You have done justice to Robert Wadsworth! Thank you so much. For anyone wanting the full documentation for joining the DAR or the SAR, they should be able to connect via my DAR number which is 773794. I also want to let you know, that I have entered a cemetery, in Cumberland Valley Twp, for his descendants that are buried there including his first wife Mary, who I descend from. I called it "Kelley-Wadsworth" and am just waiting to hear back from findagrave, for their approval. Robert's land on that mountain top was beautiful, when I visited there many years ago. Warren told me that there is another Wadsworth Cemetery on the other side of the mountain, but I did not go there. Did you find it? I would also like to know, if you took photos of all the other family stones where Robert is buried.

Thank you so much for the photograph. I very much appreciate your kindness.
I believe Robert said in his pension application that he joined the 8th Virginia Regiment in March, 1776. The 8th moved shortly after that from Virginia down towards South Carolina. The 8th did participate in that campaign. After the battle, the regiment headed towards Georgia and the city of Savannah. No battle was fought there, but after a short period of time marched back to Virginia.
Robert was then assigned to Washington's Commander-in Chief's Guard in 1777.
Robert's old 8th Virginia Regiment was combined into another regiment in 1779, and that regiment into another later on.
The second seige of Charleston was in 1781 or 1782. The battle was fought only with Continental line forces. No state militias were involved. The Americans lost the battle and every regiment surrendered to British forces. All American soldiers were transferred to prison ships for the duration of the war. Some officers and possibly a few non-coms were used in prisoner swaps. Most remained in captivity. There is no record that I know of which says Robert was a prisoner-of-war, so it is probable that he was not at the second seige. Hopefully someone in the future will untangled this uncertainty. I hope so. Again, thank you for the photo. It looks great!

I deleted the 13 star flag from Robert's memorial page. You can go ahead and enter the photo of his grave site on his home property. Thank you.

Yes, go ahead and send it to me. I will list you as the copyright owner. I have a picture of Warren Wadsworth at that grave site, but it is in a family history and copyright protected.
Mike, can you tell me what you think of Robert's memorial page? I hope I haven't overdone it with too many graphics and too many facts. There are a lot of descendants out who know little or nothing about their ancestors, and I thought this would be a good way to give them some knowledge of their heritage. I would be grateful for any comments.

|Eleanor F.||Alford grave location|
When I searched findagrave to see if there was a page set up for St Mary's, I found the one I put my Alford grave in, and assumed it was the right one. I don't recall having a choice between this one and another similar one... Of course being from out of state I had no idea the county was off as I believe Lexington and Richmond counties both cover Columbia, so it looked right to me. I have not checked, but if there are no other graves posted for the wrong St. Mary's, shouldn't that cemetery be deleted to stop other graves from being posted there by mistake? I wonder if we can even delete that cemetery or if we have to have findagrave do it. Thanks for your eagle eye, nothing is worse than sending a photo volunteer on a wild goose chase to a cemetery that is listed incorrectly. At least you knew better.

Thank you for the photo, it is a lovely marker and made for a very appealing photo. It is wonderful to have volunteers willing to take photographs of markers that are so far away from where I live, that I will never be able to set eyes on them in person. Thanks for your help, time, and effort.

|Lyndon Comstock||James Davis gravestone|
I'm delighted to see a photo of the gravestone of James Davis in Columbia. Thank you!
Because findagrave compresses the photos to a point where you can't blow them up, I'm unable to read the inscription. Would you be willing to either email an uncompressed copy of the photo, so that I can read it (my email address is below), or else tell me what the inscription says?
Also, I hope it will be ok with you if I attach this photo to my family tree, crediting you as the photographer....
Thanks so much!

Did you look at Ruben Martin's death cert.
It say that he is buried at Mount Tabor Cem., in West Columbia, SC.
Do you have any ideas where that cemetery is located?
