Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been into genealogy since 1979. I co-authored the Morgan County Cemetery books in the 1980's. I have published a book on my Compton family and my Lynn family. Also other publications for the Morgan County Genealogical Society.

I have been married for 57 years. We have two children and five grandchildren living and one that died at age two years and a precious 3-year old great-grandson and a one year old great-granddaughter and a 3 month old great-granddaughter.

I enjoy scrapbooking, cemeteries and photography. If I have entered incorrect information or you have something to add to a memorial, please let me know via the SAC on the memorial. I will be glad to transfer memorials to a member according to FindAGrave guidelines. Send your requests via the SAC on the memorial you want transferred; otherwise I will not transfer.

I love FindAGrave. It is a great way to honor those that are no longer with us and preserve history for future generations.

Please visit baby Zack's memorial and leave him a flower. I miss him so much.

Where did you get this obituary info? My great grandmother is Edna Wilson that is listed in this obituary as his daughter but she was born in 1906 and according to the picture of his tombstone, he was born in 1909. So this couldn't be her father? Just trying to find out a little more about my great grandmother's side of the family.

James Quentin Houser
You have created two memorials for James Quentin Houser in the Somerville Church of God Cemetery.
Memorial# 57801768 and Memorial# 57801761. One has the obit and the other does not. These are duplicate memorials. Could you please consider removing the one without the obit. Thank you for all you do.

I am the nephew of Joseph Coughlin (memorial #62858685) and I would like to thank you for adding his memorial to the site. Would you be kind enough to transfer management of his memorial? I have created a virtual cemetery of my family and would like to link the memorial.
Again, thank you for the time and effort you've put into this work.

Can you give me directions for Hughes Cemetery in Morgan County, Alabama. I requested a gravestone photo for Ethel Goodson, mem # 32484426 and her son Owen, mem # 32484447 but they was unable to find the cemetery. I appreciate your help. Thank you, Barb.

RE: Reuben Marshall Holmes
Mom left me the ancestry information in her will. She was the one who got me started in this when she was alive. She use to tell me all kinds of stories. Now I can't stop. I have found several wraps between her side and my dad's side. Also found a wrap on my mother's dad's mom's side to her. Which was kind of interesting. Whenever I found something I wanted to pick up the phone and call her. I remember Mom going to the library doing research before computers and then coming home staying up late writing in her books. I ran into the Drinker side the other day while looking at some stuff in her tree. I remember her talking about the name but don't remember what it was. Ruben was actually related to me twice he was my 2 gr grandfather by adoption and 3 gr grandfather by birth. Well good luck in your research.
