Bio and Links
Bio Photo I visited Find-A-Grave for years filling in blanks on my family tree. Now that I am retired, I decided to become a contributor too. I want to "pay it forward" by helping others find their relatives buried here in central Oklahoma.

I look at Find-a-Grave as my new "job" because I get to work with people who have a common purpose and love of what they are doing. I have found friends and unknown cousins here and hope to find more! The 99% of helpful, friendly, and cooperative people I find here more than out weigh the three people I have run into who are vicious and hateful. You will run into them, but know they are the minority here.


1. Take a photo of the entire tombstone first, then get a close-up of the name if it is hard to read on the whole view. Try to fill the frame with the stone and not the surrounding countryside, homes, cars, etc.
2. Look for your reflection in the tombstone BEFORE you take the picture! Stand to the side to prevent reflection.
3. Squat in order to get on the same level as the tombstone - don't stand and shoot down at a sharp angle.
4. If the stone is vertical, take the picture vertically - it will display on the memorial much larger than horizontally. PLEASE DO NOT put the picture up sideways!!! If you don't know how to turn it, ask me and I will try to help.

We are trying to preserve history so we want the very best pictures possible - it may be all that survives!

** My photos may be used for any nonprofit purpose - ONLY IF - you give credit by listing your source so others can find it. Noting the source INCLUDES the photographer's name, and the Find-a-Grave memorial number or website.**
GENEALOGY - I am very interested in meeting more cousins! If any one is related to persons in my family I would greatly appreciate you contacting me.

Some of my family surnames:
KENTUCKY - Durrett, Skaggs, Pierce, Bloyd, Thompson, Cantrell, Elmore, Chaudoin
ILLINOIS - Mingee, Thornton, Gilreath, McNeese, Harris, Strader, McCrady

Sorry for the delay in finding this grave site. With the help of the cemetery personnel, I finally found it but, as you can see, the marker is overturned with the inscription face down.

RE: Blanton's
Thank you sweetheart anyway, about offering to transfer memorials for me. I'm not yet sure if or how Lillian may be kin to me. I'm sorry that you have had F.A.G. members to be rude to you. That's not what we are suppose to be about. If there is anything I can help you with here on F.A.G please contact me and feel free to contact me thru my email as well.

RE: Kenneth Blanton
Thanks for transferring my dad over to me. Would it also be possible to get 65084207 Iris Blanton too? She is my dad's sister, both of them are buried in Cave Hill Cemetery in Louisville
