Bio and Links
Bio Photo Born and raised in the (Rye Beat Area) Hamilton, Alabama, State Hwy.17-S, about 1 1/2 miles from these COOPER Cemeteries, located off of Marion County Hwy 22 near Cooper Free Will Baptist Church.
Cooper Cemetery
This Cooper Cemetery was originaly called "JOHNSON GRAVEYARD" in memory of the first burial: Jane Johnson who was buried ca. 1877, where she loved to play.
I am Sec/Tres for the Cooper Cemeteries Perpetual Care Fund. I have kept an updated burial list for these cemeteries now for 20 plus years. The list includes name, dates, parents and spouses if known.
The 3rd Sunday in May is the Memorial Day for these Cemeteries.
I have been researching Family Genealogy for the past 30 Years.

My Families: Rye, Bowling, Harris, Brown, Lockhart, Stacy, Dill, Liles, Jones, Brown, Earnest. Cook, Blount, Stell, Clifton, Sims, Vining, Sims, Ashcraft, Babb, Robertson, Waldrop, James.

My Husband's Families:

Pelton, Kinkead, Poovey, Newman, McDaniel, Sparks, Willeford, Abernathy.
Concering Links, Corrections and Transfer Request:
Please use the "EDIT" on each memorial that way I have the memorial number and the contributor number, it makes it much easier to update, make links or transfer. For a transfer please state your connection to the memorial.

Please DO NOT leave Family Names and Memorial Numbers with a flower or token, PLEASE edit the memorial and I will be more than glad to make the links, Thanks.
Thanks to those contributors who have left flowers or tokens on my memorials. I enjoy seeing and reading them.
Many "THANKS" to Charlotte Bradley Dupree and NativePride for now helping with Find A Grave Memorials.

James Andrew "Jimmy" Rye
Mrs. Kasberg,

I have recently purchased a 5 gallon jug that has been attributed to Jimmy Rye of Hamilton, AL. I was wondering if you had any information or photos of pottery / stoneware that was produced by Jimmy Rye of the Rye Jug Factory and your relationship to his family. I'm very interested in the history of Alabama Pottery and it's relationship to The Military Road or Settlement Road.

Many thanks,

Hello, do you happen to know where Daniel Sylvester Lockhart died in 1947? I can't find him in the Alabama death records. Thanks!

Mary K. Mitchell:
Joyce, yes Mary K. Hallmark Mitchell is indeed my g-g grandmother. Her husband,Francis Marion Mitchell my g-g grandfather is buried at Corinth National Cemetery in Corinth, MS. I have visited his gravesite. I had to prove this for my 3rd bar on my "Daughters of the American Revolution" ribbon. It was for Nimrod Mitchell, buried in SC.

RE: Nancy Holley memorial
Joyce, I really appreciate you making this Cemetery transfer for Nancy Belle Merrell Holley. I have just sent out a F-A-G request for a photo of her grave marker if there is one.
