Bio and Links
Bio Photo We are David & Effie. We were born and raised in upstate South Carolina. I found Find A Grave in 2009 and now David has joined me in a search for our "lost" family members. We sincerely hope that along the way our contributions to this site will help others find theirs.

We wish to thank those who have made memorials for our family members and those who have transfered management of them to us. We especially want to thank those who have made the corrections we requested, as correct and complete data is the key to accomplishing our goals.

Our primary sources of information for our memorials, other than direct knowledge of burial, are grave marker photos and obituaries. We use these sources as backup for our entries, as we DO NOT make any without proof of burial location.

Our motto is... to err is human, and to correct is necessary. Please contact us if you find an error on our memorials or if you have missing information that we can add to make an appealing and honorable memorial. We will gladly correct any errors on our entries, make additions, add links or transfer memorials if they are not related to us. (please use the EDIT tab and make a suggestion option on the memorial for any request.)

We understand that a photo says more than a thousand words, and is a very important part of family research. It is our pleasure to offer our photos for personal genealogical purposes. You may re-post on Find A Grave if you will have the courtesy to give us credit in the caption of the photo. Otherwise, DO NOT RE-POST!

Everyone is welcome to visit and leave a flower for our immediate family members listed below or any of our memorials and once again, we wish to thank all of our Find A Grave friends who have done a wonderful job in helping preserve our heritage and making this a wonderful site.

Juliet Melinda Plemmons Milliken
I am the great granddaughter of Juliet Melinda Plemmons Milliken, wife of Thomas Lebo Milliken of Clyde, NC.

I have Juliet's obituary from April 1942 which states funeral services would be conducted at Lyman Baptist Church with burial in Bethel Cemetery, Woodruff.

I cannot find her grave marker or record of such anywhere on Find A Grave website.

Can you help me? Thank you for your time!

Inquiry for Grave Marker/Information

I am working on genealogy for my maternal line and have been stumped for awhile about my great grandfather. His name was Claud Henson and the only information I've been able to find so far about his family is that his father was John Henson and his mother was Lillie Henson (as listed on his death certificate). It said they were born in NC and were buried in Oak Grove Cemetery. You can't imagine how many Oak Grove Cemeteries there are in NC and SC. :-)

So I found your contributions for JP Henson and Lillie Smith Henson for Oak Grove Cemetery in Spartanburg and was hoping that maybe you might be able to locate one for Claud Lee Henson, born on July 1, 1884 in SC and died on March 7, 1884 in SC. He was supposed to be buried in Oak Grove as well. He was married to Francis Leila Forrester if that helps.

I appreciate any assistance you can provide with this.

Best regards,

Annie Hewiit Lybrand
Hello! I noticed that you put up a site for Annie Hewitt Lybrand. I am putting together my family ancestry tree and noticed that it was stated she was the last of her siblings and that there were 4 brothers and 1 sister. I have only 3 brothers listed: James W., Roy E. and Frank M. and her sister Patricia. Do you know who the other brother is/was? I appreciate your help!!
