Bio and Links
Bio Photo I became involved in this when I was off on medical leave. I try to take care of picture requests for the Parsons, Ks. and surrounding cemeteries.I spend a lot of time walking the cemeteries and getting information and photos for the memorials. It is always absolutely fine with me if you use any and all photos I have taken for your trees or personal family trees and you do not need to give any credits to me. It has always been my idea that if we, as genealogists, do not share our discoveries and work as one big family, we are just making it harder to complete our own personal history books. I will gladly transfer requests from relatives unless they are also my own relative. I love everything historical and Find-A-Grave is a wonderful gift to us wanting to preserve history. Happy hunting! btw... I wanted to bring new attention to the virtual cemeteries that I have created. They are fellow class members of the 1970's Parsons High School USD503 Kansas

Thanks a million for the grave photo of Robert Sprouse Whitaker! Very little was known about him after he left Yadkin County but I found his burial and thanks to you the family now has a photo.

Thank you Mark for the photo of my great great grandparents and their daughter Margaret headstone. I had called the cemetery years ago, and they weren't finding James buried with his wife Mary. The mystery is solved, and I can't thank you enough! Best, Denise Ilgenfritz-Thrasher

Thanks Mark!
I think either Bob Booker or Michael Smith on FB can be resources for obituaries.
