Bio and Links
Bio Photo Oh my, what an undertaking we take. There are cemeteries available, just for you. Get out of the house, take the photos, enter the memorials, make the links. And for those that prefer to sit behind the computer, criticize others work, rant when others refuse to make corrections to your liking, you're wasting a lot of great times out in the fresh air, don't claim that you can't do it until you have tried it.

Thanks
Thanks for accepting the edits sent, and the memorials on direct ancestors in my research. I noticed that you have received "negative" feeds from one contributor, a contributor that won't allow comments on her lengthy page because of "negative feedback". Keep the site clean.
Many thanks again for the hard work vs the bull I see on some memorials.

Dr. Evelyn Gettys Orton
Do you know the source of her obituary that you posted on Find A Grave? We like to have the original source, whenever possible.[ My cousin, who works closely wit me has a Master's Degree in research librarianship from USC, so he likes that source material]. Either way, thank you for posting it. I live in south GA, so it is a 6 hour trip for me to go to the cemeteries or the Archives to search for obits.

As I answered one email that the person was angry that I had put the full name instead of the initials that were on the stone "you are welcome to come, photo the stones, as I have done -in the snow and in Aug of one year--you are always welcome". Judy

Hey Don, Louranah Truluck was my GG Grandmother and up until recently I had not seen the Pigate name. Would appreciate any information concerning this.
Thank you,

Findagrave reminder
Please only add headstone photo or photos of the person in the memorial photo area. Overview shots of the cemetery should not be added in this area on memorial pages. Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.

Turning down edits
I'm not sure why you're turning down my edits either. I've been reading your public messages, and it seems that you do it to a lot of people. You keep doing it to me almost every time I send you something. You just turned down one for Gilbert M. Sutton (98717032), that I sent his middle name to you, Monroe, but you said it conflicts with your data. Well, if you click on his wife's name, and look at her obit, his middle name is right there. Seems like you are too quick to click Don't Accept. I'm not making up names or connections between people. I'm actually researching and gathering info from obits, gravestones, and death certificates, but you still say it conflicts with your data. Maybe your data needs to be updated some. I'm sorry that you happen to be the one that owns most of the cemeteries where a lot of my family members are or could be, and that I have to keep sending you edits. But it seems like every time I do, you don't really go look and see if you can tell where I got the info from. You just decline them. And I don't understand why. If you don't want to take the time to see if you can find the "new" info, then maybe you should start transferring pages to people that are sending you the edits that you keep turning down without checking to see if you can find the reason why the edits were sent in the first place. I've also noticed that you'll turn down edits, but yet when I go check and see why, you end up making the changes sometimes anyway, even after you have turned down the edit. It's like you don't want to give anyone else any credit for connecting the memorial pages that you own together. It's not like it shows that one person connected the mother, and another person connected the father, and so on. It doesn't show the names of the people that send in edits. So you're getting credit because you own the pages, no matter who is doing the connecting or editing. All you have to do is click Accept or Don't Accept. And it seems like you don't like to click on the Accept button, just because you don't want to, I guess. Maybe you're putting too many pages up at a time, and you can't keep up with them or take the time to find more info on them besides part of a name and a cemetery. It's like you won't let anything else be added for some reason. I would think you'd be happy that other people are trying to help by sending you edits. But it's almost like you're offended when someone does. Sorry if this sounds mean, but it feels to me that you are being mean by simply declining edits without even checking. Am I wrong?

RE: Juanita Perritt
Great! I see that you found them both. Seems I had the names a bit off, or incomplete. Jehue's name comes from a bunch of city directory listings, but I guess he was called Hugh. What you have looks correct. The 1930 AND the 1940 censuses were both in Columbia, Richland, South Carolina. 1930: father transcribed as Johne Stanely, mom as Mande Stanely. Good detective work!

RE: Juanita Perritt
Hi,
I believe the father's name was Jehue L Stanley b. abt 1856 and the mother was Maude (maiden name unknown)b. abt 1888. I do not find memorials for either of them. Juanita appears with both of them on the 1930 census, then only with her husband (Travis Perritt) and her mother (Maude) on the 1940 census.

Jane Rembert Barrett
In 1900 the census lists her age as 85 yo. She was living with her daughter in Bishopville, SC ( Sumter or Lee which ever you prefer). She died the next year. I am guessing that at the moment she died she was in Bishopville. Her daughter died 6 yrs later. Its hard to know the exact location since death certificates were not issued at that time. Her age is also a little different as is seen so often in census records. I have no doubt that this is Jane Rembert daughter of James and Elizabeth Burkett Rembert. Given the history of the Rembert family living in and around Bishopville and that a Jane Rembert married Benjamin J Barrett and is found living in Bishopville with her husband all her life I think the evidence is clear. The Rembert family had a hand in building this church and were active in the Methodist movement in the south. I will resubmit her parents information if you agree and I will accept any evidence to the contrary.
Thanks, Jenny Disque
