|Bio and Links|
I am a South Carolina native with family roots primarily in Berkeley and Spartanburg Counties, as well as in Forsyth County, Georgia. My husband's heritage lies mainly in Polk and Rutherford Counties, North Carolina. |
I admit that I am a late bloomer in regard to researching the history of my ancestors. I've always been curious, but now I have become addicted - and absolutely love it! It's a very challenging, and oftentimes confusing, puzzle . . . finding, sorting, and connecting the many, many pieces.
A newcomer to Find-A-Grave, this is my contribution ... in a small way ... to remember and honor those in our family who were here before us, and hopefully help those who follow us.
I believe that everyone should be remembered and in everyone having a nicely written, respectable memorial. I try to give that familial touch to each memorial I add, when possible. While I often work with obituaries, I do not cut and paste verbatim, but always try to tweak each one a little to make for a personal, more interesting memorial.
My primary focus is on the family names of Ballenger, Tallant, Bell, Scott, Horne, Putnam, Jackson, and Constance. Currently I am in the process of photographing and adding memorials for all the gravesites at Mill Creek Church of the Brethren in Green Creek, Polk County, North Carolina.
To Err Is Human, To Correct Divine. If you come across any errors or have additions to the memorials I have created, please let me know. I strive to provide accurate information and will be happy to make any changes necessary.
Lastly, a few thoughts on genealogy . . .
The wise man must remember that while he is a descendant of the past, he is a parent of the future. . . Herbert Spencer
Nothing makes our ancestors seem more real than to walk where they walked and to stand where they finally came to rest.
Our most treasured family heirlooms are our sweet family memories. . . Unknown

Hi! I am happy to make the transfer over to you. Please let me know if there is anything else I can help you with and have a great day!
|Amy Gilliam Staggs||Thank you so much....|
I was looking to see if my grandfather left behind any cemetery plots that would need to be included in my Dad's estate, and I found where you had loaded his obituary a few days after his passing last year. Although it breaks my heart he is gone, it absolutely made my day to find such a loving record for David Dolian Gilliam, and to have it linked to his mom and dad! I just wanted to drop you a note to thank you for doing this. What a wonderful and selfless way to make things better and easier for others that will last for years to come.
Thank you again,
Amy Gilliam Staggs

Just an fyi The cherokee County hospital has been moving between hospital systems for the last few years. At present Mary Black has bought the cherokee County hospital and it is part of the Mary Black Hospital Systems. It was Previously owned by Novant of Charlotte NC. Mary Black is expanding into Greenville county as well.
There are limits on how close they can move into the Greenville County Hospital but dont know exactly how close the boundaries are.
It is making it harder to tell which county someone dies in. If it says Gaffney and Mary Black Hospital systems it would be cherokee County. If it states area in Greenville and Mary Black systems it will be Greenville County. They arent making this easy on findgravers and genealogists. Only reason we know is we have a good friend who just went back to mary Black from cherokee county and she lost her time. If she had waited a few months she could have transferred to Mary black without loosing her time. DOnt know if Cherokee county will be sold again.. This is kinda New for this area.
Thanks for all you do in Findagrave. PS do you know how to merge files in findagrave when duplicates. I saw on that stated merged and i am still trying to figure out how it was done :) Thanks Linda

He was not married at the time of his death. That part of his obituary is wrong. Betty Ham was his first wife. If you could change that we would appreciate that. We just want it to be right.

Can you tell me where you got the obituary? This obituary is different from the orginal obituary.
