Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a single (44 years old) mother of a 22 year old daughter. She is Princessrugrat on here.

I have a deep love for cemeteries. I love the art, the history, and the untold stories about each resident. I find it peaceful and thoroughly relaxing to walk through cemeteries. I'm working on several but the main one at the moment is Oak Grove Cemetery in Conway, Faulkner County, Arkansas.

I am a member of the organization called Preservation of African American Cemeteries
(PAAC).

I was born and raised here in Arkansas as were both of my parents and all of my grandparents.I started searching my genealogy in the Sixth Grade as a project and haven't stopped since.

Hi Debbie. It's Ghost Girl. Remember this cold case? You worked hard to get her on the stroll? She has completely disappeared from Find A Grave!!! I have no idea what happened. Of course I inquired with a administrator months ago but have not heard back. I was hoping you could get involved to see what happened. Strange indeed.

William Birchett
I noticed that you were searching for the tomb stone of William Birchett. He is in my niece's ancestry (thru marriage), and there are 2 William Birchetts buried at Cypress Valley just east of Vilonia. WTJ Birchett 1857-1935 has a stone and is listed on Find a Grave; however, his son WTJ Birchett (1900-1979) is buried there, but no picture has been made of his headstone. I am sure he William Thomas J Birchett, Jr. is buried pretty close or in the area of his father. Please let me know if I can help you further. By the way, William Thomas J Birchett was a half brother to my niece's husband's grandmother (confusing enough!). His grandmother was Izora Birchett, a daughter of WTJ Birchett and 1st wife. Feel free to contact me if I can help you any more. When the weather cools up, I would be happy to go over there and look around for you if you don't live that close.

Whitman Ward Cemetery Location
Hi Libbey,

I contacted the guy who uploaded the burial details last year for the 14 people at this cemetery (user name Phil), but he would not reply. I'm trying to find the location of this cemetery. The cemetery profile has some info, but those directions are ambiguous, and everyone I speak with isn't sure where, exactly, that location is. My great great grandmother is buried there. Would you know (or know anyone) who can find that cemetery? Thanks in advance for any help you can offer!

RE: Kattie Mayo, Ola, AR
Thanks. She was my husbands grandfathers birth mother and we really don't much about her except we believe she was of Indian decent.

I know this may sound strange, but do you by any chance know any of the family of Kattie Mayo Find A Grave Memorial# 103644772 buried in Sandlin Cemetery in Ola, Yell County?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Nancy Cook

RE: Robinson & Duke Cemeteries
Here is the Website for the Arkansas Gravestone Project. We do basically what you are doing for Find A Grave but I also upload my photo not just to Find A Grave but this website as well. Hope this helps. It's free to become a volunteer.

Thanks for transferring Kelly's memorial page over to me. That was very nice of you to take the time to put it together.

RE: Robinson & Duke Cemeteries
Libby you might want to let Tootie of the Arkansas Gravestone Project know this then. That why we can respect their privacy at the Duke Cemetery located next to the school. Thanks for educating me on the Hartje Cemetery I had a hunch it was when I saw that a Duke had married into the Hartje family. I have been keeping the Hartje cemetery up to date.

I have a certain part of Robinson Cemetery logged already on here. I would like to finish it to honor the veterans who are buried there. One Veteran's grave the marker is facing the hedges so I had to really try to get a picture of that one. I want to try and finish Robinson because I want to help others do their family trees as well as get pictures of the stones before that are too far gone to read. So I do this to help preserve. Thank you for sharing that info. I have some mullatos in my Mack family as well as the Bilbo and other branches of my family. So I understand where you are coming from.
