Bio and Links
Bio Photo My name is George Muse Gaston and for the last many years I have been tracing my family ancestors by walking through old family cemeteries and checking with county registers where known relatives have lived. It all started when I was nine or ten, helping a 1st cousin on my father's side of the family. For several weeks "Aunt Puddie", as she was known lovingly by the family, and I would head out early in the morning searching for old grave stones from Savannah to Edgefield, South Carolina. I can't remember who we were looking for, but I learned a lot about our family and the social history of the South.

Family ancestors that I am researching are: Gaston, Muse, Devlin, McKell, Bell, Bradley, Montgomery, Pressly, Alston, Lyon, Glenn, Miller, Flenniken, Moore, May, Weir, Goode, Greneker, Calhoun, Dickinson, Service, Barnhill, Boykin, Wilkinson, Nicholson, Hemphill, Howard, Ochiltree, Howell, Witherspoon, Schley, Snellings, Lankford, Kyte, Kimball and Kerr. Find-a-Grave has been invaluable with my journey.

You'll see many entries here from the old family church, Cedar Springs Associate Reformed Presbyterian Church (1780) in Abbeville County, South Carolina. I have fond memories of going there as a child and having "dinner on the grounds" after Sunday services. Here I have many relatives and always enjoy stopping by and having a long visit when I am in the area.

Since joining "find-a-grave" I have met many wonderful people and appreciate their help in my never ending search of ancestors past. If I can be of help to you in your searches, please email and I will try my best to assist.

Hi - I hope you do not mind that I added a photograph of Dr. Kinney's home, The Elms, that you reference in the historical note. It is in my area. Photographing old homes is an avocation.
