Bio and Links
Bio Photo My interest in documenting cemetery headstones began with using Find-A-Grave and other online resources as tools for my own research. Since I love creating and working with databases, digital photography and genealogy, what better combination!

I've been researching my own family history for over 40 years and have authored and self published over 8 volumes of my family's history. These volumes contain hundreds of family surnames. Although most of my family lines stop at the water's edge, many others are connected back into medieval mists in both the UK and continental Europe.

I've taken adult and college level genealogy classes and have taught genealogy at local senior centers. I'm a member of the New England Historic Genealogical Society, Historic Northampton, and the Silicon Valley Genealogical Computer Group. I'm a life member of both the Parsons and Strong Family Associations of New England. Currently, I'm the Historian for the Parsons Family Association.

In my research, if I can't find the information I'm looking for in my own reference library, I have access to 4 excellent genealogical libraries in the area and many online tools.

Please submit any additions, corrections, biographies, or family links to me under "Suggest a correction or provide additional information" on the memorial page. I'm more than happy to make corrections and add relationship links to memorials under my control. Please be assured, I do most updates, corrections and links within a day or so.

Edits awaiting your approval

I sent you an email to the address you have listed on your member profile page ( and it was returned to me as undeliverable, so it appears to be a dead email address.

Are you still active on Find A Grave?

Can you check your EDITS tab (located in the upper right hand corner of your profile page) and process the edits that are awaiting your approval?

RE: Photos
Quite alright!

I have used Find-a-Grave quite a bit myself and this is a way repayment for the photos I have received.

Iím working on a listing for all the headstones in the nine cemeteries and two private burial grounds here in Conway.

Let me know if there are others.

RE: James & Margie Reeves
Fort Rosecrans is an immense National Cemetery on the top of Point Loma overlooking the Bay of San Diego, the Coronado Naval Air Station, and the Pacific Ocean. It is breathtakingly beautiful. The La Vista Cemetery is a small, private very old cemetery in National City started in 1865. There are some Civil War Military buried there, but don't know of any connection to Fort Rosecrans.
You are welcome for the photos, we always look forward to a request for Fort Rosecrans.

Prefix "MRS"
Please only use this prefix when the first name of a woman is not known, like Mrs. John Doe. Otherwise it makes no sense, see naming convention of this site. Thank you.
