Find A Grave ID


I was born in 1944 in the Center Point Community in Cullman County, Alabama near the small town of Holly Pond Alabama. I now reside in Hartselle, Morgan County, Alabama with my wife Gail Nunnelley Drake. We have 2 married daughters and 2 granddaughters.

I have been gathering family history from other family members for about 12 years and only decided to start researching for myself in April 2017.

I am a rookie at genealogy research. I am thoroughly enjoying my research and membership on Find A Grave.

I have already connected with several members that have been extremely helpful with helping me to learn the Find A Grave system and how to do research. I would like to say thank you to member Debbie Z for her help and she even found that we were distant relatives.

Surnames I'm connected to include: Paternal; Drake, Lambert, Anderson, Williamson, Daniel, Graham, Watts, Turner, Griffith, Powell. Maternal; Stidham (Stiddem, Stedham), Miller, Williams, Cole, Potts, Vines, Steedman, Howard, Cox, VanderCulen, Karin.
