RE: Hester Beardsley
Thanks so much John! Feel free to join our little Westchester Facebook group for findagrave. We had an interesting discussion about these two cemeteries.

Eliza Hayne
Circular Church in Charleston

Thanks so much for letting me know about Eliza
Hayne's marker being in the wrong cemetery.
Made me review everything I'd put in Magnolia Cemetery. Reviewed all and didn't find any others.
Oddly I don't remember taking any pictures in the "tourist areas" of Charleston the one day I was there. Again thanks for letting me know. I deleted my memorial. There was already one in Circular Church in Charleston.

RE: vanderhorst cementery
Thanks. I've asked, looked at old maps, driven up and down roads and been unable to find the cemetery or even Dixie Plantation Road.

In 1800 the Shankelfords lived at Buck Hall Plantation which was near Buck Hall Landing Road about 5 miles south of McClellanville. In about 1818 General Vanderhorsts had a plat drawn of of Indian Field Plantation which was very near the South Santee River north of McClellansville. I think the Vanderhorsts's son Arthur was buried in the cemetery in 1842.

The SCHM paper I referred to said the cemetery was on the Buck Hall Plantation. One old map I have shows a one acre cemetery on the old plantation, but at the time the map was made in the early 1900s the cemetery was in the forest, and not along a road.

Any suggestions will be appreciated.

vanderhorst cementery
I suspect that this is the cemetery discussed in Richard Shackelford's article "Tombstone Inscriptions from Buck Hall Plantation, St. James Santee, Formerly Owned by Richard Shackelford" in the South Carolina Historical and Genealogical Magazine, July, 1939, p. 114.

I just spent several hours looking for this cemetery--without luck. No one seems to know where Dixie Farms Plantation Road is, nor where the cemetery is. Can anyone help me with a better description?

Jessie Holliday Dana
Hi, I was reading your page on Jessie Holliday Dana with interest, as she is one of my ancestors via her mother, Elizabeth Matilda Denman. Looking through the names of people buried in Newtown Cemetery (on the Find A Grave website) I found a photo of the grave marker of 'J Danna' and wondered if this might be Jessie? The names are so similar. Many thanks, Liz Jones

I'm not sure what that entails, but, yes I would like to have Papa's page transferred to me. Do you also have my mother's page, Darlene Keller?

Thanks for all the work you have done!

My ancestor, Joseph RIGHTON,who is buried at the Circular Congregational Church in Charleston, had no middle name. He and his father were coopers and had a shop down on one of the wharves. I think many people on have added Cooper as a middle name because of a transcription error in a Charleston City Directory. Thanks in advance for correcting it! Catherine Robertson

I forwarded you an edit request to link Fannie E. Leverette Ball to her husband Willis M. Ball. If you have not already actioned that edit PLEASE IGNORE IT or refuse it.
I have since discovered FELB had an existing memorial under the name Onie Ball, can you believe it? I am in the process of having the memorial I created to FELB deleted.
Anyway, I do appreciated you cooperation on this.

I have submitted a correction for this memorial and wanted to explain why.

I have requested that Ann Caroline Cobia LaFar be removed as a wife. She is his mother-in-law.

Louisa M LaFar Mollenhauer is correct. Ann Caroline is her mother.

Could you please take a look at Memorial# 146352607, and consider having these merged into one? I assume they are in fact duplicates. The one from Rosehill includes a photo. Thanks very much.

RE: Jacob Wolf's bio
My mistake—I was reading the memorial page on a very small screen. The new bio is indeed at the bottom. It begins with: Jacob Wolf was born 7 June 1817 at "Hechingen, Hohenzollern, Germany" (now Baden-Württemberg, Germany), the son of Abraham and Jeanette Wolf.
It ends with: For his second wife's maiden name, see "New York, New York City Marriage Records, 1829–1940," database, _FamilySearch_ (, Jacob Wolf and R. Burgheins [_sic_], 24 September 1857; citing New York City, New York, Register of Marriages 2: [page unknown], 1857 September 24, Wolf-Burgheim; New York City Municipal Archives, New York; FHL microfilm 1,671,673.

Thank you so much for your amazingly quick response! I'm just getting into this, having just retired, but am caught up in genealogy as my mother was!

Thanks again!

Memorial 74290563 - David A. Webster
I am the son of Rear Admiral David A. Webster (74290563) who is buried at the Naval Academy. I would like to have his memorial page transferred to me and I understand that I need to ask you to perform that action. I would like to update his page to include his actual obituary and any other relevant items. There are errors on the page as it stands now.

I'm not sure how a transfer is actually done, as this is the first time I have asked about this.

Can you help?

In re: Lynch Prioleau Huger (1846-1909)
I know you have him in The Bronx, but today I found this: Find A Grave Memorial# 39458882

As it shows a gravestone, I presume you were extrapolating in listing him in The Bronx. I am trying to work out how this made more sense...

Thank you for your work!
