Please allow thirty (30) days for edits... I have a life outside of Besides, if I don't get to it, FAG will automatically update it.

I appreciate additional info to memorials which I've created/maintain, but PLEASE LIMIT your info. This site is called FIND-A-GRAVE, not "Find The Genealogy History Of...".
I do not feel it at all appropriate to turn a memorial into an entire "genealogy work". Certainly it will be ONE, OF MANY valuable resources for genealogists in their research.

Need to contact a contributor who has submitted edits/Info for a memorial I maintain? Cut & Paste the following link, then enter their ID#.

***I DO NOT POST OBITS, post 1922***
Please refer to Find A Grave's rules of use under FAQ, by clicking on "Help with Find A Grave" in the left-side menu.


I will not list a person who does not have a DOD inscribed on their stone, unless I have verified their death. Many people have pre-ordered their cemetery markers for the "inevitable", thus their name and DOB being posted online BEFORE THEY DIE, is a violation to their privacy.

I endeavor to compare NAMES and DATES, so that I don't create an entry for someone previously listed by another variation of their name, so please let me know if I have duplicated a memorial.

NOTE: 99% of the headstone photos I've added are best viewed when "clicked-on".
Headstone photo's may be copied to other sites WITH the proper citation to, but photos of INDIVIDUALS MAY NOT be used on ANY OTHER WEBSITE without my permission.

RE: Malcolm B. Shelley's DOB
Birth date was found in two places - although the dates do not match, well, at least the years do not match.

Accidentally came across the information on The first birth date comes from the "Florida Death, 1877-1939" which shows Malcolm was born on Mar 20 1893 in Minnesota. Here is the link for the death index:

The second birth date comes from the "Florida Marriages, 1830-1993" which shows Malcolm was born on Mar 20 1894. Here is the link for the marriage:

Other information that might be useful is that he married Myrtle Estella Revels on Dec 4 1920. This too is based off the marriage index although Myrtle's last name is misspelled as "Revuls".

Thank you for your reply. Although the Vining family was from Georgia, they moved to and are buried in Bibb County, Alabama. My cemetery book is Bibb County, Alabama cemeteries and Acker Cemetery where Vinings are buried is included. I thought you may have been to the cemetery recently. I went there a couple of times to funerals back in the 80's. R.J.

Shadrick Vining
Was the Shadrick Vining born c. 1791, the brother of Jehu Vining ? He is buried in the same cemetery, but I don't see Shadrick born 1791 listed. He is in the Bibb County cemetery book that I bought years ago and hope it is in one of my boxes in storage. I first found him in Jasper Co., GA in 1820 and in 1830, 1840, 1850 in Newton Co., GA which was formed from Jasper. By 1860 he was in Bibb Co. and also on 1866 Alabama state Census. I can't remember when he died. I believe his tombstone was still in the cemetery back in the 1980's when I was there. R.J.

Liz, My source was "Grave Markers in Burke Co., Georgia" by Lillian Powell, Dorothy Odom and Albert Hillhouse. Published in 1974. This has been a very accurate and valuable source. The book is no longer in print. Hope this helps! Have a blessed day! Cheryl

You have a note on his memorial "extra info" giving a different year of death than what is listed on the memorial, are you saying the date on the stone is wrong?
Thank you very much

RE: Collye Wellman Alford
Liz, the Alford American Family Association definitely has Collye Wellman Alford's name listed incorrectly, as Caldwell Winchester "Collye" Alford, in our online genealogy, Known Descendants of Edwin Barksdale Alford []. We are currently having technical problems making changes to our posted PDF files, so we can't fix this right now.

Would you mind emailing me so I can share some more info on this family with you? I'd also like to ask a couple of questions.
