I was born and raised in South Carolina, but moved to Europe in 2007 to marry the love of my life. We lived in Northern Germany until 2012, when we moved back to America to be closer to my family.. and were blessed with a daughter in February 2013. My life is full and very busy now. Being a mother is the journey of a lifetime, and one I never thought I'd get to take.. and it's been wonderful so far (even with the lack of sleep).
My grandmother got me interested in family history about 12 years ago, and graciously allowed me to be the keeper of her research.. she had been tracing our roots for over 30 years.
Now that she has passed on, I have become the Family Historian and the keeper of records. It is a life-long journey that continues to fascinate, amaze and sometimes puzzle me.. but the path has taught me the value of patience and perseverance - both valuable life lessons.
I have expanded the foundations of my grandmother's research over the years, and now have a large database that grows ever larger! If anyone is interested in my family branches, I will be happy to share and exchange information.
Research branches include (in A-Z order):
- North Carolina - Albright, Collins, Efland, Fowler, Grant, Gulledge, Haney, Harrell, Hasty, Helms, Rogers, Smith, Stegall, and Swanner.
- South Carolina - Cameron, Dean, Elliott, Grant, Gulledge, Hasty, Horton, Hough, Hunter, Kershaw, Nelson, Nettles, Peach, Peavy, Rogers, Roscoe, Smith, Steen, Truesdale/Truesdel, West, Williams and Young.
I may be missing a few, but will update them as I find others.

Roscoe Family Mrs. A. I. Carroll-Zimmer, my name is Ronnie Craig Roscoe and I was born in Cheraw, South -Carolina in Sept. 1955. I am retired police officer from the Cheraw Police Dept. and the Chesterfield County Sheriff’s Office. As I reach the age of 60 and time flying by, I find this emptiness of trying to trace my family roots to find out who and where my origin began. As I began this process, I came across your post on http://www.findagrave.com where you left a picture of flowers in loving remembrance to James Riley Roscoe and Anzilla Gulledge Roscoe who are my great grandparents. Their oldest son William E. Roscoe and his wife Jemima Rosenell (Brock) Roscoe are the parents of my dad Olin Boyd Roscoe dob 08/10-22 / dod 05/09/1992 (Cheraw) and my mother Shirley Roscoe who is still alive and living in Cheraw. As I noticed in the history listed on http://www.findagrave.com I saw where my great, great, grandparents are Oliver Roscoe and Caroline Steen however I have no known former addresses, DOB, DOD, nor any siblings. I do not know for sure, but I believe your connection to the Roscoe family tree, is either through my great grandfather, James Riley Roscoe (1856 - 1923) or my great grandmother Anzilla Gulledge Roscoe (1867 - 1952). However, I was hoping that you might have other important information that would help me as I continue my journey of tracking my family linage.
Fowlers Cemetery Hi, I recently came across your interments at Fowler's graveyard and all of the interments are already posted under Old's Fowler cemetery. Find A Grave has already merged the two cemeteries. I photographed the markers (with permission) and posted them in 2010. It is located on my parent's neighbor's property in the woods. It is called Old Fowler's, but you know how often these old cemeteries are called different names. I was wondering if Find A Grave can merge all of your information with the original memorials. You obviously worked very hard on them and it seems that there would be a way for them to do this without you losing all of that work.
Mt. Moriah Cemetery An open air meeting will be held at the site of the old Mount Moriah Church, inside Anderson County Park, at 11:00 on Sunday March 22nd. Nestled in a wooded area, overlooking the Clinch River channel of Norris Reservoir, the church site is situated at a high elevation just below the forks of the Clinch and Powell Rivers. Few graves remain in the cemetery that surrounds the site of the old church as most were moved by TVA when the Norris Lake was formed. Mt. Moriah, the first church in what is now Anderson County, was established in 1800 by Revolutionary War veteran Henry Ridenour. Over the years his descendants have multiplied and the Ridenour name continues to be common in the area. Unimaginable as it may seem to some today the modern community of Murrayville and the depopulated communities of Agee, Mount Moriah and Walnut Grove were fairly close to each other before the water rose behind the dam. An old fashion camp meeting style service is planned at the site consecrated in prayer by the pioneers and successive generations. Local historian Joe Stephens, a direct descendant of Revolutionary War Veteran Henry Ridenour will be presenting a historical program. Readers with roots in the vicinity of the forks, anyone interested in local history, and those who would like to participate an old fashion outdoor meeting are encouraged to attend. For more info contact Joe Stephens at JoeStephens10@hotmail.com
McLre-Quinlen-McMillan Cemetery Just wanted you to know that you duplicated this cemetery and all the memorials. The duplicates needs to be deleted. I have sent individual edit requests. The McLure's have been moved to another cemetery.

Edna Watson http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=119491245 You sent me a correction for Edna Watson. I have her maiden name as Byrd, but her parents are Carter. Do you know which is correct? Not sure where the Byrd came from. Thanks for your help. Vonna
