RE: Alfie McGee headstone

I went back and read the headstone for Alfie. You were correct; I had read it wrong. In my defense, it's very faint and hard to see, but I should have looked more closely. It says

"Sacred to the memory of Alfie P. beloved wife of J.H. McGee. Born Oct. 6 1864 Died July 7 1890 Aged 25 years 9 mos and 1 day Requiesce in pace." There are carved ferns and cattails all around the 4 sides of the headstone; it's very pretty.

RE: Alfie McGee headstone
It says "beloved son of JH McGee" not wife. I've already deleted the pictures so I don't remember the rest. However, I will be going by that cemetery in the next couple days; I'll stop in and get the full inscription. It's some sort of expression like "gone but not forgotten" but I don't remember which one it is.

RE: Alfie McGee headstone
You're very welcome. I have to apologize for the pictures. On my computer, they are vertical, but when I downloaded them to Find a Grave, they were turned horizontally! I tried 3 different times to download but had the same problem, obviously. Sorry!!

Edmond Harris Sanders
Hi, Janet,
I researched the Smyrna Church minutes and found that E. H. Sanders and his wife Nancy joined the church on May 20, 1876 rather than 1873. Could you make this date change in his bio? Thanks. Here's the link:

Janet, thank you for the edit information for A. F. Kirbie, #65061021. I am not related to this family but was recently checking burials in the section where he is. I have updated his page with the location of Block 9, North half of Lot 2. Ruby Sitzer or Setzer is also buried in the North half of Lot 2, Block 9. She was age 19 and born in Texas. She does not have a grave marker. Do you know if Ruby is connected to the Kirbie family?

RE: William Carroll Hughes
You are very welcome. I wasn't sure at first if it was the right one. The middle name is different and the dates are different but the wife was the same. If you find it is incorrect please let me know and I'll delete the photo. Thanks.

It was good to hear from you. I think we exchanged messages or emails a few years ago. Elizabeth Dobbs is listed in the 1866 Alabama State Census in Calhoun County, as well as, W. M. Dobbs.

I can add the birth year to the memorial for Martin Dobbs, but I can't delete the link to his son. You will need to do that as you are the manager for William. The only changes I can make are for spouses and parents. I am glad to hear that this was a different Martin Dobbs. Do you have any death information on Martin, the father of Thomas and William?
