Feel free to use any of my photos in any way that you wish, particularly the older ones. My sole purpose in posting them is to share them with those who want them and to preserve them for posterity, just as many of these once were gifts which others (long dead, for the most) generously shared with me. History is not for hoarding or profit but for passing on.

Ray, you probably are correct about these markers being cenotaphs but I haven't had a chance to investigate it. Last night I was looking through some un-posted marker photos for Magnolia Cemetery and saw some Blakes and Wiers. I will try my best to get them posted this weekend and I will let you know when it is done. I will transfer them to you for management. You are a trooper, Ray, and I have enjoyed our exchange of emails and data.

Good Hunting to You!

RE: Isbell graves
I'm just getting started on the Jackson cemetery and I hope I can find more requested photos. I almost sent the photo for Norma Isbell's tombstone to my step sister-in-law with the same name but wasn't sure she would think if was funny. Glad I could help.

RE: Evans question
Thanks for the response. I am just researching this branch of my tree and getting it straight in my head. Nice work you are doing.

RE: Henry at Oakhill
You're welcome;I had been working in the Rev. Stockdale family plot of Oak Hill Cemetery and while driving out the distinctive shape of an MTA (Mosaic Templars of America) headstone in an old section of the cemetery caught my eye. A little leg work confirmed it's origin, as well as the presence of a Spanish American War period 3rd Alabama VA stone and another of the vice president of an 1860's African American group.

Cornelia Evans Denison
She has a beautiful marker, although it is broken. I was told years ago that she (and others?) was buried in a small private cemetery, but was reinterred at First Street Cemetery a long time ago. I believe she was listed in its 1962 cemetery survey.
The woman who has her memorial basically doesn't respond to corrections, tho the automated SACs will happen after 30 days. Please let me know if you add anything about her.

RE: William Cornelius
I didn't realize when I posted it that someone else had taken a picture & posted it on 7/28/2012. Now there are two so feel free to remove mine since you already had one.

Jason and Broadus Cemetery Aka St.Mary's
I sent you the photo's. Also there isn't one made for John Wier. I was afraid to move the part of his headstone that was blocking his mane. It sits right before Henery Wier. As you get up the steps.
I am related to the Weirs in Henry IL. But there has to be a connection to the one's in Lacon.But I haven't made the connection yet.
Are you related to them. Also did you want to make the memorial for John Wier. or do you want me to.

Jordan and Mary Williams
I visited this cemetery and took the photos. I also added all of the interred from a historical record of the cemetery after visiting the Court House and the historical society. When I was there, the markers of my ancestors Jordan and Mary were there. Jim Williams, now deceased let a message in a zip lock bag tied to a marker which allowed me to gather more family history on the Williams and the Thompsons. The family that owns the property was very helpful in allowing me to make the visit. As I recall Jim told me someone had taken some of the markers and he located them and saw that they were returned to the cemetery. Jeri
