|Bio and Links|
I am Cherie Lynn Knight Jones. I grew up in Birmingham, Alabama. One of the regular family activities while growing up was going to visit the family graves keeping them clean and planting flowers. I learned how to find the ancestors and the cousins, visiting local county records offices, searching through dusty basements and then using phone books and dropping by the local newspaper to find the relies – dead and living. I worked in an Alabama cemetery for five years and then went on to become a journalist and photographer, living in Asia, the Middle East and finally Canada before returning to the United States. Now I research and enjoy family history. As I have found the ancestors and the cousins through the years, more and more I began to see how all people are related. Whether by blood or marriage in ancestry, whether by places or events in history, or whether by a common haplo-group thousands or tens of thousands of years ago we are all connected in life and in death – and on findagrave.|
I have had great pleasure in finding ancestors for my children and theirs, and my husband and immediate family, and all my cousins. The Virtual Cemeteries are for all of yall. You will recognize who is who in the list.
For my children: you see my lines now split into my paternal and my maternal. But you also see Knight that I have made for my Knight Cousins who are not related to Mz Pearl's lines. You will also see your children's additional sides lines. I will also work on splitting the Money ancestors into a paternal and maternal virtual group as well. But you do have a lot here already and as others can be located I will make memorials for them and add them to your virtual groups.

|Diane Gravlee||Lillian Trammell|
She was indeed buried in the York plot. Also there was Mae York Cummings, whom I assume was Lillian's sister. There is also a York-Cummings bench.
Breitbart is buried at Hillside Memorial Park

The page will be on in a few days. I am having technical problems with my graphics software at the moment. The enlarged photographs show the detail of the epitaph really well, however the Annie & Henry Lee side is a bit difficult to read.
|bill hartmann||Westoe Cemetery|
I have posted a photograph of the gravestone you requested.

I have several photographs of this grave. Unfortunately I haven't updated that page yet. I will post a pic here tomorrow. The reason I couldn't find the stone was the section on the plan is wrong.
The stone consts of a plinth with the epitaph inscribed on it, and an obelisk, which has fallen. On the reverse is the epitaph to Henry and Annie Lee.
According to the Westoe MIs there may have been another stone to Henry Lee however it is not there now. I will contact you again.

I have been searching and searching for my ancestors on my grandfathers side without much luck.....until I saw the findagrave memorial and the picture that you posted...of Thomas Byrd my 4th great grandfather. I see that you say the person didn't want the information shared beyond you. Thank you for posting the picture I would surely love to see the inscription if possible. Thank you for what you do. Maureen Demers.
|Jim Simpson||RE: Striplings|
I am not related. I am just working my way through the cemetery for fun. There are a lot of memorials to add and my plan is a complete survey with photos - all added to Find A Grave.
I did take a photo of the Stripling memorial. I see you have one with John Daniel. I added mine to Louie. I did not notice the minor leaning.
do you have a pic yet
