Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've been doing research for about 32 years and have over 451,000 people in my database. I'm slowly trying to add what I have to Find-A-Grave. What a great resource! I've collected much information from here and hope I can return the favor.

I moved near Augusta, GA, in 2011 (after living near Camden, SC, for close to 30 years), have been married for 40 years (yes, to the same man), have two grown children and two absolutely perfect grandchildren. I still work full time and get out to "see dead people" whenever possible. My son tells me I need to get a life.

I work hard to get my information as accurate as possible and am thankful when other contributors do the same. I'm happy to make requested corrections or consider transfers, but please use the "Edit" tab on the memorial. It's easier to manage the emails that way, and it gives me a link to the memorial and your profile if I need to leave a message. If you request a transfer, please tell me the relationship to the person. Thanks!

If you're a visitor to Find A Grave without an account, please don't send a message without including a way to respond. If you don't have an account, then no email address is given in the message I get, nor is there a link to a profile where a public messages can be left, so I have no way to respond.

As far as pictures go, feel free to add what you like to any of my memorials, but remember that unsponsored memorials are limited to five pictures, so please make them worthwhile. And remember, don't post church/cemetery photos on memorials -- they belong on the main cemetery page.

Re: William D. Yarbrough, 172276870
Thanks very much for sending William's obit which confirms his nickname "Peewee." I've added info to my records and to the memorial. I suspected the obit might be the source. I appreciate your help! ~Barbara

PS. Which package at Ancestry includes the older newspapers? Cost?

William D. Yarbrough, 172276870
Hi Nancy,

You recently requested the nickname "Peewee" be added to William's memorial page. I noticed in Ancestry.com records for William that his obit appeared in "The State," on 8 Aug 1955 (he died on 7 Aug 1955). Is the obit where the info about his nickname comes from or is there another source?

Thanks for your help,
Barbara

RE: Grave Transfer Request
So basically, you just grab graves and memorials that you have zero connection to and when contacted by family, refuse to transfer. I suppose building your memorial count feeds your over-inflated ego. People like you convince yourself that you are a preservationsist, when in fact you are the scourge of Find-A-Grave. Find-A-Grave should oust "collectors" like yourself. Fortunatly, I can simply create a duplicate memorial that can be "family" managed and contain ancestry and historical content that only a family member can conntribute.

I deleted my entry. I always provide the cemetery to others if they don't have it but not everyone does the same so thanks for the catch.
Have a great day,
Diane

RE: Re: photos at Cedar Grove
Done, and thanks for bringing this to my attention. Often I get carried away when posting photos. Thanks for keeping me on balance.

Jacob Derrick Family Cemetery
I have finally located this cemetery, through a senior ancestor. It is not in Lexington County, as noted on Find A Grave, it is actually in the deep woods on now private property in Upper Richland County in what was previously known as the Dutch Fork area (now called Irmo for mailing purposes.
I am scheduled to be escorted to the cemetery next week when the property owner is available.
I will post the photos and give you a heads up. I understand there are several legible stones there.

RE: Henry Shealy, CSA, Leesville, SC
So, So True, as you are aware you simply cannot be effective with genealogy in this area without an understanding of the devastating effects, especially in the midlands of South Carolina, of Sherman's Scorched Earth March To The Sea, and the continuous marauding of this area during and after the war. As I mentioned earlier, I have been doing some extensive work in the Leesville, SC area, it has truly been a chore, simply based on the war and later, the building of Lake Murray and the cemeteries and homes that now lay under over 365 feet of water.
Evidently you have worked this area extensively, as your name is very visible.
Thanks For All You Have Done And Continue To do.

Henry Shealy, CSA, Leesville, SC
Nancy,
I noticed your comments pertaining to markers for Henry in the Cedar Grove Lutheran Church Cemetery, and the Union Lutheran Church Cemetery.
I have been working a lot in this area and in those cemeteries. I have come to understand from families that in this small community, this is not unusual. I have found several marker in both cemeteries. Apparently marriages and family considerations dictated which cemetery a deceased was buried, but if they had affiliations with both churches, markers were placed in both cemeteries.
As Always, THANKS for all your efforts and thoroughness !!
