Bio and Links
Bio Photo Updated November 2016:

Please understand that I am a volunteer, this is my hobby. My personal life comes first. Time is of the essence and I try to update request at least once a month. Please send your request and I will do my best to correct, request a merge or transfer the memorial to you.

For edits to memorials

Find A Grave memorials are to be viewed as works in progress. As the manager of the memorial, I am always excited to receive and post new information as it is presented to you. Please notify me of any changes or request for the memorials via; edits, wall messages or email.

For duplicate memorials

I never deliberately create duplicate memorials, however mistakes can happen. Please contact me or send the information to for a merge. According to Find A Grave Policy, a memorial with a correct known burial location will always be preferred over an unknown burial location. A member has thirty days to update the memorial to the correct burial location on recent deaths. If a case of duplicate memorials falls to the Administration, the Administration will have the final word on which memorial is deleted and which data will be retained in the remaining memorial page.

What about the privacy of living family members?

An individual's right to privacy disappears when they are deceased. The opinions of the relatives of the deceased fall on all sides of the question. Some people are angry to find a loved one when they come to Find A Grave, even if the memorial was added by another relative, as is usually the case, and some people are elated and send us notes of thanks for building an online memorial to their family member. If an immediate family member contacts us and wants information removed, we generally do so as a matter of respect for their wishes but we treat each request on a case by case basis. The names of living survivors will be removed from the biography section of a memorial upon request.

Request for transfers

First, Determine if you really need the memorial transferred to you for management. Only request transferring of management if you have extensive changes to make to a memorial. You can add photos and suggest corrections without having to request management. Simply having someone in your family tree is not grounds for a management transfer request. With hundreds of thousands of contributors, we have many overlapping family trees and it would be impossible for all contributors to manage their entire tree.
Second, Transfer requests will be for direct relatives within four generations. This would be your siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.
Third, If you have extensive additions/changes to make to a memorial, please contact the Find A Grave member who created the memorial via the "Suggest a Correction" link under the "Edit" tab on the memorial in question with your request to have the memorial management transferred to you. This will send an email request to the contributor, even if there is not an email address listed on their contributor page.
Fourth, Explain your relationship in the request! Any non-direct relatives (aunts, uncles, cousins, etc) are not required to be transferred. Keep in mind that the original contributor may also be related to the memorial and may not make the transfer. Again, always include your relationship to the memorial on a transfer request, in order for it to be considered. You may also want to include your specific interest in the memorial. Bulk surname requests must not be made. Be advised that memorials listed as famous or maintained by Find A Grave will not be transferred.
Fifth, The "Suggest a correction" feature may also be used to submit corrections, an original biography, and family links to memorials that do not fall under the above definition. (Be sure to include the memorial ID#s for the family links and how they are related, father, mother or spouse. The original contributor will make any corrections and add any additional information you have for that memorial, such as links to parents and spouses, provided the information is accurate.
Sixth, Please note that it is not appropriate to request a transfer and then, after receiving the transfer, delete that page and substitute it with a new memorial that you have created. This practice denies credit to the original contributor. Please use the original memorial page to make updates and add information.

RE: Morgan, Kershaw County
Thanks for the additional Morgan Info. Daddy always told me that they came from Sanford NC, thus his first name, Sanford. I will incorporate this info and see if I can expand it. May be worth a trip to Sanford and their court house and achieves.
You do have a vivid memory of Ruth and Curtis' farm.
Daddy and Curtis were in the CCC together, I don't think I knew what Curtis' job was, Daddy was a truck driver, when they built Sesqui. their camp was located on the opposite side of #1 Highway in the vicinity of the Clemson Experimental Station. Not sure if it is still there, but there used to be a pine thicket that they set out. when the WPA was cancelled and the CCC ended, the camp became an old folks home.
Do you remember Bennie, Ruth and Curtis son, he and I ran around together until I went into the Army. After he and Judy married and I returned home, they came to Fort Benning ,Ga., to visit. This was just before their son, Jr. and our son Jr. was born. Lots of Blaney and Lugoff memories.
Please keep in touch, your recollections stirs a lot of memories for an old man.

RE: Morgan, Kershaw County
Thanks for the response. As you have learned, genealogy has become a money making resource for a lot of folks and government entities. The folks in Camden told me they had to charge, for what is considered public information, because the huge demand and their shortage of manpower.
Now I realize how we are related. My father Sanford Cook was Daisy and Sam Cook's baby boy. He and I dug the graves for Uncle Jack and Aunt Alice at Union Baptist in TookeDoo, as well as several family members buried there. And you are right about Curtis and Ruth being founders of Hillcrest Baptist. Most of the folks buried at Union and Hillcrest are related to us. You Referred to Katie Mcdonald, I have found it spelled several different ways, on her tombstone it is spelled McDonall.
When I was young our Sunday afternoons were spent at Uncle Jack and Curtis's homes. We always had to take Ellie a new pair of sunglasses.
I have turned every rock I could fine seeking family of the Morgans and Cooks from Blaney. I have been told that when Sherman marched out of Columbia, he went through Camden and burned all the official records in the court house, which makes sense based on all recorded history of his "Scorched Earth March To The Sea".
I'll keep digging and let you know if I find additional history. Thanks Again for the response.

Morgan, Kershaw County
Amanda, Just wondering if you have had any recent luck with the Morgan family in Kershaw family.
I spent time in the court house and achieves in Camden with no luck. Their micro film is very poor and over the years has become very disorganized.
I am a member of the Blaney--Elgin Museum and Historical Commission. I was at a meeting in Blaney recently, with a lot of the older members. None of them could remember the Morgans.
Just thought I would ask since you seem to be fairly busy with your research.

duplicates for Tommy C Thompson
I have found 2 for Tommy C Thompson 1952-2009 yours #108006604 done in 2009 in New Hope Cemetery in Hickman County and you added the obit but there is no headstone. The other 108006604 is in Old New Hope Pinkerton Cemetery in Williamson County and has a pic of the headstone. That one was done in 2013. I did send this message to the other contributor too. I am working my family line and he is a very distant rel. But I do believe it is the same person. So don't want transfer
