Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been researching my family genealogy for quite sometime, but have been a contributor of Find A Grave for a short time, compared to some of you out there.

On any of my memorials, if you see a mistake please let me know. I will not be offended, and will make the corrections. If I have any memorial posted and you are a relative of that person and I am not, I would be happy to transfer them to you. Most of my memorials are family members, some are not. They aren't trophies, so let's put them with their families.

Bryce Hospital Marker
I got your message but I am not seeing it on either of our sites to respond.

My dad and I went to Bryce hospital in Tuscallosa some years ago and requested his whole file. Dad had to show ID and tell how he was related then sign an affidavit that he was his grandson to get the records. They really didn't ask for much proof but then he died in 1915. Although I think this was like 1992 and the privacy laws are different so it may depend on what year it was. It was like .50 cents a page then. The marker was listed on the records. They said it had either rusted or whatever they couldn't locate the site. We wanted to place a marker but they are selling the land and are creating memorials for all that they have records for. not sure what that will entail but I gave them his full name and dates as I know them.
My grandmother said when the bypass went in for Northport they moved the graves and it may have been rusted then so didn't get moved. who knows. But the locater number is on the records. Hope this helps.

I don't have further info on Gracey.
The info on Mary J. came from Joel Palmer in the Cemetery Inscriptions of Marion County, Alabama book. My email address is on my Profile.. You have emailed me before..
Glad I could be of some help..

RE: Connection: the Peter Martin Scotts
The Peter Martin Scott, who went by the name Martin, (born 1831), buried at Bryce Hospital, is indeed the son of Peter and Jane Williams Scott. Therefore, the brother of your ggrandmother Sarah Scott Emerson.

The Peter Martin Scott (born 1858) buried at Single Springs Cemetery is the son of George Washington Calvin Scott and Hannah Beal Scott.

George is brother to both Peter Martin Scott (born 1831) and Sarah Scott Emerson (born 1843).

Jane Williams Scott would have been in her 50's when the Single Springs Cemetery person, Peter Martin Scott (born 1858) was born, and that is not likely, especially during that time period.

I've been doing this research for over 45 years, and am VERY thorough in my research BEFORE I ever commit information to a website which I share with others. There is so much misinformation on Ancestry, and the internet in general, that I use great caution in verifying information prior to adding the info on findagrave. I was also able to conduct numerous interviews with elder Scott relatives because I began my efforts many years ago.
I am a direct ancestor to Peter and Jane Williams Scott and very passionate about researching my family ties.

Hope this is helpful to you,

RE: Mitchell Descendants
Awesome Olva, thank you. Do you know if anyone has found where we came from to the United States? I believe that's still a mystery to most of my family. It seems we have been in the area a very long time!
