The Howards
Thanks for looking for the graves. Few cemeteries have accurate records that far back. The Howards died within a few days of each other and left several small children. I doubt if there was any money for stones.

Turpins at Christ Episcopal Church
You're back! Thank you for taking the photos for me. I know that they are challenge. I am working on a new application and need proof for the DAR and they are strict in their requirements. The Turpin line has not been documented for the DAR. It's always a challenge. I appreciate your time and help. I hope that all is well with you. Grateful for you,

Can you please delete the picture you added? It is the wrong marker. Thank you

Mismatched photos
Your photos on memorials 8230612 and 8230614 are backwards. Barbara's photo is on Michael's memorial and vice versa.

Joseph Turpin
Charlie, I have lost a Turpin. I think that he is with the others in Christ Episcopal. Maybe he has a plot or the marker is illegible. His wife is there: Hannah Turpin. Please, can you help?
Joseph TURPIN was born in 1750 in Providence County, Rhode Island. He married Hannah CASKINS in May 1772 in Charleston, South Carolina. They had four children during their marriage. He died on July 4, 1784, in Charleston County, South Carolina, at the age of 34. I wonder if he was in an accident.

Thank you

A Correction from Rocky Bottom.

Rocky Bottom, Sept. 15, 1906. -

Please give me just a little space in your valuable paper to correct an error seen in the Sentinel-Journals' last issue.

There has been quite a mistake in the burial of Mrs. Abigail Chappell. She was certainly buried at Rocky Bottom Baptist church. I was there and alid off the grave and helped dig it. Got the head and foot stones. As to the age of Mrs. Chappell I have no information to be positive, but I and some of her children made accounts as best as was known, 102 years.

Re. L.L. Powell conducted the funeral services of Mrs. Chappell instead of Re. J.E. Galloway, of Toxaway, N.C.
