Bio Photo Hello,

My name is Paula Jackson. I am the mother of 2 wonderful children and a wife to a great hubby. I love animals, reading, writing stories, playing games, photography and bowling but most of all I love doing research and genealogy work.

I have been doing genealogy research, both for myself and professionally, since 1997. I have been a member of F-A-G for over a year but only recently (April 2011) have had the time and opportunity to become a serious volunteer. I think F-A-G is a wonderful place and my pledge is to help as many people as I can in getting pictures of stones. Even though I live in Owen County, I am willing to go to the counties that surround me which are: Clay, Greene, Monroe and Parke. I spend a lot of time each day putting up memorials, researching at the library and online for information to add to memorials and 2-3 days a week trying to fill photo requests. At times, it gets frustrating but mostly it is rewarding work.

Anyway, I will gladly transfer memorials if they aren't part of my family. Please send me an email with any request you have. My address is I check my email often and will make corrections as soon as I can. One thing I ask if there is an obituary or information that I have added to the memorial, PLEASE be courteuos and leave it there along with credit of me as the one who added it. I spend a lot of hours at the library hand-copying obituaries then typing them up. I also spend a lot of time researching on I really don't like the idea of my hard work being in vain. Thank you! :)

If you have time, please take a moment to visit my memorial for my mother Marjorie Shear. Thank you!!

Also please visit Baby Herschell. This baby has no family to tend to its grave. I found the grave overrun by weeds. My husband and I cleaned up the area and will continue to keep it nice. If you would leave a flower for him/her I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you!

Also if you could leave flowers for Bryan Haltom it would be greatly apprecaited. He was murdred at the age of 18 and the crime is still unsolved. Please read his story. Thank you!

Also, a visit to my memorial for PFC Brett Wood would also be appreciated. This young man died while fighting for our country. Thank you!

Also please visit these famous people whom f-a-g won't give credit to:

1. Cinematographer--Lauron Draper

2. Poet--William Herschell

3. Boxer--Ace Hudkins

4. Actor--Elderidge "Kit" Carson

5. Actor--John David Carson

6. Conductor--Dino Anagnost.

Thank you for your kindness, take care, God Bless You and happy hunting!! :o)

Strongheart Famous Dog
Dear Paula,

I love the work you are doing on Find a Grave. Please, please help me with some research I am doing on Strongheart.

Your entry on his memorial states that he was cremated and the ashes given to his owner. Can you direct me to any evidence of that?

Thank you so much.

I have some to show you and i am not sure how to say this but this is confusing to me until i figured it out some where there was a mistake made but i am sending you this, it has to do with Mildred Rebecca Sloan, I figured it out but it needs to be fixed if possible, here its,

Birth: Feb. 11, 1854
Columbia County
Wisconsin, USA
Death: Jun. 1, 1926
Owen County
Indiana, USA

He married Carolyn on Sept 17, 1876 in Owen Co, IN.

Cause of death: car accident

Family links:
John Slown (1810 - 1887)
Rebecca Owen Beem Sloan (1833 - 1914)

Carolyn Vandevier Sloan (1858 - 1908)*

Kenneth Kay Sloan (1883 - 1971)*
Herbert A. Sloan (1886 - 1974)*
Mildred Rebecca Sloan Page (1890 - 1986)*

this shows Mildred is actually Dr John and his wife children not John and Rebecca I am not sure what happened but I have this program called Legacy 8 i do not know if you know about this program or not and i when i put her name in it showed me that John and Carolyn Vandevier's daughter

Hi there! I believe we are related. SOMEHOW. My Newton family is from Lena and were related to Cora Ellen Kennedy Dickerson. Ellie is what they called her. She was married to Dwight Dickerson. Dwight was my Great uncle.
Dwight's sister Floy is my great grandmother. She married Foster Newton. Foster's parents are Nettie and Daniel Newton. Both buried in Calcutta.

Just wanted to say HELLO!

RE: Lemuel LeRoy Parrish
Thank you for the reply. It has been my rule that both spellings are correct. Sometimes the stone cutter makes a mistake. I'm related to persons of both spellings. I've had my DNA tested five times, to see and compare the results, and all have connected me to both spellings. Thanks for all your help. I'm a disabled vet who spends too much time doing genealogy. My degree is in anthropology with emphasis on migration. Genealogy, to me, is migration.

Thanks again.

Lemuel LeRoy Parrish
I'm Terrill Parrish, a distant relative of Lemuel. I think I found his grave in Cloverdale Cemetery #20007395. His last name is spelled with one "R", Parish. There is a photo of his grave marker.
When you have time would you take a look and let me know if this is the same person as you have listed.

Thank you.
