Bio and Links
Bio Photo My name is George Muse Gaston and for the last many years I have been tracing my family ancestors by walking through old family cemeteries and checking with county registers where known relatives have lived. It all started when I was nine or ten, helping a 1st cousin on my father's side of the family. For several weeks "Aunt Puddie", as she was known lovingly by the family, and I would head out early in the morning searching for old grave stones from Savannah to Edgefield, South Carolina. I can't remember who we were looking for, but I learned a lot about our family and the social history of the South.

Family ancestors that I am researching are: Gaston, Muse, Devlin, McKell, Bell, Montgomery, Pressly, Alston, Glenn, Flenniken, Moore, Weir, Goode, Greneker, Calhoun, Dickinson, Service, Barnhill, Boykin, Wilkinson, Nicholson, Howard, Howell, Witherspoon, Schley, Snellings, Lankford, Kyte, Kimball and Kerr. Find-a-Grave has been invaluable with my journey.

You'll see many entries here from the old family church, Cedar Springs Associate Reformed Presbyterian Church (1780) in Abbeville County, South Carolina. I have fond memories of going there as a child and having "dinner on the grounds" after Sunday services. Here I have many relatives and always enjoy stopping by and having a long visit when I am in the area.

Since joining "find-a-grave" I have met many wonderful people and appreciate their help in my never ending search of ancestors past. If I can be of help to you in your searches, please email and I will try my best to assist.

RE: Christopher & Jane [Gillespie] Graham
Thank you George for those kind words. From what I've seen, you have contributed in a big way to the effort. I am still working on the Third Creek Presbyterian list. We thought we had it finished and discovered differently last week when I was looking for one of my husband's ancestors at Third Creek. He has family there from his mother and dad back to Knoxes, Grahams, Griffiths, Cowans, and many others.

As you can see, we have a special interest in this cemetery as well as Old Fourth Creek, Iredell; Society Baptist, Davie; Fifth Creek, Iredell; and several others including FBC, Cleveland, where grandparents--Steeles and Guffys are located.

Thanks for your contributions. It's great to have generous fellow volunteers.

Thank you George. I have a copy of the obituary that was in the Aiken Standard, but I had not seen The State's copy. I appreciate you adding the newspaper copy. It will be helpful to many people searching this hard to find Clark family. Bonnie
