123164256 - I was walking the rows at Elmwood and photographed a grave marker for her. I noticed you had uploaded a photo of a bare patch of ground to this memorial. Since I found her marker, I think you might want to delete the photo you uploaded.

RE: Burgess Cemetery
You're welcome, after transferring some family memorials to another contributor I remembered this family plot and thought they belonged with an interested family member as well.

RE: R P Roberts
I'll email you the Burgess Cemetery listing from " Talladega County, Alabama Tombstone Inscriptions of All Known Cemeteries 1700's to 1987", Vol. I, c. 1989 by Joseph and Frances Upchurch. Copies of this are in the genealogy research rooms at the Talladega and Sylacauga public libraries, and are an invaluable reference. Cemeteries are listed in alphabetical order, with a glossary index of all interments in the county by surname if the cemetery is unknown. Although I didn't create the Burgess Cemetery, nor enter the GPS coordinates for it, the Upchurch directions to it match up with the map location-in the Talladega National Forest near Garing Creek off of Union T. Road.

Appreciate your volume of work, over 1,150 volunteer photos is outstanding selfless service in the ancestry quest !

Dave, I hope you don't mind but I copied your photo from Wesley E. Davis' memorial page to his wife's page.

Croft-Acton Cemetery
I have noticed this cemetery in passing and yesterday turned round and went and walked there. A woman was walking her dog and I wanted to inquire of it, but had another male friend with me and was afraid to approach her for fear of scaring her.
Do you know anything of the origins of this cemetery? Was there once a church there? I saw lots of Actons but no Crofts. Right off I saw
Skip Bundy's grave. He was a coach when I was at Shades Valley High School.

Thank You.

RE: Herbert and Hubert Shropshire
Thank you so much. It means the world to me. I hadn't even found Uncle Butch's record yet. Bless you.

RE: Herbert and Hubert Shropshire
As you also appear to have control of Irene McDonald Shropshire's memorial (#46571168), might I also request control of it? She was Herbert's wife and my grandmother.

Re: Herbert Shropshire
Thank you so much for transferring my grandfather's grave page to me. I deeply appreciate that you documented it to begin with.

Added by BRShropshire on Jan 18, 2016 2:56 PM

RE: Herbert and Hubert Shropshire
Ah hah. I did not know how to accomplish that, and I was hoping someone who already used this site would. They do have entries on this site, and I can go try to update it that way. Thank you!

Headstone photos
Could I please use your headstone photos on my ancestry public family tree?
Thank you,

Added by Nellie NY on Jul 31, 2015 10:13 AM

Misplaced photo
You were very kind to photograph a relative's headstone, but we , and I mean me, placed the photo on the incorrect memorial. So, would you transfer the photo on 7144960 to 149819446, and delete the one on 7144960? Thanks and I'm sorry for this mix up. Dick

Thanks for the photo. I took the liberty of enlarging the name/date. If you want to do that instead I'll delete mine.
