Bio and Links
Bio Photo Born and raised in Fresno, California of Alabama born parents, got into Genealogy in 1997 when I could not figure out what else to do with this computer on-line. I have built up quite a lot of pictures of old shots of the cemeteries of Clay County and Jefferson County Alabama. I have visited most of the cemeteries of my ancestors and my Wife's ancestors in Missouri, Oklahoma and Arkansas. A Self-proclaimed Historian with a California Historical society (E Clampus Vitus), I am visiting places of historical interest and with my trusty Dimage , Vivitar and Olympus digital cameras have been taking pictures of headstones at whatever cemeteries we may visit and Historical Monuments in our travels in California, Nevada, Arizona, Utah, Colorado, Washington. In Fresno, I have added the 1919 biographies of early Fresno residents from the Paul E Vandor book titled "The History of Fresno County" to as many listings as I could. If you have something you would like to have added to a Bio, just drop me a line.

I follow FindaGrave rules and usually transfer close relatives within 30 days. You can complain to the FindaGrave administrators if you want, but you will likely find they too have little patience for impatient people.

RE: Mary M Parsons
I'm sure you have parents, etc for J.E. And Permelia. If you don't have obit for J.E., I'm happy to share. Just provide direct email address if you would like me to send.

Mary M Parsons
Hi, this lady is family. I wanted to ask about her place of birth, shown as Tuscaloosa County, Alabama. I had her as Jefferson County and her parents living in Jefferson County in the 1860 census. Is there some other document that places her in Tuscaloosa County at that time?

John and his wife Anna are actually buried in his Evans/Murray family plot in Santa Cruz Memorial Park in Santa Cruz, CA. (Plot: Block D, Lot 64). SCMP was previously known as " IOOF cemetery" when John was buried there, as the obit said.I took pics and alerted the memorial manager. Glad to help!
