Frank Sightler grave
Find A Grave Memorial# 92329455

I would agree this is your relative. I do not have mothers name, but father and other family members are definitely in the Sitler (later Sightler) cemetery. Would you like the man or other family members transferred to your care? Do you know if he was a tree harvester or frequently in the woods? The facial/skull injuries he survived are similar to someone being hit by a 'widow maker'. A tree limb, dead and detached from trunk but hanging, generally vertical, that suddenly drops onto the unsuspecting person underneath, often with fatal results. I only know this because a family member recently survived this event with almost identical injuries as described. Today has surgery to help correct massive injuries such as this. I'm sure Lexington County Coroner's office and the Chicora Organization would still like to hear from a relative of this man. http://www.chicora.org/pdfs/RC540%20Sightler%20Cemetery%20optimized.pdf

Thanks for all you do.

Sightler Cemetery
David,

My husband is researching his family, and we believe a number of relatives are buried at the Sightler Cemetery in Lexington County.

Since you are listed as the person posting most of the photos of that cemetery, we wanted to contact you with some questions/requests.

Please contact us privately.

perhaps I asked if you have a Frank Sightler, who died in 1953 in your line. Do you? An Uncle or Cousin, perhaps?

RE your response to my message:
Yes,
My mother was Teresa Yvonne Sightler West.
Her father was William Harmon Sightler.
Most of my tree is uploaded on Ancestry.com.
I would appreciate any help you can provide, especially in the way of sources.

I don't have a copy of the public message I posted on your profile. You keep your public messages pretty cleaned up. Not sure what I asked. Probably if Sitler aka Sightler were names in your tree. Did you check out the Sitler Cemetery, Lexington County, SC? The information on the ruins of those stones is priceless for genealogy. I'm not on Ancestry.com (although I was for about a week - when our local library offered it to the customers for a free trial, no sign up, no name, no email, no credit card info, it was great while it lasted.) Maybe I saw your info posted during that brief time. Sorry, I'm lost as to what I asked you and what I've told you already. I can only say that if you have that line check out that cemetery.
