Bio Photo Hello,

My name is Paula Jackson. I am the mother of 2 wonderful children and a wife to a great hubby. I love animals (I have 4 cats and a dog), reading, writing stories, playing games, photography and bowling but most of all I love doing research and genealogy work.

I have been doing genealogy research, both for myself and professionally, since 1997. I have been a member of F-A-G for over a year but only recently (April 2011) have had the time and opportunity to become a serious volunteer. I think F-A-G is a wonderful place and my pledge is to help as many people as I can in getting pictures of stones. Even though I live in Owen County, I am willing to go to the counties that surround me which are: Clay, Greene, Monroe and Parke. I spend a lot of time each day putting up memorials, researching at the library and online for information to add to memorials and 2-3 days a week trying to fill photo requests. At times, it gets frustrating but mostly it is rewarding work.

Anyway, I will gladly transfer memorials if they aren't part of my family. Please send me an email with any request you have. My address is I check my email often and will make corrections as soon as I can. One thing I ask if there is an obituary or information that I have added to the memorial, PLEASE be courteuos and leave it there along with credit of me as the one who added it. I spend a lot of hours at the library hand-copying obituaries then typing them up. I also spend a lot of time researching on I really don't like the idea of my hard work being in vain. Thank you! :)

If you have time, please take a moment to visit my memorial for my mother Marjorie Shear. Thank you!!

Also please visit Baby Herschell. This baby has no family to tend to its grave. I found the grave overrun by weeds. My husband and I cleaned up the area and will continue to keep it nice. If you would leave a flower for him/her I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you!

Also if you could leave flowers for Bryan Haltom it would be greatly apprecaited. He was murdred at the age of 18 and the crime is still unsolved. Please read his story. Thank you!

Also, a visit to my memorial for PFC Brett Wood would also be appreciated. This young man died while fighting for our country. Thank you!

Also please visit these famous people whom f-a-g won't give credit to:

1. Cinematographer--Lauron Draper

2. Poet--William Herschell

3. Boxer--Ace Hudkins

4. Actor--Elderidge "Kit" Carson

5. Actor--John David Carson

6. Conductor--Dino Anagnost.

Thank you for your kindness, take care, God Bless You and happy hunting!! :o)

thank you
Just wanted to thank you for standing up to the latest Find A Grave bully - I believe you know who that is. I, too, have been targeted by her and she is just one in a series of like-minded folk. Thank you for being another voice of reason.

RE: Re Oliver N Pryor
Thanks for your message, and for linking. I've found sometimes when I link parents and spouse at the same time, one of them, doesn't come thru??? Anyway, whatever the glitch, thanks much for taking care of it, and for your quick response.

Re Oliver N Pryor
I made an edit in April linking Oliver N Pryor (# 75348450) to his parents, Wilson and Hannah Pryor #'s 119484895 and 119484818). The edit is still pending (not yet posted). There must be some kind of computer glitch. Can you get the parents linked. Thanks. (This might be a duplicate message, if so ignore. My cat strolled across my keyboard and wiped out part of the message.)

I entered an edit last April linking Oliver N Pryor (#75348450) to his parents Wilson and Hannah Pryor (#'s 119484895 and 119484818). The edit is still pending (not yet entered). There must be some kind of computer glitch. Can you get the linkage made. Thanks.

RE: Barbara Burton
hello, I may have asked you this same question before but I need to ask again. how can I remove a comment from my moms page that I find disrespectful?
someone took a "Jab" at me on her page and I don't think it belongs there.

John Richard Laughlin
I am a great-great-grandson of John Richard and Sarah (Smith) Laughlin through their son, James Garten "Gart" Laughlin. If I understand your postings on Find-a-Grave correctly, we are third cousins, once removed. As I understand it, you are a great-great-granddaughter of Drucilla C. (Laughlin) Doorne, a sister of my great-grandfather, and, so, of course, a daughter of John Richard and Sarah (Smith) Laughlin.

First and foremost, I just wanted to introduce myself. Second, and I know this is a long shot, you wouldn't happen to know of any photographs of John Richard and/or Sarah Laughlin, would you, or where they are buried.

I have done considerable research on the Laughlin family and have extensive genealogies on A cousin and I who are Civil War buffs have done considerable research on John Richard, his brothers, James O. and Joseph Hamilton Laughlin, their cousins, John Duncan and Joseph Dunn Laughlin, and other relatives who served in the 27th Indiana Volunteer Infantry, one of the so-called "fighting regiments" of the Union army. I'd love to provide you with any information which you might be lacking and hope you can fill in some holes for me as well.
