Bio and Links
Bio Photo I live in Marshall Co. AL, and have for some 59 years. Like most people on find a grave I love genealogy. I have been using this site for some time in finding my family. Someone asked me if I had ever thought about helping find a grave with taking pictures. I challenge you to join in this group of people. Find an old cemetery, and start taking pictures. These old stones are not going to hold up to nature.
My family list includes: Birdsong, Brumbeloe, Cobb, Cornelius, Culpepper, Davis, Dobbins, Edmonson, Garrett, Gilbreath, Gorham, Jordan, Larmore, Martin, Pruitt, Roden, and Sims.
You need to claim a photo request before you take a picture. This way no one else goes out of their way to take the picture and the photo request will be fulfilled. Please do not post a picture on a memorial that has been claimed by someone else. The photo request will not go away when you do this, and you do not get credit for the pictures.
I have chalked stones in the past, but due to rules brought to my attention I will not be able to chalk stones any more. Please see:

Fill free to send any edits you may need by using the edit button. I will be glad to transfer any memorial I have opened unless they are my family. Any picture I have taken you can copy, I just ask that you give find a grave the credit. This is a wonderful site for genealogy study.

Thelma Brumbelow
My grandmother, Edna G. Scoggins Godfrey is buried at Flint Hill Cemetery so I went there the other day and found your Thelma Brumbelow and Took a picture of her grave for you and posted it today. It's the first picture that I've posted on findagrave so I hope it turned out ok.

RE: Benjamin Graham
Hello Nancy,
I am not connected to the Graham family. I was helping Eddie Gorham do some research.
My Martins, Morgans, and Cokers came to Alabama during the early 1830's and settled in Calhoun, Cherokee, Etowah, and DeKalb counties.
My 2 great grandfather Charles Martin had a brother that supposedly went to DeKalb county, but I have never been able to figure out who he was (or their parents). That has been a brick wall that I have been banging my head on for years.

Re: Dobbins @ Concord Baptist in Rutherford Co., NC

Sorry that his headstone will not be helpful in determining how D. Miller Dobbins's first name is spelled. Also, Howard Wayne Dobbins's name is given as Wain on his shared marker with his sister Ruby, and his birth date is given as May, 28, 1921.

While at Concord, I also photographed the following Dobbins that were in the surrounding area if you wanted any of those:

Clara Dobbins 1886-1966
Ruby Dobbins 1923-1924
George Dobbins 1878-1959
Myrtle May Dobbins 1903-1904
George Henry Dobbins 1895-1897
Alpha Dobbins 1847-1917
James Dobbins 1847-1917

RE: Powers
Hi Nancy,

Thanks for adding the photos for William & Sallie Powers.

It helped confirm that these memorials are indeed the ones for which I was looking.
