Our Interest in the Findagrave come as researchers of our Family History
To bring back to memory the history of a life that was lived,
My Surname -Paternal O'Shields-Hyatt-Mayes-Smith-Black-Maternal-Riddle-Rampley-Wilson
Doris family Surname -Wilson Lusk Corbin-Smith Beck, Maternal--Rice -Moore-Pitman-Andrews-Gosnell--Shipman--Merrill--Ashworth-
all of these listed are Grandparents.
We are working to connect families together on F.A.G To make it an easy process for anyone in search of their family history. My purpose is to help.
F,A,G is the most helpful tool I have come across in doing research. I personally think it is better than D,N,A when a family member knows who is related. It can reach from State to State.
So if anyone knows where a mistake has been made please let us know. In the future I will not add family pictures to the memorial because they are being picked up by websites that want to use them for profit.

RE: Simpson O'Shields
Good catch! Thank you very much! Yes, that was a typo: his death date was in 1903, not 1904. I have corrected it.

Young Cemetery - Union, SC
I have been trying to get management of several of my family cemeteries in Union County. I requested of Apomi several times to help out. There was never a response, can you folks help (I would like to add some info re. cemetery history, etc.)? Are y'all ameniable to passing along access to my family cemetery sites? Thanks, Phil Bailey (families-Humphries, Gregory, Young, Bailey, Betenbaugh, Holcombe, and many others in the area).

RE: Andrews & Pitman Family
Sorry for delay. I have been researching all sides of my family for years, at least 30 or so, way before the internet made so many things available.

George Riley Andrews Sr. was my Great Great Grandfather.
William Paul Andrews was my Great Grand Uncle.
Mary "Dovie" Andrews was my 1st cousin 2x removed.
Beatrice Rice was my 2nd cousin 1x removed.

George Riley Andrews Jr was my Great Grandfather,and brother of William P Andrews.

I have very little more than that as to information other than I believe that George Riley Sr's father was named Peter? And I have some questions about Julette Lindsay/Lindsey our Great Great Grandmother.

Cousin Cathy

Hi! Again! We have a good friend in Find A Grave who has a myriad of data bases that I don't have access to. I have written to Lorraine Lambert (#47307083), and if anybody can find additional info on your great grandmother, it is Lorraine. If she accepts our challenge, she will be in touch!

Cassey Pitman Andrews
Hi! I found her death certificate in and it appears her last name was ANDERS, not ANDREWS (for both she and her husband).

Here is the gist of the docuemtn:

North Carolina, Death Certificates, 1909-1975 about Edsey Anders <-----
Name: Edsey Anders
[Casey or Cassey Pittman Anders] <-----
[Casey or Cassey Pitman Anders] <-----
Gender: Female
Race: White
Age: 68
Birth Date: 29 Oct 1859
Birth Place: Greenville, South Carolina, United States
Death Date: 18 Mar 1928
Death Location: Green River, Henderson
Spouse's Name: William Anders
Father's Name: Joshey Pitman
Mother's Name: Elizabeth Belue
I did 100% photos of Holly Springs BC Cemetery in Henderson County (Little River/Penrose area).
The death certificate clearly shows she is in HOLLY SPRING, SC (not NC).

There are 4 cemeteries in SC named Holly Springs:

Holly Springs Baptist Church Cemetery
Anderson County
South Carolina
USA 4 260
Holly Springs Baptist Church Cemetery
Oconee County
South Carolina
USA 3 661
Holly Springs Baptist Church Cemetery
Spartanburg County
South Carolina
USA 3 1,575
Holly Springs Cemetery
Pickens County
South Carolina
USA 6 710

You need to determine which one might have been nearest to Tuxedo NC (or where her parents might have been buried).

Sorry I cannot be of any greater help.
