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. 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 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: Robert Fleming
Thank you. What you have done is perfect. Since you are much better at this than I. Could you go on my brother's page (William Barton Fleming) and center his picture? I didn't know how to do this.
Thank you so much.

RE: Rose Fleming
I may have accidently created a second page when I added my mother's picture. If you could delete the page that does NOT have the photo I would appreciate it. So sorry to cause a problem. I don't know why but i couldn't get the page to come up and Find A Grave was saying "no records". This is such a wonderful service. I have added family members that I know are buried but are not in the system. I hope that is OK
