Bio Photo I live in Las Cruces, New Mexico.

My father's side of my family is from Henry Co., Tn.
My mother's family is from Stutman Co., North Dakota,
and from Preston, Minn.

You are welcomed to use my photo's that I have taken,
but please give me credit for the photograph.

If I have made a memorial of one of your friends or relatives, I'd be very happy to transfer (unless they are also my relatives!), please just ask.

how and why did Garrett Parker's stone
got "dumped" in a field in Las Cruces, NM
when his burial is in Bethlehem Cemetery,
Fayette County, Tennessee?

Garrett Parker # 66038225

His stone was found in a field near Las Cruces, NM.
It was brought to the Masonic Cemetery, thinking it
was stolen from his grave, but Garrett wasn't buried
there. The stone remained in the office for decades,
but with the help Find A Grave and a number of
volunteers, his burial site was found.
His stone now rests with him.

I think you should keep your memorial with all of the information you have recorded and I'll delete mine. Thanks, Errol

Luecks in Zion/Zion Lutheran
You may remember our moves from one Zion cemetery to the other, earlier this year? The snow has melted and I was able to go out to the Zion on highway 153. I located all the Luecks that we moved out of the other highway 97 Zion cemetery. So we got it right :-) I also found a couple more that were not listed in either cemetery, and added them to Zion 153: Charles and Frieda. I photographed the headstones and GPSd all of them. Just thought you would want to know. Thanks again for the quick moves makes cemetery cleaning (is that the right word?) so much easier!

Luecks in Zion/Zion Lutheran
THANK YOU for moving the Lueck family so quickly. I added GPS locations for Wm and Marie this morning and transferred my photos over. I'm in process of deleteing my memorials so we don't have dups. I do suspect that the other Luecks are there as well, since they are not showing up in Zion, so I think you made the right moves! I will go out to Zion Lutheran as soon as our snow melts (again...we are in the middle of a big blizzard) and GPS everyone out there and memorialize those without.

RE: your photographs
Hi Valice.....just wanted you to know of the mistake I found last night in my Ancestry Tree and Findagrave linking. The George Berry in Gravel Bank Cemetery, Washington County, Ohio is not the son of Alexander Berry. I have removed the link and added the George Berry who I believe to be the correct son. I hope my mistake didn't affect you.

RE: more...
Thank you, Valice. I will enjoy reading that letter. I live in Marietta, Washington County, Ohio and I took some of the pictures in the letter. I am JDM on Findagrave. My connection...Alexander Gaston Berry was a half brother to my 2 Great Grandmother Margaret Dovenbarger McFarland. His mother, Sarah Mitchell Dovenbarger Berry, is buried in New England Cemetery, Athens County, Ohio. Thank you, Jill MacRae
