I have been researching our families since 1982. (It's a lot easier now!) I enjoy talking to and meeting relatives that I have searched for and found. I've located many interesting skeletons in my closet! My families are: Byrd (Bird),Brown, Fernandez, Henderson, Hill, Rivers, Still & Watson. |

|Jerry ||Reese Children Transfer|
Yes mam, transfers done. I know you had created so many of those sites in the Thurmond-Reese Cemetery with a lot of work getting it done. Just felt it was natural you should have those two children I came across. --Jerry

June, if you wish to have the new graves from the two young Reese children I discovered...let me know. I loaded them in the cemetery page with the headstone they share. I don't mind either way, but you may have some info on them to connect a parent.

I added the wide-view photo of the cemetery where William is & added the caption below:
Thurmond-Reese Cemetery shown here and WILLIAM THURMOND stone could not be verified. However, there are many "Thurmond" stones here and this would be the area he is laid to rest. Time has took it's toll on the legible inscriptions on many of the "Thurmond" stones. In fact, the stone (left of photo & slanted back) only has the name THURM readable and nothing else as an example) --This research done Dec 2013
The second photo I added to the cemetery homepage and shows the view from the roadway. Your welcome to save that pic and add it too if you wish. It hurts me I couldn't locate Williams stone as I know it had to be one that has lost the inscription over time. -Jerry

|Jerry ||Thurmond - Reese|
Yes, mam.. they are all 3 combined. Now that I have been there, I know. This is a large cemetery although private. Filled with Reese, Thurmond, & Green stones -some are readable and some are not. The land used to be owned by a "Thurmond" and was sold off to some degree. The Thurmond land is huge but this very portion where the graves are have become private property if any of this helps. So, yes... this one cemetery online is the only one. It was enjoyable to research, walk through, and photo the readable stones. Many unmarked stones are there even for slaves. Hope this helps...

I found two graves where children were sharing one stone and loaded them. If you wish to have them via transfer, let me no. Thank you mam, Jerry

|Jerry ||Thurmond - Reese Cemetery|
Hi June, I was actually filling a photo request for someone else and couldn't locate her specific person (William Thurmond) but did find a treasure trove of others I could photograph and saw where you just happened to manage those. Do you know a way to delete the other two Thurmond Cemetery's -as it just seems to confuse things with multiple listings. I happened to notice there were two more but only with one or two graves. Have a happy new year... -Jerry

I don't think there was any indication of his being a confederate soldier.
By the way, I also took pictures of other Leonard
family headstones. Just look under find a grave for Columbiana cemetery. They were listed but had no pictures of their headstones. Two of them looked like children. I believe one was less than two years old.

Yes I am aware of that. The cemetery has always maintained the name Phoenix cemetery.It is on the grounds of a church that was originally named Phoenix Church. I saw the cemetery listed on F.A.G. but had not one entry and that is why I went and did my walk. This church has changed names several times over the years. When I added the names to Phoenix cemetery at the request of our family, I had not seen the entries under Salvation & Deliverance. Once we connected, I was told that was the name that was on the church when she did her walk. That is why she listed the cemetery under that name. By the time we connected our family had printed Phoenix cemetery in the family reunion booklets as the place our ancestors are buried, because that is where they know them to be buried for years. No matter what name the church undergo, the cemetery has always been referred to as Phoenix. I have no problem with the two cemeteries, I know when a relative is looking for our ancestor they will be looking for Phoenix cemetery not Salvation
