We emailed each another back in fall of 1999 & march 9, 2000 about Simon West (b) 11/7/1784 (d) 3/21/1857
& who was his father. He is my great,great,grand grandfather. I noticed that you have post pictures of cemetery headstones on this site. Well I found found out the S.C. Dept. of Archives & History that his father is indeed the son of Joseph West & Mary Offutt. So I guess that means that means we are cousins.

I see my story from FB has been posted ( :) Thanks!). What was posted below about John Hunter is all I really know and some of it is just stories told. I know where he was buried and my family will be placing a marker soon and I wanted to find out more about John's biological family before we have his marker made. Thanks for any leads, tidbits, etc!

John Hunter buried Hopewell Missionary Baptist Church
Renita Cooper Allen is looking for John Hunter--this article is on facebook under REnita name and Random Acts of Genealogical Kindness - RAOGK USA

I don't have a lot of details to go on but here's something I need some help with: I am looking for John HUNTER, born in Union County SC died in Laurens County SC around 1964. He was buried in Hopewell Missionary Baptist Church, Laurens SC. He came to live with Dr. George Moore and his family as a child (approx 12). John was black and the Moores were white. the story is the Hunters weren't able to care for all of their children. another story is John's mother worked for Dr. Moore and she died so Dr. Moore took care of him. I do know that the Moore's built John a house and after the Moore's died out, extended family members took care of John until his health deteriorated and he had to have more extensive care until his death. I am requesting help finding his parent's names and his birthdate. John made straw brooms and sold them to support himself as an adult.

RE: 43186263 Camden Brown
Both of Camden's parents are still living. His mother has seen my post on our other relatives pages and approved of me adding Camden. Since you have his site, I was simply asking permission to use his Find A Grave ID in my posts, as there is no one to link him to.

Record Hunter
Hello again. Due to circumstances beyond my controll Findagrave has threatened to block my memorials and cancel my membership if I continue to scan obits, SO I have begun rewriting all the obits and adding them to the obit section. Findagrave has begun deleting all my scanned obits, SO would you mind deleting the obit from memorial:

Created by: Record Hunter
Record added: Aug 15, 2011
Find A Grave Memorial# 74982655

Thanks and regard.

P. S. If you want to send the obits to me, you wish to post, I will, or you can, rewrite them and I will be more than glad to post to the bio section and give you credit, again thanks.

Lela Ann Painter Wilson's Memorial
I could take over management of this memorial, if you are willing. She is my great-aunt, the older sister of my paternal grandmother Mary Louise "Mollie" Painter Searcy. There were six children born to William Gainer Painter and Martha Minerva Ann Steadman Painter--Lela, Calvin McKinney "Kinney" Painter (C. M. Painter on his headstone at Landrum Cemetery), William M. Painter, my grandmother Mary, Harvey Calhoun Painter, and King David Isam Painter (K. D. I. Painter on his headstone at Landrum Cemetery). There were no half-siblings. My father's middle name, Isam, came from his mother's youngest brother. It was apparently rather common for the Painters and/or Steadmans to name their children after relatives. The second child ("Kinney") got his middle name of McKinney from his maternal grandfather, McKinney Steadman. My grandmother Mary named her two daughters after her mother (MARTHA Mamie Lee Searcy Jones, my Aunt Mamie); and her sister Lela and herself (MARY LELA Mae Searcy Pruitt, my Aunt Lela Mae). Her son William (my Uncle Bill) was named after her father and brother (WILLIAM G. Painter and WILLIAM M. Painter). And William M. Painter's daughters also got part of their full names from family (MARY LELA Annabelle Painter Calvert, called "Annabelle"; and MATTIE Eulalia Painter Williams Byrd, called "Eulalia").

Elizabeth Dalton
#37062810, she has the name of one I'm looking for, her birth on Find A Grave is unknown, & Death 12-10-1889. I was hoping this is the one I'm searching for, but the death date I'm looking for is 12-3-1886, the day she died giving birth & her birth was ca 1867 in Patrick Co. to William Waller Bowling & Nancy J. Bowling. I tried enlarging the tombstone & it does look like 1889. It could be the one I'm searching for, her husband was Wm.H. Dalton & I can't find him either. My info could be wrong.

Find A Grave #32142787 is a duplicate of #23293469. One of you should delete your entry or combine them.

incorrect dates
In regard to the parents in Memorial# 43098514. I believe you have the birth of the parents nearly a hundred years too late.

I attempted to send this privately to your email, but it was rejected. So, would you mind removing one photo entry from this memorial so that a photo of the gentleman can be added? I suggest the blue colored one which has very little real
information other than the man died. Thank you.

Leigh, do you know where Nancy Jane Arnold-Rogers is buried? Just curious. I don't think I have ever heard. My Grandpa David was raised by her and always said he could not have been raised by a finer woman.

# 35488923 First name is May, not Mary
The first name is incorrect for "Mary" Greene Snow (F.A.G. # 35488923). Her first name is "May" per tombstone.

I have noticed while posting pictures of the grave stones that a lot of the memorials have been duplicated. They are not duplicated by you but someone else. I have also researched some of the names etc and trying to edit as I go along.
So I thought you might want to post this information to 2 of your posts. The name Agnes is misspelled on the Family Search and also on the memorial so I have edited the name Agnes from Agmes on your post.
Thanks for all you do to make Find A Grave and great site.
