In doing some research at Shady Grove Baptist Church I notice that Ms Carters records show that she was buried at Pelzer SC.

Shady Grove Baptist Church is in Belton SC

#62895183 is the number on the page that I came across... and it had your name on the page.

I do not know the lady just saw that it said Pelzer and not Belton SC

Thanks for Posting Settles Photograph
Dear Ms. Butler:

Thanks so much for contributing the picture of my cousin Bobby Crafton Settles. Although I left South Carolina as a child, I have fond memories of my time there with Bobby and my beautiful Aunt Essie. On my next trip to Greenville, I will be sure to visit your museum.

I appreciate all of your good work.

Mae Settles,
Aliso Viejo, CA

Ms. Ruth Ann Butler our families go back many years together. Thanks for your time. You thought enough of my family, to record Tangie's death and burial in a database that will allow her granddaughter to retrieve information about her when she becomes a young lady. Your historical instincts are truly appreciated. I thank you and your dear sisters, Ms.Luella and Ms. Maybelle for the time and tools you shared with Tangie and I as very young girls. It truly, "Takes A Village To Raise A Child." Thank you.
