Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born and reared in Greenville, South Carolina. I have been interested in research since the early 1970's. Up until 2007, I worked for the Bi-Lo Transportation Department in Mauldin, South Carolina. Since my illness in 2007, I do not get around like I did. My heritage is Barnett, Mosteller, Smith, James, Edwards, Dillards,Brawner and where ever the road leads me. My children's heritage is Davenport, Roberson, Howard, Pruitt and my family. I am a very detailed person and look for proof of where someone is buried. I request obituaries by mail since I can't walk anymore so I have time to research my family and try to connect the dots to get a complete picture

I have been researching all the family lines that run into my line for with each daughter there is a new last name. It has surprised how some names have crossed that lead back to me. One of my research tools are the Newspaper Obituaries for they tell me about that person's life to where it is not just a name on a tombstone. The father back you go you might have an ancestor whose tombstone has been destroyed or just plain don't have one. Because I am paralyzed to where I have to have someone with me 24 hours a day and if I could I would look for Graves but I can't.

I must admit when I started researching my family lines I did not know that I would have a rewarding experience reading their Obituaries or Wills. You learn so much about who they were and it becomes personal.

Find A Grave has brought the cemeteries to life and I must confess if all I wanted was to see names with dates I would go to the cemetery. Find A Grave is a Living Memorial to the person that his buried there. I must confess when someone is cremated the Obituary doesn't mention what was done with the ashes.

What saddens me the most when a land developers goes in and removes the stones and piling them up in one lump some not bothering to make a note of their names or dates.

ONE OF THE CONFUSING THINGS IN RECORDING IN DEATH INFORMATION ON LOCATIONS ESPECIALLY TOWNS LIKE PELZER AND WEST PELZER SOUTH CAROLINA. PELZER AND WEST PELZER ARE BOTH IN ANDERSON COUNTY BUT MANY ZIP CODES CAN PUT THEIR MAILING ADDRESS WITH GREENVILLE COUNTY. EVEN THOUGH THEY MAY RECEIVE MAIL THROUGH GREENVILLE COUNTY DOESN'T CHANGE THE FACT THEY ACTUALLY LIVE IN ANDERSON COUNTY.
ONE EXAMPLE IS THE ZIP CODE I HAVE 29611 SERVICES THREE DIFFERENT COUNTIES ANDERSON, GREENVILLE AND PICKENS COUNTY. I LIVE IN PICKENS COUNTY BUT MY MAILING ADDRESS IS GREENVILLE COUNTY.

I was just in Laurens Co for the annual BOLT reunion, these dates were one of the many topics for discussion, the family does not want to change anything since the headstone shows 1920, I have a copy of his death certificate and you are correct that it shows 1921.

So, Im stuck on this one.

thanks for your email,
Rick B.

I have added your information to the memorial and added links. I did not use your biography because it was typed in all capitals and this is against Find A Grave guidelines. -Bobbie

I do not understand why you are sending so many corrections on my family. Can you be more specific.
