|Bio and Links|
I was born in MS and after living in CA for 43 years my husband and I have returned to Florence to live. I became interested in my family history during the early 1990's. While searching for ancesters in old cemeteries I was saddened to see the neglect and damage to beautiful old headstones and monuments. |
The iron marker in my bio picture is in Greenwood Cemetery, Jackson's oldest cemetery and was made by Pearl River Foundrey owned and operated by a family member in the late 1800's. There are two of these markers in Greenwood Cemetery.
I am happy to photograph headstones and post them to help complete memorials on find a grave. I must give credit and many thanks to my husband, Les and sister, Sue for their help with obtaining burial locations.
My Family names: Parker, Richardson, Winterstein, Switzer, Bell/Beall, Bradley, Dorman. My husbands family names: Davenport, Arnold, Davis, and Stinson.

Ms. Fran, I just came in contact with Edmirl's granddaughter. She and I share the same 4th and 5th great-grandfathers. Small world, eh?
I will be sending you a request to connect Edmirl to his parents on behalf of my cousin.
|Jerry Fair||Underwood Family|
Ms. Fran, I forgot to mention that my cousins, the Underwood's, were very wealthy persons who owned manufacturing plants near New Orleans. One would assume that the surviving family members would have purchased markers, but one never knows.
The Underwoods were also members of the Coast Guard Auxiliary.
|Jerry Fair||Underwood Grave Markers|
Ms. Fran, thank you ever so much for you valiant effort to locate the Underwood graves! They may in fact not have any markers which is not uncommon. I have purchased grave markers for my close relatives that were heretofore buried anonymously. Sadly, I cannot afford to buy them all markers, but rest assure that if I had the money, I most certainly wood.
|Carolyn Nash Hickman||Rosa Bernice Wilson|
You are so wonderful. Thank you for the photoof the marker for Roas Bernice and Freddie Charles Wilson, Jr. I can't begin to say what this means to our family. When I see a newly added relative marker I just get chills.

|Ellen Guillory||RE: Robert Fleming|
Thank you. What you have done is perfect. Since you are much better at this than I. Could you go on my brother's page (William Barton Fleming) and center his picture? I didn't know how to do this.
Thank you so much.
