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.

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.

Hello Beth,

Thanks for the heads up. I added missing information to the prior Memorial for Dr. William Bogart Jr. and deleted the duplicate.

Hi Beth,

Thank you so much for your help! I've moved to Illinois and had not been able to visit my grandparents grave in over 15 years. I didn't remember the inscription at all. Thank you! It means a lot.
