I live in Rock Hill, SC but my relatives are from several counties in North and South Carolina. The main counties are Chester, Laurens, Greenville, and Spartanburg, SC as well as Caswell, Catawba, Randolph, Guilford, and Mecklenburg, NC.
I am trying to get every grave at Brushy Fork Baptist Church and Calvary Baptist Church cemeteries in Chester, SC added to Find a Grave.
RE: William M. Yandell, Jr. My husband was a Yandle, descendant of Charles Lester Yandle of Union County, NC and Charles' wife Mary Magdalene nee Tartt. I have researched the Yandle / Yandell, etc family for many years. It seems all Yandles, with any spelling, are kin if the family was in America by the early 1800's. With all the research that I have done, I still have not been able to go over the ocean to the country of origin. It is believed the family was of Welsh origin. I think some of the problem with finding records could be because of a spelling variation of the surname that may been "strange" to us if it was Welsh. I did my husband's DNA for "place of origin" before he died in Jan 2013. The results for his DNA through Ancestry.com was 98% British Isles. No surprise there. But it gives me a good feeling to know I'm going in the right direction for his origin. Suzzette
Yes, He is my maternal grandfather's uncle. The only photograph that I have of him is one that was taken with the whole family. It' s not a close up shot of him nor is it very clear but I do plan to post it at a later time when I can do some editing and try to identify as many family members as possible. I will ask some of my relatives if they have any photos of him and if so, I will certainly post them. The memorial project sounds very interesting and I would like to know more about it if you would like to share any info. The photos that you posted of him are wonderful and thank you for your contributions to his memorial.
RE: Ora Warmouth / Warmoth I do not know for sure because I did not know her. Her husband James Randolph is buried in Laurelwood Cemetery in Rock Hill and his Grave spelling is Warmoth. Her daughter Lillian Spelled it Warmoth. She married Robert Clayton Casebolt. Lillian is also buried at Calvary. The Find a Grave record does not show a photo, but it has Lillian Warmouth listed as her name.
I know for a fact that the correct spelling is Warmoth because my Mother's maiden name is Warmoth. She and James Randolph are ist cousins.
RE: William M. Yandell, Jr. Glad I could help. More research needs to be done to confirm Myers as the middle name. Since I have been doing a good deal of newspaper research lately, I have found the newspaper write-ups have lots of errors in them.
My husband, now deceased, belonged to the Sherrod/Sherred Yandle line in Union County, NC.
