It really bothers me to see unmarked graves and graves with names but no dates; makes me want to find their families; some I do, some I don't. I wish I had enough money to replace all the monuments that need replaced and add those who don't have a marker! I would happily do so. After being in some of the cemeteries and seeing how many of the monuments are due to environmental conditions, etc; it has encouraged me to photograph and get as much documentation as is there because in future years; at least what is there now will be known and people able to see on findagrave.
Mark Cook a cousin, Jan W Smith, a cousin and I have been working together on our genealogy and others the past few years. Since Jan is in the area he does a lot of photographs and Mark travels once or twice a year to do cemetery photo's also. I have taken many myself as well.
I've been working on our family genealogy for what seems a life time! I started as a youngster with my grandparents, aunts, uncles going to cemeteries taking information and visiting relatives and friends taking information. I am from Washington County, love it and miss it; however, don't like the changes!! But, it is still my home though I don't live there or get home often. I have two sons and two grandchildren and have been able to pass the genealogy "bug" to them and hope they will continue when I am no longer able or around to do so. Mary

|Crystal Caton Berg||Caten/Caton|
My grandpa (Troy Caton) is the son of Benford Caten, who is the son of George Washington Caten. Interesting fact: the last name was spelled CatEn in my family until Benford decided he did not like writing "e" he preferred "o".(according to my grandpa) So he just changed the way he wrote it, no legal change as far as they know. If you notice, some of the family on here spells it either. So funny! Benford married Ethel, and they had two children, Gwen and Troy. They loved spending time with family and going to church. Ethel became a great seamstress who made wedding gowns, azalea trail made dresses and all sorts of things. They also became great ballroom dancers! Benford died of cancer in the 70's and Ethel died of Alzheimer's Disease in the early 2000's.

|Sandra Mulhern||John Green - 1827-1880|
I noticed your Find A Grave record for John Green in the Green Cemetery in Choctaw County, Alabama does not have a date of death. According to his gr.gr.grandson, Don Pedro Green, Jr, he passed away sometime in 1880. His headstone was damaged and the date of death is no longer on it. I am Don Green's distant cousin and am related through John Green's brother, Christopher Wren Green.
In 2013, I traveled to Choctaw County and met a descendant of John Green, Rankin Green. He showed me around the area, and helped me to locate the Green Cemetery as well as a cemetery that belongs to a black family that had a member who was a slave to the Greens. I am in contact with one of the slave's descendants.
I'd appreciate it if you would add his date of death. You will notice that I have prepared graves for all the family members buried in the cemetery, and have taken pictures of all.
|Dale Carpenter||Edit grave|
To Mrs. Mary Palmer
This is Dale Carpenter, I am E.C. Carpenter's son. I would like to be able to edit my Mother's grave information. I would like to be able to add information to her page. Would appreciate it if you would let me do this. I have tried to get in touch with you by email but have gotten no response. My ID # is 48663401. Thank you
|Linda||RE: Brogdon - Charity Chapel|
Mary: I responded earlier but am not sure it was sent. My great uncle John Brogdon married Molly Greer in Brewton, Escambia County, AL in 1921. Molly was the widow of Yancy Greer and all Molly's children were by him. John Brogdon was also previously married to Ella Norris of Santa Rosa County, FL ca1900. They had 2 daughters, Bessie and Cynthia, both of whom died young. I've been told that Ella N. Brogdon lived in Mobile and died in a fire at the boarding house she ran but I have not verified this.
I've never know a "Mary Polly Greer" but so many details about her match Molly (Hodges) Greer Brogdon and also Ella (Norris) Brogdon. Notice that Molly's maiden name is spelled "Hodges."
I've been told by a member of my Brogden (name spelled differently than Uncle John's) family that Uncle John's middle name was "Franklin" but have no written documentation. Maybe his headstone is verification. Feel free to ask more questions.

|Linda||RE: Brogdon - Charity Chapel|
Mary: My great uncle, John Brogdon, married Molly Greer in Brewton, Escambia County, AL on Mar. 6, 1921. Molly Hodges was married to Yancey Greer until he died. John B. was also married before, to Ella Norris of Santa Rosa County, FL--I belive in Baker, FL. Note the correct spelling of "Hodger" is "Hodges." I haven't seen her name written Mary "Polly"--but she was called Molly. Feel free to ask more questions.
The Death Records say that Ella Brogdon died in Mobile in 1954. I don't know if it's the same person you
Am leaving for a trip to Huntsville now. contact me again if you have more questions.
