|Gypsy Soul||RE: Smith/ Hillcrest|
I completely understand. I have two brothers-in-law buried there as well as a great aunt, a few cousins, and several family friends. Fortunately, we haven't had any trouble with their stones but the office staff are certainly no longer helpful or friendly. I have talked to others who have had similar trouble and apparently it all started when the Dignity company took over. Several other cemeteries in the upstate are ran by that company now and they are all like that.
I've spoken to other cemeteries not operated by Dignity and they have all said it's a bunch of bull. So as weather, my health, and my schedule permit, I'll continue to go and photograph. It might take me a while to fill the requests since the office doesn't want to tell me plot info, but that's ok, I'll just walk up and down the rows until I have found them or I run out of stones.

Thank you for honoring my edit request on this memorial.

Does anyone know who her parents were because, I am looking far as Susan Fowler who was named in her father's will(Matthew Fowler) in 1884 but doesn't mention any married name. If this is the right one then I will request a link to her parents.

Susan would have moved to Texas from Greenville, South Carolina.

Hello fellow Find A Grave member,
I had planned on accepting your request to HILLCREST Memorial Park in Pickens, SC, however I spoke to a representative who was quick to inform me, and I quote, "HIPAA laws prevent anyone from obtaining burial plot information or taking pictures; only direct family members or the plot owners are allowed to do so."
I am familiar with HIPAA laws because I work in the healthcare field. To make sure that I had not missed any information, I reviewd the website www.hhs.gov/hipaa. No where on that site, could I find any information that would pertain to a cemetery, much less one refusing to give burial information or allowing photography. HIPAA laws are meant to protect your medical information, not the location of your burial spot. I also checked the Pickens County website, again, I did not find any information to support what the representative told me.
I contacted a few other local cemeteries to see if they would tell me the same thing and none of them knew anything about these supposed privacy laws. One of the other cemeteries was even maintained by a neighboring county. I would think if any cemetery office would know, it would be the one maintained by a government office!
By the conclusion of the call, the cemetery representative mumbled something about if the person making the Find A Grave request would call the cemetery office, give their relationship to the deceased, then the plot information might be released. He continued to mumble something about possibly taking pictures but it was almost entirely inaudible, then he hung up on me.
I ask that if you wish to continue with your request, call the Hillcrest Memorial Park office at 864-878-9312 to obtain the plot information. I am not sure of their exact hours, but I would suggest calling between 9:00am-5pm, EST.
|Booter & Laura Cantrell||RE: William Hester Sr|
Hey Jimmy, Thanks for the reply on William Hester question. The best we could find out is he is probably buried there in the Hunt cemetery. Sorry for my late reply, I have not been on find a grave much of late. Hope you doing good, let me know if I can help you with anything. Bill.
You are welcome Jimmy, it's always good to meet a cousin. I got these off of ancestry.com.

Mr. Hunt in creating this cemetery you have duplicated memorials created in 2010, misspelled the maiden name of Frances Center and posted a photo I posted 6 years ago that was taken by my parents in 1982 - crediting it to someone else who I suppose "found it" online, perhaps on the original memorial or on my tree on Ancestry.com. Please delete these duplicate memorials and in the future be more careful about your sources, your information and always check first to see that you are not duplicating the work of others. The original posts are accurate and I chose to add my parents' photo of William Perry Center's marker there since the family cemetery was destroyed by the construction of the Cliffs of Glassy housing development. No other cemetery needs to be "created" on Find A Grave for these two people as the issue has already been addressed with the posting of their memorials in 2010.
|Mandy G.||RE: Thank You|
You're welcome - I just located a better, close-up photo of his name, which I will add to the memorial in a moment. I was feeling badly that I didn't have a better photo, since getting the HBCF to allow me to take more pictures in the church could be difficult!!
It is true that his actual burial location is in a mass grave, marked by only the state of origin. I can add photos of Memorial Hill and the state marker if you wish, but I don't want to use up all the photo spaces if not.

|Yankee Magnolia||RE: Correction requested|
I didn't read the cemetery page before I sent the message about the duplicate. I understand the problem with this but it's likely you will continue to get duplicate notices. Do you participate in the Community Forums? You might consider posting your question there and see if others can give you advice. Good luck.

I transferred the account to you, I don't know her and would prefer someone who does to manage her memorial.
Thank you, have a wonderful day
