Bio and Links
Bio Photo I welcome corrections and additional information on any memorial that I have posted. FindAGrave is a wonderful resource for loved ones and family researchers, so I want the information to be as complete and accurate as possible. Thanks to all the other contributors who accept the edits I send to them. With the new edit system, we really do not communicate directly anymore, but I wanted to express my thanks here!

One reason I take gravestone photos, do research and compile data is to share the results with anyone who would like to use the information. Therefore, any photographs I have taken or any information that I have posted on FindAGrave may be used freely by any person for personal, family history and/or genealogy purposes. It is not necessary to ask my permission or give me credit.

Currently compiling a family history book: "The Groome Family of Groometown-Guilford County, North Carolina" (Caswell, Rockingham and Guilford counties). Please feel free to contact me if you have information on this family that you would like to include in the book.

Hi Marti,
I added a photo of Bob Ham taken by my dad in 1945. You may do with it as you please. I thought it might go well under the gravestone photo listing his military service.
Thank you for your work in FindAGrave,

Anna Jones York
The gravesite of Anna Jones York is within the old boundaries of Baptist Cemetery. The Pineville Cemetery sign post depicted is on the west end of the cemetery grounds. Mrs. York is buried on the east side of Baptist not far from the road that divides Baptist from Hillcrest Cem. established 1952. There are 3 distinct cemeteries on the grounds. Pineville was the last established by Farrish Manning, owner of Johnson Funeral Homes. It lies S & W of Baptist Cem. grounds. Baptist occupies the middle of the 3 cemeteries and is encircled by a road. Hillcrest lies east of Baptist. Today, all of the properties are owned by Johnson Funeral Home and their corporate name for all is Pineville Roads Cemeteries. This confuses people, especially those with little knowledge of our community custom in retaining the original names of all three. The original Pineville Cemetery is located 20 miles NE of Monroeville at the old village site of Pineville.

McGirt family descendant
HI!! I am browsing the internet looking for something and stumbled upon this website with information about my "family." I am a descendant of the McGirts - via my father, Leon Gene Miller, son of Carson Benton Miller and Ella Lucille Bass, and grandson to Carson Alexander Miller and Beulah Benton McGirt. This is so interesting to me to find information about family heritage. Thank you for starting this journey and hopefully we will be able to have some contact (I also sent you an email).

Hey there! :)

I have passed by this cemetery a thousand times and this week is the first time I ever stopped to have a look. I had no idea what the name of it was or who was there. I found a couple of people I was distantly related to though. SCORE! LOL

I didn't get everybody there. It clouded up on me and I had to leave. Some of those old stones are unreadable whether it's cloudy or sunny. I'd like to go back and finish up sometime.

Let me know if I have posted anybody else you recognize and I'll fix 'em and transfer 'em.

Thanks! :)

Thank you for sending me such a nice message! I was afraid you might think I was stalking your memorials. Ha, ha!

I went there to check it out and verify the location. (I thought it was gonna be on the other side of Lumberton.) For some reason I hated to leave without taking photos of every grave, which I rarely do, and I also took a photo of every marker I could safely get to in the African American cemetery beside it. (Water Hole Cemetery) I enjoyed myself even though it was hot and my helpers were planning a mutiny. Ha!

Thanks again! And I swear I'm not stalking your memorials. (On purpose, anyway.)
