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. A lot of what I've researched has been in the Marshall or surrounding counties.

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.

RE: Arnie Earl Michael at Pleasant Grove
I see what you are saying about he location being elsewhere there. Odd though. Should I remove my photos to avoid confusion? Just let me know what you think would be best, you know I don't mind doing whatever would be best. Lol Maria

RE: Eva Hammock Starr
took me a little longer to get out there than I had planned! lol Dowsing her plot the rod thingy did not move at all. But once they got close to his plot it started moving right away. That still freaks me out! LOL Maria

Thanks Nancy, I've deleted my photo to avoid duplication with Maria's. My wife is a Collins and not related to the Michaels. Thanks for the information. Rod Cauvel

RE: Eva Hammock @ Friendship
I'll try to check for obit too. If a death date is etched on the memory hill one, my bet is she is there. We'll get it figured out! Lol

Eva Hammock @ Friendship
She does share a marker with him but there is no death date etched into the stone. I have it in a background shot. I have to go that way later this week and I will get a close-up then. Hope this helps. Do you want someone to do the dowsing thing to see if the grave is empty? Maria

re Cornelius
Dear Mrs. cornelius the pictures you take the cemeteries are they of your family or of random people?
