Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am an 8th generation Durr from South Carolina. My family roots grow very deep into the soil of Orangeburg, Dorchester, Colleton, Berkeley and Barnwell counties.

I've researched and traveled across the Lowcountry part of the state to where my ancestors settled, to dig into musty courthouse bins, rooted through libraries, and traipse cemeteries.

Even after many years of research, I am awed when I look at the old family tombstones, bible, land plats, Last Will and Testaments and keepsake pictures with so many lineages and thinking of the forklore of many generations past touches my heart.

Some of the families I research are; Durr, Ruple, Bell, Keitt,Salisbury, Murray, Weathers, Whetsell, Miller, Ayers, Way, Beach, Bozard, Strock, Dukes and Johnson.

THANK YOU!!! I have literally just learned that she is part of my family. I am so excited as I am making strides to obtaining the names of my Great Great Grandparents! Just need the documentation to prove it! You are very thoughtful! Thanks again! Blessings~

It was more than generous of you to transfer all those McMaster memorials to me! However, I did not receive those of great-grandparents, James Fleming and Christine Gooding McMaster.

Thank you,

Good afternoon,

I am wondering whether you would consider transferring management of my great-grandparents memorials, James Fleming McMaster (54978852) and Tirzah Christine Gooding McMaster (54978845)?

My mother's sister is Jeannette Mann, #72891356. Would you consider transferring her memorial to me so that I can connect her to the rest of her family? Thank you for your consideration!

Herman, thank you much for the transfer of Timothy and Isabella's menorials to me. You did a great job of maintaining them for which I'm so apperciative.

Thank you
Thank you Mr. Durr for taking the photo of my great-great grandmothers tombstone. You have added another piece of the puzzle of my South Carolina family where my roots run very deep. I live in the North (grew up in Washington DC) and don't have much of a chance to come down to SC where my ancestors lived. I only have a picture of her daughter Beulah but none of her. It's good to know her headstone is in such great shape. Thank you, your contributions mean a lot to those who are actively putting together our family trees!! :) God Bless you!
