Jewell Family History
I am researching the Jewell family. So far, I know that James Lewis Jewell (B. 1811-D. 1895)
is my great, great grandfather. Have you found anything about his father(possibly Abel Jewell)?
My name is Patricia Jewell Shealy. John Norman Jewell was my grandfather(1886-1970). My father was James A Jewell(B. 1922- ? )
If you have any information it would be greatly appreciated.

If anyone else has info on the Jewell family, please share with me. Thanks

Martha Simmons stone
Findagrave shows the birth and death of Martha Simmons as 1759 on her tombstone at Stoney Creek Cemetary in South Carolina. In your book, you state that the year was "altered: on the stone and it shows 1750 originally. Can this be corrected in Findagrave? It allows some confusion in the dates of other occurences within the Simmons family.

Henry Emmes
For the Martha Simmons tombstone at Stoney Creek Cemetary in Sheldo SC, you state that the "Slate Stone Carved by Henry Emmes of Boston Massachusetts who carved many stones for the Simmons family at the Circular Church in Charleston." I am a decendant of the Simmons' of Stoney Creek and I wanted to Know how you knew about Henry Emmes and what else you could lead me to about this and other stones he carved for the Simmons' of Charleston. Also related to Ebenezar Simmons of Charleston in the 1700s.

Rosa Ellen Smith Gillespie
I transferred your Grandmother Rosa Ellen Smith Gillespie to you. It sounds like she was a wonderful lady.

RE: Alexander Short

The transfer is complete.
I'm looking forward to seeing the new information that you are going to add to his page. The Pencader cemetery is on my way home from work, so I decided to photograph all the stones and ad all the information I could to them in hopes of helping someone with their ancestral beginnings.

Glad I could help,
David M. Myers

Runnells Dill
Dear David,

My wife, Susan, is a descendant of Runnells Dill. We saw your Jun 03, 2009 contribution regarding Runnels Dill on "Find a Grave." We went to the Mush Creek Cemetery last year in search of the tombstone but couldn't find it. Do you have any proof that he is buried there?
