A FindAGrave Link: Pleasant Grove United Methodist Church Cemetery a cemetery I have taken to see that photos are completed for each memorial, and, that genealogy is done to link them to their ancestors and descendant memorial. NOTE: The Following Link Is To My Ancestry Tree For The Cemetery And An Ancestry Membership, Or An Invitation, Is Needed To Access. Ask Me For An Invitation If Needed And One May Be Sent To Your Provided Email. Sleepy Hollow II Pleasant Grove Cem 1831
Hello, Glad to meet you. I am on call for memorial photos. I live in Weddington, NC (Union County) This site has been great, as I seem to make new friends and meet many cousins that I may have not known otherwise. My hobbies include photography and genealogy, this site has my interest on both of these. Family ancestor lines keep expanding and I keep learning history. A brief detour about ancestors discovered.
They are family members. They are immigrants, settlers, innovators, leaders, farmers, shoemakers, plumbers, cattle ranchers, horse brokers, locomotive engineers, planners, household mothers and fathers, stone masons, iron workers, foundry owners, grocers, merchants, infants, tailors, moulders, ice merchants, engineers, builders, developers, realtors, Priests, ministers, deliverymen, cabinetmakers.
Unknowingly, I lived places ancestors had previously settled. A 3rd Great grandfather had emigrated from Bavaria, Germany to Rochester, N. Y., where I was born. Another 3rd Great grandfather emigrated from Saarland Germany to Steuben County, N.Y., near where I went to college. A 6th Great grandfather lived and died in Addison, Vermont, 35 miles line of sight from where our three children were born and raised in Brookfield, VT. The builder of that home was a veteran of the War of 1812. The home was built prior to prior to 1800, the timbers were first growth Spruce, Ash and Maple. Beams over 40-FT, boards wider than 42-IN. Its first owner had moved from Connecticut in 1820, leaving the County my maternal ancestors lived. My 10th Great grandfather settled Stamford prior to 1680. Even now, where I live in the Carolinas, I learn of a Grand Aunt having lived in Hendersonville, nearer our present home in the Carolinas.
The education continues with military heroics. Learning a 7th Great grandfather was KIA on board on Lake Erie during the French and Indian War in 1756, seeing many ancestors with service in the Revolutionary War. A 5th Great grand uncle, Joseph Turner, a Revolutionary War Veteran is buried in Fort Ann, NY at the Blossom Farm Cemetery. More, reviewing ancestors pension papers for the War of 1812. Reading service records of 2nd Great grandfathers who served in the duration of the Civil War. Hearing from a Great niece of his who has the sabre he used. The opportunity to hold a Great grandfather's military discharge orders from the Spanish American War. Opportunity to read commendations of a Father-In-Law's service in WW II during his 4 years and 4 months service from Northern Africa through Italy and finishes the campaign in Eastern Germany. Meeting a cousin whose Uncle served WW I and WWII as a Medical Doctor. Learning of the citations of ancestors' received during the Korean War. Not to ignore recent military heroes.
This is a journey. Listen to the stories they have.
Last Checked, only 40 of my 1,899 suggested "edits" sent (family lineage) have been declined. Thank You.
When someone says they are a Tenth generation descendant, you may ask them who their other 255 6th Great grandparents are. ; ). We have 128 4th Great grandparents, 512 6th Great grandparents and 8,192 10th Great grandparents. Last report I have located memorials for 16 of my 10th Great grandparents.

|KATHY||RE: Memorial #148202565|
Good evening Mr. Hetzler. I received your message of thanks for the note I left on your Mom's memorial. It was my pleasure.
Mr. Hetzler, I do not know you or any of your family members, so I am glad that you didn't mind my leaving that note on your Mom's memorial. Most likely, I "happened upon" your Mom's memorial by doing some random browsing.
I definitely enjoyed reading her story. I am so sorry for your recent loss, Mr. Hetzler. I know how it feels, believe me. In fact, by the time I finish composing this reply message, it will be August 28, which is the seventh anniversary of my Father's passing; my Mom passed away only seven weeks later.
That was a real one-two punch, back-to-back.
Time has somewhat eased the pain, but it still hurts. Sorry to ramble like this. Again, I do understand how it feels. Thank you sir for "listening". Nice to make your acquaintance. Take care.

Thank you for the photo and letting me know you posted it.
|Ray Norkett||RE: Pleasant Plains Cemetery|
they are a lot of graves unmarked i sometime put death certificates on page.
I visited Holy Sepulchre and talked to a supervisor,
there appears to be no headstone in Public Area VIII
Date of Burial: 03/09/1951
Public Section 8

Just fulfilled your request for the above stated person. I know that Steve Hale had also searched for this headstone and was unsuccessful. I have met Steve and get the feeling from him that he is both invseted in his searches and accurate. As far as this stone is concerned? The cemetery recently came out with new maps of each section that are more explanatory than in the past which is why I think I was able to find this stone. It truly has nothing to do with Steve's ability to track things down as his record is quite good.
|Spanish American War||03 July 2015|
Your ancestor, John P. Weyerhauser, is remembered by the Sons of Spanish American War Veterans.
|Joel Shore||RE: Memorial# 147079712|
You're very welcome, Greg. And, thanks for the kind words. I agree with you, especially in a place like Mt Hope where probably a majority of the graves...or at least the older graves...are unmarked.
|RO Williams||RE: Fletcher Family|
I also am not related to the Fletchers. I was doing some research for the Williston Cemetery at the Library in Columbia and while I am there I usually look up some stuff for other memorials that are lacking family connections. This is where I got the info (obituary) that I passed on to Susan Williams. I think the obit was from the The State newspaper microfilm files.
|RO Williams||RE: Fletcher Family|
what is the question?
|Fran Bundy||RE: Memorial# 26915108|
Sure thing! I betting he was related, but that's a tough one to verify. If I locate any additional information, I'll let you know.
