Scanned obit
Sorry to bother you but you posted a scanned obit to Annie Lois Fisher Edgins memorial #49708393. Please see the following:

Question: Can we scan obituaries and death certificates to memorials?

Answer: Partially correct. Obit scans are not allowed. Death certificates are allowed, though not considered optimal. Original grave photos are what the website is looking for. Transcribe any found obit into the bio text area.

So in accordance with Findagrave Rules, please remove it, thanks and regards.

Findagrave has sent me a notice stating that if I do not follow the rules they can block my memorials from me and revoke my membership. So, in accordance with Findagrave Rules, please remove scanned obituary. If you rewrite the obituary, not verbatim and not listing any living individuals, you can post it to the bio section via the edit tab and I will post it, thanks and regards.

RE: Keaton ancestry
Hi Peggy, I was afraid of that. Georgia birth records are maintained by the county and since we don't know what county he was born in, we're out of luck there. I wonder if I ordered a copy of his death certificate from Columbia, SC, if it might reveal who his parents were -- or have you already tried that? BTW, I grew up in Seneca but live in Atlanta.

Keaton ancestry
Hi Peggy,

John Keaton as my great, grandfather. My grandfather was his son Wilburn who was married to Louise Redmond, daughter of infamous Major Lewis Redmond. I am trying to find out who John Keaton's parents were so that I can continue my quest but so far nothing is listed anywhere I have looked. He apparently was born in Georgia about 1835. Any advice you can offer will be much appreciated.

Thanks for adding the obit. No, the order for the pictures is fine. I'd actually rather the obit be first. Thanks again. LATER

RE: Dollie Ann Garrett
I'm a descendant of James Brooks sister Nancy who married Robert Manley. Robert Manley and James Brooks were neighbors in 1860. They both joined Orr's Rifles in the Civil War. James was killed at Spotsylvania and Robert deserted after that battle, was captured and sent to Elmira Prison.
I just learned that James and Nancy Brooks mother Elizabeth was a Coates. I looked at Coates in SC and also found a book that extracts names from various documents. Abbeville county, SC probate records show a Nancy Coates Brooks, a Margaret Coates Gordon and an Elizabeth Coates Brooks. I suspected the three were sisters. I found John Coates I believe to be at least Margaret's father since they were neighbors in a census. Then I checked the Public Member Trees on ancestry and learned that he died in 1876. So I wrote to the SC Archives and asked for the estate papers for John Coates which I just received this week. The three were indeed sisters. In the papers Bluford Garrett stakes a claim on the estate on behalf of his daughters Mamie E. (look closely at the 1880 census. It looks more like "Many" than Mary) and Eva L. Garrett who must have been born between 1880 and 1883. I'm unable to find any further records for Mamie or Eva.
Unless you walked down the path I just did, you would never stumble across the information. Such is genealogy!
The estate papers are 175 11" by 17" pages. Unless you are a direct descendant, you probably don't want them yourself. If you wish, I can send you the relevant pages. Use my regular email

RE: Kelley's & Burton's
Yep! That'd be the William I'm looking for! Although my sis & I don't agree with the parents everyone has listed on ancestry, it's hard to disprove or prove anything until you find the grave. We have found that headstones provide a much better way of connecting people. And this William is our brick wall :(. Thanks for checking though-I really do appreciate it! Keep William Kelley in mind as you visit future resting places! ;)

RE: Kelley's & Burton's
William Kelley (b. abt 1805- d. Abt 1844). I've seen on find a grave that there is a Wm Kelley at Big Creek Baptist in Williamston but I can't connect his family to ours. I visited tht cemetery briefly and couldnt find his grave. The majority of the Kelleys I find are in Iva, SC and some in Georgia. Same for the Burton's.

Kelley's & Burton's
Hi Peggy! I read your bio and noticed the surname Kelley and Burton. I am related to some Kelley's & Burton's from the upstate of SC & GA. I have walked numerous graves in a desperate search for a certain Kelley. There is some dispute within our Kelley family as to who is who. I am wondering if you have any information you'd be willing to exchange with me?

Catherine "Kate" Perry Lewis
Catherine "Kate" Perry Lewis was the wife of my great uncle. I have two different birth dates for her from reliable sources, her death record and her obituary. Do you by any chance have a photo of her tombstone? If so, could I copy it to Ancestry? If you do not have a photo of the tombstone, what source did you use for her birth year? Thanks so much.

PS: I noticed your husband has Pearsons in his family. My Godmother was Lillian Pearson but she was born in Canada. That's a long shot!

Hey Peggy. I took my picture off the duplicate memorial that I set up, deleted it and added my picture to yours! Take Care

Warren David Garrett

I believe that Warren David Garrett is buried at East View Cemetery (the Baptist cemetery) in Zebulon, not Zebulon Methodist Church Cemetery.

Peggy, my grandmother was Myrtis McLendon Garrett. My father, Russell, was three years old when his mother passed. Though he hadn't many memories of her, he spoke about her and her family often. He passed peacefully away a few years ago and we'll always miss him. Thank you, David Garrett

I transferred this memorial to you. I had taken the photo so that was the only reason why I managed it.
