Bio and Links
Bio Photo I encountered the website quite by accident while researching family members. Immediately I recognized the value of this resource for future generations.

I have been reluctant to readily discard family histories encompassed in the vast collection of funeral programs acquired through years. Find A Grave affords a perfect opportunity to share the valuable information contained in these documents.

My goal is to share accurate data as recorded in these documents or from my personal knowledge in hope that it will be helpful to others.

Current geneaological focus is on descendants of (1) Antrum Lesesne (Nero Lesesne, Derry Lesesne/ Lesane, Abram Plowden, Effie/Affie Plowden, Titus Abraham) and (2) Luke & Sarah Davis of South Carollina (Sumter and Clarendon counties).

Your monument #160122347 is a duplicate.

The above mentioned person is in the wrong cemetery. You have her in Summer Hill Cemetery which is located on Schmoe Road and her obituary states she is buried in Simmon Hill which is located in Dixie.

I just thought I'd let you know so that she may be placed in the correct cemetery.

Thank you in advance.

You have 2 memorials for this lady: #173559877 in Manning Cemetery, and #173558522 in Hickory Grove Baptist Church Cemetery. Her obit shows family plot at Manning as her burial site. Was the duplication an oversight, or is there a reason you wanted both. Thanks!

RE: pero brown, edward brown
Oh Ok. Is there any way that I could obtain a copy of this book? I believe I have several family members buried there.

pero brown, edward brown
Hi, I was curious to know how you added both Pero Brown and his son Edward. Are you related to the family? I am researching this family.

Removal of information
I have no idea who you are and where you are getting this information from. I am asking for the removal of a photo of my grandmother which is also copywritten. Her name is Ruby Mae Stephens.
Please remove this asap.

Cemetery photographing
I just sent you an email, but it bounced back as mailer-damon or whatever that thing is. Have you changed your email address from what is showing on your findagrave profile page?

Here's my message:

Hi Mary, I've forgotten where you are, if you are in Berkeley County or nearby. doesn't matter-Would you please reply. I've got a friend who knows where some cemeteries are in Berkeley County that need to be photographed, but she needs to have someone to work with, so she won't be going alone-she's been doing this for decades but at this point doesn't want to go by herself. Would you get back with me please. She is primarily interested in the black cemeteries (as am I) and preservation of that information. She needs a photographing buddy. If you reply by email, that's fine. If you wish to phone me: 843-907-2534 is my cell. Leave me a message and a ph number I can call you back. I don't answer my phone if I do not recognize the number coming in-too many phishing calls, too many marketing and political phone calls. Thanks and I hope to hear back from you at your earliest convenience.

You have a duplicate memorial on Peter in this cemetery. The only thing different is the MOD. Can you please delete one? I submitted this request through edits a while back, but it must have been missed. Thanks
