Bio Photo Capt Lonnie Ray Hoover
Unites States Marine Corps

I have been researching my family tree for over 30 years. I have over 50,000 relatives in my Ancestry.com tree.
My wife and I have sold our ranch and are now living in an RV. We will be on the road for at least three or four years, I want to visit and photograph all the cemeteries where my relatives are buried. My roots start in Virginia and North Carolina, I am starting there and working my way west.
One of my projects was to HONOR my fellow Veterans who are no longer with us, by photographing the over 20,000 memorials in the Fort Gibson National Cemetery, Ft Gibson, Oklahoma, to date I have taken photos of over 19,000 stones and added most to findagrave, then I went back, added wives and deleted all duplicates.
If I am managing one of your relatives, and they are not in my family tree, contact me and I will transfer it to you, no questions ask. Feel free to use any photo I have posted to Find A Grave, that's why I do this.
I research the family lines of my grandparents, WALSTON, LAWRENCE, WILLIS and HOOVER.

Britton Web Jr 1907-1978 Memorial 62006679
I think you may have this Britton connected with the wrong parents. It does not make sense for them to have a son Britton born 1907 and another Brittain born 1910.

Since the one born/died 1910 had their names mentioned on the headstone, I think he is correctly the son of Britton and Ada Webb.

The other Britton Webb is probably the son of James Walter Webb 1874-1949 and Minnie Little 1881-1947; he was born in about 1908 per the 1920, 1930, and 1940 census showing him living with them.

Thanx.

Sir,

I want to thank you for your contribution to the site and adding the picture of my father's grave, it means a lot to me having no time to be able to see it myself. I really do appreciate it.

Thanks
I just read your bio to see if it was okay to use a photo you had added to a memorial. And I just wanted to say thank you for what you are doing. How much something as simple as a photograph can mean to someone. Some volunteers don't want their photos used without asking and then credit being given. Thank goodness for the ones like you who are wanting to help others. May you be Blessed and continue the good work.

RE: Fort Bliss:
Lonnie,
Would it be possible for you to let me know the other sections at Fort Bliss that you will be working on?
I have a list of about a thousand on my “to do list”, and don’t want to duplicate your work.
Pam Worley (Sherlocks Cousin (#47232933) also is very active at Fort Bliss and I will let her know of your plans.
Thank you,
Charles Bowman (#48056252)

Hi Lonnie! Thanks for taking such a phenominal picture of my father's headstone! I noticed in your bio that you are willing to transfer if the person is not one of your relatives. If Lawrence isn't related to you, I would love to take over. I'm unsure of how the process works. His # is 1194224 at Fort Gibson National Cemetery. Let me know what I need to do. Thanks again for all of your hard work! Karen
