Bio and Links
Bio Photo Although I was born in Orangeburg, SC, I was raised in Bristol, TN until moving to Charleston, SC in 1966 and remaining there until the present. I was blessed to have grandparents who lived into their nineties and were sharp as tacks as to their memories.

My mother is from Dunean, Greenville, SC and my father was from Woodside, Greenville, SC. All of my ancestors are from the upper state of SC and some include the following: WOOD, SUTTLES, YOUNG, HITT, HUNT, HESTER, BURNETT, SMITH, GREER, KILGORE, RAINES, DILLARD, RAY, RODDY, HENDRIX, PRIDMORE, GEORGE, CLEMENT, WALL, CANTRELL, LOVELACE, ETC. AND ETC. I am sorry that I had originally registered as a photo volunteer, but I cannot do it due to my health. But I will post pictures that take while doing research. Thank you.

I have a large database of peoples from upper South Carolina. It has grown to 27,433 people as of this morning. The paperwork is overwhelming. I would appreciate some encouragement or ideas of what you may have done when you got just a littled "tired" of genealogy.

Hello cousin
I am your 5th cousin once removed - common ancestor: Joseph Greer, born somewhere in Ireland and died before 1783 in the Old Ninety-Six District, South Carolina. Your 27,000 + relatives is a lot, but don't get discouraged!

Your site helped me to find the names of the parents of my great grandfather, Alvin J. Suttles.

Hi Rhita,
I have often seen your name and flowers left on many memorials. I just made your connection to George Riley Hitt - His mother Margaret Hunt Hitt. I would love to exchange info with you. I descend from Margaret's older brother John Henry Hunt 1833-1915. I'm searching for a picture of Margaret Hunt Hitt. I have some of her children's and so on. I maintain a website and can send you a link if you'd like.

Per your request, I have linked Mrs. Griffin's memorial to her mother's memorial on Find A Grave. Thank you for providing the information.

Was she a friend or family?

I will be happy to transfer her memorial to you if you would like. Just let me know.
