I can help you out a bit, but first I must offer a proviso concerning my source. "Forsyth County, N.C. Cemetery Records" is a five-volume abstract published in 1978 which attempts to record every burial in the county. The primary compiler, Donald W. Stanley, is the father-in-law of my uncle. According to my uncle, Stanley’s survey technique was to wander cemeteries with a tape recorder reading the markers for later transcription. From my experience, this method has its shortcomings which create some errors and omissions; the most ironic has to be the omission of a common ancestor of my uncle, his son/my first cousin, and me. (Refer to
http://genforum.genealogy.com/crews/messages/1211.html ) Even with its relatively few mistakes, "Cemetery Records" is an awesome achievement and is an extraordinary resource for genealogists. I personally have found it most useful. Of course, the subject does need updating.
Your ggg-grandmother, ggg-aunt, and her husband are buried in the Main Street United Methodist Church cemetery in Kernersville. The cemetery is not prohibitively large and is located a few blocks from the center of town. I have cousins buried there and have visited a time or two. I have business in K’ville about once a month, so I’ll try to double-check this info if and when I visit the cemetery again.
NOTE: In the following, W is wife, and H is husband. Also, I have repeated apparent typographical errors in my source.
Guilliann L. Fields (H:E.S.) 30 Dec 1807 - 29 Mar 1885
Fannie G. (Field) Griffith (H:L.E.) 13 Dec 1851 - 18 Dec 1919
Lewis Erwin Griffith (W:F.G.(F.)) 29 Dec 1852 - 17 Jan 1914
SOURCE: "Forsyth County, N.C. Cemetery Records, Volume II," "Kernersville Main Street Methodist," p. 281
Hope this has been helpful.
