Bio and Links
Bio Photo Find a Grave has been helpful to me in my research and I would like to return the favor. If I have created a memorial for a relative I will transfer at your request.I welcome corrections for any errors I've made.


Sometimes God picks the flower
That is still in bloom
Sometimes the rosebud's chosen
That we feel He's picked too soon
Sometimes the flower is fading
With petals floating down
But God knows the perfect time
To gather flowers from the ground
There is a heavenly garden
In which God takes great pleasure
Because He's placed within it
The loved ones that we treasure
He walks among the blossoms
Giving them eternal rest
And I know that it must please him
Because He chose our very best.

RE: John Buck, Rock Hill
I was merely referring to Jan 7 being 7 days past the estimated year that is on the gravestone.

Thanks for your great work in this cemetery. I have several distant relatives here and was just passing some time researching some of the folks buried here so their memorials could be a little more informative.

RE: Carl Alsobrook, Poynor
I will send a request to find a grave to merge the 2 memorials so no info is lost. Thanks, Slick

RE: George Dixon
Thank you Wayne for transferring George Dixon to me. Yes that is a good picture of George. I just recently came into possession of that picture and a picture of his wife Ada Bell Dixon.
Thanks again.

RE: Neills, New York
Thank you for responding especially since I realized after the fact that I had contacted you previously regarding this memorial. Unfortunately, I didn't have time to go to the cemetery but will return again. I live in College Station but I have a son who lives off FM 314 in Brownsboro - I visit as often as possible.

Re: Oleta Bragg
I didn't do one for her, and didn't see another memorial for her besides yours on the Rock Hill list. Hope all is well.

RE: Venables, Edom, Red Hill
Forgive me for not getting back sooner, but my loving husband of 52 years had been sick for a long time and went home to be with the Lord on January 23 and I am just getting around to my emails.
Thank you for the offer, but I believe that I have added about as much as I know about this Venable family. Hugh Venable was a brother to my great-grandfather, Oliver Venable, Sr. You are much younger than I and your chances of being around to maintain and/or transfer to closer relatives are better than mine!! I will probably run into more memorials that need to be updated and our paths will surely cross again. You are kind to make this offer and I sincerely appreciate all you do for Find-A-Grave, specially my ancestors. ...God Bless...
