- Hi all,
I am in Michigan and can not come down to NC for a while. I was wondering
if someone lives near this cemetery that is in this email to take some
pictures of this headstone? Thank you in advance. John Nichols
According to the Cemetery Book, there is a Thomas buried in the Askew
Cemetery in the Falling Creek area.
