Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been interested in genealogy and doing genealogical research for over 40 years, especially the Beetem, Sanders, Scott, Skaggs, Shanks, Chapman, Kibler, and Parcel families. While it's always exciting to find new names and dates, my biggest thrills come from discovering stories about my ancestors and learning more about their daily lives.

My family has been mowing and caring for cemeteries for over 30 years. My job is weed-eating around the stones and my husband has always teased me about working so slowly because I am more interested in reading the stones than trimming around them!! I couldn't begin to count the hours we have spent straightening stones and trying to keep fallen stones from disappearing into the overgrowth.

I enjoy photographing cemeteries as a way of preserving the history contained in them.

RE: Chenoweth Wortham Paris
Awe thanks Debbie!! Sometimes when I am looking for someone and the spelling is wrong I can't find the memorial. So I have created some, and been asked to delete mine as it is a duplicate. I love Findagrave and it has helped me so much in my research! Thank you Debbie for taking the time to care for the resting places of many loved ones! I for one am truly grateful!

Hello, Your suggestion has been added. I would also recommend that you request a photo of her plot location. If you fill the request, I should have the photos within a few days.

You have a memorial in Baughman Cemetery for Julia Ann. According to Family Search, Julia Ann Partlow whose parents are Isaac and Mary Gross is buried in Baughman Cemetery along with Isaac and Mary. After her first husband died, she must have married a Partlow.
