Bio and Links
Bio Photo Family Memories show us the roots of our past and shares with future generations of our will to continue on. Preserve Family memories well, for when we forget, memories can never be retold.

My mother, Royena Margueritte Lowman Smith, and I started with the family tree when I was a young girl. We would go and hunt through old cemeteries to find loved ones. Since my mothers death, it has been really important for me to continue searching for family members. If you have a moment, please stop by and place a token on mom's memorial. I Thank You in advance for doing so.

I have found through lots of research that a large number of my ancestors were located in the Lexington County, and Newberry County area of South Carolina and in the area of Swainsboro, Georgia. Through the research I have found that each of these lines are rather large lines of family.

These are a few of the family names that I am researching:
Smith, Lowman, Oswalt and/or Oswald, Shealy, and Atkins.

I love genealogy. Genealogy has become a favorite past time for me. I love finding new information about family members.

I hope that the information that I have added to Find A Grave helps to connect other families.

Please let me know if I need to make corrections or if there is other information that needs to be added.

God Bless you.

James A Williams
Hey there, I really need you to contact me. I have left you messages for you on because you have a Gladys M Smith on your family tree and her son was James A Williams Jr who was killed overseas during WWII. I have contacted the media and let them know that I have found a family member through and Please call me and I can explain everything. My number at home is toll free 1-866-791-9921...because we own a business and frequently use our home phone. This is so exciting! Can't wait to hear from you.

RE: Brown Family Cemetery
Hi Jeanie-

How are you? I am in Florida, but I visited Paxville last April to find my 4th G-Grandfather, William Friendly Pack, who was J. Nelson's Stepfather. The ticks were horrible at the time (I wasn't prepared), so I was only able to take three pictures. But one picture I was able to get, was his and his wife's tombstone---I just added them.

I hope to go back this year and complete the cemetery---there are probably another 20 or so tombstones.

Let me know if you want me to transfer control to you of the info.

Mae Johnson Cullimore's Spouse
I'm not able to make the change. The spousal link was made from Jerry Clay Johnson's memorial. The manager of his memorial will have to make that change.

re: Florence and Montine Griffith
I would love to email you but see no email address. My cousin, Bobbie, sent me those pictures year ago. I wonder if she got them from you. They were just copied from a copy machine. Those are the only pictures of I have of Aunt Montine and Aunt Florence. They were my grandfather's sisters. Bobbie said that she thought that Montine had a son - Joe Grifith - but that was about all she knew about him and didn't know where he ended up. I would LOVE to hear about Aunt Montine taking care of you children. Did you know Aunt Florence through Montine, or did she work for your family too? I'm thrilled that you contacted me and hoped that someone would. I have worked hard to link up all those Griffith siblings. God bless.

Memorial# 68876000 - I added the info and links to her parents as you requested. She was the granddaughter of Henry Luther Price and Susan Nancy Boland which is why she is buried in the Price Family Cemetery.

Hi Jeanie, I have added info about both wives of Wilson to his bio. Do you know the last name of the second wife? Let me know if the additions are satisfactory and if you have other info to add. BTW, I also have Shealy ancestors who settled in Newberry Co SC. Best regards, Barbara Long Stanford
