Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am currently working as a Research Biologist at the Univ of Alabama at Birmingham - UAB. I am a mother of 2 and grandmother of 2. My oldest child, my son Randall, was killed in 1986 by a drunk driver. He was only 17 years old. That is what prompted me to join FaG in the beginning. My first memorial was for him.

My daughter is a school teacher and the mother of 2 really great children. She thinks I'm daffy for taking time to shoot cemetery photos but then she is young. I think the genealogy bug will eventually bite her.

We all enjoy camping and hiking, sitting around the camp fire. I do enjoy fulfilling photo requests. My Grandchildren like to go with me now to walk through the cemeteries and helps to locate the correct markers.

Due to certain persons copying my Photographs and biographies of my family members without asking; I now require a request to use. Sorry to be so difficult. This ONLY APPLIES to my family members. All other photos you may use without asking.

Whenever I go to a new cemetery, I usually take pictures of all markers with the same surname I am looking for, people may not know that there are more family, more relatives in the same cemetery. and if this results in finding new names for the cemetery, I do my best to add this to the cemetery list..

NOTE: If I have added a memorial that belongs to your research; I will gladly transfer to you ~ Just ask!

Ellen "Fanny" Bradley Wright Abbott
I am a descendant of Ellen through her son, Lonnie Grover Wright. Lonnie was born on December 1, 1905, in Prattville, Alabama, to Ellen & John Henry Wright. I acquired a copy of Lonnie's death certificate yesterday. On his death certificate, Ellen is listed as Ellen Bullard. Ellen was the daughter of Milton Anthony Bullard & Mary Ann Bradley. Please make the changes to the listing. Thank you.

If you don't mind, would you give me your son's name. I would like to add a memorial flower to his memorial. Mike, my friend, who you got the headstone photo for always brought me flowers to work from his garden. He was a very dear friend. Since he loved flowers so much, I would love to put one on your son's memorial for me and for him.

Headstone photo

Thank you so much for moving the headstone picture to the first memorial. I didn't realize that there was one for Mike when I added mine. Terry and I have been working on this and now it is complete and I can delete mine. Thank you again for all your help and cooperation. I was sorry to read about your son. Please accept my sympathy.

Michael Walter Miller gravestone photo
There are 2 memorials for this person in Alabama National Cemetery. Would you be able to add the gravestone photo to the other memorial? It was actually created first. Thanks. ~T Burt

Thank you so much, Roberta Carter (RLC #47029676)
