|Bio and Links|
|Since retiring in 2000 I have undertaken the task of locating graves of as many descendants as possible.|
(1) Of my mother's oldest ancestor, Jonathan Whilden, who entered Charleston 1695.
Whilden, although, essentially an unknown name now, played a historical part in the Civil War from relaying the order to fire the 1st shot of the war to leading the defense at The Bloody Angle-Spottsylvania Courthouse.
(2) Of my fathers oldest ancestor, who entered Charleston 1768 with his family from Killyleagh, County Down, Northern Ireland. Many of these migrated west to Georgia, Alabama, & Texas.
As indicated I retired in 2000, live in Lancaster, SC, have a wonderful wife of 47 years, 2 children and 2 grandchildren that like all grands I love to be obnoxious about.
Will gladly take pictures for any looking in this area.

|Fran Bundy||RE: John Paul Jones|
Excellent! Thank you.
Several of us are documenting all the graves at Tabernacle United Methodist Church. I also completed Bethel United Methodist Church, too.
Thank you again for your input. I, too, place an Unmarked Grave Picture when applicable. No need for anyone else spending time looking for a marker which does not exist.
|Fran Bundy||John Paul Jones|
Thank you for placing his obit on his memorial.
I noticed that you also indicated that he is buried in an unmarked grave. Did you try and locate a maker by chance?
Thank you again.

Hi, back in February you filled a photo request for Lee Commander Locklair, I was just doing more research and see that you also included the rest of his family. I just wanted to add a word of thanks!!
Thanks so much...
|SuzanneTF||RE: Gillam Cemetery|
I apologize for not providing more information!
It is a small cemetery in Lancaster, SC.
I saw that you had posted a couple of the images there?
I noticed that you had posted a couple of photos for this cemetery. Another volunteer is curious as to the location. Could you provide us with directions? Thank you! Also, is it on private land? If so, who would I seek permission from?
|Phillip Plotz, M.D.||RE: Henry Alliston at Westview|
OK great. You may want to remove your photo request then.
|Phillip Plotz, M.D.||Henry Alliston at Westview|
I see your request for a photo on findagrave for Westview Cemetery. I am familiar with that cemetery and would be happy to look for you. Would you please call the cemetery office at 404-755-6611 to find out the section and lot numbers for your request? And please also confirm there is actually a marker. The office is reluctant to give me that information and in fact has threatened to charge me for it. They do however give it easily to relatives. The cemetery is massive and that section/lot information will help me narrow the search.
|CC-Genealogy||re: SAC for Mary Ann (DUNCAN) RAY|
Thank you for your suggestion for Mary Ann (DUNCAN) RAY (the text of this suggestion I will attach). Unfortunately, I believe you are referring to a completely different John Ray (born 1863 in Indiana) who had sons named William (born 1874) and Fred (born 1875) and who lived at 'Indian Creek', Story County, Iowa in the 1880 census. I have not tracked this family further since they are not related. Fred reportedly married Isabelle L. Defore and is said to have died in 1928.
Thank you agin.
Will you please add to the bio?
"In addition to the children linked she and her husband had
Fred 15sep1974-13Jun1942. He died Los Angeles,Ca. Burial location unknown."
|Chris Burns||RE: Myrtle Box|
Glad to help. Chris
|Bud||RE: George Leon Doby|
I had the same thing happen to me. When I wrote to Find A Grave they transferred the memorial right to me. Lovd it.
So, Happy Researching, and the "Very Best" to you and all yours, Bud.
