You need to claim the 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 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. A lot of what I've researched has been in the Marshall or surrounding counties.

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.

Old Fairview Cemetery
Do you have any information on the death date of John Ralph Thrasher who has a memorial at the Old Fairview Cemetery? I entered him and his wife on Find A Grave some time ago and included a death date of 2006 but can't find the source of that information. I went to the cemetery this morning (It's just around the corner from me) and there is still no engraved death date on the memorial he shares with his wife. I am beginning to believe that my date is in error and that he might still be alive in which case I'll remove him from Find A Grave. His name and DOB would still show up on the photo on his wife Edna Marie Thrasher's memorial page.

RE: Cash family at Fairview in Dekalb Co. AL
Dear Mrs. Cornelius,
Please forgive me for not writing sooner about the information you have requested. Yes, that is Dortha Etta "Dora" White daughter of Daniel Burgess White and Martha Leona Trussell. Lester had died in 1940 in the Bryce Hospital in Tuscaloosa and "Dora" had remarried several times. I do not know all of her husbands and I only know of 3, Lester R Cash, her first husband and father of her children, George Bennett Gilmer and Mr. Hamblin only by last name. I am not sure but she could have been married a 4th time. Her and the children have been hard for me to find, cause the census cut off at 1940 and the family did not exactly keep up with Dora after Lester died. : ( I hope this little bit of information helps and thank you for listing Lester and Dora (White) Cash. Sincerely, Jennifer of Gadsden, AL
ps if more information is needed about Fairview let me know, I am willing to help. I almost got 50% of the people in Skirum United Methodist Cemetery connected and a lot of Fairview is starting to show in my family tree. Both cemeteries are much of the same families. JPS

Pannell Photos
Hello Nancy,

You were very kind and posted photos for my cousin and her husband about two years ago.

My cousin is Retha Pannell (# 53184670)
Her husband is Milford Pannell (# 53184692)

You have a photo posted on Milford's memorial that has the long base plus the marker in the photo. Good job being able to take that photo. If you still have that photo, would you please also post it on Retha's memorial.

Thanks for all you do for Find-a-Grave.

Have a great day!
