Bio and Links
I am a retired Alabama State Trooper. I have been doing genealogical research on my family lines for about 20 years. For the past few years I've put my research on the "back burner" but now that I've retired, I'm back into it. I enjoy going through cemeteries and each headstone tells only a very short history of that person's life. I now get to do several of my favorite hobbies, all at the same time, history, genealogy research, photography, walking through cemeteries, and motorcycle riding.
Not all of the headstones I list are family lines. If you find a correction or have additional information, just let me know.
If you have any ATWELL'S and transfer them to me, I'll take good care of them, but I will not transfer any ATWELL'S.

I sent a correction for listing her mother. I also included her father. The obit is right but the link to the mother is incorrect. She is my cousin and our family would appreciate it if you would correct the relationship. Thank you! Mary Sue Scott from Bland County, Virginia

I sent a correction for her date of birth. She was my sister's Grandmother-in-law and I received her birth information from her daughter, Pam.

Bur: New Hinson Baptist Church Cemetery, Geneva County, Alabama.

I am sure this is a typographical error: Her year of birth shown is 1864, when on her tombstone it is definitely 1854. Is there any way you can change it to 1854? She was my g-great aunt. You do a fine job with your cataloging of cemeteries. Thank you. R. Brewer.
