† 
During my visit to Reidsville, North Carolina in 1987, my Aunt Billie took me to all of the cemeteries where we have relatives buried. It was an honor to be able to copy the information contained on the headstones of our ancestors. The following pages contain the names of the cemeteries I visited and the names of the people buried there who are ancestors to the Borlandís and both Talley Families. If anyone has further information to add, please feel free to do so.
