I now live in Columbia, South Carolina (after some time in Knoxville, TN & Boise, ID) and like just about everybody else here I'm into history, graves, etc.No real geneology motivation and I'm not writing a book. I'm just a political scientist (Ph.D., University of Tennessee) with an interest in political history (see my virtual cemeteries). For me, it's about a good excuse to hop on my BMW motorcycle and disappear... somebody's always buried somewhere.|

OOPS! I made a mistake on my 1st message. The name I am asking for is James B. McKean--not Grovenor,
|deanna french||Salt Lake Co. Photo; Grovenor|
I am a Vermont Civil War buff, and am presently working on a project to identify the last resting places of many "old soldiers" that had ties to Vt. Abel Grovenor is one such patriot. May I use the photo that you contributed to his Find A Grave Memorial, to post on the Vt. C.W. site? (www.vermontcivilwar.org)
You woyld receive credit for this.
Yhank you for your consideration.
|Saratoga||RE: Directions to Cemetery you Photographed|
Bob, I'm not completely sure, but this is where I remember. Get on Russell St. in Orangeburg and head toward town. When you get to Boulevard st. make a right, or West towards Clafin University. The cemetery is about two block from the intersection of Russell and Boulevard on the left side of the street. It could also be on Magnolia st. which runs parallel to it. It's been four years since I've been there and can't be 100% sure. You may want to contact the Historical Society to see if they can give you better directions. https://www.google.com/maps/place/Church+of+the+Redeemeremail@example.com,-80.8575468,16z/data=!4m2!3m1!1s0x0:0xd488698a2ea7bec1

|Gypsy Soul||RE: Patrick Noble pictures|
Here are the directions as best as I can give them, hopefully this helps. It will also be helpful if you get an SCDNR map for area 2.
Travel to Wellington, SC (most likely via highway 81 but may vary depending on exactly where you're coming from). Travel highway 81 until you find Road 196, there should be a sign that says Leroy's Ferry. Go left on to Road 135, stay straight until you find Road 563A, it's a sand road. The driveway that leads to the Noble graves will be on your right. If you have any questions, let me know.
|Gypsy Soul||RE: Patrick Noble pictures|
It's been a long time since I was there so I don't remember the exact road but I'll be glad to find out. I do remember that when you get there, you have to park in a small gravel/dirt area and then walk into the woods for quite a ways. When I was there, there was a pretty easy path to follow, it veered slight right then up a little incline. After that it leveled out and you can see the graves. It's located on game management property so take precaution if you go during hunting season. It's my understanding that the property was once a homestead for the Noble family. No house remains, just the graves. I'll get back to you on the road name or number ASAP.
|Spanish American War||Incorrect Photo Jas. Wm. Elmore, Sr.|
At the Highland Memorial Cemetery in Knoxville, you have the son's marker photo on the father's memorial.

I recently visited the Taylor Cemetery location at the map location identified by this link on Find A Grave(http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=cr&CRid=19243). The cemetery I found and the cemetery photo and graves do not match what I found. To sort this out I need to find and visit the Taylor Cemetery in your cemetery photo. Can you provide an address or driving directions?
Thanks so much!
I saw your listing and I was wondering if this is the same person? If so, does he have two resting places? Thank you

I just found your photo of Terrelʻs grave stone... may I use it on my private family tree? He is a distant cousin. I always give credit to the photographers who allow me to use their photos and am very grateful to all of them! Thanks so much...
|Sara Cooper||James Alexander Fowler|
I don't know how it is posted in Greenwood Cemetery that his name is Joseph A Fowler but his name is James and he was the mayor of Knoxville. I tried to look at the photos to see if you got up close and personal. The next time I go up there I will find his grave and take one. Are you related to the family? Would like to get a correction on this as soon as I can get us a close up.
