Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've been into this genealogy thing for quite a number of years, but seriously only recently upon retirement and the internet. With my grandfather and father both being photographers, photographing cemeteries so others may fill in their family history is only a natural for me. Originally from Bakersfield/Maricopa California, I now reside in Huntsville, AL, and am doing mostly Madison and Lincoln County Cemeteries along with others in the surrounding area. If you find errors or if you'd like to add or change information let me know - I'm accommodating. The main families I'm researching include Allen, Banta, Crites, Jewett, Kirkpatrick, Meriwether, Macmurdo, McCracken, Overton, Renfro, Trimble & VanLoon on my side of the family, and Blaylock, Dean, Hill, Howard, King, McElyea, McKee and Posey on my wife's side. One of my other hobbies is collecting automobile pictures - that's a 1949 Buick Roadmaster Convertible.

Elizabeth Yarbrough
Elizabeth Mae Yarbrough, is listed as Marylou Elizabeth Johnson Yarbrough, in Stateline Cemetery in New Market, AL. She is my grandmother. Just curious where the name "Marylou" came from. Thanks, Sonya

Ruth E. Brown
Mr/Ms Allen, I have a birth year for this individual. On the marker it has 1918 with no day or month. I will add a photo of the marker to the memorial for Ruth and Robert Brown.

Hi Sidney,

While working on Find a grave tonight, I realized some time ago I had placed a duplicate memorial on find a grave for my cousin, Pauline Taylor. This certainly was not intentional. Not sure how I missed it. If you have no objection, would you transfer Pauline's memorial to me? Either way I will delete my duplicate.

I am really grateful for all your work.

Thank you,
Debora Nichols

I added the information you gave me to his memorial. I found his wife's obituary and her mother's name was Alma, (kind of strange)

Sidney Hamlett Allen
My grandfather, William Thomas Allen was Sidney's Brother. I remember my mom speaking about Uncle Sidney and what fun he was.
Their mother was Alice Hamlett Allen, memorial #125908967. Their father, Wm. James Allen remarried and is buried in Caswell County, North Carolina at the Gilead Presbyterian Cemetery. I forgot to write the memorial # down. Sidney's grandparents were Letitia A Allen and Joseph
Watson Allen #73988641. I think we are kissin' cousins. Contact me if you want to connect,
Have A Great Day,
Ann Jones

Would you please delete the photo, which you added from the funeral home for this memorial; I have added one, which I prefer more, and plan to also add grave photo in near future.

Thank you very much.
