I'm interested in genealogy and history. |
I've spent a good bit of time in cemeteries of late taking photos. It seems a good idea to share those with others by posting them to Find A Grave.
Hopefully, others will appreciate the opportunity to find photos of family markers when it is not practical for them to actually visit the cemetery.
You're welcome to use the photo;credit would be appreciated.
If I can help with a photo of a tombstone in Western Jefferson County, I'll be glad to try.

Hi, I see I mistyped, I meant William M. Lewis. In either case he is not related. I arrived at poor young William by way of family married blank who married bland :) And thank you for the updates you just made for Raymond Walter Lewis. I did put in two photo requests for Lewis" in Bethlehem if you are ever down that way. Thanks and best regards, Jan

Thank you for making the updates to his memorial. Best regards, Jan
|Bethg68||RE: Old Hepzibah|
Thanks Bailey. It is a work in progress at Old Hepzibah. I uncovered a few more graves that weren't listed on findagrave. I have added them. There are so many that are marked with just a flat stone. I wish I had the original transcript to add everyone here. Thanks for your kind words. It is sad to see it in such shape. I don't have any family in the cemetery. I just adopted it because it needs it so bad.

|Ken Marks||Missouri Bailey's sister|
Sorry to bother you but I think that Missouri Bailey's sister is my Great Grandmother and I was wondering if you would have any information on her? She was born Mary Etta Foster and in the 1900 census she had a son named in the census as Chase McDaniel. I believe to be Charles McDaniel AKA "Charles McDaniel Marks" My Grandfather. If you can help me in any way it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks you for your time. Ken Marks House Springs Missouri
|Bailey Remley||Salter family|
Is this Salter family related to the Salter's who lived in the Burnt Corn area around Conecuh and Monroe County? The family names in the Burnt Corn area are Carlyle Salter and Otha Salter.
|Robin Knowles Miner||RE: Alice Mullens Sloman|
Thanks so much...I usually don't change my listing until the person I wrote to changes theirs out of courtesy. Because of your kindness, I have changed mine. Isn't it nice to be able to link all these families?
I am looking for information on the Samuel Parsons who is buried at Prudes Creek Cemetery in Tuscaloosa County, Alabama (Memorial # 51966536 created by you). Is he the husband of Una McCrow Parsons? Do you know who his father is?
|James Hale||Reuben Y. Robertson's gravestone|
I was looking at your photo and transcription of Reuben Y. Robertson's grave (43591014). I googled one of the phrases and came up with the song "Weep not for me." I've altered it a little to fit what's on the stone:
"Weep not for me."
Why should I lament the
Why should I indulge in such
tears or gloom?
[Calmly on the Lord relying,
He can greet the op'ning tomb.
What if death, with icy fingers,
All the fount of life congeals?
'Tis not there thy brother lingers,
'Tis not death his spirit feels.
Tho' for him thy soul is mourning,
Tho' with grief thy heart is riv'n;
While his flesh to dust is turning,
All his soul is fill'd with heav''n.
Scenes seraphic, high and glorious,
Now forbid his longer stay;
See him rise o'er death victorious,
Angels beckon him away.]
Hark! the golden harps are ringing,
Sounds celestial fill his ear;
Millions now in heaven singing,
Greet his joyful entrance there.
It's kind of beautiful I think. My father died recently - I found it comforting to come across this. Thank you.
And the last part - Rev. 14:13
Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord.
