Bio and Links
Bio Photo We are David & Effie. We were born and raised in upstate South Carolina. I found Find A Grave in 2009 and now David has joined me in a search for our "lost" family members. We sincerely hope that along the way our contributions to this site will help others find theirs.

We wish to thank those who have made memorials for our family members and those who have transfered management of them to us. We especially want to thank those who have made the corrections we requested, as correct and complete data is the key to accomplishing our goals.

Our primary sources of information for our memorials, other than direct knowledge of burial, are grave marker photos and obituaries. We use these sources as backup for our entries, as we DO NOT make any without proof of burial location.

Our motto is... to err is human, and to correct is necessary. Please contact us if you find an error on our memorials or if you have missing information that we can add to make an appealing and honorable memorial. We will gladly correct any errors on our entries, make additions, add links or transfer memorials if they are not related to us. (please use the EDIT tab and make a suggestion option on the memorial for any request.)

We understand that a photo says more than a thousand words, and is a very important part of family research. It is our pleasure to offer our photos for personal genealogical purposes. You may re-post on Find A Grave if you will have the courtesy to give us credit in the caption of the photo. Otherwise, DO NOT RE-POST!

Everyone is welcome to visit and leave a flower for our immediate family members listed below or any of our memorials and once again, we wish to thank all of our Find A Grave friends who have done a wonderful job in helping preserve our heritage and making this a wonderful site.

I would like to personally thank you for your work with Find A Grave. It is no longer possible for me to visit cemeteries. When I started my genealogy journey back in the80's I frequented many cemeteries. Now thanks to you and other Find A Grave friends I can visit them that way. May God richly bless you for helping others like me. It means so very much to be able to visit the graves of our extended families. I am still working hard on my family genealogy on Ancestry and Family TreeMaker and thank you for allowing me to get copies of my extended family markers.
Eleanor Morrison Lawson
PS May you be able to keep helping others through your work with Find A Grave for many years to come. It is truly a blessing to so many people.

Easter Thank You 04 03 2015

In the event that I have not thanked you, personally, for the transfers that you have provided me with, I wish to do so at this time.

My retirement from all my social and family duties have dwindled down since my health has had the opportunity to allow me to beat my God given expiration date, with the help of family, fantastic physicians and hospital, and the implantation of a pacemaker. Rest is my priority when not doing some physical duties, yet Find A Grave and family ancestry tracing is still fun.

To all my Find a Grave friends, you have all been a tremendous help with your contributions to me and especially to this site.

Happy Easter, be safe, have fun and Thank You.

Willie Andrew Smith
Sorry for the blank message. I am related to Willie Andrew Smith (memorial # 144401067). He is my great great grandmother's brother. I have a copy of his death certificate as well as a list of siblings. Do you want me to add the information or e-mail it to you? Also, do you have a photo of his stone? My ancestors buried at Asbury are Smiths and Tutherows.Thanks!
