IMPORTANT NOTICE: Over the years I have left hundreds of memorial notes on Confederate veteran's FindAGrave memorial pages, using a particular Confederate Flag as a symbol. Recently I discovered that flag had been replaced with flowers. If you see one of my memorial messages left on a memorial page with flowers instead of the flag, please notify me so that I can make the appropriate changes.

Please feel free to use/share photographs and other historical information I've posted to memorials.
The Chattahoochee Valley Historical Society has endorsed FindAGrave and as a member of that society I have visited many cemeteries and added graves/memorials on its behalf.
I manage several hundred memorials in Chambers County, AL that Hank Rogers transferred over to me before he became inactive with F.A.G.
Also, most of the very old newspaper items on my memorials are through the courtesy of F.A.G. Member #47182102 who has painstakingly transcribed volumes of "The LaFayette Sun", the official newspaper of Chambers County, Alabama.
Halsey Family Cemetery Thanks from the bottom of my heart for adding the family members interred in the Halsey Family cemetery located in Chambers Co., AL. Martha is the first Halsey ancestor of our family to locate in Alabama. She is a true pioneer woman, coming from North Carolina and on the way her husband, George died in Georgia; he had already purchased land in Pike Co., Georgia which Martha later sold to one of her sons. She and son, William moved onto the land in Chambers Co., and he married and then the family located in Roanoke, Randolph Co., AL. Now more of the family can know where their first ancestors to live in Alabama are buried. Don't know how you found the cemetery cause it is in a off the beaten path; I've been to it, my mother remembered going as a young girl to help clean it off and back in the 70's she, my brother and I took a trip to the cemetery. Again thanks so very much!!

RE: Eddie B. Slay - New Harmony Cemetery Thanks for confirming what I thought had happened. After I sent my note to you I saw notes on my files showing him buried in the other New Harmony Cemetery. I know you're really careful about duplications. Hopefully they will do the right thing and delete the memorial.
