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.

Paul Edward Hulsey
Thanks for the birthday edit! After looking at the records again I think he may be the son of James Milton & Annie Hulsey. Do you know if he had brothers named James & Fred?

Paul Edward Hulsey
Hi Nancy,

Thank you for the kind words about Paul & his memorial. Since you personally knew him, maybe you can help me complete his memorial. I would love to find his birth date and link him to his family. I don't know anything about him and haven't been able to find him in any records including the Social Security Death Index.

In fact, I would also love to connect him to my very large Hulsey family tree. Hulsey is my maiden name & I was born in Cullman although I haven't lived there since I was 2. I do know that Paul wasn't in my direct tree for several generations back. I also know that he wasn't the son of Ira who is buried at the same cemetery. I've researched Ira's family and have connected them in my tree. We are very distant cousins. Ira had an older brother, John Milton, who lived in Birmingham who had a son named Paul but he would be about 4 years younger than Paul Edward.

If you have access to any information that would help me it would be most appreciated! My grandparents, etc, can be found in my virtual cemeteries on my bio page.

Best regards,

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.

RE: Thomas C Brumlow
Hi, this person is my 2X great grandfather's nephew. He is listed in the 1870 Census with his family, and not the 1880 Census. So he probably died in childhood. If you follow all the family links on his memorial, you can find out just about all I know of his father William F. Brumlow. I believe there is info where Wm. enlisted in Georgia during the civil war.

About chalking
I use a foil rub. Tape foil over writing, flat side out, take a soft toothbrush or other soft brush and gently go over marking. It can be helpful to glean some data.

I added the note you requested to James Richmond Dobbins memorial about his birth year. I am not kin to them, I just live in the area and do photos for Find a Grave. Patti

RE: Martha McClain
I do specifically remember Dr. McClain's stone, I went back to the cemetery specifically to look for it because I thought they were probably related. I know that sometimes people were buried separate from their spouses in a family plot but I had limited knowledge of this one.

RE: Leroy Porter
I am not familiar with any of the families in this cemetery. I have visited it several times and have noticed that some do have names on each side. I actually walked the cemetery and marked off names from a printout I had and photographed ones not listed trying to get a complete listing of the graves there. I had to visit it several times due to time constraints and picking up where I left off wasn't easy to do if a few weeks passed. I was hoping a fresh set of eyes might find the ones I could not. Thank you for your help!
