Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am an 8th generation Durr from South Carolina. My family roots grow very deep into the soil of the counties of Orangeburg, Dorchester, Colleton, Berkeley and Barnwell.

I've researched and traveled across the Lowcountry part of the state to where my ancestors settled, to dig into musty courthouse bins, rooted through libraries, and traipse cemeteries.

Even after many years of research, I am awed when I look at the old family tombstones, bible, land plats, Last Will and Testaments and keepsake pictures with so many lineages and thinking of the forklore of many generations past touches my heart.

I currently reside in Blythewood, SC. If I have made any errors, please feel free to contact me.

Some of the families I research are; Durr, Ruple, Bell, Salisbury, Murray, Weathers, Whetsell, Miller, Ayers, Way, Beach, Bozard, Keitt, Strock, Dukes and Johnson.

Thank you so much, Herman, for transferring Lewis E. Leavell to me. What a nice surprise! I'll try to be a good manager.

I just noticed and realized that you currently manage a great majority of my Ancestors.

ALL of the Rosborough's buried in Aimwell Cemetery and the one buried in New Hope Associate are all my Ancestors that I've researched and found. I'm now in the process of having all the memorials transferred to me so that I may manage them.

What would be the easiest way to do this, seeing that there are quite a few? I obviously want this to be at your convenience and timetable. I am in no rush.

I greatly appreciate your time!

Herman, thank you for transferring the memorial of my 3rd great-grandfather, William McKell, who is buried at Old Brick A.R.P. Churchyard Cemetery in Fairfield County, South Carolina to my care.

Your incredible work here at Find-a-Grave is invaluable to individuals like me doing family research. ~ with appreciation, George Gaston
