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.

RE: Earthie L. Courtney - Gunter Cemetery
Sure will.
Not that there will be any additional pictures for these infants and it also places a "grave" picture with a more accurate % of markers taken in that cemetery (basic reasoning).
You're welcome.

Duplicate Wosmansky
Your memorials were first so I asked the person with duplicates to delete... here's what I sent them.

Could you remove duplicate memorials? I've already asked the photographer to relocate his photos:

Tonya, it was my pleasure to sponsor her site. I was so moved by her beautiful memorial representation of the girl with her dog. I sent an email to you also. David

I was reseaching my family's history (Turner - maiden name) and see that you added Thelma's death date with flowers. Do you have other information about her? She is my 1st cousin - once removed, and I would love to find out if you have details that I do not. Please let me know. Thank you so much in advance, and God bless you.

You stated "I am a Find A Grave County Keeper emeritus".
How did you become a county keeper emeritus. I see that some of the profiles and don't understand how you do this.

Hi Tonya, This grave site is that of my Mother; I had also created a site for her, and I am wondering whether you would mine deleting the one you created; Because she is my Mother I waned to have total control of monitoring her site.

This is the number for the site I created back in August(2013)115165297--Her burial site is located the Mt Vernon Missionary Baptist Church, Nichol County.
