Bio and Links
Bio Photo My name is Tonya Sapp Hames. I was born & raised in Laurens, SC & lived there for 25 years. I now live in Ladson, SC, with my husband, Stephen, and son, Christian.

I stumbled upon FAG by accident when I Googled my father, Robert E. Sapp, who passed away in 1991 & his name came up on this website. I have always been fascinated by genealogy. I have mostly been researching the following family names: Sapp, Nelson, Moore, Helms, Ball, Story, Belk, Kell, Woody, Fuller, Campbell, Richards, Myers, & Taylor; along with Hames, Crowder, Gregory, Kirkley, & West. However, along the way I have been doing other genealogy work as well. I am a FAG County Keeper emeritus for Dorchester Co., SC.

If you have any information that may help me with my research, please feel free to contact me. Also, when reviewing any of my work, if you see that I have made any error, no matter how large or small, please do not hesitate to contact me & let me know. I will ask, that when contacting me, you please do so in a respectful manner & allow for the corrections to be made. As FAG is NOT my full-time job, I do NOT work on my FAG information everyday, therefore, quick fix items will be taken care of in a more timely manner than other items which may take more research to complete.

Hello, Tonya, on this memorial can you fix it so that John Edmunds photo is first and mine below his. I just found out he was my father and I never got the chance to meet him so I left a note and flowers and I thought that he and I can at least be together on this memorial page. I think I look a lot like him at least when I was a baby in this photo. Memorial Page #30856873.

transfer request
I don't know why I didn't ask you to transfer Joseph Lynch, the husband of Harriet Lynch, when I asked you to transfer Harriet to me. Joseph's number is 31020410. If you would transfer him to me, I would appreciate it. If not, that's okay, too.

Hi Tonya,

Would you be willing to transfer memorial # 39679381 to me? Mr. Rennie was my grandfather. I already maintain his wife's memorial.

Thank you,

Miranda is right. Rachel Davis Guess is not the daughter of Joel and Hannah Hembree. This should be changed. I have sent you an edit removing the parents.

Williams Cemetery 1
Hi Tonya,

I have recently had someone ask me about the location of the Williams Cemetery 1 in Spartanburg, SC, but I haven't been able to locate anything on it, besides what is here on Find A Grave. Saw that you had created some entries for this cemetery. Could you tell me where it was located?
