Bio and Links
Bio Photo When my father died in 1967, I realized I might be the oldest living male "Panhorst" in our family. This started my forty year investigation of our family genealogy. My primary database now contains 10,500 individuals, all related to our extended family, including brothers, sisters, uncles, aunts, and cousins for generations in both directions. Most of the data has documentation with sources duly noted. See my db on Roots WorldConnect titled "panhorst". You are welcome to contact me about any of my entries for documentation or sources.
In the last few years Find-A-Grave has taken hold. I have found Find-A-Grave and it's contributors to be a very helpful and beneficial resource. So I am only to happy to assist others. John Panhorst, Prosperity, SC

RE: Clouds Cemetery, Lexington County, SC
Hi John. Sorry but the pics I took are the only stones there. There are no other markers or stones of any kind. Only the 2 markers. One for Butler and son. The current landowner's grandmother was a DAR member and had the other stone put there. It started out as a request for Capt Sterling Turner. After quite a bit of research this is all I found. If you still need help let me know. Janet

RE: Kibler Cemetery
Oh no, that sounds truly horrendous. I thought the one I photographed a few months ago was in bad shape, but it doesn't hold a candle to what you described.

When I photographed that cemetery, I took "before & after" type photos - before & after I cleared away whatever was hiding the marker. Many were toppled over & buried under mud & brush. I also took photos from a distance to show the overall condition of the graveyard & uploaded them as cemetery photos on the Find A Grave page for the cemetery.

My cousin and I are researching how we might be able to restore it. That cemetery is located in the middle of farmed land & landlocked as well. According to the deed, when the surrounding land was transferred about an acre & a right-of-way were reserved for the cemetery. However, cemetery itself is only a quarter of an acre & whoever leases the land plants on the remaining three quarters and all the way up to within probably 10-15 feet of the monuments. Plus, there are crops planted in that field almost year round.

Before we knew about the deed, my cousin contacted the land owner about us gaining access to cemetery. He verified that he leased the land to someone else for planting. He was opposed to an easement, but said he had no problem with us crossing his property to access the cemetery - as long as we didn't disturb the crops. [I'm rolling my eyes.]

Maybe there is an organization in South Carolina interesting in the restoration of cemetery like the Kibler cemetery. Hmmm...

RE: Long Family Cemetery

I don't know how I missed this note until now, and I apologize. It appears there is only one photo request outstanding, and I doubt it can be fulfilled. Elizabeth Catherine Stairley Long is said to be buried next to her husband, George Long. But the cemetery book, 'Our Saluda County Ancestors, Vol III' does not list her (although they do mention more unmarked, field stone graves), so her stone may have long ago become unreadable.


BTW, my email is still
