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: Gorham family
Hi Nancy,

The Gorham family is a cousin line that I am researching. Like you have found, everything seems to go dead with Harry Marion Gorham Sr. I am working closely with my cousin Eddie Gorham. I believe that you may have already been in contact with him. We also believe that the two lines are related. Just can't seem to find the connecting dots. I am currently working on sorting Harbin/Harvin? Gorham. I keep thinking if I go lateral it may bring me back to where I really want to go.
I noticed that one of your research names is MARTIN. Martin is one of my main lines. I have been hitting a brick wall between Calhoun County Alabama and Franklin County Georgia for years. With all these brick walls, I could build a house:)
Thanks again for the edits.

Kindest Regards,
Alana Morgan

Thanks, I have 16 Apr 1892 from the descendant who told me how he died, did not get around to posting it, so thanks for the reminder.

RE: Geneva B Christian
does this Wille Joe Christian have a memorial? If he is buried far from her it is probably not her baby. If he is near Mahulda Golden Kirkland it might be Geneva's son.

RE: Geneva B Christian
She is buried where her grandmother, Mahulda Golden Kirkland is buried. Is this baby buried anywhere near her grave? Could be hers. Thank you so much. Just wish I could find a grave for her brother and daughter that are buried in Macedonia Baptist Church cemetery near Pell City or Pell Alabama. His name is Arthur Charles (Charley) Reeves, Sr. His daughter's name is Ruby Nell Reeves who died in Dec of 1929 at 6 months old.

RE: Sara Childress Carr

Yes, that would be great. I'll see if I can find her obit and link up some family. Thank you, Nancy.

And... I want to thank you for all the good work you do out there in the cemeteries for all of us! Bless your little feet, hips, ankles and knees!

*hugs* and be careful out there,

Nancy i have a request of you. This memorial is a duplicate of the original #15800072 in same cemetery Roden Chapel. Would you please delete your photos and post them the original? This is my Ancestor too and I have requested the duplicate be deleted. Thanks for all your hard work, I do the same.
