Bio and Links
Bio Photo In the NC/SC area, I research my paternal family names of McCorkle, McManus, Taylor & Plyler and my maternal family names (mostly NC) of Miller, Gordon, Williams & Snead/Sneed. Other names further back in my ancestry of interest to me are Woods, Therrell, Paxton, Osborne, Lawson & Smothers.

I live in the western part of Union County, N.C. and have a strong interest in the history of my church, Bonds Grove UMC and the people buried there and also the cemetery at Weddington UMC where my mother was a member growing up. Bonds Grove UMC merged with Weddington UMC in 2013 and is now the Bonds Grove campus of Weddington UMC.

I have included people & photos of some non-related. If you discover your ancestors are on my list, please request a transfer and I will be happy to do so. If you have a correction, please go thru "edit" to make a correction request.

Please do not post death certificates on my memorials! Find-a-grave is a memorial website and not placed for genealogy research.


Note @ 2/25/13 - Recently I have been scanning and finding many of my photos out there that I have placed in find-a-grave. I am not happy about this. Only one person has ever asked permission. If you would like to use one of my photos, please be forthcoming and make a request. These photos are my relatives and ancestors and I have put forth a lot of effort in obtaining these. Thank you.....

RE: Harriet McCorkle Langley
I live in the D.C. area.
My maiden name is Ingley. Ethel Mae Wright is my grandmother and married Harvey Ingley. She had moved to D.C. When she was 16. She and all her siblings from Carrie's first marriage are buried in Unity in Fort Mill. For all her siblings and half siblings, I can't find anyone left really (cousins). I have very few pictures. And none from Carrie's generation and before. I am going to try to get down to Lancaster this summer. I have never been. Robert Lee wright's dc says he's buried in Taxahaw, but that doesn't even seem to be a place anymore?

RE: Harriet McCorkle Langley
Thank you so much! I agree with your conclusions. I had not thought about the census, but it does make sense and the fact that Anna would not name her first child, Harriett.
I found a newspaper announcement for Carrie and Robert Lee Wright, listing Carrie as the daughter of RM Langley, with no mother listed, which also concurs with the theory that her mother was Harriett and deceased.
Any idea where Harriett might be buried? Carrie is buried in Laurelwood. Robert Lee Wright's obit said he was buried in Taxahaw, but I can't find the cemetary or figure out his parentage.
If you have any pictures of the McCorkles, I would love to see them. I have none of Carrie or any of her siblings. I only have RM Langley's photo from ancestry. I do have Maggie Langley's photo( RM"s sister), but I don't think she is a relation of yours.
Both sides elude me. I need to take a trip down to Lancaster.
Thank you again!! Rebecca

Harriet McCorkle Langley
I believe Harriet is my 3X great grandmother, but it depends on her death date. Her possible daughter, Carrie, was born in 1887 and I belive Harriet died in 1890, but I can find no record of her death date. Her husband, RM Langely, remarried Anna Steele, but I can not find the date of their marriage. Without these facts, I can't confirm who is Carrie's mother.
Any thoughts or information is greatly appreciated.
Thank you, Rebecca

Re John M Miller #37529795
Hi Sandra,

As far as I can tell the names of children at this record are developing to be accurate.

Several of the names you listed are not common for Miller or Johnson families, that I have as ancestors & collaterals for this couple.

However, some good work has been done here.

Anyone can make a mistake with large families & families with similar names/ages of children within siblings & cousins.

We are at best family history works in progress!

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year too!

RE: William Henry Taylor
Thanks. Henry used to play dominoes with my dad a lot, Cassie could cook and crocket with the best of them. They raised hogs for consumption and shared some with our family. Of course we raised chickens but my mother could never wring the necks of the chicken and she would have to go over and gets Cassie Taylor to do it. Fun times in Robinson. I will add the photo to my tree.
