Bio and Links
Bio Photo 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.

RE: Tobe E. Eller Jr.
So, you could not find the mother, Tobe, Sr.'s wife also buried in Triplett? I just added another photo request for a son that was not Find A Grave yet. No rush. Name: Carl Selmon Eller. Maybe someone else will pick up the request. I wish I had noticed it earlier. Thanks.

Thanks so much for taking the 5 photos for me and posting them so quickly. I appreciate very much. I don't know if you remember me but I met you at the Rowan County Library several years ago. We agreed to meet on a specific date and time. Your husband was mayor then. Not sure if he is now. I took a year break from doing genealogy on Ancestry and have just got up and running again about a month ago. Thanks Joy. And thanks for allowing us to use your photos. I will give you credit for each of them.
