Bio and Links
I am retired. I have been doing genealogical research on my family lines for about 20 years. For the past few years I've put my research on the "back burner" but now that I've retired, I'm back into it. I enjoy going through cemeteries and each headstone tells only a very short history of that person's life. I now get to do several of my favorite hobbies, all at the same time, history, genealogy research, photography, walking through cemeteries, and motorcycle riding.
Not all of the headstones I list are family lines. If you find a correction or have additional information, just let me know.
If you have any ATWELL'S and transfer them to me, I'll take good care of them, but I will not transfer any ATWELL'S.
In the future, please use the change buttons that FAG has provided. I do check these to see if they are correct, so if it seems to be in error, I will decline them.
I will not link unknown burials.
DUE TO NUMEROUS FALSE EDITS AND MAKING EDITS FOR A CONTRIBUTOR AND THEN ANOTHER CONTRIBUTOR SAYING THAT EDIT WAS INCORRECT, VERIFICATION OF EDITS WILL BE REQUIRED OR THAT EDIT REQUEST WILL BE DENIED. IF YOU WANT TO MAKE AN EDIT BE PREPARED TO PROVE IT.

I've started putting G.P.S. locations on some memorials. The accuracy is supposed to be within 16 feet, so this should put you in the close proximity of the memorial. Not too bad for satellites 12,600 miles in space.

Memorial Transfer Please
Mr. Atwell, you created a memorial page for my mother-in-law, Karen Ann Hightower Saliba. I've been trying for some time to have as many of our close family memorials transferred to me so that my husband and I might add pictures and other information and continue to maintain these family memorials and pass on to our children to maintain in the future. We live here in Dothan where her grave is located and visit regularly. We appreciate you creating the memorial and would love the opportunity to manage it. Please consider making this transfer. Thank you so very much!!!

Mr. Atwell,

You created and have maintained a memorial for my husband's Aunt Juanita McMullan... my mother-in-law's sister. With your permission, my husband and I would like to take over maintenance of that memorial.

Thank You so much for creating her memorial!

Looking for family information
My name is Kathy Denise Drye. I am the daughter of Alvin Lamar Atwell and Gloria Paulette Eddy. I'm looking for lineage linking my ancestors back to at least the Civil War and further if possible. My daughter is a senior this year and I would like to look into genealogical scholarships.

This is my mom's Ancestry account. I can be contacted at denisedrye@att.net

Thanks for any help,

Denise Drye

Benjamin Henry Stephens
Hi Don- Sorry to keep bugging you - I submitted an edit for Benjamin to add his nick name. You don't have to add it if you don't want to. I just thought it would add a little character to his memorial. He served in a Florida unit and I can submit this info if you wish to add it. But, if it's to much trouble, I won't bother you with it. I could ask for a transfer, but he must have a following and I'm not a collector of memorials. I think the person who did the work deserves the credit - that is you and Brian. And this memorial took a lot of work. You can email me at eastown@comcast.net if you wish, or message me via this link.

Thanks so much for the work you do and continue to do. I don't think the people who manage these memorials get nearly enough credit!

James R. Huffman/Sylvan Abbey
Hello. My husband and myself were at Sylvan Abbey the other day to do some photo requests. We found the one we were looking for - that being Martha Huffman (1933 - 2014.) We photographed her marker, which is in the Peacefield Mausoleum. (Her memorial # is 1380887758.) We also photographed her husband's marker - which is on the same marker as Martha's. His marker has the dates of 1928 - 2013....not the same James R. Huffman that is listed as her husband on her memorial page. (And the photo on his memorial page, that has her name listed as his spouse, isn't the correct James. Not sure how to handle this problem. I will post their photo on Martha's memorial page...and possibly but a separate memorial page up for Mr. Huffman?

Memorial 48500206 and 62606269
Hi Don, These memorials are duplicates. You posted both of them about 10 months apart. You might want to delete one of them.

Thanks for all the work you do. You have photographed a lot of my relatives and you will never know how much it means to me to see where they are buried through your camera.

Thanks again,
