|Bio and Links|
I am a mom of 2 girls, and the chosen mom of a few others, grandma of 5. I have been married for 40 years to the same man and have been taking photos for findagrave for seven years now. I have always taken photos of family markers and found this sight when I did a search on my dad just to see what came up. I would do more but so many cemeteries are in such bad shape that I just can't get good photos.
I try to stick to small cemeteries and when I go for a photo request, just photograph all the stones.
I have family and friends in at least 11 of the cemeteries in Orangeburg, Clarendon and Florence counties. Trininty Lutheran, Antioch, Gerizim, Santee First Baptist, Jerusalem Methodist, Dantzler-Hart, Holly, Springhill, Oak Grove Methodist, Florence National Cemetery...
I list memorials for people that I am willing to take photos of their monuments when available, I never used list but think I will start doing so in the near future. I have relatives and close friends that cannot be linked because I don't have proof and someone got them listed before I did.
We all do a service for this site by making these memorials, I have changed a few several times and it does get annoying, but don't cramp up the system just yet.
I am glad to add any additional information you have and to correct any mistakes I have made,(MOSTLY TYPOS) and putting the wrong birth year in when they were born in the 1800's. Used to not be able to make that kind of mistake on here, it would actually alert you! Never really could type and the amputation and replantation of three fingers on my dominant hand has not improved my typing ability so please alert me to mistakes and not add that "Common sense" should tell me otherwise. I really despise smartypants!

Would you consider transferring Sgt Washington A. Brewer's memorial to me? I would appreciate it and owe you.
|Jeffrey Lee Overby Holliday||RE: Lila Olin|
Thank you Miss Deborah.
|D.L.Reynolds||Charles Demar Metzger|
On the Find A Grave site for him, you posted a picture. There are two women & man. I am 'assuming' the man is Charles. Do you know who the women are?
Hey, you are awesome for the work you have put into this. You have inspired me to start doing it for "all" the people in my tree; I had already done it for my parents. Thanx, Diana Reynolds
|Sandy Lapper||RE: Charlton Holladay|
That would be totally awesome! Thank you! My e-mail is firstname.lastname@example.org.
|Sandy Lapper||Charlton Holladay|
I have sent a message to the person who posted an entry for Charlton asking why more information wasn't included when there had been more available a former entry. I don't want to add fuel to the fire, but I would like for as full a picture as possible is painted for my dear cousin. Hope to get a positive response though chances of that may be slim to none.

Thanks for all the entries you've made. I noticed that Willard Meinardi Hill #39933266 is incorrectly linked to Lucius Franklin Hill and Jessie G Galloway Hill as parents and all siblings are incorrect as well. Willard William Hill of Greenwood is the correct Willard for this family. Do you know how to unlink your Willard? I don't really know how the linking works.

Thanks for your response. I do hope you are home and feeling better soon.
|Theo Mabry||ccorrecction of cemetery name|
Hi,Deborah. The correct name for the cemetery in which Katherine Jones Goins is buried is John Goins Cemetery, Greeleyville, Williamsburg County, South Carolina.
I believe her last name is spelled without an "g" between the "n" and "s". If you post this info on this cemetery, her name and info will appear with that of 15 others in the John Goins Cemetery. Her husband and her son are buried in this cemetery and the three could be linked together.
Thank you so much for your efforts in locating and posting cemetery records. It is such a great help to genealogists.

Your photos are excellent, Donna!
Thank you for all your work.
I appreciate everything you do to help reconnect the families with their children!! Genealogists in years to come will be as grateful to you, as I am now!!!
