The city does not have a listing of who is buried only who bought the plot and not always that if it was long ago.

I'm sorry all the city has is who bought the plot on this one. Which makes it really difficult for me when trying to make the cemetery accurate. They have a few they have listed but I already have gone through the files and added them.

You ask for photos for David Simpson, Mary Simpson, Riney Simpson, Nancy Alma Simpson Jones, Corrie Simpson Bryson.
I have found the plot according to the City Hall. It has eight plots and is surrounded by a concrete curb. No memorial Stones. I added the picture to David Simpson Memorial.

Alma Simpson Jones
Pioneer Succumbs To Long Illness

Mrs. Alma Simpson Jones succumbed to a prolonged illness at her home Tuesday morning after having been confined to her bed for several months. She had been in ill health the past few years and had suffered a stroke of paralysis last July.

Funeral service was held at the Baptist Church Wednesday afternoon at 4 o’clock with the pastor, Rev. H. M. Weldon, officiating. Burial was in the Albany Cemetery where her parents and other members of her family were buried.

Miss Alma, as she was affectionately known to all long time residents of the community, was a devoted member of the Baptist church since early childhood and was active in all affairs of the church until her health forced her retirement. She was perhaps, better informed in the history of the local Baptist Church than any other person in Albany. She was believed to be the last charter member of her church.

She was born December 6, 1866, the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. D. G. Simpson, who were among the earliest, settlers of this area. She was the oldest of seven children born to the couple, all of whom besides her parents, had preceded her in death. Only surviving relatives is one uncle, H. L. Simpson of Wadley, Ala.; and one nephew, Riney B. Salmon of Phones, Ariz. Who was her benefactor during her long illness.

Pallbearers for the funeral were J. Carter King Sr. , Shaffer Horn, Clyde Jones,
I.M. Chism, N.E. Sherrard and B. F. Stafford.

D. G. Simpson, One Among the Oldest Pioneers of Shackelford County, Passes Away

D. G. Simpson, one of Shackelford county’s oldest pioneers, passed away Monday evening at 2 o’clock, and was buried Tuesday afternoon. The deceased had been in bad health for several months, therefore his passing was not a surprise to his relatives and friends. D. G. Simpson came to Shackelford County something like forty years ago, and settled on the ranch east of town which had been his permanent home all these years. He figured prominently in the early history of Shackelford county. First, he was deputy sheriff for several years. Then he was elected sheriff of the county and held the office for six years. Under his able and brave administration, law and order prevailed. At this time the county was infested with outlaws of the worst sort and prior to this they had done pretty much as they pleased, but when Green Simpson took the oath of office the tables were turned, and it was said of him that he did more to establish law and order in this part of the country than any other one man. When he came into office there were something like twenty counties tied on to Shackelford County for judicial purposes, and thus you can have some conception of the magnitude of his task, but he fulfilled it like a brave officer that he was. He was a native of Alabama, was born and reared there. And when the civil was broke out, he was a lad of some fifteen or sixteen, but he volunteered his services to the Southland, and in just a little while was made captain of his company for bravery. It was said that he was the youngest captain in the Confederate army, and he carried the scars of many a hard fought battle to his grave and his trusty sword that he carried through this awful war is still a relic of his home. He as a noble Southern gentleman of the old school, as true as steel and as brave as a lion. He loved his friends and there was no sacrifice that he would not make in their behalf. He was that splendid type of citizenship for which the Southland is noted. He was a fond husband and loving father, and the entire community mourns his death. His last remains were laid to rest in the Albany Cemetery Tuesday evening. Brother Parker of Rotan officiated at the funeral services. After which the Masonic lodge of
Albany performed the ceremonial rights. The deceased leaves four children, one son, Rhiney Simpson, Misses Alma, Kate and Corrie. The news extends condolence to the bereaved family.

What a catch that is. You can not imagine how many times I have looked at that and never realized that I had misspelled it. This is one of those time where your mind plays tricks on you. Wow! I am wondering now, with my research I have done on here if that is why I could not find her but one place and they must have misspelled it too. The laugh is on me. Thanks for correcting that as I am so curious about her.

Thanks for the correction on Adela. That information was provided by another person. I looked through the photos I have of the cemetery and could not find one for Amado. There are so markers made of cement that are no longer legible so it is possible that he is either unmarked or one that is no longer readable.

RE: Simpson Photo

The best copy/photo I could get is on the memorial page. The portrait belongs to Tom Radney in Alexander City, AL, and is in a cabin/retreat that he owns on the Tallapoosa River. His first cousin has tried unsuccessfully to borrow it to get a good copy.

Hello, I have added a photo of the lower part of the monument erected to honor J.J. Walton and his wife by J.J. Walton Jr. and his siblings. The marker is made of sandstone, and is crumbling. A grant has been secured to aid in replacement of this monument but we are still in need of funds. We also are looking for family. Are you a decendant?
Sincerely, Dorothy Brandner, Eugene Pioneer Cemetery
ps -- I can replace this photo with that of the new monument when it is obtained and photographed.

RE: Photo
My pleasure.

I still have several to get for you at Belvedere - even though my "claims" on them have expired.

I thought I had all the section where they are buried on a USB Flash Drive - but I can't locate it.

Going out of town this weekend; but will see if I can get the photos before I leave. I know exactly where they are all buried.

Have a great day !
