Bio Photo I AM SO SORRY NOT ANSWERING INQUIRIES AND UPDATEA BUT I HAVE BEEN IN 5 HOSPITALS AND 2 REHAB CENTERS SINCE MARCH 30 DUE TO AN AMPUTATION AND A SUBSEQUENT CASE OF GASTRO-PERESIS. WAS COMAED FOR ABOUT 5 OF THOSE WEEKS. TRUST ME I DID NOT FEEL LIKE GETTING ON THE COMPUTER.
I WILL TRY TO PLAY CATCHUP AS SOON AS I CAN

I have been working on family history now for 37 years. I am originally from Lancaster, SC now residing in Columbia, SC. I have travelled the country looking for grave sites related to Youngs, Swrote:
teeles/Steels, Heglers, Williams, Stewmans, Dentons, McCains, Blackmons, Stogners, Finchers, Manns, Lowerys, Hartsells, Miskelleys, Catoes, McManus', McAteers and others. Any information on any of these families will always be appreciated. Thanks to all those who have been so great at helping and transferring and leading me to the right places to get the family together. (Sorry if I ask for the aunts, uncles, cousins, the great aunts and great uncles and the such. They are family and if you are not related I don't understand the problem.) I do not mind transferring any memorial that I've created that is not in my family group(except for spouses) Please email or leave a public message, Thanks ever so much again. PS- an occasional statement has been made about the number of memorials managed vs created. I have requested to manage a number of memorials of a family member who passed away in order to keep the work up on the family history.

Billie Morgan Welsh 142753296
Just wanted to let you know that I requested that Billie one of the wives listed for Thomas Jennings Welsh be removed from memorial due to the dates. He died many years before she was born.

John and Isabel Catoe
Mr Young, I have walked all over Bethel Cemetery in Bethune looking for the graves of John and Isabel Catoe and when I didn't find them I searched find a grave and found them in a different cemetery. The Find A Grave# for John Catoe is 42471478. The number for Isabel Henrietta Sowell Catoe is 42471498. You have them in Bethel under the numbers, 80600855 for Isabel, and 80600993 for John. I will also let the other memorial holder know.

McManus Family
Hello I am the granddaughter of Vernon McManus (Ira & Annie McManus). I have traced our history back as follows:

Annie McManus (& Howard) --> Effie McManus --> Annie Hegler --> Mary Cato --> Jane & Russell Sowell

I was wondering if you had any information on who may have been Jane or Russell's parents and what area they may have been from (Lancaster?)

Thanks so much!!

RE: Theodore Merten Alexander
Yes he is the one. I'm not related by blood to him, his sister Ona Alexander married my half brother's great grandfather Zeubulon Goodwin as his 2nd wife.

I found another descendant of Theodore today, I just sent her the two pictures that I have of Theodore. I'm waiting for her to confirm that the pictures are truly him, unfortunately hardly any of my pictures have names on them.

I'll let you know what I find out.

Theodore Alexander
Hi Robert,
Are you related to Theodore? I believe I have a picture of him and Dona.
