About: I am physically disabled and I can do research on the computer on some days . This is how I keep my sanity because I love it and it is so addictive. I just never seem to tire of it because there is always a new fact to discover and always a new name to research. My cousin who was my research partner died, and I am now researching by myself. I always get excited when I discover a " find". I like helping people, and hopefully other people can help me. I've researched for close to 30 years or more. I took up from where my mother left off.

Researching: Steele, Wilson, Webb, Wallace, Jones, Martin, Merritt, Orr, Guyton, Roundtree, Welborn, Beeco, McCurdy

ShirleyM. Swillen Do you have an idea if this picture was made in South Carolina. I have a picture of a Griffin in my family in South Carolina which I need to submit and it looks very similar to this gentleman. All that is written on the back is Griffin- I think. I do not have the picture with me to check now, but I will check as soon as I can and also try to enter it on this site as well. We may be related!!! SMS

ShirleyM. Swillen My husband may very well have some idea of who this lady is related to. He was raised in Greenville, although he is younger. There were members of his family who were employed at American Spinning, and he lived in the Sans Souci area for 18 years. His parents were from that area for their entire lives. I have a Frances McConnell from Anderson County who married a Breazeale; however, she would have been much older than this lady. I will certainly check on it for you.
