|Bio and Links|
I was a senior at Clemson (circa 2007) when I randomly created an Ancestry.com account. That's when I discovered that although a few names did come to me, for the most part I didn't know the names of my own great-grandparents. Especially mom's side. The great-aunts and uncles were also a total loss. (At the time trees for more recent generations were not turning up on Ancestry.com or internet searches). Fast forward about 5 years and I've discovered so much and learn more every day. I'm also finding that investigating a random tangent often pays off later when you least expect it!|
Using this site as part of my research of my ancestors, specifically my direct line.
With very few exceptions all parts of my family seem to have lived in South Carolina for a VERY long time. (There are of course a few NC and GA sprinkled in).
I hope to meet some distant relatives!
Above all things I love old family photos. It is my sincerest hope that as long-separated family branches are reunited, treasured family photos can be shared with all descendants.
- Ford -
- Todd -
- Potts -
- Threatt -
If any of these names/combos look familiar contact me and we can compare! Maybe we are relatives! :)
I am currently living in southeastern NC.
*I have added some burial unknown entries. I will delete my entries when someone finds the cemeteries and posts! Just let me know. :)

I believe I have found some old yearbook photos (from Limestone), of Marie Pigott. Her education entry in the 1940 census was 4 years of college, and underneath the senior photo of the woman, it says she is from Jefferson, SC. Could you confirm if these are of Marie?
1937 Limestone College: Marie Johnson (Junior):
1938 Limestone College: Marie Johnson (Senior):
Sorry for any inconvenience.

Suzanne, Although I've been a member for some time, I've never sent messages. Is there a way to send you a private message? - VeeHistory@gmail.com
|Vicki Hamlin Warner||Elvington - Ford - OOPS!|
Suzanne, On my former post I mistakenly referred to *Bill* Ford as Boyd Ford Jr. Please excuse! There is no Boyd Ford Jr. Mr. Boyd Ford had a son named William Asbury Ford, familiarly called Bill. He is the nice gentleman who showed me the small Elvington cemetery which I wrote about before.

Suzanne, I have been to that small Elvington cemetery in a field behind Boyd Ford Jr's house at Spring Branch. Sadly, Boyd is now deceased. I don't know who is living in that house now, but it was originally Arrena Bullock's and Mouzon Elvington's. Their daughter, Zonnie Moss Elvington inherited it, then she married Boyd Ford, Sr. so it became known as the Ford house.
I visited Spring Branch Baptist Church the same day as I went to the Fords', and THINK the Fords lived on the same road as the church. Could be wrong. But this might be enough information so you can now find it.
Is there any way we could chat on the phone? I live in Horry County, maybe not so far from you.
Thanks for all your good work on Find A Grave!
Or at least tried to.

A completed your photo request for Richard Casale. He is with his wife Leola Lee Casale. Also, next to him is Gary Richard Casale and Gail Evelyn Casale. A cursory ancestry check determined that Gail Evelyn is the daughter of Richard and Lee Casale. She has the same birthday as Gary Richard and both were born in FL. Although it appears probable that Gary Richard and Gail Evelyn are twins I could not make that definite connection, so I did not link Gary to Richard and Lee. There were no memorials for Gary and Gail, so I created them and transferred them to you. You can add Gary as the child of Richard and Lee. I am fairly confident that is the case, but I will let you be the finale arbitrator. Double click the larger headstone photos for location information.

I have been all over the Warren Cemetery to find Hugh Gibson, husband to Lillian, there isn't a Huge Gibson. I did find a headstone on William E. Gibson, he is buried next to Lillian Gibson. There is a photo already put into William's memorial. Look up William Gibson in Find A Grave. William and Hugh are the same person.
