Bio and Links
Bio Photo As a genealogy researcher for more than thirty years my passion has taken me on quite a family history journey. The most distressing thing during this journey has been how many gravemarkers have been destroyed by time and the elements and by vandalism, but especially those graves that were never marked.

If I possessed all the money needed, I would see to it that each and every unmarked grave was given the rememberance that person deserves. So, I am happy to contribute to Find-A-Grave. I encourage others to do so as well.

My roots are in the Heart of Dixie. I have a keen interest in knowing about the soldiers of the 16th Regiment of Alabama Infantry, CSA, the 1st AL & TN Independent Vidette Cavalry, USA. I encourage anyone who has an ancestor in either of these regiments to please submit information about them to me for inclusion in my research.

Please use the EDIT feature to make corrections or additions to memorials...also please be kind enough to provide documentation for any additional info requested. Please do not ask for corrections or additions in the comment section - it is very time consuming and there is a possiblity of error. Thank you very kindly.

Stephen Springer
TVA Reservation
Hello, Carolyn. You listed a grave for Mat Sledge in the TVA Reservation (South Florence) Cemetery in Colbert County, AL. James Madison (Mat) Sledge was a brother to my great-grandmother, Lucretia Elizabeth (a/k/a Lou Creasy) Sledge Jones. They had a sister named Sally Sledge Rice Wilcoxson and a brother named Sterling Green Sledge, III. They were the children of Sterling Green Sledge, Jr. and Catherine Springer Sledge Chandler. Are you related to the Sledge family? If not, how did you discover the burial location of Mat Sledge? Is there a state death record or an obituary?
Thanks, Steve Springer

I took 2 different pictures but the second pic of the whole stone was accidently deleted. Sorry. This stone is a tall stone behind the church. The back of the stone is what you see from the back of the church.

RE: Ann Walker marker photo
I occasionally check the Ann Walker burial site in hope that a permanent marker will be in place but as of 2 weeks ago there was no marker and the Funeral Home temporary plaque is deteriorating rapidly.

William Lane Duncan
Hi Carolyn,

I'm researching William Duncan from Pontotoc County. I believe he is buried at Bailey Springs in Lauderdale County. I was just in Pontotoc County, MS and came across his Will and it says his name is "William M. Duncan". I have also read that "William Lane Duncan" is buried in the Henry Cemetery in Hardeman County, TN. So, here's my question. Do you have a photo of the tombstone that references his birth and death dates, that he lived in Pontotoc County and was born in NC? It is referenced on your Memorial.

I posted a picture on your memorial years ago and I think it is in error now that I know his middle initial is "M". I believe I got this picture from a cousin who had visited the cemetery.

Thanks for any hints you can give me. It seems there were three William Duncan's living in Pontotoc County around the same time. My ancestor William M. Duncan (1779-1850), William Lane Duncan (1800-1876) and another William Duncan who married Vicey Colbert, a Chickasaw Indian Princess. It's been difficult to sort them out.
