Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born on a Sunday, November 3, 1946 to Eugene Henry Cross and Lillie Leona Ogle Cross. Went to school for 10 1/2 years at Boaz, Alabama schools and finished my last 1 1/2 years at Sardis High School which is only about 4 or 5 miles from Boaz. Then went to Gadsden State Junior College at Gadsden, Alabama Fall of 1965 until I joined the Navy July 11, 1967. Did four years in the Navy and served aboard the USS Massey DD778. Came back home to Alabama and worked various jobs until February 13,1979 at which time I joined the US Army. Retired May 31, 1995 as a Sergeant First Class/E-7. Am now living again at Boaz, Alabama. My claim to fame is falling over Noccallula Falls in Gadsden, Alabama May 7, 1961 when I was 14. The falls is a 90 foot drop. It broke my nose and bruised me up pretty much but was able to be in school after missing only one day.

I enjoy visiting different cemeteries when I have a chance. There is a lot of history recorded in each cemetery. I sometimes list people here at Find a Grave, also when I have a chance. I think people need to be listed so people know that this or that person spent time here on earth. If I happen to list a relative of yours and you want to add to it or don't want it listed at Find a Grave, please email me and let me know. Thanks for your understanding.

RE: Matilda Brooks Ogle
If she is who I think she might be, then yes she is my 2nd great grand aunt. Her brother, Alexander James Brooks is my 2nd great grandfather. I have been researching their father--he was killed in the Battle of Chickamauga 20Sept1863. Is Matilda buried there with her husband?

Do you happen to have any info on Whitt Butler Ogle's wife, Matilda? I am trying to find out if she is Elizabeth Matilda Brooks?
