Bio and Links
Bio Photo I live in Vidalia,Georgia, moving here from Miami in 1967. My parents are Jesse Lem (deceased) and Hope Ann Lashmit Parrish (deceased).

I decided to start the genealogy on my family in December 2007, and have quickly become addicted. I wish I had started earlier when I had family that could help me with names,dates and places.

We are related to STARLING,CROSBY,DYAL and others from Starke and Graham, Bradford County, Florida on my dad's side of the family. All are buried in Antioch Cemetery, Lacrosse, Alachua County, Fl. For information on this cemetery contact Johnny Chapman @

On my mother's side it's LASHMIT, FINE, HANKINS and others from North Carolina, Indiana and Michigan,.

I've always been fascinated with graves and old cemetery's. I enjoy researching family history and adding as much information to a memorial that I can. If I add a memorial, I will make sure in the future that I get a photo of the headstone and also link families together where possible. I've seen to many memorials added that dates are not put in and no family links are added. If you find a memorial that needs to be transferred to you, please request and I'll be glad to do so.

I will on occasion go to the local library and look up obituaries that I need. When I do this, I sometimes capture "others" . If they are already on FAG, I'll contact the owner and request a temporary transfer to add the information and then return it. So don't be alarmed if I contact you, with such a request! I enjoy adding all the information available. I've done several of these in the past....

I am not in this for the amount of memorials I can add, but to make sure everyone is remembered, so future researchers can have somewhere to start.
And families can place flowers at any time.

If you have the time please place a flower on
my daughter, Jessica's memorial.

Jessica Noel Daniels 1981-1997

Please visit the memorial for Courtney Ann Wilkes.
She was murdered while on vacation in Florida with her family. She was a Toombs County High School student.

Her father was Montique "Monty" Byrd, Find A Grave# 107095500 and
her mother was Maxie Emmy Jones Byrd, Find A Grave# 107095596.

Please establish this relationship, for I was unable to get my request processed because of a pending request by another Find A Grave member. Thank you for all your good work.

Kay: Just to let you know I had visited your brother's grave site on 13 July and again today, 9 August 2016. The marker is still not placed at his grave as yet. I'll will run by there again just after Labor Day in September and continue to check up on it for you.

A good rule of thumb on placement time is six months to a year (sometimes) on headstones. I could head back over there, lets say towards the end of the summer and check for you. Id be more than happy to do that for you.

Ma'am I'm perhaps less than a mile from the cemetery that you've listed as the final resting place of Lloyd Howell. I don't mind claiming the request, however; since he has passed so recently he may not at this point in time have his headstone in place. I will see what I can do for you. This being Monday I'll head on over there sometime Saturday or Sunday and get the picture.

Duplicate Memorial
Kay you created a duplicate memorial for Harlow Clark at Dead River Cemetery in Dec 2011. A previous memorial had been created in Oct 2011. Will you please work to have only one memorial.

Thank you so much.
