MattisonMemorials @ Gaines Chapel
Keith Brown agreed with you and switched the photos from Robert Boyd Mattison's memorial to Emma's. Thanks very much for catching that one.

RE: Emma & Robert Boyd Mattison
Are you asking for GPS for Greenville Presbyterian Church Cemetery also? I can get that easily enough, since I live nearby.

There is a Mattison graveyard kind of near (as a crow flies) the Gaines Chapel. The was only 1 rock that I could tell. I'll check through my things and see what I have written down for it. If I remember correctly, it was extremely had to make out the one or two letters that were on it.

Gaines Cemetery
I will look for my pictures made while I was at the cemetery.

I can also tell you that several of the entries made in Wayne Bratcher's 2 Abbeville cemetery books are duplicated and some are even incorrect.

Gaines Chapal M.E. Church in Vol Two on page 134 and Private in Vol One (1982 Book) on page 6 are the same, but have a few different listings.

The location is Williamson Hill Rd Donalds, SC.

The coordinates I have written down are 34 25.260 82 18.425 but that doesn't translate on Google Earth, so I just looked on there and got close to the actual spot as possible. 34 25' 15.88 N 82 18' 26.27 W.

I'm afraid I am not sure what you are asking me. My email is LOL! Conway

"It would be nice if someone could copy the cemetery record book so we could scrutinize the entries."

I am pretty sure that I have that book.

Actually it looks like 1857 was a very bad year for the Mattison family: Eliza died 1857; Emma died 1857; Grace died 1857; Robert Boyd died 1857.

Emma Mattison - Gaines Chapel
Did you happen to see Emma's Memorial ?

Emma Mattison, Memorial: Birth: 1852
Death: Mar. 24, 1857, aged 5 yrs, 9 mths, 9 days

Isn't it odd that she died the same age? and it appears the date is a matches. Is it possible the photo on Robert Boyd's is the wrong photo?

RE: Find A Grave memorial for Robert Mattison
I think 1857 is good for the year of death because he wasn't listed on the 1850 census which fits okay, but he also was not listed on the 1860 census. If he was born in 1857 and died at nearly 6 yrs old then that would make year of death 1863 meaning he should be on the 1860.

Find A Grave memorial for Robert Mattison
Hello Bill ... RE your suggestion ...
"Based on the Grave Marker image on Find A Grave I have calculated Robert Boyd's Birth date and death date that seems to read; March 24, 1857, aged 5 years, 9 months and 9 days."

Just want to confirm with you that you are saying the cemetery book transcription is incorrect, the date of death is not Aug 1857.
