Bio and Links
Bio Photo One of my main goals for 2017 will be to complete the 700+ entries added via spreadsheet for Rest Haven Cemetery. You are welcome to send edits but I will be completing these as I locate records to fill in the missing information, link families, and correct the dates of death which are currently listed from the cemetery records as dates of burial. Thank you for your patience.

PLEASE do not take my photos (family pictures or grave photos) and use elsewhere, especially Ancestry, without my permission. There's personal family photos I've never even uploaded to Ancestry but have ONLY placed on Find A Grave that have been taken and put on other's Ancestry trees, and they aren't even related to us!! Really??????

Much of my work is from "mowing the rows" in our local cemeteries or in those that are special to me when I get a chance to visit. I try to be very thorough in what I do post to this site. My favorite part of contributing to Find A Grave is walking the cemeteries and taking photos. I also utilize available records for my entries and hope to either photograph later myself or have other contributors photograph these graves, as I have photographed theirs. ACCURATE cemetery documentation is very important, and this is why I do what I do.
I love to research and link families, and add biographical information - please use the Edit tab and send me any information you would like to have added, and I will add based on the rules for bios set in the Find A Grave FAQ's, which includes rewriting obituary information facts so as not to violate copyright (pre-1923 obits excluded).
I transfer only within the four-generation
Find-A-Grave guidelines.
PLEASE carefully check the cemetery in which you want to list a memorial (it doesn't hurt to quickly check the county too) BEFORE you list it, as one may already exist for that person. Duplicate memorials for the same person, ("Dupes"), whether accidental or intentional, are not allowed by F-A-G. Duplicates erode the quality of this site and are problematic for many reasons. I will send you a friendly SAC if I see one.
It is very sad that quite a few contributors continue to misuse this site and post entries as permanent BURIAL UNKNOWN, both recent deaths and those 100 years ago or more.
This is Find A GRAVE, not a memorial site for generations of folks who have passed on and we do not know where they are buried, or for certain what happened to their remains.
I do not add entries for those with unknown dispositions (Burial Unknown) to Find A Grave. I also will not link my managed memorials to those without proper dispositions. Please do not link any BURIAL UNKNOWN entries to the memorials I manage; I will request the links to be removed if I become aware they have been linked.
PLEASE realize this is a GRAVES REGISTRATION SITE, not a place for you to build your family tree :) If you do not know where the person was buried, or the final disposition of the remains, you should not be listing the person on FIND A GRAVE.
The most recent FAQ's regarding the purpose of this site:
What is Find A Grave?
Find a Grave's mission is to find, record
and present final disposition information
from around the world as a virtual cemetery experience.

Memorial contributions to Find A Grave should fulfill that mission - registration
of the final disposition.
If the memorial contribution corresponds with only the
main mission,then the memorial fulfills its purpose as part of Find A Grave's mission.

Find a Grave memorials may contain rich content including pictures, biographies and more specific information. Members can
leave remembrances via ‘virtual flowers' on the memorials they visit, completing the virtual cemetery experience.

Find A Grave is a resource for anyone in finding the final disposition of family,
friends, and ‘famous' individuals.

Find A Grave is definitely a genealogical RESOURCE, but not a genealogical SITE..... There's a difference :)

Mary Caroline Wilcox
Hello, my name is Randall Cutbirth. I'm hoping you can help me with some ancestry research I'm doing. A grave you manage, Mary Caroline Wilcox, happens to be the sister of my maternal great grandmother, Pearl Mae Kerby. She was born in 1921 in Florida, being 6 years younger than Mary. She was married a bunch of times, 6 that I've counted. I'm trying to locate her, whether she's still alive or not. Do you know who I speak of? If you have any information on her or know anyone who does I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you!

RE: Mamie Galloway Hendricks
Thank you for the quick reply!

I had found some newspaper articles about O.S. (Lon) Galloway that a cousin had. Apparently he had murdered another and spent several years in jail, where he is during the 1930 census.

I have Lela/Leila's maiden name as Galloway, daughter of Calvin Lynch Galloway and Mary Jane Garren. I will need to do a little more searching to confirm this, but she is listed as Lela G. Galloway on one if her sons' death certificate.

Mamie Galloway Hendricks

I am having trouble proving the parents of Mamie. I see you note an obituary. Does the obituary state her parents are Mr and Mrs. O S Galloway? I do not see a Mamie in the census records for this family. I do see a Mamie the right age in the home of Alonzo S. Galloway and his wife Lela. I cannot find a death record to verify one way or another. I am not in a location to be able to look p the details of the obituary myself, and would appreciate knowing what it says.

(A Galloway and Hendricks descendant).

Finding John Boggs
I have found John Ervin Boggs and his dates - have asked the originator of the page to add his dates and update his page - also linking to his parents. Thanks again, Judy

RE: Offie Howard Silver
I wonder if maybe the undertaker in charge at Winston-Salem just didn't know the exact cemetery name, only that the body was being transported to Marshall for burial. So he may have just made up the name "Marshall Cemetery".

RE: Addie Thompson
Thank you! I have modified her Findagrave entry accordingly. Do you have a link to the cemetery records, or did you do that work offline?

Addie Thompson
Hi, I just saw your edit suggestion from October 26. I'm curious to know how you determined the death date of Addie Thompson (89260849). I've been unable to find a document for it. Thank you!

Karyn, there are two cemeteries named Ebenezer. One is the one Ann has indicted which is within the city of Newberry, SC associated with the Ebenezer Methodist Church of Newberry. The other one is the one Joseph Caldwell is buried in, which is between Newberry, SC and Whitmire, SC on a back road and is associated with the United Methodist Church of Whitmire that originally stood on this ground. It is now located within the City limits of Whitmire. Do you want to explain that to Ann or do you want me to.
