Thank you for your work. Can you please tell me if you can remember if there were any other Wards next to J. H. Ward #35689013 in Blanton Cemetery in Lebanon, SC.

Thank you,

Memorials 95267537 and 95267474
Hi Tonya,
I was wondering if you would transfer the memorials for Charlotte Lee Ball and William Bartholomew Ball to me unless you are in their direct line of descent. They are my GR GR GR grandparents and I would love to take over their memorials.

If you are in their direct line of descent and do not wish to transfer their memorials I ask you to reconsider the information you posted on Charlotte Lee Ball's memorial about her relationship to Robert E. Lee. I have done a lot of research on this family and have never seen any proof of a relationship with Robert E. Lee. If there is such a relationship, it could be they are cousins at some level but certainly not siblings. If you have proof I would be very interested in seeing it. There are several other researchers of this line and none have found the relationship.

Thank you for your time!!!

RE: Elizabeth Ann Giles Black
Hey Tonya,
I moved the picture, but I'm gonna have to disagree with you about it being 2 different people. The photo with the group of graves shows Eliz. Caldwell Black as footstone and Eliz. Ann Giles Caldwell Black as headstone. From what I can gather from ancestry Caldwell was her maiden name, not Giles. Like I said I moved the picture and will leave it up to you as to what you want to do with it. Good luck,Wimsang

Tonya, thank you so much for your contribution to others through Find A Grave. You are helping so many like me who, because of age and health can no longer visit cemeteries. I appreciate what you do and also that you are caretaker of memorials. I have been on my genealogy journey since the 1980's and am still trying to do all I can with my family files so that my descendants and others connected can see their heritage. I hope you won't mind my making copies of your photos for my family files. May God bless you for all you do for others.

William F. Seay # 31129648
He is the brother of my great grandfather John Robert Seay. His initial F. stands for Fox, not Francis. I wonder from where your "Francis" information came. His obituary states "William F." I find "Francis" nowhere in my research. His maternal grandmother was Unity FOX Carter.
I would be happy to maintain this site if it is agreeable with you.

I would be honored if you would transfer your memorial # 26985187 (Jessie Mae Myers Sandlin) to Howard (Kip) Carter (Find A Grave Contributor # 48482030). She was my mother's second oldest sister and I remember visiting her. I am in the process of trying to acquire each of my Myers relatives and have a virtual cemetery for the entire family.

Thank you ahead of time for everything.

Sorry about the duplicate. I promise I checked several times before I created it and just missed yours somehow. Mine will be deleted shortly.
I added a picture of his temporary marker from the funeral home to yours. I will remove that when a permanent marker is in place.

Thank you for memorializing him. He was a good "kid" from a special family.

eternal flame
I do not know margarete Hutchinson Burch or
Louisa Matilda Hutchinson DeShields. i tried to find them, but they aren't in South Carolina. What name do you pull them up by? Also, are you sure I added the flame or maybe someone copied it and is using it. Truly - I do not know these two Hutchinsons, or if I do it is by other names. Let me know how to access them.
