Bio and Links
Bio Photo I live in Marshall Co. AL, and have for some 55 years. Like most people on find a grave I love genealogy. I have been using this site for some time in finding my family. Someone asked me if I had ever thought about helping find a grave with taking pictures. I challenge you to join in this group of people. Find an old cemetery, and start taking pictures. These old stones are not going to hold up to nature.
My family list includes: Birdsong, Brumbeloe, Cobb, Cornelius, Culpepper, Davis, Dobbins, Edmonson, Garrett, Gilbreath, Gorham, Jordan, Larmore, Martin, Pruitt, Roden, and Sims.
You need to claim a photo request before you take a picture. This way no one else goes out of their way to take the picture and the photo request will be fulfilled. Please do not post a picture on a memorial that has been claimed by someone else. The photo request will not go away when you do this, and you do not get credit for the pictures.

On some of the older stones I have taken chalk to highlight the names and dates, but I wash this off with water before leaving.

Fill free to send any edits you may need by using the edit button. I will be glad to transfer any memorial I have opened unless they are my family. Any picture I have taken you can copy, I just ask that you give find a grave the credit. This is a wonderful site for genealogy study.

picture request - Brumbelow
I saw your photo request for Solomon Brumbelow (memorial #113870266) who is buried in Hadder Cemetery in Winston County, Alabama. Do you have any idea who this Solomon Brumbelow is? My great-grandfather was Joseph Solomon Brumbelow (memorial #33744187, buried in Morgan County, Alabama. I am wondering if they are father and son. I have other information (that I won't go into now) that makes me think that they might be father and son.
Just wondering what you might know.
My personal email is if that would be easier.

Edward Luther Cornelius
Just noticed that Edward's death certificate indicates he was married. This would mean there was 2nd wife.

Edward Luther Cornelius

Four of Edward's children are buried in my hometown of Zephyr, Texas -Emma. John Roe, Gideon, and Mary Jane Teague. Son Paul in Childress, Texas. Daughter Emma in Eastland, Texas.

Edward has remained an enigma to me - cannot find him 1910 (OK or AL). I had always assume Sarah E. was a 2nd wife, but have absolutely no proof of that.

I don't find a Sarah that would be his daughter.
Gideon, Paul, and Emma never married. Mary Jane married a Teague and no children named Sarah.
John Roe had no children named Sarah.

I tend to believe that the Sarah E. in the 1920 is a second wife.

Hi Nancy

Novie died 1955 in Albertville. I'm not sure she was married at time of her death or who she was married to.

I know she married John abt 1935 but have not found a marriage record for them.

I'm just guessing, but if she was not married she is buried where Hazel is; Here Mom & Dad are there.

Let me see if I can find obit will let you know.

RE: Stone family Oak Grove Methodist church in Marshall Co
No, I don't know them. Glad to hear your working on that cemetery. Thank you so much for the kind words. I also appreciate all that you are doing. It is very time consuming.
Thanks Cindy

Thank you for the offer. I wish I could have spent more time in Memory Hill. If I get back down there I will definitely let you know!

Ralph & Lydia Fortenberry
Thanks for you significant efforts to identify and photograph the locations of Ralph and Lydia's burials. Thanks for adding the unmarked grave pictures and thanks for the wide-angle photo showing the headstones of the two boys and the space in between where Ralph and Lydia are probably buried. Lacking headstones, this is about all that can be done. I really appreciate the work you put into this. Hopefully, someday I can do the same for another Findagrave member.
