I visited the Shiloh Methodsit Church Cemetery, Shiloh, Sumpter Co., SC in May 2004 and photographed every McElveen tombstone that I could find as well as some that seemed to be related.My gggrandparents, Sarah Elizabeth Byrd and John Kennedy "J.K." McElveen, are buried there with some of their sons and one daughter: Andrew Kennedy McElveen, Paul Byrd McElveen, Silas Binum McElveen, and Sarah "Lavinia" Ann McElveen. I am descended from their son, Daniel Feninel McElveen, who is buried in Antioch Baptist Church Cemetery, Live Oak, Suwannee Co., FL.
I can't identify the relationships of most of the other individuals who are buried in the cemetery.Does anyone have information on the other McElveens and how they are related to my Sarah and J.K. McElveen?
My gggrandparents' tombstone was knocked over and in pieces when I took the photos.It appeared to be damage by the work that was done on the new Church addition.Does anyone know if the Church or anyone has been able to place the stones upright yet?
If anyone would like a digital photograph of any of the tombstones or Shiloh Church itself, send me your e-mail address and I will gladly share with you.
