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.

No worries Nancy! My coworker and I happened to be driving thru the cemetery today during lunch. I happened to open the FindAGrave app when we were there. Happy searching! :) Susan

RE: Henry, James and Jimmy
Hi Nancy,

You are more than welcome! You may notice that these three are in a different Section of Melwood than James Jr.'s parents, who are in Section 5 (stated on his Memorial). But they are not far apart.

Please let me know if I can be of any further assistance.

I found Macedonia Primitive Baptist Church Cemetery in Jackson County so I have changed the cemetery to that one. I will call them next week to find out if it's the correct cemetery. Thank you for bringing it to my attention.

RE: Michael Hutchins
Wow how smart are you? How do these people get all these graves wrong on this website? Thank you very much. I usually feel like I've failed when I can't find it. Do I still need to take a pic? My parents are buried at Memory Hill, I can go there easily.
Thank you for all your help!

RE: Davis family
I have accidently found tombstones in cemeteries before. From the looks of the tombstones I would venture to say they were originally buried where you found them. Unless, like you say, they were moved. Another project. Thanks for responding.
