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.

RE: Gilbert Haasch
I no longer go to Valhalla. Your best bet is to call the cemetery office and they will look it up for you. Make sure you add the burial location on the memorial - there are still a few people that might go there. They have been having issues at that cemetery during the day with carjackings so I will no longer go there.

Good luck!

RE: oh dear!
No worries, the Villa's are family of mine in New Mexico, It's just that I got the wrong Antonio and I believe it is a grandson instead. If you would let me keep these I will definitely add to them and link everyone up. Thanks so much for your help!
