Bio and Links
Bio Photo My name is Tonya Sapp Hames. I was born & raised in Laurens, SC & lived there for 25 years. I now live in Ladson, SC, with my husband, Stephen, and son, Christian.

I stumbled upon FAG by accident when I Googled my father, Robert E. Sapp, who passed away in 1991 & his name came up on this website. I have always been fascinated by genealogy. I have mostly been researching the following family names: Sapp, Nelson, Moore, Helms, Ball, Story, Belk, Kell, Woody, Fuller, Campbell, Richards, Myers, & Taylor; along with Hames, Crowder, Gregory, Kirkley, & West. However, along the way I have been doing other genealogy work as well. I am a FAG County Keeper emeritus for Dorchester Co., SC.

If you have any information that may help me with my research, please feel free to contact me. Also, when reviewing any of my work, if you see that I have made any error, no matter how large or small, please do not hesitate to contact me & let me know. I will ask, that when contacting me, you please do so in a respectful manner & allow for the corrections to be made. As FAG is NOT my full-time job, I do NOT work on my FAG information everyday, therefore, quick fix items will be taken care of in a more timely manner than other items which may take more research to complete.

Here are some VERY helpful links while utilizing

eternal flame
I do not know margarete Hutchinson Burch or
Louisa Matilda Hutchinson DeShields. i tried to find them, but they aren't in South Carolina. What name do you pull them up by? Also, are you sure I added the flame or maybe someone copied it and is using it. Truly - I do not know these two Hutchinsons, or if I do it is by other names. Let me know how to access them.

RE: James Hutchinson
I removed the photo of the eternal flame - however, since it has no photos on the James Hutchinson site, did it really require 5 emails to ask me to remove it? all on the same day? Careful - the old Hutchinson impatience is showing...

"Shrewsbury" is misspelled in Amelia's name therefor she does not appear on a "shrewsbury" search.
