Bio and Links
Bio Photo My name is Tonya Sapp Hames. I was born & raised in Laurens, SC & lived there for 25 years. I now live in Ladson, SC, with my husband, Stephen, and son, Christian.

I stumbled upon FAG by accident when I Googled my father, Robert E. Sapp, who passed away in 1991 & his name came up on this website. I have always been fascinated by genealogy. I have mostly been researching the following family names: Sapp, Nelson, Moore, Helms, Ball, Story, Belk, Kell, Woody, Fuller, Campbell, Richards, Myers, & Taylor; along with Hames, Crowder, Gregory, Kirkley, & West. However, along the way I have been doing other genealogy work as well. I am a FAG County Keeper emeritus for Dorchester Co., SC.

If you have any information that may help me with my research, please feel free to contact me. Also, when reviewing any of my work, if you see that I have made any error, no matter how large or small, please do not hesitate to contact me & let me know. I will ask, that when contacting me, you please do so in a respectful manner & allow for the corrections to be made. As FAG is NOT my full-time job, I do NOT work on my FAG information everyday, therefore, quick fix items will be taken care of in a more timely manner than other items which may take more research to complete.

Here are some VERY helpful links while utilizing

Susan-HCBAR Historic Cemetery Preservation-SRP
RE: Thank you
It's what the Historic Cemetery Preservation Project is all about. Some stones were difficult to decipher.
I am very concerned about so many entries being omitted from the Historical Society's list.

Fulton Brown
Just wondering if you have anything additional on Fulton Brown. I have discovered that he is my
GGG-Grandfather. I am trying to research his father and grandfather to establish a link to the revolutionary war for myself.

I can transfer back to you when done. Spent about 4 hours there today. It was a challenge. But fun.

Lewisfield plantation cemetery
Hi Tonya. Could you please turn all of these to me. I visited Mrs Rembert Dennis today and went to the cemetery. It's in bad shape in the woods on the cooper river. I have pics and bios. It would be easier for me to add them since there are so many and writings. Thank you for your consideration. Mary
