I cannot seem to open or enlarge the obits that you posted on these two Wilson boys.
I would certainly like to read them and save them to Melvin's and Elmer's pages.
Would you be able to send them to my email?
Thank you for your time and effort to move Findagrave forward. Saving history, one Memorial at a time.

Eliza Wilson consort to Matthew Wilson
Scrappy, I am trying to prove parent child relationship to one of my ancestors, Nancy Ann Wilson, to Matthew Wilson and Eliza Wilson (Elizabeth Taylor Evans). I would appreciate if you could take a Birdseye photo of Eliza Wilson's headstone with as much legibility as possible. The photo currently available is a side view and I would like more of a top view. For clarification, it is of Eliza Wilson consort to Matthew Wilson.died in 1837. It is also cracked.Thank you, Kathy.

WWI Soldiers Lauderdale and Colbert AL
My friend Joel Mize is a member of the Alabama World War One Centennial Committee. I am assisting as a volunteer to honor the WWI Soldiers During the first week of April, 2017 . I have assembled a list of people who served from different sources . One of the spreadsheets (list of names) is one gave me which has your name on it. I am seeking permission from you to use those names in a spreadsheet,which we plan to have at a kick-off meeting at the Florence/Lauderdale Tourism office in McFarland Park, Florence, on Mon. April 3, 2017 at 10:30 a.m.. Would you please contact me at my email address: and let me know if you have an objection to our using those names in a spreadsheet (I plan on crediting you).

RE: re Willam George Denyer
Hi Scrappy

I finally found William George Denyer's death certificate on Ancestry. They had added an "s", Denyers. It was issued in Toronto, York, date of death Sept 23, 1870. I checked the Mount Pleasant Group of Cemeteries records online to see if they had a buriel record but no luck. There is another William Denyer in Prospect Cemetery but his dates are 1853-1924 and was born in Indiana USA so I doubt that they are related.
When I next go to Wingham Cemetery I'll take the death certificate and see if there is any other record they can look at. Unfortunately the certificate doesn't list place of burial.

My brother served in the Navy in WWII. He was from Colbert County. I did not see him listed in your virtual cemeteries. I would be honored if you added him. Thank you for all you do.

Find A Grave Memorial# 5364318
Additional information about Alexander Gray...
The correct photo may be hard to find because of all the extra names that have been added to this memorial.
The headstone is inscribed as "J.M. Gray", and it might have a secondary inscription of "husband of Julia". This is the information shown on the cemetery survey.

Find A Grave Memorial# 5364318
You have attached the wrong headstone photo to Alexander Gray (memorial# 5364318). Would you mind deleting it, and adding the correct one for Alexander (if you have it)? The current photo belongs to Oliver Wilcoxson (memorial# 5391332).

Memorial # 5390734
Do you have any info about child William B Stutts who married Elizabeth Lauderdale? I'm assuming his grave is unknown since he is not listed. Thanks.

I tried to enlarge Ms Beans picture of Mr Johnson and it looks I like stole it from her, which was not my intention at all. Can you delete the small one as it obscures the photo of his tombstone and add her name to the enlarged photo ??
