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.

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.

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!

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.

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.
