Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born and raised in Atlanta, but have lived most of my adulthood in Charlotte, North Carolina. Coincidentally I ended up right where my roots are on my father's side of the family. Genealogy is my passion and I never met a cemetery I didn't like. I'm also into historic preservation, both of buildings and the lives of people no longer with us.

As the daughter of a general and great-granddaughter of 3 Confederate veterans, I like to note military records of veterans on their findagrave memorials.

I welcome corrections/additions, but will no longer link to a "burial unknown" person. I have found this leads to duplicates.

FAMILIES ON MY FATHER'S SIDE: Irwin, DeWeese, Blackwelder, Babcock, Taylor, Wilbon.

FAMILIES ON MY MOTHER'S SIDE: Bryan, Battle, Pope, Atkinson, Yarbrough, Chappell.

Grave memorial for Carroll Short
Thank you so very much for noticing the blocked headstone photo, have that repaired. Just curious what brought you to that memorial, do you have any Short family in your line, or a Texas connection?

hunter family
am researching the hunter family in sc.

they lived in the old store area around pageland sc.they moved to the timrod section of bethune sc

we have heard that thomas henry hunter had a brother that stayed in the marshville nc area and one that went to greenville sc

thomas henry married sallie snipes

thomas henry had a daughter,katherine, that left bethune and went to greenville sc after her husband and parents died

have no names of brothers--just that the oldest living relative remembered this story when he was young

thanks so much and have a great day
