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, Bradley, Montgomery, Pressly, Alston, Lyon, Glenn, Miller, Flenniken, Moore, May, Mangum, Weir, Goode, Greneker, Calhoun, DeWolfe, Dickinson, Emory, Service, Barnhill, Boykin, Wilkinson, Nicholson, Hemphill, Howard, deKoven, Sebor, Sheldon, 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: John Hugh Gaston and family
Your welcome, would rather have family members maintain their relations. They generally take a personal interest in making sure they are maintained.

RE: Jane Mary Smith Carson
I have created memorials for some other people with the surname of Carson. They are buried in the Geneva and Canadiagua NY area. Go into my name and search for last name Carson and you should be able to see their names. If you would like me to transfer any of them to you please let me know.

Thank you George
All the volunteers at Find A Grave should receive many kudos for the effort and time they put into making this a valuable information website.

Your contributions are appreciated as well. From one graver to another; I hope you continue to enjoy the work we all do to bring a little history to families who have those empty spaces that need filling.

RE: Joseph Randolph Gaston
I must decline since Joseph is somewhere off in the Gaston forest. I just tripped across him doing other research. Thanks for the offer however. Sincerely. Bill Gaston
