I was born and raised in Norfolk, Virginia. Retired from the US Marine Corps and living here near Greenville, SC for the past 16 years. My husband & I have 3 grown children and 7 grandchildren. We have been involved in genealogy since 1998 and love sharing with others. We also love to travel in our RV when we can, that way we can combine our two loves of travel and grave searching. Love this site!
RE: Alice Sherwood I FOUND HER! She is definitely the daughter of Charles W Sherwood and Cornelia Taylor Sherwood. I found her birth record and everything.....just can't find where she is buried...I'm still looking. Death certificate states that she was taken back and buried in Malta, Morgan County, Ohio. I don't find her in any of the cemeteries on findagrave.com nor in any of the cemetery books I have for Morgan County. Funny....I had forgotten to ever go back and figure this out until you brought it back to my attention on findagrave. If you have any photos or any records that I don't have...I would love to have copies. God Bless and Happy Hunting.
RE: Alice Sherwood Hey! I think I have it! Alice and Nell were the daughters of Charles W Sherwood and Cornelia Taylor. Do you visit ancestry.com? If so, my family page can help. I'm pretty sure this is correct. Charles 1st wife died in 1880 and I find him getting married to Cornelia Taylor in 1882. I'm doing more research now to see if I can find where she died. I'll let you know what I find. If you want, give me a call at home...I have a toll free number at home 1-866-791-9921. I'll be home after 3 today. God Bless, Pam

Carl Price at Motlow Creek Semper Fi. Hello again. I found Carl Price's Obit in the index at Spartanburg Library. His Memorial number is 34836980 at Motlow Creek Baptist Church Cemetery. His obituary appears in the Spartanburg Hearld Journal Obituary section, March 12, 1950, on page A2. Thought you might get it if you go to the Library in Spartanburg. Yours in the hunt, Bennie.
Dorothy Tallardy Hello, Barbara, I am curious to know how you may be related to Dorothy Wamsley Tallardy. My name is Gerry Grant. Dot Tallardy's son Tom was in my grade school class at West Chester (PA) Friends school in the 6th grade (1958-59). My mother was friendly with Dot.and told her about Olney Friends School, a boarding school in Ohio where my mother went and where I was planning to go, so Tom also attended, which then led to his being an exchange student in Germany for a year. Thank you. Gerry Grant GeraldBGrant@aol.com
