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.

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. 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.

Thanks so much for taking the time to photograph the stone for my great-aunt & uncle May in Lakewood Memorial. Do you allow use of your photos for family tree purposes (with proper credit to you, of course)?
Thanks again,
A. Clark

RE: Charles Perry
I just found the Perry son's birthdates and it is unlikely that the grave is Charles Brooks Perry b 15 Jun 1954. Maybe we'll hear from him. thanks. LA

RE: James Toler
You're welcome Fran. There was a picture of him in the newspaper, but the quality of the picture was very poor, probably due to the age of the newspaper or the micro film. I deleted it rather than try to add it. I'll make a note of his name and DOD and the next time I go to the library I'll check the other newspaper that was in business back then and see if it has a picture.
