Bio and Links
Bio Photo Born and raised in the (Rye Beat Area) Hamilton, Alabama, State Hwy.17-S, about 1 1/2 miles from these COOPER Cemeteries, located off of Marion County Hwy 22 near Cooper Free Will Baptist Church.
Cooper Cemetery
This Cooper Cemetery was originaly called "JOHNSON GRAVEYARD" in memory of the first burial: Jane Johnson who was buried ca. 1877, where she loved to play.
I am Sec/Tres for the Cooper Cemeteries Perpetual Care Fund. I have kept an updated burial list for these cemeteries now for 20 plus years. The list includes name, dates, parents and spouses if known.
The 3rd Sunday in May is the Memorial Day for these Cemeteries.
I have been researching Family Genealogy for the past 30 Years.

My Families: Rye, Bowling, Harris, Brown, Lockhart, Stacy, Dill, Liles, Jones, Brown, Earnest. Cook, Blount, Stell, Clifton, Sims, Vining, Sims, Ashcraft, Babb, Robertson, Waldrop, James.

My Husband's Families:
Kasberg, Ertel, Schmeddinghoff, Gutmann.
Pelton, Kinkead, Poovey, Newman, McDaniel, Sparks, Willeford, Abernathy.
Concering Links, Corrections and Transfer Request:
Please use the "EDIT" on each memorial that way I have the memorial number and the contributor number, it makes it much easier to update, make links or transfer. For a transfer please state your connection to the memorial.

Please DO NOT leave Family Names and Memorial Numbers with a flower or token, PLEASE edit the memorial and I will be more than glad to make the links, Thanks.
Thanks to those contributors who have left flowers or tokens on my memorials. I enjoy seeing and reading them.
Many "THANKS" to Charlotte Bradley Dupree and NativePride for now helping with Find A Grave Memorials.

RE: 2 Palmer graves
No, she has not responded to me. I asked her to transfer the memorials to me quite sometime ago, but as you said, no response. Of course, she isn't required to transfer them since they are not direct descendants.
I think I will take your suggestion and send FindAGrave an email about the situation since they are related to me. Let's see what they tell me.
Do you think she is still active? I have worked with her before.
Will let you know when I find out something.

Thank you for the information. I plan to get onto soon and start digging. I'll defiantly fill you in on any info I find. How are you related to Mary Ann?

I don't know your Browns )-:

Joyce, you listed that you were related to the Browns, so am I. Are you related to William Marion Brown the Union soldier who was killed in Marion County, here in AL? He was my g-g grandfather. I ordered him a military marker a few years ago. He is buried in Brown-Ballard Cemetery. Are you familiar with that cemetery? Your husband is related to the Sparks, Belmont, MS Sparks? They are my relatives.

RE: Palmer children
P.S. Will let you know as soon as I hear anything. She may decide to fix it herself.

RE: Palmer children
Yes I have asked for transfers, but of course she does not have to transfer them. She hasn't answered one way or the other. I will let you know because I was considering the same thing, putting them where they really are, and it is a neat "little cemetery." The lady who owns the property keeps them clean and decorated. They are my descendants. I think I told you that before. One of the markers are turned in one direction, the other in the other direction. They have a niece who lives near me. I asked her if it would be okay if I turned one of them, if I can. She said, sure.
