Bio and Links
I was born and raised in the Carrville Tallassee area and have lived in Reeltown for the past 47 years and ever since someone told me about Find A Grave a little over two years ago, which helped me find a lot of my relatives I decided that I needed to try to help out a little. A lot of work has been done on Rose Hill Cemetery and Carrville Cemetery, but I had this desire to make sure everyone was on Find A Grave. I talked with Madonna Linville at the funeral home and she has so graciously given me permission to use some of her work, so along with her work and my walking all of the cemeteries I may be able to achieve my goal. I also use Ancestry to help me find someone's parents or children so that I can connect them. I hope that everyone will forgive me for all the edits that I send them but with their help and understanding I think we will be able to connect and help others who are looking for their relatives. I check and double check when I enter a memorial number to make sure it comes up with the right person, but there is always a chance for errors so if you find that I have made an error please send me a message so that I may fix it. I spend as much time as possible at the two cemeteries whenever the weather and my other responsibilities permit. This is a slow process because I have to clean the grass off the flat headstones sometimes get a good photo. My father moved from Red Level Alabama to work in the cotton mill and I have found a lot of people buried in our cemeteries that have family in Red Level and other surrounding counties. So please bear with me on all of the edits and work with me as best you can in connecting our cemeteries.
Thank you.

RE: Rose Hill
I only have time on my hands and this is a very small town. I'm going to the city to look at maps and plot locations some time this week. I have a friend that knows this graveyard very well and she's helping me. Thanks for letting me know and reaching out to me.
