Joshua Bates
Regarding Emma McVeigh and her son George Smith
Good morning. My name is Joshua Bates and I am contacting you because you wrote the biography of Emma McVeigh Tambos on her FindAGrave page. I am assuming that you knew the family or are part of it. If not, I apologize. However, I am interested in finding out more about the family. She gave birth to a son by Alonzo Webster Smith named George Washington Smith (sometimes called George Joseph Smith...Joseph being his chosen Catholic name). Anyway, George is my adopted grandfather. He adopted my mother Cynthia when she was just a baby. George is still alive and well and I am conducting genealogical research on his side of the family. George was born in 1924/25 in Cardiff, Wales and moved to New York with his mother. He said he grew up on Long Island. He joined the Army and served in World War 2 as a tank commander and achieved the rank of Command Sergeant Major. He is living in Grovetown, Georgia these days.

Anyway, I hope that I have the right person. Either way, please contact me and let me know. Thank you and I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Joshua Bates

Is this person of European or African descent? There is another cemetery in Sumter County by the name of Calvary and it is an African American church.

Sorry, I meant James. No Tindals buried at the Calvary Nazarene Church cemetery.

Added by Cindy Johns on Jul 21, 2012 9:17 PM

The only cemetery that I could find in the directory of cemeteries for Sumter with Calvary (Calvery ?) did not have a John Tindale buried there. It is Calvary Church of the Nazarene.

Re: 93854644 Burnell McGahney
You are wondering why I contacted you with my question.... it's because it appears you're doing a great job documenting in this cemetery... I just took a wild stab at contacting you, believing that you knew what was what. You are being modest. I have seen your work. You're doing a beautiful job... that's why I contacted you... needed to speak with someone who would be helpful... to me that seemed like it would be YOU!
Looking forward to hearing back... don't want to add a memorial and be wrong about the cemetery. I agree with you though... it looks like this is where Burnell should be as far as cemetery location.

Re: 93854644

Christine, I have added a memorial for Burnell McGhaney... The death certificate indicates that the burial should be in this cemetery. Please get back with me and let me know if you agree that Mr. McGhaney has been placed/memorialized in the correct cemetery-I see that you have done a great deal of documentation in this cemetery so I am turning to you for advice.
See my page on Mr. McGhaney

RE: Blurry Pic
The marker is up high on a wall and I had to use telephoto lens to get it, and the sun was making it difficult to see. I tried to correct, but will try to take the picture again when I am there. The Garden Mauseleum, is a series of 30 foot exterior walls, so when they are high, I always have trouble. Sometimes it is better at a different time of day, so will try again.

RE: Kadish and other thoughts.
A volunteer snuck a camera out to Pinelawn and took some lovely photos of my cousin Gloria and Carls resting place for th efamily.

It will give their daughters comfort, I know. Ha! The grinches in the office were circumvented.
I am grateful for your offer
Continued good work here!

LOL, Thank you for the smile this morning.
My cousin found the directions to Sylvester Carl Farris and Gloria Blur Farris Graves...

I added the plot information to their memorials.

Seems very complicated to me, but then, I developed my own numbering and plot system for several of the memorials I have added.

Garden of Freedom
Sect 90, Block 3, Range 22, Plot R, Grave 64

This means so much to me. Thank you

Thank you so much for your wonderfully kind offer...
My cousin is looking for the grave location/plot information.
The traditional Jewish Prayer for the Dead (Called the Kaddish)
is said on the anniversary of th edeath and can be said on visiting the grave.
here is th eEnglish translation and the transliteration..when Amen is said, all say it together
May the great Name of God be exalted and sanctified, throughout the world, which he has created according to his will. May his Kingship be established in your lifetime and in your days, and in the lifetime of the entire household of Israel, swiftly and in the near future;

and say, Amen.

May his great name be blessed, forever and ever.
Blessed, praised, glorified, exalted, extolled, honored elevated and lauded be the Name of the holy one, Blessed is he- above and beyond any blessings and hymns, Praises and consolations which are uttered in the world;

and say Amen.

May there be abundant peace from Heaven, and life, upon us and upon all Israel; and say,


He who makes peace in his high holy places, may he bring peace upon us, and upon all Israel; and say Amen.

Re Sylvester Carl Farris and Gloria Farris
RE Pinelawn Memorial Park in Farmingdale.
As a member of the family of the intered, I hearby authorize you to photograph the graves of my cousins. The are in my virtual cemetery on FindaGrave if the folks at the cemetery doubt my familial relationship.
I faxed a request to the office twice and have been ignored for 2 years.
Should you revisit, let them know you are goinmg to say Kadish for me over the graves and then telephone click and message it to me...(914 643-4383)
Thanks Gene

RE: Pinelawn Cemetery
I really agree with you. "The so called trouble" is only for taking photos there, though I'm not sure how they thought to confirm are you a family member or not. It shouldn't be illegal when there won't be any living persons included.. however that is the info they've given by the staff. I've also requested a photo from there so will continue to wait if someone will risk their life. Boo.

You are probably right about dates being underground on the stone. If I get back to the cemetery again soon I will dig a little away with my hand to see, then of course put it right back.

Hello Christine,
I posted the picture you requested for Elinor Glisson in Calverton National Cemetery. Her husband Luther is buried with her. Next to them is Carrie Glisson - apparently Luther's first wife? I added pictures to the memorials for both Luther & Carrie.

Enoch Smith
There is a New Hopewell Cemetery over 140 years old between Hartsville and Society Hill, maybe he is in there.

Enoch Smith
Hi Christine
I live in the Hartsville, SC area and noticed you need a photo for Enoch Smith who is buried in Hopewell ceemtery. I am unable to locate this cemetery in Hartsville, area. I see there is a cemetery with this name in Florence County, do you think that is the same cemetery? Please advise and I would be happy to go and look to see if Enoch is buried there and take a photo of the marker.

Kind regards

RE: Klugh
Could he have been buried in Greenwood, SC? I notice that he had relatives buried in
Tranquil Methodist in G'wd.

I will keep looking.

Are you sure he is buried at Upper Long Cane Cemetery? He is listed in the cemetery book, but I can't find a grave. Can you give me any clues of family members who might be buried near him?

Andrew Pritchard Klugh
Hey, Christine,

I have a friend who came across a gravesite a year or two ago when he was deer hunting. It was the grave of a girl named Jennifer Klugh, age 18 and the date was in the 1800's. The location of the grave was in the woods just off of Johns Creek Road in Greenwood.

That was the only grave still standing and since then they have cleared the land completely for a new subdivision. They is no evidence today that the graves were ever there.

I don't know if this is the Johns Creek cemetery you spoke of when you requested a photo of Andrew, but I think it's highly probable.

If I find out anything else, I'll let you know.
