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.

RE: Charles C. Plaxco, Sr.
Are you by any chance, Charles Cowan Plaxco. I am working on a book about the descendants of Capt. William McGill of York County, SC. If you are, I need some help with Plaxco information.

Please email me direct:

Thank you.

Miller
The pleasure of documenting the Miller family graves was all mine! I found Julian Miller's grandson tending the family plot. The grandson - Jules (son of Robert) - took the time to share much of the family history and walked me through the cemetery. Julian's son, Julian was the first Sardis Presbyterian church member killed in WWII. There was a building that the church used on the property built in memory of Julian Jr. Many years later when the church removed the building, the family put their energy into maintaining the family plot. All is a beautiful memorial to beloved family. On this Memorial Day 2015 - I am most grateful to the service of Julian Miller who died in WWII service.

That is my approach, too, George! You and I have more in common than blood! Have a great day!

Lawson transfers
Greetings, I have made the requested transfers. Please leave the note that this information in regardings to burial comes from the WPA records. At least until such time as a photograph of a marker is added. I am happy to transfer generational grandparents.

I noticed that you uploaded an obituary for W. N Calhoun. Are you a descendant? I am related distantly to W N. Calhoun, but am also related to his wife Virginia Caroline Bowman Calhoun and would be interested in contacting any existing direct descendants. Thanks for any info. you can provide.

RE: Pickens Stansell Moore
No problem, glad to do it. I was visiting the cemetery, from NC, and decided to see if there were any of the requests that I could fulfill. I have a 7th great grandfather buried there.
