Bio and Links
I am now obsessed with this ancestry stuff! I have been an avid fan of Findagrave for about 6 years. However, I did not sign up until I decided to post some of my photos. I live in Huntsville, AL but grew up in Scottsboro, AL. I guess you can say that I specialize in Jackson Co., AL cemeteries. My relatives and my husband's relatives are scattered throughout Jackson Co. (Scottsboro, Woodville, Stevenson, etc). Please let me know if you need a photo and I will be glad to try to get it. I do spend most of my weekends in some cemetery - even multiple cemeteries !! By the way, please feel free to use my cemetery photos of any of your friends and/or family. I take them for a reason. That reason is so the person who finds the photo is thrilled to see it just like I was when I found my first photo on Findagrave. Credit given for the photo would be appreciated.

Hi Beth...I had to take a moment and express my gratitude for all that you do for Find A Grave. I have been researching my birth family and thanks to you have so many images of headstones which have provided information to help me get the correct data for my Ancestry tree. In 2010 I went to meet my Aunt Della in Fort Payne. She is now 100 years old and I was there this year for a family reunion (my first one)and saw her again. I'm from Ohio but my family is all over the area you're from...I too have a passion for cemeteries and fill grave requests. I spent four summers cleaning and documenting just one local cemetery 3,500 graves and have over a thousand grave requests done. We are a crazy bunch us grave runners but the effort is well worth it...Finding and meeting my family has changed my life. So please know every time I get an image you took I'm so grateful. I'm hoping to come back next year. Maybe we can meet and I can thank you in person....I credit you every time I add an image. And yes, I get excited seeing each and every one. May blessings fill your life every day. My heart is in the South. Dianne

William Hopper / Daisy Cobb Hopper
I wish I could help, but I'm not the one who linked them together (note the asterisk next to Daisy's name on William's memorial) and therefore do not have that capability. You'll have to contact the owner of Daisy's memorial and have her delete the link to William. Sorry!

L. Gonce Photo Request

I have just discovered what I believe to be an error in L. Gonce's (#91305275) memorial and burial location. There is a very good website for locating burials in Lauderdale county cemeteries, ( and it has no listing for a L. Gonce in the Florence City cemetery. The memorial has a obit posted that states that L. Gonce had children living in the Shoals area, but that he died in Deland, FL and his body was sent to Stevenson, AL for the funeral service and burial in that city cemetery. I believe that the creator of the memorial (Wanda Quinn Bradford) has mad an error in posting L. Gonce memorial to the Florence cemetery. You might want to do some follow up with her. Again I am sorry that your request has went unclaimed for so long, but after attempting to fill it, L. Gonce is not buried in the Florence cemetery.

Thank you Mrs. Presley for doing my photo request for me! It'll aide my search in finding his grave for when I do Civil War decorations.
