Bio Photo Hello,

My name is Paula Jackson. I am the mother of 2 wonderful children and a wife to a great hubby. I love animals (I have 3 cats: Chance, Melinka, and Mickey), reading, writing stories, playing games, photography and bowling but most of all I love doing research and genealogy work.

I have been doing genealogy research, both for myself and professionally, since 1997. I have been a member of F-A-G for over a year but only recently (April 2011) have had the time and opportunity to become a serious volunteer. I think F-A-G is a wonderful place and my pledge is to help as many people as I can in getting pictures of stones. Even though I live in Owen County, I am willing to go to the counties that surround me which are: Clay, Greene, Monroe and Parke. I spend a lot of time each day putting up memorials, researching at the library and online for information to add to memorials and 2-3 days a week trying to fill photo requests. At times, it gets frustrating but mostly it is rewarding work.

Anyway, I will gladly transfer memorials if they aren't part of my family. Please send me an email with any request you have. My address is I check my email often and will make corrections as soon as I can. One thing I ask if there is an obituary or information that I have added to the memorial, PLEASE be courteuos and leave it there along with credit of me as the one who added it. I spend a lot of hours at the library hand-copying obituaries then typing them up. I also spend a lot of time researching on I really don't like the idea of my hard work being in vain. Thank you! :)

If you have time, please take a moment to visit my memorial for my mother Marjorie Shear. Thank you!!

Also please visit Baby Herschell. This baby has no family to tend to its grave. I found the grave overrun by weeds. My husband and I cleaned up the area and will continue to keep it nice. If you would leave a flower for him/her I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you!

Also if you could leave flowers for Bryan Haltom it would be greatly apprecaited. He was murdred at the age of 18 and the crime is still unsolved. Please read his story. Thank you!

Also, a visit to my memorial for PFC Brett Wood would also be appreciated. This young man died while fighting for our country. Thank you!

Also please visit these famous people whom f-a-g won't give credit to:

1. Cinematographer--Lauron Draper

2. Poet--William Herschell

3. Boxer--Ace Hudkins

4. Actor--Elderidge "Kit" Carson

5. Actor--John David Carson

6. Conductor--Dino Anagnost.

Thank you for your kindness, take care, God Bless You and happy hunting!! :o)

RE: Lemuel LeRoy Parrish
Thank you for the reply. It has been my rule that both spellings are correct. Sometimes the stone cutter makes a mistake. I'm related to persons of both spellings. I've had my DNA tested five times, to see and compare the results, and all have connected me to both spellings. Thanks for all your help. I'm a disabled vet who spends too much time doing genealogy. My degree is in anthropology with emphasis on migration. Genealogy, to me, is migration.

Thanks again.

Lemuel LeRoy Parrish
I'm Terrill Parrish, a distant relative of Lemuel. I think I found his grave in Cloverdale Cemetery #20007395. His last name is spelled with one "R", Parish. There is a photo of his grave marker.
When you have time would you take a look and let me know if this is the same person as you have listed.

Thank you.

I checked the site when i saw it on your site. Thank you so very much for taking the time and effort to take care of it. i am no kin but feel as you'll do about sites like that one. where i live in Tennessee i guess that stones are maybe cheaper then where you are. a flat stone should be less expensive.
