Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been doing genealogy since 1979. I co-authored the Morgan County Cemetery books in the 1980's. I have published a book on my Compton, Lynn, and Simpson families. Also several publications for the Morgan County Genealogical Society.

I have been married for 59 years. We have two children and five grandchildren living and one that died at age two years and five great-grandchildren.

I enjoy scrapbooking, cemeteries, photography, genealogy and antique shopping.

If I have entered incorrect information or you have something to add to a memorial, please let me know via the SAC on the memorial. I will be glad to transfer memorials to a member according to FindAGrave guidelines. Send your requests via the SAC on the memorial you want transferred; otherwise I will not transfer.

I love FindAGrave. It is a great way to honor those that are no longer with us and preserve history for future generations.

Please visit baby Zack's memorial and leave him a flower. I miss him so much.

Mary Jane Smith Moore #67591029
This is my husband's maternal grandmother and I would like to know how you acquired the name of Tom Belew as her spouse? According to my mother-in-law (who is now deceased) her mother was married to Luther Lindsey Moore at the time of her death. When Mary Jane Smith died all 7 of her children were farmed out to other family members. To my husband's knowledge his mother never saw her father again. Any help you can give would be much appreciated!!

Thank you,

Debra Cunningham

Thomas Morrow

I am researching the former Superintendents of Education for Morgan County Schools, Decatur, Alabama. I am looking for a picture of Thomas Morrow to display at our Board of Education.

Any assistance you can provide would be appreciated, as I seek to honor Mr. Morrow.
Thank you.

RE: Ocie Ola Kyle
Oh, I may have been just starting out then. Which daughter? Helen Louise Kyle Valles Countz was my mother and the eldest daugther of Ocie. I don't know much about my Aunt Doris. Just that she was Doris Kyle McDonald. They didn't talk to each other.

Helen was the daughter of Veda Grace Romine and Ocie Ola Kyle.

She was born 29 August 1932 in Harvest, Madison, Alabama, USA on and died 6 April 2006 in Birmingham, Jefferson, Alabama, USA

She married Vicente Alfonso Valles and had 3 children, Trinidad, Helen and Nancy (me)

She remarried Victor Erwin Countz and had 1 child, John

Im so sorry but I have just realized that i did not ever send directions to the Ratliff cemetery. I can go there but can't ever remember the names of the roads. Give me a few days to run out there and i will get back with you.

Has an error. This was my grandfather and he was survived by his daughter Helen Countz. Could you please correct the last name of the other daughter who was my mother?
