|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. :)

I wanted to see if you would connect John Daniel Jackson with his parents.
James J. Jackson Find A Grave # 129649901
Lydia Herring Find A Grave # 129650070
These would be my 3rd Great Grandparents.
Your memorial for James Houston (# 21765277) has him linked to John and Margaret Cunningham Houston, but records indicate that their son James, who was their eldest and born in about 1718, stayed behind in Ireland when the rest of the family immigrated and he died in about 1740. This James couldn't possibly be their child.
|Jo Church Dickerson||Neil Miller|
Re: your memorial page for Neil Miller at: http://findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=94878422
There was no Cornelius Miller. His name was Neil, not Cornelius. He appears in many records, including census, military, deeds, voting records, his tombstone, etc. as Neil, Neal, and once as Niel.
In only ONE of those many records is his name shown as "Cornelius". This was in the 1880 census of Marion County where the enumerator apparently took it upon himself to lengthen Neil's name to "Cornelius". As I said, it has been found in no other record.
I am descended from Neil's sister, Telatha (Miller) Cook, and have been learning about and researching my grandfather's Cook and Miller families since I was old enough to listen to the old-timers sit around the fireplace telling their stories on those cold winter nights. None of them referred to Uncle Neil Miller as anyone other than Neil. And no other known record shows his name as anything other than Neil.
I'm hoping I can convince you to please change the "Cornelius" on his memorial page to the name on his tombstone. Else how will his numerous descendants, who never heard of "Cornelius Miller" find him on Findagrave?
Thanks for your attention, and for all the good work you do on Findagrave.
|TWashington||RE: Doris Eleanor Shirley|
I thought that might be the case, but didn't see the marker. I did a different check, and it appears she may very well be alive in the Greenville, SC area and about 90 years old. Thanks for your response and your work.
|TWashington||Doris Eleanor Shirley|
I was searching for Doris Eleanor (Alexander) Shirley DOB 11 Mar 1926 and found your post giving her burial place as Oconee Memorial Park and Mausoleum, Seneca, Oconee County, South Carolina. However there was no death date. In following up with the cemetery today, they report they have no record of a Doris Eleanor Shirley. Do you have any information that can help me?

You have a request in F A G for a photo of a grave. This F A G memorial site does not include the Plot and/or Lot numbers which would help easily find the graves you want photographed.
If you will call or email the Forest Hill Cemetery and ask for Plot and Lot information, I would be glad to go there and take the photographs for you.
The office number is 315-735-2701 and their email is firstname.lastname@example.org
Once you have the information, please add it to the person’s F A G memorial site and mark it with a “Photo Request” or email me the burial information at email@example.com
Please note: If the gravestone is covered in lichen or moss I will attempt to clean them with water and soft soap solution, except for older slate and limestone gravestones. I do not use shaving cream, chalk or abrasives.
GPS Coordinate update: Also note, I routinely update the GPS coordinates on the individual’s F A G memorial to those of the specific gravesite instead of the cemetery. Please let me know if you do NOT want this updated.

|DIMITRIOS CORCODILOS||RE: Thank You!|
It’s kind of you to offer a transfer, but there’s no need. Just chance her burial location to Felixkirk.
There is a map of the churchyard inside St Felix’s Church, and there don’t appear to be Sinclairs other than Donald and Audrey buried there. I have submitted a photo for Donald, and it’s pending Find A Grave approval.
I don’t know where her brother-in-law is buried, but it’s unlikely to be St Mary’s at Thirsk, since it's now “closed” for burials.
I stumbled across a request you have for a Goff cemetery photo from 2011. I seem to remember a A. Goff mentioned before. Also, I have some information on the Lupo's from Dillon County (called upper Marion County at one time). Contact is firstname.lastname@example.org
Have we ever written each other on Ancestry?
|David W.||Memorial 69531204|
You posted this memorial to Anna Jane Todd Harrelson with unknown relatives/burial site. You said in your personal remarks that you wished to find distant relatives on that side of your family. Well, Anna was the sister of Elisha John Morrison Todd who was my great grandfather. Their grandmother was Merinda Wright Cox who is also an ancestor. We definitely have common ground. I also am on Ancestry with a public site if you care to look on my mother's side of the family, johnwright628. Love to hear from you. I also live in SE North Carolina in Columbus County.
