Bio and Links
I am a Chambers County, AL native (fifth generation) now living in North Shelby County, AL. My g-g-great-grandfather founded the Methodist Church in Standing Rock, AL and was active in that community even though his farm was in Troup County, GA just across Wehadkee Creek.

I am particularly interested in the cemetery at the current location of the Standing Rock Methodist Church because three generations of my grandparents are buried there along with many, many other relatives.

I was introduced to my family history at an early age when my daddy took me to family landmarks, cemeteries and other historical sites in eastern Chambers County. I have dabbled in genealogy for many years, and am now in the process of compiling my notes and computer files into a document that can be printed and donated to the Chambers County, AL Archives in my home town of Valley, AL.

I enjoy sharing my information and photos with others researching my family lines.

RE: Resthaven
Been out their and it is a shame how they let the cemetery grow up. I don't know who is taking care of it at this time.

The last time that I went by there, there was a note on the door of the office stating that it was opening soon. Like someone had bought it. I have not been in the cemetery for a couple of months.

I was so in hopes that someone had bought it and would take better care of it.

The mausoleum looks fine from a distance, but it is in need of repair when you get up close.

Thank you Sandra. I was just getting into trying to link the memorials when find a grave went down. It is so much easier to make the links rather than having to send so many edit corrections.

I love that cemetery. I also found a few friends in it, that I was not aware that they had passed.

W.R. "Rock" Jackson

I saw that you had some messages regarding "Rock" Jackson and his tombstones in Chambers County. Here's a bit more about him and his F.A.G. Memorial:

He was my mother's GG-grandfather. My mother died on Jan. 18.

Thanks,

Don C.

The Roanoke Leader July 1903
NEWSPAPER ABSTRACTS FROM "THE ROANOKE LEADER", Roanoke, Randolph County, Alabama for JULY 1903

NEWSPAPER issue of Wednesday, July 15, 1903

At twelve o'clock Saturday night at his home at Hickory Flat, Dr. Thos. H. Bonner died. He had been in feeble health but was thought to be improving and had been up all day. He was buried at Standing Rock Sunday afternoon. He leaves a wife and five children. As the Leader had occasion to say once before during the lifetime of the deceased, so we say now again, that Dr. Tom Bonner was one of the nicest and best men in all this country. After a busy life, spent in behalf of his fellow man, may his rest be sweet and his reward be rich, beyond the reach of pain or care.
