You need to claim the 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 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.

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.

I just looked up another name that is suppose to be Maple Grove Cemetery but they have him in Maple Grove Cemetery Anniston because of Anniston Memorial Funeral Home. Sorry for any confusion. Venegoni

I take that back, it is not a small cemetery. I just saw it on Satellite in Google Maps.

In checking the Anniston Memorial Funeral Home website, I find the address is Highway 431 and Cane Creek Farm Road Alexandria, AL. Unless all of the interments are in another cemetery name, looks like this cemetery has not been processed. Google Maps is showing this to be a small cemetery. I have made the cemetery site on Find A Grave showing Alexandria, AL. If you go, would you lease let me know if I am wrong about this cemetery.

Hi, Nancy,

Hope you are well!

I have submitted links thru the "Find-a-Grave" system for adding my aunt Annette Sheppard Clemons' parents to her memorial; they are buried in the Union Grove Cemetery (Allen Augusta Sheppard and Elsie Louise Drennan Sheppard).

I also have added her middle name, Louise, which I just found out.

If there a way that I can remove the picture of her father-in-law (my grandfather, John Coleman Clemons)from her memorial; or does the person who added it need to remove it? (I am going to be adding a picture of my aunt Annette herself in the next few days.)

Thanks for all your help!

Hi Nancy,
Thanks so much for taking all the great marker
photos. I transcribed many of the memorials.
I will go back and make sure the marker information matches with marker photo.
Thanks for all the work you do on Findagrave.

Thanks again for the cemetery marker photo. I found the newspaper article from December 1970 of the car and tractor trailer truck wreck in which Ada Bertha Headrick Newman & husband Audy Newman lost their lives. I posted the article on Ada Bertha Headrick Newman's memorial.
