Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been involved with the geneology of my family since 1995. And it is thru the research of my families that i learned that my mom and my wife are 4th cousins! So if you do the math you will know the added relationships i have with my children!!!! Geneology is a challenge, it is a passion to some more than others to know who has come before us. Where they lived, where they walked and worked, went to church, were married and the list goes on and on. In my tree i know the names of all my great great grandparents and from there it gets lean on a few branches of the tree. On the branches i have my forefathers back ten generations and some more, which to me is exciting! Along with Geneology i have another passion for photography, so when i had the opportunity to photograph grave sites in my community for others, i take it as a challenge to seek them out and photograph them to share with others in search of them. I look forward to the day when the names of those buried in cemeteries across the country will be catloged and photographed for all of us to share!

My family names consist of: Truitt, Strong, Granger, Lawler, Collier, Hall, Morgan, Cooper, Godwin, Sims, Posey, Farley, Davis, Frost, Gurganus, Earnest, McLaughlin, Dickey, Hawkins, Kilgore, Smallwood, Coupland, Foote, Bishop, Rakestraw and Buckelew.

My online family tree can be viewed on by searching Purnell Truitt Family JWT.

Re: Henry Wall
Hi Wes,

I just seen your message below from last year. You will need to contact Find A Grave thru the discussion forums in the cemetery corrections section. They're the only ones who can correct this.

"This may not be the proper place to report this problem, but this cemetery is showing to be at my house. there is no doubt i was the one that caused this problem as i have recently visited this cemetery in its proper location in Clay county, al. i must have accidently touched the update gps tab while viewing the cemetery at my house on my cel phone and it relocated it there. can you get this changed or is it something i will need to do elsewhere?thanks wes"

Thank you so very much for the great photo you took and posted on Find A Grave. I have waited a long time for these and so appreciate your fulfilling my request. You are a blessing in helping researchers to find more about their ancestors.

John Strong & Mary Strong
Sorry, Wes I meant to leave my previous message for Reba Chunn. Seems like there are several duplicate memorials for Browns and Strongs in two cemeteries, both named New Hope Cemetery.

John Strong & Mary Strong
John and Mary Strong are actually interred in the other New Hope Cemetery which is NW of New Site and just west of Goldville in Tallapoosa County, AL on Valley Grove Rd. It is sometime referred to as New Hope Brown-Strong Cemetery.

The only headstones next to John were three small plaque type stones. James Willcutt 1829-1896, Jane E Willcutt no dates, Virgia - Little Sister - Wilcutt 1915-1916, Jim - Little Jimmy- Willcutt 1909-1910.

RE: Gerry and JJ Davis
I would like to see edits for Gerry's maiden name (and first marriage?) and links to other relatives. I tried to research Gerry and Johnnie myself, but I had a difficult time finding documentation that I could be sure was for the right people. The marriage record had her name as Geraldine, which would be logical. As a relative, can you help (or submit edits yourself)?

RE: Harlin Nelson jr
Hi Wes, I am trying to add the birth date you sent me but someone named T. Painter has me blocked out until around the 22nd of August. I guess he got tired of waiting on me and I apologize but my husband and I have been having health issues and I haven't spent much time on Find A Grave. Wanted to let you know I'm not ignoring you. thanks for your patience. Rose
