Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've been hit by the genealogy bug! I love to get information, photos, stories or etc. about my extended family. I started a family tree on Ancestry and have found out so much and have found relatives I would of otherwise never known. That is why I am a volunteer photographer, which is my trade and what I love to do. I know what others feel when they receive their information. It makes the work I do the most rewarding of all.

The Parents are not the the cemetery as per search
Hello Donna,
The Grave yard people say the John and Mary Beckham are not buried in the cemetery that Georgia Girl posted ... Georgia Girl can not be notified ... she flew the coop so to speak...
If I may make a suggestion.. remove them as the parents?
Thank you for reading this .. regardless of what you do on this matter.
I always seek the truth.
God Bless

Greetings from Find A Grave,

We are writing to let you know that a Find A Grave volunteer has reported a problem with your photo request for John Beckham.

The general problem they reported is:
Cemetery office has no record of this person

They also reported, specifically:
The Magnolia Cemetery Manager advised there is no record of John & Mary Beckham being buried at Magnolia. A search was also done by the Magnolia staff of the data-bank of Mobile death certificates they maintain with negative results for the Beckhams.

Due to this problem, we believe that this photo request can not be fulfilled. As a result, we are removing it. If you can fix the problems that were reported and believe a photo can be acquired, please feel free to make a new request.

I have been to this cemetery. I live in California so have depended on a Wiggins cousin for information. If these dates are incorrect would have a correction. One of the problems the the reuse of the same names over and over again. I'm sure you have found this out. I have 15 William Wiggins in my database. Are we cousins?

Mary Belle Franks #35552788
Mary Belle and her husband Jack S Franks #35552756 did not buried in Franks Cemetery where my dad and relatives buried. I went to Neill Cemetery and found their grave and they buried near to their children James Allen and Catherine Franks Cloyd's graves. I made picture of their gravesite. I created and post Mary Belle #154141701 and Jack S #154141720. If you want to keep their # grave memorial and let me know so I will delete mine. Thank You

I used five different family trees on to obtain the information I have recorded. If you have documentation which disproves the information I have listed, please let me know.

RE: Farris Family of Winston/Walker Co, AL
Good morning and thank you for your reply.
I don't think I was allowed to send a "friend request" to your FB page, but I was allowed to send a message that would be sent to your "Other" folder within FB. I'm not sure what that means exactly. Hopefully you will be able to allow me access to the Farris Family Group. My FB name is "Danette Griffin Turner". If my research is accurate, here is how I am connected to Willis Farris:

Willis Farris -3rd great grandfather
James Thomas Farris -2nd great grandfather
Roxanah Jane (Roxie) Farris - great grandmother
Rosa Bell (Henson) Wakefield - grandmother
Julia Faye (Wakefield) Griffin - my mother
Faye Danette (Griffin) Turner - ME

I would love to connect and discover more family. My direct email is

Thank you for your help. I sincerely appreciate it.

I saw a memorial photo of Lucious Dee Farris that you contributed. His brother, James Thomas Farris, was my 2xGreat Grandfather. I was wondering if you are relative and if so, if you had any photos of James Thomas Farris that you might share with me.
Thank you for all you've done on It is such valuable information and I appreciate it.
Thank you.
