Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been working on family history now for 36 years. I am originally from Lancaster, SC now residing in Columbia, SC. I have travelled the country looking for grave sites related to Youngs, Steeles/Steels, Heglers, Williams, Stewmans, Dentons, McCains, Blackmons, Stogners, Finchers, Manns, Lowerys, Hartsells, Miskelleys, Catoes, McManus', McAteers and others. Any information on any of these families will always be appreciated. Thanks to all those who have been so great at helping and transferring and leading me to the right places to get the family together. (Sorry if I ask for the aunts, uncles, cousins, the great aunts and great uncles and the such. They are family and if you are not related I don't understand the problem.) I do not mind transferring any memorial that I've created that is not in my family group(except for spouses) Please email or leave a public message, Thanks ever so much again. PS- an occasional statement has been made about the number of memorials managed vs created. I have requested to manage a number of memorials of a family member who passed away in order to keep the work up on the family history.

She was married to her second husband, Charlie Ray Smith, his mother Estelle Tilley Smith is also buried in this cemetery. I believe my mother and daughter met you some years ago. contact me at if you need additional information. I hope you're doing well.

RE: McCains/Steeles
Then we must be kin. How do you connect to J.D.C., Ida, and Emma Steele McCain? Do you have a family genealogy posted?
Cordially, Donna McCain Ozenne

McCain memorials
You are listed as managing the memorials of James Dallas Coleman McCain and his wife, Ida Emma Mosley McCain. Additionally, you list Emma Jane Elvira Steel McCain, my great grandmother. I would like to ask you to transfer these memorials to me, if you please.

I am not a relation, though wanted you to know Memorial# 113992663 was linked up with his family today. I see you manage his family members that are at Pleasant Grove Cemetery. I have been working on the lineages of those at that cemetery. Here is an ancestry link to that. If you don't have access, and want access, let me know.

RE: Barfields
Robert, I just emailed you a private email. By the way, here is the Find A Grave link to Martha's gravesite at the Pisgah Baptist Church in Kershaw:
There is another, page for this M.J. Barfield gravesite, by Jim Burke, mistakenly showing her husband to be J.S. Barfield...but this is her son, John S. Barfield. She could not be buried with her husband John McKinley Barfield, because he was killed in the Civil War and is buried in the Confederate Mound at Petersburg, VA.

RE: Barfields
Hey Robert, thanks for the reply. I appreciate the hospitality but you don't have to call me sir or 'mam, but for the record I am a sir. My ancestry account is my wife's Deb, but I use her account for my tree.
I received the information on Fleming, from Martha Jane Barfield's death certificate which is available online. You should be able to view my Barfield tree, and you can go check out the profiles and the information I have. If you are not able to view it, let me know.
As far as the burial at sea thing...yes, the link to your "Find A Grave" page for Fleming was classified as "Burial at sea/other" or some such thing.
Thanks again,
Tracy Barfield

RE: Youngs
Hi Robert,

I hate to keep bugging you, so if I am let me know, it won't hurt my feelings. I promise. I talked to my " know it all sister " and she told me that the man we knew as Uncle Jud was indeed named Clyde Judson Hindman. He also passed away in 2012 and he also worked at DuPont for awhile later in life. She thought he was the police chief in Fort Lawn, but knew he was an officer of some type. He was indeed married to a woman named Pat, but didn't know her full name and thought that she had a daughter prior to marring Jud. She also said that she remembered that she was pretty sure Jud had a brother by the name of Johnny Hindman. Pat apparently passed away before Jud according to my sister and Chuck was a nickname for Clyde Judson Hindman as well. She wasn't too sure about Jr. or if Chuck was a " III rd "or not. Tammy was the oldest and her name is actually Tamala Jane Hindman. Shannon was the youngest and she wasn't sure what his full name was. I think he is two years younger than me, so he would be about 42.

As far as the Lucas family, there where 12 brothers and sisters total. She was sure that Eva Mae was the oldest and Shelvadean was the baby. Our Mom was next to the last. We think that our mother was about 15 when our Grand mother passed away. He, Charles Lucas remarried , but had no more children.She thinks this is the correct order, but not real sure. I will list them as Lucas' to keep it simple

They are Eva Mea Lucas who lived in Lando,Pauline or Polly Lucas who we think lived in Greenville,, Banks Lucas which I think is Charles or Charlie Lucas, Uncle Tug, which we both didn't know his official name right off hand , William Lyle Lucas all of whom lived in Great Falls, Aunt Nell, Aunt Jean or Eujeana Lucas who lives in Fort a Lawn now, Aulton Roscoe Lucas who was married to a nice lady named Macie , Aunt Genny , Aunt Wayne who actually is named Shirley Wynn, Caroline JoAnn Lucas, and Shelvadean of Fort Lawn. Caroline JoAnn Lucas was our mom and she is buried at Greenlawn Cemetery.

She said that our mother was tricky as she was listed in three or four ways, that's my mom I guess, the tricky one. My sister said it could be either Caroline JoAnn, Joann, Jo Ann, or she may be listed with the last name of Robinson, her first husband and my sisters real Dad, she's my half Sister, they had two children, Robert Reeves Robinson (deceased) and Robin Renee Robinson. Robin is the one giving me this info. After their Dad passed away, she married my Dad, James Curry Young Jr., who was married before to a Vivian Tyson. They had three children, Tony, Timothy and a daughter named Gail. They devorced and he married my Mom and I was the only child of that marriage. After my father passed away, we moved to Norfolk where she lived with and finally married a Clarence E. Sanders they had no kids together.So that's a lot of info to process.

She is going to send me some stuff she has paid someone to search for her, mostly looking for stuff on her Dads side. But she has all of their (The Lucas') full birth names and Baptismal records.

I am not sure if this is intriguing information to you or if it conflicts with what you have. When I get the stuff she is sending me, I'll send you a copy to your private "Texas" email address.

Hope all is well and I'll let you ponder over this info more if your interested. Robin is driving to Fort Lawn tomorrow to take Aunt Wayne to the Dr. so she,Aunt Wayne,would know more about the Hindman's.

Well I'll let you rack your brain over this if you want to, I thought maybe this info might help you out. I don't want you to think that I am trying to get you to do all the work here, that is not my intention at all, this started out mostly because your last name is "Young " and I thought maybe we where or are somehow related. Especially since you have photographed so many of my family members and created pages for them as well. I so appreciate your passion for doing so. Like I mentioned, if you need any photos from this area, just let me know, I have free time and like road trips. Sounds like you have covered the area, but I am willing to travel outward quite aways even if I don't find anything.

Talk at you later and have a good week. I'll get back with you in the next few days.
