Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am retired from a multi-national company and I enjoy history. I am a trustee of the Escambia County Historical Society and as such am charged with updating cemetery records for the county and the Alabama Historical Registry.

My interest in Find-A-Grave is purely one of preserving the history of all cemeteries in the coastal region of Alabama and Panhandle Florida for the sole purpose of getting those cemeteries on the historical registry. I am not a genealogist and make no claim to it, nor am I a professional photographer, although I do receive a certain gratification in photographing headstones and updating cemetery records, as well as helping others to locate lost relatives.

I have created a few memorials, but I do not seek numbers. With that in mind, if you see a memorial that was created by me and it holds special interest for you, I will gladly transfer it to your care but I ask that you make allowances and please do not request in bulk.

S C Beasley #61891291

Thank you for creating all of the memorials and the work you have done on this project. I appreciate your time and efforts as I have recently been researching my family history and these memorials have been a big help. I have sent in several edit requests to establish connections and add minor details but this one is a bit confusing.

S.C. Beasley was my 2nd great grandfather. I knew his son Ransom as my great grandfather when I was a child. I know from several records that S.C. is Stephen Beasley, but several census records list his middle initial as "B", not "C". I have not found any records listing a middle initial of "C".

My great grandfather's name was Ransom B. Beasley. We don't know what the B. is for but other than the gravestone, is there a source for the C as a middle initial?

This appears to be the 3rd gravestone in my family with an error in the name of the decedent. Or could what appears to be a "C" on the gravestone have actually been a "B" instead?

Thanks for any feedback you can provide.

Best regards,

Hartie King
I am researching my grandmothers side. I notice you have her linked under Hartie Hall and Rufus King. The other two siblings are missing

Alexander King (also burried in the Hall King Cemetery) 1915-1947

I was told he got into an argument with a man at a bar or leaving a bar and the man ran over him and killed him with his car.

Edna Pearl "Sweetie" Stinson 1912-2007

I am trying to find more information on their mother last name Morris. That's all the info I have.

Also their dad parents (Rufus Franklin King). I found he had two brothers Wiley King buried at the Hall Cemetery (shot and killed) and Joseph King. I found their info where they all resided together and that's it.

Elizabeth Odom
The marker for Elizabeth Odom in Judson Indian Cemetery appears to have another inscription below hers. Do you know have any idea what it it?
Thanks for your help.

Bird/Byrd Family
Thank you so much for your dedication in recording cemeterys in your area. I am so grateful for the find of the Bird family. My family moved from the area in the 60's and it has been hard to find family history. Thank you for such a treasure!

Thank you SO much for taking the time to visit and take the picture. I wa 18 when i started working and she was my first supervisor. We worked together about 15 years. We called her Marie. Super sweet, a little dingy, but that's what we all loved about her. Thank you again. I really appreciate you!

Take Care

Thanks for your interest and suggestion. I don't understand how so many of the same entries occurred. All but the one with bio. should be deleted. Hugh

Hi, I see that you have a memorial for Lillie Mae Smith in Alabama, I was wondering if you know anything about this, or if it was just a memorial. Thanks for your time
