Bio and Links
Bio Photo We are David & Effie. We were born and raised in upstate South Carolina. I found Find A Grave in 2009 and now David has joined me in a search for our "lost" family members. We sincerely hope that along the way our contributions to this site will help others find theirs.

We wish to thank those who have made memorials for our family members and those who have transfered management of them to us. We especially want to thank those who have made the corrections we requested, as correct and complete data is the key to accomplishing our goals.

Our primary sources of information for our memorials, other than direct knowledge of burial, are grave marker photos and obituaries. We use these sources as backup for our entries, as we DO NOT make any without proof of burial location.

Our motto is... to err is human, and to correct is necessary. Please contact us if you find an error on our memorials or if you have missing information that we can add to make an appealing and honorable memorial. We will gladly correct any errors on our entries, make additions, add links or transfer memorials if they are not related to us. (please use the EDIT tab and make a suggestion option on the memorial for any request.)

We understand that a photo says more than a thousand words, and is a very important part of family research. It is our pleasure to offer our photos for personal genealogical purposes. You may re-post on Find A Grave if you will have the courtesy to give us credit in the caption of the photo. Otherwise, DO NOT RE-POST!

Everyone is welcome to visit and leave a flower for our immediate family members listed below or any of our memorials and once again, we wish to thank all of our Find A Grave friends who have done a wonderful job in helping preserve our heritage and making this a wonderful site.

RE: Cleveland Columbus 45225300
I was requesting that Cleveland Columbus Seay be replaced with William Cleveland Seay, Sr. William Cleveland is my uncle and the son of Mary Elizabeth Bishop Seay and James Belton Seay and the brother of my mother, Elsia Tarol Seay Metcalf. Someone has now removed Cleveland Columbus, but William Cleveland hasn't been added. Now, are you thoroughly confused? Haha
Thank you for all of your help.

162609511 magic disappearing trick
on oct 12 2012 effie and david put a picture on their site.

in 2016 some one else owns the memorial and you didnt transfer.

I think it is just magic that someone puts a memorial in after you have added a picture to a memorial you created.

just thought you might like to know how your numbers magically go down.
we have found a lot of this happening and we finally figured out how the trick works.

thought you might be interested in this magic trick

. took us awhile to figure out what was going on.

if you have a memorial created before death and even if you add the death date
create a new memorial with a date after death or it just might disappear.
we work among magicians

Azilee and B. O. Barnett (e)
Hi there! Miss Azilee I. Barnett, #40076441 (1902-2002) was never married. I have found you have her connected to B. O. Barnette. This was Bee Oland Barnett (1904-1982) and he was also never married, they were brother and sister. Both were the children of Joseph Lee and Jane Elizabeth "Janie" Wofford Barnett. All were cousins of mine. Hope this helps.
