Bio and Links
I have been doing genealogy since 2002. I initially started by posting memorials of family members, but now I post any grave I find that is not already here. I love to help others in their quest for family.

Names I am researching: Farmer, Swayngham, Harvell, Hale, Stamps, Reece, Aiken, Dorr, Singleton, Durrett, Owen, Stephens, Galloway, Snow and Crane.

Husband's family: Connett, Heidt, Gosa, Deatherage, Hendricks, Lane, Jolly, Scroggins, Hand and Salter.

RE: Mamie Galloway Hendricks - mother Lela
I pulled Lela Galloway's obit from the Easley Progress microfilm today, and it said her mother was Sarah Jane Garren Galloway, which I believe is wrong - records point to it being Mary Jane Garren Galloway as you have indicated. Her obit in that paper stated burial in "West View Cemetery" without clarifying it to be in the one in Liberty or the one in Easley, but I have no reason to think it's any other than the one in Liberty due to the amount of her family buried there in marked graves, as well as her husband's death certificate stating it's the one in Liberty. I've added her entry to Find A Grave based on that obit here:

Her death certificate won't be available free until 2019 (and the index will take the state YEARS to complete allowing you to locate it on the microfilm anyway!) - I plan to pull Orlonzo's obit on my next trip to the Greenville Library, and I'll pull Lela's also just in case it's a little more complete than the one in the Easley Progress.

Again, I'll look for those graves in the sections where their children are buried, on the next pretty day I have off to see if I just missed them during my row mowing back in 2011/2012. You never know!!!

Thanks, Karyn

RE: Mamie Galloway Hendricks
Apparently her parents are Orlonzo Simms Galloway (O.S.) and his wife Leila Galloway (maiden name unknown currently) - I went looking for her father on Find A Grave and located a death certificate stating he was buried in West View Cemetery in Liberty, same as Mamie and another daughter Olivia. I've been all through that cemetery and never found marked graves for these parents but the death certificate states he's buried there, so I added his entry. Going to do some more research looking for Leila/Lela as well. There is a lot of open ground in the cemetery plot where Olivia Galloway Hughes is buried, so it's possible Orlonzo and possibly Leila/Lela are buried near her and the graves never got marked. Next pretty day I have off I'll go out and look around in that section just in case I missed their graves. I would be surprised to find them at this point, though.

Olivia Galloway Hughes:

Will let you know what I find out. May try to get by the library and pull his obituary next free day I have. Looking for hers as well.

Thanks, Karyn

RE: Mamie Galloway Hendricks
I pulled Mamie's death certificate and the parents are listed as Alonzo & Leila Galloway, so I've unlinked her and will get her linked to the right family. Not sure where that wrong information came from at this point. Thanks for the tip!!

RE: Gordan Chapman
Go to Old Toxaway Baptist Church Cemetery, name Buren Sylvester Chapman, read what Patty has posted, and where she found her information. We were sad when they took this website down, had lots of good information on families in Henderson and Transylvania Counties., has Gordon Chapman listed as a son for Buren Sylvester Chapman. If you find I am not correct let me know and I will be happy to remove my posting.
Have a Blessed Thanksgiving. We have so much to be thankful for.
Love in Christ,

Gordon Chapman
Thank you, I appreciate your writing. I think there were two Gordon Chapman. One was born on 9-20-1902 and the other one born on 4-22-1902, his full name was Esper Gordon Chapman, son of Edward Guss Chapman and Netter Jarrett Chapman. I added his name and have linked to his parents. His Death Certificate said he was buried at Old Toxaway Cemetery, Rosman, North Carolina.
Thank you again,

Sorry that I did not put this in the first message
Jay Roy is listed as a child
He is not Charley Mae's son
He belongs to her husband and his second wife
Thanks again for your selfless time and energy
