Bio and Links
Bio Photo I work full time as a visual resources curator and communications specialist. I also research my family history and the history of Alabama. I have found several faraway graves of ancestors via this website and am very grateful to everyone's efforts to help everyone else! I can take photo requests occasionally in the east Tuscaloosa area.

Please ask permission before using any photos of family members and ancestors I have contributed. (Feel free to use snapshots of gravestones.) As a courtesy and to help other researchers, any photos you use from any site should always be credited.

In family history research, it is so important to cite our sources for every bit of information we use to build our family tree. Here's a great resource:

Some of my family surnames are:
AL>Coffee/Dale: Snellgrove, Bryan/t, Trant;
AL>Russell/GA>Muscogee: Tucker, Boykin;

Kentuckiana (southern Indiana) and Southeast AR: Dobson, Shuck, Beard, Peacock, King.

Good Evening.
Hope you are staying warm and dry.
I sent him over to your care as you are more active than I am. If you need or want any of the other memorials there to keep with him just let me know.
The "Very Best" to you and all yours, Bud.

Hi there.
I added the info you sent and more census info. His parents are not in that cemetery though. Looks like it is a different relative's family there. If he is family or friend and you would like to care for his memorial I will be happy to transfer him and the other family to you.
Happy Researching, Bud

Thomas Bush

I believe he was one of four children of William & Minerva's who died either as infant's, or quite young children. Yes, by all means create a memorial if you know what cemetery he was buried at. I could not tell by the article clip you sent. I do not believe any of the young children were buried at Hyram Cemetery, but probably at the Chadwick family cemetery, not far from Hyram. The reason I don't think they were buried at Hyram is that the 1899 burial of Levi ("Lee") Bush was said to have been the first after he & wife Nancy donated the land to the cemetery.

If you find he is definitely buried at Hyram, please let me know for my family history records.

Mrs J G Chadwick
She was one of John and Margaret's daughters, but I haven't a clue which one. What was the name of the Chadwick publishing the newspaper? I would bet that she was his wife.

John Williams
Thanks for the obituary. I've added the text to his memorial. Just out of curiosity, are you from the Jesse Bryan family in Coffee County?

Thanks for all the information. I deleted the data entered by Emogene, who originally created the memorial, and added your research and the obit. We are all grateful for your generosity.
