Native of North Carolina.|
I became interested in family history in May 2010 when my mother's sister passed away. All three sisters had passed within three years! It made me realize that the older generation was leaving and if I wanted to know more about our family, I better start asking questions! I got very interested in family history and discovered that I really enjoy visiting eastern NC cemeteries, taking pictures of headstones, and figuring out who the people were and if/how they were related to me. I focus on Martin County (my dad's family) and Wilson County (my mom's family).
I am a member of the DAR. John Jackson Morgan Sr of Nash County, NC is the first Revolutionary War patriot I have been able to prove my connection to.
This hobby (obsession?) has been a real blessing in many ways. The best part is meeting relatives I never knew I had, and becoming friends with some of the most wonderful people I've ever known.
When contacting me about a memorial or photo I have added, PLEASE INCLUDE THE MEMORIAL NUMBER.

|HARALD WOELFL||RE: FRANK MUSTARD RICE|
THANK YOU FOR YOUR REPLY DEBORAH. I WAS INTERESTED IN FRANK MUSTARD RICE MEMORIAL BECAUSE I CAME ACROSS HIM IN AN OLD WESTERN VIDEO MOVIE. FRANK RICE PLAYED NEXT TO ANOTHER ACTOR AND I HAVE YET TO BE ABLE TO IDENTIFY WHICH ACTOR WAS WHICH...I BELIEVE THAT YOU ALSO HAVE THE OTHER ACTORS NICKNAME WAS GRAVY AND THAT YOU ALSO HAVE HIS MEMORIAL. I WISH THAT I COULD SAY THAT I HAVE GOOD NEWS ABOUT THE ONE OR TWO VIDEOS THAT I SAW WITH BOTH OF THESE ACTORS, BUT I DO NOT. I REMEMBER THAT YOUTUBE DELETED THE VIDEO. BUT I AM FREQUENTLY WATCHING THE OLD WESTERN MOVIES n HOPE TO COME ACROSS GRAVY n MUSTARD AGAIN.
Are you by chance related to any of the Stokelys of Chowan County, NC?

HAPPY FRIDAY !!!
my wife was Debora and a DAR. Morton was the kin.Not the signer, the brother.
We are three people searching through the cemetery records, etc for Veterans. Recently, we expanded into photographing all of the stones.
Because of the immense work involved, we are looking for volunteers who could help out in many ways. Researching, typing, photographing and eventually physically locating the interred VeTs. If you are any like minded people out there would like to help, please contact me.
By the way. In 2010, there were 450 identified Vets. Today, +/- 850. On paper, 1400 ! in a 26 acre cemetery.
Thank you for submitting the headstone photo. His memorial has been moved. Thanks again. DMA.
