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

Memorial #21753621
I added a photo to the subject memorial; however, a duplicate memorial exists for this person, i.e., memorial #48224521. You may want to eliminate one of the two.

There are 4 more Johnsons in plot 9-22. Do you want to list and manage these or should I?

RE: Tillinghast
I have corrected the photos. Please view to confirm. I have found that many of the photos that I added using my iPad are displayed sideways - when viewed on a PC. I'm trying to find them all and correct. The new FindAGrave app corrects iPad photos.
