Josie Harley Harden memorial at Siloam

I have a memorial for my grandmother up already. Her first name was not Josephine. Would you turn over management of her memorial on findagrave to me? I'll consolidate the two.

Kindest regards,
--Milton Harden

Hooper-Martin and Hooper-Stewart (aka Stewart) cemeteries
Hi Lauren!

I was assisting my brother and his wife (she, Vonda Randall Brown) is descended from several families in this Graham county area). I made some entries into the pre-existing the Stewart cemetery and came to notice that the also pre-existing Hooper-Martin cemetery seems to be one and the same? Vonda checked with some local kin and they stated it was one and the same...



So, I wanted to mention this to you and see how you wanted to proceed... perhaps they should be merged? I can delete or transfer anything I added over to you, as you related. Please let me know your thoughts. all the best, -Hal

RE: How are you doing?
Thanks for asking. I live in NC and there's been no flooding around here lately. However, I have been following the news from Louisiana and it looks like the area where my ancestors lived got flooded once again, for the second time in less than a year.

RE: John and Rachel Holly
I'm sorry but I do not have the parents in my tree. When I look at other public trees I get conflicting information. Sorry I'm no help, but I wish you luck in finding out more information.

Humphrey Asa Peirce
Hi, Lauren,

HAP was my gggrandfather (John Ticknor Peirce, Richard M. Peirce, Malcom Travis Peirce). I have added a photo of his headstone to your post. My research reveals that some of his sons changed the spelling of their name to Pierce, though my line retained the original spelling.

Find A Grave Memorial# 45550190
Dear Ms. Holly,
I was just looking over the memorial you set up for my ancestor Cornelia G. McKenzie Holly.
Thank you for doing that for me and all of her descendents. I actually visited her grave recently. You may have noticed that I added a picture of the grave to the memorial. Also, on reviewing the information on the epitaph, I have come to believe the birth year listed on her Find A Grave Memorial is incorrect. According to her grave, she died Feb. 8, 1876 at the age of 77 years 6 months. IF that age on her gravestone is accurate, then she would have been born around Aug. 1798, or perhaps in the first days of Sept. 1798. If you concur with my math, could you please update the memorial.
Likewise, if you have any information that shows her epitaph is inaccurate and that she was indeed born in 1800, I would be grateful to know of it.

Once again, thank you for the time you took to memorialize our ancestor.

Siloam Methodist Church Photos
Regarding the photos taken at Siloam Methodist Methodist Church near Barnwell, Sc...those photos were taken approximately 20 years ago by my father who was visiting the area. I do not have any information about the whereabouts of the graves of relatives of those buried at Siloam. Sorry...

John & Cornelia Holly
I want to thank you for taking the time to put John & Cornelia Holly's graves on I am descended from John & Cornelia Holly via their daughter Emily, who married Octavius Owens, and then thru the Owens' granddaughter, Cassie Owens.
I am curious if, from your searching local graveyards, if you have come upon the grave of the Holly's daughter Emily, and her husband, Octavius Owens. I understand that they both died in Barnwell Co., so I presume they were likely buried close by.
Once again I want to thank you for your efforts. I am grateful.
