Hi to everyone that is doing this same kind of contribution. Mine started when my grandparents passed away and I started researching the family name starting with the Harris side. Then I found out that the county he was from, had very few records left, due to the courthouse burning down, so that set me on the long road of searching for his ancestors in cemeteries, in hopes of finding some info from them. Then, when my father passed I found there were so many un kept graves of military people, so I decided to give other families some rememberence of their loved one that served, and I found your site and became a contributor, in hopes of helping others find their heros. I moved from Virginia and now reside in South Carolina and hope to continue researching and helping others.|
GOD bless our FREEDOM and all those that served to protect it.

I am very impressed you have been on ancestry since 1989, that must have been just about from the very beginning! I wonder if you would be able to help me a bit with your branch? Our cousin Alice Blackwell Tucker seems to have got almost every relative of Martin descent so I am sure you will have come across her tree already. I copied your branch from her tree, but there are clearly some errors on hers. I will send you a private email.
|Teresa Stokes||RE: Lucy Ann Martin|
My fault - I should have checked the heading before sending. I meant Julia Ann Martin (1853-1927) wife of Pryor Davenport Martin Jr. I got her name right in the body of my message. Looking again at the findagrave page it says that you didn't create the entry but that it is maintained by you. Sorry for any confusion by me, I should read everything twice before pressing send! I expect you are a member of the ancestry website, which is what led me to the findagrave site. The State of Virginia has shared millions of birth, marriage, divorce and death records fairly recently, which were not there when I first joined ancestry a few years ago, and they are incredibly useful. The handwritten entry by the doctor there make it clear that Julia died at 7pm on Nov 25th 1927, of "gangrene of the foot complicated with nervous troubles" of 3 years duration.

Good morning, I am hoping that you can give me help on the location of this Bethel Cemetery in Horry County. One of the memorials is 111995401. If you can help by letting me know a road name, landmark, etc I would appreciate it.
If Horry County has not inventoried this one I'd like to put it on our "next time out" list.
Thanking you in advance,

Dear Mrs. Gloria Harris Mays,
Thank you so very much much Maam for your kind, thoughtful words, as well actions. As anyone may utter words yet your actions speak volumes.
On your thought about the legacy. By now making it multiply as is similar to setting up trusts and creating as we have endowed scholarships at higher education and/or other organizations may well be your answer Maam. Using the Principle to produce then putting the profits into the scholarships and what ever your choices are Maam.
My mother who is in the Order of the Eastern Star ( OES) , a NOTE* the more who well know both males and females may JOIN and belong to the OES. She set up a few, fully endowed scholarships, even in other kins names.
Most people do not even know to JOIN they have to ask. Memberships, as you well know, are only attained by asking then JOINING. But if nobody knows they have to ask. . ..
My Great Uncle Elwood Floyd Yates, a 33rd Degree Mason..etc.. his first bill he proposed in his elected position in Virginia was to stop the plowing under of any Cemetery. He is also the one who saved the Wild Turkey.. no not that wonderful American Bourbon..
His son, Col. Elwood F. Yates, Jr. ( 32nd) is continuing his work and done so much on his own.
GOD Bless you.
Regards and love to you and your families,
Jonathan Robert De Mallie
