Bio and Links
Bio Photo Colorado is my home state, where I was born and live now. I have also lived in Virginia, Michigan, and California for brief periods of time. Researching my family tree, using Ancestry and my DNA connections is a main interest for now. I also like to visit cemeteries and take photos. Find A Grave is a great resource for researchers and a comfort to families. I have relocated since I became a contributor but still occasionally visit the old areas.

Thank you for taking the photo of her grave marker. The spelling of her and husband Park W. has been spelled Parkinson and Parkison. His marker in Garfield County is inscribed Parkison.

Carolyn, thank you so much for taking a photo of Harry and Benita's grave. I would like to do a memorial for Benita but can't read the dates on the marker and can't remember her maiden name. If you knew them, then you probably knew my aunt and uncle Vivian (Bid) and Hubert Hallock. Bid was my mother's older sister. They liked to come see us in San Antonio in Feb. for the stock show and rodeo. In about 1962, when I was in the third grade, they brought Harry and Benita with them and we were good friends ever since.

RE: Re: two
All that I can tell you that she definitely has a stone in Vernon Cem in Coweta OK. I do not know if she is actually buried here or not, but the local funeral home has been in business since the early 1820's so they might be able to tell you. I have never been to Ochelata I just found the other stone when I posted the one in Vernon. As the oldest funeral parlor in the area Wright-Brown Funeral Home probably has most of the old records and they are very nice people if you want to contact them.

I changed his name so it will match your photo. I don't get notified when pictures are added, not unless there is some discrepancy which I then need to correct. And now you can add/change names, dates, places, and more yourself using the automated Edit system...I just need to review and accept those and they get done automatically!

Hi! Carolyn, thank you so much for taking the headstone photo of Walter Caughman. I'm sorry to hear that Alma isn't also buried nearby. Now I need to do more sleuth work on where she might be buried. Thanks again! Ann

Hi. Thank you for the photos of the Wakefields in GOM, I really appreciate your help.

Might I make a suggestion? When I find a family member with a headstone, it is like finding the actual person to me & definitely part of my family history is added to.

These photos are not close up and they are taken at an angle. You can't see the patterns on the headstone and they can't be read very well. It would just help if the photos were taken close up and straight down. Why is this important? Because the headstone tells you a lot about a person. We usually pick out a headstone for a reason that has something to do with that individual. Like a cross for example. It says to the people that this person was a believer. Fishermen by a stream, says the person loved to fish. So, these things are important to families looking for their loved ones.

Anyway, just a thought. I'm not trying to be critical, but did want you to see the importance of headstone photos to families.
