Well, I've mailed in my DNA sample to ancestry to see what shakes out. But the greatest blessing is to make contact with some new family members and share research findings including family photos.

Renee Brown Dixon's powerpoint handout to her DNA presentation is now posted on the Grand Strand Genealogy Club's website for anyone to view, see:

I am an active member of The Grand Strand Genealogy Club held in Chapin Library, Myrtle Beach, SC. Meeting time 10:15 am 1st floor conference room.
Next Speaker Dec 13: Charlene Carson. Finding your Roots (Henry Louis Gates, Jr.) Season 1.

REMEMBER TO BE KIND to one another. It's hard to lose a living friend. Show the same respect and care to the living as to the deceased.

Please be aware of the "edit button" on your profile page.

RESEARCHING: Rogerson, Clemons, Godwin, Porter, Wiehrs, Asendorf, Wittschen, White, Lancaster, Tarver, Partridge. Husband's side: Perhala, Zima, Kuchta.

As a volunteer with Horry County's Historic Cemetery Registration Project our goal is to gather information for county records. As we survey each cemetery, we photograph and gps each burial site/stone. We also offer our photos to findagrave.

Many thanks to these Volunteers with Horry County Historic Cemetery Registration Project:
Susan Perhala (in the field)
Rich Ryals (in the field)
Jody Mishoe (in the field)
Tawnya Gray (orig. coordinator of volunteers)
Kathy Smith (posting info)
Chris Plaisance (posting info)
Johnny McKelvey (posting info)
Michael Johnson (in the field)
Patti Burns (posting info)
Ann Phillips (posting info)

Thanks also to Roger and Karen Lambert, Don Pigate, Barbara Lehman, Tawnya Gray, Robin Pellici Moore, Deborah Spidle, Dot Harcum, and Fred Ricks for guidance and patience.

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).

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, 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."

RE: Wrong photo
I think that I got it corrected before before seeing your message. I realized it right after adding it when the dates didn't match.

RE: Dailey Family Cemetery
Thanks, each funeral home marker contains one name. One has the wife's name the other the husband's name. See the stone marker for those exact names. The funeral home markers are at the ground depressions located by family knowledge. My late sister researched the Dailey Family and had in her possession objects from the Dailey home which stood nearby. The Daileys were among the first settlers in Franklin County, Georgia.

RE: Dailey Family Cemetery
This is correct. The names are identical. My late sister who purchased the stone and set it in place in the cemetery was not sure about Lucy's maiden name. Some persons on think they have discovered it, but I am not sure. There may be others buried in this, the Dailey Cemetery. Thanks for your interest.

RE: New Boynton Cemetery Duplicates
Thank you so much. I was heartbroken to think that info would be lost. I have found so much info for my "brick walls" on Find A Grave and I hope the info I provide will do the same for others. Dianne

RE: photos
I did not remove them, yet, I cannot find them either. I will check to see if I saved them.

RE: New Boynton Cemetery Duplicates
Susan, I will delete them if you insist. But, every duplicate that is now out there (I have already deleted over 100) has additional family info including links and other info about the deceased. I had created all of the memorials because this cemetery has gone by a number of different names and is currently known as Dailey Hills and I knew nothing about it being called New Boynton a number of years ago. Thank you for your consideration. Dianne
