Please take a moment and visit my family. Thank you so much.

If I have offended anyone, please let me know and I will remove the memorial of your loved one. If you aren't a part of Find A Grave, you can still contact me through the edit tab of the memorial. I don't mean to offend anyone. All memorials are created out of respect. The purpose of me adding names is because I believe that people should never be forgotten, and also I like to help people who are searching for their ancestors. I am so thankful for Find A Grave because not only have I found many of my ancestors, I have found many related family members alive.

I will be happy to transfer memorials. You MUST state the relationship with your ID number. All RUDE requests will be ignored!

Duplicates - These are errors, and not created on purpose. I search before I create a memorial and after every time. Please bring any errors or duplicates to my attention so I can correct them. If I have created a memorial and you create a duplicate, do not send me a message that the one I created is a dupe and for me to delete. I will not delete any memorials if you created a dupe. Don't create a dupe memorial just because you're related. If you are family, kindly ask for a transfer or you can add photos and send me information to be added and I'll be glad to add it. Please read the FAQ's for this site on creating memorials.

Feel free to use my photos 📷 as long as you give me credit and do not make any money off them.

I've transferred the memorial to you. I am related by marriage only. Do you know where his sister, Permelia Mahan Black is buried?

RE: Clifford Goggins & Arnita Goggins Kelley
When I enter the memorial number, Arnita Goggans Kelley's memorial shows up. But when I search through the cemetery, all I see is the duplicate. Do you have any idea why this is happening? I haven't seen it before.

Another Coosa Co, AL cemetery
Dana, do you locate cemeteries by county? I ask because today I found another Coosa County cemetery that FindAGrave has listed in Tallapoosa county--no surprise, since these are all just a few miles across the county line. I'm always afraid that if I request a merger, you won't be able to find the cemeteries anymore.

This time it's, with a correct map but an incorrect county listed and with no map but the correct county. I'll delete all of my duplicates once the merger is complete.

New Style Baptist Church
I've requested a merge of
New Style Missionary Baptist Church is located in Nixburg, Coosa County, Alabama, though the obituaries imply it's in Alexander City, Tallapoosa County.

I'll take down my duplicate memorials this weekend, once the merge is complete.

Hi, Dana.

I was searching the Internet learning about my paternal great grandparents (Fletcher and Minnie Garrett) and came across your name on a page for Lila Ferguson who was my grandfathers (Jim Garrett) sister. I had not heard the story of Lila having a daughter and was touched. So I guess that means we are distantly related and I'd love to hear from you and learn more from you!

My mom is Jennifer Mae Garrett Hart and she died in 2001 and I see that you maintain the page on this site for her. Thank you.

Thanks Dana. Hope your surgery goes well and I will appreciate that photo whenever you get the time and are recovered. It's pretty hot to go hunting for graves right now! Judy

T Todd has a photo of Tom Burton. Can you fix that? I am hoping you might have the right photo for Talmadge Todd who was the husband of Vera Harper Todd, but this isn't it. This is in the Alexander City Cemetery. Your help appreciated!
