Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born in MS and after living in CA for 43 years my husband and I have returned to Florence to live. I became interested in my family history during the early 1990's. While searching for ancesters in old cemeteries I was saddened to see the neglect and damage to beautiful old headstones and monuments.

The iron marker in my bio picture is in Greenwood Cemetery, Jackson's oldest cemetery and was made by Pearl River Foundrey owned and operated by a family member in the late 1800's. There are two of these markers in Greenwood Cemetery.

I am happy to photograph headstones and post them to help complete memorials on find a grave. I must give credit and many thanks to my husband, Les and sister, Sue for their help with obtaining burial locations.

My Family names: Parker, Richardson, Winterstein, Switzer, Bell/Beall, Bradley, Dorman. My husbands family names: Davenport, Arnold, Davis, and Stinson.

Photo Request Problem - Vera Makamson
I want to say thank you for all your work that you do and taking the time to look for my aunt and uncle's headstones.
My Aunt's grave would be marked as Vera Stodghill and her husband Charles E. Stodghill, Jr. is beside her. Her 2nd husband was Durrell Makamson and he is buried next to his 1st wife in a different cemetery.

Vera Stodghill / Find A Grave # 135737209
Lakewood Memorial Park
Section 14, Plot 200

Charles Ellis Stodghill, Jr. / Find A Grave#135737119

I remember the graves near a tree. Let me know if I need to put the request in again.
Thank you,
Jill Stamper

Cynthia "Cindy" Leigh (Grantham) Long
There are two memorials for this person. #131222194 and 123502060. You may want to check with the other originator to see which one should be consolidated. Cynthia was my 2nd cousin. Her maiden name was Grantham. She married a Long, so her memorial should read Cynthia "Cindy" Leigh (Grantham) Long. Her mother and father are still living so I know they would appreciate the consolidation of these two memorials.

Thank you,

Charley Edwards
