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 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.

William Henry Taylor
Hi Sandra: I wrote the tribute to Mr. Taylor in the Robinson Cemetery, McLennan, Texas and I noticed you had added a photo of Henry and I want to add it to my Ancestry Tree. If you read my tribute you will see that I knew the Taylor's. I was raised in Robinson and I have so many relatives there including my parents, grandparents and a sister.
