Bio and Links
Bio Photo Just a country girl from South Carolina.
I grew up all around the Columbia area. But I have been away for 25 + yrs. Wow! Can't believe it's been that long.

I've got family all around South Carolina (Lexington, Irmo, Chapin,and Newberry areas, as well as around the Sumter, Florence, and Bennettsville areas). Also family in California and Oregon. Family surnames-Bickley, McCartha,Comalander,Jackson,Garrett,White.

With all the older folks gone it's really hard trying to find family you never knew.
Most of my findings have been family members or friends of the family.

I'm sure there are a few who will understand this and some who will not!
I'm a free spirit, I enjoy nature and it's beauty and the freedom I have while walking with the angels who have past on visiting their graves.

As a child, I loved walking around old grave yards. Wondering if they could speak--what would they tell me.
I found out what they are saying--"WRITE ABOUT ME!"

Everyone has their hobbies, mine are simple I love to reach beyond into the unknown. Life and death -- what a beautiful mystery.

Please feel free to add pictures to any of my memorials, As a rule, I don't mind transferring memorials to others, however those who are direct family members of mine I prefer to keep under my management. I hope you understand. Peace and Love--Leigh

RE: 112372715 for Ella Ruth Andrews Jackson
Thanks for the "heads up" on the date. I placed the memorial before the tombstone photos were taken. Glad to have updated information. Mary

William Franklin White

Thanks for posting the obit on William Franklin White. He was my G Grandfather. My Grandfather was his son, James Franklin White.

Since the obit you posted gave his parents names I will add a little more history on his side of the family.

His father, as stated, was James Grier White and his mother was Frances Cornelia Munnerlyn White.

His grandfather was Joseph Barton White Jr and his grandmother was Jane Dent White. Both are buried in the family graveyard on the Manning Highway in Sumter County, SC. The graveyard was almost totally destroyed by hurricane Hugo in 1989.

Joseph Barton White Jr's parents were Joseph Barton White Sr. and Judith Grier White and they are buried in the White Cemetery on Highway 521 at Beckwood Road in Sumter SC. Judith was the first recorded death in the cemetery having passed away in 1813. Joseph Sr passed away in 1852. Although the cemetery is overgrown both stones as well as several others are clearly visible.

Anyone wanting any additional information on these lines is welcome to contact me at

Hi, Leigh. I have transferred her as you requested. I've been out of town, or I would have transferred sooner. Thanks.

It's much easier if you do it from their page. I have limited time, so I'd appreciate it. Thanks.

Broome / Poer
Hi Leigh, I see you have left virtual flowers for Flora Jane Broome Poer.
May I ask if you are related?
I am researching the Poer family and would love to hear from you if possible!
Have a blessed day.

Munnerlyn Family Line
Found this on another blog and thought it might be useful for the Munnerlyn family line.

Francine, Jean, Dorothy and the rest of the list, I joined the list last week but have been too slack to respond. So, here's a brief history of my Munnerlyn connection. I descend from John Munnerlyn and Sarah Keene's son,

James Munnerlyn (b. ca. 1793 - d. 17 Sept. 1821 in Georgetown). James married Elizabeth Ann Grier (b. 23 Sept. 1797 - d. 3 Oct. 1827).

James and his brother Charles Lewis left Marion district shortly after the death of their parents in 1822 and bought plantations on South Island in Georgetown Co. They were members of Wayne Methodist Church in the city of Georgetown.

James and Elizabeth Ann had 2 children - a son named Samuel G. Munnerlyn (b. unk - died Oct 1845) who married Martha G. Hamlin (1821 - 1901) and had issue: Sarah A. Munnerlyn (mar. Richard T. Bryan) and

Frances Cornelia Munnerlyn (mar. James Grier White).

The other child of James and Elizabeth Ann Munnerlyn was my great-great grandmother, Sarah Martha Jane Munnerlyn (10 Feb. 1822 - 17 Apr. 1883) who married Rev. Lemuel Asbury Grier (1816-1877). They resided in Yauhannah (where I live) in upper Georgetown Co. on the Pedee River (just below the confluence of the Great and Little Pedee's which forms Marion Co.). Lemuel A. Grier and Sarah Martha Jane had a passle of kids that I'll name in the event someone sees a name that might be familiar (one note - the Griers used every known family name w/ the exception of an occasional Methodist minister) - the children were: Mary Elizabeth, Margaret Skinner, Samuel Edward Osgood, Sarah Frances, Henrietta Ann Shuford (my great -grandmo!
ther), Asbury Coke Cornelius, Benjamin Marion, Martha Cornelia, Robert Collins, James Elmon and Judith Marion Grier.
In re: James Munnerlyn (son of Capt. John) - I have never seen his name listed as James Keene Munnerlyn (although it may be) and have often thought that it might be James Elmon because his daughter named a son James Elmon Grier.
For Jean - in re: Richard Garrell Williams - somewhere in my Williams file I may have some information on Richard Garrell Williams and will try to look it up for you. I do know that Richard G. Williams was the son of William Williams (wife unk.) who died at Potato Bed Ferry in Marion in 1801. Potato Bed ferry is on the Little Pedee not far below Robert Fladger's 1734 grant. There was a James Garrell who lived across the Little Pedee from the Fladger grant (present day Horry Co.). I don't know much about the Garrells but Cyrene might come from this James. I've rambled enough for now. Thanks Francine for going the extra mile. I know you're going to put this interesting old family in place.
