April 2016 Current survey work completed for Horry County, SC:
Pine Island near Socastee, SC (620+ burials).
Mount Calvary #2, Little River, SC is surveyed now for Horry County (May 23, 2016).
Durant Cemetery just outside of Conway off Hwy 905 -12 burials (May 20, 2016).
St John Freewill Baptist (187 burials) 5/29/2016.
Union Chapel (51 burials) 5/29/2016.

Volunteering with the Horry County Historic Cemetery Registration Project has taken us to cemeteries a good distance away as Horry County is quite large. The goal of this project is to support the existence of a cemetery for the future, the location of it's burials and names of the deceased buried there. The project consists of surveying the entire cemetery by photographing and gps'ing each gravesite. This information is kept by the Planning Department of Horry County and made available when building permits are requested. Our photos are also posted to findagrave in the hopes of helping others with their family research. Hopefully our efforts will be used by many who are researching their ancestors and who want to visit the final resting places of their family members. If you would like to use any of our stone photos we have taken you are welcome to do so.

There are three deaths. The first is when the body ceases to function. The second is when the body is consigned to the grave. The third is that moment, sometime in the future, when your name is spoken for the last time. - David Eagleman

The Grand Strand Genealogy Club held in Chapin Library, Myrtle Beach, SC, meets 2nd Saturday of the month, 10:30 am 1st floor conference room.

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

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."
Susan Rogerson Perhala

spray water may help, sometimes in combination with a soft toothbrush. Sometimes I put the toothbrush into the dirt beside the stone, using the dirt like nature's ink, and rub the toothbrush (dirt and all) across the inscription/dates. Too much water and you get nothing.

Another option is to use aluminum foil on the stone surface. Enough foil to wrap around the corners of the stone. Use soft toothbrush to brush across the foil and get an impression of what's on the stone. Remove the foil and take it to a shaded place to be able to read the impression on the foil.

Sometimes I am lucky enough to find the information I need on ancestry, maybe a birth or death certificate, sometimes an obit that gives date information or names spouse/parents, etc.

Cemeteries in the LANE,SC AREA
Hello Susan,
I have knowledge about the cemeteries in this area. Unfortunately, many records/markers were destroyed and some Misplaced during hurricane Hugo. There are a lot more remains buried in these cemeteries than there are markers. Sadly, a lot of the history recorded can be found in family collections of obituaries and oral history without markers to verify or confirm at the actual cemeteries.. You may find that those who volunteer may not find any evidence that the graves/markers actually exists at the grave sites. I have also heard this to be true in the surrounding communities, but can only speak assuredly to the area in which I reside.

I am not sure what can be done to capture information of where graves once were, but wanted to make you aware of this information.
Thank you for all you do

Dear Susan,

Thank you for bringing the matter of the duplicated cemetery to our attention. I am taking actions to have the cemeteries merged, and I am thankful to fellow Find A Grave member PC for being understanding, as I see your post about this on her contributor page.

RE: Dup cemetery
It appears the others did much more work and entered more data than I did, so I'd rather their work stand. This was a hobby - I'd rather defer to those that put time into entering data as they did. A "blending" by the F.A.G. administrators would contribute so much more for those that come searching in the future.

Hi Susan,

I've already transferred the memorials of the Blue family to John Maxwell except the ones I wanted to retain.

Susan, I don't think it's a duplicate. Different date of birth and death. I suspect they are mother and father. Let me know if I'm missing something.
