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

RE: Photo for grave of Alexander Graham
Thank you for your reply. I would be so pleased if you can send me the photos. I would gladly go through them in search for an Alex Graham. I do know the plot as received from the hospital -Plot - Row 7 #359, but am guessing you do not have photos linked to those numbers. That is fine - I will search!
I always like to look out for the single, no descendants members of my family, and would love to have Alex's grave marker posted. If you are a Dropbox user and want to just send me a link to them there that would be great, or as you wish.
Just today, I got confirmation of the date Alex entered Parson's. I will update his memorial shortly.

Photo for grave of Alexander Graham
Dear Mark,
I see that you have taken many photos at Parsons State Hospital Cemetery. I would be so pleased if you could take a photo of the name plate for Alexander Graham, a cousin of mine. I would also like to see a photo of the surrounding area, if possible. The location is Plot - Row 7 #359. Alex's memorial is Find A Grave Memorial# 65514871. I like you am so pleased that we have Find A Grave.My thanks for all that you do to remember these.
