Bio and Links
Bio Photo The fourth daughter of Laurie Thackston Davis & Betty Miranda Robinson Davis. I was born and raised in Orangeburg, Orangeburg County, SC along with my three sisters. Maternal grandparents were Shellie Johnson Robinson, Sr. & Grace Edith Golson Robinson of Murph Mill Road, St. Matthews, Calhoun County, SC. Paternal Grandparents were Luther Edgar Davis & Margaret Elnora Rowell Davis of Norway, Orangeburg County, SC. Please visit our precious little grandbaby, Jordan, that the Lord saw fit to remain in heaven with Him and the angels. Jordan Hannah Perez

Married to Craig Hannah, mother of Miranda Hannah, stepmother of Alisha, Daniel (Bubba), Mark and David Hannah. Bubba, Mark and David were U. S. Marines and all proudly served this great nation of ours. On January 24, 2014, Alisha made me a grandmother with the arrival of Gabriel (G. J.) Perez, Jr. What a joyous occasion! In January 2015, Craig and I traveled to El Paso for G. J.'s first birthday. He's getting so big and absolutely the handsomest little boy around. I'm so glad God saw fit to let me stay on this Earth a little while longer to enjoy my grandson.

Colorectal Cancer Survivor here! In January 2011 my family's world was turned upside down by the news that I had colorectal cancer. My father died from colon cancer in 1992. He had been diagnosed at 58 so my sisters and I were aware that we would need to start colonoscopies at the age of 48. Ten years from your direct line ancestor is the norm. (My daughter will need to start colonoscopies at 35.) I was 45 when I was diagnosed due to symptoms that I noticed. I had the operation to remove the rectal cancer plus a little over a foot of my colon on March 1st and I started chemotherapy on April 13th. My chemotherapy ended on October 7, 2011 after only two small setbacks. Even though my father had chemo with his cancer, you don't realize Exactly what a person goes through Daily with all the changes to your body that chemo does. God Bless my Daddy! The further along in your chemo regime, the more the chemo attacks other body functions and muscles. As my husband put it, chemo really is just fumigating for any cancer bugs that may be roaming around in your body. At least in my case that was what was happening. Fortunately, I am blessed with an outstanding husband, children and family (my sister, Beth was there every day encouraging me and worrying about me) that were with me helping me complete my chemo journey. Now, over 4 years later, I still deal with day to day issues; however, I am here and I'm getting on with life despite my 2011 journey. In 2015, I'm finally at a point that I feel pretty good which is a blessing in itself. My last scan was May 22, 2015 and they are now going to let me go 8 months before another scan. Small steps, but good steps in the correct direction! Please, please, get those colonoscopies when they are due at 50. They really aren't as bad as they used to be and you don't want to have to deal with the alternative....take it from someone who has been there!

God Bless Each And Every One Of You! ~Laurie~

Just wanted to say hello!
Dear Laurie,
So very sorry to hear about your bout with colon cancer........We just never know.....I am doing fairly well. Do suffer with bad knees, need a replacement but trying to get along without it. Dr told me 50% were great, and the other 50% had heck with them.....Said he recommended I keep taking shots, when they failed go to a stronger one, and by that time I should be deceased........LOL.....He is a mess and I feel so comfortable with him...........LOL

Really hated it when I realized the family pages had been removed......Had not been into it in a long time and did not realize what was fixing to happen.........Were you able to salvage yours? I lost all of mine............If you ever hear anything about retrieving any of it, please let me know.....Well Christmas is almost upon us again. Hard to believe........Great about your grandson, they are a joy.......I know you do enjoy him.........I had a gr. granddaughter born in 2006, 6 months before Bill died. A gr. grandson in 2007 and his sister in 2012. She is a little pistol.......Well again so glad things turned out well for you.....Love to hear from you sometime........Hugs, Myrtice Forsythe

Orangeburg, SC
I have family there and my grandmother lived there 15 years before she passed away so I have visited there several times and it is very nice and when I was there it was slow paced and I really enjoyed it. Do you know anyone with the last name's Mitchell or Tucker. Although my aunt and uncle have passed my cousins and there children all live there are in towns near by like Cordova.

I hadn't seen anyone from Orangeburg before besides my family that live there. My Aunt Virginia Rummel just passed away in February and she is on Find A Grave and then her husband, Eddie was my mom's brother and he passed away several years ago so I had created a memorial for him back when he passed away.

Were you born there?

Hi Laurie, Are you confident that Mamie's birthday was in 1875 (7/29)? It seems a little odd because her husband (my 3rd great uncle) was 15 (1860) when she was born in 1875. I had her birth year around 1864 from my records. I know this union was possible because he would have been 35 yrs old when she was 20. Just thought I would get a confirmation from you. Thanks.

Hi, Did you see I posted a few photo's from West Bethel Cemetery. I see you don't have her death year, I can check next Sunday. Her grave looks real pretty with nice fake flowers the church must put there.

Thank you for the obituary. I had a copy of it. Still trying to find time to post everything I have in my collections.
