Bio Photo THE TWO TAPHOPHILIACS
This photo was taken on Bama Day in 1961. Roll Tide!

Hi, My name is Nannette WORRELL SERRA. I have been doing WORRELL and related Perry County Alabama family histories for about 10 years now. When I realized that someone's child had never viewed her father's grave at Jefferson Barracks Memorial Cemetery in St. Louis I volunteered to do cemetery look-ups there. It is also my way to return to others all the wonderful things they have done in helping me with my hobby.

My husband Julio eventually caught my addiction and we started his SERRA (Cuba) and JONES (Indiana) genealogies.

I got tired of lugging around cameras so now I run out with my cell phone to record as many tombstones as I can and he does more artistic photos with cameras and lenses. We've really enjoyed our hobby.

Worrell ancestors
Firstly, thank you & so many others like you for your selfless contribution.
I have Worrell ancestors & would LOVE to find where my great-great-grandmother is buried. She is Susan Worrell-Smith, married to Turner Thomas Smith, daughter of Elisha Worrell & Lincie Ann Coats. They were from Barbour County, AL.
Thank you,
Kaye

Marker for Barbara Jenkins Seiffert
Hello again. I talked with Mark at the Bayview Office and he checked the Seiffert records. He saw where Barbara had ordered a marker for Bill, but there was no indication of any marker eve being ordered for Barbara. He did indicate if you or other family members wanted to call him about ordering one, that it was just under $500 and could be arranged entirely over the phone. You can call the Bayview Office at (850) 432-7805. If you let me know if you do order one, I will check for it being installed for you and get a photo for her memorial.
Regards,
Bruce

Barbara Jenkins Seiffert
The office staff at Bayview confirmed for me today that "Barbara T. Seiffert" is interred in section 7 in plot 270 (the Seiffert plot) in position 5. I took photos of the overall plot and of the four individual markers present, but there still was no marker for Barbara. I was not able to go back to the office to ask them to check the records to see if there had ever been an indication of a marker having been ordered for her grave because I had to get to my volunteer job on Tuesday AMs at the West FL Genealogical Library. Do you know if Nannette's sister had a marker ordered for her grave? If so, I can follow up further on it for you.

RE: Uncle Ellis Holifield
Did you create the other memorials or did someone else? If someone else created the children's memorials or the link, that person will have to edit the memorial and information. You can click the Edit tab on each child's memorial and ask the creator of the memorial to help you correct the problem/s. This also applies to any memorial created by anyone else but yourself.

Sorry, I'm teaching. You probably know this. The only other solution is to ask Find a Grave Administration to help. You can get the email and instructions for this through the Find A Grave pages.

I plan to contact Administration and let them know that the cemetery named Statesville Cemetery does not exist. I don't know why it was allowed to be created. They usually "vet" the names, addresses, etc. Before I do this, however, I'll contact the other memorial creators on that cemetery and try to help. When checking with the Oakwood Cemetery administrator, I found that only 3 of the 8 are listed in Oakwood records.

Let me know if this helps at all.

Holifield/Hollifield
Yes, we still use the extra "l". Jesse D had 4 kids/ 2 sons. They all use the extra l. His youngest son , Will , was my great grandfather. My father played football in college at Marion and ran into quite a few of the Holifields. My husband actually did some work in Perry county last spring and I sent him on a mission to the cemeteries. O want to go this fall and make sure he has gotten photos of as many as we can find. I wish someone knew where Jesse and his wives were buried. Son Jesse is buried in Bibb county where he was killed in a mining accident. Like you said, it is good to connect with family and fill in some blanks.

I don't know why you were having trouble because I have not deleted the memorial. It appears that you did get them linked from looking at Jesse Thomas Holifield's memorial. My maiden name is Hollifield. My gg grandfather was Jesse D Hollifield, son of Jesse Holifield. He was the youngest child of Jesse Holifield, his mother the 3rd wife. He would have been the younger brother of Jesse Thomas Holifield's grandfather, Will. I am not sure as to why or when our branch added a second l to the name.
