Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am descended through the Presley/Pressley, Pope, Clontz, Rogers, Cook, Franklin, Henson, and other families who have been in Haywood County, NC for at least since the mid 1800's. I work full time, and genealogy is a favorite pastime of mine (although I enjoy it enough that I think IT could be my full time job!).
I carry a kit in my vehicle to carefully spruce up markers for taking pictures. It's just a small plastic box with a squirt bottle of water (and a 2 liter refill nearby I keep in the car), a dishwashing-type scrub brush, a somewhat larger scrub brush (both plastic bristles), some plastic paint scrapers, a small whisk broom, and some electronics duster (aka canned air, which my wife thinks I'm crazy for buying!) and some toothbrushes. Makes for much better pictures. I also carry some grass shears, but they won't fit in the kit.

RE: Alcotts

No, I'm not a relative. While researching info on a family relative, I stumbled upon In Memorial bio/obits for college alumni and another site, and adding the info from both sites is my way of giving back to Find A Grave which has been a big help working on family trees. I also think it is kind of nice to give a "face" to the names of the departed. I also try to find missing info from Family Search, mostly missing birth dates or spouses.

Hi David, thank you very much for correcting the cemetery that Mr. & Mrs. Rogers are buried in. I have moved her page to the correct cemetery and created a page for her husband. Would you mind going to his page and adding the stone pic? Thank you very much for taking the pic and the correction. I always appreciate help.

Sincerely, Vickie

Hi David,

I saw your message regarding the memorial page issue. I left the lady a message also, since their is a major problem where adding a new memorial page is overtaking an existing memorial page.

I sent the info to Findagrave since they will have to look into getting this issue corrected or stopped.

I saw your name and I live in Union County, NC where there are a lot of Pressley family.

If you have any one buried in Union County and need a headstone photo, please let me know.

Have a great weekend,
Vicky Matlock

Thank you for the photo and update for Virgil Chambers. It's good to know where cremated family members can be honored. If he is related to you I will be glad to transfer to you. Mattie Jane

I surely do appreciate your help.
