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 truly understand your confusion with no headstone, it's sad & those funeral home markers are short lived. I have uncles,cousins that don't have one either. It don't exactly speak too highly of their children.

RE: Thank you!
Hi Nancy! I am sorry for not responding sooner. I'd be happy to share details if you'd like to email me?
He was in Germany and the battle of the bulge.Did you see the photo of Arnold I posted on his memorial?

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.

Arnold R Cornelius
Thank you, Nancy, for your prompt reply. Rountree is my married name but, it's a small world and I do know there is family in the idea. I'll check it out on my Rountree Tree. I found Arnolds grave. Are you his daughter? Do you know of his military record? I just want to make sure he is the Arnold Rufus Cornelius my Dad remembers from The Bulge.
Thank you so much,
Mary Rountree.
PS Was Lenford Godwin in The Battle of the Bulge as well?

Arnold R Cornelius
Hello Nancy!
My name is Mary Rountree and I am looking for my Dad's old WWII they alive or passed. Arnold R (for Rufus?) Cornelius was one of the names he remembers. My Dad is John J Murphy. He is 95 so I am trying to work fast, here!
My Dad was at The Battle of the Bulge. Was Arnold?

I want to make sure I have the right guy before yacking too much!

I Look forward to hearing from you!

RE: Woodrow Wilson
Thank you for the help!

I'm from a Wilbanks line. She is not within my direct lineage so I am not too hung up on having her memorial. I have seen your memorials and I know that she is in good hands.

Thank you for all your hard work.

Woodrow Wilson

I took me a few hours but I think I found Wooodrow Wilson. I connected Woodrow with Geneva Wilbanks Wilson. Do you want me to transfer Woodrow into your care. I would like to just "manage" close family.

Thank you for help!

Henry D Slaten/Slaton
There is no answer to what is the proper spelling, after the CS Army clerks spelled it, any government headstones issued would reflect that spelling. Since he was CSA, this SLATON stone would have been issued at the time of his death by the US using the CS Army spelling.
There is no such thing as a "correct" spelling, these people are all my cousins, and whatever they decided to use when Social Security etc came into play, reflects what individual members chose. You will find both spellings in written records, where the termination "on" and "en" may appear in the same document. This is probably one of the reasons one of my ancestors used SLAYTON, to remove the ambiguity.
I have asked Johnny to remove his later memorial, but when people start putting "decorations" like flowers and flags, this usually does not happen.

RE: Clyde Brumbelow
I posted some photos to Clyde & Emmie's memorial pages. If you look at their memorial page and at the bottom of the cemetery sign photo click on the name Pat Millican, her profile page will open. Send her a Message and tell her what you are looking for. She is in charge of the special collections department at the Rome-Floyd Library.
