I started manually working on my genealogy around 1990 scraping together pieces of paper that my mother had written tidbits on, then talking to my great-aunt, aunts and uncles to get more info. Once I was able to electronically compile my genealogy it felt like starting over but my tree has branched enormously since then. I have walked a few cemeteries dragging my husband along who has graciously help hunt for tombstones. I have been interested in cemeteries since my youth. The age of modern technology has help tremendously in having instant photos. I am now retired and spend tons of time cleaning up my tree. I get a little obsessed wanting it to be as accurate as possible. We have 16 grandchildren and one great-grandchild...our house is full on special gatherings. I truly appreciate everyone who is involved in genealogy and thank you in advance for all that you have to offer.|

|Mrs. Bee||RE: Charlie James|
Ms. Dobbins, I'm sorry I didn't give it to you when I sent it in. I'm trying to get my family history updated on Ancestry and am including their burial places if I find them on findagrave.com. I have been bouncing from surname to surname, and now I can't even find Charlie James in my file. Let me apologize again, because I have caused you undue work.

|Madoc55||RE: High Shoals Baptist Church Cemetery|
You're quite welcome. Since High Shoals is on private property, I had to talk the owner into letting me come onto the property. My grandfather's brother, Rupert Hoyt, is buried there.
My great grandfather, Jesse Bealon Weathers, seems to have had some influence in High Shoals around the turn of the last century. I went to High Shoals in the middle 1950s, with my grandfather, Herschel H. Weathers. I don't remember seeing the cemetery then, but I did see the remains of the old house, owned by Jesse. The aforementioned men and their respective wives are buried in Greenwood Cemetery, Montgomery, AL.

|Colum O' Farrell||wrong grave|
I first of all shouldnt have used the word fraud, and am sorry for using that word.
When you recieve a photo of a grave with an american flag showing no headstone, you take it that what the person sent you is correct.I was very advanced in having a headstone erected only to find there was one there already.i was really upset having done so much with friends and family inc Banks to have it paid for.
Again I apologize for using that word
|Donna Martin Wilson||RE: Mount Olive Cemetery|
You are very welcome. It took several trips since I was looking for a Millie James tombstone. There is another Millie James buried on the other side of the cemetery. I just happened to walk by this one and noticed the dates. Hope you have a great week.

|Colum O' Farrell||Fraud|
Hi My name is colum I wish you to pass this message on to your admin. A guy calling himself Anonymous sent me details of a relatives grave and I was making arrangments to have a Headstone erected.A friend of mine was in Brooklyn where the grave is in, Holycross Brooklyn and took a photo and mailed it to me, there is a headstone there already with another familys name on it and my familys name at the bottom. Your mr Anonymous sent me details on your headed paper with a photo of a grave and an Americian flag he says he inserted to have the photo taken. I am so disappointed That this has happened. I know that findagrave are doing a good job but you do not need people like this working for your cause.
|David Franklin||RE: Myrtle Hill Cemetery|
You're very welcome. Glad to help.
|Mrs. Bee||Charlie James|
I am trying to get grave plot markings to take pictures of tombstones, but I need at least a general idea of a death date for him.
