Wow - so it looks like you were able to locate Matilda Parnell's grave! Matilda is only my great great grandmother and I'm only 42 as people in our line married sort of late and/or had kids sort of late.

Anyway, this is me...

Matilda & William
David Parnell & Savilla Abrams
Melvin Parnell & Opal Ladson
Ronald Parnell & Mary Kay Reiss
Me... Melissa Parnell & Sean McCloud
Our daughter... Samantha McCloud

I'm still looking for documentation on the Parnell family country of origin.

Anna Parnell
I noticed you left a memorial to Anna Parnell saying she was your great Aunt? Well I believe she was mine as well,
Her younger sister Laura Parnell Miller was my Great grandmother. Just wondered if you would like to share info.
I'm trying to get my mothers side of the family linked on Find a grave. Thank you for your time.
Sincerely , Jennifer

I declined your edit for birthdate as I found his death cert which stated 10-22-1869, not the 20th. If you feel that is incorrect and have other verification of your date, please let me know via the edit tab on his memorial. Thanks.

Elmer & Fleda Glan Obits
I have added the full obits that you had sent to the bios for Elmer & Fleda (Proctor) Glan. Do you, by chance, have the actual copy of the obituary from the Herald Review that you could send me? It would be greatly appreciated.

RE: Fry Headstone Photos

I'm not sure Elizabeth is buried with Amos. (She remarried and I have not found the burial site of her second husband.) It could be she chose to be buried with him. His name was John Stevenson.

The family stone mentions Amos, Elizabeth (with death date not on stone), and Ruth. I will post it.

Harvey Roessner
Hi Shari,

There is a stone for Harvey Roessner at Wanda Cemetery, but the death date was never added because he is not buried there--that's why I have his memorial classified as burial unknown. I went ahead and put the picture of the Wanda headstone on just in case anyone was interested in seeing it.

Harvey's obituary stated that he was buried in Scottsdale, Arizona. Unfortunately, the obit did not include the name of the specific cemetery in Scottsdale. I tried to find it so I could add it to his memorial, but didn't have any luck.

If you would ever happen to come across the name of the Arizona cemetery where he is actually buried, please let me know and I'll be happy to add it to his memorial.

Thanks for your interest.

Charles Mathew Petro
Thank you so much for providing this link to my dad. The obit had Charles birth place as Indianapolis, Marion County but he was actually born in Brown County, Indiana. He traveled to Illinois every summer to help family on a farm. He decided to stay, get married and settle down when he met my grandmother Nellie. Aunt Hester's last name of Zane is a new one. We knew she was married to Paul Stiverson and Willis Rodgers, but it looks like Zane came after Rodgers.

Are you related in any way to this line of the Petro clan?
