Bio and Links
Bio Photo I hope that what I submit to the findagrave database will be of help to Genealogists. Transcribed cemeteries lack everything but the names and dates, usually. It's a good starting point, however. I try to include as many details as I can in the records, using whatever resources are available. Just the facts, if you will.
I'm of Scottish descent (and YES, I do own a kilt and wear it when occasions warrant it), so it is of particular interest to me when I find early Scottish settlers here in South Carolina. Many stones will tell a saga of the Scots leaving their ancestral homes (known as "The Clearances" in some instances)to make a home here, in America. It's quite fascinating to read the stories written in stone.
I'm also a fan of DNA testing. I belong to Hapolgroup l1a. I suggest FamilyTreeDNA.
If I've recorded faulty information about, or you have information regarding, any names that I've added to the Findagrave database, then please email me. Put "Findagrave" in the subject area of the email, or I'll delete it as junk mail. I'm not a Find-a-grave elitist, but I do believe that any new information should be backed up with proof: Obits. Photographs. A scan of a page from the family bible. Whatever. Accuracy is important.

Finally, I work for a living. I'm not a retiree with oodles of free time on my hands. I tend to emails and requests as soon as I can, but sometimes commitments and familial obligations keep me from being Johnny-on-the-spot. Please be patient.

Johnny Crawford's Grave Site
Thank You so very much for doing the Photo of Johnny Crawford's Grave Site my mother is going to be 84 this year and though she lives in Gulfport is unable to get around much anymore. She does go online sometimes so now she can go there. Thank You again and God Bless You for what you do.
