Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been a part of Find-A-Grave since late 2008. After my grandfather passed away, I began looking into my family tree and I haven't stopped since! I am currently the Executive Director of the Simpsonville Genealogical Research Room, and the author of Images of America: Simpsonville, released in Summer 2016.

In researching my own family tree, some of the surnames that I am most interested in are Windsor, Blease, Matthews, Young, Ross, Heinrichs, Westmoreland, Staton, Duncan, Hill, McKee, Traynham, Whitman and Green. They are mostly located in South Carolina, North Carolina, Alabama, Georgia, and New York.

My time is currently split between Maryland, where I am pursuing a graduate degree, and Upstate South Carolina. I now rarely fulfill photo requests, but I frequently update memorials and I will be happy to make any changes or transfers requested.

Just wanted to drop you a note to say "thank you" for managing and updating Fed Hughes' page. So many times folks are quick to point out what we've done wrong and not stop to appreciate what we've done well. I appreciate your work here. Thanks again.

Westmoreland / Williams
Dear Andrew,
I was so thrilled to find this site and the page that contained the info about my great-grandparents and great-greats. William Berryman Williams and Martha Ann Westmoreland Williams were the parents of my grandmother, Winnie Williams Frick. Grandmother would often say, with pride, "Now, Mama was a Westmoreland," so I figured that meant something.

William Berryman Williams was superintendent of the American Spinning mill in Greenville.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

You're very welcome! I live near Augusta but when my sister and I go up to Cherokee, NC we try to pick out two cemeteries that are on the way that need cemetery photos. Flatwood was one of the two this week because it would be quick and because the requests had been there so long. Merry Christmas! :)

Got your message regarding Rita H. Price. I have changed the information and have asked the contributor who put in the news article to remove it. Thanks for getting this straightened out.

You're very welcome! I live near the cemetery so if there are others or even others in my area I would be glad to try and find them!

Dovie and Streeter Fisher
Hi Andrew! My name is Sarah Hoots. I am the Great Granddaughter of Streeter and Dovie Fisher and the Great Great Granddaughter of Joseph and Laura Garren who are buried at Gillespie Evergreen Cemetery in Brevard, North Carolina. I just wanted to say thank you for the pictures you posted of the markers of my family. You did a wonderful thing by making them public so that the extended family that cannot travel to Brevard to view them in person can now see what they look like. I hope to speak to you either in person or through email. I hope you have a blessed day!!

The section and lot numbers are wrong. I walked and walked and finally had to call the office. The correct numbers should be Section 39, Lot 705 for all of them. Thanks. I have also sent a message to the current manager of Martha's page.

Hi Andrew

I also have photos for

Mark Graham Johnston 7/12/1888 - 6/10/1947
Jessie Coogler Johnston 6/4/1891 - 11/3/1984

Could you make pages for them and send separate photo requests so I can upload photos?

Also, I have additional different photos for James Gordon Johnston. Would you also place a request for those too.
