|Bio and Links|
I have always enjoyed History, and have been researching family genealogy for many years. I find old cemeteries with interesting old monuments especially compelling, as they often tell poignant stories. They make you reflect and remember those who came before.|
My primary family lines are HILL, GRAHAM, SLATON/SLAYTON, ROE/ROWE. Secondary lines are BOAZ/BOAZE, BINGHAM and BARKER. These are all Southern lines, most starting in the Carolinas, migrating to TN, GA, AL, LA and eventually TX.
I appreciate the work of so many here at Find-A-Grave, and hope to contribute as much as I can as time permits, including volunteer photos.
I am not a collector of graves. Just about all the sites I manage are family, most close, a few extended. I also take photos of graves I come across in very hard to find places, so I can later check to see if they are on F.A.G. If not, I add them before they are lost forever to the ravages of time. I recently added several for the old historic (and terribly overgrown and hidden) Seay Chapel Cemetery in Talladega Co., AL. There are many, many unidentifiable graves there on the ridge of Cemetery Mountain, and a few still barely legible ones. If you find what you believe to be an error, please send a polite query, and I will explain my information if it differs from yours, or correct something that is truly in error.
Nor am I a grave "Nazi". I do understand there must be rules, but I will never understand those few who would rather hold on to a complete stranger's grave, than allow a relative or close friend who actually knew that person, to manage it.

|Chet Walker||RE: grave photo for James Turner|
Thank you so much for your efforts. I am not sure who the James Turner you found is.
Any chance you found marker for James R Turner's (1807-)
spouse- Mary Ann Stevens Turner? (Not certain she is buried here but pretty sure she died in this county about 20 yrs after him.

Hi Jacqueline. Yes, you may use my headstone photo of Emma Barker Whittington's grave with the photo credit. Thank you for asking. If there are other headstone photos of mine that you would like to use you may do so with the photo credit. I appreciate you reaching out to me. Especially because it gives me a chance to expand my own genealogy information that I otherwise might not have come across.
Yes, I would love to have a copy of the Barker photo you mentioned. I'll send you my email address on a SAC to Alice Server. Thank you for telling me about it and offering to share.
Have a great day.
