WELL, I HAVE MOVED BACK TO SULPHUR,LA. Been kinda out of the site for a while since I lost my dad in 2010. however, I am starting back up again in good ol 2012.I have always loved graveyards! My mom says that ever since I was a child I loved going with my grandmother,Izetta Parker, and listen to all the history of our family. I have always wanted to know about my Grandfather,Mytric Parker,he was murdered in 1972 while he was being robbed at the store they owned. Which to this day his murder is a cold case in Gulfport,Mississippi.I believe that his case is the reason I am always trying to put in the names of those who lost their lives due to abuse or murder. Everyone that lived has a story to tell and some of us in this world feel the need to either tell it or make sure they are not ever FOROTTEN. I also have family that belongs to the Parker,Smith,Flurry,Scarborough,Breland families that are in Harrison,Stone,Hancock and Pearl River Counties in Mississippi.The Strahan is from my first husband and Farlow is from the present husband. I love taking photo requests for people in my area. If I put a name of your family or a close friend and you wish to correct me or own it just ask or tell me.I mean no harm to anyones family of a loved one lost by the hands of other people. I have lost some very close friends at the hand of others by people drinking and driving and have a virtual graveyard for those that have died to this senseless act.HAPPY GRAVING....
I "spoke" with you awhile back. I believe it was in 2013. I had asked you about Glen J. Sallee. ("J" stands for Junior.) I was wondering if you could give me a hint of some places I could also research to try to find out about him. He was in the army and was in New Orleans (according to my husband who was about 13 at that time) where he was "murdered". He was sent back here to MO to buried. Here is the info on him:
Glenn J Sallee Birth: Apr. 30, 1924 Death: Mar. 14, 1964 Rock Prairie Cemetery Rock Prairie Polk County Missouri, USA
Find A Grave Memorial# 45146656
You may not find Rock Prairie if you don't know where to look....That's how small it is. ;)
Stephen Ledell 38623533 I have added plot data for Stehen. You can see the additions on your profile page under the "edits" tab. This is a new edit system that is really easy to use. You can look at my profile page if you want more info about it.
RE: hi there Hello Trudi - Maybe distantly :-) - My relatives married into all the families you named I think. I have a lot of them in my family tree, starting with Henry marrying my ancestor John Havens' sister, Elizabeth, who are buried in the Old Flurry Cemetery now in George Co MS. [when they died, it was Jackson Co.] Linda
Mya George Trudi, that's is a sad story for Mya. I had thought about creating homemade markers for those without headstones. The problem with the big cemeteries is that they only allow certain types of stones. I wish something could be done. So sad. Thanks for sharing her story though.
In trying to find out more about a murder of a childhood friend - Heidi M. Goetsch, killed by multiple gun shots, Baton Rouge, July 17, 2003 - I found your Virtual Graveyards. I don't know where Heidi is buried. She may have been cremated with no burial.
Would you mind adding her to one your Virtual Graveyards? These are the details I have for her: Name: Heidi M. Goetsch Born: Sept. 21, 1955 (Milwaukee, Wisconsin, I believe) Died: July 17, 2003 (Thursday), Baton Rouge, Louisiana Murdered, unsolved to date Father: Arthur Otto Goetsch, born: May 31, 1925, Sheboygan County, Wisconsin; died: July 13, 1987, Wheaton, DuPage County, Illinois
I've checked online to verify if her murder case has been closed, but I didn't find anything.
You have done a wonderful thing to memorialize those who have been cruelly murdered.
Thank you in advance. Jean E. DeLauche, St. Louis, Missouri
