Turning down edits
I'm not sure why you're turning down my edits either. I've been reading your public messages, and it seems that you do it to a lot of people. You keep doing it to me almost every time I send you something. You just turned down one for Gilbert M. Sutton (98717032), that I sent his middle name to you, Monroe, but you said it conflicts with your data. Well, if you click on his wife's name, and look at her obit, his middle name is right there. Seems like you are too quick to click Don't Accept. I'm not making up names or connections between people. I'm actually researching and gathering info from obits, gravestones, and death certificates, but you still say it conflicts with your data. Maybe your data needs to be updated some. I'm sorry that you happen to be the one that owns most of the cemeteries where a lot of my family members are or could be, and that I have to keep sending you edits. But it seems like every time I do, you don't really go look and see if you can tell where I got the info from. You just decline them. And I don't understand why. If you don't want to take the time to see if you can find the "new" info, then maybe you should start transferring pages to people that are sending you the edits that you keep turning down without checking to see if you can find the reason why the edits were sent in the first place. I've also noticed that you'll turn down edits, but yet when I go check and see why, you end up making the changes sometimes anyway, even after you have turned down the edit. It's like you don't want to give anyone else any credit for connecting the memorial pages that you own together. It's not like it shows that one person connected the mother, and another person connected the father, and so on. It doesn't show the names of the people that send in edits. So you're getting credit because you own the pages, no matter who is doing the connecting or editing. All you have to do is click Accept or Don't Accept. And it seems like you don't like to click on the Accept button, just because you don't want to, I guess. Maybe you're putting too many pages up at a time, and you can't keep up with them or take the time to find more info on them besides part of a name and a cemetery. It's like you won't let anything else be added for some reason. I would think you'd be happy that other people are trying to help by sending you edits. But it's almost like you're offended when someone does. Sorry if this sounds mean, but it feels to me that you are being mean by simply declining edits without even checking. Am I wrong?

RE: Juanita Perritt
Great! I see that you found them both. Seems I had the names a bit off, or incomplete. Jehue's name comes from a bunch of city directory listings, but I guess he was called Hugh. What you have looks correct. The 1930 AND the 1940 censuses were both in Columbia, Richland, South Carolina. 1930: father transcribed as Johne Stanely, mom as Mande Stanely. Good detective work!

RE: Juanita Perritt
I believe the father's name was Jehue L Stanley b. abt 1856 and the mother was Maude (maiden name unknown)b. abt 1888. I do not find memorials for either of them. Juanita appears with both of them on the 1930 census, then only with her husband (Travis Perritt) and her mother (Maude) on the 1940 census.

Jane Rembert Barrett
In 1900 the census lists her age as 85 yo. She was living with her daughter in Bishopville, SC ( Sumter or Lee which ever you prefer). She died the next year. I am guessing that at the moment she died she was in Bishopville. Her daughter died 6 yrs later. Its hard to know the exact location since death certificates were not issued at that time. Her age is also a little different as is seen so often in census records. I have no doubt that this is Jane Rembert daughter of James and Elizabeth Burkett Rembert. Given the history of the Rembert family living in and around Bishopville and that a Jane Rembert married Benjamin J Barrett and is found living in Bishopville with her husband all her life I think the evidence is clear. The Rembert family had a hand in building this church and were active in the Methodist movement in the south. I will resubmit her parents information if you agree and I will accept any evidence to the contrary.
Thanks, Jenny Disque

I am aware that Lee County did not exist when Jane Rembert Barrett was born and when she died. Unfortunately findagrave doesn't make allowances for that and the only choice I had was Lee since Bishopville no longer resides in Sumter. Maybe you can take that into consideration before you reject my corrections.

Notice you rejected the edit for "C" T Clyde. Georgia T. Robinson Clyde was the wife of Wm Alvah either you have made the wrong relation or you should accept the edit. Do you actually know how to do what you are doing here?

RE: Edit Connie Reid
what an idiot you are.

She is my great grandmother. my sister was named after her. I know what her name was.

I could show you newspaper clippings, but, as you say, its "your" listing.

RE: Edit Connie Reid
if you google "cornelia anna reid" you will see a book called "Wadhams genealogy" that shows birth dates and marriage dates for her and her husband Roland Leroy Hearon. She was my great grandmother.

If you go to and search for "cornelia anna reid" you will see a photo of her standing on a porch talking with my grandmother.

Hello, you rejected my proposed change to connie Reid hearons name. Would you accept the change if I sent you proof of her correct name?

I have asked for the dupe to be deleted, and updated the bio, deleting the info that a volunteer-you- could not find the stone.

You've been adding a lot of photos lately. I've come have a new appreciation for that, since I've been adding a bunch myself, and the download time is killing me, even with good connections. Any tips?

I do not get mad because without those who are in the area doing the work, as a genealogist, I would not have access to the info that is on the site-love the obits and photos.

My cousin & I went to 4 cemeteries in Kershaw County. One trip was in the snow and the other was in the summer. Someone sent me a very ugly email because we entered every one as the tombstone had them. One out of all of them was duplicated.

I pulled out my very best manners. then replied. I said that anyone was welcome to photo the stones and post them and ended by inviting that person to feel free to come to Camden at any time to take photos, but advised them against summertime.

We completed 3 cemeteries and much of Bethany Baptist in Westville. It is still incomplete.When you see Gary Williams under a tombstone photo, it is one he or I took.

Where do you live? The Lancaster County Cemetery Survey stops at R. A woman was helping her mother write down all of the info, doing them alphabetically. They got to R and the Mom died. No one has ever finished them.It is a rough job when you do an entire cemetery.We did two in one day and it was really hard to get out of bed the next day.

I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart, for finding my family member's grave site. This is such a great memorial and now I know where to locate her (Loyselle Pack Chamber) and can take my mother to see it and place flowers. I can't wait to let my mother know this awesome news. Thank you for your great work and God bless you!!

RE: photos
Hi Don,
The added photos are family pictures and the photographer is unknown and long gone. Request permission to your excellent headstone pictures in our family tree. We have not visited South Carolina in many years as all of our immediate family members moved out of state or are deceased.
If you are not a family member, request transfer of great grand parents per Find A Grave guidelines. We have DAR, SAR, Bio information and locations for providing a more complete memorial.
Happy new year,
