Hi: I checked my files and I have an Edward Franklin Grimes (b.1843 near Tar Heel, Bladen Co., NC; d. 7/12/1919 near Wallace, NC Military CSA, Co. B, 36th NC Arty.). He was a brother to my ggg grandfather James Calvin Grimes. Edward Franklin Grimes married a Julia E. Chunus (sp?) b.11/2/1847, d.8/16/1918. They had a daughter named June. This must be the same as your Julia. Where exactly are the Chinnis Cemeteries? My grandmother, who always referred to the Grimes Cemetary, grew up at the 'old Grimes place'. Whenever we went past it when I was little, she said that was where little Katharine was buried. Katharine was her 9 mo. daughter who died about 1923. This Grimes cemetery and the 'old Grimes place' was in Brunswick. I know the roadways have changed a lot since I was little, but I do remember that once we were out of Wilmington going into Brunswick, we turned right off of the road that goes on to Orton Plantation. Turning right took us on to Winnabow and Funston Road, but as soon as we turned right, she always pointed to the woods on the right and said that was where the old Grimes place was and cemetery back in those woods. My father said there were never any permanent markers, just wooden ones. Does any of that sound familiar?

Could you give me the Chinnis site address and I can send the picture? Thanks.
