Bio Photo Question...
how and why did Garrett Parker's stone got "dumped" in a field in Las Cruces, NM when his burial is in Bethlehem Cemetery, Fayette County, Tennessee?

Garrett Parker # 66038225

His stone was found in a field near Las Cruces, NM. It was brought to the Masonic Cemetery, thinking it was stolen from his grave, but Garrett wasn't buried there. The stone remained in the office for decades, but with the help Find A Grave and a number of volunteers, his burial site was found. His stone now rests with him.


I live in Las Cruces, New Mexico.

My father's side of my family is from Henry Co., Tn. My mother's family is from Stutman Co., North Dakota, and from Preston, Minn.

You are welcomed to use my photo's that I have taken, but please give me credit for the photograph.

If I have made a memorial of one of your relatives or friend, I'd be very happy to transfer (unless they are also my relatives!), please just ask.

Mitchell and I went to Treadwell High School in Memphis. He was one of my best friends. How do you know him?
