Bio and Links
Bio Photo 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.

Hugh Gibson
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.

RE: Delete note with flowers/cross
Suzanne, It worked! Thank you for the tip. Yes, I am related to Andy. His dad and I are second cousins. Andy and his mother, Linda, were so helpful and personable in my quest to connect with the Carmichael family tree. This experience has made me feel complete. God bless you all, Kathleen.

Delete note with flowers/cross
Hi Suzanne, Your work on findagrave, specifically the Carmichael family, has been a tremendous healing blessing for me. I located my biological father and thus, connected with a family I never knew for over 60 years. Thank you so much. I was attempting to post a note on my great-father's memorial and erroneously posted it on my grandfather's, Laban Carmichael #78835970. Could you please delete that note, if possible? With appreciation, Kathleen (Carmichael) Mendias.

Dr. R.M. Potts
I wrote a book, Inherit the Land: Jim Crow Meets Miss Maggie's Will, that includes Dr. Potts. He delivered a baby in the home of Maggie and Sallie Ross around 1905 and was paid a $2 gold piece. At one point, I talked to a family member who said they still have the gold piece, but I lost their contact information. I would love to locate the piece and get to see it.

Gilbert Price #60280265
Suzanne,
The name of John Richard Price has been incorrectly added to the family of Gilbert Price, his parents and siblings. There are several researchers that are diligently working to find the true parents of John Richard Price and this addition to this family leads researchers to incorrect conclusions. John Richard Price is my husband's great grandfather. Please remove this name from this memorial unless you can provide proof.

Mary Isabella Caskey McGuirt
Suzzanne,

Evidently we have some family branches around the Lancaster-Chesterfield County areas of SC (Threatt, Caskey, McGuirt, Etc.) I currently live in Wilmington, NC.

Suzzane:

The marker for Mary Isabella Caskey McGuirt (find-a-grave # 81664607) has already been posted on Van Wyck under Mary Isabel Plyler (find-a-grave# 79416947). If you look at Mary Isabel Plyler's headstone carefully, you will find both husbands listed-Dock H. Plyler and I. A. McGuirt. It's just a matter of linking that one with Isom Alexander McGuirt, and that should take care of it.

Thank you for your help.

James Houston
Hi Suzanne,

Your memorial for James Houston (# 21765277) has him linked to John and Margaret Cunningham Houston, but records indicate that their son James, who was their eldest and born in about 1718, stayed behind in Ireland when the rest of the family immigrated and he died in about 1740. This James couldn't possibly be their child.
