Bio and Links
Bio Photo Find a Grave has been a great resource for freely sharing information among researchers. I am rather concerned that will figure out a way to screw it all up like they have with RootsWeb. I would like to think that they learned their lesson from all the negative publicity they received in that earlier takeover, but they are so focused on the Almighty Dollar that it's hard to predict -- sometimes their corporate greed overwhelms both their common sense and common decency. If they begin to charge or otherwise restrict access (mandatory registration or tracking cookies) in order to view the photos and data that have been freely donated by millions of volunteers, I know that I will immediately delete any of the items that I still have control over.

You may freely use any of the grave photos which I have taken for any legal purpose. The other items (personal photos, obits and other documents) may have copyright restrictions of which I am unaware, so use your own best judgement on those.

RE: William F. Byer grave photos
You're welcome. I just started doing this, now that I have a little more free time. It looks like you've been at it for a while, so glad to return the favor. Tim

RE: Josiah Chapman grave photo
You're welcome, I also just uploaded the photos of Mary and Sarah Chapman. The wives of Josiah.

If you look at the Josiah Chapman monument photo there is a tree to the left and at white marker at it's base. It says Wm. Chapman 88 years. That's it. Let me know if you want to make a memorial and I can upload the photo.

RE: Goldie McNeil
Goldie is about a 3rd cousin so not too close. However, I'll take over her memorial for you as I do have a lot of information about the family. Thanks.

Yup, you are right. I screwed up. I fixed it. Thanks for letting me know.

RE: Joe Williams, # 62963381

Maple Hill Cemetery has approx 39,826 Find A Grave listings. I would say that there are approx 1000 or more buried there and not accounted for as they would miss listing burials during epidemic times....and also during the Civil War.
At this time, I researching Civil War Regiments that were in Huntsville from 1862 - 1865 and finding Union Soldiers that died in Huntsville. There are only 38 known Union soldiers listed in Maple Hill with markers. So far I have found 98 soldiers that died in Huntsville between 1862 - 1865. The likelihood of the family retrieving the body was very slim. I am hopeful of finding 180 soldiers (reported in new paper in 1862) or more.....and so excited about it! They need to be accounted for and no longer be lost bodies of the Civil War.
Something that I didn't pass on to Doug, might want to see what was happening during the death year in Huntsville. Might be a large epidemic going on during that time period.
I wish you luck in your search.

Joe Williams, # 62963381

Oddly enough, I had receive a request for Joe Williams earlier this week.
I have bad news though - as Joe Williams burial location was not recorded when he was buried.
I wish that I could give you good news - there is just no way to find him.
I do wish you luck in your search.

RE: Lois Smith grave photos
Hi Bob
I just thought it interesting that the headstones of George and Marie Newton matched Lois. I was hoping you would notice, now you will have something to work on. 😊

RE: Ella Burkett grave photo
Hello Bob,

Thank you for calling my attention to this error. I really have no idea how I ended up with double photos except that you're correct -- must have been a glitche.

I've removed one of the photos from each of the Burkett memorials I posted it to.
