  • Great "roots" trip, but I have one question. What do you mean by "my family lived in one for my first three years" referring to cemeteries?

    That has the ring of Halloween to it.

  • I thought I took care of the cemetery phase of my life in an earlier blog. My father became the sexton (caretaker) of Lone Oak Cemetery in Lewisburg when I was a baby. We lived in a house on the cemetery property. When I was 3 he went to work at London Funeral Home in Lewisburg, and we moved away from the cemetery. Later my father and Aubrey Duncan bought that funeral home as well as one in Cornersville. My family moved to Londons when I was 17. I lived upstairs over the funeral home for 3 years. My sister was 4 when we moved, so she grew up there. It wasn't morbid at all.

  • Tom Patterson, Clerk of the Session, Coddle Creek ARP Church, here.

    Glad you were able to visit our church and cemetery. Wish some of us had been there to assist you. If you visit again, let us know ahead of time.

    We have a Cemetery Directory. If you would like a copy, let me know, and I'll have it sent to you.

    I am wondering if some in the family would like to erect a small stone noting Ann Huggins Hains grave.

    We have a Museum on our campus and have folders of information on the families buried in the cemetery. Any information on the Hains family you would wish to contribute will be gladly received.

    Many families looking for information go to the Rowan County Library, main campus, in Salisbury to view their extensive records. In earlier days Coddle Creek was a part of Rowan County which explains why the records are there rather than in Iredell County where the church is presently located.
