I was able to document two more very nice graveshelters in Bremen, Alabama last week — not far from Cold Springs and the Alabama Power Smith Lake dam. These are across the street from Macedonia Baptist but from maps I see that this particular cemetery often goes by Macedonia Baptist cemetery and can be referred to as McKinley’s Chapel Community Cemetery as well.
Two examples of graveshelter architecture here: one of mostly wrought iron, the other from lumber:
This one, for John Jessie Rollo (1.28.1863 – 3.17.1948) and Joe Amy Rollo (4.12.1896 – 1.25.1982). Between his first wife, Sarah Florence Allums Rollo, and Joe Amy, findagrave lists that John Jessie fathered 16 children. Sarah Florence is buried at Little Vine Primitive Baptist Church cemetery in Walker County, Alabama, and while her monument doesn’t have one, that particular cemetery does also have a grave shelter.
Here also: a small flat marker for Ernie W Rollo, Cpl US Army, Korea, 3.27.1932 – 9.2.2012):
This is the graveshelter for the South family, John W (3.20.1875 – 2.8.1959) and Carrie (Caroline) Pinkrey South (2.13.1877 – 12.16.1948):
The rest of the cemetery has a mix of more modern and more traditional monument styles, with some having curbing
And here, the 16 children of John Rollo and his two wives listed:
