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

RE: 29647058-Stanfield
Kay, I checked my lists and I did not find this name. I am not familiar with the name of the person who created the memorial. Sorry.

RE: Stanfield Cemetery
Please keep it, I created the problem and I don't keep numbers on memorials I create. I do this because I have the time and I enjoy doing it. I only ask for the return of the memorial because a lot of those I do are in my family line. Janice

Yes it was. It left marks on a lot of people who couldn't seem to get over it.

That same thing has happened to me as well. Find A Grave is having it's problems but don't seem to be working on fixing them. My computer came and checked it out and said my computer was fine; it was a problem on Find A Grave's end. If I knew how to help with the transfers, I would. If you think of a way, let me know.
