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.

Memorial Images
Hi Don,
My name is Douglas C. Johnson (#47683562) and I was wondering if I could have your permission to use your photographs of the graves of Charles Watson King and Flossie King (nee Hayes) at Pinckard Cemetery in Pinckard, Dale County, Alabama and Jocklyn Vickers, Lewie E. Vickers and Mattie Virginia Vickers (nee Byrd) at Gardens of Memory Cemetery in Kinsey, Houston County, Alabama
on the FamilySearch Family Tree website. I would of course list it with full credit given to you for the use of the image.
Thank You,

Calton Erasmus Sellers
Married to my grandmother, Melissa nee Smith Darden. Calton did not died in 1866--he died in early 1900s---He married my grandmother, after the Civil War, in 1866. My grandmother was widowed w/2 children, my grandfather Bedford H Darden and his sister, Annie Caroline Darden when she married Calton. I have been unable to find Melissa's Smith family but do know that she had family in London England (bookstore) and after Melissa died, her children received inheritences from her England kin. My grandfather Bedford and sister Annie did not receive their inheritance--Bedford/family migrated from AL-FL-LA-TX-OK-AZ. Annie died from the flu epidemic in early 1900s, along w/2 of her children. I think Calton died in the early 1900s--I would like to have his death date. Thanks!
