|Bio and Links|
We live in western Rowan County, with easy access to cemeteries Rowan Co., Iredell County, and Davie Co., within the 15-20 mile limit of my location.|
Nearby Third Creek Presbyterian Church, Cleveland, Rowan County, maintains a pre-Revolutionary War cemetery as part of its grounds; I've been privileged to help update the very detailed records, totaling over 650 gravestones that are visible. The church is willing to look up information on people with grave sites whether they have a marker or not.
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 on his maternal side are Walker, King, Quarterman, Way, Winn, Reade. My paternal family side is Hutcheson, Launius/Lanius, Durham, Chaffin, Dudley, Chiles, Smith, and Johnson and 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.

Years back I did a lot of research on the Sprys of Davie county and put many on Find a Grave. Verdie was James second wife and James may be buried beside his first wife. James and Verdie have a daughter, Hessie Overcash, buried at Cleveland Baptist. If I don't resolve it when I go to Salisbury I will delete them and let someone else find them.
Thank you for your help,
|Record Keeper||James & Verdie Chambers|
Thank you for your message. I have been trying to figure out why I put James & Verdie at Cleveland Baptist. James death certificate says he is buried in Cooleeme & Verdie's says she is buried in Cleveland. My guess is that I got the information from obits. I first began putting information on Find A Grave because for many years I copied obits and there would be other obits on there that were not my family. I didn't want to throw away this valuable information so put it on Find A Grave. I am going to leave them there until I go to Salisbury and go through obits again.
