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.

I've just been informed that an earlier memorial was "moved in" from another cemetery--can you please move your picture to 65490264 and let me know so I can delete my duplicate? Thanks!

Thanks so much for the additions and edits. I must have added the spouse to both of them by accident because they are spouses twice. So I just sent another edit to remove spouse from Walter. Thanks for adding them and the photos.

You are more than welcome. Rootsweb has her date of death as June 17, 1935, Scottsboro, Jackson, Alabama.

I also came across a family plot in McDonald County, Missouri that was in very poor shape. How sad!

Thomas and Sally Collier
Hello Nancy. I hope everything is going well. I ran across this bit of information and wondered if you were familiar with it. Pasting it here as I found it: Source: "The Chinabeny Tree Colliers," by Dwight A. Collier. . Thomas and wife are buried in the Old Collier Cemetery near Abertsville, Alabama off of Highway 75 on Needmore Road in a wooded area near 599 Needmore Road. The property is owned by a Mr. Turner. The location is found in "The Cemetery Records ofMarshall County 1973 by Louise Mayben Jocob. There are twelve markers which could be headstones Only one stone is legible It has the name of J. F. Collier 1891 - 1892 and M.S. Collier 1853- 1892. The Cemetery was located on a part of the old Merrel Collier farm.

Thanks in advance and have a wonderful day.

Thank you!
Thank you, Nancy for the info you have on Arnold R Cornelius.I found docs on ancestry as well. I am going to assume he was the Arnold Cornelius my Dad knew in WWII. If you are in touch with Mr. Godwin, could you let him know my Dad was at the Bulge, 1st Infantry Division. You can keep in touch with me if you'd like at
Thanks again for all you do.
