    1. ([ALMOBILE])Wiatts in Alabama
    2. Fontaine Wiatt
    3. Good evening, I am trying to find the obits of Wiatts in Alabama. There are a handful. My priority no 1 is Thelma Cecile Dodge Wiatt, died 12 Oct 2006. Here are the first two sentences of her obit. Thelma Cecile Dodge Wiatt - a native and lifelong resident of Mobile, AL, died Thursday, October 12, 2006 at a local hospital. She was a long time member of Spanish Fort Presbyterian Church and a current member of Northminister Presbyterian Church in Chickasaw. Does anyone have access for the full obit? Priority no 2 would be Diane Cecile Wiatt, aka Diane Rich, aka Diane Burr. Her dates are August 10, 1941 - August 6, 2009. I am not sure if her obit was published in Alabama. Thank you, William Wiatt in Cincinnati

    1. ([ALMOBILE])Memorial Day
    2. Richard Berkheiser
    3. Hi everyone! Sorry to start another thread of messages so close to a Surname Shout Out but with the lists being down the first part of the year it threw my scheduling off. Hope you don't mind... With this being the Memorial Day Weekend, I thought it would it be interesting to post one ancestor we have in our family trees who served in one of the many wars and battles we fought in US History. Obviously it has to be an ancestor from this county. :) Give a brief biography of that person including the unit and war he or she was in, a POW, injuries, plus the usual genealogical stuff. Thanks in advance and have a safe weekend! Rick B Admin
