Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born in St. Mary's Hospital in Roswell, Chaves County, New Mexico January 9, 1964 to Dudley Parks and Margaret Mae Underwood. I have 5 siblings, Linda Marie "Cole" Hernes, Judy Katherine "Cole" Shanks, Dale Eugene Parks, David Glen Parks and my twin Paul Ray Parks. I graduated from Goddard High in 1982, and got my Electronics degree from TVI (now CNM) in Albuquerque, NM in 1993. I worked for Intel Corporation from July 5, 1994 to July 30, 2007. I have a significant other who's name is Lloyd Michael Romero, born in Roswell, NM August 12, 1960 to Lloyd Romero and Dolores Garcia. We have been together since September 12, 1985 (28 years and counting).
One of my proudest moments to date is when I finished writing my novel "Magic Gifted - The Rise of a New Generation" which can be found on It took me about 1 1/2 years to write and it was first published December 3, 2014.
I am a Harry Potter fan but nowhere near that of how much Lloyd is. My favorite movies are Harry Potter (all to date), Indianna Jones Trilogy, Star Wars Trilogy (The original), The Wizard of Oz and Brokeback Mountain.
I have been researching our family lineage using under the family tree title "GaryWayneParks".
I would like to say thank you to everyone who has left and/or will leave tributes to those in my family who have passed. It means so much to me and mine. God be with you and your's.

Mary "Callie" Caldonia Eakin Wammack
Hi Gary,
Did your father have a brother named Seth Virgil Wammack ? I know Seth was born in Melbourne, Izard, Arkansas and I believe his mother was Mary "Callie" Caldonia (Eakin) Wommack.
I could not email you. Computer problems. But if I can be of help, please contact me at

RE: Underwood family
Hi Gary, thanks for getting back with me. I did find out that Henry died in Crittenden, Arkansas but no burial records yet. He died in 1938 which is why emma states she is widowed in 1940. Have no idea of is parents are. Thank you Connie

Hello my name is Connie Lawson. I am doing a tree for my daughter shawnee r hughes. Her grandparents were arlet and dorthory (Charlene) underwood hughes. Having lots of problems really fiding info on Charlene parents which is henry and emma ? Underwood. Both states in the 1930 cenus in Poinsett Arkansas they were born in Mississippi. The chidren are Charlene, james t, ruth, estell, earl, mattie, and julious. They moved around a lot for work. Earl moved to California. Found his grave but no other information. My daughter grandma passed in 2005. She didn't leave behind much information on her family. I know at one time they lived in new Mexico, Texas, and Missouri then Arkansas again. Hope you can help. Thank you and blessings Connie Lawson.

Just dropped by to say hello
Hi, Gary. I'm your 4th cousin. My great grandmother was Frances Chastain Hickerson. You and I share the same 3x great grandparents, Joseph Carlton Chastain and Elizabeth Nicholson. I descend from their son, Edward James Chastain (Frances' father) and I was able to determine that you descend from Joseph and Elizabeth's son, Madison Chastain. I see on your profile that you have a family tree on If you are interested, check out my tree there, the Hickerson-Martin Family tree. I have a lot of information about Frances and her father, James Chastain. Frances is buried in Pawhuska, OK. I've been to see her grave. But, I have never been able to determine where her parents, James and Louisa, are buried. They're probably somewhere in Arkansas, where they spent most of their lives. Maybe at some point I'll be able to locate them. Just wanted to drop by and say hi.
