Yes the photos in the book created by coroner and Chicora Group are the same as the cemetery I visited and photo'd. They could have used my photo's but I don't think they thought to ask, I certainly would have given consent.
Thanks again for all you do.
Re: the post from Anonymous
Thank you for standing up for me in your reply to that person on my public page. Every private cemetery I've visited has been requested by someone and 9 of 10 I have been with a relative. Unless the graves are totally neglected, obvious no relatives remain that take care of it. Only one that I can think of is one I honored by taking photo's, total neglect, overgrown but had at least one well marked WWII vet buried, a grave that recent from a Vet to boot, shouldn't be forgotten. Maybe that is who they are fired up about, if so should be grateful some one cared enough to clean up and photo. Anyway, thanks for having my back.

I see you are the owner of the stone photo's.
Although the stone is posted under a different name on Ancestry.com (you may have had another request for permission to post the photo's). Still I thought it best to ask your permission to post your photo's to a tree I'm working on Ancestry.com.
If you are researching the Sitler/Sightler line you will be interested in the Sitler Cemetery that I photographed and posted memorials to findagrave.com. It is quite full of information.

I would agree this is your relative. I do not have mothers name, but father and other family members are definitely in the Sitler (later Sightler) cemetery. Would you like the man or other family members transferred to your care? Do you know if he was a tree harvester or frequently in the woods? The facial/skull injuries he survived are similar to someone being hit by a 'widow maker'. A tree limb, dead and detached from trunk but hanging, generally vertical, that suddenly drops onto the unsuspecting person underneath, often with fatal results. I only know this because a family member recently survived this event with almost identical injuries as described. Today has surgery to help correct massive injuries such as this. I'm sure Lexington County Coroner's office and the Chicora Organization would still like to hear from a relative of this man. http://www.chicora.org/pdfs/RC540%20Sightler%20Cemetery%20optimized.pdf
Thanks for all you do.
