Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hello, My family and I get all our information right from the cemeteries we acutally go out and visit. Not from books, newspaper obits or funeral home obits. To us it is more fun to do what we call cemetery hunting, going out and finding them. We feel that everyone should be remember. They are our history. Anyone that wishes can use any of the pictures and information that I have posted.

RE: Helen Toomer Jennings
Hello Kim,
James Ancrum Simons, husband of Helen Toomer Jennings is my great grandfather. You asked about the name change. It happend somewhere between 1895, when James Ancrum Simons , a well known lawyer in Charleston South Carolina was charged with breach of trust with fraudlent intent (I have a copy of the newspaper article if you're interested) and 1900 where you can find the family in the United States Census, Sioux Falls South Dakota with the name Ballantyne, James Ancrum is deceased as Helen is a widow, I have been unable to find any legal name change. James's grandmother was Margaret Anderson Ballentine, which is where we feel the new last name originated although the spelling is different.

Sorry it took so long for me to get back to you, just wanted to get the papers out and verify the information I was giving you. I'm curious, who is your husband and the lineage to James Ancrum Simons? Feel free to contact me at

RE: photo
I didn't find the marker for the other you wanted. The cemetery wasn't well maintained, plus there were loads of leaves. Perhaps someone else will find it in the future

Should have typed Smith/Padgett Family Cemetery.

Kind Regards,

Duplicate Cemetery
It looks like you have recently added photos to a cemetery named Jasper M Smith Family Cemetery that I added a few years back as Smith/Family Cemetery. Today, I also found an earlier listing as Smith Cemetery (all three in Colleton County, S.C.).

We should see if we can get them merged together. I have no ancestors in that cemetery and I have no ownership and freely release all photos I submitted.

You can find all three cemeteries by searching on Hugo S. Smith, b1853 in South Carolina.

Let me know if I need to take any action. I have worked with the editors of Find-a-grave before and they are pretty good about resolving these things.
