Bio and Links
I am retired. I have been doing genealogical research on my family lines for about 20 years. For the past few years I've put my research on the "back burner" but now that I've retired, I'm back into it. I enjoy going through cemeteries and each headstone tells only a very short history of that person's life. I now get to do several of my favorite hobbies, all at the same time, history, genealogy research, photography, walking through cemeteries, and motorcycle riding.
Not all of the headstones I list are family lines. If you find a correction or have additional information, just let me know.
If you have any ATWELL'S and transfer them to me, I'll take good care of them, but I will not transfer any ATWELL'S.
In the future, please use the change buttons that FAG has provided. I do check these to see if they are correct, so if it seems to be in error, I will decline them.
I will not link unknown burials.

I've started putting G.P.S. locations on some memorials. The accuracy is supposed to be within 16 feet, so this should put you in the close proximity of the memorial. Not too bad for satellites 12,600 miles in space.

Emanuel J Efurd 1858-1916 correction
Thanks for your contribution. I have a correction that I hope you will make. It is for Emanuel J Efurd 1858-1916. You have him as the son of Wm T Efurd, however, Wm T was his uncle, not his father. Emanuel's father was Thomas C Efurd and his mother was Elizabeth Herring. The siblings you have listed for Emanuel are, in fact, his cousins.

Thank you in advance.

Cleter Gamble Deese
I am the granddaughter of Cleter Deese; however, I have been unable to gather much info about her or her Gamble/McKissack families. When visiting AL, I did obtain a copy of her marriage license and death certificate and visited her grave site. Would love to hear of her parents, siblings, etc. I have been in touch with the Deese family, so do have some info about them.

Mr. Atwell please transfer the maintenace of Mrs. Money's memorial. She is my aunt on my mother's side, Johnnie Wilson Whiddon. Her father, Wallace Harrison Wilson was my grandfather. Her mother Lela Mae Henderson was killed when they were young. Her husband was Henry David Money.

Thank you for your consideration.

If you would prefer the memorial to show you as the original poster, if you transfer yours to me, I will add the linkages and delete the one I posted.

Memorial # 157425213 is a duplicate of # 157254427 which I manage, and has all the linkages in place.

Wm. Atwell
Dear Mr. Atwell,
Is it possible that Wm. Atwell and William Green Atwell (born 1834 /died 1902) could be the same person? The parents of William Green Atwell are
Beinamin Atwell and Susanna (Ervin) Atwell
Thank you, Rene (Atwell+Williams) Pavelchak

Thank you for all you do! I am curious about the church records for the cemetery. I found my Grandfathers headstone at this church, (J BF Smith)and a few other Smiths, did the church keep birth records? where would they go? or how can we access any. Trying to find out who my Great Grandfathers Father was and since there are no birth records for the county, I was hoping to find maybe a family plot.
I am trying to find the grave of my Great Grandfather Zion Smith 1845-1910

William W Pugh Memorial# 141531630
First Thank You for your time and efforts on the Find A Grave memorials. It is greatly appreciated.You have helped locate many family members. On this particular Memorial:
Would you be able to identify this information?
Marital Status: Married
Spouse's Name: Eugene Pugh
Father's Name: Jim Pugh
Mother's Name: Eugene Reeves
Mother's Birthplace: Alabama
GS Film number: 1908534 , Reference ID: cn 20473
Does GS mean government service or what?

This is my MaternalGreat Grandfather, But our family says his mother was a Sarah ULN, Possibly Cox, and his father was a James T Pugh. His wife is Eugene Reeves-Pugh.
Your notes have his wife and mother with the same name of Eugene, But you also have his Spouse as:
Eugenia Reeves Pugh (1861 - 1942)
This s/b correct. As the headstone shows.

Would you know anything specific about this family or is this just information that has been given to you? Not complaining, just trying to find out information.
Thank You, T L Thompson-Gibbons
