Thank you Judy, but I'm not done yet. Who are the County Officials that are supposedly in charge of the cemeteries?
I didn't know Charlene Dowdy was the Register of Deeds for Currituck Co. She certainly went on the defensive. I sent her another e-mail telling her it wasn't a personal attack against her or the County.
I'm sure a lot of graves, plots, cemeteries have been overlooked. That's not pointing a finger at anyone. Some people that look at headstones or the like, are not as detail oriented as others. Some are satisfied with what is in front of their eyes, others need to make sure there's not more. Everybody misses things at times, it's not a put down, it's a fact.
The impression I got from Debbie after re reading her e-mail, is that when she says 'grave' it means private. But that's certainly a question I will ask.
I wish other people, especially in your own County, would have more or at least some passion and respect for their Ancestors, and history. From what I have read in other Counties, it's the same there as it is in Currituck. There were a couple of exceptions, which I can't remember off the top of my head. That's true of what I read in Princess Anne Co., VA. too, and in Sacramento Co., CA. So, I have to think this is pretty much the norm. That NEEDS to be turned around in every Co., and State. I've never started a 'grass roots' movement or petition before, so I don't know where to begin. I'll have to see what else I can find.
I'm sorry nobody else is helping you and Ben, I personaly don't get it.
It feels almost homey to see the same surnames now, in the same County, as when I'm researching the 17th and 18th century.
By the way, I still think Currituck Co. web site is the best web site there is.
