I'm so glad they created this website for our loved ones. I think it is a great place to visit your relatives and leave flowers for them. I recently started looking to find my ancestors of where I came from. I am addicted to genealogy now.

John McClary In memory of my 6th great grandfather. He was the husband to Nancy Elizabeth Jamison 1766-1829. - Craig Handy Added: Feb. 25, 2013
Hi Craig, I believe you have the wrong John McClary here. (Find A Grave Memorial# 59917778) This John McClary came from Ireland to South Carolina where he lived until his death. He was never married to a Nancy. I think your John was in Tennessee? Cindy
RE: Abel Lanham Thank you so much for both of your responses! They are very helpful. If you are so inclined, you might want to take a look at the narrative I put on my blog about Abel Lanham. You can see it at http://kithandkinchronicles.com .
On the memorial for Andrew McCrary, 105955468, it states in text that his parents were John McClary and Nancy Jamison but the parent links go to Samuel McClary and Deborah Polk. Would you please clarify? You may leave a public message or contact me via email.
Many thanks for the memorial. I errantly wrote that Andrew is a 5x and 6x great-grandfather, but he is a 6x and 7x great.
Andrew McClary family Bible picture Thank you so much, Craig, for including the uploaded picture of the family Bible of the McClary family. My deceased husband and our daughters are all descendants of Esther McClary Coleman. What a thrill to have seen her name in the family Bible name list!
Henry Kent Bliss (1835-1909) Hello - I just finished writing a bio sketch for Henry; also, I added a photo of him and his wife that was sent to me by a Johnson family researcher, years ago. Theresa JOHNSON Bliss (1842-1920) is my 3rd great-grandaunt.

Samuel Handy ---> Wonder no more! Hi Craig! Thank you for the transfers, this will make my research findings and posting to Samuel and Jane's memorials much easier. I had a call from Greenwood Cemetery's administrator this morning and guess what? Samuel is there beside Jane! Also found: Annie Elizabeth (maiden name Handy) Parton (Annie was the daughter of Albert Galiton/Gallatin Handy -- Albert G. was the son of Sam and Jane -- Annie was therefore the granddaughter of Samuel and Jane); John A. Parton, Sr. (husband of Annie); and Thomas Henry Parton, Sr. (brother of John A. Parton, Sr.). I'm going to place another call to discover whether other Handy individuals might be interred in Row 16-A with Samuel and Jane. All of the above grave locations are in Greenwood Cemetery's First Addition section (several rows apart though), and I will be sending edits to update their memorials accordingly. Just in case you haven't discovered it yet, on your member page and directly under your member name is your Edits tab, which will allow you to process any edits sent to you by other Find A Grave members (I sent you a couple prior to your transferring Samuel and Jane and I will take care of those from my end). I'm hot on the trail of your peeps! Kind regards, Bridey
