Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born in Pine Grove Community of Mobile County, Alabama. I am a Registered Nurse (BSNRN) by profession. I also retired from the United States Coast Guard Reserve after 32 years as a Chief Warrant Officer 4 Finance & Supply. I now work in the family business Metro Bonding Company Mobile, Alabama.

Some of my family surnames are McNeil, Kennedy, Sasser, Sauls, Chavers, Adams, Melton, Jones, Poates,Griffith, and Ellis.

I started doing my own family research and walking cemeteries about 8 years ago. I also started recording and photographing cemeteries. Recently I have been adding to Find A Grave.

If anyone finds an error in my work or wants to add to their families bio's please contact me for updates and corrections.
I will be glad to transfer memorials to family members.

RE: Relatives
Hi William! Yes, that's exactly where I went and was able to weave them all together...well, my grandma's side anyway. I got them figured out all the way back to my great, great, great, great grandma...which was Elizabeth Chavers Kennedy(b.1803 - unknown). Your grandma, Hulda Katherine Kennedy McNeil's sister, Nannie Kennedy Chavers, was my great grandma. Pretty cool huh? Oh, I did find the pics and saved them, thank you for posting them! I also sent this site, with our dad's page, Gladden William Graves, to my brother, Bill Graves, in April so he can visit Dad too and noticed that he left you a very nice message. Our dad's death has been very hard for both of us and we've never gotten over it. Both of us living so far away now, it's good to be able to visit Dad here. Anyways, I emailed him and told him you are like our 3rd or 4th cousin...something like that...and that you have been working on our family tree. You can use any of my info for their walls if you want, that would be neat. I emailed myself a better copy with all the names, dates and relationships, just email or message me if you want to record it. Thanks for writing back too, take care! :)

RE: Relatives
Hi William, do you go by William or a short version? Anyways, it's me...your long lost cousin, Candie. I spoke to you awhile back about our relatives and trying to figure out who was who and what relation they are to me. Looks like you've been busy in the tree, that's awesome! I was checking it out and finally figured out that Will & Nannie Chavers are my great grandparents. They are my grandma Hazel's parents. I went to Ancestry.com and searched my grandma and it took me to a 1920 census and there's where it gave me all the info. I don't know why I didn't of that before! Guess I wasn't looking in the right places. Anyways, just wanted to say hi and tell you of my findings. Okies, take care and have a good one, talk to ya later! :)

Rosie Lee Fuchs
Hi Mr. McNeil, Rosie Lee Fuchs was my Great Grandmother and I have been trying to match her to her husband at the time of her death. She is buried at Crawford United Methodist Church Cemetery and was added by you. His name is Louis H. Fuchs and is buried at Mobile Memorial Gardens with his second wife. He was added to find a grave by Our Family History. I wasn't sure how to go about this since they were added by two different people. If you could help me out I sure would appreciate it.

Thanks,
Carol Ann

Thanks so much. I was so afraid I wasn't going to make myself clear. If one feels so close to someone they shouldn't be passed on. In some cases I am closer in relation. Oh shucks Ancestors are laugh at us about some of our feelings. Thsnks so much.
