Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been doing genealogy and cemetery research since 2000. My mother's family is from Sequoyah County, Oklahoma. I have done extensive research at several cemeteries around Sallisaw, Oklahoma.
My family names are Watts, Corley, Lamb, Tidwell and Woirtinek. My husband's family names are Ward, Jelks, Singer and Harris.

I will gladly transfer ownership of memorials which I have posted to their family members upon request following Findagrave's guidlines.
Please use the tools under edit to make requests, for transfers, corrections or changes. When making transfer requests please include the memorial number and your Findagrave membership number, also your degree of relationship.

If you have any questions or additional information about any of the memorials which I have posted that cannot be addressed through the requests forms please email me at

I would also ask the you please be considerate of all Findagrave Volunteers who spend many hours researching, walking cemeteries and adding information to Findagrave in an effort preserve history and make it easier for family researchers to locate the final resting places of their loved ones. Please remember that we are human, if you find a mistake on a memorial, please just send a request for a correction, and please be patient, we may not be able to immediately respond to your request but we will get to it as time allows. If you are impatient, rude or otherwise disrespectful it only reflects on you.

Memorial 31884620, Julian Salethia Hamilton Ellison and 82118556, Elijah L> Ellison
What a surprise when I found the pictures of my gr. great grandparent's, Julian Salethia Hamilton Ellison and Elijah L. Ellison, on FIND A GRAVE's web site. I researched the Hamilton and Ellison families from Georgia to Arkansas for several years consolidating the two families and their lineage. I visited their burial site at the Goodner Cemetery several years ago. From all of my research, it made me wonder what they must look like. NOW I KNOW. What a beautiful woman Julian is, just like her daughter Lucy Ann. There daughter, Lucy Ann Ellison Dickinson, is my gr. grandmother. She is buried in Blackland Cemetery, Little River CO, Arkansas.

Could you please tell me who edited their site to add their pictures. My thoughts were, someone out there very close to this family, might have pictures of them.

I would like to sponsor both of the web sites.

Re: 103614503 Oscar Arnold Hunter
I was trying to find my father in laws record and was only able to locate him by going thru his parents. Not sure what the deal is with that but it might be worth checking into. Also this is another of his obit's, he went by Arnold as an adult. Jackie, Becky, Rick and David are the children of his second wife Betty and we love them, but it would mean a lot of his biological children could be added to this record. I am the wife of his oldest son Oscar A Hunter, Jr. Thanks in advance - Carolea Hunter
