Bio and Links
I have researched family genealogy for more than 40 years.

I think that findagrave is a wonderful resource, and most of its contributors are considerate of each other.

Cleva Raper
Tony, I am the volunteer who claimed your photo request for Cleva. Cemetery records show she was buried Jul 6, 1971 in a paupers grave in block 22, Single Row 6, space 7. There is also Mary Etta Raper in a paupers grave at the same location in space 9, buried Sep 26, 1970.

I have photographed about 3/4 of the grave markers in block 22, and will search the rest for Cleva, however, I've yet to find a marker on a pauper grave. Let's hope someone has added one.

White Pond and Old White Pond Barnwell and Aiken
As already advised I have contacted Ted Hightower on this matter. I have also contacted the lady who listed Old White Pond Cemetery in Aiken County, S.C.
As of this morning I have not heard back from either one.
In an effort to eliminate duplication I suggested to the following to the lady who listed Old White Pond Cemetery in February 2014. Transfer memorials in her listings at Old White Pond Aiken to those who had made the same listings at White Pond Barnwell. Thereafter those who had listed at White Pond Barnwell would delete their listed memorials at that cemetery. The intent being to eventually eliminate all listing at White Pond Barnwell.
If I do not hear back from her soon I will lay this at the doorstep of Find A Grave and ask they merge the cemeteries as they see best.

I will ask Ted Hightower. He provided the Hightower photos I posted in 2013 and he has made a visit to the cemetery.
The Old White Pond Cemetery added by Vikki in July 2014 is clearly covering the same people only adding more graves and I would suspect the same cemetery.
I personally do not know if the cemetery is in Barnwell or Aiken,
My guess is it was once in Barnwell and then cut off when Aiken was formed?
Will let you know what Ted says.

RE: Loma Vista Corrections
Thanks so much for taking them, Tony. I've had a couple of strokes, and I was afraid they would be stuck in Never-Never land if they stayed with me. grace

RE: Loma Vista Corrections
No problem, Tony. I put on my big-girl pants and looked up the records last night. You should have received notices [about 5, I think] that they were done. Would you like to have these people? John Q, Martha, Baby, Ralph, and Ruth - and anyone else there that's related. They are not mine, and I'm getting on in years. ;-) BTW, I believe Ruth's age is wrong on her stone. She's 2 years off in the 2 censuses I checked. grace

Loma Vista Corrections
Hi Tony, I inherited Loma Vista's Adams Family when I requested the ones in Pearsall. I know little about them. Would you mind please sending me your sources for the information? I don't want someone else coming back and telling me I'm wrong. If I have the evidence in hand, they can't do that. Thanks! grace
