|Bio and Links|
I was born in Jackson, MS and graduated from Gulfport HS. |
In 2003 after living in CA for 43 years my husband and I returned to Florence, MS to live.
I became interested in my family history during the early 1990's. As I searched for ancesters in old cemeteries I was saddened to see the neglect and damage to beautiful old headstones and monuments so when I became aware of find a grave I knew that this was something I wanted to do. I get great pleasure in photographing and recording cemetery markers for people on FAG.
The iron marker in my bio picture is in Greenwood Cemetery, Jackson's oldest cemetery and was made by Pearl River Foundrey owned and operated by a family member in the late 1800's.
I am happy to photograph headstones and post them to help complete memorials on this wonderful site. I must give credit and many thanks to my husband, Les for his help in searching for markers.
My Family names: Parker, Richardson, Winterstein, Switzer, Bell/Beall, Bradley, and Dorman. My husbands family names: Davenport, Arnold, Davis, and Stinson.

Don't think I would, but would like a picture of her to go in my files. I collect all records I can get, pictures of the person, and pictures of headstones. I have a lot of pictures of headstones from around the Dothan area. I live just South of Dothan. Catherine Elizabeth Baxley was my husbands great grandmother.

Sorry, I don't know anything about her other than she was born 1 Oct 1900 in Louisiana, married James Howard Baxley (second cousin twice removed to my late husband)and died 23 May 1997. I will do some more research and see if I can find out any more on her.

Thank you Fran for photographing my great uncle and aunt's memorial markers. Evelyn's first husband, Malcolm, was lost during WW II. She had two young children by Uncle Malcolm. After he died, his brother, Ira, married Evelyn and was a father to his niece and nephew. Ira and Evelyn never had any children together. A bittersweet story I thought I would share. The Gary family was a fine family. So glad to be a part of it. God bless you for the work you do on behalf of others.

From what I read on the memorial from CO, I would almost bet that's him. I identified his parents from his mother's obit on her memorial, and have linked them.
