|deborah miles||Lipscomb Cemetery|
THanks so much for searching for my Lipscombs and for your effort in trying to find them via Red Stone Arsenal. Let me know what you find out.
On the Arsenal? No way!!! What do they call it? And is it near the area they used to call Pond Beat? My husband's mother descended from the Lipscombs and Wilsons, they lived at Pond Beat very briefly-many years ago.
I have some of the photos from the private propety that I asked about. Someobe else had posted them, but only 4. From the looks of the graveyard, it looks like there are several out there. I'll ask my husband and see if he remembers the dentist's name, if not his son will.
Thanks for telling me about the cemetery on the Arsenal. I might have never known!! And thanks in advance for the photos!
Hi Aaron. Do you know the family name to contact to get an appointment to photograph and view the Lipscomb graves? My husband's ancestors are there and since it is not part of the actual Lipscomb cemetery, the property is privately owned and you have to call ahead to schedule a time to go there. He told me once that the property owner is a dentist in Arab, but now he doesn't remember the name. He tells me there are more than the 4 Lipscomb's buried there as well. Thanks Donna
|Dennis Simpson||RE: Dickson Cemetery RSA|
Thank you Aaron for you kindness. There are several family cemeteries in Madison County, Alabama. Beginning with Redstone Arsenal are:
1. John Simpson Family Cemetery
2. Dickson-Rankin Cemetery
3. Matkin Cemetery
4. Jordan Cemetery
5. Tate Cemetery
There are other cemeteries outside Redstone Arsenal, but I don't want to overwhelm you with that request. The surnames I have are Evans, Nash, Harbin, Preston, and Norman, most of whom settled in the Hurricane Valley. Scattered throughout Madison County. The one I am most interested in obtaining are the McLeod family who like the Simpson settled near Whitesburg.
In Limestone County the surnames include: Adams, Dewoody, Redus, and Tanner.
I would like to thank you for your wonderful service to the people whose ancestors settled in that area. Dennis

Thank you so much for the photo of Claudi Madewell's grave site. What was the actual picture you took? It looked like a photo frame.
Thank you for the photo of the graves who are buried on each side of him also. They are related to him.
