Please try to verify any information that you want me to add, as I am an absolute stickler for accuracy in my genealogy. I am not like the many people who add things to memorials and trees and do not even check to make sure that it's accurate. Also, please do not add memorials to cemeteries that you are not familiar with. If you have proof that the person is indeed buried there (i.e., old transcriptions, obituaries, etc.) that is acceptable and encouraged. This helps those of us who make it a point to fulfill photo requests and it also is in line with FindAGrave's various policies.Getting the highest amount of memorials is not why I started doing this; being able to provide family members (especially ones that live far away) with the ability to know and see where their ancestors and loved ones are buried is my main goal. I will be happy to transfer any memorials provided that you can prove that you are directly descended from, or that you have a lot of information and photos to add. I will not delete a memorial just so you can create your own, but I will transfer the memorial in question to you given the provisions above. I reserve the right to keep the memorials that are in my own line, so I hope you'll understand.PLEASE do not use chalk, shaving cream, bleach, or anything else to better read the tombstone. Even chalk has chemicals that ruin the delicate tombstones (especially the older ones). Instead, please use the native soil in the cemetery. I can say from experience that this method produces fine results. This method was given to me by a professional.I have no problem with others using the photos that I have taken for use in their family trees. However, it is common courtesy to acknowledge the photographer for their time and effort. I only ask that if you do use the photos that I've taken, you please mention that you found them on FindAGrave and you use this to acknowledge me:© 2017 by Lindsey Bowden on Find A Grave.

Thanks for your message, Lindsey. I wasn't able to find any information on James Haigler after the War Between the States, so it's entirely possible that he died in 1863. I appreciate your looking into this to see if we can get it corrected.

Hi, Lindsey,

I'm researching James M. Haigler. I've found him with his parents Thomas and Lydia and siblings on the 1850 Barbour Co. Census, and again with his father and siblings on the 1860 census.

I've seen sources that show his monther, Lydia's death date as 1853, but I don't think that's the correct year for James M (since he was clearly alive in 1860. There's no headstone photo on his memorial. Did you have another source for his year of death?

Thanks in advance for your assistance,

RE: Wright's Chapel
Lindsey, I am terribly embarrassed. You asked for directions to the Wright's Chapel Cemetery years ago, and I failed to respond. I am so sorry. I pray it is not too late for me to provide some information.

I do not have "directions", per se, but I do have the geocoordinates, which you can enter into a GPS. I hope this will suffice.

Coordinates: N31.62888, W85.37743

I would be willing to plot out a course for you using these coordinates if you desire.

Again, my deepest apologies. I sometimes go long periods of time without checking Find-A-Grave :(

Gallilee Simms Cemetery
You have the above listed cemetety listed as being in Barbour Co. Al. The cemetery is actually in Chambers Co. AL and I belive is not connected to the Galilee Church which is aross the road and was not in existance when the family cemetery was started.

Noticed a post you had about not finding a marriage of Daniel Money & Tennessee Johnson. They were married in Surry County, NC on 14 Jun 1845, marriage bonds book A, page 4164.

While the marriage indexes show the name as Tennessee, the actual marriage bond shows her name as Jennifer and here's a link for you.

Greetings Lindsey!

I am doing some Bowden family research. I am descended through the Pike County Bowdens and I'm trying to link the Barbour County Bowdens. Have you had any more luck on finding a link to Nicholas Bowden's parents?

Please email me directly at
