Bio and Links
Bio Photo My name is George Muse Gaston and for the last many years I have been tracing my family ancestors by walking through old family cemeteries and checking with county registers where known relatives have lived. It all started when I was nine or ten, helping a 1st cousin on my father's side of the family. For several weeks "Aunt Puddie", as she was known lovingly by the family, and I would head out early in the morning searching for old grave stones from Savannah to Edgefield, South Carolina. I can't remember who we were looking for, but I learned a lot about our family and the social history of the South.

Family ancestors that I am researching are: Gaston, Muse, Devlin, McKell, Bell, Agnew, Bradley, Montgomery, Pressly, Alston, Lyon, Glenn, Miller, Flenniken, Moore, May, Mangum, Weir, Goode, Greneker, Calhoun, DeWolfe, Dickinson, Rosborough, Emory, Service, Barnhill, Boykin, Wilkinson, Nicholson, Hemphill, Howard, deKoven, Sebor, Sheldon, Gardiner, Ochiltree, Howell, Ladd, Witherspoon, Schley, Snellings, Lankford, Kyte, Kimball and Kerr. Find-a-Grave has been invaluable with my journey.

You'll see many entries here from the old family church, Cedar Springs Associate Reformed Presbyterian Church (1780) in Abbeville County, South Carolina. I have fond memories of going there as a child and having "dinner on the grounds" after Sunday services. Here I have many relatives and always enjoy stopping by and having a long visit when I am in the area.

Since joining "find-a-grave" I have met many wonderful people and appreciate their help in my never ending search of ancestors past. If I can be of help to you in your searches, please email and I will try my best to assist.

Olga Hyatt Find A Grave Memorial# 144607869
Olga is buried in Duval County Florida and her tombstone states that she is the "Widow of Col. Robert Fee Hyatt". Do you have any information about Olga and her relationship to the Colonel?

Morning George!
I have added that photo for Margaret Jane. Hopefully it is a better read.

Thank you, George, for posting the photo of lovely Margaret. May I have your permission to post the information that you provided for her bio? I will give you all of the credit. I had no idea of her accomplishments. This should be shared with others.

I'm especially interested in the history of religious persecution in Scotland. I suspect that's one of the reasons why so many of my relatives were Presbyterians in Fairfield County.

RE: Paul Livingston Grier
You're welcome. I'm always happy to add links to memorials. Thanks for sending them and for letting me know that he was a librarian. I've added his name to my list.
Best regards,

RE: Henry and Elizabeth Garrett
The Garrett Cemetery is just another lost cemetery, probably with the graves of forgotten people. Personally, I am pleased that someone knows about some of the people in that cemetery.

Time, loggers and hunters take their toll on cemeteries lost in the woods.

And it's a pleasure to do business with you.

Just want to Know
Hello again. Would you please answer a question for me. As required by Find A Grave Rules, we can no longer scan obituaries to memorials. I now rewrite the obituaries in my own words, not verbatim and excluded any living persons, as required. Do you still want me to send obits this way. If you do not wish to enter such info, would you please let me know so I will not bother you anymore. According to Find A Grave Rules we can still scan death certificates, is it alright to add death certificates to your memorials? Thanks a regards.
