I am retired from US Army and retired from US Civil Service. Currently serving as Alabama Cemetery Preservation Alliance Represenative for Elmore County Alabama. I have been interested in finding the location Revolutionary Soldiers and Confederate Soldiers buried in Elmore, Coosa, and Tallapoosa Counties. To date I have located over 1500 soldiers buried in the tri-county area.
Haggerty Cemetery Hello! I just wanted to say thank you for the picture you posted of Haggerty Cemetery in Wetumpka, AL. I was struggling to find the cemetery but when I looked closely at your picture I saw the water tower in the background and that helped me narrow down where to look and I was able to located it. So THANK YOU!!
Kimbell Cemetery, Elmore Co. Hi - you posted the photo of Willie Powell. He may have been the grandson of Christopher Wesley Powell and Cyrene Brannen Powell. Cyrene supposedly died Dec 30, 1881 and is buried in this cemetery. (variously spelled as Serina, Cerinna, etc). There are unmarked graves there. Do you know of anyone who is researching that cemetery? Thx - RB
HENRY CLAY DILLARD Billie T. Thank you for the picture. That would be my Great Great Grandfather who I just found out about as a result of the unwarranted hoobla over the confederate flag. My research showed that he was buried at Atioch and that triggered my fond memories of family reunions held there when i was a little tike. Thank you again.
Ellis Harden marker Hello, The marker you have for Ellis Harden #35096134 also shows the dates for his wife, Eliza Harden at the bottom. I've created a memorial for her (I am of relation). Would you mind posting your photo to her memorial as well? I have her linked to his memorial
James Z Alford Billie-Thank you for adding my 2nd Great Grandfather's grave to the site. (James Z Alford). As you can see, he was a Confederate Soldier and was wounded (lost an arm and an eye) during the war. He was on leave when the war ended recovering from his injuries.
Again, thank you for taking the time to honor him.
