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: Elsa Sviestins
Just need the dates updated. I'm wondering about the other person on her gravestone. Ethel Berenda was a social worker with a Masters of Social Work from OU. She died 10 years before Elsa.

Russell R. Rowan
Do you have any Information Regarding Mr.Russell R Rowan? My biological mother Anna Charlene Rone-Rowan(Maiden-Married)was married to a Russell R Rowan at the time of her death in 1960. According to the few records I have regarding her life they were married May 8,1955 in Tulsa,Oklahoma. I am NOT looking for my birth father. I was born to Ms Rone and B.D. Reedy in 1950. I just want to complete her Family history. DOb, DOD, and places would be most helpful.
Thank you
Lourinda Kay Reedy-Atha-Smith

Hello! I'm looking for a George W Winders and was wondering if you could tell me if the wife's name on the headstone is Nova? If so, George is my great uncle. Would like to help add more info.

Carl Schilling 95084575
Oops! About 10 months after you added the memorial for Carl Schilling I also added one, not realizing it was already done. The one I did includes his obituary and several links to relatives, memorial #110131591. I hate to double the work and add the links and pictures to yours and delete mine. I also realize I should have checked first so I will do that unless you prefer to delete yours. Let me know which I should do. Thanks for all the memorials you have created, it is appreciated by so many.
