I became involved in this when I was off on medical leave. I enjoy it more than I thought I would. I do this mainly because I'm into pleasing people. I try to take care of picture requests for the Parsons, Ks. and surrounding cemeteries.I spend a lot of time walking the cemeteries and getting information and photos for the memorials. I do not believe I "own" the photographs I take nor do I feel I have a copyright on them! I just don't get that philosophy, but, like I said, everyone has their own thoughts on why they contribute to FAG. I do not volunteer to do this for "credit" in any form—I am doing it to help other genealogists as they search for their ancestor's final resting places. It is always absolutely fine with me if you use any and all photos I have taken for your ancestry.com trees or personal family trees and you do not need to give any credits to me. It has always been my idea that if we, as genealogists, do not share our discoveries and work as one big family, we are just making it harder to complete our own personal history books. As far as transfers, if you are a relative of any degree or just someone "special" to the deceased, I will gladly transfer unless they are also my own relative. I love everything historical and Find-A-Grave is a wonderful gift to us wanting to preserve history. Happy hunting! btw... I wanted to bring new attention to the virtual cemeteries that I have created. They are fellow class members of the 1970's Parsons High School USD503 Kansas |

Thank you so much for photographing the graves of Charles and Nellie Bailey. I deeply appreciate it!
|Carol Lynn White||Peter Cannon|
Thank you for trying to search for his grave for a photo.
You have a photo of the grave of his wife, Louisa Jane Benham Cannon, 64385780, which is your memorial, and there is a stone for her, with Peter's name on it. It just doesn't have Either one of their death year, which is 1930.
They share the stone with Louisa's son, Harry B. Ervin, 64385729. He is linked to his father, but not his mother. Could you please do that?
Carol Lynn White

|Kathy Ross||Curtis, Jennie & Cora Parsons headstone pics|
Thanks so much for the pics of these three headstones. I appreciate it very much. Jennie was Curtis Parsons first wife and they have a Lee Parsons buried there. Cora was his 2nd wife. The city has 2 other infant burials listed on this same location and was wondering if there were headstones for them??
Are you close to the cemetery??? I thought you might check it our for me or remember if there were other headstones by these??
Thanks again for your time & help on find-a-grave! Sincerely, Kathy Ross

thank you for replying. i will do more research and get back to you
|Barb Chandler||Thank You|
Thank you so much for the pictures and the obituary for Viola and George Mingel. I will make a note about the spelling of their last name on their memorial. His sisters, father, gg grandfather, have all spelled their names Mingle. Interesting that he changed the spelling with his last name.
