Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been researching my PARKER surname as well as other surnames as it relates to my family tree since 2001. I have work with a team of other PARKER researchers throughout the country all whom are distant cousins discovering each through the great hobby of genealogy on the internet. We now have over 10,000 family members on our tree with written as well as picture documentation. I have been traveling since 2003 to TN meeting with many cousins, researching and participating in our annual PARKER family reunion.

Sarah Elizabeth Merchant Hargis
In response to your question about the lack of an inscription for Sarah Hargis, I've added the following to the caption for the head stone photo, "At Arlington and other national cemeteries, inscriptions on 'private' markers such as this are the responsibility of the family, or the estate of the deceased. It is not unusual for there to be no family -- or money in the estate -- to add an inscription to a private marker years later when the surviving spouse dies. If requested by survivors, the cemetery will sometimes order a 'government' foot stone to mark the grave of the spouse not named on a private head stone."

RE: Harry Warren at Forest Home Cemetery
Did they send you a map of the location? If not, can you ask them to e-mail you a copy?

The area where Harry Warren is buried is of interest to me because it may help me to locate other graves that were moved because of the construction of the highway (Interstate 290). I can easily find Section ELX on the cemetery map, but the low numbers in the section, below about 1100, I have never been able to find.

I am very curious where they are saying he is buried since it might help me to find the graves of other people that have made photo requests for the same section.

RE: Harry Warren at Forest Home Cemetery
Hi! Did the cemetery give you the burial plot location? I need that to provide a photo of where he is buried. Thanks! Ace

Just an FYI, an updated photo of the headstone indicating dod has been added to his memorial.

RE: Harry Warren at Forest Home Cemetery
Hi, Barbara! I looked on Sunday for Harry Warren's grave at the location you provided (Section ELX, Lot 627), but I did not find the grave.

The reason I could not find his grave is that it has most likely been moved. Section ELX, Lot 627 was in an area the cemetery lost to eminent domain in order to construct the Eisenhower (Congress) Expressway (also known as I 290). Graves in the way of the highway were moved to other cemetery locations.

Unfortunately the ladies in the office never leave the office, and they just blindly give out the first information that they find about a name instead of carefully examining the burial record. This happens over and over again. If I could lead the ladies by the hand and show them what I see when I am looking for a grave I would. But they might get their shoes dirty, so it will never happen.

Unfortunately, the best thing to do is to call the cemetery staff back and politely let them know that they did not give you the correct location. Hopefully the info about the Interstate going through the burial plot will help you to obtain the correct burial plot. Please let me know if you have any questions about this information.

Phone: 708-366-1900

So I don't have a picture for you now, but I hope you will be able to give me updated information so that I can soon.

RE: Warren County, Kentucky Grave Pictures
So happy that you are happy with the photos. It was such a beautiful day Fri and my wife and Dau-in-law and grandkids were in Fla on Spring break. When I am by myself I am the Boss of the house. Martinsville & Pleasant Grove are not very far apart and beautiful country with pastures and farm land. No towns just country. Saw a Mennonite buggy full of laughing kids go by at Pleasant Grove Cemetery out for a cruise through the country roads. They kept waving until they were out of sight

Thank you so much for your reply to my suggestion pertaining to her grave entry. I've been doing family research work for a very long time and I have found a number of other situations where a woman lied about her age in her having married a man who was younger than she was. I've had no luck so far tracing down who her earlier husband was but I will let you know if I find records proving who he might have been. Irene's 2nd husband was, based on my research work on him, a fairly famous man. His first wife divorced him in Florida (1948) so he and Irene married after that.
