Bio Photo Hello,

My name is Paula Jackson. I am the mother of 2 wonderful children and a wife to a great hubby. I love animals (I have 4 cats and a dog), reading, writing stories, playing games, photography and bowling but most of all I love doing research and genealogy work.

I have been doing genealogy research, both for myself and professionally, since 1997. I have been a member of F-A-G for over a year but only recently (April 2011) have had the time and opportunity to become a serious volunteer. I think F-A-G is a wonderful place and my pledge is to help as many people as I can in getting pictures of stones. Even though I live in Owen County, I am willing to go to the counties that surround me which are: Clay, Greene, Monroe and Parke. I spend a lot of time each day putting up memorials, researching at the library and online for information to add to memorials and 2-3 days a week trying to fill photo requests. At times, it gets frustrating but mostly it is rewarding work.

Anyway, I will gladly transfer memorials if they aren't part of my family. Please send me an email with any request you have. My address is psj_4@yahoo.com. I check my email often and will make corrections as soon as I can. One thing I ask if there is an obituary or information that I have added to the memorial, PLEASE be courteuos and leave it there along with credit of me as the one who added it. I spend a lot of hours at the library hand-copying obituaries then typing them up. I also spend a lot of time researching on ancestry.com. I really don't like the idea of my hard work being in vain. Thank you! :)

If you have time, please take a moment to visit my memorial for my mother Marjorie Shear. Thank you!!

Also please visit Baby Herschell. This baby has no family to tend to its grave. I found the grave overrun by weeds. My husband and I cleaned up the area and will continue to keep it nice. If you would leave a flower for him/her I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you!

Also if you could leave flowers for Bryan Haltom it would be greatly apprecaited. He was murdred at the age of 18 and the crime is still unsolved. Please read his story. Thank you!

Also, a visit to my memorial for PFC Brett Wood would also be appreciated. This young man died while fighting for our country. Thank you!

Also please visit these famous people whom f-a-g won't give credit to:

1. Cinematographer--Lauron Draper

2. Poet--William Herschell

3. Boxer--Ace Hudkins

4. Actor--Elderidge "Kit" Carson

5. Actor--John David Carson

6. Conductor--Dino Anagnost.

Thank you for your kindness, take care, God Bless You and happy hunting!! :o)

Paula, Added a photo to your memorials of Philip Joseph Salitros (#88048019) and his wife Oletta Mae McQueen Salitros (#80524525). They're buried in the West, Section 2, Row 6. Thought you'd like to link them. Have a good day.

Mary Defore
Love your work Paula. I have questions about the Parrish line which is under your care, I may have asked before, but just re-hash my memory. I know that Birth certificate shows Tommy(Thomas) Parrish/Parish as Son of Mary or tracy Defore/DeVore depending how you read it, and name variants, I haven't seen any thing for Ernest Parish, his brother. I have found a marriage record for Mary E. Miller but none for defore in Kansas or Missouri or Indiana. I know that the obit is fact that he had two sons to a woman, but I have not had any luck on tracing Mary Defore. So I was wondering if you have any info that could help or a pointer in a direction?

I did find an ernest born in Indiana around the time of Thomas, but I haven't been able to find much else, and I can't be certain it's him.

RE: Wilkie at Greenwood Memorial in San Diego
I finally found them! Sorry it has taken so long but I was looking back at my older messages and decided to try again. This time I used www.billiongraves.com and found their markers. They are buried in the Restlawn section of the cemetery but I don't know the lot number. I posted the photos on their memorials. Still don't understand why the office had no record for them. Hope you're having a good year! Linda

I couldn't find my memorial for Mr. Bull, so I am assuming that Find A Grave deleted it for me. Thank you for bringing the duplicate to my attention. God Bless you.
