Our Ancestors deserve to be recognized, their homes, occupations, court houses, even their families were destroyed by the invading northern army from, fill in the blank. They wanted to destroy our history. Lets not give up, just change our tactics.
.................................................
Have you ever wondered where you came from, why are you here, who you are and where are you going?

.................................................
If you are a family member, or not, leave some flowers on the memorials so that others will know that you came by.
................................................
Thank you Sue for helping me clean up some of my kinfolks part in the Generys Gap Cemetery, and planting the roses. I couldn't have did it with out you. (May 2013).

I maybe slow adding to the Memorials, But I won't
quit.

Ellis Hollingsworth
Hi, thank you Bobby for all of your help in tracing our family heritage. My name is Brenda Gail Sparks born Brenda Gail Hollingsworth. I am the oldest daughter of James Ellis Hollingsworth, Jr. His dad was James Ellis Hollingsworth, Sr. the son of Needham Wesley Hollingsworth and Margaret Hollingsworth. James Ellis Hollingsworth, Sr. was married to Rosa Hollingsworth, my grandma and grandpa. My dad was born in Bessemer, Alabama on January 29, 1921 and died October 17, 2010 in Oceanside, Calif. of cardiac arrest. My mother Edna Hollingsworth (Lackey) was born on August 22, 1929 in a home in Munford, Alabama. She is alive and well. Me and my two brothers Terry James Hollingsworth, and Tommy Ellis Hollingsworth were also born in Bessemer. Me: August 28, 1948, Terry: March 29, 1950, and Tommy: June 7, 1951. My two sisters Kimberly Ann and Karen Sue were born in Californis. Kim on January 30, 1960 and Karen on November 3, 1964. Thank you so much for the pictures and the information. The story we have heard about James Ellis Hollingsworth son of Needham Wesley was that he was shot by one of the guys he was playing cards or shooting craps with, because they thought he was going home to get a gun to shoot one of them. As far as I know the case was never looked into. We believe he was murdered. My dad had 4 siblings in age order: Margaret, dad, Wesley Earl, and Clara. All are dead now.

Clifford J Morgan
Thank you for sharing all the information you have gathered on the Morgan/Leffew family line. Hassie Mae Morgan's brother Clifford John was my paternal grandfather. Because Clifford and his wife Mattie Smith both died so young, not sure I could have tracked my father's roots without your help.

My father, Charles Andrew Morgan (1922-1965) was raised by his maternal grandmother. I had very little information about his family and it's been difficult to track because I wasn't even sure about his parents names. Mattie (Smith) Morgan died in 1926, and I've not been able to locate a death certificate for her yet, but I believe they were still living in Roane County, TN.

Anyway, I really did just want to thank you. You've done a tremendous amount of work gathering all the family information. I'm still feeding some of it into Ancestry and working with Ancestry genealogists to document it all. I can't tell you how grateful I am for all your hard work.

Capt Thomas Lee
I am confused about Capt. Thomas Lee. You have him as Thomas Greenbury Lee. I have seen others list him as Thomas Ludwell Lee. I have also seen two different sets of parents. I would think I have different people but the wives are the same in each record. The more I try to figure it out the more confused I seem to get. Any help on clarification would be appreciated. You can email me at punchkat5@gmail.com if you want. Thanks. Kay Williams

Lee Family
I am not a Lee descendant, but my wife was. I have quite a bit of the Lee family genealogy that moved from Tennessee to NE Alabama and will be adding it to FindAGrave soon. Hopefully it will be of use to you or other Lee genealogists.

Hi Bobby,
Some time ago I transfered Lula Flora Agee Lee, 79100063 to you. In updating my family tree, I find that I need to make some changes and add some history in her bio. If you would please transfer her memorial back to me, I will make the corrections and return her memorial back to you.

I am doing quite well and you and your family are doing well, too.
Blessings,
Audrey

Hollingworth
I saw a flower that you left for Henry Hollingsworth at the Henry Hollingsworth Family Burial Grounds in Calhoun County, AL. The note you left says that Henry is the brother to John T Hollingsworth. I am a descendent of John T's and I have not been able to find any information regarding his parents or siblings.

RE: HOLLINGSWORTH
The DAR is very strict and they want me to prove that I am related all the way back to Thomas Lee or other Revolutionary War Veterans. I have to get birth certificates, etc. to prove my connection. I am going to start sending in to counties in AL to get all their birth certificates. . .my Dad, Grandmother, etc. all the way back. As far as you know, are any of our relatives in the DAR? That makes it much simpler. My researcher is also looking for a connection to a Hollingsworth who was in the war. It is all really fascinating and fun! It is a pleasure to meet my 4th cousin!
