You might have some luck with it.
FYI - I don't have a photo for that memorial which means I added that when I first started and did not have a digital camera. When I wrote down names, I tended to stay in one area and cover 2 to 5 rows in a section.
Calvary cemetery charges $25 for genealogy research. As a result, I send for death certificates because they are cheaper - they cost $21.
I'm sorry I can't be of help and I wish you the best of luck. I know what it is to search for people. It took me 6 years to find my paternal great grandfather.
I did find a minimal obituary for him and transcribed it. Unfortunately, it was not very informative.
