Bio and Links
Bio Photo This work is dedicated to my friend Carroll Pitman 1926- 2009. He showed me South Carolina's history and it's people in ways I never could have imagined. Like sturdy fabric our families are woven together. I feel blessed to have known him and worked with him.
I am descended from William Crain - Shadrick Crain - Andrew Jackson Crain - Augustus G. Crain - Jefferson R. Crain - (Living) and myself. Others names Sherman (NY, CO) Whitaker (NC), Puett (NC),Bruce(SC), Duenweg (IN), Braymer (NY), Howard (SC), Johnson (IN), Allen (IN), Yancey and Zickefoose (Iowa +Va)... States most active in - SC, NC, GA, AL, CO, NY, MO, IN, IL, VA and Iowa.
Photos I have shared are copyrighted and are not to be published with out my written permission. Some photos I have lovingly shared and articles, that are in the possession of my family are now being used without recognition of the source.
Genealogy is based on fact. A connection must be made to make it acurate and true. The sources are what make it so. History isn't always pretty, though we may wish it so. But all of the tree, good and bad and sad makes a beautiful quilt. Full of character. It is not hard to love the quilt.
Mother of one and grandmother of two. Lover of all kinds of music and will never stop dancing.
One thing I learned from Carroll, is that if not properly sourced genealogy is nothing but a tale. It is a researcher's responsibility to find the truth. I would appreciate that if you wish to use the photos I have given you or photos and data from my site that you note the source.
I had two reasons for learning my family history. Both of my grandfather's, Jefferson Rado Crain and Frederick Sherman, died on my birthday. I met them each only once. I am the youngest girl in the photo. Second, my health has always been bad and in this search I have found out why. I got double whammed on both sides of the maternal tree. Our history is so important.

RE: Callie P. Scoggins Belflower
I spoke with my Grandmother's son who is now in his 80's and he doesn't remember Cordelia Coffey Scoggins mother's name. He did say that several of the "Coffey" family is buried in Idabel, Oklahoma at a cemetery called Forrest Hill. To the best of his knowledge several lived in Garvin Oklahoma, which is in that general area. I looked in Forrest Hill Cemetery and found no one named William Rice Coffey, but did find Cordelia Scoggins. Sorry I'm not of much help, but will check with my Grandmothers oldest daughter and see if she might remember her Great Grandmother's maiden name.

RE: Mamie/Marnia DeVault Prichett
Hello P.Sherman,
I deleted the original photo to save room on my computer. I tried blowing up the photo from find a grave but since it was already resized to fit there guidelines it made the photo worse. Thanks for finding out when and where she died. I tried but could not find nothing. If her and her family is kin to you let me know and i would transfer them to you. F. Hylton

William Henry Haley
I noticed you left a note on his memorial that said his father is Benjamin F. Haley father of eight children. Do you mean William was the father of eight children or Benjamin was the father of eight children? I am a descendant of Benjamin F. Haley and want to make sure I have all of this information correct.

RE: Leonard Freeman Reese
There was one other stone I found that had Reece on it. However, Reece is about all you can make out. As for the headstone for Leonard Reece, the dates as I can read them are as follows: Mr. L.F. Reece born 2/11/1862 died 8/16/1942...Mrs. S.B. Reece 7/28/186? Died 3/15/195?. At least that's what it looks like go me. Hope this helps.

Dewey Webb Copeland inquiry
I just saw your message about Dewey Webb Copeland. He was known "Webb" to my husband. He was his Uncle by marriage (Margaret was his mother's sister). He had four daughters:

Lena Jo Copeland Blankenship
deceased 2008 but for some reason I don't have the exact date

Rebecca "Becky" Blankenship Temple

Virginia "Ginger" Blankenship

Vera Faye Blankenship Harvey - goes by Faye:

I may have a photo of Webb in some old photos but we are currently living out of state for our son's pending double lung transplant so don't have all the photos with me. I don't remember having one, except for possibly a group photo with Jim's grandmother and her kids and their spouses. I will search for it on my computer if he was in that photo. contact me privately for any further info as do not want to post dates online here.

RE: Druery Dobbins
You're quite welcome for the photo of the marker for Druery Dobbins. I attempted to straighten and crop the image since the original photo wasn't of ideal quality. I have posted a cropped image on the memorial page. You are welcome to download them for your records. ~ Regards, Jen

Hi, I see you left a flower and note that he was the son of James Marion & Loretta Howell Rhodes. Would you have links to them so I could link him to his parents? He is my son-in-laws grandfather.
