Bio and Links
Bio Photo I consider my "roots" from East Tennessee and Bell County, KY. Many of my direct line moved to Monroe, MI as early as 1923 and that is where our line also starts to include the State of Michigan. I've done as much as possible here on Findagrave to preserve our families past, that they will be remembered. Miller/Cox/Brogan/Parks.
I started in the 90s to visit with those in our line and to gather as many of our old family photos and stories as possible ; before those who can share them with us were gone. There is nothing quite like a photo, story or memory to bring a person to life.
In many cases I don't have any photos of an individual. If you do, PLEASE post them in their memorials! If you have obituaries, biographical sketches or first hand accounts, I would love to add them.
It makes me a little sad to realize that most of my immediate line will have little ties with the areas of my childhood of TN and Monroe, MI, but those ties are preserved here.

My interests with Findagrave have expanded far beyond my family. I love most that it is free for all to share and that it helps to keep the memory of those gone before alive:

Someone once posted a grave memorial here that led me to my Great-Aunts resting place... I hope my work here will do the same for someone else.

THE RECORDING OF A CEMETERY
BY THELMA GREENE REAGAN
Today we walked where others walked
On a lonely, windswept hill;
Today we talked where other cried
For those whose lives are stilled.

Today our hearts were touched
By graves of tiny babies;
Snatched from the arms of loving kin,
In the heartbreak of the ages.

Today we saw where grandparents lay
In the last sleep of their time;
Lying under the trees and clouds -
Their beds kissed by the sun and wind.

Today we wondered about an unmarked spot;
Who lies beneath this hollowed ground?
Was it a babe, child, young or old?
No indication could be found.

Today we saw where Mom and Dad lay.
We had been here once before
On a day we'd all like to forget,
But will remember forever more.

Today we recorded for kith and kin
The graves of ancestors past;
To be preserved for generations hence,
A record that will last.

Cherish it, my friend; preserve it, my friend,
For stones sometimes crumble to dust
And generations of folks yet to come
Will be grateful for your trust.

#36 Nunica
#36 in the Nunica Cemetery is just the row marker and the mushroom is just a decoration that was put to the side so the mower can cut the grass. I believe it belongs to Todd Allen Marks. You need to remove #36 from find a grave.

RE: Wylie Cooke
Bev, We walked the entire Section LL for the markers dated starting with 1985 through 1987+, but did not find Wylie. I'll see what I can find out using his BIRL on Monday, if it has anything more to say other then what's on Ancestry.com. Would he have donated his body? That's why we continued our search coverage to see, if that may have been a possibility. They place the markers as the person is given to the cemetery verses the date of their death. So, if he did that, his marker be placed way into another year or if when they were through and no one returned to claim him...well let's not go there right now. We'll get it figured out. Allen

RE: Wylie Cooke
I got with Denise at the cemetery and we pulled all the burial cards and records for Wylie and nothing came up. I was going to go out and walk Section LL, since that would be the 1985 year interments, but it was raining cats and dogs. When I got out next, I promise I'll walk all the 1985 burials to see if his marker is there. Have a great Easter. Sincerely, Allen

PS: Thanks for not forgetting him. I've ran all I can and have found where her parents are buried in KY and when Ruby died and where, but I can't find where she or Wylie are buried. AJ

Baker
Hello !
I filled your photo request for Frank Baker. Because the memorial was fairly high on the mausoleum wall , it was very hard to get a shot of just Frank's plaque. Therefore I took the shot you see.
Did I photograph the correct Frank Baker? The name of his spouse does not match up to who you have listed.~Nicole
