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.

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.

Nancy, I am so sorry, but I have no further information on Tilda Burgess. I wish I could help you but my information was taken from an obituary.

Ralph & Lydia Fortenberry
Thanks for you significant efforts to identify and photograph the locations of Ralph and Lydia's burials. Thanks for adding the unmarked grave pictures and thanks for the wide-angle photo showing the headstones of the two boys and the space in between where Ralph and Lydia are probably buried. Lacking headstones, this is about all that can be done. I really appreciate the work you put into this. Hopefully, someday I can do the same for another Findagrave member.

Wm Brown correction
Thanks for date correction, I was probably using paper records, which are usually more accurate than the carved gravestone. I will change it only because it "looks" wrong. Mr Tidmore's memorial is an unnecessary duplicate, later than mine by three years.

Thanks Nancy, I did not know this was a duplicate. I deleted mine.

RE: Adelia Cornelius
My mistake Nancy. I meant to have clicked on Almedia. Isn't she buried at Pleasant Grove? Thanks for your help.

RE: Shadrack Wilbanks at Macedonia in Dekalb Co AL
Nancy -

First, thank you for connecting Shadrack to his father. I like for generations to be connected in case family members are looking for them.

This is not my direct line, so I do not know anything about them. When I read your email, I checked the DAR Genealogical Files. The DAR documents that James Wilbanks who married Elizabeth Martin was the son of Shadrack Wilbanks, thus grandson of William Wilbanks. James and Elizabeth are probably buried in this cemetery. They had a son, Thomas M. Wilbanks 1843-1865, so that may solve your mystery re TM Wilbamks.

There is no record in DAR Genealogical Files naming Shadrack's wife. On, people name his wife as Susannah Holcombe with her being the daughter of Hosea Holcombe: I do not know whether that is correct.

Do you have that Elizabeth Martin Wilbanks was a descendant of Charles Martin, DAR Ancestor Number A074494?

I hope this helps -

Thank you for the marker photo ... I have added it to the DD1330 Application for Gravemarker we previously posted to his Coffelt Database record. You can call up his record using the search page at - scroll down to the "Documents" section and click on the "GRVAPP from GA Box 196" link.
