RE: J. B. Lee Strickland
Thank you for your kind words. It is so much better than being attacked by a bully with no name, wanting to "call me out". Because of the comments he has posted (when I remove them he just posts again), your comments lighten my heart. Someone attempted to defend me and for some reason I'm now accused of referring to SC people as ignorant rednecks. It is for this reason that it is SO important to hear good things from people like you. I am especially delighted your 92 yr old father loved the photo's. My own father passed at age 93, he would have loved what I have done.

Thanks for the kind words.

Susan R Perhala-Horry County Cemetery Registration
RE: Duplicate cemeteries
There are some discrepancies on dates. I compared but didn't submit anything to forum because I wanted to get your input first. You and I agree on this so I say go forward with your efforts. I did send edits to the contributors that needed to correct their dates. Seems ancestry is quicker to merge cemeteries when the dates are all matching up. If you want to wait till after Christmas I don't mind straightening this out through the editors. We are on the road till late 12/27 and there's no way this is something I'd want to do from my IPhone like I'm doing now. Your call. Let me know. Susan.

Susan R Perhala-Horry County Cemetery Registration
Duplicate cemeteries
Reed-Odom Family in Blackville (Barnwell Cty,SC)
Reed-Birt-Kemp Family (Barnwell County, SC)

Looks like your entries may have been first. The cemetery however is named differently according to the sign posted on the gate (photo of the other cemetery listing).

Question: Did you find out how the Reed-Birt-Kemp Family cemetery got that name? I am guessing that the name was unknown and the person who started this listing used the names of those buried there and called it Reed-Birt-Kemp.... any info on this?

Re: Edward Eargle
Do you happen to have copies of his parents' obits (M. Ralph Eargle & Annie Shealy Eargle)? If so, could you email them to me? My email is on my contributor page. Thanks!

Someone was kind enough to transfer a great great uncle of mine who also died in the Civil War. Just passing it on. Family history is so fascinating.

I wonder if it would be possible to put a note on his page to help future researchers. A volunteer went to that cemetery last week to take a photo of his grave marker and there is not one. His wife's grave is marked, but his is not.
