370 Known cemeteries (in Horry County, within and outside the city limits
249 have been Inventoried
210 have been included in the Horry County Historic Cemetery Registration Project.

The project consists of surveying the entire cemetery by photographing and gps'ing each gravesite. This information is gathered to prevent encroachment from development. All survey information is posted on the Horry County Government website. Photos are also posted to findagrave. Hopefully our efforts will help others researching their ancestors and who want to visit the final resting places of their family members. If you would like to use any of our stone photos we have taken you are welcome to do so.

“There are three deaths. The first is when the body ceases to function. The second is when the body is consigned to the grave. The third is that moment, sometime in the future, when your name is spoken for the last time.” - David Eagleman

The Grand Strand Genealogy Club held in Chapin Library, Myrtle Beach, SC, meets 2nd Saturday of the month, 10:30 am 1st floor conference room.

RESEARCHING: Rogerson, Clemons, Godwin, Porter, Wiehrs, Asendorf, Wittschen, White, Lancaster, Tarver, Partridge. Husband's side: Perhala, Zima, Kuchta.

My personal belief: "To each of you reading this, if you are a cemetery walker, then God Bless for your energy. And if you document your findings with photos or entries on, God Bless again and I'm grateful for your work done and your future efforts. Each grave contains someone's loved one who has passed away. Each life had meaning and still influences those left behind. We carry our loved ones in our hearts even after they are gone from this earth."
Susan Rogerson Perhala

spray water may help, sometimes in combination with a soft toothbrush. Sometimes I put the toothbrush into the dirt beside the stone, using the dirt like nature's ink, and rub the toothbrush (dirt and all) across the inscription/dates. Too much water and you get nothing. Another option is to use aluminum foil on the stone surface. Enough foil to wrap around the corners of the stone. Use soft toothbrush to brush across the foil and get an impression of what's on the stone. Remove the foil and take it to a shaded place to read the impression.

RE: 137534294
Hi Susan,
I don't think you should delete your memorial for John Neville. In addition to your memorial and the one you mentioned, I also found a third on at Memorial# 44735810. However, a search for him by name does not bring up all three memorials. I think this is just a unique situation where his marble memorial is located at the current location of Nevils Creek Primitive Baptist Church.

According to what I heard from church members this past week, the church is currently in it's third location. The original location of the church is apparently where John Neville and his wife are buried. The third memorial I shared above includes a timeline of John Neville's life, including that he donated the land for the original church location.

To do it right, all three of the memorials need to be merged, because each has helpful information.

RE: 138835950 John Neville
Hi Susan,
No worries. John Neville is my 7th great grandfather. I went to visit, clean the stone, take some photos, and pay my respects.

I am requesting that this Memorial be transferred to me. This is my aunt and I want to turn it over to her daughter.

Susan: Thank you for posting the edits, wonderful tribute you made to Dr. I got involved thru his sister Blanche, who marred 2nd to Rev. William Neely Ross the brother of Maj. Gen. Ogden J. Ross 1893-1968. My father served under Ogden and always spoke highly of him. I researched Ogden as a tribute to my father. I maintain his Find A Grave memorial and have cleaned the family stones at Oakwood Cemetery, Troy, NY where I was from. It has been an interesting trip connecting the dots. A number of edits to other family members are in the hopper. All the best. Bill Preston now of Saratoga, NY
