I would be happy to help photograph grave markers for those seeking help. (As long as I can find it!)

Thank you very much, Michele! Not sure when I would have ever get back there to take that photo.

Just a word of caution re cleaning old headstones: they can be very brittle and easily damaged. I personally do not clean them. Certainly not with wire brush or strong abrasives or chemicals. Sometimes if you just spray them with water they are more readable. Some people use sidewalk chalk that will rinse off with the next rain. Just be very easy and non-aggressive with very old stones. Thanks again for all the great photographs!

Thank you very much for making these photos! This puts the "finishing touches" on recording this cemetery in which are buried many of my ancestors on my mother's side.

I believe he was in the 58th Alabama.
Hi, I believe my Great Great Grandfather is buried at the Resaca Confederate Cemetary. He's from Alabama. He died at the battle there in 1864. I fear he is in an unmarked grave but if you wouldn't mind, next time you go there see if you can locate a marked grave with Cornelius Clements on it. He was born around 1829 or 1830 and died 1864.
