Our Interest in the Findagrave come as researchers of our Family History
To bring back to memory the history of a life that was lived,
My Surname -Paternal O'Shields-Hyatt-Mayes-Smith-Black-Maternal-Riddle-Rampley-Wilson
Doris family Surname -Wilson Lusk Corbin-Smith Beck, Maternal--Rice -Moore-Pitman-Andrews-Gosnell--Shipman--Merrill--Ashworth-
all of these listed are Grandparents.
We are working to connect families together on F.A.G To make it an easy process for anyone in search of their family history. My purpose is to help.
F,A,G is the most helpful tool I have come across in doing research. I personally think it is better than D,N,A when a family member knows who is related. It can reach from State to State.
So if anyone knows where a mistake has been made please let us know. In the future I will not add family pictures to the memorial because they are being picked up by websites that want to use them for profit.

Young Cemetery - Union, SC
I have been trying to get management of several of my family cemeteries in Union County. I requested of Apomi several times to help out. There was never a response, can you folks help (I would like to add some info re. cemetery history, etc.)? Are y'all ameniable to passing along access to my family cemetery sites? Thanks, Phil Bailey (families-Humphries, Gregory, Young, Bailey, Betenbaugh, Holcombe, and many others in the area).

RE: Andrews & Pitman Family
Sorry for delay. I have been researching all sides of my family for years, at least 30 or so, way before the internet made so many things available.

George Riley Andrews Sr. was my Great Great Grandfather.
William Paul Andrews was my Great Grand Uncle.
Mary "Dovie" Andrews was my 1st cousin 2x removed.
Beatrice Rice was my 2nd cousin 1x removed.

George Riley Andrews Jr was my Great Grandfather,and brother of William P Andrews.

I have very little more than that as to information other than I believe that George Riley Sr's father was named Peter? And I have some questions about Julette Lindsay/Lindsey our Great Great Grandmother.

Cousin Cathy

Hi! I am copying in a G-Mail E-mail from Lorraine. She wasn't able to find out a whole lot about your GG Mom, but found a myriad of info about other relatives.


Pitman - Ander-Andrews!!!!

to me
I don't think I said that like I wanted too!!

Wesley Green Wise and his wife Irene Morrow Wise are buried at Tuxedo Cemetery, Henderson County, North Carolina. He is the son of John Henry Wise and Rhoda Anders Wise. Rhoda is the daughter of William Anders and Cassy Pitman Anders.

William and Cassy Pitman Anders were Wesley Green Wise, grandparents.

I have found everyone, but the one they are looking for. If a friend buried her, there probably isn't a headstone.???

Cassy Pitman, daughter of John Joshua Pitman and Elizabeth Belue Pitman. I found a couple of brothers,

Brother, Joshua Pitman, he is buried at Fairview Bap. Cemetery in Landrum, Spartanburg Co. S. C.

Brother, Jacob Pitman, he is buried at Glassy Mountain Baptist Church Cemetery, Greenville County, S. C. # 9330758

Brother, Robert Pitman, buried at Beulah Baptist Church, Mill Springs, Polk County, N. C.
Robert has a son Riley P. Pitman, buried at Mill Spring Cemetery, Polk County, N. C.

Cassy Pitman Anders and husband William Anders, daughter Rhoda Anders and her husband John Henry Wise, son Wesley Green Wise is buried at Tuxedo Cemetery, Henderson County, N. C., along with his his wife Irene Morrow Wise.

Only thing I could find on Cassey (Pittman), This is how had it spelled.

Cassey Pittman born, 1847, Greenville County, S. C. in 1880 was living at Glassy Mountain, Greenville County, S. C., married William P. Andrews, born 1850.

Parents of 5 children:
1. Joe Jesse Andrews, b. 1872
2. Rhoda Jane Andres, b. 1874
3. W. F. Andres, b. 1876
4. Lovine H. Andres, b. 1879
5. Dovie Andrews, b. 4-3-1885, d. 5-27-1935, Laurens, S. C. married John Luther Rice.
All born Greenville County, S. C.

Found a lot, but not what you needed.
I went through every cemetery in Polk County. I would say if she is burid in South Carolina it would be in Spartanburg County, but that is just a guess.
Tell them I am sorry, no luck in finding their great-grandmother.

Cassey Pitman Anders
Hi! Again! We have a good friend in Find A Grave who has a myriad of data bases that I don't have access to. I have written to Lorraine Lambert (#47307083), and if anybody can find additional info on your great grandmother, it is Lorraine. If she accepts our challenge, she will be in touch!

Cassey Pitman Andrews
Hi! I found her death certificate in and it appears her last name was ANDERS, not ANDREWS (for both she and her husband).

Here is the gist of the docuemtn:

North Carolina, Death Certificates, 1909-1975 about Edsey Anders <-----
Name: Edsey Anders
[Casey or Cassey Pittman Anders] <-----
[Casey or Cassey Pitman Anders] <-----
Gender: Female
Race: White
Age: 68
Birth Date: 29 Oct 1859
Birth Place: Greenville, South Carolina, United States
Death Date: 18 Mar 1928
Death Location: Green River, Henderson
Spouse's Name: William Anders
Father's Name: Joshey Pitman
Mother's Name: Elizabeth Belue
I did 100% photos of Holly Springs BC Cemetery in Henderson County (Little River/Penrose area).
The death certificate clearly shows she is in HOLLY SPRING, SC (not NC).

There are 4 cemeteries in SC named Holly Springs:

Holly Springs Baptist Church Cemetery
Anderson County
South Carolina
USA 4 260
Holly Springs Baptist Church Cemetery
Oconee County
South Carolina
USA 3 661
Holly Springs Baptist Church Cemetery
Spartanburg County
South Carolina
USA 3 1,575
Holly Springs Cemetery
Pickens County
South Carolina
USA 6 710

You need to determine which one might have been nearest to Tuxedo NC (or where her parents might have been buried).

Sorry I cannot be of any greater help.
