Bio and Links
Bio Photo As a genealogy researcher for more than thirty years my passion has taken me on quite a family history journey. The most distressing thing during this journey has been how many gravemarkers have been destroyed by time and the elements and by vandalism, but especially those graves that were never marked.

If I possessed all the money needed, I would see to it that each and every unmarked grave was given the rememberance that person deserves. So, I am happy to contribute to Find-A-Grave. I encourage others to do so as well.

My roots are in the Heart of Dixie. I have a keen interest in knowing about the soldiers of the 16th Regiment of Alabama Infantry, CSA, the 1st AL & TN Independent Vidette Cavalry, USA. I encourage anyone who has an ancestor in either of these regiments to please submit information about them to me for inclusion in my research.

Please use the EDIT feature to make corrections or additions to memorials...also please be kind enough to provide documentation for any additional info requested. Please do not ask for corrections or additions in the comment section - it is very time consuming and there is a possiblity of error. Thank you very kindly.

RE: Sam Barron
I am so sorry for your loss. I saw the obit in the paper and thought it must have been a misprint. Then I realized it was indeed correct. At this time, I do not know the cause of death for Sam Sr, but I will ask some of our high school friends that I am still in contact with. If I find out anything, I will be sure to let you know. My prayers are with you.

Your son
Carolyn, I'm so sorry to hear of your loss. I know this is a terrible time that you are going through, due to terrible circumstances. I don't expect to hear from you for a while, but know that you have my deepest condolences and I am thinking of you.

RE: 76250488
Which of the George Vandivers is your ancestor?
What part does not match your line? You realize you have two men listed under the same find a grave, which is easy since they had same name and similar dates but not entirly. Lawrence Co Ala George fought in the War of 1812, while SC George served in Revolution from Va, neither ever lived in the same area.
In my research I traced the family lines of both George and Hollingsworth Vandiver sons of George Vandiveer/Vandevour as his Will is listed 1759 Kent Co Del. With Hollingsworth Vandiver it was fairly easy to pick up his records with the unusal name, with the Georges it was a matter of sorting through them, I have in my data base close to 100, thankfullly they all did not live the same time in the same place. Let me know what part does not match your records and I try to help solve the question.

your request and memorial #94975543
Hi Carolyn. In reqards to your request, haven't received your email address and prefer to correspond privately via email. Also, on memorial #94975543, the obit you submitted was not published on November 1st, 1918 it was published on October 25th, 1918. I submitted a correct one but will delete it if you wish. Just let me know.

Hi Carolyn,

Would you mind sending me your email address? I have a somewhat lengthy reply to your message and could also send you copies of the Isbell info that I have.

Casey Cemetery
Hi Carolyn I'm not sure if I updated you or not on the Casey cemetery. I know that a group went out and had a clean up day there back in the winter. I have been out of town working for a long time so I have been out of touch and I wasn't able to attend. But once a cemetery is added to the list they rotate around the county working on the worst first and down to the better ones. So it will be in the rotation now and it is on record and no longer a lost cemetery. The committee also maps those graves during the cleanup. That information can be obtained by the Lauderdale County Library.
