Bio and Links
Bio Photo I live next to a very large cemetery in Columbia SC and have always had a fascination for graveyards. I walk my dog in Elmwood Cemetery every day and find myself intrigued by the names of the people buried there. I am saddened by the fading names on some memorials and interested in the many stories that are buried here. I am happy to provide information and photographs about the various memorials that I find here and love to do local research.

RE: willard lucas
In addition to the headstone photo you requested, I also photographed at least 7 Lucas stones in IOOF and several more Lucas-related headstones. You might want to check those out in the event that those memorials help you in your home movie collection quest. Also, be sure to click on each photo as I often put additional information in the caption that may be useful. How kind of you to do this research! I wish you well & hope the photos help with your efforts. Good luck!

Patricia photo
Maybe that stone photo on Patricia just needs to have a memorial created for her, then that photo posted.

Looks like the stone photo on this memorial is not the right photo. Would you take a look?

Childs Cemetery location in Columbia
There is quite a bit about the location of Child's Cemetery in Columbia. I googled Childs Cemetery Columbia SC and got over 4 hits describing the project and location. Am thinking that permission would be needed to go on the property. Here is some of what I found:
Sonya Renae "Mama Nae" is the Project Coordinator for Reclaming Childs Cemetery. The cemetery is located at 2000 South Beltline Blvd., on the grounds of Intertape Polymer Group; f/k/a/ Anchor Contentional in Columbia, South Carolina.

Thank You
Thank you for capturing the images of my grand and great grandparents. I visited several times but for some reason I never thought to take them.
