Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been working on family history now for 36 years. I am originally from Lancaster, SC now residing in Columbia, SC. I have travelled the country looking for grave sites related to Youngs, Steeles/Steels, Heglers, Williams, Stewmans, Dentons, McCains, Blackmons, Stogners, Finchers, Manns, Lowerys, Hartsells, Miskelleys, Catoes, McManus', McAteers and others. Any information on any of these families will always be appreciated. Thanks to all those who have been so great at helping and transferring and leading me to the right places to get the family together. (Sorry if I ask for the aunts, uncles, cousins, the great aunts and great uncles and the such. They are family and if you are not related I don't understand the problem.) I do not mind transferring any memorial that I've created that is not in my family group(except for spouses) Please email or leave a public message, Thanks ever so much again. PS- an occasional statement has been made about the number of memorials managed vs created. I have requested to manage a number of memorials of a family member who passed away in order to keep the work up on the family history.

In searching the archive for the Athens review I find obits which I like to pass on; I attempted to send for Samuel, but the computer said it wasn't sent because of an error. If you do receive it, please let me know. If not I will re-send.

Note about John Chandler Steele
I thought I would let you know that John Chandler Steele was married before Felda to Lillie Osborn Barnes born Nov 4, 1874 died Sept 16, 1894 (in child birth) Cherry Valley, Cross County, Arkansas. This marriage produced two children: Calla Haseltine Steele (married 1) Chesley Pitts 2) Walter Maupin) (born 12-31-1892 Wynne, Arkansas died 1-1990 Memphis, TN). Kinnie Lillie Steele (born 9-16-1894 died 12-27-1968 Wynne, Arkansas) married Edward Brewster. The Girls were raised by their Grandparents- William and Caroline Barnes.
