Bio and Links
Bio Photo I live in Marshall Co. AL, and have for some 59 years. Like most people on find a grave I love genealogy. I have been using this site for some time in finding my family. Someone asked me if I had ever thought about helping find a grave with taking pictures. I challenge you to join in this group of people. Find an old cemetery, and start taking pictures. These old stones are not going to hold up to nature.
My family list includes: Birdsong, Brumbeloe, Cobb, Cornelius, Culpepper, Davis, Dobbins, Edmonson, Garrett, Gilbreath, Gorham, Jordan, Larmore, Martin, Pruitt, Roden, and Sims.
You need to claim a photo request before you take a picture. This way no one else goes out of their way to take the picture and the photo request will be fulfilled. Please do not post a picture on a memorial that has been claimed by someone else. The photo request will not go away when you do this, and you do not get credit for the pictures.
I have chalked stones in the past, but due to rules brought to my attention I will not be able to chalk stones any more. Please see:

Fill free to send any edits you may need by using the edit button. I will be glad to transfer any memorial I have opened unless they are my family. Any picture I have taken you can copy, I just ask that you give find a grave the credit. This is a wonderful site for genealogy study.

RE: Robert Ramage
A huge thank you to you, Nancy! Thank you on following up on Mr. Ramage and finding where he ended up. And for the photos! I know my childhood friend will be especially excited to see photos of his grandfather (& namesake's) grave marker. You really went above and beyond on this one, and your info and photos will be appreciated for years to come.

RE: Robert Ramage
Thank you so much for your recent notes. It's very kind of you to follow up on this man's headstone. Generally, a single individual in a tree wouldn't make that much difference to me, but I have been working on making a family tree as a gift for the son of my father's best friend, who both spent every Sunday at my family's house growing up. Mr. Ramage was the third husband of that boy's mother and a loving stepfather to him. Please know I appreciate your help.

RE: Robert Ramage
Dear Nancy,

Thank you for your kind note and research on Mr Ramage. I honestly don't know why he is buried in Alabama either as he was born and lived elsewhere. His connection to the place is through his widow, who was a daughter of Creed M Kirkpatrick, and who grew up there. I suppose she plans on being buried there one day too, even though she has lived in Michigan for nearly sixty years. The good news is that she is still around and I can ask her about it, but I want to do it in person and it might be more than a month before I visit her. Please feel free to back burner this or even dismiss my request. I will find out the details at some point.

Again, please accept my gratitude for your efforts.

Hi Nancy,

Interesting that the death date is not on the marker of Tiajauna WILKES West yet after 6 mos since her death but the funeral marker will just have to do for proof. You have always been so kind to help so many people with all the photos you go and take plus do the requests. You really are amazing and am so appreciated by me. God Bless.

Take care,

RE: Shiloh Cemetery in Marshall Co AL
Yes, the cemetery was very badly overgrown. A friend helped me place three new stones. He has been back a few times since to help clean up the growth.

We added markers for (1) Julia Amanda Thrasher and (2) James Martin Thrasher and (3)Birttie Thrasher (Spelling in doubt)

RE: Julia and Lumpkin Brumbeloe
Yea I added the memorial for their son. I was linking him and noticed. I didn't know them but my first cousin Kenneth Liles married Dortha Mae George, the daughter of Leamon George and Lucy Dora Cornelius.
Also I heard you met my daughter Michelle, she graduated from nursing at Northeast today. Yea!
