Our Interest in the Findagrave come as researchers of our Family History
To bring back to memory the history of a life that was lived,
My Surname -Paternal O'Shields-Hyatt-Mayes-Smith-Black-Maternal-Riddle-Rampley-Wilson
Doris family Surname -Wilson Lusk Corbin-Smith Beck, Maternal--Rice -Moore-Pitman-Andrews-Gosnell--Shipman--Merrill--Ashworth-
all of these listed are Grandparents.
We are working to connect families together on F.A.G To make it an easy process for anyone in search of their family history. My purpose is to help.
F,A,G is the most helpful tool I have come across in doing research. I personally think it is better than D,N,A when a family member knows who is related. It can reach from State to State.
So if anyone knows where a mistake has been made please let us know. In the future I will not add family pictures to the memorial because they are being picked up by websites that want to use them for profit.

Pitman/Gosnell Ancestry
I am a descendent of the Pitman, Gosnell, and Ballew/Belue/Bellew lines in upper South Carolina and would love to connect with you regarding this ancestry. I have been working on it for a few years as this is my father's line and no one had any interest in connecting the dots. You can reach me at

RE: MEMORIAL FOR Thomas Seabern Thomas
Yes, I had all that information already. I have researched the Thomas Family extensively. The current Tyger River Park in southern Sptbg County is the old homestead of John Thomas Thomas (Thomas' Father) farm prior to the outbreak of the Civil War.
The Thomas Family has always been closely connected to me in thoughts. Thanks again for your help.

RE: MEMORIAL FOR Thomas Seabern Thomas
Thank you for all the information. I had heard of the book, but could not find a copy.
I know Thomas had given his word to John Landrum Gentry that he would "take care" of John's family if he were to die in the War.(Which he did) Thomas later married John's widow.
I will place all your information in his profile.
Best Regards,

Patrick, Please look at memorial 117279100 for John Gwin. I'm just wondering if you might know where this family cemetery is located. The directions listed on the cemetery is not helpful. Any help appreciated.
Thanks-Dwight Crowe
