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.

Dear Joy,

Thank you ever so much for posting the joint tombstone photo of ANNIE HARDEN NORMAN and husband HUGH CLIFTON NORMAN and a close-up of Annie's showing her dates of birth & death (Walthourville Presbyterian Cemetery).

I will place a "Photo Request" on HUGH CLIFTON NORMAN'S Memorial page (#43647212) so you can get credit for photos for him too; so will you also post the joint tombstone photo and close up of Hugh's dates of birth & death?

With great appreciation,
Karen M. Freeman

Thanks for taking the time to check on Richard Norman. I am surprised no one has done extensive research on him yet. Your info will surely help locate his grave. Thanks again.
