Duplicate memorial for Elizabeth Caroline Burgwin Clitherall
I call your attention to a memorial you added for ELIZABETH CAROLINE BURGWYN CLITHERAL (# 65042082). This memorial duplicates an earlier memorial for the same individual. I understand that you transferred management of this memorial but the present manager says she cannot delete it and that you are the only one who can. Therefore, I respectfully ask that you do so and eliminate confusion.

Thank you,

John Coffey

John Ward II(7 May 1715-9 Mar 1758) and his wife, Sarah Child Ward(1708-7 Mar 1760) were my late husband's 5th great-grandparents. I believe they are interred at St Phillip's Episcopal Chuch Cemetery, Charleston, SC, according the the church burial records of 1760. I wonder if any greavestone photos are available? Thank you.

I am researching my granddaughter's maternal line for her. She has ancestors Cecilia Fleischman (married jacob Gruenwald), born Stockerau Austria, whose parents were Emanual Fleischman and Teresa Ehrlich.

I see you have posted some Fleischmans buried in the Jewish Cemetery in Stockerau, and was wondering if you have any more information on them.

I appreciate any information you can give me-

Mary Anderson

I couldn't find too much more information but I did add a little to the memorial.

English Family Cemetery (Avery)
I've located more specific details on the location of this cemetery and a third party contact of someone who's been there. Now to pin down the exact location. We're getting there, slowly but surely.

RE: Charles Berners Jenkins
Dear Mary,
Thank you so much for all the info. I have just ordered "A Place Called St. John's".

I have a copy of the Jenkins family tree compiled for C. Bissell Jenkins with research by Mabel Webber. It is hard to read being handwritten in the shape of a semi-circle and many places things are blurred. In fact, Charles Berners's middle name is blurred and I thank you for the correct spelling. I checked it to see if there were dates for John William and Elizabeth Emily Sams Jenkins and there were none for either. It is very clear on the chart that John William is indeed Charles Berners's father, not William Reynolds so thank you before I get confused reading the book.

I hope you don't mind my asking some other questions. I have read that John William was a doctor and then in other places that he was a planter. Was he both? Also, what does "precious fall" refer to?

Thanks again,
Your cousin, Laura

Charles Berners Jenkins
Dear Mary,
I am a brand new member of Findagrave and I was so excited to find info about my great grandfather, Charles Berners Jenkins that you submitted! I was born and have always lived in Charleston and I am a member of the First Families of SC, the DAR, and I am working on my blue papers for the Colonial Dames so I have lots of info I can share with you and others. All of these are through my Seabrook side. My daddy was Oliver Hart Jenkins, his father was Charles Walter Jenkins married to Julia Laura Seabrook. I have recently begun working on my Jenkins side.
Could you tell me your source about Charles Berners Jenkins being in Co. I of the 3rd Cavalry Regiment and his being captured in Pocataligo, etc. I would love to know which Battle he was in and when he was exchanged as a prisoner.
Also is there any more you know about him farming at Walnut Hill.? As a child my Daddy took me there to visit family and I still have cousins who live there.
Thank you for any info you can share,
Your "cousin" Laura Seabrook Jenkins Thompson

RE: English Family Cem.—Avery
Pyatte, Martha A. 1975. Lest we forget: an index to Avery County cemeteries. Rowland, N.C.: Pyatte.

I'll do some more digging, so to speak, and see if I can't narrow down where this cemetery is. Frank Phillips, or one of his business concerns, owned/owns a lot of land between Spruce Pine and Ingalls. . . and elsewhere, too.

English Family Cem.—Avery
I am presuming you created this cemetery in Avery Co., NC since the only two memorials there are yours.

Can you describe in a little better detail where this cemetery is located? Near the highway? Deep in the woods? I'm pretty familiar with the area but I can't seem to locate the Englishes. There's one on the left side of the river but right of 19E that has English family in it, but not Daniel and his wife and it's listed as Phillips Cemetery between Ingalls and Spear (north of your description).

Any assistance would be appreciated and I'll get out there for photos and mapping.

RE: Mary Anastasia Hogan Fogarty
Cousin Mary, Great to hear from you especially because we ( wife and I) got to know your parents fairly well. In fact, I have great past memories of visiting them at Sylvan Shores and Mt. Pleasant while on our way home from Fla.
I am flying to Charleston tomorrow with my three
married daughters (husbands get to stay home!).We will do the usual tourist stuff focusing on "South of Broad" But I will be able to show them Simon's 90 Broad St. site and the relocated 8 Court House Sq. to provide a distant personal touch.
I suspect we each may have some additional family history to share. May I suggest we move any future correspondence to email; I've become somewhat paranoid about privacy and possible identity theft after an unpleasant family experience. I believe
you do have my email address.
I'll be in touch when we get back from

Mary Anastasia Hogan Fogarty
Mary, Everything appears to indicate that we also are distantly related. Anastasia was my GG Grandmother. Her daughter, Elizabeth (Eliza)married John Butler in Charleston. Their only child, Ellen (Ellie) was born in Union, SC in 1864 but was raised in Charleston. She married John Purcell in Charleston in 1884 and moved North with him. My Mother, Elizabeth Purcell Meany was one of twelve children of their marriage. I have a collection of various bits of info on the Fogartys mostly originating from family members in Charleston which I would be pleased to share. You can reach me at;
Best wishes . Jack Meany

RE: James Thomas
Thanks Mary, I always hate to tell someone about a duplicate because they worked hard to find and initiate it. I got a similar one this morning too.
Good luck to you.

RE: Clara (Buzzard) Nelson
Clara was born in February of 1881 according to
Her mother Caroline (Kercher) Buzzard Stauffer is here:
Find A Grave Memorial# 79895487

She was one of 7 children.
Anna Buzzard B: 1877
Walter Buzzard B: 1879
Clara Buzzard B: 1881
Elnora Buzzard B: 1881
Maud Buzzard B: 1885
Florence Buzzard B: 1890
Carrie Buzzard B: 1891

At the time of Caroline's death in 1927, there were 5 surviving children as you can see in Caroline's bio.

Caroline was the sister of my great great grandmother Catharine Kercher Smith. I have some obituaries and families photos which I have posted on find a grave. My mother and I will see if we can find any other info for you.

Do you have access to

I do believe I am your cousin. My great grandmother was Bertha Devereux and I believe her sister married a Powers. I did receive a large bunch of information; maybe form you, a number of years ago.

I am wondering about which "MEN OF MARK IN SOUTH CAROLINA" has the extended version of what you included on Nicholas Devereuxs page. I assume, or hope, that there is more information than what was included.

Thanks Mary for letting me know the relationship of Sarah to her step son Stephen Elliott. Would you happen to know where Sarah is buried?

Anastasia & Simon Fogarty
Mary, can I ask how you are related to Anastasia Fogarty (1798-1870) and Simon P Fogarty (1842-1914)? My wife (Amy Fogarty McCleary)is her G-G-Grand daughter and his G-Grand daughter. We would love to know if there is a relationship between you two. Do you have a Ancestry account? We all have copies of the original painting done of his mother Anastasia in our homes, and I could send you a copy for your Find A Grave account if you wanted.

RE: charles b jenkins
One of the issues is that there at have been two Charles B Jenkins in Rebel Troops.

Was hoping this might be your family line and that you'd know where gravestone might be. Because it looks flat to the ground in the picture, I'm wondering if it may have been covered by leaves. I'll keep looking.

Mary, I am trying to physically locate this stone at St Johns Epis on Johns Island. Would you email me so we can discuss?

I too descend from Jenkins and many other LowCountry lines but am trying to prove which CBJ this was as far as military records.

RE: Joseph Atkinson
I neglected to mention as well - Jeremiah Atmar Yates's mother, Sarah Atmar, was the daughter of Ralph Atmar and Elizabeth Freer. Elizabeth Freer's parents were Sarah Legare (b c. 1695) and Solomon Freer. Sarah Legare's brother was Francois Solomon Legare (1703-1774 - my Gx7 G-pa) and he was the father of Solomon Legare who I mentioned on my last message (Solomon Legare was the father of Elizabeth Legare who was the grandmother of Harriet and Mary - one of your Great G-ma's.)

RE: Joseph Atkinson
Hello again! :o] Yes, it does sound as though we're related. jeremiah's page on Geni is at and I'm the manager of his page there. His parents were Joseph Yates Sr (who was apparently a ship's carpenter)and Sarah Atmar. After Joseph's death she married John Rogers. Joseph and Sarah definitely had Joseph Yates Jr. and Jeremiah Atmar Yates, but I've found mixed sources about them having a daughter named Sarah Yates as well (who married Bethel Threadcraft). I've found more in favor of her being their daughter than not, but admit I've not found solid source evidence confirming that she truly was their daughter and not someone else's. On my tree also are Elizabeth Legare (my Gx5 G-ma) and her father, Solomon Legare (my Gx6 G-pa). I show that Elizabeth was Harriet Angeronia Air's grandmother (the mother of James - Harriet's father) so we might have a blood link as well as a marriage link in our trees. Do you have a tree on Geni? If you join (a basic membership is free) feel free to reach me via Jeremiah's page link shown above and I can send you an invite to view our tree that way, or if you have a tree there we can merge them via our common ancestor (Mary Eugenia Air and her sister, Harriet) and then you would have full visibility to my tree there. I just created a page for Mary at, so if you build a tree from you to her we could then merge the two pages for her. My personal email is if you wnat to email me directly. :o]

P.S. You and I might be distant relatives somehow. I'm a "Yates" by birth but have many of the Charleston families on my tree as well. I live in Seattle, but my dad's "Yates" line is from Charleston. Jeremiah (mem# 67745925) is my GGGG Grandfather. His dad, Joseph Yates Sr., was a Revolutionary War soldier there. My family tree is on :o]

If you click on the photo of each death notice I listed the source info. I'm very fortunate in that my local public library has free access to America's Geneaology Bank, as it's a subscription based service to the general public. If you ever want or need someone looked up for an obit or death notice in it, please don't hesitate to ask. I'm very happy to assist. :o]
