Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been doing family research for over 30 years. My families are Orbin, Collins, Tiller, Miles, Smith, Swallow, Hill, Schunk, Keown/Cowan/Cowen, Grable, Haney, Hines, Howard, Riley, Lee, Leatherman. I am also doing my husbands side Neeson, Brooks, Beamer, Herring/Herron, Carman, Egglestone, Vincent, Sanders, and so many others. I was born in Macon, Missouri and lived there till I was 10. Then we moved to Columbia and then moved to Bevier when I was 13. I have several family members still in Macon, Bevier, Kaseyville and all over Macon County.
I have been interested in my family for as long as can remember. The Titanic has always been a special interest of mine and as a child I discovered that my Grandma Mae and Grandpa Smith were alive when this happened all of a suddenly history became real and not a story so I started my family research. My Grandpa Smith wanted to know about his father's and mother's family so I began digging. The joy on my Grandpa's face when I found something new still keeps me looking after his death hoping to bring joy to someone else searching for family.
I do find a grave so family members can find each other. No one deserves to be forgotten.
Any photo I take of headstones can be used by anyone who is doing a family project.

RE: Parks gravestone
Thanks for adding the info to Andrew Parks' page. I do have a little more info on him. He was a brother to my 3rd great-grandfather Nathan Gilbert Parks Sr. (whose daughter married a Welch), and Andrew and Nathan's parents were John and Elizabeth Parks, burial location unknown. Someone created a memorial page on Find a Grave for John Parks anyway, though, and his other three children are linked to it. His number is 52196198 if you would like to link Andrew. Thank you, Karen Welch

Parks gravestone
I think the gravestone for Parks, #107599795, may be that of Andrew B. Parks. The birth and death years match, and I have his wife's name down as Serelda, Zerelda, or some similar spelling (you have a memorial page for a Zeralda Parks in the same cemetery with the same style gravestone). I can't make out the first name from the gravestone photo, and apparently it was difficult for you to read also, but could it be Andrew? Thank you, Karen

Could I have ownership of this memorial? She was a dear friend and I just came upon the memorial. Thank you.

Hi Penny,
You have the wrong picture posted on this memorial. Would you mind deleting it?

I'll bet you're looking forward to spring as much as I am!

Hi Penny,
Thank you VERY much for the transfer of Jesse's memorial. You have made my day! I hope someone does something nice for you in return.
Best regards,

RE: Amanda Lewis
Thanks so much for your response. Genealogy is very confusing at best and almost impossible at other times. It's just a giant puzzle with each person representing another piece. If only the pieces would come together a little easier. But, then that's the thrill of research.
Have a great day.

E.C. Stainsky
Hi! I saw that you must be somewhat related to Eugene C. Stainsky, by your Find-A-Grave memorials. Found a really cool auction on eBay for his ID badge from WWII, and thought you might know a close relative that it might interest! Thanks!
