Scott, I wish I could help you with your request but I don't live anywhere close to Colbert or Franklin counties and I do not go to cemeteries in Ensley. I have my hards full with the 12 or so cemeteries closer to my home.

Annie Ladd
I looked to fill your photo request for Annie Ladd (Dothan City Cemetery) over the weekend and found the family plot you mentioned in your request. However, there is no marker for Annie within that plot. It is possible that she is burried elsewhere within the cemetery but I did not find her marker. I will leave the request open in the hopes that someone else has better luck. It is a big cemetery and there are many unmarked graves.

Good luck,

Spring Hill Cemetery
As you have probley noticed on this Cemeterys request thingy there is over 113 requests that have not as yet gotten fullfilled and they may not either if the requestors dont call the Spring Hill office for the locations .
So you may have to delete the original request and do over by calling the Cemetery office for location of interment.

Retelling about Spring Hill Cemetery reguests
I suggest you may have to call the Funeral Home Office and ask for the locations of any of your loved ones . And then put the location section in the request so the people who go to take pics wont have to go to the office to ask for the locations .

The last times I went to ask for locations , the people in the office there said, they would have to charge non family members 5 dollars to look up locations, because they were much too busy helping the family members of interments .
Good luck in your Ancestry searches

RE: Bradens Colbert Co, Alabama
Scott, Thank you for gathering all the info on Confederate Soldiers in Colbert Co. Al. You may already know this but Andrew Braden, father of John, A.J. (Andrew Jackson) and Barton Braden in a letter to his brother William stated that John, A.J. and Barton all died in the Civil War. I have no info on John or Barton. A.J. died in Camp Douglas in Chicago, IL and is buried there. It appears William is the only survior of his sons. If you find any info on John or and Barton let me know. If there is anything I can help with let me know.

A.J. Braden b. abt. 1844 d. 12 Mar 1862
John Braden b. abt. 1842 d. 16 Feb 1862 in Franklin Co. AL. (Not confirmed)

Barton Braden b. abt. 1846 d. Unknown

Due to privacy reasons there are reluctant to disclose this information to anyone other than a relative. Please email me back at with this information so I can locate the gravesite.

Thanking you in advance,

RE: James David Stringer
Thanks Scott,

Interestingly, there is information from another researcher that indicates that JD Stringer was actually conscripted by the Confederate army and was "busted out" of the stockade at Newburg, AL (just outside of Russellville). He then spent the remainder of the war hiding in Freedom Hills with one of his brothers-in-law. His father, David, was a Union sympathizer.

Thanks for the info! If you happen to find anything else, I would be grateful to hear about it.
