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.
Carol Elias I was at St. Aloysius Cemetery trying to photograph headstones for a number of people. It's a decent sized cemetery and I was not able to find the headstones by walking around. I stopped by the church (610-326-5877) and the man in charge of the records would not help me. Was actually a jerk about the request. He said I had to put in a written request and there would be a fee just to get me the location within the cemetery. I found 2 other headstones with that last name, but they are not the ones you are looking for. I would be happy to send you that picture. There are other requests for this cemetery that have specific locations listed and I don't know how they got that info if this guy was the gate keeper.

Hugh Gibson Hi, I have been to Warren Cemetery 3 times now I'm having trouble finding Hugh Gibson. I looked at the cemetery records and Hugh isn't listed in the records at all. I will be going back and I will take a look again and see if I can try and find Hugh.
I recently started researching my family and I wanted to let you know that I am related to Zarvis through his father's (Daniel Roy Ford) brother (John Hardy Ford). My grandmother's grandma (we always called her Grandma Faulkenberry) is John H. Ford's daughter.
I'm messaging to say thank you for all the information you've put up about the Ford family, and I look forward to finding more about them. I was always told they came from Ireland, so I can't wait to find the ancestors who brought the family over the ocean.
James Ford Born 1660AD Suzanne, I saw an old posting you added to Geni and I replied only to receive a message that you had not logged into that site in many years, but I found you here! Was wondering if you had ever uncovered where our Ford's sailed from? England or Barbados? Hope to hear from you.
