Bio and Links
Bio Photo I finally had to change my profile picture. The old picture of my youngest son was quite out of date considering he's going into 2nd grade next year :( He still enjoys going out to take pictures with me so there's still hope for him!
There are so many old cemeteries in this part of NC so we are trying to post as many interments as possible to help all you researchers out. Also, most of the stones they used for markers in the 1800's are not standing up to the elements very well so it's a race against time to get as many pictures as possible. If you are looking for more NC relatives, I am working with the team of volunteers at They have surveyed and taken pictures of a ton of cemeteries in central NC.

One of the most popular questions I get emailed is asking permission to use "my" photos. The short answer is yes, you can use any pictures I have taken. I don't require references or accreditation because that's not why I joined the website and volunteer to take photos. I don't consider them my property unless you use them to somehow make millions of dollars (then I'd appreciate a small kickback) :)

October 2016

Work on Alamance Memorial Garden is going well. There are 18 sections and a mausoleum and I have completed 10. The area I'm doing now is a very active part of the cemetery so it's been hard to go there when they aren't performing a service or someone is visiting.
Fun fact: I have approved 13,116 edits since they switched to this new edit system. That's about 1/3 the memorials I have created! Great job fellow Findagravers!That being said I've had an increase in angry emails about incorrect edits and memorial layouts. When did the world get so angry? A polite suggestion will get the same result. I typically get around 50 edits a day and I don't have time to investigate accuracy. I'm depending on the person sending the edit to actually have it correct.

RE: John Dixon
THANKS! Let me know if you need anything else from me. I also found that the wrong spouse is linked to Mary for one of her husbands and will address that one with the person handling that page.

Thanks again.

RE: John Dixon
Oh, I forgot the most compelling reason for Mary to NOT be the daughter of John Gurney Dixon.

JG Dixon's son Arthur was born 22 April 1867 in Kansas.

Mary was born 9 Mar 1867, the same year, a month earlier, in North Carolina.

Both had fathers John (G or H)Dixon, both had mothers Georgia (or Georgiana). But are two different couples.
Sorry, guess I should have led with that.

Thanks again, and sorry for all the extraneous information.

(I do have further information from censuses showing Arthur in NC in 1880 with his uncle (JG's brother) and Mary with both parents in NC later.)

RE: John Dixon
There is another John (Henry) Dixon that married a Georgiana Evans (Not Herrick) in eastern NC, I am acquainted with that family, his GGgranddaughter lives next door.
That Georgiana was born in NC, not Canada. I think that because John Dixon and Georgia(na)Evans matched that many assumed they were the same couple.

The John (Henry) Dixon I am familiar with was born in England and the one you have, John Gurney Dixon has a long family history in Chatham County.

so as odd as it may seem to have two separate couples with such similar names, well it happens!lol

Take a look at the Obit I will post for John Gurney Dixon and if you want take a peak at my tree on Ancestry, it is under tcustis63, Dixon tree.

Thanks and maybe we can get this untangled.

Mary Long Gravitte-37950107
On the memorial page for Mrs. Gravitte you posted 2 photos. The top photo is the incorrect photo. That photo belongs to Mary Gravitte who died in 1905. This Mary died in 1977, so the 2nd photo is the correct one. Please remove the top photo.
Thank you :)
