Bio and Links
Bio Photo My grandmother got me started in genealogy before I was 10 showing me photos of all sorts of ancestors and telling me stories about them. I have worked seriously on genealogy for about 30 years, even going back to college and earning a bachelor degree in history. I have much knowledge about the South, Alabama in particular. I don't live in the South but would be happy to help where I can.

When you find a photograph on a memorial, look to see who submitted it and give them credit for the photo if you download it. ALL photos have the name of the submitter associated with the photos. Look below the photo for "Added By:" Some require you to get permission first. Check the submitter's home page for instruction by clicking on the name of the person who added the photo.

You may use my photos as long as you give me credit and you are in no way profiting from them.

Hi – Thank you for adding the memorial and newspaper death notice for Benjamin F. FENNELL (died 1915). I am wondering if you are kin to him in some way? I found that his grave has only an adult-sized brick ledger with no inscription, and I have confirmed his Confederate service (actually in Company E of the 48th Georgia Regiment), so he is eligible to receive a grave marker from the Veterans Administration for his military service. I intend to apply for one (I have obtained several VA grave markers for local individuals in the past), but the application will need to be authorized by someone who is kin to him – however, it doesn’t matter how distant or require documentation. If you are not kin, are you aware of someone who is that I might be able to contact? Thanks again - John

Thanks for your time and diligence toward improving this memorial by adding Jeptha's first name. It is much appreciated.

RE: Kimballs
It is possible. The record I found only has that she died in Lowell and was born in Scotland. (nothing about burial)

I'm still curious if there are more headstones on that lot in the cemetery that might be buried. It was a large lot.

Hi Carolyn, I received your edit to link Eben Kimball and his brothers to Mary Dewar Kimball (1810-1869). I have a question in to the person who created her memorial in Scotland. Her death record states she died in Lowell, MA. This is where they all lived. Her sons and husband are buried in the Lowell Cemetery. I asked where she found the info that she was buried in Scotland. I can see no reason why she would be there. (She was born there but nothing states buried there) It is possible her headstone is buried just like Eben and Gilmans were. I might head over to the cemetery one of these days and ask if she is there too. Denise.
