Bio and Links
Bio Photo I live currently in Horry County, SC but have lived in many different places. I have always loved hearing about days gone by. I want to make sure the legends and tales and stories live on in my family. As families scatter to the 4 corners it seems more important than ever to have reminders of where we came from. I became interested in wandering through old cemeteries in Worthington, OH, we lived very near an old cemetery there. I daydream about the lives belonging to those old markers, pray over them and sometimes cry. Some things make me laugh too, I love it when an old marker has a bottle of Jack proped against it, or maybe a seashell or other sweet trinket.
I have been working on our family's history for over 20 years, it's like a great big puzzle fitting all the pieces together.
I have several mysteries, that I hope to solve. I'm guessing a lot of you do too or you wouldn't be on Find a Grave. Maybe we can help each other.
Live Well!

RE: Daniel Family Cemtery
Hi Kay,
You can post the photos directly to the memorials in the Daniel Cemetery. I don't see any need to put in photo request, it just complicates the process. In response to the question of how we might be related, I too would like to know how we are related. My family originated from the Daniel Family in Danieltown Virginia. I am descended from the line of Joseph Daniel - Peter Daniel - Moses Pryor Daniel - Peter Henry Daniel - Ernest Henry Daniel - James Kayton Daniel (father). (See URL: You may wonder why my name has an "s" on the end of the name. That is another long story and if you would like to send me your e-mail address to my e-mail account, I would send you much more information.

RE: Daniel Family Cemetery
Hi Kay,

How nice to find a Daniel family relative! Shepherd Lee and Phoebe Jane are my great grandparents, Thomas Franklin and Lorena Belle are my grandparents. Benjamin and Thomas were brothers, I think, so you and I are some degree of cousin...not sure at this moment. :) Thank you so much for your offer to put photos of headstones on the Find A Grave site and I would appreciate that very much! I haven't been able to go to that area for many years, so am very much looking forward to seeing the photos. Thank you again!

Thank you so much for the photo, even tho someone else had already taken one for me the inscription showed up better on yours and I saw it was because you took it at a different time of day.
Thanks again,

Thank you so much for your efforts and for the notes. I feel confident that C.M. Soles and his wife Sarah are the ones whose marker photos I requested and you took so please do post them. Thanks again.
