IF YOU DO NOT KNOW ABOUT THE (FAIRLY) NEW SHORTCUT EDIT SCREEN ON FINDAGRAVE, PLEASE READ THIS NOTE. YOU HAVE AN EDIT BUTTON ON YOUR PROFILE PAGE FOR EDITS DIRECTED TO YOU-YOU WON'T GET AN EMAIL NOTIFICATION. PLEASE CHECK THOSE EDITS.

RESEARCHING: Rogerson, Clemons, Godwin, Porter, Wiehrs, Asendorf, Wittschen.

As a volunteer with Horry County's Historic Cemetery Registration Project our goal is to gather information for county records. 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).

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."
Blessings,
Susan Rogerson Perhala

RE: 59304720
Yes, back in late 2012 I transferred over 20,000 to Find A Grave because at the time I was too busy to manage them. I regret it, but at least they are really good about making changes.

RE: Barbados
Hi.
I live in UK but my mother was born in the West Indies and lived her teenage years in Barbados.

There is now a family history group supported by the Barbados Museum and the Records Office as well as a Facebook group if you are interested.

Macedonia Cemetery
Early Morning
I think that is the best way to put it - one church and 3 cemeteries. The old church on Ft. Jackson was torn down and the next one was built on Percival Road where there is a "new" cemetery. The old graves from Ft. Jackson were moved to what became known as Old Macedonia Cemetery some miles away off Percival Road. The first Macedonia on Ft. Jackson may still show on an aerial map as does several of the other churches that were moved back in the 1940's.

My activity on Find-A-Grave
Susan,
I have not been very active for the last while. I have been doing name indexing for the LDS Church and we also built a new home in a different city. Grantsville, Utah. I am just getting getting back into Find-A-Grave now.

Macedonia Cemetery
Afternoon Susan
Sorry to be late getting back to you. Seems as if this is going to be a confusing situation. This is the same cemetery but has been listed under 2 names Macedonia and Old Macdonia. Looks like they need to be merged. You can see from the sign that it does say Old Macedonia Cemetery. This is the one that came off of Ft. Jackson property when they moved the varioius cemeteries off their land. The newer Macedonia Baptist Church on Percival Rd. has a cemetery there on it's property also.
Guess we will have to leave it up to Findagrave to merge the 2.

Thank you for giving me the links to Chalmers Soles' parents and THANK YOU for your work in Horry County! My grandfather was born at Simpson Creek so I consider Horry a part of my family homelands. I am also an 11th generation descendent of the Mayflower's George Soule. If I can ever help you with anything in the Chattanooga area, please let me know.
