Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've been into this genealogy thing for quite a number of years, but seriously only recently upon retirement and the internet. With my grandfather and father both being photographers, photographing cemeteries so others may fill in their family history is only a natural for me. Originally from Bakersfield/Maricopa California, I now reside in Huntsville, AL, and am doing mostly Madison and Lincoln County Cemeteries along with others in the surrounding area. If you find errors or if you'd like to add or change information let me know - I'm accommodating. The main families I'm researching include Allen, Banta, Crites, Jewett, Kirkpatrick, Meriwether, Macmurdo, McCracken, Overton, Renfro, Trimble & VanLoon on my side of the family, and Blaylock, Dean, Hill, Howard, King, McElyea, McKee and Posey on my wife's side. One of my other hobbies is collecting automobile pictures - that's a 1949 Buick Roadmaster Convertible.

Hi Sidney,
You sent me an obit for Sidney Shasteen. I would be happy to add it to his memorial, but it appears the beginning of the obit was cut off. It starts in the middle of a sentence with " for Acme Mechanical Co. of Manchester...". Could you check and send me the missing part? Thanks and have a good day!

Awesome Roadmaster
I remember fondly my mother's 1956 Buick. It was huge. I thought the fold down arm rest to the driver's right was a kiddie seat. And there were velvet ropes like in movie theater lines on the backs of the front seats. And it was such a huge cavernous boat of a car. The back seat was the size of a living room. :)

Sidney,

John H. Gage is my father. I thank you for putting his memorial up. Thank you for that. I was wondering if you could transfer it to me. I already manage my mother's and my brother's. Thank you so much!

Sidney,

How did you know to list my dad so quickly on Find A Grave?
I do appreciate it, and was going to paste his obituary write-up, like you did, so our Pickens family, relatives and friends can view it in the future.
My dad's wife, Chris, should have a headstone ready any day now. I emailed her this listing today to remind her she can join this website, then post a picture of my dad, Herman's headstone, and even her favorite photograph.

Thank you for being selfless to list strangers & loved, ones like you do.
My wife & I lived in Owens Cross Roads 2008-2014, then I transferred back to her hometown of Corpus Christi Texas.

Sincerely,
Barry Pickens

Martin J. Posey site info
Sidney,I left you another message on William R. Posey's entry, and everything in it also applies to this one for my grandfather. I'm Vivian's (Posey, Brock, Taylor, Bailey)son.

Additionally, there are a few other errors on this specific site and on my grandfather's siblings and children's sites that also should be corrected. The identification of "Dorothy Marie Posey Bain" as one of his children is definitely incorrect. Dorothy was the second wife of Williard Kelton Bain, after he divorced my grandfather's daughter Doris (Posey,Neff, Searcy), and Dorothy was never a Posey at all. Doris's grave is located in the new part of the cemetary just in front of Mary Lou and Anna's graves and very close to my mother and father's graves. She is buried alongside her second husband (Harold Neff). In the Children's list, Dorothy's name needs to be removed, and Doris Searcy (per your convention)should be added. This change also needs to be made on my mother's,M.J.'s and Bernice's sites. Doris's name also needs to be added to the children's list on my grandmother's (Mabel/Mable Posey)site.

Doris had three husbands (Williard Bain, Harold Neff and Ray Searcy)and four children (Royce Bain, Lloyd Bain, Sarah Neff and Sheri Neff).

The listing of Mrs. J.D. Honey as a survivor in the obituary section also needs to be deleted. J.D.'s wife was Lona and, while she was a Posey of some relation, she was not a sibling of my grandfather or a child of my great grandfather.

This completes all of the issues that I identified. Since these sites/entries will be around "forever, I knew that you would want them to be as complete and accurate as possible.

Thanks,
Jim Brock
