Bio Photo I enjoy looking up old relatives, tracing the path that led to me.

Maybe my kids, or relatives, a long time from now will access the memorials we leave behind to get a feel for how things were 'back in the day.'

I am interested in the Conner Family of Elba, Alabama. Do you have any information on them? Please contact me.

Richard Earl James, Jr.
Hello, John

IF, by chance, you have information on Richard's sister, Virginia James Cain, would you reply back to me? She & my Mother were neighbors, went to school together, & would like to call her.

Thank you so much,

Linda Cleere O'Chery

permission to use photos
Hi John,
EA would have been my Great Great Uncle. My grandmother was a Swearingen. I wondered if I could copy your photos for my personal use?
Thank you!

RE: Denton Johnson
I think so, but don't remember what the edit was. We'll just call it solved.

Denton Johnson
John, did you send me an edit message on Denton Johnson and Lillie Beal? I accidentally deleted it I think.

RE: Luella Conner wife of Alpheus Baker Langley
I do not have confirmation of her burial location. I just know she died in May 1966 at the age of 88.

RE: Sanford Swearingen
Hello John,
I added a grave marker photo for Mr. Swearingen and I sent links to both memorials to They will merge the two memorials. Either way is fine with me. I am just glad he has a memorial.

Sanford Swearingen
Hello John,
The memorial number you sent is a burial unknown memorial . Yes, it was created before the one in Evergreen Cemetery. When a memorial is created we search the cemetery where we photograph the grave marker as is stated in the Find a Grave guidelines. I searched Evergreen Cemetery and there is not a memorial for Sanford Swearingen. The first memorial created in the actual burial location is the memorial that stays in most cases. A burial unknown is only suppose to remain unknown for 30 days. At that time the burial location should be added. Remember , this is called Find a Grave for a reason , we Find actual burial locations. The contributor has over 1200 burial unknown memorials. I have never worked from a list or obituaries only. I walk the entire cemetery and take photographs of the actual grave markers. I will add a memorial photo as soon as I have a little time.

Alonzo Paul Cain
Thank you for pointing out the glitch on the memorial for Alonzo Paul Cain. I do not know how one could make a link to the same person. Sure looks like a glitch to me. I know I did not link Mr. Cain to himself as a sibling. Hopefully, Find A Grave will get this remedied soon. Thank you for pointing this out to me. I had never seen anything like this before now.
