RE: Jarrett Menefee
I made the link to his wife's memorial, but I don't whether these 2 cemetery names designate the same cemetery.

Permission to use photos

First I want to thank you for your time and effort in taking and uploading photos to the website. I would like to ask your permission to save the photos to my computer system that you took for for my personal genealogy research and posting to my family tree online. I will give credit to your work. Will you permit me to do that?

I really appreciate this,

Tia Rutledge

Donnie, could you tell me who Andy's parents were please? I have him listed as a brother to Martha 'Chambers' Atchley? Is this correct? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

Flossie Hice #65605529
Hi Donnie:
My computer won't let me send this thru her memorial page. Obit if you wish to add:
Published in the Huntsville Times, Huntsville, AL, Tuesday, Oct. 31, 2000.
Flossie Richard Hice, 89, of Elkmont, died Sunday at her residence. The funeral will be Wednesday at 1 p.m. at Spry Funeral Home in Athens. Burial will be in Poplar Creek Cemetery. Mrs. Hice was a native of Oklahoma, a member of the Cartwright Church of Christ and retired cafeteria manager at Owens Elementary School. Survivors include two sons, Norman B. Hice and Marshall E. Hice, both of Athens; one sister, Eunice r. Morgan of St. Cloud, Fla; six grandchildren, seven great-grandchildren and several nieces and nephews.

Someone sent me corrections on her sisters, Thelma and Eunice, so I thought you might want this.

Eva I. Crawford
Donnie, I added a photo for Mrs. Crawford. There is a marker behind her headstone that shows the date of death. I submitted edits for the date and her middle name, which is Inez. I added you as a friend. We both live in Limestone County. If you ever want to team up and photograph a cemetery, let me know. Her memorial # is 67855704

Error on Page for Matthew H. Roberts

On the find-a-grave memorial page for Matthew H. Roberts (, his son "John Fount Roberts" should now read "John Fount Roberts, Sr.". I have begun maintaining John Fount Roberts, Sr.'s memorial page, and "John Fount Roberts" is incorrectly showing up there as a sibling. Hopefully, adding the ",Sr." suffix to the son's name on the page for Matthew H. Roberts will eliminate this error.

John Fount Roberts, Sr. had a son named John Fount Roberts, Jr., and I will be creating a memorial page for him in the future.

Thanks for your help.

Hello Donnie.

Willie Raby was my grandfather's brother so I am requesting you to transfer his memorial to me. I could add more family members for him. I look forward to hearing from you soon. Many thanks for your understanding.

Ruth Hasten Walsh
RE: Meadows
You are so right. According to family members I interviewed 1998-2000, the full name of the M. Edgar Meadows b. 1909 died 1986 was Morgan Edgar Meadows. He was named for his father Alfred Morgan Meadows whose obits and/or death notices appear below in which the son was referred to as Edgar:

Limestone During World War II, by Faye Axford, p.80
Limestone (Athens, AL) Democrat,: Morgan Meadows, 71, died in the Corinth community and was buried at Isoms Chapel. He was survived by his widow, Annie Isom Meadows, and five sons, Edgar, Luther, Lawrence, Arttis, and Relie; one daughter, Mrs. Jack Praytor; and several grandchildren.

Limestone (Athens, AL) Democrat, Feb. 10, 1944
Alfred Morgan Meadows, 71, died Saturday (Feb. 6) at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Jack Prater, after an illness of more than a year.
Funeral services were conducted by the pastor of Isom's Chapel Church and the remains were interred in the Isom's Chapel Cemetery Monday.
Although born in Tennessee, Mr. Meadow's parents moved to this county when he was a small child and he had resided here ever since.
He was a member of the Methodist church and had reared a large family of children of whom six boys and one daughter survive.
He is also survived by his widow, who was Mary Ann Isom, before her marriage.

Athens (AL) Limestone Democrat, February 10, 1944, p. 3
The many friends of Morgan Meadows will regret to hear of his death. He passed away Sun day after being in bad health for about a year. He is survived by his widow, Mrs. Annie Isom Meadows, and five sons, Edgar, Luther, Lawrence, Arttis and Relie, and one daughter, Mrs. Jack Prayter, and several grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

Dupree Cemetery - Limestone Co, AL
Hi Donnie, I saw that you've added many photos for this cemetery. I've passed it on the way to another cemetery and saw that it was on private property with a locked gate. How did you gain access to it? Is there a house that I can go to and ask permission to enter it? Thanks in advance for your time.

RE: Holt
OK that would be the one with the Confederate Soldier and his wife on Yarbrough Road.
Ruth Hasten Walsh. Well since I only needed 5 minutes I trespassed and got out of there before I got caught. HA!

Ruth descends from these folks tells me this:

1. I now know who owns the property. It is Edsel Howard & wife Carolyn, 8762 Hwy 72 W Madison, Al.

2. Attorney General of Alabama says they have to protect the little cemetery and allow anyone (public) free access to the cemetery. They also advised me to call LCA sheriff. I did. Dept. Sheriff Stan McNatt is going to see what he can do. Heíll get back to me in a couple of days. He thought I should also call the Historical Society. Told him Iíd call Archives and they werenít helpful, just told me to call Revenue to get name of owner, which is what attorney generalís office did.
