|Bio and Links|
|I live in Marshall Co. AL, and have for some 50 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. Taking pictures for find a grave has helped me with understanding the past, and how people lived in the south. 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. Most of these families originally came from the Carolinas or Virginia .
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. 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.

|DWA||Cherokee County Genealogy|
I have not researched in Cherokee County but my daughter did several years back and was informed that a lot of older information from Cherokee County is forever lost due to a fire at the courthouse many years ago. None of the records were backed up or copied anywhere else. She was able to find some information at the library but it was through ancestry.com. I joined ancestry.com last fall and got a six month subscription because I wasn't sure if I would be able to find much information there. I have found tons of information on there. I love being able to sit home at 1:00 in the morning if I can't sleep and do research. They are constantly adding more information to help in the search effort as well. As a matter of fact, ancestry bought findagrave last summer. They say there will be no changes for now but I am afraid they will begin to charge for the service and if they do, lots of people will not search there. Since it is done by volunteers, I feel it should be free. I love findagrave. Thank you for the transfers. If I can help you in any way, please let me know. Donna Acker

|DWA||RE: Abernathys in Macedonia #2|
The Abernathys buried there are my husband's family. I will gladly take them if you want to transfer them to me. My member number is 47598545. I did not know until this week they were buried there. I found the newspaper article on their son who died of Leukemia and realized where they were. Mrs. Abernathy's family is from the area. Mr. & Mrs. Abernathy's sons and families still live in this area. Thank you for your work with Findagrave.

I'm sorry but I won't be able to help - I don't go out to many cemeteries any more due to health reasons, and Fentress is a long way from where I am. Your best bet might be to request a photo through the memorial.

I gave all my listings to another person who is able to keep up the listings and go to cemeteries. Try contacting the person who is the new owner of the listing.
Hope she can help you

Thank you SO much for adding the photos of my great aunt and uncle! Knowing that there are others out there who have the same passion for helping one another while also preserving and recognizing our ancestors truly warms my heart! Thanks again! Cody Blue
You are very welcome. There are several graves in the cemetary for both Brumbelow and Brumbalow (see complete list of graves in the Warsaw Cemetary).

Thank you for the photo and information. I appreciate your time!
|Joyce Worsham||RE: Margret Launa Monroe Bolton|
No relation so I will decline the transfer, thanks anyway. I know of descendants of Johnnie Barnwell Monroe, brother to Margret. Still researching the Monroe women, Jessie who married Smith, Doris who married W. C. Penland & Verma? married Leroy Caroll. Keep up the good work.
