Can anyone help me learn about the families of Pate Smith and Will Burnett from Chilton County, Alabama?

I am interested in learning about family members born in and around Union Grove, Jemison, Clanton and surrounding areas. Family members include Elnora, Will and Dora Burnett.and Nobles Smith and Pate and Fate Smith (twins). There are many buried at Union Grove Community Cemetery. Some of the folks buried there were in the tornado of March 21, 1932.

Update:

This location is in Alabama. I am trying to trace back further than we have been before.

    [These messages were left by me today: with an American flag--"Semper Fi, Corporal William L Burnett, semper fi. Rest in peace. Your job is done." and with pink roses--"Your service to your country will not be forgotten. God bless you." NOTE: I do this on findagrave.com whenever I see a military serviceman's grave listing--regardless of the war he/she was in--that shows no flowers or notes. You can, too--just click the "flowers" tab and it opens to a new page where you can pick flowers of your choice--drawings or pictures of real flowers--or other things like memorial ribbons, cute animals,etc--and leave a note.]
