Thank you so much for leaving a flower for my great grandmother. You obviously have a kind heart, and I want you to know it's appreciated. Phyllis

Hello Parker!
I was about to leave a token for a Marine that gave his life for us in Imo Jimo when I saw a Flag at half-mast and Parker next to it. I actually stopped everything and came to your page as that is something that my Dad would have left him..although I know you're not a Man (at least I think you're not heh)

Had to stop by and say Hello to you.

My Dads Mother was a Parker, and when she had a son. ALL the "menfolk" (as she put it) wanted her to name him after them, being the wise woman she was, she did just that and named him after ALL of them...hence Parker as his first name :)

You take care! :)

RE: Nancy Josephine (Parker) Elliott
Thanks for responding Sheri. So she did make it on the stroll, that's good.
Tell your Dad that my Parker line runs through Ohio, Kentucky, & Pennsylvania. Some relatives, who are now long gone, have mentioned to me about some Parkers who settled in Virginia. The records I have on hand go back to a James Parker who was born about 1769 in Pennsylvania and died in Brown County, Ohio, on Sep. 27, 1827. He served three, six month tours in the American Revolution and was a prisoner of war for nine weeks in Philadelphia during the British occupation. His son, William Parker (1796-1864), fought in the War of 1812 and later died in Ripley, Ohio. I would love to find their graves and add them to this site along with some info pertaining to their lives.

I am sure we are distantly related...of course we all are if we go back far enough. But we Parkers have a special connection and I am proud to be a part of their family line!

I have so enjoyed writing you and wish you and your family the very best in this life! I will have to add you as a friend on this site and will not forget to pray for my relatives in Michigan! God bless you!

RE: Nancy Josephine (Parker) Elliott
Hi Sheri,

Good morning to you as well.
Though we hardly get snow down here I do remember well shoveling it in New Jersey and Missouri while in the Army. I have never been to Michigan but hope to one day. My wife and I were in Ohio, West Virginia, and Kentucky recently. One of my sisters lives northwest of St. Louis, Missouri and we made a trip up there about five years ago along with my first visit to Illinois.

Did you see my great grandmother on the stroll? I ask that because she is the only one I have requested to be put on there but am not sure if she made it or not? Like you, I am pretty new to Find-A-Grave and still have pics/info to add to some memorials.
You probably already know this but if you click on "Help With Find A Grave", above where you log in, you can then scroll down to "How do I add my loved one's memorial to the online stroll?" Another word for their stroll may be called the Random Walk.

They say now is the time to be in New Orleans with Mardi Gras going on plus all the people coming to the Super Bowl this weekend. Mardi Gras alone brings in people not only from all over the country but the world as well. The local news (we are about an hour drive away) is showing a lot of people having a great time especially those who are here to pull for their team in the Super Bowl.
Traffic must be a nightmare down there! I think I will just stay home and watch it on TV.
Sheri, if you do get the chance to come down here make sure you try various types of seafood. Our seafood is seasoned well but not overspiced like you find in other parts of the country who try to mimic our food. I remember one of the guys I work with mentioning that he went to Las Vegas and the Cajun food on the buffet lines were either too bland or had way too much cayenne pepper. I had to laugh when he told me their blackened catfish was actually burned!

Just realized I made a mistake. Bill and his wife spend their winters (not summers - haha) down here in B.R. I should see him tomorrow morning at one of the Bible Studies we attend together.

Hi Parker!

Of course I love your name since I am related to many Parkers in the mid-west and the northeastern part of the country. Thank you so much for the virtual flower you left on my great grandmother's memorial down here in Baton Rouge. I left a few on some of your relatives as well and enjoy so much a memorial that allows you to read and see into one's past. By the way you have done a great job with your memorials and welcome to Find-A-Grave!

I see you are from around the Detroit area. I have a good friend who is much older than I who spends his summers with his wife in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan (their home state) and their summers down here in Baton Rouge. When I was in the Army one of the guys I knew was from Dearborn. We were stationed together @ Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri. We both loved the Wolverines and always pulled for them especially when they played against Ohio State or Michigan State.
Thanks again Parker. God's best to you and yours!

Hi Parker,

Thank you for the photos of Albert and Ruth Varney.

More stuff
I see that you are related / connected to the Boyce family in Stockbridge. I grew up there and knew several of the Boyce family. I see that you are also photographing graves in the same area as I am. Small world! I just photographed the Disbrow family this week in the Martinsville cemetery. The new Disbrow grave requests are in the same family plot. Would be glad to share / post, etc.

Wirt Boyce
Thank you for the information about Wirt. It has been added. We are good friends with Carol VanDouser at our church. Carol would be a granddaughter of Wirt. Elaine Martin was Carol's mother. My husband's father was good friends with Arlo Wasson at the Farm Bureau office, and my mother went to school with Shirley Wasson.

requesting transfers
When requesting transfers go to the edit at the top of the site and request transfers. Always add relationships and be polite which I am sure you are already. I have added some 85,000 names and some are the same names, this makes it much easier for both of us. Thank you

RE: Inez
You are very welcome. I always enjoy taking photos for military families. When I go for a request I will take a photo of 10 other head stones for every single photo request I receive. I took pictures of 20 head stones today. I did find Stanley Ellis and made a memorial for him, he did not have one. He is right next to Inez.I can transfer it to you if you would like. Thanks.

Choate stone
Thank you for the stone photo and as far as the others, do they already have photos on the memorials? If not, put them on the memorials. If they already have photos, send yours to me and I will give them to the family. they would be thrilled to have them. It was a tragic thing that happened to them. Can you send them email or do you need my snail mail address? Can I pay you for them? Thank you so much for caring.
