You are MOST welcome! It is gratifying to know that somebody out there appreciates the photos. We really want to help families find their loved ones. It means a lot to hear from you!

Will take my good camera next time and post better pictures.
|Lori Hager||Ellen Smith Stinnette|
I checked a book of interments for Western Chapel UM Church Cemetery and could find only two Stinnettes listed. One is for William Stinnette and the other is only "Stinnette" - no first name. When I was at the cemetery today I photographed the gravestone but I didn't see any writing on it at all. The book is rather old so maybe the "Stinnette" had been replaced with a new blank stone since then.
The books lists the interments in order of location. The "Stinnette" gravestone is between John Smith and William Stinnette. I don't know if this is Ellen Smith Stinnette. There are no other Stinnettes in the cemetery. If you think the blank stone belongs to Ellen Stinnette, I would be glad to upload it for you.

It's my pleasure! You're very welcome.
The Snelson's have a lovely resting place; their space in the cemetery seems prominent. I also took photos of 5 other family members within the same plot: Mary Elizabeth, Ethel Naoma. The others are Ethel Snelson Tinsley, Marcia Snelson Pearce, and Ted E Tinsley. You can see their location in the photo that's taken from an angle. Ted is in the bottom left corner.
I did a quick search and couldn't locate any memorial for the Tinsleys in FindaGrave. Happy to share/post, but I am very new and haven't attempted to add anyone myself, yet.

Not a problem. Thank you for you blessing, if God was remembered more this Nation would not be in the mess it is.
I am adding graves in the cemeteries around the house here as I get time. I hope to complete the Station Cemetery this week. I did Walnut Methodist church cemetery a couple weeks ago. I am now looking for the location of the old Barnard cemetery, no one seems to know where at Walnut it is. It was used before the Methodist cemetery, early 1800 to mid 1800s.

You are most welcome. The NC Death Certificate List shows them both at Alexander Chapel.
I intend to keep an eye out for them, but I have yet to begin a systemic mapping of the entire cemetery. I've concentrated so far on the older graves where the sun has to be just right to produce a photograph where the inscription can be read. Marble is not holding up well as time goes by, and a photographic record may soon be all for descendents to go on.
|memorial_forest||James and Viana Bridwell request|
I have yet to see markers for any Bridwells in Alexander Chapel's cemetery.
I would estimate that almost 1/3 of the graves there have no markers at all, or else just an uninscribed field stone to mark them.
They may not have markers to identify their graves.
