Bio and Links
I live on the road and get to see a lot of country. I have always enjoyed the peaceful solitude of cemeteries.

I have been researching my family lines for quite a while. They include, Parrish, Parker, Davis, Stem, Bruce, Barrington, Crunk, Henderson, Stem, Dobbs, Gibbs, Northcutt, Gordy, Mason, Rambin, Hinson, etc.

I love making contact with new family members and getting to know them while sharing notes and research.

I have photos of many of the tombstones I have posted, but have trouble downsizing them to post here. If you find a family member's grave that I have posted, and wish a photo of it, email me about it. If it happens to be one that I have a photo of, I will gladly send one to you.

I have been out of commission for a while due to a stroke, but am back almost as good as new now, so, if you sent me messages that I didn't respond to, please forgive me. It will take a while to catch up -- it's been 2 years now, so...

Howard Parker
On the memorial for Howard Parker Find A Grave Memorial# 5150292 you asked to be contacted by anyone who knows him. I didn't know him, but I have met his son Jesse. Howard and Jesse and I share Margaret Rhodes King Parker as an ancestor, she is my great grandmother and she is Howard's grandmother. She had 2 husbands, I am a descendant of the first and Howard is a descendant of the second.

I might have other information, I just don't have anything I can get at right now--I have the family tree on my laptop upstairs.

You can email me at, please put genealogy in the subject or I will probably just delete without reading.

RE: Glendale Cemetery, Goliad County

So nice to hear from you. Transferring a memorial is simple and easy. You just click on the [Transfer Management] area near the top right of the memorial page and then paste my contributor number into the Contributor ID# area. It will then show my name and ask if you want to transfer the memorial to me. You click on Transfer the memorial and wait until the website does its work.

My Find A Grave # is 47263401

I would be so happy for you to transfer all of the Glendale memorials, or any others in Goliad County, that you currently manage, to me. I am still very active on Find A Grave, adding obits., making family links, etc. I have family roots in Goliad and knew a good many of the people buried in Glendale. Some were parents of friends, friends, teachers, etc.

Actually, if you don't have people to manage other memorials, not in Goliad County, I would be happy to receive them.

Best regards,

Hi Cheryl, hope you are still improving after your stroke.

I recently sent you info to add to these Davis memorials in Garden of Memories - did you get it?

I am so glad to see that you are back active. I was more than a little frustrated with your lack of response to my requests to add information to memorial sites in Glendale Cemetery. I have a special interest in this location and am helping the local cemetery association document the cemetery. I will look at your sites there and see what needs to be added, if anything. I have photographed all the gravestones there, so yours should have pictures now.

Best regards,
