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.

William Washington Pugh # 141531630
Thanks for your time and efforts on Find A Grave.
Not questioning the info. But would truley like to know the source for the info. Rev Wm W Pugh is my Maternal G Grandfather.
You have his Mother and Wife named as Eugene.
"Spouse's Name:Eugene Pugh
Father's Name: Jim Pugh
Mother's Name: Eugene Reeves
Mother's Birthplace: Alabama
GS Film number: 1908534 , Reference ID: cn 20473 "

What is or where would i find this G S Film?
Is it a Government film? or some genealogical service?

Could you identify the source of this information.
His wife should indeed be the Eugenia Reeves Pugh 1861-1942 #141531631 you have him linked with. They had about 12 children. (I am hunting them for linking.). My Gmother is Luther Pearl Pugh-Roberson -Melvin. But i would like to find some record of his mother also being a woman named Eugene or any form of the name.

What I have is father James T Pugh 1818-1861 and mother Sarah Jane ?. I would like to get this right. and would appreciate any help you might share or offer.
Trixie Thompson Gibbons.

Memorial # 143696924
In reference to this memorial for William Bernard Easterling, please take this down, because Rev. Bernard is still alive! He is in assisted living in Dothan, Whitehall Assisted Living # 113. Apparently he had his name engraved on the stone when his wife died.

My husband was just talking to him on the phone.

Thank you for creating memorial 32746902.
I am requesting to have the memorial be transferred to me. Mr Edney is the father of my sons and I would like to eventually transfer to them. Thank you in advance and thank you for making contributions to many gemological records.

Transfer of Memorials
Dear Don Atwell,
I am trying to get another person to transfer my Great, Great Grandfather and Great, Great Grandmother's Memorial. The lady told me to go to the EDIT part and request a transfer, but when I go to the EDIT part, not of the things on the list say TRANSFER. Could you please advise me what she is talking about??? I did contact her again quite a few days ago that I could not find where it says transfer, and she has never answered me back.
I do not know who else to ask, and I was hoping you could help me.
Thank you, Rene (Atwell+Williams) Pavelchak at

Hi Don,
First we have some history, you added and kind enough to transfer the memorial for my father, #54234061.
I had a question for Winnette, but see that she is not well.
I also see that you are a Find A Grave friend.
I'm wondering if you might know the answer to my question.
She added 96741147, in my linage, recently I went to the cemetery and his marker is not there, along with others that are missing. I believe she posted, not from a visual of a marker, but from some record. Might you know what record she may have used? There is a lot of data provided on her memorial, I'd really like to know the source.
Don, I know this is a stretch, I appreciate any help.
