Hello, I am Dale Welch and my family line goes back to the Lucas family who are buried in the "EGGER'S " Family cemetery in Chester, Co. S.C. I have been to the cemetery and it is in need of great repair. It would be wonderful if as many descendants as have been reported on this forum could pool our resources and restore that cemetery. It is in a grove of hard wood trees on a hill. Unfortunately, it is located in a pasture and no fence around it. The stones are broken and few are left standing. Also, there are some Smith's buried there. Does anyone have information on the connections between the Egger,Lucas, Smith, Johnsey families?, I would greatly appreciate your help in clearing up some questions I have. I do know that origionally there was a church building where this cemetery is located. At the present I cannot recall the name but I do have it in my records somewhere.
Thanks for any consideration and information. Dale Welch Chester, S.C.
