We love getting out there and documenting the neglected and out of the way cemeteries. I pray our efforts will be useful to others who are searching for their loved ones. Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior knows all His children, even the ones who have no markers. Have a conversation with Him today, you'll be glad you did! |

|Jeffrey Davis||RE: Hollands|
I received information regarding Forest Holland. He committed suicide "over losing a girl friend that he was crazy about". I am not for sure of who the girl was or how he "lost" her. I did hear "that a few years back the Aycock family wanted to move him out of the graveyard", not for sure if the girl was an Aycock. If you know anything related to that I would be interested to hear about it.
Forest's mother, Appie Gurley Holland, committed suicide in 1925 after losing her husband, Milford Jarvis Holland in 1920 and being overwhelmed supposedly by his death, taking care of the farm and their young children. As the story was told to me, they both used the same gun.

I found an obituary for one of David's children, Claudius Vance (C.V.) Young at the Johnston County Heritage Center.
His burial was listed at the "family cemetery in the Peacock Crossroad section," with is Meadow, the location for the David C. Young Cemetery. I'm wondering if C.V. Young is indeed buried there with his Father and Mother and his grave is just not marked.
Interesting, to say the least. On our next trip up that way to my Wife's family cemetery near Meadow, the Jernigan Family Cemetery on Hannah Creek Road, it'll be worth checking out.
|James E Bass||Stott Cemetery, Wilson NC|
My grandmother was an Ellis and there are many Ellis family members buried in this cemetery.
We would love to visit the cemetery, but can't find Tarts Mill Pond in Google maps.
Can you provide directions on how to find it?
It would be much appreciated. We are traveling to Wilson, NC next week, 12 April, to see the grave markers for our Bass great grandparents.
Thank you for all you are doing!
|Joseph Hancammon||David C. Young Cemetery|
Thank you very much for transferring David, Louisa, and Fanny Young.
The first time my Wife and I saw this cemetery in Meadow, it hadn't been cleaned up in some time--trees and shrubs completely hid it from the highway. My wife's Brother had told it where it was located.
|Deborah S||RE: Reddick Webb|
Hi! You folks do such awesome work, thank you so much for everything you have done in Wilson County and surrounding areas.
I admit I am confused. It looks like you own the Redick Webb memorial 118362393. I am not sure which memorial you would like to have transferred to you. But I know who you mean as asking somebody to do a transfer and getting no response or a refusal. I don't remember if I have ever asked the person you mention to transfer anything to me or not. I think I have sent her requests to update or link people but not sure that got done. I wonder if she is no longer active? Unfortunately that happens. Billy Womble was doing great work but all of a sudden dropped off the map a couple of years ago. Not sure if these folks have passed away or simply lost interest or got sick or what.
The only thing I can suggest is to contact the FindaGrave "authorities" and explain the challenge you are facing. I am not sure they can or will "force" anybody to do a transfer, or do it for them, but you can ask.
I sympathize and wish I could help.
|Tracie Curnell||Mary Beth Keen Pearson|
I have no problem transferring the memorial, but she is buried in Buckhorn Cemetery, its the only place I went that day. What do you have for her burial location?
|William Perry Deans Sr||Lutora Deans|
Do you have a location of Lutora Deans grave site.
She was one of Andrew Jackson Deans daughters and married Rufus Renfrow / Rentfrow in 1885 reportedly in Tarbora NC. After that no record. Rufus remarried Mary Jane Finch in 1888. Any help will be appreciated.
|Jeffrey Davis||RE: Hollands|
I do not have that story off hand but have contacted someone that has given me some good information about another Holland in the same family that left home and there was limited information regarding them. Will let you know if I find out anything.
On a different subject, related to Memorial Church Cemetery you are listed as the original photographer of the cemetery. Do you recall a small gravestone for Baby Girl Davis? Would have been near Thomas and Ruth Davis. A couple of persons have looked, it seems to be gone.
Thank you for all your efforts, you have helped document a great deal of my family tree. Wanted to give you some updates. 118421720 is Jennette the son of Ellen and Jesse Holland, not Jennettie a daughter. Also, Forest Holland (118422734) is the son of Milford Jarvis Holland and Appie Gurley Holland my great grandparents. Thank you!
