Bio and Links
Bio Photo This screen name is a joint account for the Park/Blalock Family. Welcome!

*A note about photos and biographies*
If I have taken a photo of your loved one's GRAVE, you may use it wherever you choose. If I have posted a photo or biography for a PERSON, please include full and proper credit when using it elsewhere. This information should be found in the caption attached to the image or within the biography. Thank you.

*A note about transfers*
If a memorial is not listed in one of our family lines (see virtual cemeteries), then I will transfer it to anyone interested in managing it. I will transfer memorials listed in our "Extended Family" to other family members. My belief is that someone who has a personal interest in a memorial is in a better position to verify future edit requests, resulting in more accurate and complete memorials.

*A note about photo requests*
If you know the plot location of a grave at Greenoaks Memorial Park in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, and would like a photo, click to "Request a Photo" and let me know of the request. If you do not know the plot location, please call the cemetery office at (225) 925-5331 to inquire. They will provide this information to family members, but are often unable or unwilling to provide it to Find-A-Grave volunteers.

*Spotlight on history*
I first joined Find-A-Grave to honor our relatives with memorials. For a brief walk through history, I invite you to read about a few of our relatives who served during World War II: Dennis Ferrell BLALOCK (in the Army, saw combat in Africa, landed at Anzio, survived Rapido River, helped liberate a concentration camp, and served as an Occupational mayor), Thomas William STANBOROUGH (in the Navy, a survivor of the U.S.S. Arizona, later died in the Solomon Sea), Thomas STANBOROUGH (a naturalized U.S. citizen from Australia, served as Ship's Master with the U.S. Merchant Marine, sunk by German submarine U-158 in the Gulf of Mexico), Zachariah T. STANBOROUGH (a bomber pilot stationed in England with the Army Air Corps), and Thelma Stanborough BLALOCK (a civilian employee with the Army Air Corps).

*About my family*
I have been married for almost 35 years to my best friend, Tom. We have two grown children. My parents, Pat and Don, were married for 55 years, with two children and four grandchildren. Our family is heartbroken over the loss of my father on 11 Feb 2014. He was our guiding light and inspiration when first embarking on this journey to discover our family history. After Dad's loss, I am now diving into genealogical efforts with even more vigor, focusing on the ancestors of Donald Edward PARK, Patricia Ann Allen, Dennis Ferrell Blalock and Thelma Rita Stanborough. Other than genealogical pursuits, my husband and I enjoy outdoor fun (hiking, camping, kayaking), gardening and travel. No matter where we are, you are certain to find a camera in hand.

If you have not been able to reach me via the message board below, please email EVEYBL at AOL dot com. Thanks!

RE: #86013969 Lydia Peebles
Hi Evey! Sorry, I am not related to Lydia. I am in the process of photographing and setting up memorials for all of the people buried at the Martinsburg, NY cemetery. Lydia's stone happened to be in one of the sections that I have completed. I can research our old newpaper archives to see if there is any information available for her and let you know. If there are any other headstones you need here just let me know and I will try to get them for you. Have a great day.

Evelyn, I just want to complement you on the great bios that you have written on the memorials that you manage. Reading them gives me a great snapshot of the lives of those who have passed on. Keep up the good work. I hope to generate similar bios for my family members as time permits.

RE: Sarah Crawford/Henry Thomas Park
Hi, Evie: You are on my mind, as I've been reading and enjoying your well-written bios of the Parks.
I'm so sorry for the loss of your father, and I hope the good memories you have are helping you cope.
I was in Olive Branch Cemetery a few weeks ago and have posted a photo on Francis Edward's memorial. If you'd prefer not to have it there, I'll be glad to remove it. I also have one of his wife, Samantha, but there is already one on her memorial. Mine is clearer, but I had to blot out my husband's shoe! I don't know what the protocol is about adding a 2nd photo -- don't want to insult anyone. If you'd like to see it, I'll be glad to post it -- nor not.
Best wishes.

RE: San Luis Cemetery
I think you have a great idea; and I'm sorry you have had similar problems.

I am going to pass along the phone number, but 90% of the photos are already taken and stored on the Genealogical Society's server. He initially agreed to have the Society come and photo all the grave stones, but he withdrew his permission before the job was done. If all the people requesting photos would call him, he might eventually change his mind.

In addition, this man threatened me with the police, if I just came on the property with a camera and took random shots without bothering him at all.

And the last straw is that he doesn't share a plot map of his cemetery. I have no idea what his problem is, but it is serious. Contrast that with the Paso Robles cemetery in our area that leaves a plastic covered copy of of their burials and location map outside on the weekends, when the office is closed.

Best Wishes.

Evey, that is so Awesome, I am glad he followed through and sent you the book. If you are planning on scanning any articles in the book, would you mind emailing me copies, I would love to share them with family?

Also, what is the Title of the Book, who was the Author, is the Kansas State Historical Society who share this info with you?

RE: Could you check one more?
There are no "Sines" listed in Paulding Co. cemetery book. There is a John and Margaret Sins. No dates. He was 70 and she was 67 and is "wife of john"
Hawkins: no name, Bernard, Bessie J., Caroline Snook, Celia, Celia V, Chester J., dorothy F., Emma A., Fred, Gerald V., Harry C., Herbert, James M., John A., John M., Lydie E., mabel, Oliver P., Porter, Robert M., Steven, Susan, Vesta D.

No Frey's.. Several Fry - but no Harriet.

There are many small cemeteries in Paulding County and unfortunately some of them went thru periods of serious neglect! Stones are missing and others illegible. I know of no cemetery which was created to deal with a specific epidemic (have seen them in other counties but have never heard of that in relation to any in Paulding Co.)
Have you checked in Allen County, Indiana? or in Defiance County, Ohio? Both of those counties are fairly close to where your people were living.

I once found family after years of searching because I had not looked across the county line!
Good luck with your search - sorry I could not be more helpful.
