As a volunteer with Horry County's Historic Cemetery Registration Project, we see many unmarked graves. The goal is to gather information for county records. We also offer our photos to findagrave.
Horry County is proud to have received South Carolina's "2011 J. Mitchell Graham Memorial Award, the competition's top honor, for it's project to preserve an estimated 450 historic cemeteries in the county's unincorporated areas-approximately one for every 2.5 square miles."
(this quoted portion taken directly from Vol. 22, number 3, p 6, County Focus Magazine, South Carolina Association of Counties).
I remember that old saying "It's easier to plow around a stump" when I work on findagrave. Sometimes it's like that. Most times though, I'm lucky to work with other contributors who welcome contact, check their edit requests regularly, and are cordial. Oh, if we all were like that! Oh, wait, that would be a perfect world... not possible.
The more people we have working together, the fewer people we have to work against. The more we do together, the more we get done. The more we learn from each other, the better our results.
A difficult stone can reveal many secrets with a simple spray of water and toothbrush, or aluminum foil wrap and soft toothbrush to obtain an impression. (See memorial #51880376).
PLEASE no flour, shave cream or chalk.
My personal belief: "To each of you reading this, if you are a cemetery walker, then God Bless for your energy. And if you document your findings with photos or entries on fag.com, God Bless again and I'm grateful for your work done and your future efforts. Each grave contains someone's loved one who has passed away. Each life had meaning and still influences those left behind. We carry our loved ones in our hearts even after they are gone from this earth."

|Darleen Miller||RE: Hillcrest photo requests|
Thanks. I just made a note earlier this week to contact Hillcrest and Forest Lawn for some burial info. Linda Wallis was very helpful with my McKenzie family at Catholic Cemetery.
|Darleen Miller||Amanda Wittschen|
Thank you for the addition to Amanda's memorial. I appreciate it.

Susan, unfortunately, I have moved away from Horry County and am in fact living out of State now. I will be unable to assist.

I have added the father of Marie if you want to link them... 125452384
|Candace Smith||RE: Marie Agnes Kelly Morgan|
It was no trouble.. I am trying to add photos and graves to the Catholic cemetery in Savannah and I always check facts and dates as much as possible before I add the memorial. I check families so I can make family connection whenever possible so there was no problem looking for this name. The daughter that is listed does not have a memorial in Bonaventure if you want to add one and connect her to her parents. Another child is Joseph Harold Morgan Dec 5 2008 Columbia. I don't know if he has a memorial but there is a very detailed obit about him online. A third child died in 1976 in SC John Philip Morgan Sr. I don't know if he has a memorial either. C J Smith
|Candace Smith||Marie Agnes Kelly Morgan|
I looked for her tree on Ancestry.com. They had her listed as a Kelly, daughter of John Joseph Kelly and Ellen Coveney. Since the info on this site is no reliable as fact, I looked for a marriage cert. but only found that they were married in SAvannah at Sacred Heart Church Feb 2 1914. I looked for an obit from one of their children to see if it mentioned the maiden name of the mother and I found the following for a daughter...Loretta Morgan Sewell Groves, 91, died Friday, February 26, 2010 at St. Joseph's Hospital. She was born on November 2, 1918 in Columbia, South Carolina to the late Philip H. and Marie Kelly Morgan. Mrs. Groves attended the University of South Carolina where she was a member of the Chi Omega Sorority. She was a communicant of Blessed Sacrament Catholic Church. She was a member of the Savannah Golf Club for over 75 years and a member of the Savannah Garden Club. She was one of the original volunteers for the Savannah Welcome Wagon, an avid Bridge player and golfer, and a Pink Lady for St. Joseph's Hospital.
She was preceded in death by her first husband, Dr. Gaines E. Sewell, Jr. and her second husband, Dr. James Groves.
She is survived by her son, Gaines Gregory Sewell and his wife, Peggy Butler Sewell, of Savannah, daughter, Celeste Mongomery and her husband, George Montgomery, of Savannah, and five grandchildren, Melanie Montgomery Belveal and her husband, Bradley, Melissa Montgomery Smith, and her husband, Jeffery, Gregory G. Sewell, and his wife, Blair Capallo Sewell, F. Ryan Sewell and his wife, Sarah Kindred Sewell, and Michelle Loretta Montgomery Nichols, and her husband, Richard. Also surviving are four great-grandchildren and eight nieces and nephews.

Thanks for providing Mr. Loupo's middle name. I have updated his Find A Grave memorial with the information.
|Chris & Kelli Daniels||Loupo|
Got the message of the duplicates and will correct it sometime tomorrow. I have the pictures on my computer and will upload them on your memorials. No this is not my family but just a cemetery in my local area. Thanks :), Chris D.
|Linda Claxton||Roy J Eitel|
Hi- I got your message and transfer. Happy to maintain his memorial. I'm actually a data manager for Ft Rosecrans so if you find any more that need to be maintained go ahead and transfer them to me.
Thank you. Duplicate of Robert Ervin Hall, Jr. 91061841 has been deleted.
