Just wanted to say hello!
Dear Laurie,
So very sorry to hear about your bout with colon cancer........We just never know.....I am doing fairly well. Do suffer with bad knees, need a replacement but trying to get along without it. Dr told me 50% were great, and the other 50% had heck with them.....Said he recommended I keep taking shots, when they failed go to a stronger one, and by that time I should be deceased........LOL.....He is a mess and I feel so comfortable with him...........LOL

Really hated it when I realized the family pages had been removed......Had not been into it in a long time and did not realize what was fixing to happen.........Were you able to salvage yours? I lost all of mine............If you ever hear anything about retrieving any of it, please let me know.....Well Christmas is almost upon us again. Hard to believe........Great about your grandson, they are a joy.......I know you do enjoy him.........I had a gr. granddaughter born in 2006, 6 months before Bill died. A gr. grandson in 2007 and his sister in 2012. She is a little pistol.......Well again so glad things turned out well for you.....Love to hear from you sometime........Hugs, Myrtice Forsythe

Orangeburg, SC
I have family there and my grandmother lived there 15 years before she passed away so I have visited there several times and it is very nice and when I was there it was slow paced and I really enjoyed it. Do you know anyone with the last name's Mitchell or Tucker. Although my aunt and uncle have passed my cousins and there children all live there are in towns near by like Cordova.

I hadn't seen anyone from Orangeburg before besides my family that live there. My Aunt Virginia Rummel just passed away in February and she is on Find A Grave and then her husband, Eddie was my mom's brother and he passed away several years ago so I had created a memorial for him back when he passed away.

Were you born there?

Hi Laurie, Are you confident that Mamie's birthday was in 1875 (7/29)? It seems a little odd because her husband (my 3rd great uncle) was 15 (1860) when she was born in 1875. I had her birth year around 1864 from my records. I know this union was possible because he would have been 35 yrs old when she was 20. Just thought I would get a confirmation from you. Thanks.

Hi, Did you see I posted a few photo's from West Bethel Cemetery. I see you don't have her death year, I can check next Sunday. Her grave looks real pretty with nice fake flowers the church must put there.

Thank you for the obituary. I had a copy of it. Still trying to find time to post everything I have in my collections.

RE: #12214342 Broadus Augustus Smith, III
I wrote a history of our little town here, and it was published in 1998. It's dedicated to Auntie, and I described her in the dedication. I still have a few for sale. Not sure you would be interested, but it does have information on her parents and siblings who wound up living here in the upstate. Since it's long out of print, I ask $25. It's hardback with 130 photos.

RE: #12214342 Broadus Augustus Smith, III
Thanks, Laurie. I'll check into that. I was reared in the home of Edna Inabinet Smith; my parents boarded there until I was five years old, and she was like my grandmother (although no blood kin). I wish you could have known her---she was the sweetest and dearest person. How are you related to "Auntie"? (That's what I called her because her nieces and nephews called her that.)

Thank you so very much for transferring my aunts memorial to me. My Aunt Virginia was such a sweet and loving woman and she had three children when my uncle met her and one of his requirements for dating a woman was she had to have children and I think that is because his own father left his kids and they were raised without a father in the home. I did not know until I was almost 20 that the oldest three were not my uncles biological children because they were ALL treated the same. I was shocked! It didn't change my feelings for my cousin as I loved them as much as I did the daughter they had together who was closer to my age. My aunt welcomed many into her home and when you were there you were a part of her family and she fed you and would talk for hours and she was amazing when it came to sewing and arts and crafts. I just truly admired her. I never seen her in a bad mood; she always had a smile on her face.

Thanks again!

RE: Charleston Shooting Victims
LOL ... My pleasure! I know the feeling...when Anna Ritcher taught me how to do those links...she created a monster here!

I have contacted the other people who created memorials for the nine victims. It would be nice if the links were on all memorials...yes?

They are forever linked in this tragic event anyway...I know you understand.

William Senn and many more
I don't know if I ever thanked you but I would like to now for transferring many memorials to us :)

Hi Laurie, good to hear from you. Strange, was thinking of you the other day....Doing pretty good. Hope that you and your family are also. Yes I am ready for all of this rain to stop. Cannot get anything done outside, that is for sure.

Sure hated that our sites were removed. I had not paid for mine in the last couple of years, mainly because I had them always just take it out every year for years automatically on my credit card. It got by me without knowing they had quit doing it. It had got to where I really had no response on it so I therefore was lax with keeping up with it........So I missed out on keeping my info. Hope you were able to keep yours.....Do you by chance know if there is any way now to retrieve it. At the time I really worked hard on it and had lots that I sure hated to lose. The years are sure getting by quick now. Bill will be gone 9 years this July. I am now 77. Hard for me to believe. Was 68 when he passed. Still live in my home. Do have a lot of kin right around me...Sound like I am griping but really feel very blessed. Again great to hear from you and do write again sometime and let me know what is going on......Hugs Myrtice
