|Bio and Links|
Over the past thirty five years, our extended family has researched, identified, located, and documented our direct lineage ancestors and their inter-married collateral families. In this regard, Find-A-Grave has provided an excellent forum in which to research, identify, locate, document, link and to share generations of families with their ancestors and to their descendants. |
We are interested in the relationships between these families before they emigrated to America, whereever, and if any, and in the new relationships they forged with allies, neighbors, social and political alliances, through their marriages, in the art of business, trade, economics and commerce, throughout the politics of war, and in their migrations over time.
Our keen interest is in linking our direct lineage ancestors to their immigrant ancestors from generation to generation.
In this endeavor, we strive to share as much documented known information about each ancestor for whom we have created a memorial with the express purpose of sharing what is known to enable other researchers to identify those members within their and within our own common intermarried families.
To be sure by the third generation our ancestors may also be your ancestors, and if we kindly decline a request for a transfer it is simply because our direct lineage ancestors are in common to your family and the memorial already created may simply be edited with your additional biographical information or your family photographs you may wish to share with others interested in our families.
To this end, if we have created a memorial for a common family ancestor and you have additional documented biographical information you'd like to add, please email and we will be happy to add your information and to cite you as a source. If you sponsor a memorial we have created for a common ancestor, we take this opportunity to thank you for your consideration of our efforts and acknowledge your generosity. If you have kindly donated your time, efforts and diligence in searching a cemetery to aid us in documenting through photographs our ancestors, we are gratefully indebted to you.
Our direct line ancestors include Abercrombie; Alford / Holford / Olford / Oldford; Amistead / Armstead / Armistead; Atwell / Autwell / Atwood; Baker; Bell; Descendants of Benjamin Brown, of Albemarle County, Virginia; Burt / Burtz of Abbeville, Newberry & Edgefield Counties in South Carolina; Atwell / Autwell; Bolt; Butler; Cole; Cook; Crumpton; Dabney; Darymple; Davis; Dial; Doggett; Driver; Flanders; Floyd; Garland; Green; Griffin / Griffith / Gryffth; Harrison; Hill; Hinesley / Hindsley / Hynsley; Horsley / Horsly / Horsely; Hudgins / Hudgeons / Hudgens / Hutchison; Huff; Jefferson; Jennings; Jones; Lewis; Lindley / Lindly; Love; Lovelace / Loveless; Mayo; McCarty; McCaw; McMichael; Meadows; Mitchell; Myddleton / Mydleton / Middleton; Norwood; Outwell / Otwell / Oatwell; Oberby / Overbey / Overbay/ Overbury / Patton; Preston; Rooks; Rose; Russell; Scoggin / Scoggins / Scroggins; Scott; Smith; Snowden / Snowdon; Teague; Thomas; Thomasson / Tomaston / Thomaston; Tomson / Thomason / Thomson / Thompson; Thrower; Tomson; Waddy; Washington; Descendants of Jacob Weldon of New Castle; Wheeldon, Weldon, Wheldon, Whdin, Wheldon; White; Williams; and Young / Yonge.

|Sharlean Ledel||Clement Hancock|
My name is Sharlean Ledel. I am researching my lineage using Ancestry.com. I have puzzled over my question and done as much as I otherwise can to determine that this Clement Hancock, killed at Hayes Station rose to the rank of Lieutenant. I can't find a source that confirms that information. I don't think the headstone itself even implies he was a Lieutenant. Quite the contrary. Any information, record, or family history that can document this would be greatly appreciated.
Thanking you in advance.
|Peggy Dean Finch||Wm. Sylvester & Annie Grigsby|

and Annie Grigsby were done in 2011. I had already
placed memorials for them in 2008, they are my
g.grandparents. Wm. Sylvester #29365185 and Annie
|renee dey||Rosanna Griffin Blocker Fair|
Hello there, I wanted to know if Rosanna Griffin Blocker Fair Memorial# 150401357, is actually buried there? I have been unable to find any documentation that lists her burial site. Does she have tombstone?
Thanks for all that you do. She is my 6th great grandmother.
|Brian Rowland||Floride and William Rowland|
Like other persons sending you public messages on this board, I am concerned whether you are active because you are not responsive to my e-mails.
Flora Reese Rowland (44873715) is my great great grandmother. I've written you a couple of times about a transfer of this memorial and that of her husband William Rowland (44873822). I would still appreciate the transfer of them both, but if you won't, please correct the spelling of her first name. It is "Floride" not "Florida".

|Linda Hayes||Richard Griffin/Mary Jane Griffin|
Find A Grave Memorial# 151388281
My direct ancestors include Richard Griffin Sr. and his son Ralph (brother to Richard Griffin 1720-1777). Most of the information I have came from another cousin.
I see the work posted on Richard Jr. and some of his children. Is this your work? You indicate that they are buried in the Mullis Family Cemetery. Is this an existing cemetery or a location set up for tribute? I know in some cases family cemeteries got lost to future settlements.
Thanks for the work.
|MLKunz||Capt John Thompson|
Find A Grave Memorial# 97918593
I noticed that his grave and his wife's are listed in John Thompson Family Cemetery, or something similar, in Union, Union County, SC. Is this an actual cemetery or something set up on Find a Grave for a burial place whose exact location is unknown?

|Bobby Meadows||Simeon Whatley Meadows|
Would you make a correction on memorial 56996226 Simeon Whatley Meadows. You have death year as 1855, while in his bio you have him marrying a second time in 1859 which would be impossible.
|Dan Woodruff||General James Williams|
Hi, I noticed that you have his death information incorrect. He was mortally wounded at the Battle of Kings Mountain on October 7th 1780 and died the next day. The battle took place on a mountain in South Carolina named for its owner. The town of Kings Mountain, about 11 miles north of the battlefield wasn't created until 1874 and took its name from the battle.
General James Williams died at Kings Mountain Battlefield and was originally buried there. This was "Indian lands" sparsely settled by colonists during the Revolutionary War. This area became Pickney District, South Carolina in 1795 and was further broken into counties in 1798 and the area the battlefield is in became York County. The mountain was never in North Carolina.
My sources are: "The Patriots at Kings Mountain" by Bobby Gilmer Moss, Phd.; Google maps; The city website of Kings Mountain, NC; "The Handybook for Genealogist", www.mapofus.org.
I have made an edit request. I hope that you choose to accept the changes.
Dan Woodruff, President of the South Carolina Society Sons of the American Revolution 2014-2015.

Thank you for the additional information about Jeremiah T Thompson #132675980. I have added your suggestions to the bio information. Would like to link him to his wife and parents. Do you know if they have FinAGrave memorials?
