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 Jan. 10: William Driggers. Restoring and preserving photographs and digital media.

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)

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."

Thank you for the additional information. I added to the memorial. Also, when I was adding the place of birth and death, I noticed the wrong year printed in the obituary and corrected it.

RE: 40457488
The database that I use(d) is called America's Historical Newspapers, under the
America's Historical Newspapers Select collection: Dallas Morning News.

You may be able to purchase a subscription, and comb the newspapers as if you had them all on microfiche. There is also a link showing you may be able to log-in through your library, should your library be subscribed. You might find any major university has a subscription to this - walk in, and use their computers.

Some papers can be searched by keyword, but the older issues did not take to OCR well and should be visually scanned.

RE: 40457488
Sorry - the database that I use is provided by my University, and it seems they have reduced the subscription to reflect only 1978 to present. I did not notice this until now. So, I can't search the paper for you.

It seems the son or the like was the only one who died in Dallas -

RE: mcclary cem
The gps for this cemetery is
Latitude: 33.65200, Longitude: -79.77000
I am making some assumption here. I was constructing a virtual cemetery for WWII service killed in service. A Black soldier, David McClary had a veteran's s stone installed. I tried three times to find this cemetery and just happened to ask a local who lived on Boggy swamp road and he pointed it out to me. You have to drive a trail about a quarter mile to the edge of a woods. There is no sign and no fence. a garmin should get you close. I ventured into the brush and uncovered one stone. #137596781

I have been looking for another lost cemetery near the Green Rd and Cades Rd intersection. When I was young, I did farm work on the farm now owned by Will Carsten and remember several stones amoung grown trees. My Mother remembered someone being buried there but could not recall the name.

Another subject: I have eight ancestors who are confederate veterans with no stone. The va rejected my application because I could produce no documentation showing that they were buried in the family cemetery. Any suggestion here?

RE: Folly Cemetery in Socastee
I don't remember being approached as to what I was doing...but I may have asked/verified with someone that I saw..."I'm headed back to the's back here, right?" "Just walk that path right there...." they said...and it wasn't far back there at all...

RE: Folly Cemetery in Socastee

Take Watergate Dr back there and take the left turn on Hague/Marina Dr. Where Hague Dr takes the elbow turn to the right towards the Intercoastal Waterway...there is a parking space off to the left side of the road. It is behind the boat yard. When I visited and photographed everything back there, I moved the location pin to directly over top of it. You will walk for not far of a distance maybe 30 yards...the path is would definitely be the time of the year to go.
