ABANDONED CEMETERY ON BALFOUR RD
October 07, 2007
There is a hugh cemetery neglected on Balfour Rd about 2 miles from me, I once went there to try
and get some names and dates, *(the only reason I knew it was there as a cuz told me about it back in
1960's but she said a few graves,)and as I walked up past the trees I looked ahead and tombstones
strected beyone my vision. It is hidden by the brush and trees, and I notified the county, maybe some
boy scout thing will clear it up as it is full of early hoke co residents.
I did see info on some of the stones about ww 1 and ww 2. I did not recognize the names. I mean it is
acres and acres and acres of tombstones. It doesn't even have a name. I would go and get a little at
a time, but can't get anyone to go with me, and it is dangerous by myself. That sec. is not safe
anymore by oneself. Help anyone? Dixie Simmons

ANTIOCH PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH HISTORY
August 30, 2007
I contacted the Presbyterian Church Archives and they said that all historical documents were returned
to Antioch Presbyterian Church. I wrote to the listed contact, but received no reply. Do you have any way
of finding out who is handling the records for this church? I did call several times but there was no answer
and no recording machine. If you know of a member of the church, I could contact them to seek the information.
Since my ancestor was a founder and ruling elder of that church, I am hoping there will be some record of him
and a possible hint of his place of origin. His name was James A. Smith, Sr., died 1845 and buried in the church
cemetery. There is a mention of a brief history of the church that was in circulation. I am also seeking a copy
of that as well. Thank you, Marilou Ninowsky

McDUFFIE / CAMPBELL / RAY / FINLAYSON
May 17, 2007
I am in the process of going through my father's history on our family that lived on what is now
the "Reservation". The family names are McDUFFIE, Campbell, Ray and Finlayson. I came across a letter
my father had written a while back requesting some information. My G-Grandfather, Daniel Murdoch McDuffie
died in Florida but was returned by train in 1923 and buried at the Raeford Cemetery. He was wondering
if there was a copy of an obituary detailing this. Also, he requested an article that may have appeared
in the News-Journal concerning a reunion held on the third Sunday in September 1924 at Sandy Grove Church.
At the time of his letter there wasn't the technology we have today and I was wondering if you could steer
me in the direction of a link or two that might help me find this information. I would be most grateful.

Hi, Thank you for this site. My curiosity is, I think my Grandmother might have been at McCains.
Her Name was Mary Catherine Matthews MOLDEN (MOULDEN). If she died while there, how would I find out
about her death. She died between 1931 -1934. I heard that she had T.B. and wondered also if McCains
was the only sanatorium in N.C. at that time. Thank you for any help you can supply.
Sincerely, Reba Bowden
