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.
DUE TO NUMEROUS FALSE EDITS AND MAKING EDITS FOR A CONTRIBUTOR AND THEN ANOTHER CONTRIBUTOR SAYING THAT EDIT WAS INCORRECT, VERIFICATION OF EDITS WILL BE REQUIRED OR THAT EDIT REQUEST WILL BE DENIED. IF YOU WANT TO MAKE AN EDIT BE PREPARED TO PROVE IT.

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.

Debbie Kirkland
Kirkland's and Brackin's of Henry County
Don,
I live in the Kirkland's Cross Roads area of Henry & Dale County, Alabama. My husband is a fifth generation farmer in the area. We own the land around the family cemetery, Kirkland Cemetery. I have quite a bit of family history. I'm wondering if you would consider allowing me to be monitor/editor (whatever it is called) of the Kirkland's & Brackin's of Henry County and possibly Dale County? Or perhaps just let me take charge of the Kirkland Cemetery and Concord Baptist Church Cemetery? I personally knew most of the people in these cemeteries who died after 1974. I could really add a lot of info but it is rather cumbersome to send suggestions and it would save you some time. Please let me know either way.
Thank you,
Debbie Kirkland
