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: http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?searchArg=chalk&page=listFaqs#96
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.
BRUMBALOW Hi. I saw your photo request for Henry Brumbalow in Mt Carmel in Norcross. (sorry for the spelling)...I am always in that area photographing the grave yard next to this one (only a few trees seperate the two) so next time I am over there, I'll walk through the cemetery and see if I can find his headstone.
I also wanted to tell you, there are several Brumbalow's (Brumbelow's) with both spellings in the cemetery beside next door called Peachtree Memorial (norcross), I am not sure if they are related to this Henry you're requesting a picture for, but just thought I would tell you, just in case.
Thank You Thank You so much for the picture of the grave for Odell Scott! It meant the world to my grandmother Evelyn who had 5 children with him, the oldest being my father. She lost contact with him and we have searched for years. I just wanted to say thank you so much for everything you do.
