I am a career Law Enforcement Officer serving the community since 1974. A fellow findagrave member pointed me to the findagrave website after he was attempting to locate a cemetery in the Centerville, Houston County, Georgia area and I have thoroughly enjoyed utilizing the website to locate family members and document grave sites wherever located. I have shared the website with many family and friends and have made several friends across the country as a result of utilizing the site. Should I ever really go into retirement, I plan to take a more active role in working on locating and documenting grave sites wherever I locate them and want to thank everyone in the findagrave family for all they do to make this site successful.

I have noticed that you have several Cooper family memorials, are any of them related to the Cooper-Hall family that I am researching. The family was located in or around Appling County, Georgia. Some have moved away and some stayed. Any help would be appreciateted.
RE: Old Chewalca Cemetery Hello Mr. Cooper, Sorry for delay in responding, but I've been out of town. As far as I can tell, the only way to get a cemetery name change is via the "Cemetery Correction Forum", by which one starts a string justifying such a change. I don't know who originated the name "Chamblee" for this cemetery. It appears as such in the Alabama Cemetery Registry & on USGS maps; it is also called "Chamblee" in the only published version I know of, which is by Robert C. Horn in "Tap Roots" (East Alabama Genealogical Society), Vol. 22, No. 1 (July 1984). I also don't know who originated the site for this cemetery in "Find-a-Grave"; I added my wife's Cooper ancestors there as well as some others I noted were not already added, because that was the already established site. I would hope that "Cherry" or Edna Ward or someone with the actual documentary backing would initiate the change to "Old Chewacla." Joseph W. & Julia Elliott Cooper are my wife's 3d great grandparents; are you related to them?
I have followed closely the wonderful work you have done in the Smith Family Cemetery. Indeed, this is my family as I am a double descendent of William Smith through Ardella and Needham. I would be proud to accept custodianship of the memorials you have so carefully created.
