Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am originally from Hartsville, Darlington, Florence area of South Carolina. I am related to the Watkins, Williams, Browns, Kelleys , Kellys, McDonalds, and many many more. This is a great site for building family history to pass on to our children and grand children. God Bless and have a glorious day!

Revelation 21:4
King James Version (KJV)

And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.

P.S. Please take a moment to visit the memorial for Morgan Thompson . We went to High School together. Morgan had been living in the Boy's Home for a number of years. He haid been talking for a couple of years about joining the Army as soon as he was old enough so he could get out of the Boy's Home. He joined the Army and came by school to show us his uniform. He had a smile from ear to ear! I will never forget how proud he looked in his dress uniform. He had just completed basic training and was on his way to Vietnam. A few short months later we got word that Morgan had been killed in combat. God bless you Morgan. You made the ultimate sacrifice for our country. Freedom is not free. Through the sacrifices of many thousands of men and women like Morgan we have freedom. He was only 18! Cherish this freedom and never let it be taken away.

RE: add info/sponsor or transfer
Thanks so much for the information, tranfer ect. I will work with Find a Grave in regards to my dad's memorial. Mom is listed on dad's marker but is still with us at 88. She is actually physically healthier than I am, but she has alzheimers. Sad but again Rev 21:4.
Thinking possibly since your high school friend served in Vietnam and both of our parents are buried there in Arlington, we might also have been classmates. My dad Richard Gilmore taught Art at Arlington Jr HI in the 1960's thru the 70's. He also taught Adult night Art classes. Photography for him was both a hobby and profession. At times I would be his assistant when he had weddings or single sittings for graduations and such. Both myself and brother William (Bill) attended Terry Parker High....graduating in 1965 and me in 66. We lived in the Englewood High boundaries but since dad taught at Arlington and we lived on the edge of Glenlea near little Pottsburg creek an exception was made.
Anyway thanks again for explaining as I learn to use this site. Today I found 3 generations and many cousins for an older friend. Many photos too. It was so fun to see him discover his family. The work done is so appreciated.Thank you

add info/sponsor or transfer
Hi Johnny,

Thank you for creating these memorials and providing nice pictures. In addition to the great scripture Rev 21:4 I also appreciated your comments in regards to your high school friend that served in Vietnam.
If I want to add information or connect these memorials do I sponsor them or do I request you to add that info or transfer to me?

Below please find my relationship to each of the deceased.

# 28660099 RW Gilmore: my father
# 91829231 Myra D Whitsett Stuchul: my maternal grandmother
# 91829147 WR Gilmore: my brother

I understand you created the last two listed memorials but my father's show "23inactive".

Thank you again for your time and effort in making this cemetery information available.

Hope to hear from you soon.
