RE: James Pickens
You are welcome. It was a beautiful, sunny afternoon and I enjoyed the walk in the sunshine!

RE: James Pickens
As you will see, I found James' mother. She is in the middle of Section 20 and he is at the edge of Section 19. They are about 200 yards apart. Her stone is hard to see, if you don't know where to look. Plus, the cemetery has her located in the wrong lot. Her stone is a small one and there is a big family marker right is front of it. So you either have to stand on her grave and read it upside down (the stone is at her feet), or stand in front of the family marker and look down behind it. I actually happened to find it accidently, just looking around. I had a worker from the cemetery helping me, but we were looking in the lot where the office said she is buried. That space is vacant, so I assumed that the grave was unmarked. Then I just happened across her marker. Anyway, glad I could be of help.

RE: James Pickens
First, you are welcome for the picture. Second, it is kind of near the mausoleum, but not really. The grave is several sections down from the main mausoleum. There is a small, personal family mausoleum next to Mr. Pickens, but it is not the main cemetery mausoleum. And, it is kind of near his mother, but not really. Mr. Pickens is in Section 19, Lot 37, Space 2. Mrs. Pickens is in Section 20, Lot 307, Space 1. The sections are right next to each other, but I don't yet know how close together they are. There are no "marked" Pickens' near Mr. Pickens, because I looked. However, I will be b ack at the cemetery today and will try again to find mrs. Pickens - if it is marked.

Hi Patty,
The flowers were very pretty. It was a nice sight to see.
I'm happy to have been able to take the photo for you.

Graceland cemetery
There are two Graceland cemeteries currently listed in Greenville County. In 1928 the only one that existed was Graceland West on White Horse Road. It's a fairly large cemetery.

I know the historical society has issued several volumes that contain burial information. If I were you, I would go ahead and add a memorial for your grandmother. It may just be that no one has come across her marker while walking the cemetery.
