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.

"Shrewsbury" is misspelled in Amelia's name therefor she does not appear on a "shrewsbury" search.

Would you please remove the picture of the car crash from my cousin's memorial.
His sister is very bothered by it and I can't remove it. Again, thanks for transferring him to me.

Toni Preston
I just fulfilled your request for Toni Preston's grave photo. FYI, he is not in the correct cemetery. He should be moved to the Mountville Presbyterian Church Cemetery in Laurens Co, SC. This is where we found his marker.

Greenwood Memorial in Greenwood
You have many requests for grave photos in this cemetery and I sent a note about calling the cemetery to get the location about 2 weeks ago and am wondering if you were going to follow through. The note came as a "problem" on each of your requests. I will be able to do your requests if you call on Monday and get the locations for each one. Thanks. Diane
