Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've been doing research for 30 years and have over 430,000 people in my database. I'm slowly trying to add what I have to Find-A-Grave. What a great resource! I've collected much information from here and hope I can return the favor.

I moved near Augusta, GA, in 2011 (after living near Camden, SC, for close to 30 years), have been married for 39 years (yes, to the same man), have two grown children and two absolutely perfect grandchildren. I still work full time and get out to "see dead people" whenever possible. My son tells me I need to get a life.

I work hard to get my information as accurate as possible and am thankful when other contributors do the same. I'm happy to make requested corrections or consider transfers, but please use the "Edit" tab on the memorial. It's easier to manage the emails that way, and it gives me a link to the memorial and your profile if I need to leave a message. If you request a transfer, please tell me the relationship to the person. Thanks!

If you're a visitor to Find A Grave without an account, please don't send a message without including a way to respond. If you don't have an account, then no email address is given in the message I get, nor is there a link to a profile where a public messages can be left, so I have no way to respond.

As far as pictures go, feel free to add what you like to any of my memorials, but remember that unsponsored memorials are limited to five pictures, so please make them worthwhile. And remember, don't post church/cemetery photos on memorials -- they belong on the main cemetery page.

transfer of several aunts and uncles to me
I notice that you have transferred several aunts and uncles to me. You failed to transfer Uncle Ike. I have all his ribbons from his service during WWII and was his favorite nephew. He fought in the Pacific theater. He never had any children. He was rather large and worked for my Uncle Tommy (Thomas Jefferson, whose wife Lucille was my mother's sister, so their only child, Phyllis is my double first cousin).
Any way, Uncle Ike worked for Uncle Tommy who built houses in Ormond Beach and when Uncle Tommy would come to a job site and ask if Ike was "round", the other fellas would tell him that he was wasn't round but he was almost round. All chuckled at that for many years. He was special to me and I always visited with him and his little chichuala (sp. ) puppy every time I drove to Fla to visit my parents in their later years. I would like to have him transferred to me as well.
Several others have transferred family members to me as well.
I let my cousin, Ann Jarmer, do the work on my parents several years ago when I did not have time and I was also helping her find out who her grandparents were for her dad who was adopted (son of my Aunt Kathryn Kittrell). Ann is a delightful lady who lives in Oregon.
Most all of these family members are from the line of Daniel Jefferson Kittrell who moved to Fla in the 1910s and they were born there. Dad was and we moved to SC when he went into the ministry in 1949 and I stayed here. Many are buried in Volusia Mem Park cemetery, in Ormond Beach, many in the veteran section.
I have included in my book a chapter on the various members of the Kittrell family who served in the Rev War, War of 1812, Mexican War, Civil War, Spanish-American War. I note that they served with much valor and on both sides in the Civil War (on the Northern side were those from eastern Tenn and from Ill, Mass, and Mo). We have several from Orangeburg County who did not make it home. Quite interesting.
Those in Daytona were honored with a plaque hanging in the library on the beach side of the Halifax River. Several are also honored on a plaque for service in the Civil War, the plaque hanging in the entrance of the court house in Orangeburg.

My love for my family reaches to many branches all over the country (such as Dr. Pleasant Williams Kittrell who introduced the legislation in the Texas legislature in 1858 for the creation of the Univ of Texas) and it has been a love for many years, since 1964 when I first started in law school here in Columbia.
We didn't have internet back then when I got started so I traversed many back roads and towns throughout the south meeting family members I never knew existed but it was quite rewarding. All want me to get the book published so I must do so this year as I am approaching my 75th birthday soon.

Thanks for transferring the several memorials to me that you have done.
The portrait of my father was done to hang in a church he started in Ormond Beach about 1966 that now has over 3,000 members. It means a lot to me.
I do appreciate the work you have done in regard to my extended family; I have so much to list but really don't have time to do all I want to do either. I just want to add to my immediate family.
Go to google and read about me. I don't dare say that to many people but it is filled with much stuff, as I call it. Life for me has been a good ride.

Thank you.

Marvin F. Kittrell, Sr.

RE: 54288188-Josephine Kittrell Davis
He was her husband. They had two children: Virginia Kathryn and Stephen Clarence. I will have to contact some cousins to find out if she is living and if deceased, where she is buried. I have pics of all the Kittrell family members and may at some time put them on Find A Grave; however, right now they are included in my book. I have permission from all family members to use the pics I have in my book or elsewhere since I obtained them from family members at gatherings, etc.......

Isaac Joshua Kittrell
You are missing Isaac Joshua Kittrell (born in 1901), a half-brother in your listing of of the siblings of Josephine Kittrell--54288563.
He was a child of Isaac Franklin Kittrell (my great grandfather and his third wife, Mary Stevenson (we always referred to her surname as Stevenson but it appears that her father was a Steverson who is buried in the Willow Swamp Baptist Church cemetery.
Isaac had six children. You can find them in various Orangeburg County censuses if you care to look.

54288188-Josephine Kittrell Davis
You are missing one child of Edward Davis and his 2nd wife, Josephine Kittrell. See the 1930 Orangeburg County census for Edward Davis.
Her name is Virginia Avenell Davis, born 27 Jan 1930.

The wife of one of the sons of Monie Thelma Davis (JoAnna Patrick) told me that they may have had another child, Susie, before Josephine died in 1932.

Kittrell family
I am the son of Benjamin Franklin Kittrell and see you have some family history on the family on findagrave. Ann Jarmer, a granddaughter of my aunt, Kathryn Kittrell, is maintaining the family history on findagrave at my help and suggestion. I have a long family book on the family and was wondering if you would contact her and let her do all the editing and maintenance of the Kittrell family members on this site. Thanks. I live in Columbia and my email address is You may find Ann's email if you search much under my grandfather, Daniel Kittrell.
Thank you. Marvin F. Kittrell, Sr.

Thank you for your edit. From the name, I assume you are family. If you'd like me to transfer care of her memorial to you, please let me know. Debbie J.

RE: Transfer
I got it, thank you so much. I tend to put things together without reading the directions. I am going to read twice now.
