Creswell family question
Hi Harriet, Do you have any information on who the parents of Martha "Mattie" Creswell Brown were?

She was the first wife of Mathew Brown. She died around 1820 and is buried in Lower Long Cane Cemetery in South Carolina.

Here's her memorial page link:

RE: Wilson marker
Hi Harriet,

I am so glad that these are the correct Wilson's. And that these were your great aunt and uncle. It is always so nice to find a lost relative. I was very glad to help you.

Abbeville Wilsons
My earliest known Wilson descendant is Thomas M Wilson (1825-?) of Abbeville. I haven't been able to definitively identify his parents. Yes, the Abbeville Wilsons are very complicated.

maybe cousin :)

Hi Harriett,

I linked Herbert and William J Wilson to their parents. Let me know if you need anything else done.

I looked up the poem, and Mark Twain had it inscribed on his daughters grave. Most people thought he had written it so he later had the authors name added. The lines were adapted from a poem entitled "Annette" written by Robert Richardson. The poem was published in a book entitled Willow and Wattle, (1893).

Just thought you'd like to know :)

RE: Dargans in Edgewood

Thank you very much for sending the message about taking the grave photo of Rev Dargan's grave! You're right, that's a wonderful poem on his grave. I've never heard it before and I love it.

Thanks again,

Mrs. M. M. Dansby
Hello. You sent the follwoing: Mrs. M. M. Dansby's name was Malissa Crawford Dansby; married William Franklin Dansby; both buried at Upper Long Cane--you might want to put her full name since the stone does not have it. Thanks.

I have added the information you sent and up dated the family links, thank you for the information, regards, and have a great Findagrave day.
