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

McLEOD / McKINNON    September 25, 2007
I am looking for Angus McLeod and his wife Mary McKinnon who settled the land very close to old 
Sandy Grove Presbyterian Church in what is now Ft. Bragg - Hoke County. I descend from their son 
Lauchlin - my great-great grandfather. Thanks for your assistance, Dan MacLeod

I contacted the Presbyterian Church Archives and they said that all historical documents were returned 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

MCNEILL    June 03, 2007
I am interested in the connection to Godfrey and Kittie MCNEILL as given in query 200l by Donna Van Horn. 
I am a descendent of Godfrey and Kittie MCNEILL. Pauline Grimes

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.

MOLDEN / MOULDEN    March 24, 2007
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
