Bio and Links
Bio Photo My name is Shelba Yoes, I was born and raised in the Northwest Arkansas area, having lived in Greenland for most of my life. My husband, Bill, and I have raised our family of four children in Greenland and now have 4 grandchildren.

Geneaology has always been an interest of mine and now, being semi-retired after 35+ years of operating a daycare, I'm working on filling in the blanks in the family tree, with sometime surprising results.

The family lines I'm currently at work on include the Yoes, Parrish, Southern, Loftin and Moore lines.

I have been transcribing cemeteries for about the last year. And photographing stones, whenever available to place with the information. If you have requests for headstones in my immediate area, I'll be happy to help find these and get the information to you.

For the information I enter onto Find-A-Grave I use back up documentation from a headstone, death notice, census or other document; however, there is always the opportunity for error and if you find an error in a posting of mine, please let me know and I will be happy to correct it. I can be reached at

Marrs Family
Shelba, I appreciate all your work on cemeteries in NW Arkansas. I am researching the Marrs family of NW AR. One of the first settlers of Washington County, AR was James Marrs. It is said he died in Prairie Grove, Washington, AR around 1876. He was born on 20 Aug 1784, maybe in VA. However I have been unable to find his grave. Do you know if there is a Marrs Family Cemetery in Washington County, that may not have been inventoried yet?

Shelba, I just transferred the above person to your account. He absolutely is, without a doubt, at Lawn Haven Memorial Gardens here in Clovis, NM. I hadn't heard from you so figured you had more than a few things happening around your home but he is in your care. The one you have at Mission Garden of Memories needs to be deleted, please.

Also, my great grandmother was Ora F. Suttles. She married James A. Allen. Ora was born about 1878 and Ora's mother was named Martha Southern. Have you ever run across any of these names in your Southern Family?

RE: Marcus Center
I would love to have a copy of the photo. I have been researching Marcus and Nancy Allen and the Hawkins/Taylor families for quiet awhile. I'd love to have any information about them. This is my email:
