Bio and Links
I am retired. I have been doing genealogical research on my family lines for about 20 years. For the past few years I've put my research on the "back burner" but now that I've retired, I'm back into it. I enjoy going through cemeteries and each headstone tells only a very short history of that person's life. I now get to do several of my favorite hobbies, all at the same time, history, genealogy research, photography, walking through cemeteries, and motorcycle riding.
Not all of the headstones I list are family lines. If you find a correction or have additional information, just let me know.
If you have any ATWELL'S and transfer them to me, I'll take good care of them, but I will not transfer any ATWELL'S.
In the future, please use the change buttons that FAG has provided. I do check these to see if they are correct, so if it seems to be in error, I will decline them.
I will not link unknown burials.

I've started putting G.P.S. locations on some memorials. The accuracy is supposed to be within 16 feet, so this should put you in the close proximity of the memorial. Not too bad for satellites 12,600 miles in space.

Don, You have Mr. Hughes in the wrong cemetery. He belongs in the Pilgrims Rest BC Cemetery in Houston Co., AL near Wicksburg, AL. You have in him Pilgrims Rest Church south of Slocomb, AL in Geneva Co., AL.
All of his family is in the cemetery in west Houston Co., AL. Please remove him from this cemetery.

Gravestone Photo Permission
I am happy to see that you photographed the gravestone of William Alford (Memorial# 76780267).

I would like to add this gravestone photo to the non-profit Alford American Family Association's collection of Alabama Obituaries, where his obituary is (or will be) included. You can see the current collection at

May I have your permission to include your gravestone photos? If so, the photo caption will say:

Permission granted by the photographer, Don Atwell

And thanks so much for your gravestone photo work!

08/07/2016. .. I am writing again to ask you to please approve the edit I submitted weeks ago to link my uncle, Monroe Bryant Langford, to his parents, my grandparents, Otto Bryant Langford and Mabel Irene Langford. If you aren't going to do this, I will create another FindAGrave for my uncle to link him to his parents, my grandparents. It should not take you this long to approve the link.

William L. Kennedy (Kenneday) #93361887
Mr. Atwell, I am the great-grt granddaughter of William Londo Kenneday. His middle name was not "Lee" and this can be substantiated by record research which my mother did many years ago alson with marriage, census records, and other. I would also like to know the determination of his being a physician. In the meantime I will try to find out more information to help rectify this situation. Sincerely, Linda L. Kennedy Gamache.

#84654098 Daniel Moody Carnley
Daniel Moody Carnley died 4-8-2016. James & Lipford Funeral Home of Graceville, FL directed his funeral. You can check with them for his obit. Someone had him buried in Pleasant Grove UMC Cemetery in Washington Co., FL, instead of Pleasant Grove UMC Cemetery in Geneva Co., AL. I sent him or her a message and the memorial has been removed. I have the obit if you cannot get it from the funeral home. Thanks.
