Bio and Links
I am retired. 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.
In the future, please use the change buttons that FAG has provided. I do check these to see if they are correct, so if it seems to be in error, I will decline them.
I will not link unknown burials.

Karon Bosze
Obit for Andrew Joseph Johnson
Don, would you be able to correct the spelling of my name in my uncle's online obituary. I asked my other uncle to have it corrected for the paper, but guess that didn't happen. I am the niece listed as "Karen Bosze". My first name is misspelled in the obituary. (Yes, it happens, a lot). My first name is spelled "Karon."

His memorial #: 125332243
at Antioch Baptist Church, Houston, Co., AL

Thank you for all that you do!

Anya Faith Dziura, # 144687329
Don,
A couple of days ago I sent you the following message via the EDIT tab on her memorial:
---------------------------
Don,
I went to Riverside Community Church Cemetery yesterday but Anya wasn't interred there. I spoke with a church manager who told me that after Anya's service on April 11, her body was returned to Adams Funeral Home. I just talked to Adams Funeral Home and found out that Anya was cremated after the funeral service and her ashes were returned to her father. According to Mr. Adams, Anya's father has ordered an urn and Anya is not yet interred anywhere. I'll update you if I find out if, when, and where she gets buried.
Please adjust your memorial; Anya is definately not buried in Riverside Community Church Cemetery.
Rick Henderson
--------------------------------------
Did you receive the edit? If so, what are you planning to do about the cemetery error?
Thanks

My father, John Lee Atwell (1905-1970), Harvey (Buddy)Atwell, William Charles Atwell, Jr.,and Richard (Dick) Atwell were all brothers of Zelma and sons of William and Sallie. I appreciate your work. Thanks.

Mr. Atwell,

My husband is the 3x great grandson on James Gillespie Patterson through James' daughter Mary Eula Patterson who married Charlie Green Hughes. Would you be willing to transfer his memorial to me?

Thank you in advance for your time and consideration in this matter.

updates to eva b. hodges and Howard ray hodges
Hi Don,

I would like to request that these two records be updated to link as mother and son. I am Howard's granddaughter and know for a fact that Eva is his mother and not Dillon Brown Hodges as listed on his grave data. Dillie is Jordan I. Hodges 2nd wife but not Howard's mom. Eva died when Howard was very young.
Please contact me by my email address for further information.
Thanks.
