Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been doing genealogy since 1979. I co-authored the Morgan County Cemetery books in the 1980's. I have published a book on my Compton family and my Lynn family. Also several publications for the Morgan County Genealogical Society.

I have been married for 58 years. We have two children and five grandchildren living and one that died at age two years and three great-grandchildren.

I enjoy scrapbooking, cemeteries, photography and antique shopping.

If I have entered incorrect information or you have something to add to a memorial, please let me know via the SAC on the memorial. I will be glad to transfer memorials to a member according to FindAGrave guidelines. Send your requests via the SAC on the memorial you want transferred; otherwise I will not transfer.

I love FindAGrave. It is a great way to honor those that are no longer with us and preserve history for future generations.

Please visit baby Zack's memorial and leave him a flower. I miss him so much.

Londsey Liles
I think I may be related to the Lile/Liles family. My grandfather changed his name on his birth certificate from Lile to Liles and I do not know for sure but his father would have to be Grant Lile whose parents were Mary Belle Sims and James Lile who were from Trinity County Alabama. If you can contact me I need help to figure if this is indeed true or just smoke i do t need.

Yes there is an old fence around it. It is difficult to find if you don't know where to look. I'll send you directions later. It's on private property and you would need to get permission to see it.
The larger cemetery where James Ratliff the son is buried is in front of the house that he built. Most interesting place to visit.

Mary Wilhite Johnson/Henry Thomas Johnson
I was hoping for your help with a problem I am having.

Nancy Jane Wilhite Johnson (Alfred buried at Wilhite Cem) she is the daughter of Ezekiel and Mary Powell Wilhite.

I believe that Mary Elizabeth Wilhite Johnson (Henry Thomas Johnson) is also the daughter of Ezekiel and Mary Powell Wilhite, but no proof.

I have found some info on Mary's descendant's:
Daughter Zenia Johnson (Barney) Lynn b 7-6-1889 - d 1-10-1985)
buried Powell, sons Spurge Johnson 1894-d 1-6-1936 buried Powell,
Clay Johnson. Stepdaughter Jessie Inez Johnson (Arthur) Ball buried
Powell Cem. Zenia’s daughter Annie Ruth Lynn (Robert) Ball married
12-12-1945 Morgan Co. Al

I seen in your bio that you had done a Lynn family history. Do you happen to know if Mary & Nancy are sister's?

Do you know how close the graves are to each other??

Hope to hear from you.

Hi there this is my ancestor! He was married to Anna Pace Foreman. I have added his birth date and locations in the edits. Do you have a photo of his marker. I think Ann is buried in Alabama, I will find her and have that linked up.

Thank you so much for the obituary. Edna is my Great Aunt and I really appreciate this, but this isn't the first time you've sent an obit to me, you sent me one on my grandfather Thomas Price Thompson also. Again thank you so much.

James Ratliff
These graves aren't in the large cemetery in front of the old home. The larger cemetery is where James Ratliff's son is buried also named James. I took these pictures and the graves are located about a mile from there. Anyone have any questions they may contact me.
