Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been doing this since Feb 2011, and it is amazing how one can get so focused on the past and totally get carried away. Depending on who I am researching at the time, sometimes I feel like I am right there in that time zone and feeling their presence. Weird huh!!!!

I am kicking myself for not asking more questions when I was younger and all the history was still alive to answer the questions.

The Son of Mildred Louise (Knight) Parrish (1920-2009) and Martin Hamilton "Bill" McGimpsey (1910 1968).

Louise is the daughter of Augustine "Gus" Hahn Knight (18871967) & Vivian Luella Evans (18971988)

Augustine "Gus" Hahn Knight is the son of Nathan Francis Knight (18381919) & Maria Louisa Carlton (18481937)

Vivan Evans Knight is the daughter of William H Evans b.1860 & Nancy A Evans b.1871

My father is Martin Hamilton "Bill" McGimpsey (1910 1968) is the son of:
Henry James McGimpsey 1829 1907
Elizabeth "Eliza" "Liza" Hamilton 1829 1866

Emmett Parrish was my step-dad and is the Son of Benjamin "Ben" Harrison (Parish) Parrish (18891949) & Judie Jude Juda Judy Lee McGuire (18891964)

(NOTE) Depending on who wrote the names down, Parrish was spelled both ways, with one R and with two Rs. Also as PErish & PErrish as well.

Also note, Jude's name was spelled as Judie, Jude, Juda and Judy again, depending on who wrote the name down as well as what mood she was in that day. She was also "older" than Ben and didn't want anyone to know it!

I went to Stoutland School, Stoutland, Camden, Missouri, USA, from 1953 to 1963 and then moved to Independence/Kansas City Missouri area and attended Truman High School.

If anyone wants a memorial transferred to them, please let me know because as a relative or close friend can always do a much better memorial than someone not related. I try to do the best I can with each memorial and that is what takes me so long, the research.

Also please note, You may use any of the pictures I upload to Find A Grave as long as they are used respectful. I upload them to share with the family's and friends and I am happy when you can find them useful. I just ask that you please acknowledge who took the picture, whether it is one I took or someone else has taken.

Note: when taking and posting pictures of headstones, please make sure you get a good picture, they deserve it. If you can hardly read it, no one else can read it as well. Everyone will thank you!

Ref Booklover
Hey Jerry,

I seen your post on "booklover"s page. She never adds any information I suggest either. Alot of others have had issues also. So when it comes to a edit or anything and if she has it I dont waste my time. I thought I would let you know your not the only one. Its all about the numbers with her, I live in the same town she added memorials for and hardly do I ever get to add a memorial in my area.

Are we related. I'm always looking for new connections. I notice you have a common interest in the Breiding family.

Raymond Wagner obit
Yes Jerry, there is a reason I did not record Mr Wagner's birth and date dates on the correct places. It was getting late in the evening and I was running out of time, but they were in the obit section if you had read it. My intentions were to supply the dates in the correct area while I was am waiting for the arrangements to be completed by the funeral home. However, for your information, I did fill in dates in the correct boxes around 6:00 this morning. Thanks for overseeing my memorials. Between the 2 of us my memorials should be perfect and that is a good thing.
