Thanks for adding the memorial for Minnie, I must have gotten sidetracked when I was adding Frank's. Are you family?
|Irish||RE: Parsons clan|

Thank you for the transfer of the Parsons family lines. It was very kind of you to do it. And also Paul for taking the pictures for us too. I appreciated all the work you have done.

|Oh look, a chicken!||RE: ...from a kindred spirit.....|
Hi, thanks so much for your kind words! I can sorta understand the copyright and privacy issues, but at the same time it is sad to see that in so many cases there isn't anything, no links, no history, nothing. The idea of a "sterile" memorial is horrifying, really! How sad, it's worse than simply forgetting, it's like an attempt to strip someone of anything that's left. I always wonder about the people I add, and those who's memorials I read, what were they like? What was their favorite food, the best memories, where did they meet their spouses, how did they meet? Did those who were the first settlers feel thrilled to be among to set down roots, were they scared to see the depth of the snow and hear the wolves in the woods? I wonder if those who were raised riding in buggies and wagons did they realize how much the world was changing with the first automobiles and marvel at the idea of flight? Some went from horse and buggy to seeing someone walk on the moon!
Most of the obits I have posted are from defunct newspapers (which is sad it its own way, too) I love reading them, there is nothing like reading breaking news from 100 years ago! I also like trying to glean other info to get a clue about these folks.
Have a great day, and thank you again! I know we're not the only ones out here that think and feel the same way :D
Feel free to transfer it on. I also have been transferring Parsons relatives to another member. I am happy for them to find good homes.

|Paul Sutton Kamalsky||RE: more re Almanzo Parsons|
Jay, I think Stu misrecorded what Gerald had recorded. The stone
is legible enough despite the lichens. I don't think that it is merely
a cenotaph. It shows PARSONS Almanzo 1849-1930 and Mary J
1854-1912. I will email it to you so that you can see why I haven't
uploaded it. You are very welcome! - Paul
|Paul Sutton Kamalsky||RE: Almanzo Parsons|
You're super welcome, Jay. Thanks. Yes, Mary is on the same big
slantback monument. It is just plastered with green algae. I will be
cleaning stones for some time when I return and this will be the
first. I have other Parsons to upload yet and more to photograph.
These are all together in the front (northwest) of the cemetery.
You are very welcome for the photo. I took it at 2:30 and on an
earlier occasion at 1:09. The first one is so dark it is unreadable –
I remember while at the cemetery viewing this headstone because of the name uniqueness that the "C" was my first instinct although it wasn't 100 percent clear, going by the look of the "G" in the August Date on the stone is what ultimately made me go with the "C". Now with your documents, I'm even more confused, lol. Although the documents could be writ/typed by the writer's sound perception of said name (ex: when census people did their rounds here recently, they asked names of household members but did not ask for spelling, writing down what they heard with however they decided to spell it). I myself am curious as to how such a name came about. Hopefully a family member or friend will find the memorial and be able to add some clarity to it!

I have added parents links. Please delete your census record photo. I do not wish for them to be on my memorials. Thank you.

You're right no copyright laws. But the parents have been linked & that's basically the information that is the census records.
