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.
I have chalked stones in the past, but due to rules brought to my attention I will not be able to chalk stones any more. Please see:

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.

Thank you!
Thank you, Nancy for the info you have on Arnold R Cornelius.I found docs on ancestry as well. I am going to assume he was the Arnold Cornelius my Dad knew in WWII. If you are in touch with Mr. Godwin, could you let him know my Dad was at the Bulge, 1st Infantry Division. You can keep in touch with me if you'd like at
Thanks again for all you do.

Katie Lou Owens Bobo # 8858828
You sent me a msg asking about this name Katie Lou Owens Bobo ... I am sorry but I would be of no help in locating her grave. This Bobo lineage was family of the former creator Reba Parks. Reba links to some of my family names thus why I maintain her pgs. She did however have MANY errors in her early work. I cannot vouch for whether or not this name is even in this location.

Arnold R Cornelius
Thank you, Nancy, for your prompt reply. Rountree is my married name but, it's a small world and I do know there is family in the idea. I'll check it out on my Rountree Tree. I found Arnolds grave. Are you his daughter? Do you know of his military record? I just want to make sure he is the Arnold Rufus Cornelius my Dad remembers from The Bulge.
Thank you so much,
Mary Rountree.
PS Was Lenford Godwin in The Battle of the Bulge as well?

Arnold R Cornelius
Hello Nancy!
My name is Mary Rountree and I am looking for my Dad's old WWII they alive or passed. Arnold R (for Rufus?) Cornelius was one of the names he remembers. My Dad is John J Murphy. He is 95 so I am trying to work fast, here!
My Dad was at The Battle of the Bulge. Was Arnold?

I want to make sure I have the right guy before yacking too much!

I Look forward to hearing from you!

RE: Woodrow Wilson
Thank you for the help!

I'm from a Wilbanks line. She is not within my direct lineage so I am not too hung up on having her memorial. I have seen your memorials and I know that she is in good hands.

Thank you for all your hard work.

Woodrow Wilson

I took me a few hours but I think I found Wooodrow Wilson. I connected Woodrow with Geneva Wilbanks Wilson. Do you want me to transfer Woodrow into your care. I would like to just "manage" close family.

Thank you for help!

RE: Auston
Please do send me that photo. My grandmother had some miscarriages early in her marriage and there are some stones that my sister made and put where those babies are buried. Was never aware of any children of my grandmothers being 3 years old at their death. This child could be related to Robert Austins immediate family. Send me the photo and I will ask my sister about it.

RE: Auston/Austin
Maudie was the wife of Claude Auston. They were our neighbors a long time ago. My grandparents (and other relatives) were the Austins spelled with the "i". I was always told the Austons with the "o" was a whole other set in which we were not related to. The headstone laying on the ground broke at the base years ago. Maudie and Claudes only son Clayton, is buried in Texas. Maudies granddaughter (Claytons daughter) is the one who had the newer stones made. She just left the older stone laying where it fell.
