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.

Hi Nancy, sorry but with out the 1890 census, I don't have a clue who John's father was. I am transferring his memorial to you as I am not related. Good luck with the family tree and thanks for all you are doing on Find a Grave.

Nancy, I think I saw you at the cemetery when I drove by yesterday. You are doing great work with those stones. Maybe I'll have time to stop when I see you next time. It is exciting that you found Wilson Creed Sims original headstone. There are so many underground that need to be resurfaced.

There are a couple of flowers noted on one of his memorials. I'll remove my photo since it has a dark exposure and we'll use your pictures. Then see about deleting the other.

Hello Nancy,

Thank you for the photo of PFC Glen Martin's grave marker. I feel that all military stones should be shown if they have one, and his was one that wasn't. I very much appreciate you taking the time to do this.

RE: John WB and Elizabeth Hughes
Thanks. I have the VA headstone for JWB Hughes and plan on having a memorial for him Spring 2015.

Wow -- my censuses for the two Concord cemeteries were quite obviously merged or something. Thanks for all the edits!!
