George Milton Parks
Hey Joel,
Would you please change/edit the Cemetery name for George and Dicy Meadors Parks to Briar Creek Cemetery ~ they are confirmed in BC by visual of their tombstone by Theresa/Thunderbird584 member #47100429. Thanks!

Hey Joel, great to hear from you! Hope all is well in your corner of the world! Any Parks info - as you know - is much appreciated as my great grandmother was Rachel Parks Smith of Jellico.
Keep me posted and have a great summer!
Your Parks cousin : )

Clark relationship
Hello Joel. I met Charlotte Bailey Rierson two years ago online as I was researching the family genealogy. I am a Clark descendant. Charlotte and I have exchanged documents. She provided me your name, as we are cousins to. Robert Clark, Nancy Caroline Clark's father and my great great great grandfather Dr. James Raleigh Clark were brothers. I am looking for any records and photos that exist. Dr. Francis Marion Clark was my great great grandfather and son of Dr. James Raleigh Clark.
James Raleigh & Francis Marion Clark are buried at Bradford cemetery in Shirley Arkansas. Although they were from Olney Illinois, Richland county.
Please email me at if you would be able to share any and all documents, photos that you may have. I will do the same. We have always known about Robert Clark's side of the family but have never met any of his descendants until I met Cousin Charlotte. I manage most of Dr. James Raleigh Clark descendant graves on findagrave if you would like to view or copy the photos. Thank you Joel

Rachel Johnson Parks
Hello Joel,

Do you have information on Rachel Johnson second wife of Uriah Parks, mother of Ambrose b. 1815 Whitley, KY? I am trying to locate her grave. Perhaps she remarried and would have another name.

Samuel Patrick, Scotland
I just want to thank you for supplying photos of the headstone of Samuel Patrick and his wife Catherine Rhind. Samuel was the brother of my 3x great grandmother Christina or Christian Patrick, who was married to Robert Bayne. I have put their headstone on this site as well. This has been a great help. Keep up the great work.
Kindest regards

Lucinda Parks Smiddy
Hello Joel,
Jim was able to find the markers for Lucinda and William for me but the dates on Lucinda are inconsistent with her birth/death certs.. It seems the marker is incorrect and date of birth is May 22, 1964 as you posted; date of death on certificate no 19485 Commonwealth of KY, is July 14 as posted and not 15th as on marker.. Hope all is well with you and yours,
Your distant cousin via Rachel Parks Smith (my gg grandmother)
