Bio and Links
I am a retired Alabama State Trooper. I have been doing genealogical research on my family lines for about 20 years. For the past few years I've put my research on the "back burner" but now that I've retired, I'm back into it. I enjoy going through cemeteries and each headstone tells only a very short history of that person's life. I now get to do several of my favorite hobbies, all at the same time, history, genealogy research, photography, walking through cemeteries, and motorcycle riding.
Not all of the headstones I list are family lines. If you find a correction or have additional information, just let me know.
If you have any ATWELL'S and transfer them to me, I'll take good care of them, but I will not transfer any ATWELL'S.

I sent a correction for listing her mother. I also included her father. The obit is right but the link to the mother is incorrect. She is my cousin and our family would appreciate it if you would correct the relationship. Thank you! Mary Sue Scott from Bland County, Virginia
