Bio and Links
Bio Photo My name is George Muse Gaston and for the last many years I have been tracing my family ancestors by walking through old family cemeteries and checking with county registers where known relatives have lived. It all started when I was nine or ten, helping a 1st cousin on my father's side of the family. For several weeks "Aunt Puddie", as she was known lovingly by the family, and I would head out early in the morning searching for old grave stones from Savannah to Edgefield, South Carolina. I can't remember who we were looking for, but I learned a lot about our family and the social history of the South.

Family ancestors that I am researching are: Gaston, Muse, Devlin, McKell, Bell, Agnew, Bradley, Bigham, Montgomery, Pressly, Alston, Lyon, Robbins, Glenn, Miller, Flenniken, Faulkner, Moore, May, McDill, Weir, Goode, Greneker, Sligh, Clark, Calhoun, Caldwell, Gilruth, DeWolfe, Dickinson, Rosborough, Emory, Service, Barnhill, Boykin, Gugler, Wilkinson, Nicholson, Hemphill, Howard, Wylie, Strong, Gladney, Gardiner, Goslan, Ochiltree, Howell, Holloway, Ladd, deKoven, Witherspoon, Wiseman, Schley, Snellings, Sanders, Stinson, Lankford, Kyte, Kimball, Keiley and Kerr. Find-a-Grave has been invaluable with my journey.

You'll see many entries here from the old family church, Cedar Springs Associate Reformed Presbyterian Church (1780) in Abbeville County, South Carolina. I have fond memories of going there as a child and having "dinner on the grounds" after Sunday services. Here I have many relatives and always enjoy stopping by and having a long visit when I am in the area.

Since joining "find-a-grave" I have met many wonderful people and appreciate their help in my never ending search of ancestors past. If I can be of help to you in your searches, please email and I will try my best to assist.

Hello George! Just wanted to say hi from a cousin! I've recently discovered my Gaston, Corder, Love roots, even though we lived in SC for 6 years and had no idea we have a history there.
Are William and Susannah/Hannah Gaston your ancestors?
Thank you for your MANY wonderful contributions to Find-A-Grave!

Searching for Father of Robert Martin (1747-1800)
Dear George Gaston,

I am trying to determine whether the father of my husband's ancestor, Robert Martin (1747-1800) who was married to Agnes Nancy Lindsay (1755-1840) and whose son was Jonathan L. Martin (1773-1853), could have been the same Robert Martin (1729-1811) that you mention in your comment on the Find-A-Grave page for Elizabeth Martin McVea (#47137133):

"Robert Martin mentions his daughter in his Will dated, September 17th 1810.... 'my daughter Elizabeth McVea...' "

In his will, was there also any mention of a son Robert that fits the description of my husband's ancestor? Thanks so much for any information or guidance you can provide!

Best regards,
Valerie Edwards
