Bio and Links
Bio Photo We are David & Effie. We were born and raised in upstate South Carolina. I found Find A Grave in 2009 and now David has joined me in a search for our "lost" family members. We sincerely hope that along the way our contributions to this site will help others find theirs.

We wish to thank those who have made memorials for our family members and those who have transfered management of them to us. We especially want to thank those who have made the corrections we requested, as correct and complete data is the key to accomplishing our goals.

Our primary sources of information for our memorials, other than direct knowledge of burial, are grave marker photos and obituaries. We use these sources as backup for our entries, as we DO NOT make any without proof of burial location.

Our motto is... to err is human, and to correct is necessary. Please contact us if you find an error on our memorials or if you have missing information that we can add to make an appealing and honorable memorial. We will gladly correct any errors on our entries, make additions, add links or transfer memorials if they are not related to us. (please use the EDIT tab and make a suggestion option on the memorial for any request.)

We understand that a photo says more than a thousand words, and is a very important part of family research. It is our pleasure to offer our photos for personal genealogical purposes. You may re-post on Find A Grave if you will have the courtesy to give us credit in the caption of the photo. Otherwise, DO NOT RE-POST!

Everyone is welcome to visit and leave a flower for our immediate family members listed below or any of our memorials and once again, we wish to thank all of our Find A Grave friends who have done a wonderful job in helping preserve our heritage and making this a wonderful site.

I gave Gus, Zeb and Tempie as parents. Please look things over and let me know if there is something else. You are right that the information needs to be correct or it will not help anyone. Thanks, Robert Jones

RE: Milford 137403547
Hey David,

If you don't mind, transfer the memorial to me since Milford Scarborough, Sr was my grandfather that I dearly loved. A lot of people get Milford Sr and Milford Jr mixed up that are not familiar with the family.

Thanks for the reply. Yes, I was looking and wasn't sure at that Joseph that was listed prior as a sibling, and then I found the "real" Joseph or Joe's memorial on Findagrave.

I appreciate this every much!

RE: 60749228 Lois Layton
Thank you. I cannot see from the photo who else is sharing Lois's marker, it's overshadowed by plants. I wish people would move plants (or hold them up) when taking a photo. I often set potted plants aside temporarily while taking a photo, or else push the plant foliage up & out of the way. Many times identifying an accompanying burial helps to get the family tree accurate.

I have been looking at these Layton families recently because a neighbor is kin, I found there were two Thomas Layton's of almost the same age in the same area, one was Thomas James Layton and the other was Thomas Joseph Layton. Lois's father is the ancestor of my neighbor through his oldest son Robert Herman Layton by his 1st wife, it took me a while to figure that out. And both men had a daughter named Lois. I still don't know his 2nd wife's maiden name, she's this Lois's mother, her children's death certificates just list her as Laura Frances Layton; either she was a Layton before she married or else the informant's didn't know. And both men married a woman named Laura Frances (the other Thomas's wife was a Canaday/Kennedy). I'm still not sure I have all the sources for both women right, or this Lois's mother's death correct.
