No problem at all. I am glad to help. I am also from the area (Vernon, Alabama) and went back to visit this weekend and seen you needed the pictures so I shot them for you. I am related to the Wheelers so I was surprised to find that Pearl was a wheeler also.
My grandmother was Tip Smith, the daughter of Thomas Jefferson Smith and Theodocia Savage. Thomas Jefferson was the son of Thomas W Smith and Sarah Jane Davis. At the very least, we are working on cousin lines here because I have the Smith, Dodson, Betts, Caldwells from Rowan in my line as well. Do you have an ancestry account?

You are very welcome. I enjoy doing research. I started out going there to just get some photos of my family line (Easley) but ended up finding many more that were related to my other side. I am still finding family members that I didn't know were there! Out of all the burials there, I could not find less than 10 of the stones. The rest of the cemetery is a complete record though. I could tell where there were some stones at one time but they have been broken and are just stubs of rocks there now.
What names are you working on? Perhaps we have some of the same people in common and can determine some more connections. I know there is a cemetery in the edge of Alabama that has many relatives of some of the Rowan burials. Those photos are not on find a grave, but are on another web page.
This was my 1st cemetery to document and I really enjoyed it, even though it was July. I plan on doing more of them because it was so interesting and a fun project.

I'm so happy to have found one for you! It looks like it has been repaired at the base, so perhaps it was not there when others were looking for it.
From the best of my memory, it is on the north end, towards the back. I can tell by looking at the stones around it that it is in the older area, which is the north side. To the right of it is a very large, unusual one for Samuel Bell Betts and to the left is a more modern stone for a Lollar couple. There is another lady buried there with the maiden name McKissack, Ida M Vandiver.
