Smiths Plantations
Hello, my 2nd great grandmother was owned by the Smiths. She was from Abbevile. Does you family have any records of slaves they may have kept?

Unknown Gravesites are KNOWN
There is a known burial location for at least three of the unknown burial memorials you have created.

I have established and photographed the two cemeteries in which these people are buried, and to which I was taken by descendants during a personal visit to South Carolina.

Chiles Family Cemetery in Greenwood County, SC
Perrin Family Cemetery in Greenwood County, SC

I have discovered today that you have entered memorials to the following as "Unknown Burials":

William Chiles # 103757341
Samuel Perrin # 99470362
Eunice Chiles Perrin # 98218970

Under the Find A Grave rules:
"In regard to duplicates, a memorial with a correct known burial location will always be preferred over an unknown burial location."

I am requesting that you delete the above memorials as Find A Grave will not permit duplicate memorials. If I don't hear from you, I'll refer this to Find A Grave, but the recommended process is to contact you first.

RE: Lucy Smith mem# 98581261
I have no idea what you are talking about. I did not request Lucy Smith's memorial. I'm not even related to her. Perhaps you have me confused with someone else.

RE: Lucy Smith mem# 98581261
I have no idea who Lucy Smith is, but I urge you to read the "Help with Find a Grave: Frequently Asked Questions" at this link: You will learn a lot about Find a Grave. You may want to pay particular attention to the question dealing with adding memorials when the burial location is unknown: Memorials are not supposed to be added for people when you do not know the location of their grave.

Re: Ellen Neilson
Using the cemetery's GPS program, I went to Philadelphia 163. I found the entrance marker for her plot. However, there were no stones of the Neilson family on the site. The cemetery listing of individuals that are buried there can be found at:

I added the same pictures to all those buried at that plot with the Neilson name.

Smith Connections

I am trying to connect up my "SMITH" relatives. With the name SMITH, genealogy can be very difficult. My ancestor "Samuel Smith" was born about 1827 in South Carolina. I catch him on the 1850 census in Mississippi. This is when it gets difficult...I don't know where in South Carolina he is from. I found a "lead" with the SMITH family of Abbeville County, South Carolina...

#1 Samuel Smith's first child is named "Marshall Smith". That is a unique first name...maybe named after the maiden name of your Joel Smith's spouse?

#2 Another son, "Hilria Abner Smith" ... Who went by "H Ab Smith"...I thought maybe a connection to Abbeville County, South Carolina.

#3 Another, possibility ... My "Samuel Smith" middle name was rumored to be "Wiley" ... There is a "Wiley Smith" living in Abbeville County, SC. I don't know if that SMITH is connected to your family...

#4 Another thing...this is purely subjective...but I was looking at "Joel Smith" and a daughter of Samuel Smith and facial bone structure seems to look similar...

I don't know...

I might be totally wrong...but with have to go off leads...

RE: Wow
Hi again! Yes, that is the only Quaker cemetery in Newberry. The Meeting House used to stand there somewhere. That M,E very well may be her. Does the death date match up?

Mary Elizabeth Miles Marshall
Hi Susan! My name is Anita and I'd like to welcome you to FindaGrave! I saw the request you posted for Mrs. Marshall. However, this grave isn't going to be findable. I looked on the Newberry County Cemeteries website and neither of the Marshalls are included in the survey of visible graves at that site. The cemetery was in terrible disrepair and some kind people came a few years ago and cleaned it up, marked and documented what could be found. I hate when a grave is lost to history but, unfortunately, it happens. If I can be of further service to you please let me know!

RE: martell
Thanks for letting me know...I'll photoshop the info on the picture, so I know that they are there. (I keep a folder of all the gravestones that i look-up for people)
I do that with my family members that have unmarked graves. I try to get the gravestones next to their plot so I have a reference point if needed.
Will be glad to do any further look-ups needed.

If you do a "photo request" on the memorial you want a picture of, someone will go take the picture. There is a wonderful man that lives less than a mile from the cemetery and has taken just about all of my photo requests.
