The ONLY Edwards Cemetery in Jefferson County, Alabama is the “Edwards Cemetery”.This cemetery is not now, nor was it ever named or called the, “Boling or Boiling – Edwards Cemetery”…
I am posting this information in hopes of clearing up the confusion that has been on-going for several years now, and was created by the disrespectful, inappropriate and irresponsible "Re-Naming" of the Edwards Cemetery, that is located in Jefferson County, Alabama.
A sign posted by the State of Alabama provides the True Name of the cemetery. For Confirmation Of This FACT, please go to Findagrave.com and search under “Edwards”, Jefferson County, Alabama – The site will take you to the cemetery, where 3 pictures of the cemetery are posted – prominently displayed among these pictures is a state sign which provides the cemetery’s name:“Edwards Cemetery”.If you would like additional confirmation, you will find it via the Birmingham Public Library system - where you can also obtain a listing of those interred in the Edwards Cemetery as well (the interment records have not been updated in several years).
The Edwards Cemetery is located on Snow Rogers Road, Gardendale, Jefferson County, Alabama
Additionally, it is believed that all those interred in The Edwards Cemetery are related, and the Boiling / Bolin family members interred there are known to be descendants of Minerva A. Edwards Boiling / Bolin (1849 - 1900/10) – a daughter of Rev., John Edwards (1799 - 1871) and Elizabeth Spradling (1810 - 1897) - who are both interred in the Edwards Cemetery.
It’s hard enough to obtain accurate information re your family histories without someone deciding (for reasons that can only be understood by themselves) to change the true name of anyone or anything.
I hope this helps in clearing up the confusion.However, if you would like additional information re this subject, I will be more than happy to provide what I have & if you want to discuss this issue, I will be more than happy to accommodate that request as well ~ Judy
