Elmwood Cemetery
It has been abt 20 years since I was there , but the last couple of times I called to get plot numbers so that someone could find a photo was when a not so nice lady would not tell Me anything except that when I came to take photo, I could get the plot number and I believe She said that they charge after 2 graves , even if they are husband and wife and I believe it was a $ 20.00 charge after first 2. It is not just Elmwood though. I recently went to Crestwood in Gadsden and they have a limit also and also a fee. I asked for a plot number to a relative that I have not been to in 15 years and they told Me He was not there or his wife. I spent most of day prowling the cemetery and finally found the graves. I did get My photo,s. Also I added a memorial to Valley Hill Memorial which is a very small cemetery here and I got an email from a young lady wanting to know if I had any information on her.She was her birth Mother and She had gotten her birth certificate but now she finds She is dead. I went into the office and asked if She had the next of kin's name. I expected that She would say that She could not give Me info, but what she said was that The lady was not buried there. She even looked on Find A Grave and said she did not recognize the monument and that it was listed in wrong Cemetery. I went out to the graves and walked around until I did find the grave and added a new photo with an explanation about what was said to Me. I did look and find marriage and death certificate for My Aunt and will see if I have anything else that Jack gave Me on his parents , but He did give information on His siblings and He just gave Me Margaret , Mary Joe and Doris.

The information I have came from the children of Alexander Joseph and his 2nd wife , Mary Estelle Smith's children, Their Father was married to My Great Aunt before He married and had his family. Some years before My Mom died , we met several of the children for lunch. I do trust their info. Elmwood normally does not give correct information on the phone. They are rude and they want You to come there and pay them for each person You ask abt. I will not be moving them on any information that Elmwood gave You. Perhaps if You do not trust My information , You could go to the cemetery and pay them and they will give You plot number or maybe You can do an obituary search.

Phasing Out?
I have downsized from 76 cemeteries worked to just three- the Kennedy, Karnes City, and Runge cemeteries. My pet project is the Runge cemetery.
Not getting out of findagrave, just lessening the workload.

Thank you for the info on Thomas Green! I've added it to his memorial. I wont be able to make a trip up to Gilroy until December at least as I just started rehearsals for a show that will play through November. But I hope to get up there as soon as I can and hope that we can stop for lunch or coffee while I'm up.

Hi - Do you know whether her maiden name was Day?
It looks like she married a Davis, and then married James Wiley Day. If you have any information, I would appreciate it. Thanks, Lorraine

RE: Cornelius Ware
Thanks for the suggestions. I'll try those routes. I am sure that the Lewis you saw is the same as in my family.

Thank you for providing the information. I have made the suggested edits.

I'm hoping you can give me some suggestions about finding grave records in Alabama. I am looking for an ancestor by the name of William Hobbs. He died in Taledega Alabama in 1837.His son Lewis is my great-great grandfather. After William's death, most of the family moved to east Texas. I can't locate any records on him or his wife Polly who died in 1831 in Taledega. Any way that you can point me would be very helpful.
