|Bio and Links|
My name is Hunter. I am 18 years old and love history. I got started researching my grandmother's side after she died. It kinda made me feel closer to her knowing more about her family.|
I am also very intrested in local history. I am the youngest member of the Choccolocco Valley Heritage Society. I am very active in preserving history. I have acomplished placing two historic cemeteries in Calhoun County, Ala. on the National Registry of Historic Cemeteries: Pine Grove Cemetery- 1850's, and Zion Hill (White Plains) Cemetery- 1830's.
Here is a list of the families that I am working on: Gentry, Saffold, Hughes, McClain, Taylor, Deason, Hollingsworth, Bagley, Austin, Freeman, Ponder, and Brazzell.
Pine Grove Cemetery
Zion Hill (White Plains) Cemetery
In August of 2012, I was featured in the Anniston Star for being an "Untypical Teen" of Calhoun County, Alabama. That soon lead to the article being placed in the Eastman Genealogy Newsletter, and an interview on Youtube.
A great friend of mine, Mary Ann Ferguson, passed away on Feb. 9th. She is really the one that helped me get involved in Find A Grave. She was an amazing lady that would venture in any cemetery no matter the location or hot summer weather. She was the type of person that us genealogists need to look up too. She will be greatly missed.

He was 16 and in those days I guess that was pretty old. HA! I will change it on his tree. Any Gowens info you have will be greatly appreciated. Its been a big issue. I am going to Centre this week to work on it more. They aren't as sure about them as I thought. His dad died when he was young so that could be why. The Matthews, Hicks, Bryant and the worse has been Barnett. Thanks for the info!!
|Patty Foster||RE: Hollingsworth|
No, I'm not related, I just like to add a flower or flag or something for the people I add on Find A Grave.

Thank you for your interest in this old cemetery. I became curious about it because I live in the area and Robert Jemison owned all the land around here in the early 1800's (about 3000 acres he bought from the Indians). Where I live was part of his original property that my great grandfather purchased at the end of the 1800's. The cemetery and the huge Mansion across the street were all part of the Jemison estate. When I was a child the mansion was an old dilapidated, weed infested eyesore with only the staircase standing. Someone came along a number years ago and rebuilt the house and it has changed hands numerous times. It is now called "Sunnyside Plantation". There is another old house somewhere close to this one-its "Twin"
I believe, not refurbished but the location is kept private to deter onlookers. Both these old homes were originally owned by this family. I had always heard that the cemetery was an old slave cemetery because the "Jemisons" had left the area after the civil war. There are numerous old graves located outside the stone walls and deep into the tangled brush, some identifiable some not. I believe it is on private property. I don't know the name of the owner. My contact has been with Murray Curry from FL who is a direct descendant of some of the Curry's buried behind the stone walls, who originally posted the cemetery on find a grave. My curiosity was whetted because I saw Edith Grace Jemison's grave in there and I have an autographed first edition book of hers! So I surveyed the cemetery and the surounding graves as best I could, did a little research and posted findings to find a grave. There is another old cemetery in the area, across Hwy 21 but I can't locate it related to this one. I would be glad to assist you anyway I can but this is all I have! PS alot of the headstones are not original, they were damaged in a tornado and someone(?) replaced them. The originals are still in there, broken and stacked to the side.-K

Hi Hunter, My name is Shelley and I am currently researching my family tree and I saw where you are related to Alzana Pierce Wades brother, Green Berry Pierce. I am a descendent of Alzana through her daughter Arbelle and granddaughter Lavinia (Milam). I am stuck on Alzana. I was wondering if you have any more history on her family line, such as parents, grandparents and/or other siblings (all I know of is Green Berry). Any leads at all would be fantastic!! Thanks so much for any help you can give me!! Shelley
