Seems I have always enjoyed old cemeteries. It is great to have a site that will allow us to create a virtual safeguard for the preservation of old cemeteries. More and more vanish away each day due to erosion, time and just plain "progress".
My husband and myself were very active in military support. We are former members of the SC Chapter of Rolling Thunder, Greg was VP of the Legion Riders and the Jr. VP of the American Legion. He also held office of Commander at VFW Post 9811, where I held office of Jr. VP Ladies Auxilliary.
My husband served two tours of Vietnam. I am very proud of my honey. We lived a useful and full filling life.
Greg died July 31 from inoperable lung cancer. He was my soulmate and much missed. I will love him forever and a day.

Do not ask me to link an unknown burial without proof that they were cremated. Cremated has became a drop pocket for unknown burials. Many don't realize that cremation is against some religious organizations, parts of my own family included. To list one as cremated when they aren't is a total lack of disrespect for some's belief.
In regard to duplicates, a memorial with a correct known burial location will always be preferred over an unknown burial location. A member has thirty days to update the memorial to the correct burial location on recent deaths.
I recently had a stroke and surgery. I can not nor will not abide pressure. I follow the rules. This is supposed to be a fun past time, not a pressure cooker for unreasonable demands.

If you added name changes, you MUST provide source. I have more then a few which have had name changes several times, one five times! I have been verbally assaulted by "family "members" asking me what gives me the right to change the name other than what they added to the marker. PLEASE show respect to the family that added the stone to begin with. Everybody does not have a middle or nickname.
So without a source, I am forced by family members as well as other members to decline unless official source is sent.
