Bio and Links
Bio Photo GENEALOGY has been in my life for over 50 years. Putting Madison County graves and photos on Findagrave is my personal goal. Findagrave is an awesome database. If you are close kin to anyone whose grave I photographed/memorialized and wish to "manage it" please notify me. I will ask for your relationship so have your genealogy handy. Corrections and/or additions are also appreciated. I also welcome any additional information about infant graves.(i.e. who are/were their parents)
Hoping this site has aided you in your genealogy.:)

Melody, I was recently at Mt Tabor visiting my parents graves and took a photo of a tombstone requested on Find A Grave. However, it appears that you and the requester have both put a memorial for the same person. Your memorial is #61605103 and the other is #88703672. You have the death date incorrectly listed as 1989 and it should be 1939. I can delete my photos if you can merge the memorials. Yours was first. Thanks, Shelia.

RE: Harve Blasingame Randolph Karber
Thank you so much for the information, he didn't use his middle names on anything I found, that's why I wondered. My research is for my granddaughter, she is the ggrandaughter of Harve Karber & Lucy Arcola Dickson (Morgan 1st husband) Karber Duke, the granddaughter of Johnnie Boyd Russell Sr. & Lois "Faye" Nella Karber Russell Clark. Many thanks for your work in the cemeteries in that area, findagrave is such an amazing tool for research. KarenS.

RE: Janine,
Thanks, Melody. I'm a new member of Find A Grave and this was my very first photo! The dark splotches you see on the headstone are not shadows, they're where the marker was still wet from rain that morning. I'll be headed out that way again today or tomorrow so I'll see if I can't get a better image on my second try.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Forrest was a friend of mine and my choir director at Waller High
School when I was a senior in 1949-1950. He taught me a lot about singing and I respected his judgement very much. I visited with Forrest sometime before he pass away. I did not know that he had died for I would have been at this funeral. He also directed our music at the First Baptsit Church in Waller and I sang with that choir. He and Dorothy were more like a brother and sister to me. He loved the Lord and love to sing.
I know God is Blessing you and your probably sing in heaven.

Hi Melody,
Ben Eddie Sirmon #60263168 was my very dear aunt. Her mother was Athna Banks Mize #60263040. Would you please add Aunt Ben as a child? I would love to manage her memorial, if possible. She had no children.

Thank you for you time and for listing her grave.
