atokahood on Family Tree Circles
Journals and Posts
I have been wanting to know how I could submit pictures to Family TreeCircles for some tombstones for the King family.
Several of our King family, are buried in Laurelwood Cemetery in
Hill, SC-York County.
<\My mother was a king. She is buried there, also her parents, her great grandfather George Washington King and his wife Celia Mae Harrison King, but I think they spelled it something like Cealy or Sealy, etc.I forget.
William Monroe King and his wife Annie Lee Foster King are buried
there. He is the son of George Washington King. I saw once place that listed G. W. King as dyi8ng in York, SC., but he died in Rock Hill, SC.
William Monroe King died in Rock Hill, SC in 1935, at my mother's house.
His wife, Grandmother Annie Lee Foster King died in Rock Hill, SC-York County.
Their sons Clement Spurgeon, William Hugh, and Marion Frel King died in Rock Hill, SC. I think Uncle Frel is buried in a country cemetery at a church. I did not stay for the burial. Uncle Clement is not in Laurelwood either, but Uncle William Hugh King is. He died three days before Grandmother King died in October of 1967.
Uncle Arnold Lee King got killed working on the railroad when I was about five or six years of age. I was born in 1939. I was too small to remember where he was buried, but I could find out. I remember him, and when he died. I have pictures of some of the King tomb stones at Laurelwood Cemetery in Rock Hill, SC.
I think Aunt Myrtle Ruth King is buried in Laurelwood, where my mother Marie king Davis is buried. Aunt Ernestine King Stewart, is most likely buried there, also. Aunt Pauline King Dye, is buried in
the L A, Ca. area. That is all of William Monroe King and Annie Lee Foster King's offspring.
My mother, Marie (King) Davis was the granddaughter of George Washington King and Celia Mae Harrison. They married in Mecklenburg County, NC
Mother's parents were William Monroe King (son of George and Celia) and Annie Lee Foster King, who was from the area of Talledega, Alabama...Silver springs, that is now called Seale, Alabama.
Mother said that her grandfather George always said that he was from Ireland but we do not know anything about him, before that. We do have a list of his children, their marriages, and the names of some of their children. I knew, my great Aunt Mattie great Uncle Jeff's wife, and great Aunt Lizzie who married a Davis. My maiden name was Davis also. I knew great Uncle John King, also. His wife was Bertha Hinson. I met her once and, one of their granddaughters when she and I were teens. Her last name was Gordon.
Of course, I know Mother's siblings, their wives and children. Only Aunt Ernestine King Stewart is living now. We have a record of these and of George and Celia's children.
Celia caught her dress on fire on January 30 of 1897, ran out into the yard (in York County SC) and died that night.
I do have other information about some of them.
