Bio and Links
Bio Photo It is amazing how much this site has grown over the past few years. Thank you to the many, many volunteers who have created the countless number of memorials to this site. Their work has made this site an excellent tool for genealogy researchers.

For now, I am searching for and adding my kin that I know are missing. I include my kinship to my virtual flowers so that other relatives can contact me.

The "Virtual Cemetery" is the greatest tool to save the memorials of interest. I have created my own for each branch I have found of my family past.

The Family Names that I am researching are:
1) Lindsey, Cummins, Wilson, Peeler (Attala Co. and Oktibbeha Co. MS);
2) Seeger (AZ), Trimm, Tomlin (Fayette/Lamar Co Ala);
3) Burns, Shelton, Goodman (Lamar & Pickens Co ALA and Lowndes Co MS);
4)Williams, (Harrison Co MS), Cartrett (SC & Honey Island, Texas), Powell (Fla) Valdez,(LA Calif).
5) I also have a great interest in the local history of Lowndes County. I have found the Rueben C Littleton family from Tenn - early settlers of the now vanished Townships of Colbert / Barton / Vinton, Lowndes Co Miss. (Present day Clay County) to be of great interest. Vinton Cemetery and Columbus Air Force Cemetery are where many of the Littleton family and kin rest.

I live in Columbus, Lowndes Co, MS.
Please feel free to contact me regarding any of my family names or memorials that I have created.

Crestwood Cemetery Request
I am a volunteer and attempted to locate the grave you listed at Crestwood Cemetery in Gadsden Alabama. I was told it would cost me $20 per grave that I requested the location of. But, It would be free to family members. If you would be willing to call them and request the location yourself and message me the information, I would be happy to get the photo for you. I already have a map of the cemetery.
Thank You-

RE: Allen G Hix
His Memorial says Center Ridge Cemetery Maud, TX.
He is buried in Read Hill Cemetery New Boston, TX.
I found his marker by accident looking for someone else. He was not listed in the files at Center Ridge. You need to change his memorial to Read Hill. I'm glad I could help. God Bless

RE: photo - WOW That was quick!!
Yes, I was on my way to the cemetery (just a mile from my house) to photograph another request so I checked to see if there were anymore for the cemetery. BTW, next to Frank is the grave of Mary Ethel Valdez (1878-1965). Is this a second wife, I see that the spouse listed for Frank died in 1938? I created a memorial for her, but have not uploaded the photos for the other graves I photographed that day. Let me know so I can link them if necessary.
