|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.

Thank you so much for photographing the headstone for Armin & Laura. We had been looking for their burial locations for YEARS and recently obtained a death certificate. The final piece of the family burial puzzle is in place, and photographed. We really appreciate that you took the time to fulfill our request!

I see you took photos for some of the graves there. Do you know if the list is complete for all that have a marker or are there more to be added?
I'll be adding a name shortly for someone that was buried there according to their death certificate and putting in a photo request.
