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.

You requested a transfer of this memorial, but neglected to include your relationship. If she is outside the Find A Grave 4x guidelines, I'm happy to add links or bio information. Thanks, LG

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).

Transfes of New Memorials Made
Hi! Have transferred:
- Casey "Cassey" Pitman Andrews
- William P Andrews (sent you an "Edit" message on changes that need to be made)
- Joseph Jesse "Joe" Andrews

Here is a data base that I use to find about 90% of all the data I need. Suggest you use it searching for both names: ANDREWS & ANDERS
Some of the data I've already found was originally under ANDERS.

You can "bookmark" that URL as a FAVORITE on your web browser, so you can go there in the future for most of your research. There is no cost to use this data base, and it is successful at least 80% of the time!

I have finished what I was planning to do, so all these new Andrews family members are now yours. Happy researching.

Working on GG's Memorial & Links
Hi! I did some research today, and merged the data I found with Lorraine Lamberts. Was able to put in memorials for:

Casey "Cassey" Pitman Anders, Find A Grave Memorial# 124758469
William P Anders, Find A Grave Memorial# 124758499
Have put them in Tuxedo Cemetery, per the message Lorraine Lambert sent. We can change that to Holly Springs if we ever find out which one in SC. There are 4 of them.

You already had memorials for:
Rhoda Jane Anders Wise, Find A Grave Memorial# 68658377
(you need to link her to her parents) <-----
Wesley Green Wise, Find A Grave Memorial# 122762476

Poppy (another Contributor) had one for:
Irene Morrow Wise Lewis, Wesley Green Wise's wife.
(You need to write Poppy a note <-----
asking that she transfer her to you, as a relative).

I have several more tricks up my sleeve, and will be doing some more research in the next week. When I get all done, I will transfer anything I have put in for your family to you!

Will be back in touch!

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.

Hi! I am copying in a G-Mail E-mail from Lorraine. She wasn't able to find out a whole lot about your GG Mom, but found a myriad of info about other relatives.


Pitman - Ander-Andrews!!!!

to me
I don't think I said that like I wanted too!!

Wesley Green Wise and his wife Irene Morrow Wise are buried at Tuxedo Cemetery, Henderson County, North Carolina. He is the son of John Henry Wise and Rhoda Anders Wise. Rhoda is the daughter of William Anders and Cassy Pitman Anders.

William and Cassy Pitman Anders were Wesley Green Wise, grandparents.

I have found everyone, but the one they are looking for. If a friend buried her, there probably isn't a headstone.???

Cassy Pitman, daughter of John Joshua Pitman and Elizabeth Belue Pitman. I found a couple of brothers,

Brother, Joshua Pitman, he is buried at Fairview Bap. Cemetery in Landrum, Spartanburg Co. S. C.

Brother, Jacob Pitman, he is buried at Glassy Mountain Baptist Church Cemetery, Greenville County, S. C. # 9330758

Brother, Robert Pitman, buried at Beulah Baptist Church, Mill Springs, Polk County, N. C.
Robert has a son Riley P. Pitman, buried at Mill Spring Cemetery, Polk County, N. C.

Cassy Pitman Anders and husband William Anders, daughter Rhoda Anders and her husband John Henry Wise, son Wesley Green Wise is buried at Tuxedo Cemetery, Henderson County, N. C., along with his his wife Irene Morrow Wise.

Only thing I could find on Cassey (Pittman), This is how had it spelled.

Cassey Pittman born, 1847, Greenville County, S. C. in 1880 was living at Glassy Mountain, Greenville County, S. C., married William P. Andrews, born 1850.

Parents of 5 children:
1. Joe Jesse Andrews, b. 1872
2. Rhoda Jane Andres, b. 1874
3. W. F. Andres, b. 1876
4. Lovine H. Andres, b. 1879
5. Dovie Andrews, b. 4-3-1885, d. 5-27-1935, Laurens, S. C. married John Luther Rice.
All born Greenville County, S. C.

Found a lot, but not what you needed.
I went through every cemetery in Polk County. I would say if she is burid in South Carolina it would be in Spartanburg County, but that is just a guess.
Tell them I am sorry, no luck in finding their great-grandmother.
