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.

Allie Murdock Reeves (1827-1905) Headstone photo
I've been active in findagrave for going on three years now, and had a photo request in for this 2nd great aunt's headstone for most of the first year. I recently returned to work on my ancestry family tree and decided to look at her memorial again, and there was your recent photo of her stone which included a clearly legible maiden name, which was the confirmation of identity I'd been hoping to see.

Appreciate your work ! I would like to post your photo onto my public tree with attribution to you.

RE: About Robert Wayne
Thank you. I just wanted to ask, thought you might be distant family or knew him from the military/Fort Rucker.
Thank you again.

Hello Don
I am sorry to hear of uncle Richards passing. I am Willard's oldest grand daughter, Elizabeth. I just did a random search for great grandma Mary and found this.

I'm pretty sure that his parents are Thomas Atwell & Margaret Forbis, not Richard Atwell & Sarah Jewell. James Andrew (aka Andrew James) Atwell is Richard & Sarah's son also buried at Houk.

Thanks, Vicki Jewell

Estie Tucker
Mr. Atwell
Records show that Estie Tucker 46625938
was the wife of Joseph T. Rogers who is related to me. Was there any gravestone reference at the cemetery to show this?
