Please take a moment and visit my family. Thank you so much.

If I have offended anyone, please let me know and I will remove the memorial of your loved one. If you aren't a part of Find A Grave, you can still contact me through the edit tab of the memorial. I don't mean to offend anyone. All memorials are created out of respect. The purpose of me adding names is because I believe that people should never be forgotten, and also I like to help people who are searching for their ancestors. I am so thankful for Find A Grave because not only have I found many of my ancestors, I have found many related family members alive.

I will be happy to transfer memorials. You MUST state the relationship with your ID number. All RUDE requests will be ignored!

Duplicates - These are errors, and not created on purpose. I search before I create a memorial and after every time. Please bring any errors or duplicates to my attention so I can correct them. If I have created a memorial and you create a duplicate, do not send me a message that the one I created is a dupe and for me to delete. I will not delete any memorials if you created a dupe. Don't create a dupe memorial just because you're related. If you are family, kindly ask for a transfer or you can add photos and send me information to be added and I'll be glad to add it. Please read the FAQ's for this site on creating memorials.

Feel free to use my photos 📷 as long as you give me credit and do not make any money off them.

Hillview Memorial Park Cem. Tallapoosa Co Al. He isn't the son of Thurman Pellom and Mattie Lou Heath Denney. I have tried to delete but I don't know if findagrave will delete it. See if you can correct this. Thanks!

Hi Dana,
Are you related to the McCluskey family? Noticed you have management of the three McCluskey brothers.

RE: Chuck Cook
When my Cook ancestor in South Carolina returned from the Civil War, this are was destroyed and devastated by Sherman's Scorched Earth March To The Sea. They gathered what was left of their families and moved to Wilcox County, Alabama.
I also found a clan of Cooks in Laurens county, SC, but have been unable to connect them to my known ancestors, who came from Virginia to the Sanford NC area, then further south to the Marlboro Township of South Carolina.
Thanks for your response. I will keep you in mind if I can connect to Laurens, SC.
Have a Blessed Day !

Open the picture I posted on her memorial for the information, but this person does not have a marker.

Dana, I have no info on our ancestors coming from Wilcox County, AL. Our 3rd GGF George Cook was from Laurens, SC.

Miss Frances
I think each of us who grew up in the south had a Miss Frances in our lives. Thank You for memorializing her.

Being half South Carolina Cherokee, I appreciate and respect your Native American heritage.
I have Cook ancestors from upstate SC and Wilcox County Alabama. Do you have any Cook ancestry in those areas.
