Mr amd Mrs Daniels,
While researching Frances Jane "Rouse" Price for my daughter-in-law, I found your site.Thanks for all the great work you have done here!
Was wondering if you are familar with Estelle Herring or Rosa Morning Calder?? They are in this family as well.They are from Dillion Co.,S.C.
Also, noticed that your wife has the name Smallwood.I am descended from Col. James Smallwood, via his daughter Mary who married Cornelius Maddox.
Mary and Cornelius Maddox are my 7th great-grandparents..(via my Hudson family)
Hugs for a blessed day,Dorothy

Janie Herring
Hi. Janie Herring is my husband's great grandmother. She died in 1994 and he was blessed enough to know her. Most people don't meet their great grandparents. Some of the pictures you have posted for her and Stanley are ones that he has never seen before.

Do you have any others? Their daughter Susan Jane was his grandmother, she went by Betty Sue for many years and died a few years ago. I have some pictures that are newer and you may be interested in them. My email is and I am on ancestry under Martin family tree.

Thank you
