Cotton and Owens of Al. Graves Vandalized. Need help to located family members
Posted by: Cassandra Skipper (ID *****3153) Date: August 17, 2013 at 18:55:02

I belong to a group called Loving our lost family, friends & neighbors for eternity. As one of the members was going through trying to trace graves she happened upon this a in Millbrook, Alabama. The graves and crypts that have been broken into and vandalized. It is my understanding that is graveyard has failed to be maintained. I have located information on the two names that I could make out on the headstones through census. We are trying to locate family members as to inform them of what has taken place. It appears that those in the area who maybe of authority are passing the buck. I would truly hate to know that something like this was happening with our ancestors. If you can help in any way to locate family members, please let me know, my email address is These are not my family members but they are someone’s family. Thank you in advance. God Bless.
