|Timothy DeBoor||Burford Cemetery, Wilcox, Alabama|
I'm trying to clean up the memorials for Martha Mobley Crum Burford who is buried in the Burford Cemetery. There are currently three. One of the memorials, #26312885, has a photo of Martha's gravestone that you posted there on 28 Mar 2009. I am now managing the oldest memorial, #18776711, and would like to consolidate everything from the other two into this one. Would it be possible for you to post the photo of her gravestone on the #18776711 memorial? Then I can ask the managers of the other memorials to delete them. Thanks

It was my pleasure.
That cemetery is about 3 acres with markers spread from one end to the other with most being illegible.
I was very lucky to find your great-great uncle.
It was a beautiful day to go "graving".

I deleted the requested link so you will not get a notice that they were done. Some how we missed George Tyner, but did find a Fred Clifford Tyner. I made a memorial for him. Will look for George again next time we go out there.
|Teresa & Richard Ware||RE: Joseph M Walker|
You're very welcome. We did do Lillie Harris Walker, Leon and Mary. Part of Keith's was covered with mud and we will have to take something and clean it up a little. I think I do remember seeing Nancy and George Tyner there. We will go back there soon, we took a photo for someone else there and didn't like the way it turned out so we are going to retake it.
Its been along time...how are you?

I corrected my error of confusing their names on
'Find a Grave', added photo for Green Berry Bryars.
See this info that I put onto a prior note, but I do not see it now??
This is a note that I found 'somewhere'?
RED BERRY BRYARS was born in 1819 in Stockton, Baldwin County, AL, the sixth and youngest son of Lazarus John and Mary Smith Bryars.
In 1842 he married Sara Ann Fickling who was born July 13, 1822 and died April 19, 1888, in Stockton. There, they made their home farming the land. Census records list him as a farmer and lawyer. Twelve children were born of this union: Gerald, Lucinda, Mary C., Marion, Emma, Red Berry Jr., William, Louise, Frederick S., Ransom, Elizabeth and Annie.
When war came, he joined G.B. Hall's Militia which in time became part of Co. C 15th Confederate Cav. Records show that Bryars received a leave of absence from the military to serve as Baldwin County's representative in AL's legislature. On Nov. 12, 1863, he introduced a bill 'for the relief of indigent families of soldiers of Baldwin County and for the 'benefit of war orphans.'
Bryars died in 1870 from a heart attack. He never had a tombstone, but the family history placed his gravesite in the JAMES BRYARS CEMETERY in Baldwin County.
In 1992, family members placed a beautiful headstone on his grave. Some 200 decendants and family friends attended the service and sang "DIXIE" and re-enactors fired volleys in to salute his service to the Confederacy.
Now, let me go back to my entry and correct my error. If I can type Green instead of Red, that is!
Sorry about my careless error. I actually read your note as Green Berry! Must be dislexic (SIC again)??

Bryars is burried in the Bryars-McGill Cemetery,

Are you related to the Bryars family? My mother
was a Bryars and her mother was a McGill.
