Bio and Links
Bio Photo I hold no dream of fortune vast,
nor seek undying fame.
I do not ask when life is past
that many know my name.
And I can live my life on earth
contended to the end,
if but a few shall know my worth
and proudly call me friend.
by Edgar A. Guest

Please make it easier on volunteers and make it more respectful for the cemetery staff by calling ahead and getting your loved one's exact grave location prior to making a photo request, and make sure the exact, full plot location of that loved one's stone (while verifying there is one) is listed in your request because while we're in an office waiting to ask for information for someone we never knew, and asking for a map, there are sometimes other people waiting and making funeral arrangements. It feels so wrong to bother them with a minor request, compared to the former. By calling ahead it gives the staff a better opportunity to serve you with your request and others' with their arrangements at the appropriate times. Besides, some cemetery staff are not so willing to provide grave locations to someone who isn't related and usually go out of their way with greater understanding and appreciation for the F.A.G. volunteer "project." And, I love when we can change a negative attitude about the site/process, to a positive one. A bonus for us all that keeps passing on. Thanks. :)

Note: If I have added a memorial and you would like to manage it instead, don't hesitate to let me know and I will gladly transfer it to you, especially if you have multiple edits, . It's easier to just make the transfer and have you do all the edits you wish, at your pace. And, if I have made any errors or, you have a suggestion, again, please let me know as I take no offense.

Parley Todd
South Park Cemetery - Roswell, NM

Sorry to say there is no headstone for this person.

Parley is interred in Public Burial (for families who could not pay or for those who had no family).

There is no exact burial plot for people interred in Public Burial, especially the time frame for Parley.

Thanks. Had no idea who BillionGraves was but they sent me a picture and location. Even the managers couldn't find it.
