|Please try to verify any information that you want me to add, as I am an absolute stickler for accuracy in my genealogy. I am not like the many people who add things to memorials and trees and do not even check to make sure that it's accurate. |
I will be happy to transfer any memorials provided that you can prove that you are directly descended from, or that you have a lot of information and photos to add.
PLEASE do not use chalk, shaving cream, bleach, or anything else to better read the tombstone. Even chalk has chemicals that ruin the delicate tombstones (especially the older ones).
Instead, please use the native soil in the cemetery. I can say from experience that this method produces fine results. This method was given to me by a professional.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions!

Thank you so very much for your photos in the McGee Cemetery in Barbour County, Alabama. Your time and efforts are very much appreciated!!! God Bless!!!
Our friend Jim (JEM #46846771) passed this past September and I am trying to inform those that left messages on his home page.
As soon as his family releases Jim's obituary records so that they can continue Jim's work they will inform you if they have the obituaries that you are looking for.

Hi Lindsey, I'm responding to your note regarding Barbara Barrickman.
I don't know anything about the maiden name of "Baccus" as it is not included on the records I established the memorial from. Possibly it was added through the "edit" button.
Since I know nothing about this person, if you feel the maiden name should be removed (along with the name regarding her parents) I will be glad to do that since I can't confirm it one way or another.

Thank you for your time in taking picture and your kindness
I am researching 2 different Ware families and may find at some point that they are interrelated.

Hi Lindsey! Thank you for responding.
I found a listing for Midway cemetery on the Alabama Cemetery Preservation Alliance (ACPA) website. From what I gather it's not the Midway Church Cemetery in Bullock County, but the one in Barbour. It's ACPA Cemetery ID No. 3-002409.
According to the ACPA website, it's located "off 431 North just before you get to Russell County line, on the left" and the nearest town is Eufaula/Howe. Driving directions are: "off Gammage Road about 1 mile back in the woods just before you cross into Russell County on the right side of the road. Another way is off Highway 431 North about 1 1/2 miles back into the woods before you cross into Russell County on the left side of 431 North." Apparently you can't drive up to the cemetery, you have to park and walk to it but it doesn't say how far. The description of the condition is that it has pine trees everywhere and grass is taking over, and there is an original wrought iron fence.
Apparently there are graves going back to 1871 (the oldest) to 1956 (possibly the newest.) Family names are: Weathers, Cronin/Cronnin, McLeroy, Boykin, and Hall, as well as a lot of unknowns, and supposedly there are slave and Native American graves "way back in the back."
I'm interested in the Cronin/Cronnin, McLeroy, and Boykin families as these are my ancestors. At least I hope they're the same folks as mine.

Thanks for the pic. and I am so glad for the info. you give on your bio about NOT applying chemicals to the headstones. My gggrandparents headstones look like someone applied something; they are all white looking, almost as if someone spray painted them. So sad. Trying to teach my children about all this. Thanks again.

|C.E. Schlienger||Where is Streater Cemetery|
I was wondering if you could tell me where Streater Cemetery is in Barbour County, Alabama, please? I'm looking for "Midway" cemetery off Gammage Road in or just outside of Eufaula. Not sure if this is the same or if you know of Midway. My understanding is it's back in the woods and pretty well abandoned. You have to park at the main road and walk back into the woods to it. Earliest grave was mid 1850's, most recent was around 1956. Familes are: Cronin/Cronnin, Weathers, McLeroy, Tew, and others, and are my ancestors. Trying to find this cemetery and get a listing and photos.
|Judy Garrett||RE: Fuqua|
I saw that too but on all the family trees they showed she died in the same year she was born. Is there anyway you can find the actual grave and see if there is a tombstone?
