Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'd first of all like to thank all of my fellow FindAGrave friends for your submittals on upgrading my memorials; the addition of dates, family member links, biographies and the like continue to make FindAGrave a "Go-To" site for finding family information. For all your efforts I am indeed grateful.

I've recently started adding Geotags/GPS coordinates using a GARMIN Montana 680t; I won't guarantee the absolute accuracy but the coordinates should get you in the vicinity and very close to the referenced memorial. I do double check each entry on my computer to ensure the entered coordinates are indeed in the correct cemetery and not "half way around the world".

I've been into this genealogy thing for quite a number of years, but seriously only recently upon retirement and the internet. With my grandfather and father both being photographers, photographing cemeteries so others may fill in their family history is only a natural for me. Originally from Bakersfield/Maricopa California, I now reside in Huntsville, AL, and am doing mostly Madison and Lincoln County Cemeteries along with others in the surrounding area. If you find errors or if you'd like to add or change information let me know - I'm accommodating.

The main families I'm researching include Allen, Banta, Blodget, Crites, Jewett, Meriwether, Macmurdo, McCracken, Overton, Renfro, & Trimble on my side of the family, and Blaylock, Dean, Hill, Howard, King, McElyea, and Posey on my wife's side.

One of my other hobbies is collecting automobile pictures - that's a 1949 Buick Roadmaster Convertible.

Thanks for the information. If this is your family and you would like the memorial please let me know. In my search for my family in a cemetery I am always looking for our service men and women. They deserve our respect and honor. Thanks again.

Edits on FAG
You know it makes it so difficult with the people doing edits and corrections because there is no reference to the edits or links I leave that way, I end up having to go back to my family tree and look them up to find the connections to Find A Grave and the ID numbers to try to figure out what was going on. Just one of the hang ups of Find A Grave

RE: Brazelton
Not sure if this helps has been a while but I receivd this message on the Brazeltons. I have worked on so many and just found this info might help before I go wading thru all of it again! This message you can view on my profile page if that helps, I believe there were some dups.

Brazelton Graves
The Brazelton Family Graves are located in Hampton Cove Cemetery.
The older section of the cemetery is where the graves are located.
This section may have been referred by another name, but it is located in Hampton Cove Cemetery with no sign to indicate otherwise.
I visit this cemetery often and have even asked the office about the older section.
I was told that it is under the management of Hampton Cove Cemetery.
