I am trying to find the grave site of Ransom Duncan, my wife's great-great grandfather. He lived in Clayton in the 1800s. He served in the 50th Regiment N.C. Troops during the War Between The States. He died in the early 1900s, probably in the Clayton area.He was married to Lucinda Boon, who died before he did. I know he is buried somewhere in Johnston county. Any information will be very much appreciated.

Apparently, you're not the first to look for his grave site (http://archiver.rootsweb.ancestry.com/th/read/NCJOHNST/1998-...).

Neither Ransom Haywood Duncan nor his wife, Lucinda Boon, are in the Johnston County register of cemeteries which were collected during the 1960's - 1980's. It is possible that they were buried in Wake County rather than Johnston County or that their markers were illegible or destroyed.

You should probably take a look at the cemeteries below. They appear to have siblings of Lucinda in them as well as some Duncan decendents.

I am looking for the grave of a Hardy Bird, Rev. War soldier who lived and died in Johnston County, but cannot find any reference to him. Anyone have anything, he married Jerusha Dupree.

Based on what my wife's grandmother told her, the grave is in Johnston county. She visited the site shortly after her marriage and she became part of the family. She could not remember the exact location though and she has since passed away. Ransom was not well off financially at the time of his death and the chances of his being buried in Wake county seem to be slim on that account.He tried to get into the Confederate soldiers' home in Raleigh but died before he was admitted and is not in Oakwood.
