Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born in MS and after living in CA for 43 years my husband and I have returned to Florence to live. I became interested in my family history during the early 1990's and while searching for ancesters in old cemeteries I was saddened to see the neglect and damage to beautiful old headstones and monuments. Whenever possible I volunteer at Greenwood, Jackson's oldest cemetery. The iron marker in my bio picture was made by Pearl River Foundrey owned and operated by a family member in the late 1800's. There are two of these markers in Greenwood Cemetery.
I love complete memorials and I am happy to photograph headstones and post them to help complete memorials on find a grave. I must give credit and many thanks to my husband, Les and sister, Sue for their help with obtaining burial locations.

My Family names: Parker, Richardson, Winterstein, Switzer, Bell/Beall, Bradley, Dorman. My husbands family names: Davenport, Arnold, Davis, and Stinson.

RE: Lakewood photo request
this one is confusing Quida may be listed under
Barbara Jane Sellers
Birth 10 May 1933 Death 2 Jun 1988

married to
Billy Walker Harrison
Birth 28 April 1927 Death 7 December 1987 (U.S., Department of Veterans Affairs BIRLS Death File, 1850-2010)

Her 1940 census has Oreara Sellers but was told it was Quida. Then I see a tree with the correct parents but named Barbara Jane Sellers.

So if you see these two please take photo and I will change memorial. thanks for all you do!
