Bio and Links
Bio Photo I live in Sumter SC and moved here 35 years ago from Miami (What a shock). I have 2 boys and 3 granddaughters. My husband passed in 2006 and I was lost so that is when I got into researching our ancestry. I love it.. When I found find a grave it was a blessing to be able to ask for photos that I was not able to obtain myself.. I love going out and exploring graveyards and peoples history.. So if you need anything in this area contact me.. Please let me know if I have posted anything that needs to be corrected.. I will transfer only in accordance with FAG bylaws. I have transferred in the past to whom ever ask, but have found out that some of them are not related to whom I transferred to. I hate that people do this and make it difficult for others.

Old White Pond Cemetery
Hello Vikki
We have been able to remove/transfer all the graves from White Pond Barnwell to Old White Pond Aiken except for one. Since the volunteer in question very likely is not interested I am planning to ask Find A Grave to make the transfer.
Please check your memorial at Old White Pond for Dudley Glisson. I believe when the Find A Grave volunteer moved their Memorial under that same name to Old White Pond Aiken it created duplication.
May I suggest you consider deleting your memorial to Dudley Glisson but using your picture on the one which will remain?
Thank you again for your cooperation in getting these two cemeteries together. We are just about done.

Thank you very much for the transfers. I have updated them at Old White Pond and eliminated the ones I could at White Pond.

RE: White pond cemetery...
Thanks Vikki
I really appreciate your cooperation. My goal is this case is not to adopt memorials but rather eliminate the duplication which currently exists between White Pond and Old White Pond. Your work at Old White Pond should be the Find A Grave cemetery which continues to exist. The White Pond Cemetery in my opinion should slowly by surely be eliminated.
My connections in this area are with the Hightowers, Felders, Careys, Hitts and Rountrees.
I will request the transfers using the Find A Grave Edit key. Whenever you transfer a name which has been duplicated between the two cemeteries I will eliminate that name at White Pond.
Thanks again for your cooperation. You should begin to receive transfer requests later today.
Enjoy your Find A Grave work.

White Pond and Old White Pond
Good morning Vikki
My name is Ed Hightower. As you can see on Find A Grave I have been a volunteer for about four years now.
During 2013 and working with a close friend and fellow Hightower researcher I was supplied with photos my friend had made at what he referred to as the White Pond Cemetery in Barnwell County, S.C. He grew up in that same County.
Apparently he forgot or omitted to tell me White Pond Cemetery and perhaps Old White Pond Cemetery are one in the same or right next to one another. Not having been there myself I do not know which.
Well today it is clear that White Pond or Old White Pond now lies in Aiken and not as originally in Barnwell. So as you will see when checking Find A Grave we have duplicated some graves which are most likely in a common cemetery.
Before asking Find A Grave to merge this data from their HQ perhaps we can work this out between the two of us and others who have posted at White Pond. There are a maximum of 20 graves to deal with.
My initial suggestion between the two of us is as follows. I will delete the five Hightower graves and one Rountree grave I created in 2013 at White Pond Barnwell if you will transfer those same graves posted by you in 2014 at Old White Pond in Aiken to me. The six graves in question are a part of my direct family tree. Afterwards we can ask others who have posted at White Pond Barnwell to follow a similar pattern. The goal being to eventually eliminate White Pond in Barnwell and have all graves properly posted at Old White Pond Aiken.
Let me know how you would like to proceed.

I am so pleased that you were able to locate this tiny family cemetery. Information from the genealogical records in Sumter say "There were 16 children in this family..." Just imagine how many descendants are giving thanks for you today!! Include me in those, Vikki!!!
