|Bio and Links|
I have been researching my family tree since the early 1980's. My genealogical research is concentrated primarily on the descendants of James Maynard Massey & Mary Nations Massey, Thomas Lee Bailey & Elizabeth Lindsey Bailey, Rev. Robert Bailey & Mary "Pollie" Acton, Benjamin Johnson & Lucretia Thomas Johnson, Absalom Martin & Clara McCary Martin, Westly Collum and Elizabeth Cook Collum, Richard James Scoggins (of Blount & Lawrence Counties AL) and too many more to mention.|
I also research destroyed/relocated cemeteries of Jefferson and Shelby Counties, AL.
I am a former president and current member of the Birmingham Genealogical Society, former president and current member of the Family and Friends of Union Hill Cemetery, current director of Patton's Chapel Cemetery, former president and charter member of the Cahaba-Coosa Chapter, ALSSAR, charter member of the Gardendale Historical Society, third vice-president of the Shelby County Historical Society and second vice-president of the Alabama Cemetery Preservation Alliance.
If you use my pictures, either of tombstones or my relatives, please state "Picture courtesy of Scott A. Martin."

Hi Scott. Unfortunately, I do not know that date. Leigh Ann
|Deborah J. Thompson||Hollie Middleton Henderson|
Not sure if you are aware, but there is another findagrave memorial for him with a photo of the tombstone. Thought you might want to see: Find A Grave Memorial# 48164144
He is my 3rd great-grandfather. I haven't been to the gravesite yet. Someone else created the memorial page and maintains it.
I'm looking for more information on his parents: Michael and Martha Massey Henderson.
Thanks for your help.
|Charnell||RE: Transfer of Bean Memorials|
Done. Take good care of them.

Mary was my 3rd great grandmother. I descend through her daughter, Laura.
|Families are Great||Photo of Mary Nations|
Scott: May I use your copy of the photo of Mary Nations and add it to my Ancestry tree? I was thrilled to see it!
|sandi gunter hawkins||George W Scoggins|
he was my 2nd great granddaddy and I believe he is buried in the Lindsey Cemetery with his children. New Hope Church and Cemetery were established years after his death.
|L'eau Noire||Lindsey Cemetery|
Based on the description, I know the general ballpark where you have described this cemetery.
I am trying to pinpoint the location with Lat-Long to be able to get the location marked in Find A Grave.
Fo you happen to know a more pinpoint location for the cemetery?

I think it would be worthwhile submitting him. If you dont, someone may come along, delete your nice memorial that you put some real time into plus finding the photos, write up a hashed up, plagiarized bio and submit it to Famous, like Contributor William Bjornstad did to me:
Not that I'm bitter or anything.
I'll type the addition and send it via edit.
