Local historian puts faces to the names on tombstones

Posted: Friday, September 7, 2012 4:50 pm

For over one hundred years, Memory Hill has been the final earthly resting place of many of Albertville’s citizens. 

Originally the cemetery had been known as the Garrard family cemetery, occupying the hill in the oldest part of the cemetery. Later it became known as the East End Cemetery to differentiate it from the West End Cemetery, now known as the Old Albertville City Cemetery.

    I really enjoyed reading this article and learning some of the history of Albertville and it's former citizens.THANK YOU for sharing this information with us who otherwise would not have known it. It is wonderful that there are still a few still among us that can recall the stories to share with us. It is a SHAME that the desecration of these graves was the reason I had to hear of these many wonderful people as those people would never even had a thought to do this type vandalism and like most of us we too can not understand it. These people should come forth and admit to this crime and help in the repair and cost. I bought my 7 month old son a dozen roses for his first birthday and placed them on his grave-less than one hour later the roses were gone!! What kind of t&^% would steal roses from a deceased 7 MONTH OLD BABY and give them to someone like they really cared enough to buy that person roses. A few people knew who stole the roses but would never tell me who it was to keep ME out of jail. The one's who did this in Albertville fall in the same category as those who stole the roses from my son's grave- I CAN TELL THEY HAVE'NT HAD THE H#@% BEAT OUT OF THEM LATELY.
