      Several months ago I discovered this about Ancestry.com. When you are
      searching and you've found all that you can possibly discover using the
      traditional spelling, try at least three letters of the first and/or last
      name with an asterisk. For example, try Jam* Bak* for James Baker and
      you'll get misspellings of the names such as Jamis Bakker, etc. Also, if
      you are searching for a marriage, use the first name of the woman and the
      last name of the man then vice versa. And use the three-letter asterisk
      trick too. For example, if you're looking for a marriage between a James
      Baker and an Elizabeth Grizzard, try Eli* Bak* then fill in the country and
      state to narrow the search. Or try James Grizzard and look under marriages
      in North Carolina for the results. I try every combination I can think of
      when I'm looking. I've found some pretty odd spellings for first names that
      way. THere are a lot of Georgia and NC marriages in Ancestry.com's
      database. Using alternate spellings can unlock those sometimes.

          Message 4 of 19 , May 27, 2003
            I'm not doing a commercial here but wanted to share another Ancestry tip. Not sure how many of our members subscribe to Ancestry's database, but I've found the census subscription to be well worth the money.
            One of the biggest problems with Ancestry's census package is that there are so many census years for which there is no index which really makes it much more difficult to search the unindexed years. The 1860, 1870, 1880, 1900, and 1910 censuses are all unindexed.
            Finally I'm getting around to the tip that I wanted to share. That is this. There is actually an index for some of those censuses. The 1860, 1870, and 1880 years can be searched by another Ancestry indexing system. This index is not linked to the census image but you can find the page number with this index .
            If you want to search for someone in 1860, 70, or 80 try the following index link:
            http://www.ancestry.com/search/rectype/census/ais/main.htm
            Hope this helps.

              I just subscribe to the census part, next I'll subscribe to the
              newspapers and etc. I have found all of my ancesters from the
              years that are indexed. (1930 census to). Would you believe I was
              looking for just such a website (as you sent)last night. Thank you
              so much. With my Nichols line, many of Arden Nichols' brothers and
              sisters moved out of the state. I am looking for them now. We
              know they were born in NC so I am doing a (b. in NC) search. We
              can't find the grandfather of Arden, but we might be able to find
              the grandfather of one of his brothers or sisters. The Ancesty.com
              fellow told me on the phone that you don't have to subscribe to the
              whole thing, just the census, newspapers or etc. which is much,
              much less. I started out looking for these census' on film (turn,
              turn, turn) and boy do I love doing it this way. Louise

                Dear Louise, The father of one of my cousins is LeRoy
                Nichols, mother Martha Ann Willoughby. I believe that
                Arden Nichols is her great uncle. I've been helping
                her with her Nichols line. Maybe we can help each
                other fill in gaps. My cousin was born and raised in
                Pitt County and still lives there. I am in Richmond,
                Virginia and conduct my research online and at the
                State Library of Virginia. In addition, I have easy
                access (now a mile from my house) to a Mormon Library
                Research Center, which by the way also has online
                records. I've done research in Greenville at the
                Joyner Library and at Sheppard and in Raleigh at the
                archives through GRIVA (Genealogical Research
                Institute of Virginia), which I joined a couple of
                years ago and which sponsors chartered bus trips to
                both Raleigh and to Washington, D.C. for research at
                the state archives in Raleigh, the national archives
                in D.C., the Library of Congress, and the D.A.R. Each
                time I've gone on a trip, I've filled in more gaps in
                my records. If there is anything I can look up for
                you, I'll be happy to do so. Later, Carol

                  Yes, I'd love to work with you on the Nichols family. This is
                  great!! What a coincidence--my father's name is Leroy Nichols
                  also, but he is the one that married Annie Lee Tripp. I'll send
                  you my outline from my Family Tree Maker. This is my line. Louise
                  Nichols, Champion (me) (Jan24, 1947), Leroy Jerry Nichols (Dec 31,
                  1910), Jerry Robert Nichols (March 23, 1883), George Nichols
                  (b.1842 census), Arden Nichols (b.1806 census), William Nichols and
                  Lydia Briley. (We know his wife and all of his children's names).
                  Here is where I have been stuck since 1986. There are just too
                  many Williams. I have started backward from another William that
                  immigrated from England in 1686. It seems clear that all the
                  Nichols from the area are his descendents. We know that most of
                  the descendents left the area. I'll get more specific this weekend
                  and send you what I have. I'll send you an invitation from my
                  website also. Louise

                    Dear Louise, Thanks! The Nichols "Williams" are like
                    my McGowan "Williams." There are five of them that I
                    know of, four of them being first cousins. As for the
                    fifth William, who has two sisters Nancy and Harriett,
                    and who is living with relatives, I don't know who his
                    parents were. With our combined information, though,
                    maybe we can make more sense of the Nichols' lineage
                    that I have been able to do with the McGowans. I do
                    admit,though, that each time I read messages like
                    yours, I learn something new. Our websites are real
                    knowledge boosters aren't they? I'll get back with you
                    on Monday. I've decided like Trish and some of our
                    Pitt County Family Researchers to carry my main files
                    in my car, and that really helps in comparing

                        Dear Louise, Thank you so very much. You have my
                        Cousin Linda in your line. Nichols women married
                        Slaughter and Worthington men, and I am related to the
                        familly through those lines. I believe that
                        Willoughby's are related to the Pippins, and Pippins
                        married into the Cherry line--my maternal
                        Cherry-McGowan families. They also married into the
                        Cannon family, which I am related to both from the
                        paternal Dail line and from the maternal Worthington
                        line. I've just gotten off work (evening shift), and
                        my notebook is in the car. I'll read through
                        everything you've sent very closely and get back with
                        you tomorrow on the connections I've found. For a
                        beginning, I believe that your Fannie Slaughter was
                        the daughter of Mary Polly Worthington and John
                        Slaughter. Mary Polly Worthington was the daughter of
                        my great, great, great, grandfather Spire
                        Worthington--I think I'm right about the number of
                        "greats" but could have left out one or two. Are you
                        familiar with the Worthington line? Later, Carol

                          Worthingtons lived next door to my Cooper family and my mother knew
                          them well. There are many small cemeteries on the old Nichols Road

                          Winterville--I think it is call Bell Arthur Road now). Robin

                          married he gave them each a farm along Nichols' Road. And guess
                          what? There are Nichols cemeteries all along the Road and Robin
                          has pictures of them. One of the grave yards is the Worthingtons.
                          Most of the grave yards are inclosed in a iron fence and you can
                          see them from the road. They are taken very good care of. Robin
                          takes care of two herself. My sister, Faye, and I went to Bell
                          Arthur/Winterville and just happened to be there during Sept 11,
                          2001. We were there only two days, but we saw many of the graves
                          that I am talking about. We also know where John Slaughter and
                          Mary Worthington are buried. We saw it somewhere on the internet
                          and we went looking for it.

                          In September there was a field of corn (with under growth) there
                          and you had to go through there to get to the grave. I had a flash
                          light and started through (it was getting dark). I went about half
                          way when the fellow came out and told us that there were rattle
                          snakes in there. Boy did I come out fast. He said the best thing
                          to do was to come back after harvest and the field would be
                          cleared. Of course, I live in California and didn't get to come
                          back. I just found the article below on the internet. It is
                          greee-at!! Must go--talk later Louise

                          While researching some Pitt County family members I happened across
                          a family cemetery covered in thorny thickets in the middle of a
                          tobacco field on Hwy 903 2.1 miles west of Winterville, NC. These
                          are the names I was able to capture.

                          Mary A.S. Slaughter
                          Mar 14 1861 - Aug 27 1861

                          Catherine Slaughter
                          1858-1876

                          John Slaughter
                          1816-1886

                          Rebecca Slaughter
                          1866-1886

                          Nancy S. Norris
                          1848 - 1875

                          These are the actual dates I removed from the tombstones, there are
                          possibly more in the thorny thicket but I was able to get these
                          names without sustaining too much injury.

                          There is a similar listing of Slaughters that has now been proven
                          to be incomplete compared to what I found. There is also a (DALE)
                          family cemetery across the road from the Slaughter Cemetery that is
                          also in the middle of the tobacco fields. I suggest all researchers
                          plan fall trips to Pitt County for the cemetery searches because
                          the tobacco fields seems to be where these small family cemeteries
                          are at. In the middle of the 3 family home sites I went to the
                          other day all 3 had fresh plowed fields exposing the cemeteries
                          which were tall thorn covered green area's that were 100%
                          surrounded by summer tobacco which would hide them during the
                          summer months making access impossible. October seems to be the
                          tobacco harvest thereby making the searches easier. The (SHIVERS)
                          cemetery at Winterville information is correct as posted except
                          that the cemetery is on the Shivers home site and is still owned by
                          Shivers.

                          Further lookups and information can be bargained,purchased or
                          beaten out of me.

                            Dear Louise, I was planning to do a summer cemetery
                            sleuthing tour. We lived on the County Home Road.
                            Linda is from the Bell Arthur area and attended
                            Winterville School, where she met my cousin Alfred Poe
                            Worthington, Jr. They were classmates. Four years
                            older than I, he was always my hero, so no wonder he
                            swept Linda off her feet! Yes, my Dail descendants are
                            also buried in the area, and Worthingtons, like the
                            Nichols, gave land to their children either when they
                            married or when they turned twenty-one, whichever came
                            first. I'll get back with you later. Carol

                              Hi Carol and Louise,

                              I have been reading your emails back and forth on the Nichols line and thought I would jump in. My husband is a descendant of Ardens son Silas (James brother). I have been trying to find as many cousins from Ardens various descendants. Carol, you are the first I have found from James' line. If you are in my area (Bell Arthur) and want a tour of the numerous Nichols cemeteries I will be glad to take you around. Send me a private email and I will give you my phone number. James and Emily as well as several of their children and grandchildren are buried on/near our farm. I will be glad to share my Nichols information with you. Louise I have not forgotten about those pictures you want.

                              Robin

                              Hi Carol,

                              You are so right about these families and more. I know the
                              Worthingtons lived next door to my Cooper family and my mother knew
                              them well. There are many small cemeteries on the old Nichols Road
                              (It is the long road that goes through Bell Arthur, just next to
                              Winterville--I think it is call Bell Arthur Road now). Robin
                              Nichols lives on that road and I think her line is also James
                              Nelson Nichols. She is very interested in her husband's family
                              line (Nichols). I don't know how much you know, but Arden Nichols
                              owned all of the land along that road in 1850. When his sons
                              married he gave them each a farm along Nichols' Road. And guess
                              what? There are Nichols cemeteries all along the Road and Robin
                              has pictures of them. One of the grave yards is the Worthingtons.
                              Most of the grave yards are inclosed in a iron fence and you can
                              see them from the road. They are taken very good care of. Robin
                              takes care of two herself. My sister, Faye, and I went to Bell
                              Arthur/Winterville and just happened to be there during Sept 11,
                              2001. We were there only two days, but we saw many of the graves
                              that I am talking about. We also know where John Slaughter and
                              Mary Worthington are buried. We saw it somewhere on the internet
                              and we went looking for it.

                              In September there was a field of corn (with under growth) there
                              and you had to go through there to get to the grave. I had a flash
                              light and started through (it was getting dark). I went about half
                              way when the fellow came out and told us that there were rattle
                              snakes in there. Boy did I come out fast. He said the best thing
                              to do was to come back after harvest and the field would be
                              cleared. Of course, I live in California and didn't get to come
                              back. I just found the article below on the internet. It is
                              greee-at!! Must go--talk later Louise

                              While researching some Pitt County family members I happened across
                              a family cemetery covered in thorny thickets in the middle of a
                              tobacco field on Hwy 903 2.1 miles west of Winterville, NC. These
                              are the names I was able to capture.

                              Mary A.S. Slaughter
                              Mar 14 1861 - Aug 27 1861

                              Catherine Slaughter
                              1858-1876

                              John Slaughter
                              1816-1886

                              Rebecca Slaughter
                              1866-1886

                              Nancy S. Norris
                              1848 - 1875

                              These are the actual dates I removed from the tombstones, there are
                              possibly more in the thorny thicket but I was able to get these
                              names without sustaining too much injury.

                              There is a similar listing of Slaughters that has now been proven
                              to be incomplete compared to what I found. There is also a (DALE)
                              family cemetery across the road from the Slaughter Cemetery that is
                              also in the middle of the tobacco fields. I suggest all researchers
                              plan fall trips to Pitt County for the cemetery searches because
                              the tobacco fields seems to be where these small family cemeteries
                              are at. In the middle of the 3 family home sites I went to the
                              other day all 3 had fresh plowed fields exposing the cemeteries
                              which were tall thorn covered green area's that were 100%
                              surrounded by summer tobacco which would hide them during the
                              summer months making access impossible. October seems to be the
                              tobacco harvest thereby making the searches easier. The (SHIVERS)
                              cemetery at Winterville information is correct as posted except
                              that the cemetery is on the Shivers home site and is still owned by
                              Shivers.

                              Further lookups and information can be bargained,purchased or
                              beaten out of me.

                              Dear Robin, Fantastic! The biggest gap in my family information is the place of burial. Another cousin, Trish Worthington Cobb, and I spend every spare minute

                                Dear Robin, Fantastic! The biggest gap in my family
                                information is the place of burial. Another cousin,
                                Trish Worthington Cobb, and I spend every spare minute
                                when we get together a couple of times a year going to
                                cemeteries and taking pictures of headstones--Trish is
                                the photographer: she takes the pictures, and I write
                                out the information. Actually to see my family
                                members' graves is like having my family with me. I
                                probably feel more strongly than some of our relatives
                                because I did not have the opportunity of even knowing
                                my generation of relatives in so many cases and never
                                had the chance to grow up with any of them. It's like
                                being an orphan and finally realizing that I have an
                                incredible family whose lives have spanned almost the
                                entire history of our country. I'll get an email off
                                to you as soon as I finish deleting my 200+ overnight
                                bulk mail measures so that I can restore my space!
                                Thanks so very much, Carol

                                Hi Robin, This is great!! A new cousin just around the corner, but I think it is Linda that is the descendent that lives around the corner from you. The

                                  Hi Robin,

                                  This is great!! A new cousin just around the corner, but I think
                                  it is Linda that is the descendent that lives around the corner
                                  from you. The "James Nelson Nichols house" is in the "Chronicles
                                  of Pitt Co." Many of Arden's sons could build a house. I wonder
                                  if James built the house in the book.

                                  You should go down and see that house on Nichols Road that I was
                                  telling you about. It is real cute. It looks like it was built
                                  about the same time as the one in the book. The road is just off
                                  of Bell Arthur Rd and it is called Nichols Rd. Just behind that
                                  house (about 50 ft) is a Strickland cemetery (Jeremiah Nichols b.
                                  1871) is also there. Jeremiah was one of Arden's sons also. My
                                  family (George Nichols) would come over to visit you aunt Christina
                                  (Little Bit) and all of the Nichols families there. They knew Bell
                                  Arthur very well. But George never lived there after he got
                                  married. Louise

                                    Louise,
                                    My husband's grandparents use to own it. I'll have to ask my father-in-law about previous owners. I have a picture of how it looked say over 30 years ago. It has had a lot of remodeling done to it over the years. The old Nichols two story which is on the same road has also had a lot of remodeling. I have not found an old picture of it yet. Aunt Dot Nichols lives there now, maybe she has an old picture of it. It was originally owned by Robert Nelson Nichols (Silas Nichols son). Back on Bell Arthur Road (formerly Nichols Rd.) there is another Nichols house. I think there is an old picture of it "Chronicles of Pitt Co." My father-in-law owns the farm around it and he and my brother-in-law had it remodeled and my brother-in-law still lives there. There use to be a two story (Nichols) house beside my house, but a tornado in the early 70's destroyed it. This house I think belonged to Heber Leon Nichols (Thomas Arden Nichols son). Thomas and his first wife Emily and two of there children are buried across the road.

                                    Hi Robin,

                                    This is great!! A new cousin just around the corner, but I think
                                    it is Linda that is the descendent that lives around the corner
                                    from you. The "James Nelson Nichols house" is in the "Chronicles
                                    of Pitt Co." Many of Arden's sons could build a house. I wonder
                                    if James built the house in the book.

                                    You should go down and see that house on Nichols Road that I was
                                    telling you about. It is real cute. It looks like it was built
                                    about the same time as the one in the book. The road is just off
                                    of Bell Arthur Rd and it is called Nichols Rd. Just behind that
                                    house (about 50 ft) is a Strickland cemetery (Jeremiah Nichols b.
                                    1871) is also there. Jeremiah was one of Arden's sons also. My
                                    family (George Nichols) would come over to visit you aunt Christina
                                    (Little Bit) and all of the Nichols families there. They knew Bell
                                    Arthur very well. But George never lived there after he got
                                    married. Louise

                                      Dear Robin, Hi! One of our members sent me yesterday a
                                      copy of my great grandmother's death certificate from
                                      the Pitt County Courthouse. The death certificate says
                                      that she was buried in the Robert Carney Burial
                                      Ground. Jacky Ann McGowan died June 18, 1925 at the
                                      age of 75. The death certifcate filled out by my
                                      grandfather,son-in-law of Jacky Ann, noted also that
                                      Jacky Ann was a widow. I've never been able to find
                                      out more than that her consort was a cousin, William
                                      McGowan. Jacky had at least four cousins named William
                                      Mcgowan. As far as I can find all but William George
                                      McGowan died before 1920--I'm guessing here, though,
                                      because I was relying on census records. Roger
                                      Kammerer from the Pitt County Family Researchers let
                                      me copy some McGowan records he had, and that
                                      informant said that William K. [Kinsey] McGowan never
                                      married. Of course, William Kinsey, son of William W.
                                      and Martha Ann Moore, was born around 1852, and I
                                      doubt that Roger's informant in the late 1999's knew
                                      this William personally. He may have the facts
                                      correct, or he may not have known if this William
                                      married because this William may have chosen not to
                                      reveal the fact. One of my cousins wrote that Latter
                                      Day Saint records show that this William was indeed
                                      the William who was Jacky Ann McGowan's husband. I'm
                                      hoping that Jacky's tombstone might tell me more. Her
                                      death certificate did not give either her parents'
                                      names or the name of her deceased husband. Daughter
                                      Jennie Secession McGowan gave her father's name upon
                                      her marriage only as William McGowan. I was wondering
                                      if you or any of our members has heard of the Robert
                                      Carney Burial Ground or cemetery. It is not online,
                                      and Bill Kittrell (also a member of the Pitt County
                                      Family Researchers) says he is not familiar with it
                                      but will look into it. The 1850 census shows Robert H.
                                      Carney and Elizabeth "Betsy" Hatton as the parents of
                                      Robert Carney who married Jennie L. McGowan, sister of
                                      Jacky Ann McGowan. Martin Moore, I see from the 1850
                                      census, was married to Cynthia Hatton. Martin Moore
                                      was the father of Perlina [Paulina] Moore, mother of
                                      Jennie L. and Jacky Ann McGowan. Jacky's daughter
                                      Jennie Secession McGowan was named for her Aunt
                                      Jennie--I've seen Jennie's name spelled "Jeanett," but
                                      Mama said it was Jennie. The Carneys lived in
                                      Greenville Township North of the Tar River. According
                                      to some of my relatives, Jennie grew up in the
                                      Pactolus Area; she attended Parker's Chapel Church. As
                                      for the Robert Carney Burial Ground, I do not know if
                                      it was simply a family cemetery located on the family
                                      property as many such cemeteries were or if it was on
                                      land given by the family for a cemetery, as Cherry
                                      Hill was. I also do not know if this cemetery is
                                      conveniently included in one of the books at Joyner
                                      Library on Pitt County Cemeteries. When I was there
                                      last month, I had never even heard of the Carney
                                      cemetery, so of course I didn't look it up. I had
                                      assumed that most of my relatives were buried in
                                      Greenwood because it was the cemetery used by my
                                      immediate family until the death of my Uncle Poe
                                      Worthington in 1968. Aunt Doris did not know that
                                      Grandpa Alfred (1871) had bought six cemetery plots in
                                      Greenwood, intending three of them for his children,
                                      so he was buried in Pinewood. Like a poor soul on "Who
                                      Wants to be a Millionnaire," I am now polling the
                                      audience. Thanks for any information on this cemetery
                                      or on William McGowan obituaries. Later, Carol

                                        Carol,
                                        I have not heard of the Robert Carney Burial Ground. I'll keep my eyes
                                        open. I am also a member of the Pitt County Family Researchers and
                                        Roger and Bill are wonderful sources for information. If the cemetery
                                        is still out there, I am sure Bill will run across it one day. My
                                        husbands materal grandmother was also from the Mcgowans. I have done
                                        some research on them, but not as much as I would like. I'll look
                                        through my Mcgowan stuff for any of these names.
                                        Robin

                                        Dear Robin, Hi! One of our members sent me yesterday a
                                        copy of my great grandmother's death certificate from
                                        the Pitt County Courthouse. The death certificate says
                                        that she was buried in the Robert Carney Burial
                                        Ground. Jacky Ann McGowan died June 18, 1925 at the
                                        age of 75. The death certifcate filled out by my
                                        grandfather,son-in-law of Jacky Ann, noted also that
                                        Jacky Ann was a widow. I've never been able to find
                                        out more than that her consort was a cousin, William
                                        McGowan. Jacky had at least four cousins named William
                                        Mcgowan. As far as I can find all but William George
                                        McGowan died before 1920--I'm guessing here, though,
                                        because I was relying on census records. Roger
                                        Kammerer from the Pitt County Family Researchers let
                                        me copy some McGowan records he had, and that
                                        informant said that William K. [Kinsey] McGowan never
                                        married. Of course, William Kinsey, son of William W.
                                        and Martha Ann Moore, was born around 1852, and I
                                        doubt that Roger's informant in the late 1999's knew
                                        this William personally. He may have the facts
                                        correct, or he may not have known if this William
                                        married because this William may have chosen not to
                                        reveal the fact. One of my cousins wrote that Latter
                                        Day Saint records show that this William was indeed
                                        the William who was Jacky Ann McGowan's husband. I'm
                                        hoping that Jacky's tombstone might tell me more. Her
                                        death certificate did not give either her parents'
                                        names or the name of her deceased husband. Daughter
                                        Jennie Secession McGowan gave her father's name upon
                                        her marriage only as William McGowan. I was wondering
                                        if you or any of our members has heard of the Robert
                                        Carney Burial Ground or cemetery. It is not online,
                                        and Bill Kittrell (also a member of the Pitt County
                                        Family Researchers) says he is not familiar with it
                                        but will look into it. The 1850 census shows Robert H.
                                        Carney and Elizabeth "Betsy" Hatton as the parents of
                                        Robert Carney who married Jennie L. McGowan, sister of
                                        Jacky Ann McGowan. Martin Moore, I see from the 1850
                                        census, was married to Cynthia Hatton. Martin Moore
                                        was the father of Perlina [Paulina] Moore, mother of
                                        Jennie L. and Jacky Ann McGowan. Jacky's daughter
                                        Jennie Secession McGowan was named for her Aunt
                                        Jennie--I've seen Jennie's name spelled "Jeanett," but
                                        Mama said it was Jennie. The Carneys lived in
                                        Greenville Township North of the Tar River. According
                                        to some of my relatives, Jennie grew up in the
                                        Pactolus Area; she attended Parker's Chapel Church. As
                                        for the Robert Carney Burial Ground, I do not know if
                                        it was simply a family cemetery located on the family
                                        property as many such cemeteries were or if it was on
                                        land given by the family for a cemetery, as Cherry
                                        Hill was. I also do not know if this cemetery is
                                        conveniently included in one of the books at Joyner
                                        Library on Pitt County Cemeteries. When I was there
                                        last month, I had never even heard of the Carney
                                        cemetery, so of course I didn't look it up. I had
                                        assumed that most of my relatives were buried in
                                        Greenwood because it was the cemetery used by my
                                        immediate family until the death of my Uncle Poe
                                        Worthington in 1968. Aunt Doris did not know that
                                        Grandpa Alfred (1871) had bought six cemetery plots in
                                        Greenwood, intending three of them for his children,
                                        so he was buried in Pinewood. Like a poor soul on "Who
                                        Wants to be a Millionnaire," I am now polling the
                                        audience. Thanks for any information on this cemetery
                                        or on William McGowan obituaries. Later, Carol

                                          Dear Robin, Thanks so very much. I'm thinking, though,
                                          that it must be somewhere on Carney property. Grandpa
                                          Alp (Alfred) bought plots in Greenwood Cemetery in
                                          1934 when Grandma Jennie died--June 1934. Before then,
                                          McGowans were buried in cemeteries where other
                                          relatives were buried(Cherry Hill, Brooks, etc.) and
                                          in church cemeteries. However, I did not find Grandma
                                          Jacky in Red Banks or Reedy Branch, and with no death
                                          certificate and Greenwood incomplete on line, I
                                          assumed that Grandpa had had her buried in Greenwood
                                          and that I would run across it there one day by
                                          walking through and searching each grave. Since
                                          Grandma Jacky and her sister, Jennie L., were very
                                          close, I am not surprised that Jacky was buried in her
                                          sister's husband's family cemetery and even less
                                          surprised when I realized that Carney's maternal line
                                          was Hatton--the McGowan maternal line. McGowans liked
                                          to be together in death as well as in life; that much
                                          I did know and was surprised not to find all of them
                                          together. The Hardee (my Hardee-McGowan-Worthington
                                          line) maternal line was also McGowan, and McGowans and
                                          Hardees are buried together, but I didn't find Jacky
                                          with them either. People are so interesting! Later,
