RE: Albert Pitts Memorial Page
Bennie - it was my honor to sponsor Albert L Pitts memorial - he was a great friend and Air Force buddy and I took the liberty to add some photos of him on your memorial taken overseas when we served together as well being stationed together in the US. Thank you for being a Find A Grave contributor and your service as an Law Enforcement Officer - nobody seems to appreciate the hardships and dangers police officers have to face every day on the job these days. Have a great 2015 - what's left of it - Tom

Gravestone Photo Permission
I am happy to see that you photographed the gravestone of Effie Alford in Fairfax Cemetery (Memorial# 29046456).

I would like to add this gravestone photo to the (non-profit) Alford American Family Association's collection of Alabama Obituaries, where her obituary is (or will be) included. You can see the current collection at

May I have your permission to include your gravestone photos? If so, the photo caption will say:

Photo from [cemetery name, city, county, state]—
Permission granted by the photographer, Bennie Gross

And thanks so much for your gravestone photo work!

Best regards,
Pamela Alford Thompson (Find A Grave #47195155)

Hi Bennie,

You have a lot of Trammell headstones. Are you related to them? Do happen to know where I could get a photo of Elisha S. Trammell b.1802?

Thanks for your help.

RE: Fairfax cemetery in Valley, AL (name change?)
Hi Bennie,
Thanks so much for your quick reply! I figured out after writing you, with some more digging, that Old Bethlehem is also known as Glass Cemetery. I have an old Grand Aunt buried there (Memorial# 14501687), and there are Find A Grave photos on her page already, that you took. I was just looking for these various sites on a map so I'd know where they were. Again, thank you so much for your time and offer of assistance!

Fairfax cemetery in Valley, AL (name change?)
Hi Bennie,
Your name is listed on a photo for the Fairfax cemetery in Valley, AL. I was wondering if you knew whether or not this cemetery was called Old Bethlehem Baptist Church Cemetery long ago? I have a very old relative there (from 1897), so trying to confirm her location.
Thanks in advance!
