Bio and Links
Bio Photo Feel free to use any of my grave marker photos any way that you want to, as few (if any) of them have any artistic value which would be covered by the intent of the Copyright clause in the Constitution.

If I created a site, and you want to make any change to the site, feel free to ask. If I created a memorial for a living person, I will be glad to remove it if requested. I like to make natural pictures with the shadows and background telling a story, and letting the hillside elevation show in the view, not blocking out everything except a very tight square around the face of the gravestone. Best advice I can give rookies doing findagrave work--before you volunteer to do a photo, check and see if the requester just created the memorial then immediately requested a photo. Often folks are just guessing and if the cemetery is showing photos for most memorials, you will likely waste your time looking. I try to accommodate reasonable requests. I am just a contributor here, a volunteer. Please notify me of any mistakes you find. I would like to make corrections if brought to my attention. I will gladly add missing family links or bio if you notify me. If you don't want to add family links and etc. then please offer (on your profile) to transfer the sites to someone who will! (One guy with a million memorials in his fiefdom, just says I will not do any transfers, that is what virtual cemeteries are for. He should follow the Findagrave rule. Which is, quoted from Findagrave: If the memorial in question is a direct relative (within four generations-siblings, parents, grandparents, and great-grandparents) to you, and the original submitter is not family, then your wishes supersede theirs under our "Family First" policy. If they refuse to transfer your relative to you, contact the administration and we will work on it for you.) I will be more than happy to transfer your family members to you--please respectfully maintain the sites once you get them. Why are some contributors allowed to have zero contact information?!? If you are requesting photos, you should be required to have contact info in case more information is needed or the cemetery is trying to contact relatives of the deceased. Members with no contact info are like a rock for a gravestone. How useful would Find a Grave be if it were just a lot of pictures of rocks? And if you manage memorials with no picture and wrong/missing names, no links, and incorrect dates, don't expect me to add a picture and wait for you to correct the mess you have created. I am here to follow the rules, and please let me know if I am missing any details in the rules so I can improve my find a grave performance! I am not perfect but I do work towards it! You help me do a better job here, and I promise not to create another one of those virtual cemeteries of imaginary friends! Thanks for dropping in!

* Behold and see as you pass by
* As you are now, so once was I;
* As I am now, so you will beó
* Prepare for death and follow me.
* To follow you I'm not content
* Until I see which way you went.

RE: Norma Launders
You are welcome. Since 1995 I have collected thousands of obituaries of extended relatives and their loved ones. They help me identify and track "lost" family members.

RE: Leon Walker
Thanks for the transfer. No one knew where he was buried or if he was even still alive. Seemed to have lost contact with everyone after his father died. We only heard recently at a family funeral that he had moved to North Carolina.
God Bless,

RE: Lucy Landers
Years ago (late 1990's and early 2000's) when I was working on this branch of my family tree, I corresponded with someone who walked the cemetery and changed dates as necessary on a previous cemetery enumeration that can now be found at At the time digital cameras were not readily available so I never received photos of the tombstones that interested me. There were too many.

I am distantly related to many many people buried in McBee Cemetery. Most, if not all, the Landers and some of the McBee's buried there are desc. of James Nelson and his wife Mildred Brawner. One of the Nelson daughters married a Landers, another married a Browning -- I desc. from the one who married Browning -- both had issue found in Benton now Calhoun co., Al. It is actually more convoluted; but suffice it to say I'm distantly double and tripple kin to some of the folks in McBee Cemetery.

Sometimes the infor I have is incorrect; but, I do strive to collect accurate data. This time my intel was good. My personal email is if you need addl infor.
