Bio Photo This screen name is a joint account for members of the Park, Blalock and Allen families. Welcome!

*About our family*
Donald Edward PARK inspired us to discover our family history. Beginning when we were very young, Dad was our guide to the past, from exploring time-worn cemeteries to examining dusty documents for even the tiniest hints. It's been an almost lifelong journey! After Dad's loss, we are now diving into preserving our history with even more vigor, focusing on the ancestors of Donald Edward PARK, Patricia Ann ALLEN, Dennis Ferrell BLALOCK and Thelma Rita STANBOROUGH.

*Spotlight on history*
We invite you to read about a few of our relatives who served during World War II: Col. Dennis F. BLALOCK (landed at Anzio, survived Rapido River, helped liberate a concentration camp - received Silver Star, Bronze Star, Purple Heart with 2 Oak Leaf Clusters), BM1 Thomas W. STANBOROUGH (survivor of the U.S.S. Arizona, later died in the Solomon Sea), Captain/Master Thomas STANBOROUGH (naturalized U.S. citizen from Australia, Ship's Master with the U.S. Merchant Marine, sunk by German submarine U-158 in the Gulf of Mexico), Lt. Col. Zachariah T. STANBOROUGH (bomber pilot with the Army Air Corps), and Thelma Stanborough BLALOCK (airfield support with the Army Air Corps).

*A note about images and biographies*
Here are the guidelines for using images and information we have posted at Find-A-Grave:

(1) Photo of grave: These may be used anywhere. Please include photo credit.

(2) Biography, caption or photo of person(s): These may be used for educational or historical preservation purposes ONLY in non-profit circumstances. Full and proper credit must be included.

(3) Document: DO NOT use these elsewhere.

*A note about transfers*
If a memorial is not listed in our virtual cemeteries, we will transfer it to anyone interested in managing it. We believe that placing each memorial with someone who has a personal interest results in more accurate and complete memorials.

*Some unsolicited advice*
Have you read the Find-A-Grave guidelines in the FAQ's recently? If you are like us, you read them once when you first joined and then never looked at them again. We recently learned that was not a good idea... as the guidelines regarding acceptable images changed dramatically in 2012. By unknowingly having prohibited images on our memorials, we nearly lost the ability to interact with this wonderful community. Please take the time to read and understand the current guidelines, and edit your memorials accordingly. The repercussions of an administrator finding any violations can be severe, even if that infringement was unintentional.

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

Son of David C. Atwell
The son of David C. Atwell was David Melburn Atwell born 1856 died 1885 and is buried in Lapeer County, Michigan in Attica at Attica Cemetery across from the town hall. He was buried next to his wife Ada Squire but possibly remarried after his death as she is buried next him under the name of Ada Shoemaker died in 1906.
Somewhere in my records I may have the burial record of David C., father.

RE: Canzada Frances

Thanks for the information. This sounds like the same person.

I have found the divorce records at the Dickinson County Kansas Courthouse for Canzada & Peter Cress.

Canzada Frances Cress vs Paul C. Cress
Dickinson County Courthouse #8371
Canzada filed for divorce on 18-Jun-1919

Indicates they were married 13-jan-1917 in Salina, KS

Requests custody of her son, George Marian Porter

Request her name be restored to Canzada Frances Porter

The divorce records indicate George Marian Porter was a minor. So based on the FindaGrave Birth of 1891, and her son was born about 1905. George would be 14, so that adds up.

The divorce records give only the surname of Porter, no mention of Parker. Sounds like she may have moved to Lawrence after the divorce.

Paul Clarence Cress, who she divorced in 1919, would move to Los Angeles California and re-marry and die there in 1965

I need to study this further, but wanted to get back with you

RE: Canzada Frances
I am so sorry that you home was flooded.
No rush on this as you have more important things to deal with, cleaning up after the flood.

My prayers are with you and your family

Canzada Frances "Zada" Park Porter
I am researching Canzada Frances ???? Porter Cress. (Maiden name unknown)

She married Paul Cress in 13-Jan-1917 in Salina Kansas. This comes from her Dickinson County Kansas divorce records of 18-Sep-1919

In these records it asked her surname to return to Porter. same as her son before marriage 'George Marian Porter'

Do you know if Canzada Frances "Zada" Park Porter
is who Paul Cress divorced. Everything seems to add up, but wanted to get a second opinion.

Thanks for your help Jay Cress

Paul Cress is my great grandfather's brother
