Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am southern born and bred. Born in Birmingham, Alabama and grew up in Columbus, Georgia. I am an Army brat. I retired in Oct 1998 from the US Army, after 26 years. I lived in Charlotte, North Carolina for a few years but returned to the area of my roots in May 2003, to Phenix City, Alabama.

I have always been interested in history, especially family history. My family lines are Blow, Laird, Driver, Highsaw/Hisaw/Hysaw, Staggs, Johnson, Newman, McNutt, Alvis, Blankenship, Harris, Thrasher, Nesbitt, Elam, Tucker, Nash and on my ex-wife's side Harper, Wache, Schramm, Masseron, Gansberg, Klunder, Appelberg & Loutzenheiser.

I enjoy walking cemeteries, especially old church or community cemeteries, checking the dates on the headstones, trying to imagine what the times were like for them.

Some of my memorials are of my kinfolk, but if I have a memorial that is not directly related or not related to me, I will gladly consider transferring it to a relative.

I am willing to look-up local obituaries and photographing headstones and graves in the local area (within 25 miles). All headstone photos that I post to Find-A-Grave may be used for posting to family trees. All I ask is that you give proper credit for the photo and it is not use for financial gain.

Please use the "Edit" tab to request a memorial transfer or to add updates and/or corrections to the memorials.

Des & I grew up together in Livermore and I had been trying to get in touch with her and came across her memorial page. Do you happen to know why Des passed at such a young age? Breaks my heart

Abner Lee Files, Sr.
For the record, Abner Lee Files is buried in the Files Cemetery, Mantachie, Itawamba County, Mississippi in an unmarked grave. Whatever type of grave marker used was destroyed over the many years, due to many conditions.
Second, he died 10 March 1854, Mantachie, Itawamba County, Mississippi
I hope the above helps.

Thank you,
Charles N. Files, Jr.

RE: Vance Prouty & Desiree Prouty
I was wondering who her mother was. Doesn't seem her father was married to her or he had another wife out there. The other two women he had married were not her mothers. I do know her mother's maiden name was Hearnesberger. Linda

Thank you so much for taking the time to locate and photograph the memorial for me it is greatly appreciated. I would like to ask your permission to use your nice photo (with proper credit) for a WWII project I am working on I hope you will not mind, please let me know if OK. I know many already give permission on your profile/bio but I still like to ask and make note as profiles can change over time. Thanks again for all your efforts in fulfilling my request, Cheers!
