Hi, I would love to add this headstone photo to my family tree on Ancestry.com with the photo credit to you of course. Please let me know if you object to this or to let me know how you would prefer the photo credit worded. If I do not hear from you , I will assume it is okay to use it. Thanks so much.

I just sent a request via your message board here... I know that you asked that requests not be made here and that if they were you would not honor them. I am just like you and rather my requests come from the memorial as well. HOWEVER, I couldn't do that for my request due to it was not submitted by you, I submitted the memorial for Katie, my request is for the picture submitted by you and there is no other way for me to contact you. I should have told you this in the request message but didn't think about it until I had already hit the Leave This Message...since there is no way to edit or delete messages I am leaving a second one explaining the reason I used your message board for the request. Thanks for reading both messages in advance... please accept my appreciation for your hard work on this site.

Could you please go to the memorial # 66453338 and delete a picture that you submitted to this memorial. The picture is of a concrete block that my cousin placed on the spot that was purchased by Katie before she passed so that the men who was going to dig the grave of his father who was to be buried next to her spot wouldn't get the wrong spot... at that time he placed three concrete blocks in a row, Katie's, his mom's and his dad... he done this so that the men would know where to dig his father's grave. I have a picture of a marker for her and her husband Neil that I would like to post on the memorial and it won't let me w/o it being sponsored because there are already five pictures there for her memorial...four that I have posted and the one you posted of the concrete block with her name spray painted on it... this needs to be removed please... could you let me know when it is deleted so that I might add the picture of their memorial marker.

Oak Forest Cemetery
Hi Kathline,

I found the following information in regards to
Oak Forest Cemetery, and thought you would like
to have it. The information will fill in some
blanks for the "unknown" graves you have listed.

Here it is:

Oak Forest Cemetery (Guins Cove) Blount County,
Alabama

I found this story years ago in a folder in the Wallace State Genealogy Library in Hanceville, Alabama. Just uncovered these notes today and this is my attempt at transcribing them.

Deep in Guins Cove in a beautiful grove lies a small cemetery once lovingly tended, but too many
years neglected and forgotten. Until two cousins, Lettie Johnson Dutton and Gladys Merrill, decided to undertake the of restoring it. So with the
assistance of other relatives and some friends,
the task was begun. it wasn't easy because the
cemetery was in a pasture and the stones had been knocked over, and it was literally grown up in grass, bushes and trees.

Finally, a fence and gate completed the restoration. And Lettie has been responsible for keeping the grass cut. No one knows exactly when
this cemetery was started but Lettie and Gladys remember hearing their Great Grandmother, Rebecca Johnson Culwell, and other relatives long since passed on mention that a little slave boy was buried there, so it must have been in existence since before the Civil War. Among those buried there are the following: Joseph S. Culwell, Great Grandmother of Gladys and Lettie; Lewis Davis, Grandfather of Lettie; Telitha Curl Davis and Missiour Johnson Dillashaw.

The author of this story is unknown.

Lettie Johnson Dutton is my Aunt, a sister of my
mother, Bertha Laverne Johnson. I visited this
cemetery years ago with Aunt Let leading us to its
location.

Also, I found a separate sheet with the following:

Oak Forest Cemetery Guins Cove

Joseph Stanwick Culwell - Born 1824 - Died 1885

Lewis Luke Davis - Born 1837 - Died Feb 7, 1887

Taletha Curl Davis - Died 1883, 3rd week of August

Mrs. Nann Culwell

Mrs. Missouri Johnson Dillashaw - Died 1900's?

Master Bramblett Johnson - Age 3 - Died 1858

Miss Josie Dillashaw - Age 2

Master John R. Davis - Died 1870's (Son of Luke
and Mary Davis)

Letty Davis - Age 2 - Died 1870's (Daughter of
Luke and Mary Davis)

Asentha Johnson

Susanna Johnson

------------------------------

Kathline-I typed this EXACTLY as I got it off
of Ancestry.com. I know this will help a lot of
folks researching their family history-just like
me. The Talitha Curl Davis mentioned-is the sister
to my great, great grandfather John Henry Curl.
I noticed that 3 of the names above have memorials
made for this cemetery-but the rest of the memorials are marked "Unknown", so this should help give the Unknown's a name.

Thank you for your work on Find A Grave.

Margaret Kuykendall White
Ms. Forrester, Margaret is my great-great grandmother and I am seeking any information that can "prove" the father-daughter relationship between Margaret and her father Peter Thornton Kuykendall. I have the ancestry info. but that is not "real proof". She dies before vital records are kept and I can not find any wills, settlement papers, obits etc. Since Peter was a Primitive Baptist preacher, I feel his Bible has to be "out there" somewhere, listing his children but I have had no luck finding it. If you have any information or ideas on what I might do next I would really appreciate hearing from you. Thank You, Retha Stephens
