I started looking for my family after stumbling on this site. I was so EXCITED to find MY GGGGG Grands, and the cemeteries have done a great job of preservation. I love photography and wandering through old cemeteries, some of the monuments are awe inspiring. I was also struck and saddened by the crumbling faded stones, especially the ones I remembered playing among during my childhood. It is so sad that someone will look for a relative and not be able to see the stone any longer. Therefor I feel that we all have an obligation to photograph and try to save these memories. |
How do I get a relative's memorial transferred to me?
Transfer requests should be for direct relatives within four generations.
Explain your relationship in the request! Any non-direct relatives (aunts, uncles, cousins, etc) are not required to be transferred.
Please note that it is not appropriate to request a transfer and then, after receiving the transfer, delete that page and substitute it with a new memorial that you have created.
Get out and photograph memorials while they are still readable. This site is primarily for GRAVE photos not genealogy, preserve those memories that are quickly fading.

Sorry, but nowhere does it state the soldier, of this memorial was born in 1929.
The record of his burial was from U.S. Headstone Applications for Military Veterans, 1925-1963. These are official government records. This was on the memorial page. The information of his burial at Laurens County Cemetery was taken from these records. I have now changed it to state "This information was obtained from the (new) U.S. Headstone Applications for Military Veterans, 1925-1963. 1925-1963 were the years the records were produced, not when this soldier was born/died.
You also asked about the location of Laurens County Cemetery. It is in Laurens, Laurens, South Carolina as the memorial page states.
Many soldiers who died in the Civil War were hurriedly buried (if at all) in unmarked graves literally at the spot in which they died. Others were later buried in nearby cemeteries which was probably the case of this soldier.
Soldiers of this war wrote letters home stating that they felt this would be their fate and they would be totally forgotten. I am making sure he is not even if we don't know his name.
Feel free to contact me if you have anymore questions.

Would you please transfer Evelyn Williams to me?
She is my father's only sister and is buried alone. The Gibsons are her step-grandparents. It took me years to find her.

Most of the info that is in the obituary is already in the bio that I wrote myself. My intent was to get a copy of the obit and put it in as a photo. If you have a copy already and can put it in that way, I would like it better than changing the bio. Otherwise, I will get it when I make my next trip to the library. Marshall and Ruby were members of my church. I ran the sound system for both of their funerals. Let me know if you can do this.

Thank you for his dates and for the photo. There is also an L. H. Humphries with no dates. I wonder if it is his wife?
