MARY KITCHENS This person is buried at Beulah Baptist Church Cemetery on Neal Shoals Road in Union County, SC.
I am working on her profile for a family tree. I have requested a photo of her grave marker, but as yet the request has not been fulfilled. I am seeking some kind of verification of her dates of birth and death. There is no record of death in South Carolina databases if it occurred in 1895. Her year of birth varies on the 1850, 1860, 1870, and 1880 censuses and there are a number of people with her same first and maiden name.
The Memorial # is 8652908. She was married to Charles Elihu Kitchens who is also buried in the same cemetery. Her maiden name is Sweat or Sweet. I would like to know the source of the date of birth shown on the memorial as December 23, 1830, and the date of death shown as December 2, 1895. Can you provide this?
In the future, I will probably make some corrections to the memorial page and linking other relatives from my tree that connect with her. If or when her parents are determined, I would like to add them and have her full and complete name on the page. There is probably no record, either death certificate, obituary, or record of birth/death that can be located since it would be from the 19th century, especially nothing that is available from online databases such as Ancestry.com.
Mary Kitchens is the mother of the person in my family tree research, Henry Jackson Kitchens, and he is the ancestor of a branch of Kitchens that have living descendants down 4 or 5 generations.
Lula E (?) Key Would you please add to her children the son Cleo Webb Key (1904-1977) Also would you add Lula's maiden name Stevenson. Please list her as the daughter of Thomas Henry Stevenson and Rosa Cromer Stevenson.
