Matthew D Smithson
Good afternoon Barbara,
A friend of mine who likes to hike in the Southern California desert areas found a remote grave. He photographed it and then gave me the photos, since he knows of my F.A.G. membership.
You are about the only person I have come across that has any Smithsons in Oklahoma & California. From what I have gathered on Ancestry, FamilySearch and Google...Matthew D. Smithson was born 29 Dec 1879 in Norman, Oklahoma and died 7 Apr 1941 in White Water, Riverside, California.
I have not yet found a reason why he is buried in such a remote location. I have him as a Boarder in the 1930 census in San Gabriel, California...also as a resident in Trabuco, California and Norman, Oklahoma. I also have found the Calfornia Death Index record...

Does this Smithson sound like someone who might be part of your Family Tree? He is the only Smithson in my list of memorials...

James William Gilpin

Yes, James was married to my cousin Louvina Livesay. His parents are in Piney Grove Cemetery, John A. Gilpin 3/11/1835 - 5/27/1916 and Martha J. Nevis 5/3/1841 - 1/15/1926

I have submitted to Find A Grave to link all three of these together to help others.

Henson family
It appears we are related -- your William Leonard was the older brother of my gr. grandfather, Hiram F. Henson [1832-1869]. I have only recently found this site and am having a difficult time accomplishing anything else. :D Thank you for all your hard work in providing info for others. Note: that is my note below about Clifford Piper. My mother was Ona M. Henson Piper, dau. of James Thomas Henson. dk

Red Top
I am working on adding photos for all the memorials in Red Top cemetery, Hallsville, Missouri. (It will take me a while to finish) I noticed that you left flowers for some of the Schooler family buried there and thought you might be interested in those and maybe other families as well.

Please keep my family in your prayers following the loss of my uncle Franklin Rogers, who passed away yesterday from cancer. If you have time I would appreciate virtual flowers for his Find A Grave memorial 128627148. I am very blessed to have my friends on this site. Thank you,

Thank you so much for the transfer, we will get right to work.

Added by Simmons Family on Feb 05, 2014 11:39 PM

A million Thanks!
How thoughtful of you to add a flower to my sister's Memorial (Dovie Jean Ashley Gordon).
Jeannie had a rough row to hoe in life. She was run-over by a car when she was four years old and had extensive surgery on her arm and hand. At age seven, she was sitting on Mom's lap when Mom died in the car crash. Jeannie had a severe concussion and was hospitalized for quite awhile then, too.

I see you left a flower for Dad. Check out the picture I posted for him this a.m. It is precious!


Added by Azalea on Jan 29, 2014 11:15 AM

Thank-you, Barbara. I know you did. You did such a lovely memorial for her and you may never know how healing that was for me when I first saw it. The Memorial will remain the same.
Much Love,

Added by Azalea on Jan 28, 2014 10:05 PM

Hi Barbara,
What a lovely Memorial you created for my sister!
My gosh, look at all the flowers and notes! When I found it I was inspired to get involved, too.

Can you please add her father 124234166 David Jefferson Ashley, and mother Beryl Inez Duval Ashley 116028005 or transfer the account to me?

Much Love,
p.s. Your prayers have been answered for me.

RE: Re: your dog
Thank you! I pray Lola gets justice, but the drug users/abusers have their way in this town... budget cuts have left us with NO animal control officer...and the law enforcement is WORTHLESS!!!
I believe that GOD will take care of justice.
