Bio and Links
Bio Photo Currently retired (3rd time) and have found ancestry an interesting passtime. After researching my Mother's side of the family (got back to early 1800's) and Father's side of the family (got back to mid 1600's) I started the same process of researching my wife's family. I have had limited sucess because they all came from Poland and many records were lost/misplaced/destroyed during WW2.

This research has transitionally led me to graveyards. which has actually given me a different perspective regarding gravesites. Taking photos and posting the information to "the world" on the internet is not only a passtime for me, it has become a sort of "fudicary" responsibility. Friends, family and loved ones of those buried sometimes find comfort and relief in viewing these photos and it is mine and others responsibility to present true and accurate data for those folks.

Robert Helms Sparks
Death Certificate #03429 died of sudden infant death syndrome. His parents are still living. His mother is Patricia "Tisa" Helms Sparks and his father is Robert Harlan Sparks. I tried to remove (edit) the person you have attached to the baby's grave information. Evelyn is not his parent.

Paul John Lewis tombstone
Richard, thank you for posting the tombstone photo for Paul John Lewis ~~~

I have added a photo of him when he was very young and noticed the photo. This warmed my heart.

Jack Thomas Stephens Sr.
Greeting team member,I just wanted to leave you a note of thanks for clarifying the top left-hand corner of his tombstone I am so grateful. Because it would have been a heavy task to go out there to locate that grave I said it was over 18,000 but now that I think about it the last time I went I think it was in the forties so I thank you so much I contacted Miss Kathleen on that issue. Thank you so much and thank you for your dedication to this website God bless you and yours. Sharon Haywood

RE: Jack Stephens
Thank you so much for getting back to me. I don't know why I didn't think of dirt. Being from North Texas I've seen plenty! Lol My husband was very relieved to find this out though. Thank you again for your time and may God bless you for all you do! 😄
