Bio and Links
Bio Photo My Aunt and I started researching our Ghent family and I came across Find A Grave in our ancestry searches. I was so impressed with the site that I started going to cemeteries and local libraries in search of information.
Find A Grave is a great resource and has a lot of wonderful historical information.
My goal is to be able to locate and provide as much information on each of our Ghent family members that I can find. I have found more than one set of Ghent's in our area and I am trying to see if they connect, so linking them has been a great tool.
In my many cross-eyed searches in reading small print, very old and blurry microfilm at the library, I try to keep and eye out for information on deaths, marriages, births, etc...on other local citizens and add those in hopes to help others with their genealogy endeavors.
I have received a lot of help from other members of Find A Grave and it's very much appreciated.

Thanks, Cathie!
I was aware of the group from Union, but currently we can find
no connection. My father talked and researched with some of their descendants in the 1960s, if you can believe that.
We probably should do DNA testing now and see, however.

Cathie,
That is absolutely perfect! Thank you so much.
I can call Doug and see if there is a street address; for now just put at the corner of Hwy 9 & Old Dixie School Road. There is probably not an actual "street address" but maybe a tax map number. I will call the tax office & see if they know before calling Doug. They may be able to provide that before he because it's tax time for him.
I transferred the two Sweatt girls to that cemetery already. Would you like those transferred to you? If so, just let me know.
GREAT job, Cathie...
With Sincere Appreciation,
Fran

RE: William Rowell
You may use anything you would like. They are direct quotes from Chris Ferguson's book, so as long as you footnote the quotes to him you should be all right.

The grave marker is not a Cenotaph. There is just one marker for all the South Carolina soldiers re-interred from Arlington Virginia.
According to Chris Ferguson, Author of "Southerners at Rest." Buried in the Soldiers East Section Hollywood Cemetery, Richmond Va. Page 231,

http://cwba.blogspot.com/2008/06/ferguson-
southerners-at-rest.html

Note #33 " in the 1870's soldiers from North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia were removed from Arlington Cemetery, It remains unclear why the South Carolina soldiers were buried in Hollywood. The Author, Chris Ferguson perused "Randolph Kirkland's" Book " Broken Fortunes",( Charleston SC ) privately printed 1864-1865 and recorded names thought to be buried in Arlington. A subsequent review of individual service records confirmed the burial of 24 remains in Arlington, and it is likely these soldiers now repose in Hollywood. note page XVIII
