Please take time to read findagrave rules and please do not leave an obit on a page created by me in the flower section; Thank you.

If you should find errors in anything I have submitted, please contact me for updates and corrections. If you wish to add anything to the bio for anyone please let me know. I will be glad to add to the submissions or if in your family consider transfer to you. Thank you.

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

I have made a few changes to some profiles you put up on here. Please allow them to be changed. I am new to this site and am not sure how things work. Thanks.

Mary I just wanted to let you know that although Mama was considered being from Washington Co, she was born in Galveston, TX. I would like for her Memorial to show that info. Yes Uncle Benny just told me a couple days ago that you are Uncle Walter's daughter. Not sure if we've ever met, but would love to speak to you. Tonya Moseley Jones is my cousin and I believe you may be one of the links she is looking for in her search for our ancestors.

Hello, Please correct the info on Vieva Chason Crosby's Find A Grave site. Her birth date is Oct. 13, 1909 not Sept. 13th. Check the headstone and SS Death Index. Thanks so much. Wanda Baldridge

Could you please get a photo of his head stone,he was my brother-in-law. Also on his page could you add another sibling? He also had a brother named John Sidney Irby (B:5/20/29,D:11/2/13).
Thanks for your work. I too am a volunteer and find the work rewarding.

Melissa Ray Roney is my great grandmother.
My paternal grandfather was Frank Bassett Roney (her son which I have been totally unable to find him in any cemetery)... and I thought I would give you more children to add to Melissa's memorial:

Lewis Edward Roney 1882 - Deceased
George Ira Roney 1885 - 1928
William "Bill" Roney 1888 - 1933
Frank Basset Roney 1899 - 1957
Addie S Roney Yawn 1903 - 1989
Isaac "Ike" W. Roney b.6 July 1894 d.30 Apr 1943

This information is from my LDS Family Search Records. {and if you have any suggestions to helping me find the cemetery that Frank Basset Roney may be buried in, pls email me). Thanks

Absolam Payne(Not A.E. Payne) & Sophronia Loftin
Hi Mary, I've just joined & had a little info to hopefully contribute. I noticed that someone had indicated that Absolam E. (A.E.) Payne (1808-1880) & buried at CenterRidge, Dale, AL was married 1st to Sophronia Loftin & 2nd to Eliza Payne Trawick. While we do not know for sure yet who A.E's first wife was, we know that it was not Sophronia Loftin. She was the 1st wife of cousin Absolam Payne (1808-1886) The families are easily found from 1840 onward. After Sophronia's death between 1852-1855, Absolam married 9 May 1855 Maranda Shiver. There are 11 known children from 1st marriage & 7 more from his 2nd.
Meanwhile, Absolam E.(possibly Esby) Payne can be found in Dale County Alabama state census with 4 (probable) sons & 3 (probable) daughters. It is impossible to say for sure as they are not listed in any way other than tallies. A.E. is found in 1860 onward married to my 3rd great grandmother, Eliza Payne Trawick Payne. There are several of us searching tirelessly for the family in 1850 federal census. The A.E. Paynes, Thomas F. Trawicks & several other Dale County families cannot be found in 1850. I have pieced together my best case scenario on Ancestry under Absolam Esby Payne Who He Was & Who He Wasn't, but there is still much to be done. Thanks, LyndaKaye

Pilgrims Rest Missionary Baptist Cemetery
Mary - I am assuming you entered the info for this cemetery. If so, the location is incorrect. The cemetery is actually located in Green County, Mississippi, very close to the Ala/Miss state line. This reference gives details and GPS coordinates for the cemetery:

If you can, please correct the location for this cemetery - thanks
