|Bio and Links|
I retired as an elementary school principal in 2000. As a person that sleeps only 4 hours a night that leaves 20 hours to fill. Sitting home is not an option. Now, I drive a school bus 5 hours a day and visit cemeteries every chance I get. I have never been to a cemetery that charged admission and seldom is there a crowd. My wife, Sandra, is of a like mind so it works well. We both enjoy the hunt and the thrill that comes with each discovery. Let us know if we can help. If you have additional information on one of my post or you are a relative and want ownership, I will gladly transfer it to you. Just ask. Oh! By the way just call me Doc!|
NOTE: Many times the family plot has names different from those on the headstone. I always attempt to provide a reference point for markers. Hope this is not confusing.
Quotes worth remembering:

"If you wonder about your 'roots' you have two parents, four grandparents eight great-grandparents and 16 great-great-grandparents, and by the time you go back 10 generations 300 years or so- you had 1,024 people from whom you are directly descended. --Mady Castro

Thanks so much for the pic! Very much appreciated!! When you have opportunity could you please edit it so it's not sideways? That happens to me too ... Again I thank you very kindly for taking your time.
|Kay Johnson Mann||FAG Memorial #'s for update|
"Sir Hi Richard",
I do think it is a very gallant service you are providing in your "retirement!" Thank you very much for the time and effort you spend in researching and setting up so many family memorials that benefit whole families, and the individuals who are seeking to learn more.
I appreciate your response regarding updates to memorials of certain family members of mine. (And thank you for making them for my grandmother, Elizabeth Cowan Arney.)
The Find A Grave Memorial #'s I would like to update, also, are:
William Walter Hines #29956720
William Hogan Johnson #51909950
Thanks so much, Kay J. Mann
PS So - if I wish to up date other memorials, may I make a request, giving the memorial # - and you will allow the edit?

Thank you so much for taking their headstone photo. I only knew that my great great grandfather was buried in Gaston County, but I had no idea where--and I didn't know if either had a headstone in place. Thank you so much.

Thanks so much for the grave marker photos. I really appreciate it.
Thanks, also, for all the wonderful "volunteer" work (or perhaps more of a "labor of love") on Find A Grave. Most don't know that none of us are "paid" employees but do this to preserve the memory of those who have gone before us.
You have helped me on several occasions with my Beauchamp & Davis cousins in Gaston County & I thank you so much!

|Remember me||RE: Gambles in Turbeville|
No, don't need to be combined, seems that a portion of the families created Turbeville Southern Methodist and from what I understand, were given the portion of land across the dirt drive as "their" cemetery.

I suggested edit of birth and death dates for J. Robert Henry and his wife Mattie l L. Owen Henry. There big stone just has the year, the smaller stones have the dates. I attached the smaller stones and a picture of the site. This way you can see where I got the dates from.

|Elaine||Thank you, Mr. Jordan|
Thank you so much for posting a photograph of the Dobbins family plot at Oakland Cemetery in Gaffney, SC. My great-great grandmother is buried there and I went there today to find her grave. Without your picture, we never would have found it (we used the tree in the background as a reference and after about 30 minutes of driving around, finally located it). It meant a lot to our family to locate that grave. Thank you again!

Doc: Many thanks for such a quick turnaround on edits. All the best. Bill Preston in Saratoga NY
Thanks for the fast response to transfer James Taylor b. 1905 to me. I have made the correction. Now please transfer James C Taylor, Jr b. 1934 and d. 2001 so I can make family connections. Thanks. Lorraine in Idaho
