I have been infatuated with cemeteries since I was a little girl, so it makes sense that I would be drawn to genealogy as an adult. I am very fortunate that my job takes me all over the place so that I can visit the final resting place of generations of my relatives. It also allows me to take photos or do transcriptions in various cemeteries throughout the country even if I do not personally have family members buried there.

Doing cemetery transcriptions is a labor of love. It requires a lot of hard work and sweat, and sometimes a lot of bug repellent, but I think it's one of the greatest hobbies around. I feel it is very important to document the final resting place of those gone before us so that others can know where their family members are buried. It is also important to preserve some of the older cemeteries before all is lost due to climate and/or lack of upkeep.

I am trying to obtain death certificates for those buried in the following Houston County, Alabama Cemeteries - Ramah, Cottonwood City, and Union Hill. I have hundreds of death certificates for those buried in these cemeteries as well as other cemeteries in Houston County (if I happen to stumble upon them as I am looking through the microfilm.) I am slowly getting them loaded onto their FindAGrave memorials. If I have a note on a memorial about a cause of death, that means I have the death certificate. Send me an "edit" and I will be happy to load the cert to the memorial right away so that you can have access to it.

Please use the Suggest a Correction link under the "Edit" tab to request corrections, updates, transfers, etc. I am always willing to transfer non-family members, but please use the Suggest a Correction link.

Grave Transfer
Hi Judi,

I don't remember whether I told you in my previous e-mail but I wanted thank you for the grave transfer of my Aunt Gloria Espinoza Marquez, as well. I just found her obituary on-line and once I receive a copy of it I plan on adding it to her memorial page. Once, again thank you for all of your help.

If you are not related to these two would you be so kind to transfer them to me? They are my Aunt and Uncle. If you are related to them I would like to make contact with you.
Thank you for all your hard work and dedication.

Thanks for making the burial location updates so quickly, Judi. I just did a photo request for Bettylou Clair Vallejos buried right next to them, surely she's related. Whoever made the request might be interested to see they are buried together. Thanks! Amy

RE: Thomas Hollis
Thomas Charles Jefferson Hollis (1862-1939) was the youngest child of William Alfred Hollis, Sr. (1826-1865?) and Emily Jones Hollis (1824-1914). They were married in 1850 in Early County, Georgia. Thomas' wife was Ora Anna ? (1868-1919), also called "Lizzie." William Alfred Hollis was my great, great grandfather. Emily and several children, including Thomas, are buried at Beulah (Grace Point) Cemetery, near family lands at Kinsey.
