Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been involved with the geneology of my family since 1995. And it is thru the research of my families that i learned that my mom and my wife are 4th cousins! So if you do the math you will know the added relationships i have with my children!!!! Geneology is a challenge, it is a passion to some more than others to know who has come before us. Where they lived, where they walked and worked, went to church, were married and the list goes on and on. In my tree i know the names of all my great great grandparents and from there it gets lean on a few branches of the tree. On the branches i have my forefathers back ten generations and some more, which to me is exciting! Along with Geneology i have another passion for photography, so when i had the opportunity to photograph grave sites in my community for others, i take it as a challenge to seek them out and photograph them to share with others in search of them. I look forward to the day when the names of those buried in cemeteries across the country will be catloged and photographed for all of us to share!

My family names consist of: Truitt, Strong, Granger, Lawler, Collier, Hall, Morgan, Cooper, Godwin, Sims, Posey, Farley, Davis, Frost, Gurganus, Earnest, McLaughlin, Dickey, Hawkins, Kilgore, Smallwood, Coupland, Foote, Bishop, Rakestraw and Buckelew.

Thank you so much for going out and looking for her gravesite. It means a lot. Any photos you have are greatly appreciated. Also, thanks for offering to go back and clean up the marker you think might be hers. Thanks, again.

Hi, Wes, you added a photo to Walls Family Cemetery (the memorial is I suspect the system added your house GPS to the cemetery, which appears not to be in Clay Co. Can you help fix the map? Thanks!

RE: Jacob Bankston
You have a good eye, Wes. The original marker is correct, 1881. The newer marker has the incorrect year. I updated Jacob's profile to reflect this. Thanks!

RE: CL Brown
The photograph was made in good light and is clear, I wondered if you have any addition information on this memorial. The monument is a bit odd. and appears to be a concrete section post. Thanks bren

Re: Henry Wall
Hi Wes,

I just seen your message below from last year. You will need to contact Find A Grave thru the discussion forums in the cemetery corrections section. They're the only ones who can correct this.

"This may not be the proper place to report this problem, but this cemetery is showing to be at my house. there is no doubt i was the one that caused this problem as i have recently visited this cemetery in its proper location in Clay county, al. i must have accidently touched the update gps tab while viewing the cemetery at my house on my cel phone and it relocated it there. can you get this changed or is it something i will need to do elsewhere?thanks wes"

Thank you so very much for the great photo you took and posted on Find A Grave. I have waited a long time for these and so appreciate your fulfilling my request. You are a blessing in helping researchers to find more about their ancestors.
