|Bio and Links|
I have been interested in genealogy since about 1995. I live in Mount Airy, North Carolina. I believe this website to be a valuable tool to amateur and professional genealogists if used with the "trust but verify" mentality.|
I add memorials to cemeteries where I have personally walked and photographed each headstone/marker. If you find one of my memorials without a photo, please be patient. I am adding them as I can. If you would like for me to add it more quickly, please just go through the normal photo request option.
I do my best not to duplicate memorials. I index my photos and add the names as inscribed on the headstone/marker to the cemeteries in which I find them. I may edit that information later as I find additional data. I do not feel it necessary for me to arbitrarily delete a memorial that I created if you move a memorial into that cemetery after the fact and don't disclose that information. This is FIND a Grave.
If you have created a memorial and had it in a different cemetery or a virtual cemetery in lieu of finding the correct cemetery, simply say so and I will be happy to delete mine and add any photos I have to your memorial if needed.
My lines include the Killoughs (mostly Mississippi) and Wolfes (Tennessee and Texas) on my mother's side and Johnson's and Stancliff's (mostly from the Philadelphia/South Jersey areas).
My wife's lines include the Hiatt's that have been in the Surry County, NC area for about 200 years.
Feel free to use any of my photos.

Would you be able to check on some burials in this cemetery as well as take photos of monuments if they are available? Another contributor has them buried in a cemetery by the same name in Wilkes Co. I have death records showing the undertaker was of Lowgap. Thank you. Bev
No real information to share, just taking time to thank you both for the work y'all have been doing for cemeteries in Surry County, my maternal ancestral home.
If I can help you in any way (records, photos, etc), please let me know.
|Mary Stephens Scrudder||Mary Jane Wolfe memorial|
Just a quick research update for Mary Jane McHone Wolfe (84768142). I am embarrassed to admit that I had submitted the wrong parents for Mary Jane. It has taken me months to track down the right parents.
Here is the correct information:
mother: Emma Savannah Owen McHone #51111209
father: James M. Tobias 'Toby' Mchone (have not found a death date or burial place. It appears that he lived between Stokes and Surry counties. and he died after 1910 (living in Surry county on 1910 US census).
I apologize for the mistake.
