Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been with Find a Grave for almost four years. Roaming graveyards goes hand in hand with finding ancestors at least in my family. My father and I started on his family in the late seventies and I'm thinking he knew some cemeteries that haven't made it here yet..

I have some days I don't get out and about so I'm working on family and several older cemeteries. Please note I am working from old surveys and personal notes made over the years. Corrections and questions are expected.

My photos are either taken by me or one of two friends. FAG has written permission from them for me to use their photos. Anyone has our permission to use these photos for Non Commercial Use Please do not use them to make a Duplicate Memorial and please caption and attribute photo. I believe a photo is better than no photo and some of the photos are not the best; I will gladly remove any photo on request especially if you have a better one.
My main lines are Smith, Barrineau, Altman and Kelly and it is primarily concentrated in the low country of South Carolina.

Anna Mary Broadway
Hi, Betty,

I have a question about the Find-a-Grave record for someone buried in Home Branch Cemetery in Clarendon County, SC. the gravestone reads "Anna Tindal Broadway," but the transcription of the name published by Find-a-Grave reads "Anna Mary Tisdale Broadway." Is the engraved name an error?

Thanks for your dedication to getting this cemetery information out to all of us who are working on genealogical projects. It's a great gift!

RE: Edits
Thanks so much. I'm not sure why I was looking at Mary Barrineau's page. I must have mistaken her for someone else. Yesterday was my first day on Find A Grave, so I sorry if I was making some mistakes yesterday. I'm getting more familiar with it now because of your suggestions last night. I didn't mean to upset you. I truly do appreciate all of the work you've done for me and other people that are looking for their family members. Thanks a bunch for getting back in touch with me and letting me know.

Hi Betty, I have added my email address to my profile, so that others can contact me now from the site. I couldn't find an email address to send this to you, so I'm posting it in the public messages again, which is probably the wrong way to do it. I'm sorry I didn't ask about the transfers the right way. I will take a look at the FAQs page some more, so I can do it the way I'm supposed to. I really do appreciate the memorial pages that you've made for my maternal grandparents, and great-grandparents. And thank you for changing some of the info on them that I sent to you through the editing pages. I'll have to figure out now where on the editing pages that I can request transfers from. I'm still confused on that, but I'll study up on it some, so I can do it right. And you mentioned Mary Jane Holliday Barrineau as being your great grandmother, but I don't believe I've ever heard that name before, and don't think she is part of my family tree. But since we may have some overlapping family members, I may come across her name and find more info on that. If there is some way you might could contact me now through email, so I could send you the info again, I sure would appreciate it. Meanwhile, I'll go in and look at the FAQs again sometime today or maybe tomorrow, and try to get it figured out how to ask for transfers the right way next time. Thanks so much for helping me. It does take a community like this to help fill in the gaps for those of us that have been trying to find the answers for a long time. And especially since all of our older family members are gone now, and we can't ask them about any of our ancestors anymore. I'm so glad Find A Grave is online and is thriving. I hope it stays here forever for future generations. Thanks again for your help. - Jill

Hello, could you please transfer several of your memorial pages to me including "James Ezra Tennant" #84369494, and his wife "Mary Thigpen "Mamie" Tennant" #84369404, who are my maternal great-grandparents. Also "Franklin Witherspoon Thigpen" #84434372, and his wife "Ellen Baker Thigpen #84434187", who are my maternal gg-grandparents. I am trying to connect all of my family together. I appreciate you taking the time to create memorial pages for them. It was very kind of you. Thanks a bunch...Jill

RE: Aunt Garnet
Hi Betty,

I went back for the last few weeks and didn't find an e-mail from you....I even checked my junk file thinking that maybe have gone there because of the security set up on my machine.

I can complete understand getting your feelings together. The same week we lost Aunt Garnet I also lost a 45 years old nephew. He had an aneurysm burst and we are all in a state of shock. Aunt Garnet was buried on Monday and he was buried on Tuesday. God will have to guide all of us through all of this heartbreak. It's the only way I can cope with all of this happening at the same time.

RE: Aunt Garnet
Hi Betty, I haven't gotten a e-mail from you but I was wondering if you could add Aunt Garnets obit to her page. Did you get to her funeral? I usually come down but I had just gotten home from visiting my brother. I would have had to come down late Sunday night and drive back Monday right after the funeral....that's about a 17 hours drive. I met you Dad a few times over the years and may have met you also, but I don't remember.

Garnet Thompson

Hi Betty, I'm not sure if you're related to Garnet but I would love to handle her memorial. She is my Aunt and I have more information I'd like to add.

Thank You.

William Ardis 84363571
Afternoon Betty, you show William Ardis, memorial number 84363571 as William Ardis II,,,just wondering why you don't recognize him as "Jr.", I attached obit showing that as his name suffix. And technically, his Father is a "Sr." and his son is a "III", so my lessons tell me he is a "Jr.". Now the real reason for the contact this way, I sent an edit the "old" way this afternoon asking "why", about 138pm, and then I got a response from a Betty Shaw about 530pm, that didn't say anything really, just confused me actually. Hoping you might have knowledge about that as well. Thanks Don

Duplicate Memorials
Hey Betty,

Please delete Memorials #83132318 for Hugh Leroy Dubose and #83132085 for Sara Elizabeth DuBose.

The picture that you have in these Memorials is the footstone for Luther LeRoy DuBose (#60259337) and is already included in his pictures.

Hugh LeRoy DuBose already has a Memorial of his own (#66697151) and Sara Elizabeth DuBose is still living.

These duplicate pages are causing Hugh and Sara to show as Luther's siblings when they are his children and as children to Luther's parents when they are grandchildren.

Thanks for your help!
