I've been researching my family for many years and have found Findagrave to be invaluable. It is NOT a genealogy site though. It's main purpose is to document the location of graves. Being able to link family members and post bios is a bonus, but not a requirement for the memorials.Please use the edit button on the memorial to add information or correction information.Use the Edit button on the memorial and use the Suggest any other correction or addition link to request a transfer. Include your relationship to the person you are asking to be transferred and your member number. If requesting a transfer for someone outside the guidelines of 4 direct generations (up to great-grandparents), please include a reason for the transfer, other than "they're family".Please do not post a death certificate to a memorial that I manage. If there is information on the d/c that I have not listed, send a SAC and I'll add it. The death certificate does not add anything to the memorial that can't be put in the bio. If there is some question as to the burial of the person, I can add "death certificate states burial in XYZ cemetery" to the bio.Many of my memorials have been entered from transcripts and I have not seen the actual headstone. If you post a headstone photo to a memorial, and there is a difference in info, please send an edit and let me know. Thanks!
Rhonda McDonoald Hey Joni, I writing to request you to transfer her memorial to me. She was the best friend I ever had and when she got killed that day it killed a part of me. I would like to be able to do something for her since she is gone. No one could have ever asked or wanted a better friend. Thank you for your consideration and I'll understand your decision. Thanks Linda Glover
I wanted to let you know that I spoke too soon about the grave of JH Webb at Marks Creek Presbyterian Cemetery. I've been in touch with the cemetery caretakers, and they assure me that his and his wife's graves are there. Please forgive my mistake. I am going to visit Richmond County again later this spring, and will make arrangments to have the caretaker show me the graves. I'll take pictures and submit them to you for addition to their profiles.
You list JH Webb (Memorial# 126185503) as buried in Mark's Creek Presbyterian Church. I visited the Church Cemetery today. There are no Webb family members buried in this cemetery, and also no Sanford family either. (James wife was a Sanford.) I spoke with several current church members during the visit, and they confirmed that no Webb family was buried there. There is only one other church in a 5 mile radius, that being Boyd Lake Church of God; they don't have a cemetery at all. My interest in JH Webb relates to my father James Webb Diggs Sr. being named after him. That's because his mother Francis Alice Ussery Diggs was raised by JH after her mother died. I will be back in the area later in the spring, and would be happy to try to find JH Webb's grave. Any comments and suggestions as to where to look would be appreciated.
Yur Little line You have Isabel Medlin b 1829. Where was she born and her parents if you can share please. I have a little line and a Medlin line. Interesting you do too. I look forward to hearing from you. Thank you, Sue K
Finley McSween Just a quick question on the photos of Finley McSween's grave. I can read part of it, but do you happen to know what both sides of the gravestone say in full? There is a high probability that this is my 7th great-grandfather and I would like to know more.
RE: Owen Slaughte & Slaughter Cemetery Joni, that's fantastic. I have one fairly modern Slaughter in my tree, someone who married a Weeks. The Caney Creek cemetary they were buried in (long dissolved into the earth, I presume) is photographed thus: A lot of greenery, bushy, no landscape, with a wooden gate in it, wide enough to drive a horse and cart through. It's a reminder that "Ashes to ashes and dust to dust" ain't jus' a woofin'.
Henry T Taylor I know you may be posting info you have gotten from someone else but I am sure that some of the info on Henry T Taylor 1873-1945 is not correct. Those are not his parents or his siblings. Wife(Lula) and child (William) are correct. His father Robert Taylor was born late 1850's. His mother was Nancy Johnson also born late 1850's. The people listed are Robert and Nancy C (Dickard)Taylor per 1880 census Easley,(Pickens)SC. The 1880 census shows Robert's mother-in-law Sallie Dickard in same household. Henry's parent were in Adamsville, (Marlboro) SC in 1880. The date on Henry's grave marker is incorrect. The 1910 census matches the 1880 census of approx. 1879 as date of birth for Henry. His given name was John Henry Taylor. Henry T was just a nickname.I hope this make sense to you. Henry and Lula had 8 children. I do have that info because (William) was my dad. Thanks Darlene Taylor
