|Bio and Links|
I am a proud native son of the Big Cove Community in Madison County, Alabama. All branches of my family had settled there by the early 1900's – some much earlier than that. In fact, my great-great-great-great-great-grandfather, John Clan Grayson, was the original settler of Big Cove.|
I have researched and studied genealogy since I was about fifteen years old; and I have found it to be a very gratifying pastime. I have extensively researched the Bird, Hunter, Adams, Brumbalow, Stapler, Vann, Hinshaw, Jacks, McKenzie, Guffey, Morgan, Brown, Godwin, and Smith Families, as well as other allied surnames and families of friends within the Big Cove Community.
I have a very large collection of old family photos, which have made their way around the internet after having posted them on Ancestry.com. I have mixed feelings about this. I do not mind sharing these priceless photographs; but I do wish people would ask before claiming them for their own and reposting. But oh well – history is meant to be shared.
I am happy to help anyone researching families in the Big Cove Community or other families with which I have a connection.
Also note, several of my entries reference a few books that I have written. Copies of these books are in Huntsville, Scottsboro, and Grant public libraries.
Consider the tone of your bio. Why sound hateful and selfish? If a family member requests a memorial and you only maintain the grave as a number, why not just transfer so that the family member can make a nice memorial for their loved one. Please do not let your ego get in the way of what is important - perserving the memory of loved ones for future generations. Lets try to help each other do that.
That being said, THANK YOU so much to everyone who has been willing to complete a transfer for me! You are the best!

This is my daddy. How do I add my mother's (his widow"s) name to his memorial? Also my name?
|Rebecca Buskirk||Floyd Marshall Byrd|
Do you have any information to share about this gentleman? I am looking for a gentleman by the same name who is my great grandfather who had lived and had family in Marked Tree. His father was John Byrd. I am not sure if he was married to anyone else but at one time his wife was Mable Louise Christopher. I frankly don't have any other information.

I have a Sarah (Guthrie) McClain in my family tree. She fits your memorial almost perfect. Didn't know she was married a 2nd time. She was my great-grand aunt.
Here's her grave back in Alabama: # 67287494
Her first husband was Willis Morgan McClain: # 29848217
Her parents (my 2x's great-grandparents) were:
James W. Guthrie: # 103463723
Hannah (Stevenson) Guthrie: # 103464235
She what you think,
|Cardinals Fan||RE: Gutherie|
Wow! Great find. I am now searching to see how she may fit to my Guthrie and McLain family. I see their origins are around Marshall and Etowah counties of Alabama, which is where most of my Guthrie's were from. I'll see what I can come up with.
Thanks for pointing her grave out.

Hello Byrdman of Big Cove......
I just claimed a photo request of yours for the above.
If you will, note that Maple Hill Cemetery is the "private cemetery" located in the middle of the City owned Maple Hill Cemetery. It is confusing I know, but when I search the data base and a request is not there.....I can always count on the person being buried in the private section of Maple Hill.
Hope to have your request filled today.

You're welcome! Looking forward to researching my ancestors.

Here's a good article on the Ancestry purchase of FindAGrave;
If you look at the Ancestry list of genealogy sites they now control
you'll notice that they handle different sites differently. I suspect that FindAGrave will probably be kept free and separate although the look of it may be modified a bit; sure hope so, anyway.
You are very welcome.
