I work full time as a visual resources curator and communications specialist. I also research my family history and the history of Alabama. I have found several faraway graves of ancestors via this website and am very grateful to everyone's efforts to help everyone else! I can take photo requests occasionally in the east Tuscaloosa area.
Please ask permission before using any photos of family members and ancestors I have contributed. (Feel free to use snapshots of gravestones.) As a courtesy and to help other researchers, any photos you use from any site should always be credited.
In family history research, it is so important to cite our sources for every bit of information we use to build our family tree. Here's a great resource: https://www.evidenceexplained.com/content/evidence-explained-citing-history-sources-artifacts-cyberspace
Some of my family surnames are: AL>Coffee/Dale: Snellgrove, Bryan/t, Trant; AL>Russell/GA>Muscogee: Tucker, Boykin;
Garnett D. Walton Good Evening. Hope you are staying warm and dry. I sent him over to your care as you are more active than I am. If you need or want any of the other memorials there to keep with him just let me know. The "Very Best" to you and all yours, Bud.
Garnett D. Walton Hi there. I added the info you sent and more census info. His parents are not in that cemetery though. Looks like it is a different relative's family there. If he is family or friend and you would like to care for his memorial I will be happy to transfer him and the other family to you. Happy Researching, Bud
I believe he was one of four children of William & Minerva's who died either as infant's, or quite young children. Yes, by all means create a memorial if you know what cemetery he was buried at. I could not tell by the article clip you sent. I do not believe any of the young children were buried at Hyram Cemetery, but probably at the Chadwick family cemetery, not far from Hyram. The reason I don't think they were buried at Hyram is that the 1899 burial of Levi ("Lee") Bush was said to have been the first after he & wife Nancy donated the land to the cemetery.
If you find he is definitely buried at Hyram, please let me know for my family history records.
Hunt and Greene Families Elizabeth Hunt, d/o Capt Judkins Hunt, Sr. (RWS) and Martha Batte, Greensville Co., VA and Hancock Co., GA. She was the 1st., wife of Rev. Myles Greene (m. 2nd., Nancy Bass and 3rds., Mrs. Mary (McGehee) Johns). She was the sister of my 3rd Gr Grandfather, Judkins Hunt, Jr. (m. Unity Hancock). Thanks for sending his the obit.!
James P. Kennedy Thanks for all the information. I deleted the data entered by Emogene, who originally created the memorial, and added your research and the obit. We are all grateful for your generosity.
