123164256 - I was walking the rows at Elmwood and photographed a grave marker for her. I noticed you had uploaded a photo of a bare patch of ground to this memorial. Since I found her marker, I think you might want to delete the photo you uploaded.

RE: Burgess Cemetery
You're welcome, after transferring some family memorials to another contributor I remembered this family plot and thought they belonged with an interested family member as well.

RE: R P Roberts
I'll email you the Burgess Cemetery listing from " Talladega County, Alabama Tombstone Inscriptions of All Known Cemeteries 1700's to 1987", Vol. I, c. 1989 by Joseph and Frances Upchurch. Copies of this are in the genealogy research rooms at the Talladega and Sylacauga public libraries, and are an invaluable reference. Cemeteries are listed in alphabetical order, with a glossary index of all interments in the county by surname if the cemetery is unknown. Although I didn't create the Burgess Cemetery, nor enter the GPS coordinates for it, the Upchurch directions to it match up with the map location-in the Talladega National Forest near Garing Creek off of Union T. Road.

Appreciate your volume of work, over 1,150 volunteer photos is outstanding selfless service in the ancestry quest !

Thank you for all you do and the picture of the gravestone of Margaret M. Hendrick. This helps so much sorting out my genealogy.

Dave, I hope you don't mind but I copied your photo from Wesley E. Davis' memorial page to his wife's page.
