Bio and Links
Bio Photo We are David & Effie. We were born and raised in upstate South Carolina. I found Find A Grave in 2009 and now David has joined me in a search for our "lost" family members. We sincerely hope that along the way our contributions to this site will help others find theirs.

We wish to thank those who have made memorials for our family members and those who have transfered management of them to us. We especially want to thank those who have made the corrections we requested, as correct and complete data is the key to accomplishing our goals.

Our primary sources of information for our memorials, other than direct knowledge of burial, are grave marker photos and obituaries. We use these sources as backup for our entries, as we DO NOT make any without proof of burial location.

Our motto is... to err is human, and to correct is necessary. Please contact us if you find an error on our memorials or if you have missing information that we can add to make an appealing and honorable memorial. We will gladly correct any errors on our entries, make additions, add links or transfer memorials if they are not related to us. (please use the EDIT tab and make a suggestion option on the memorial for any request.)

We understand that a photo says more than a thousand words, and is a very important part of family research. It is our pleasure to offer our photos for personal genealogical purposes. You may re-post on Find A Grave if you will have the courtesy to give us credit in the caption of the photo. Otherwise, DO NOT RE-POST!

Everyone is welcome to visit and leave a flower for our immediate family members listed below or any of our memorials and once again, we wish to thank all of our Find A Grave friends who have done a wonderful job in helping preserve our heritage and making this a wonderful site.

Thank You
I just wanted to say thank you for all the memorials that you have done. You have helped me greatly in my search for family in S.C. You both are very much appreciated for the work you do on Find A Grave.
Have a blessed day, Lisa

Hi again,

You may not have noticed that you have 2 pages for Luther:

Poole, Luther 40074514
b. Mar. 27, 1823 d. Oct. 4, 1864 Zion Hill Baptist Churc...
Spartanburg County
South Carolina, USA

Poole, Luther B 40074508
b. Apr. 29, 1860 d. Jun. 10, 1883 Zion Hill Baptist Churc...
Spartanburg County
South Carolina, USA

Also, from my research on, I believe that Marietta Bryant is the daughter of Luther & Nancy W (nee Lipscomb)Poole, and that Marietta is the first wife of Elijah S.V. Bryant. I believe Elijah is buried somewhere in Georgia, but so far, I haven't found his grave.
