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.

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.

Old Wax Rd not Old Flint Hill Rd. This road changes name at the Floyd-Polk county line to Flint Hill Rd.

Flint Hill Baptist Church (Est. 1953) in Floyd County is correct. It is the only cemetery in Floyd County that has the name Flint Hill.
In the past there was another cemetery named Flint Hill, but the modern name is Culver Chapel. This cemetery is located on the Old Flint Hill Road just past the Brumbelow Road on private property about 1/2 mile S.E. of Flint Hill Baptist Church. In old obits it is called Flint Hill Cemetery, Old Flint Hill Cemetery and Flint Hill Church Cemetery.
There is NO Flint Hill Cemetery in Polk County now or in the past. Find A Grave list a Flint Hill Cemetery on Flint Hill Road in Polk County. It is a duplicate of the Jones Cemetery,which is an African American Cemetery.
Most all of the Aragon Zip Code is in Floyd not Polk.
