Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm The Old Chief. That's because I'm relatively old and am a retired Navy Chief Petty Officer. I got into working with FindAGrave to enhance my work on our family tree through and as a way to get out of the house and get some exercise. Although my residence is in central Oklahoma I travel throughout this great country in my RV so you may see memorial and photo entries from various states.

I'm specifically interested in the names Stone, Weed, Davis, Jones, Berry as it pertains to our family in Oklahoma.

Also my wife's family: Hill, Rogers and Phillips.

TRANSFER REQUEST: If you see someone that is a member of your family and want that memorial changed to your account just ask. If I am not also related I will consider your request. (For transfer request that are outside the FAG guidelines I consider them on a case by case basis. If your profile shows you have MANY more memorials that you "manage" than you have actually done the work to add yourself then your out of guidelines request will probably be denied.)

When requesting a transfer please give your FAG contributor number AND how are you related to the individual. Please use the EDIT tab on the individual memorial page to request transfers. Also, permission is hereby granted to copy and reuse pictures of any grave marker that I have taken and posted on this site as long as they ARE NOT posted to a for profit site such as

RE: Opal Darbyshire Swope's Memorial
Dear Friend, could you please transfer this memorial over to me so that I can arrange the photos? If a closer relative to the Darbyshire's ever request that I transfer it over to them I will definitely do so. I just want to arrange the photos. They look terrible right now.

Thank you.

RE: Opal Swope
Dear Sir,

I have sent in to have Opal linked to her parents, and her spouse. Why has it not happened yet? It's been days, and days.

RE: Robert Yoder
Thanks that was fast, But someone else had already done Mr. Yoder's memorial so I had to delete mine. You might go ahead and post it on that one. Sorry about the mix up.

RE: Robert Yoder
He is not a family member, just someone who is helping someone else to pickup the memorials, so noone is missed and I did notify him of his duplicate. Thanks for your help.

Rick, You put the picture on the wrong memorial of #170414931, he duped me on #170382848. There shouldn't be a picture at all until the stone has a death date. Thanks, Sandy

I just wanted to say thank you so much for the photos you have submitted for these memorials. They were my Great Uncle and Great Aunt. I know that they would thank you too. I'm trying to get their daughter (Gerri Clifton) to look at the memorials for any suggestions. Sincerely, Mike

Hi Chief. Thank you so much for handeling so many of these memorials for so many of us. Our family is important and this is a way of keeping them. My Grandfather was Charles Millard Mayberry. I am fairly new at this and I don't want to interfere with what you have, but there are just a few I would like to managa. Charley Mayberry 98580214 would be one of those. I know the family history and almost anything anyone might want to know about him. I have family stories that people may care about and I would consider it a favor to transfer this one to me. Thank you sir, and thank you again for all your work. PS I did look under the edit tab and couldn't find where to add my request so it's here.
