Perse and Miller Families
Hi...Arthur Miller and Alice Ward Proctor were my parents. Will Miller and Nettie Perse were Arthur's parents. What family tree are they mentioned in on Ancestry? I have a subscription and would like to check it out. Thanks!

Elmwood Cemetery requests
I received your message about Elmwood. I have already accepted the edits you recently sent. I see you have a number of photo requests for Elmwood, too.

If you can call the cemetery office at (205) 251-3114 and get the block and lot for these requests, and send it to me, I can try to get them photographed. I go to Elmwood every couple of weeks or so at least, so I can get them pretty quickly.

I don't know how many they will look up for you on one phone call, probably not as many as you are wanting, but you should be able to get a few with each call at least.

RE: Bethel Cemetery
Find A Grave has it messed up. There are 3 cemeteries (Bethel, Old Bethel, and Woodruff Memorial) located together, separated by roads. Several years ago people had entered many of the graves in the wrong cemetery so Find A Grave combined Bethel and Old Bethel together on their website. I included that info because some people want it to be correct in their personal records.

Bethel Cemetery
I have posted photos of

Nancy Lanford Beason
Find A Grave Memorial# 116933229

Zachariah Lanford
Find A Grave Memorial# 73767858

Zillah Lee Posey Lanford
Find A Grave Memorial# 73768298

They are actually buried in Bethel Cemetery, not Old Bethel. Find A Grave has combined two different cemeteries.


James Everette Leatherwood
Find A Grave Memorial# 147427715

Is a dupe of

James Everette Leatherwood
Find A Grave Memorial# 60739216

There is already a photo for James on his original Find A Grave Memorial. He is buried in Bethel Cemetery.


Nathaniel Woodruff, Sr
Find A Grave Memorial# 97703140

Nathanielís Find A Grave memorial says his grave in unmarked. Iím not sure where he is buried, but if he is buried here it is most likely near the Woodruff Family plot. The Woodruff Family Plot which located in the Old Bethel Cemetery.


Priscilla Calvert Leatherwood
Inscription: P. L.
Find A Grave Memorial# 178289224

Priscilla in not listed in Sartanburg GS cemetery book and I donít have a picture for her.


Mary Melissa Leatherwood Page
Find A Grave Memorial# 177394209

Mary is not listed in Sartanburg GS cemetery book. I believe she is probably buried beside J Delbert Page in an unmarked grave. J Delbert Page is buried in Bethel Cemetery.

Memorial Park in Memphis

You recently requested a grave photo at Memorial Park Cemetery in Memphis. This cemetery is quite large and without a plot location it is near impossible to just stumble upon a requested grave.
I am happy to try to fulfill your request though if you will contact the office and ask for the plot location.
Just let me know, or post the plot on the memorial and I will try to fulfill it in the near future
The office can be reached at (901) 767-8930

Sealy Ann Ritter Pickle
I posted a picture from the Pickle Cemetery in the Turon Quadrangle. It was posted sideways. I have tried every possible orientation without luck. I will not be in that part of the world for several months. I am going to delete the picture until I can get there with a different type of camera.

Thanks for all the additional information on those buried in New Bethel! You have done your homework on those families!
