Good Morning Everyone!!!
As you may be aware of, I recently visited North Carolina to see my son, daughter-in-law and first grandbaby! We had a wonderful time and the debate is still ongoing about whether to move there or not!
On the way home, I decided to make a slight detour. It was about 40 miles out of the way and about an hour to add to our trip but I decided I needed to do it. After all, after two trips through South Carolina without stopping for genealogy, what would you expect from a genealogy nut? I’m just glad my wife and daughters were willing to accomodate me.
We took a trip through Anderson, South Carolina. That’s the hometown of my great-grandparents and my second-great grandparents on the Stevenson side. It was very nice. Just past Anderson is a town called Starr. We stopped at the Starr Baptist Church Cemetery and took some pictures of some Stevenson tombstones. As goes with most unplanned visits, I’m sure I missed some stones. I did get some good shots of my 3rd-great-grandparents stones. Unfortunately, they had fallen over and were broken into 3 pieces but I was able to get them to look pretty decent. Here they are:
James Stevenson Tombstone
Jane (Seawright) Stevenson Tombstone
There were several other stones I was able to get pictures of and I will possibly get them on here soon.
Strangely, I put in a request on Find-A-Grave about 6 months ago for a picture of James Stevenson’s grave site and when I arrived home from North Carolina there was a message saying that my request had been fulfilled! It was a little better being able to be there and take it myself! I do appreciate the act of kindness though! It just goes to show that it was meant to be!
Have a great day everyone!
