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, Agnew, Bradley, Bigham, Montgomery, Pressly, Alston, Lyon, Glenn, Miller, Flenniken, Faulkner, Moore, May, McDill, Weir, Goode, Greneker, Sligh, Clark, Calhoun, Caldwell, DeWolfe, Dickinson, Rosborough, Emory, Service, Barnhill, Boykin, Wilkinson, Nicholson, Hemphill, Howard, Wylie, Strong, Gardiner, Goslan, Ochiltree, Howell, Holloway, Ladd, Witherspoon, Wiseman, Schley, Snellings, Sanders, 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: Robert Aldrich
Thanks for being so prompt on moving Robert. We will try and get out to Grwd Memorial Gardens and get a photo of his marker if there is one.

Oh, gosh, yes, I have deleted that edit request and submitted a correct one. Not sure how that happened, and I'm glad you caught it! I'm working on getting the entire cemetery photographed and entered into findagrave, so if you have relatives there, keep checking back, as I hope to finish in the next couple of weeks. I am just past halfway there.

Thank you for your detailed notes and uploads on Find-A-Grave! I love the stories and remember the 'dinner-on-the-ground' days with kinfolks.
If I can help in any way, please email me. I am also on
