We live in western Rowan County, with easy access to cemeteries within a 15-20 mile radius located in Rowan, Iredell, and Davie Counties. I try to be smart with my trips out to these areas. Unfortunately, some requests are guesses causing wasted fuel and time for area volunteers. I've learned to double check requests by using the county cemetery records at our great Rowan County Library History room to avoid this frustration. In the process I've accumulated several lists myself.
Family names being researched for my husband's paternal side are Steele, Chambers, Graham, Knox, Brandon, Cowan, Wilson, Luckey, Locke; and his maternal side Walker, King, Quarterman, Way, Winn, Reade. My paternal side includes Hutcheson, Launius/Lanius, Durham, Chaffin, Dudley, Chiles, Smith, and Johnson; the maternal side is Ellis, Reynolds, Potts.
Even after several years of creating family trees for both sides in order to digitize the information from the paper and books left to us, I seem to continually have more data to add.
Memorials will be happily transferred unless they are our family. Ask for them through the Edit tab on the memorial, and you are welcome to use my memorial photos for genealogical purposes. Just give me credit.
Joseph Barber Thanks for the info on Joseph Barber not being found at Christ Episcopal Church Cemetery. That is what was on his death record which sometimes isn't correct. I will look into it and I made a note on the memorial.
RE: About Carl I miss him everyday, Beverly said she enjoyed listening to Carl and I give each other a hard time. But he was a great teacher for me, I have submitted an e-mail to Find A Grave requesting they transfer all his memorials to me, so far I have't received any response ----- but we know those guys move very slow. I'll keep in touch for sure, I was telling the wife the other day I thought it was about time to go over and take a few photos of the cemetery to send to you, my next week is full so ring my bell if you haven't heard from me in the next week or so, I know you don't want it to get over grown again. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Later, HOOT
