Bio and Links
Bio Photo One of the best features of Find A Grave is that it provides a forum where years of genealogical research can be shared with others. Please let me know if you have additional biographical or statistical information for any of my memorials, as it is always welcome. The wealth of knowledge that others have sent to me through Find A Grave is astounding.

If you are aware of links for parents and/or spouses that I have not yet added, I would appreciate it if you would use the edit tab to leave the name and memorial number of the person or people who should be linked.

Thanks to all those who have generously shared your family stories and beautiful photos with me. I sincerely appreciate being allowed to add them to the memorials for your loved ones. The pictures and studio portraits that for years have been carefully preserved in family photo albums, add such a wonderful dimension to Find A Grave. They help create a memorial tribute that is all the more special and meaningful.

Before asking for a memorial transfer, please determine whether or not this is really necessary. Transfers of management should only be requested if you have extensive changes to make to a memorial. You can add photos and suggest corrections even if you are not the memorial manager. Simply having someone in your family tree is not grounds for a transfer request. It would be impossible for all contributors to manage their entire family trees.

Transfers will only be considered if they comply strictly with Find A Grave guidelines. You must state your exact relationship to the deceased. People who request transfers and then fail to improve and maintain the memorial are certainly not honoring the memory of their family member.

Bulk surname transfers will not be considered under any circumstances.

Unless otherwise noted, all bios on my memorials were researched and written by me. Post-1922 verbatim obituaries have not been included in order to avoid copyright violations.

I have put a lot of time and effort into my memorials on Find A Grave. I strive to make sure that the information on them is as accurate as possible, but I am realistic and know that mistakes do happen. Please use the edit tab to leave a message regarding any errors or omissions that need to be corrected.

By working together, we can continue to build Find A Grave into a better and better site!


Note: 30 Sep 2013 marked a very sad day for all Find A Grave contributors when the founder of this website sold us out to

I will continue to add to and maintain my memorials as long as Find A Grave remains a completely free website, open to all without charge.

You have that her husband Wash died in 1939. He didn't die until 2004. So they must have divorced and she just listed herself as widowed. Seemed to be the thing to do back then to say widowed instead of divorced.

RE: Larry Clendenny
You did that today? I had those articles and didn't even think to send them to you. Thanks for all your hard work.

RE: Larry Clendenny
You're welcome, I was comparing any Clendenny burial in F.A.G. Calhoun county against my family tree and Genealogy Trails where my cousin has been contributing. Trying to sync everything. Insanity at it's finest.
Thanks for updating today.

Hi Lynn,

In the memorial for David you have Jesse Moses listed as his father. This is wrong. Jesse and his wife, Emiline Sarah Putney, were the parents of Orinda and the Uncle and Aunt of David. David's parents were Joseph Moses and Mary Piper of Epsom, NH.

Thanks for all the work you do!

Estelle Cotton Rowen Mortz Jackson
Hi Lynn,
Estelle Find A Grave #44305381, is my Great aunt. She was my grandpa Hernander Cotton's sister. She was born to David Bruce Cotton and Dora Young Cotton.
In 1908 her parents divorced, David had abandoned his wife and children so Dora filed for divorce. In 1909 James Calvin Coggins and Mary Francis "Fannie" Davis Coggins (Hernander and Estelle's great great grand parents through Dora) petitioned the court to adopt the two siblings because Dora had left them with their gggrandparents, taking only their baby brother Oscar with her. There her brother and Estelles name was actually changed to Coggins. Even though when grown Hernander changed it back to Cotton. However on Estelle's marriage license to Wash Rowen it list her as Coggins.
The W C Coggins you found them living with in 1920 was their great uncle and still their gggrandmother. James had died just a couple years prior. Estelle only ever had the one child Henry Hernander Rowen. Estelle and my Grandfather were very close even though they lived far apart. If you could transfer her to me so I can update her story.

RE: Caroline Brannam Dewey

Thank you very much for all that you have done.

I am still looking for the rest of Caroline's family.

Her father Absalom Brannam is listed in the 1840 Census of Hamburg in Calhoun County.
It lists:
Males under 5-(This would be her brother Charles)
Males 30 thru 39 - 1 ( her Father Absalom )
Females 10 thru 14 - 2
Females 15 thru 19 - 2
Females 30 thru 39 - 1 ( her mother Mary )

There are three females that I have not located yet.

If you happen to come across any more Brannon,Brannam or Branham names that might be part of this family, please send me a message

Al Brannon
