Bio and Links
I really got into family research after my Dad passed away in August of 2011. I wanted to know more about my family history and figured I had better get started while my Mom was still with me.

I enjoy walking through the cemeteries, taking pictures and adding them to this site. Sometimes in my walks through these cemeteries I'll see neglected and damaged markers, so I stop and take the time to clean them up the best I can and take a picture. Who knows, this might be the last picture taken before it is completely gone. A headstone will last a long time, but not forever.

I always take the time to get a picture of our veterans. Our Men and Women that have served and sacrificed for our Country to give us the freedoms that we have. They deserve our utmost respect and gratitude.

I work hard to get my information as accurate as possible, but I do make mistakes. When they are called to my attention or I find them I do the corrections.

I will be more than happy to transfer any of my non-family memorials to anyone who finds that I have entered one of their relatives. I feel that a family member can add so much more to a memorial than a non-family member. If you would like a transfer, please state your relationship with the person you would like transferred.

Please do not post a duplicate of a photo that is already in place. If there is a photo of the headstone, there does not need to be another, unless the one there is totally unreadable and yours can be read. Also remember that unsponsored memorials are limited to five pictures, so please make them worthwhile.

I applaud everyone for their additions to Find A Grave, especially the volunteer photographers. You guys do an awesome job and all the hard work is greatly appreciated by all of us.

Carlos Rutland
Hello. My name is Patricia Rutland Fentross. New to this site. Carlos Rutland was my great grandfather. Died in 1955. His son was Carlos S. Rutland and my father was Carlos Doyle Rutland. I just read your article about my great grandfather was actually born a Nettles and after his mother died shortly after birth that he was adopted by the Rutland's. If that's the case do you know why the father nettles didn't raise him? Just wondering because that means that I am actually a blood line Nettles instead of a Rutland. Any info you provide would be interesting. Thx so much.

I am not sure if we have ever met but in doing family research I came across this work you have done. I want to say like others thank you do much for working on this. My grandmother was Florence Lovern Driggers and I remember hearing her talk about Larry. I was surprised when I saw you were the one that posted the pic of my daddy's marker back in 2012, I assume since you are a Lovern that you remember him, that made me think about you were here close by and I never knew you were doing that. Do you live in Orangeburg? If so I know that's a 3 hour drive for you to come do that.

RE: Lovern and Lord Family
In order to make the connection between us, I need to know the line between you and your great grandfather.

His son (your grandfather), your father, then you.

You can send me a personal message through my email that is shown on my Find A Grave page.

Lovern Family

Brothers and sisters of your GRAND parents are your grand, or more commonly referred to as great uncles and aunts.

Brother and sisters of your Great Grandparents are your Great Grand uncles and aunts, again commonly referred to as great great.

This ain't easy. I see people who answer questions about relationships struggle with the concepts, so I don't feel bad when it causes me pain.


PS: Are you on Ancestry? I would have to look at your tree to figure out where/how we are related, after adding a few people to Family Tree Maker and letting it (FTM) show me the relationship.

Lovern and Lord Family

Wondering how you are related to Hattie Lovern? Susie Josephine Lord is my 2nd great grand aunt. Her parents are my 3rd great grandparents.

Somehow we are probably related. Would like to connect the dots.
