Bio and Links
Bio Photo My name is Donna and I am researching my mom's side of the family. Her name is Vera Elizabeth Parsons of WV. I am related to Charles Parsons and Elizabeth Chestnut. I have been working on the family tree for about five years. I love walking through any cemetery just reading the headstones. I think the history in a cemetery is very fascinating. I would love to hear from other people researching their family.
If I have posted incorrect information, please email me and I will fix it right away.

RE: Light
Hi Donna, I have emailed you a few times at the new yahoo address you gave me but have not heard back from you. I know you are very busy but was wondering if you have any photos of James Light and/or Julia Clay, parents of Everett Light. Thanks so much, Leslie

Picture on my Find A Grave Site
Dear Donna,

Thank you for adding the picture of the headstone to the page for my late husband Michael Chihil. While I love the main headstone picture, I would respectfully ask if you would please remove the picture of the flat stone at the foot of his grave. The flowers in the pot there, look wilted, and it isn't very pretty to show to all of his family and friends who love him still. I'm sure since you work with Find A Grave, you understand that the person who adds a photo, is the one who has to remove it. I don't object other than for the wilting flowers. I'm sure you will understand. If you need to be in touch with me, you may reach me at The number to the memorial site for Michael Chihil is, #5619091. Thank you very much for your understanding.
