Bio and Links
Bio Photo I live in Marshall Co. AL, and have for some 59 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.

Thank you for the photo, I greatly appreciate it. As for the two Billy's I can't find who they belong to, but I will keep them in mind for when I do. Thanks again. all these Bryant's are my Aunt Gwen's family. She married my Mother's brother, Simon Williams. I grew up next door to them in Mountainboro, Alabama.
There is one I can't find, Steeple and Mattie Bryant's daughter. Bernice Bryant, Born 20 July 1935, Albertville, Marshall, Died: 6 Nov 2001, married an "Upton".
Maybe you and Johnny L. williams could get together and find where she is buried.
Thanks again.

RE: T H Lamunion

Thank you for making 7 corrections to this memorial for my ancestor. Yes, he was a Jr. I went ahead and sent another SAC for the name. I too love this site and appreciate all the hard work of all the volunteers which serves so many so well.

Warm Regards,
Kathie Wiegert

I hate to be a bother, but I'm not seeing your source note
on the memorial anywhere.

Under the photo you uploaded, I only see this caption:

this is an old cemetery record with her noted in this cemetery. Hope this helps.
Added by: Nancy Cornelius

I see where the memorial creator added flowers (in 2011 & 2012), but left no comments at all there and it hasn't been added to the memorial (unless you meant that you submitted that as an edit for the bio?).

Since you provided it in my FindAGrave message though, I can submit for the memorial creator to consider adding to the bio, but I thought you might could add as the caption of your photo.

Thanks again.

Hello Nancy.

No, I'm not related and don't need a transfer. I just try to research Gibson Bayou Cemetery and add as much information about the families buried here as I can find. This cemetery has been my personal project for the past 15 years.

Thanks for all your hard work.

RE: James Bentley
Thank you so much for taking the time to fulfill my photo request. You are a jewel. Ailene and Kenneth are my relatives. James was my father's brother. I used to spent summers with Grandma Bentley who lived on Bright Star Road. I would play with my Cousin Kenneth. He was two years younger than me. He had heart problems and I often wondered if he was still alive.
