|Bio and Links|
I was a senior at Clemson (circa 2007) when I randomly created an Ancestry.com account. That's when I discovered that although a few names did come to me, for the most part I didn't know the names of my own great-grandparents. Especially mom's side. The great-aunts and uncles were also a total loss. (At the time trees for more recent generations were not turning up on Ancestry.com or internet searches). Fast forward about 5 years and I've discovered so much and learn more every day. I'm also finding that investigating a random tangent often pays off later when you least expect it!|
Using this site as part of my research of my ancestors, specifically my direct line.
With very few exceptions all parts of my family seem to have lived in South Carolina for a VERY long time. (There are of course a few NC and GA sprinkled in).
I hope to meet some distant relatives!
Above all things I love old family photos. It is my sincerest hope that as long-separated family branches are reunited, treasured family photos can be shared with all descendants.
- Ford -
- Todd -
- Potts -
- Threatt -
If any of these names/combos look familiar contact me and we can compare! Maybe we are relatives! :)
I am currently living in southeastern NC.
*I have added some burial unknown entries. I will delete my entries when someone finds the cemeteries and posts! Just let me know. :)

|Ed Whitehead||Our common ancestors|
Margaret Rawls ( my 2nd cousin) married George Mehaffey in your line. I know of three of their children - Raymond, Sarah and an unknown daughter. If there are more afterward, I am not aware. I alson live in NC - Mount Airy. If we are somewhat related I am always happy to meet distant relations, especially after learning about ancestors..
regards, Ed Whitehead
|Kathleen Heath||RE: Edna Levica Harris|
Thanks. And, much later, after I sent the message I found Annita J Harris the missing daughter of Jesse Thomas (Johnston) Harris and Lula Crockett Potts. It struck me that the J could stand for Jessie and found a newspaper article announcing the marriage (Fort Mill) for a Jessie Anita Harris and Dr Arthur M Buchanan which led to her obituary (Charlotte, NC) which names her sisters and deceased parents as Mr and Mrs Thomas Harris. So Jesse TJ Harris must have moved from Lancaster County to Fort Mill and started going by Thomas. I haven't found him or Lula (graves or obituaries) but will keep looking.
|Kathleen Heath||Edna Levica Harris|
Suzanne, I approach this communication with great respect for your genealogy knowledge and abilities. I have been researching my family for less than a year. Through your work on FindAGrave, you have helped me with so many of my ancestors. However, I believe you have one of the burials mis-identified – Edna Levica Harris; Find A Grave Memorial# 102180689. You have her buried in Milledgeville, Baldwin County, Georgia in Memory Hill Cemetery as Edna Harris Woods. I have been unable to find any links between Edna L Harris and any of the Woods in Baldwin County.
I have been able to find links to Edna Levica Harris and a Leonard E Wood; and, that includes a wedding announcement in local papers that list Edna as being the child of James Pinckney and Ida Potts Harris and her engagement and wedding to Leonard E Wood of Sharpsburg, GA. She has also applied for a delayed birth certificate and shows her address as being in Sharpsburg, GA. With that I found another entry - created by Linda Abbott with the record added on Aug 10, 2005 - Find A Grave Memorial# 11514237 that is in Sharpsburg, Coweta County, Georgia in the Sharpsburg Baptist Church Cemetery. This Edna Harris Wood is in the same cemetery with Leonard E Wood. I have put in a photo request for this burial with the note asking for its position in relation to Leonard E Wood’s grave.
I believe you are also on Ancestry.com and would like to give you my profile page for Edna - http://trees.ancestry.com/tree/14919670/person/28081143666. If you are not, please let me know the best way to get the information I have to you. If you see any errors, please let me know. Kathleen Heath (I am descended through James Pinckney Harris’ brother William Franklin Harris, both married to Potts sisters.
|Sandra Johnson Witt||Eileen Pace gravestone|
I have just posted the photo of Eileen Pace's gravestone on her Find-a-Grave memorial page. The current photo is much clearer than the one that I posted to her husband's grave because of the weather conditions, I assume.
|LaDonna & Richard McKelvey||RE: Preserved|
Yes I did and added the photo to your Find A Grave Memorial with the information that was sent to me by sbwaldron190. "This plaque is located in Lake View, SC near the Lake View Cemetery next to a grove of trees behind a barn and is surrounded by a brick fence." I believe that this Memorial could be added to the Lake View Cemetery with that explanation and that James could be also. Will leave that decision to you.
|Courtney Jacobs W||Berkley G Fowler|
I came across your photo of Berkley G Fowler. This would have been my Great Grandfather. I did not know of any photos that existed. Do you have anymore or know of anyone that would have access to more? His daughter Eva Mae (from his 1st wife) was my grandmother. I would love to get into contact with anyone with any information on him.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
|LaDonna & Richard McKelvey||RE: Preserved|
Thank you, I took your advise and did that.
|LaDonna & Richard McKelvey||Preserved "Zarv" Ford 80720906|
This tree has a memorial plaque which states that the graves of Ford Family are there. Do you know where this plaque is located?
|Frank Ford||Fords in South Carolina|
I spoke with you a few years back about finding my grandfather's grave. He was Wilbur Ford, son of H. P. Ford and a grandson of William 'Little Bill' Ford. Still have not found it, but have upped my game since then including a trip to SC and a fair amount of research. I have a picture that I feel 99% confident is William 'Little Bill'. Also, in the pic is his 2nd wife; his son, John N and wife and three of John N's children. I thought you would be interested in the pic and the story behind it. I would also value your opinion. I know I could just slap it on the memorial, but feel I should let you see it and decide since you created the memorial. Let me know and I can put it there and message you the story or send you an email. Your choice. My e mail is email@example.com. I think you will agree with me.
All the best

I have tried to fulfill your request for this marker in Riverside Cemetery in Horry County. I found her husband's memorial and the plot but she is not next to him. There seems to be an empty space but I cannot tell if a grave is there. A marker might not have been placed for her. Do you wish to me to post the Family marker? Bruce
