It was more than generous of you to transfer all those McMaster memorials to me! However, I did not receive those of great-grandparents, James Fleming and Christine Gooding McMaster.

Thank you,

Good afternoon,

I am wondering whether you would consider transferring management of my great-grandparents memorials, James Fleming McMaster (54978852) and Tirzah Christine Gooding McMaster (54978845)?

My mother's sister is Jeannette Mann, #72891356. Would you consider transferring her memorial to me so that I can connect her to the rest of her family? Thank you for your consideration!

Herman, thank you much for the transfer of Timothy and Isabella's menorials to me. You did a great job of maintaining them for which I'm so apperciative.

Thank you
Thank you Mr. Durr for taking the photo of my great-great grandmothers tombstone. You have added another piece of the puzzle of my South Carolina family where my roots run very deep. I live in the North (grew up in Washington DC) and don't have much of a chance to come down to SC where my ancestors lived. I only have a picture of her daughter Beulah but none of her. It's good to know her headstone is in such great shape. Thank you, your contributions mean a lot to those who are actively putting together our family trees!! :) God Bless you!

Julia Palmer Hesler
Source for Charlotte W Turner's date of death
Greetings, Herman, and thanks for what you do to support genealogical research.

Today, I submitted a change for Charlotte W. Turner's memorial. I found her date of death in a publication entitled DEATH NOTICES LISTED IN THE FAIRFIELD HERALD AND
THE NEWS AND HERALD, which I found on the Fairfield County Genealogy Society web site. Charlotte's death notice was published April 23, 1884...very simply:

Mrs. Charlotte W. Vann died on March 29, near Blythewood.

Thomas Fletcher Walker #61990032
From bio on your profile, you are probably not related to these Walkers in Fairfield, but if so I certainly would like a bit of information on them. Thomas apparently married the younger sister Mary Emma Rhine first and then Cynthia A about 1890 even though it says on the 1900 census they were married 1871, Cynthia was single and home in 1880.
The info on the marriage and children is probably correct for Thomas Fletcher Walker, but not for Cynthia.

Thanks for making so many memorials and photos of stones for my extended family in Fairfield County.

Jack Ruple, Sr.
tombstone of "John J"

I once relied on this late placed marker for info ...
As you know, " John J." did not come from Germany.
What you may not know and I didn't discover til a couple of years ago when I did the article for OGSGS on gravemarkers is that "John J." is also wrong ... This immigrant son was born Johannes Roppel with no middle name as many GermanSwiss children had ....It was not uncommon to see both a Johannes (John) and a Johann (Jacob, Henry, etc). OUr immigrant in Orangeburg was simply Johannes per the church record.

PSA have a great 2016! and thanks for all your help in the past on this family!

Thanks for your patience as I matched families at Crooked Run, Trapp family cemetery, and Chappell O. Trapp cemetery. This journey started last Sunday at a Lewis reunion in Greenbrier. One of the young men has the first name of Trapp. His father suggested I look at Crooked Run Cemetery. I began to see some connections and had to search for others.
I am still looking for the link with this young man's name though it starts with the Trapp/Brook connection Time to ask for more info from his family.
The Trapps found here are a branch off of my tree.
Thanks again

Rebecca Shuler Collier Shiloh Cemetery
Hi: Was at Shiloh today looking for her husband for a photo request. I beleive he may be in the plot next to hers which is unmarked. Note of interest however, on the stone the husband's name is spelled WHILIAM Collier. It may have been a stone mason error, but maybe not as why would someone go out of their way to etch a common name with an unusual spelling? Just a for what it's worth note. Pat

ellen sanders
Hello...I am searching my husband's family and came across your entry on Find a Grave for Fanny Sanders. My husband's grandfather was Willis R. Sanders, brother to Fanny. I see where, in 1900, a number of people have Fanny married to Julius S Fairey who apparently died in 1912 but on the 1910 census, Fanny has been married to David Ruple for 15 years! There is also another Julius Fairey on the 1910 census. I know that the death certificate for Fanny Ruple states that her father is Jacob Sanders and that is my husband's line, but if so, am not sure where Julius fits in. I wonder if you can help me in any way. Best to contact me by email at Thank you for any help you might be able to offer.

Hi! Just watched the true story movie about them, "The Last Confederate". The DVD has some nice commentary from the family re: his being a CW soldier and their relationship. Thought it might be a nice idea to add to their pages - just a thought! KP in Gettysburg :)
