I started off researching family history but more recently I have made it a hobby to photograph cemeteries and fulfill photo requests when possible. It thrills me to help fellow find-a-gravers :-) Feel free to contact me!You have permission to use any grave photos I post here. I took them for you. Also, I am as fast in responding to changes/ transfers as possible. 7 days max. I *WISH* WISH *Wish* people would not duplicate names in cemeteries. There is so much work to be done and it is a shame to waste even 5 minutes on a memorial that already existed. PLEASE check for duplications before adding your information!Also please verify your facts before adding someone to a cemetery. Just because the records say buried in a certain town does not give you the right to assume the cemetery. IF you have to do that, please NOTE on the memorial that you have done so!!
Georgia W Nichols I can see why someone could want to attach her to Elizabeth Ann Congleton James but she passed prior to the birth of Georgia W Nichols, in Bibb, Alabama,July 5 1844. Thank you, Lorene Jones

Thank you again for taking the photo of my husband's great-grandparents marker.
I know that it has been a long while since you took the picture, but I have a question. Do you remember where in the cemetery their graves are located?
My husband and I may get the opportunity to visit their graves in early October, but my husband is unable to walk unassisted due to diabetic complications. If we could find out the general area of the grave, then maybe I could park close enough for him to be able to see their graves without causing his feet further damage.
Thank you for any information that you can offer to us. Have a blessed evening!
David A Warren memorial #45539089 When I last checked for a pic of the grave there was not marker. I live near Austin and cannot get up there. Is there anyone who can check for a marker again for me. Thanks
Thanks for the updates, it is very appreciated. There is a duplicate for Frances Balch that is linked to Thomas Strahan. Could you link the correct memorial to Thomas and I will ask the owner of the duplicate to take it down.
