Bio and Links
Bio Photo I encountered the website quite by accident while researching family members. Immediately I recognized the value of this resource for future generations.

I have been reluctant to readily discard family histories encompassed in the vast collection of funeral programs acquired through years. Find A Grave affords a perfect opportunity to share the valuable information contained in these documents.

My goal is to share accurate data as recorded in these documents or from my personal knowledge in hope that it will be helpful to others.

Current geneaological focus is on descendants of (1) Antrum Lesesne (Nero Lesesne, Derry Lesesne/ Lesane, Abram Plowden, Effie/Affie Plowden, Titus Abraham) and (2) Luke & Sarah Davis of South Carollina (Sumter and Clarendon counties).

Hi Mary, you have placed a photo under "Grave" of her. Please remove.

As for photos, you should only place photo of people that you originally own, not funeral home obit photos.

Mary...Thank you for sharing the edit info, and the photo of her is wonderful. As you probably know it takes about 4-6 wks for headstones to be in place but its on my 'to take' list & I watch for it and then we'll have a perfect memorial for her. Again, many thanks...Roberta

re: William Cain
I am sure that you have the wrong date entered as his birth year, as you have 1015. His memorial is #111117200 .... thanks!

Hi. I believe you posted the picture and info for my great great grandfather and was wondering if you had anymore information? I believe Susan Green was his wife. I hope I'm right this is so exciting! Just working on my family tree.

RE: Find A Grave Correction: Lillie Brown
Thank you so much for getting back to me so quickly! Just hang tight on any changes until I get positive documentation as I'm just not sure. I'll send changes via the edit tab when I'm more confident and talk more with family.

Thanks again,
