Thanks to several helpers with this project.|
To Rich Ryals and Jody Mishoe for many hours in the cemeteries photographing and gps'ing for Horry County. To Chris Plaisance in Alabama, Johnny McKelvey in Pennsylvania, Kathy Smith in Horry County for helping to post the hundreds of photos we take to findagrave. To Michael Johnson of Horry County for always being helpful with photographing, posting photos and keeping an eye on me while working in a cemetery that's somewhat remote. Michael truly has a keen eye.
I remember that old saying "It's easier to plow around a stump" when I work on findagrave. Sometimes it's like that. Most times though, I'm lucky to work with other contributors who welcome contact, check their edit requests regularly, and are cordial. Oh, if we all were like that! Oh, wait, that would be a perfect world... not possible.
The more people we have working together, the fewer people we have to work against. The more we do together, the more we get done. The more we learn from each other, the better our results.
A difficult stone can reveal many secrets with a simple spray of water and toothbrush, or aluminum foil wrap and soft toothbrush to obtain an impression. (See memorial #51880376).
PLEASE no flour, shave cream or chalk.
As a volunteer with Horry County's Historic Cemetery Registration Project, we see many unmarked graves, some deteriorating wooden crosses. The goal of this project is to gather information for county records. We also offer our photos to findagrave.
Horry County is proud to have received South Carolina's "2011 J. Mitchell Graham Memorial Award, the competition's top honor, for it's project to preserve an estimated 450 historic cemeteries in the county's unincorporated areas-approximately one for every 2.5 square miles."
(this quoted portion taken directly from Vol. 22, number 3, p 6, County Focus Magazine, South Carolina Association of Counties).
Without the guidance, suggestions and help from contributors Roger and Karen Lambert, Don Pigate, Barbara Lehman, Tawnya Gray, Robin Pellici Moore, and Deborah Spidle, much of my information posted would be incorrect and have many holes in it. I am still learning. I am grateful for their help.
My personal belief: "To each of you reading this, if you are a cemetery walker, then God Bless for your energy. And if you document your findings with photos or entries on fag.com, God Bless again and I'm grateful for your work done and your future efforts. Each grave contains someone's loved one who has passed away. Each life had meaning and still influences those left behind. We carry our loved ones in our hearts even after they are gone from this earth."

Walter Van Dukes was born 11 April 1952 when his mother was 20 years old. He was her second child. He was named for my husband. I have been doing the family genealogy for years. The only child of the first wife was Nina Jo and Mattie raised her. Please correct it.
|Shawn Page Larimore||RE: Re Thomas Beaty|
Thanks Susan, just so you know this is my Maternal 4 times great-grandfather... thanks for all your help I really appreciate it!!!!
|Darrell Landrum||RE: By the way|
Thank you all the kind words Susan :) Actually, I have only done the duplicate memorial once. And, if I remember correctly, the good people running the sited did in fact delete the other one after they could not contact the member (former) either. I have had so much help from members LJH and Art Wells in my short time here...great bunch of people all the way around here at find-a-grave!

Hi Susan, I have spent a lot of time in Spring Hill Cemetery here in Lynchburg and recently took a photo of this lady's grave marker that I posted to your memorial. The little flowers on her grave seemed to make for a wonderful photograph and I hope you don't mind that I posted it with the others that you have.

The time of day I was there was a bad time. The sun and shadows were bad. That was the only good photo I could get. I will try again later.

Good catch on the death date. I also rewrote the post to meet my current standards.
