|Bio and Links|
I am an avid genealogist concentrating primarily upon the Kirby surname and whomever the females in that family married. I have worked from my immediate family back to Richard Kirby and Sarah Small from Tennessee and am now working forward from each of their children to the present, a daunting task as my ancestors tended to be very prolific!|
My interest in cemeteries started right before I was supposed to retire from the Air Force in 2001 when I took my father to Scottsboro, Alabama to see where his father and grandfather were from and visit his great grandfather's grave. The cemetery where his great grandfather is buried was neglected and in very sad condition. We decided we'd go back there armed with a lawn mower and weedeater and take care of that cemetery at the next opportunity. 9/11 happened so I didn't get out of the Air Force when planned and then one thing after another kept us from going back. Last summer we had planned to revisit the cemetery and do what we could to preserve it. Daddy's health didn't allow us to do that and his death this past September ensured that the two of us would never be able to. I understand now that it may be too late to help that cemetery as loggers have pretty much destroyed it completely. That is very sad considering how long those tombstones had been around (all early and mid 1800's many had even withstood a war) and I am even more grateful for the pictures of them I took when daddy and I were there. Now I'm taking pictures of tombstones for two reasons, one being the obvious, searching for data on ancestors and two being the preservation of history.
Feel free to download any gravestone pictures I have taken and posted.

Thanks for the update. I added her birth and marriage dates to T.A. Boone memorial.
The last information I have for her was the 1940 Census listing. Do you know more of her biography?
T.A. Boone was my great-great uncle.

Thanks for sharing this picture. Jess Kirby was my husband's grandmother's [(Darthula (Kirby) Williams'] brother. One of these days I'll get into pursuing this line more thoroughly.

I linked her parents and updated her surname. Thanks for the info! If you have an obit or birth or death locations I would be glad to add those as well.
Thanks for the info. It sure helps to have the sources when suggesting changes to a memorial.
