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.

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
