RE: Transfer
Wow bummer. Hope you can recover. I can imagine the time and energy spent to accumalate the photos. Yes do, if you ever get them recovered I would be very interested, and if you do make it to Smyrna I would also be interested in them too.

Such a nice job you do and it is greatly appreciated.

RE: Transfer
Thank you again Donna.

I am not sure if you would be willing, but I have alot of family from Marlboro County.
The names are Swett, Sweatt, Radford, Taylor, Peele to name a few.
The cemeteries are Smyrna Methodist Church Cemetery, New Hope Cemetery, Old Ebenezer Methodist Church Cemetery.
I would be willing to send you a prepaid envelope if you can provide me photos from those cemeteries and I can look through them.
