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; Elizabeth Laird Claton
Good morning! My husband is a direct decendant of Elizabeth & Thomas Claton. Was wondering if I could use your information in our tree. Also would love to correspond with you sometime about the family. He is a direct decendant of John Cochran & Cynthia Claton.

RE: Elizabeth McLaughlin #19737034
Thank you for transferring the memorial. Even though I'm not a direct descendant (my aunt was married to John McLaughlin's grandson Aaron Reuck), I will "care for" her memorial and when I can get one of my aunt and uncle's children or grandchildren hooked on FindAGrave I will definitely transfer it to them. I sure wish I could just change John's memorial but I don't have management of his memorial and don't know who the person is who created it. If it's not corrected soon, I'll try to contact Find A Grave "powers that be" to see if they can have it corrected. I have the 1870 census but not the 1860 or the 1880. If you'd like to send them to me my e-mail address is . Thanks so much!
Bless you for being so nice!!

RE: Elizabeth McLaughlin #19737034
I was searching for my uncle's grandfather and discovered that whoever created the memorial for "James Robert McLaughlin" posted the name incorrectly. The person who is buried in Rose Hill Cemetery is John Robert McLaughlin the son of Samuel and Elizabeth. There is a death certificate for him at Missouri Digital Heritage and it gives the correct name, John Robert McLaughlin who was my uncle's grandfather. I sent a correction to the creator of the memorial but as of yet the memorial hasn't been corrected. After Samuel McLaughlin's death his wife Elizabeth came to Brookfield, Missouri and lived with her son John. The 1900 census taker misspelled the last name as McGlaughlin.

If you would like to update the memorial bio for Elizabeth McLaughlin you can get a lot of information from her death certificate. She died in Brookfield, Missouri while living with her son. Her death certificate can be viewed from this link:

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.
