Bio Photo My mother's search was long and very emotional. My father woke up and saw blood all over my mother's pillow. I asked about here several times as a child, my father would get really emotional, so I stopped asking. My father was in the Air Force at McDill Air Force base in Florida. They put mom on an airplane to fly here to Walter Reed General Hospital where the Presidents used to go. I thank the Air Force for that. Induced labor delivered me 1 month early, she lived 31 more days. She died of leukemia. As I searched for her, I thought that the death certificate would tell me where she was buried. The certificate stamp was covering the location of her burial on the certificate. The cemetery name was not legible due to bad handwriting. All I had to go on was the address 1301 Capital Ave. I assumed that this was in the Capital (D.C.) since she died in D.C. I searched all the cemeteries and funeral homes in D.C. Then I found her father's name in Ft. Green, Florida. C.C. Alderman was his name, I found it via Google maps. There is a road named after Alderman and a Methodist cemetery in Ft. Green. I found out that many (30)Aldermans are buried there. I typed her name and there she was! I called for my son and exclaimed " I found your grandmother!" My son hit a key and there was a photo of the gravestone, best 4th of July of my life! I joined to volunteer to help the next day. I hope I can bring overwhelming joy to others as well! I wanna thank Susanna Parrish-Allan and Jennifer Workman and all the people at find-a-grave.

This message is for Michael or other family members. Ira Mae Bradley was my mother also. Prior to marrying Jack Bradley she was married to my father Frank Whitehead. My name is Louie F. Whitehead, Jr. and I have a sister named Elizabeth Fewer. Apparently you have never known that you had a half brother and sister. I was almost 6 and my sister was 8 when our mother died. We were sent to Mobile, Alabama to live with our father. My email address is

Thank you for adding a picture of the Marker for Roy Moore Wilson & Mary Coble. They are my grandparents. I had not seen that since my grandmothers funeral when I was 8.

thank you SO much for going out and getting the photo for me. I appreciate it so much! On Don's page you uploaded a photo for someone named Clarence Pearson, though, you may want to check and see if you uploaded the right photo to Clarence's page, and if you would, upload the photo of peg and don's marker to his site. Again, thank you so much for getting this photo for me. Peg was my mother's best friend :)

Thank you for going out to photograph Johnnie's grave.

If you wouldn't mind uploading the photo of Ivy's grave, that would be great. Her memorial is here.
