I became interested in genealogy and discovered Find A Grave while searching for information on my ancestors. I am researching my paternal family of WEBB, SNODGRASS, REDSHAW, KESSLER, CARPENTER, HILL, and maternal family of FLEET, ALSTON, JAMES, KARNEY, WOLFE, HARGROVE, SANDERS and CADENHEAD. It's been a long journey and I still have pieces of the puzzle to fit together. I would like to thank all the volunteers that have helped me complete my family memorials. I was so excited to receive a response from my first photo request that I wanted to do the same for others. As a result, my husband and I have become photo volunteers. As weather permits, we find ourselves going to local cemeteries, taking headstone photos, and then entering the information on Find A Grave. I guess you could say our hobby is "grave walking". It is a rewarding service to do. If anyone detects errors in my entries, please notify me and I will make corrections. Do not hesitate to ask for a transfer of a memorial that is your family. I will be glad to do so, UNLESS, it should be my immediate family,as it is always a work in progress. No need to ask permission to use my photos. I believe photos and information for genealogy purposes should be shared. I think when we share information about our family, it enables us to discover more about our long lost loved ones and make connections we might not have, otherwise, found.
Cannon Cemetery, Hardeman County, TN I saw your requests for photos from Cannon Cemetery, south of Bolivar, TN. I have requested some photos too, but I fear that the cemetery may have been moved. Do you know anything about the condition of this cemetery? We have some other family members or locations in common. Would you email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in pursuing our common families.
Snodgrass cousin I believe you and your late father are distant cousins of mine through our ancestor David Snodgrass of a Snodgrass line from Tennessee and Virginia. Many Snodgrass descendants migrated to or were born in Northern Arkansas. Please contact me at email@example.com if you'd like more info on your Snodgrass line and to get to know a new cousin.
RE: Anton Spitznagel There is a large stone that says SPITZNAGEL. His is a small stone in that plot. I think it says Father: Anton and the dates. He is also listed in the Cullman County Cemetery book Vol.I I am trying to find out who is buried in the Spitznagel cemetery. But Alabama didn't start keeping death certificates until the early 1900's. Might get lucky and find something in old newspapers or the Cullman courthouse.
Request for transfers I would like to have Ernest Franklin Steed(#49651537) and Lois Almedie Gaskin Steed (#49651557) transfered to me #47486524 .They were my mother and father-in-law . Thank You so much. Lela Steed
Archives I found this in another message to you: "Last week I located his original obituary in an 1889 newspaper that is in our archives in Guntersville, Marshall Co., Alabama." Can you access the archives by computer? My mother's family, Cornelius, is from Guntersville. Bill Hunt
