Bio and Links
Bio Photo I live in (born and raised) Lauderdale County, Alabama. My roots run deep as my ancestors were here before Lauderdale County became a County.
My interest in History and Heritage started at a very young age, when I would sit in my Aunt's lap and listen to all the stories about my relatives.
Before this internet technology, I spent many, many hours on rolls of unindexed microfilm at the library looking and tracing my roots.
My lines are, Favors, Springer, Thompson, Hillis, White, Howard, Williams, Newton, Powers, Belew, Belue, Shelton, Downs, McKinney, Harvey, Phillips,
Allen, Rice and Whitehead.

The memorials I do on FAG are in Lauderdale and Colbert County. As time permits, I photograph cemeteries in my area.

Memorials by Lori
Hi Joy - I saw your comment on William Parrish and the mess of memorials by Lori and she was kicked out for a while from the Find A Grave staff. I feel sorry for Susan as she has had them all transferred to her without wanting them all. She is slowly transferring memorials to those who maintain many and live in the area. She transferred many to me for the Edmonds, WA area.

Just didn't want you to give up on the FindAGrave mess with new transfers. I have had difficulty also, and Susan has been awesome. Just send her a note and I am sure she would be willing to help out. Explain any mess and am sure she would help. BUt she was swamped from unwanted transfers...

Good luck in your research!
Edmonds, WA

RE: William Parrish
Well - my edits for Wm H Parrish were posted ASAP. And you posted a photo of his marker on the Lorie (Susan Ing) memorial. I usually try to go by which memorial was created first.
I applaud your work on Greenview. That's a lot of walking if nothing else!

Thank you
Thank you for the work you do documenting. Recently you documented Carolyn Wright Regan (1944 - 2014)*

That was helpful to me on many levels.

WE are related through family you have listed. You seem to have all the same names but Hammond. Springer, Howard, Belew's, Sheltons, and Willaims. Many others!

Thank you for transferring Direct Hammond's in my line.

Thanks Hayes

Hello, just wondering if you have any more extended information on Lizzie Evans family...she was my great grandmother...I am the granddaughter of Celestine.

Also, anyone in the Mayes/Evans or extended family tree is more than welcomed to request to join the group I started:

DAVIS- Find a Grave # 114349766
Joy, I am researching my Davis ancestors in Lauderdale, Alabama and was wondering if the R.W. Davis of this memorial in Grisham Cemetery, #114349766 was "Robert Wesley Davis" son of John Henry and Rebecca Davis. I am trying to find them, R.W.'s brother and my second Great-Grandfather, John William Davis who married Delila Adaline Durham in Florence,Alabama. Do you have any Davis Family contacts in the area that you could put me in touch with? Thank you so much for all your hard work with Find a Grave.

Lena Lorene Davis Hill
Hello, I am from the Davis Family, are you related to Lena ? I was wondering why I couldn't find a record for Lena. I see she was cremated. George Davis
