Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a professional genealogist with more than 30 years of experience. I was on's expert panel until they purchased a genealogy research firm in Salt Lake City, Utah and thereby eliminated their online experts.

On I maintain a few memorial pages of closely related people. If you are more closely related to any one individual than I am, I will consider a transfer of management within the findagrave guidelines.

If you maintain a memorial of any individuals affiliated with my close family lines, if you are not descended from them, and if you would like to transfer them to me, please contact me. If it is a relative of mine, I will be happy to maintain it. I do love to take care of the rellies and write them a nice biography when I can.

I have completed extensive, professional genealogical research for all or nearly all the graves under my care. If you have genealogical research that you feel contradicts mine, I will consider it, but I may not be immediately available to study and analyze your research, and I ask for your understanding in this regard. I will not automatically substitute your research for mine.

If you possess source documents with definitive information, such as obituaries, death certificates, birth certificates, etc., the record will be corrected within a few days after I get your message, under normal circumstances. Please keep in mind that death certificates and obituaries often contain errors because the persons reporting the information on the deceased have the wrong information.

With regard to the biographies that I have written for some of my relatives, please remember that these biographies are copyrighted and may not be used in any other publication for any reason without my express written permission. You may, of course, use them in your personal genealogy database, provided that you credit me as follows: "written by Silver Rose Parnell at, all rights reserved." You do not need my permission to put a link on your web page that directs the reader to a findagrave page, unless Findagrave objects.

RE: William Michael Cocke
Thank you Silver. The "find a Grave" number is 8006430. I thought I read in your Bio. you had done a lot of research on the Cocke Family guess I was wrong. I sent an-email to the e-mail listed on William Michaels Cocke's Find a Grave but it came back. If you can't help me I will try sending him an e-mail again. Thank you for your reply. LaVonne Coke

Does your Marcus Clayton have any known siblings? My Clara Clayton is trying to pull back to Marcus Clayton being her brother.

Joseph Wentworth
RE: Leona Henrietta Merkel Wentworth Berry
Hi there,

glad to meet you! George C. Wentworth was my grandfathers brother. I have a few childhood pictures of him as well, but not much else. I have tryed in vain to find more info on him, but not having much luck. You can see from the links, I have the Wentworth tree traced pretty far back. I have plenty of data if youre interested in that.
I dont have any record of Children of George and Leona, but I know the boys were not that close in later years. I had interviewed my grandfather(Frank D.) before his death, and he made no mention of kids, but that doesnt mean they didnt exist. I wish I could get a hold of the other brothers(John R.) kin. They may have more data, but again, no luck yet. My email is

best of luck.

I went to Fort Donelson Cemetery today and they have no record of your 3rd gr-grandfather buried there. There is only one unknown grave in the cemetery. They didn't start the cemetery until well after the civil war ended. Your relative died the day before the surrender of General Buckner to General Grant. I also talked to the Fort Donelson Park person and she told me that several were buried in the "Dover Cemetery" however, looking through the Cemetery Records of Stewart County I still could not find his name. Dover Cemetery has several unknown graves in it. I'm sorry I couldn't be more help.

Kinkade-Angeles Rosedale
Hi Silver: Was doing some online research on this cemetery today and found an online index. I found your George Kinkade listed in Section H of the index. Also listed was a Carolina Kinkade in Section H. It might help you get the photo you want if you list the section in your request. Hope this helps. Chris
