Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have worked in a refugee resettlement center, been a carpenter, rode bulls before I grew a brain, PC tech, a Animatronic Tech (Animation electronics......robots) in the carnival business. Now I work as a inventory control specialist.I grew up in Dallas and now live in Wolfe City, Texas.

I am researching the Familes of Long Creek Cemetery, Sunnyvale, Dallas Co., Tx; the decendants of Hiram Bennett, and the Town of Scyene (now part of Dallas), Texas. I am working on Rylie Cemetery and Lyons Cemetery burial families also. I have recently started a facebook group in a effort to coordinate volunteers in an effort to photograph Grove Hill Memorial Park, Dallas, Texas.

If there is information you want to add or correct for anyone I have entered please contact me with the Suggest Correction option under the Edit tab. Transfers are done according to findagrave guidelines. Photos can be added without transfer and I will make family links and add bios sent to me by "Edit" options. Anyone one wanting to manage any of the IOOF Norman Cemetery memorials I have posted please let me know!
I HAVE FREELY TAKEN AND POSTED PHOTOGRAPHS ON THIS SITE. I do not claim copyright to anything I have posted for use in any noncommercial reason, credit is nice but it is not why I do this!

John T. Mayfield l# 34736850
Dear Robert Bennett,
Finally, John T. Mayfield is located. I guess the family left Missouri for the land rush in Oklahoma.

John T. is the favored brother of my husband's 2X great grandmother Sarah Evlyn (Mayfield) Jenkins.

I am asking for the privilege of caring for John T.'s findagrave memorial.

Lee Ann Fox-Tande - Norman IOOF Cemetery
You requested a photo and I have taken one but they have not added her death date to the marker yet with Tommy Fox. Do you want me to post the photo or wait until a date is added? There is a photo of the marker on Tommy Fox's memorial. -Jan

Sideshow Addition (if you choose)
Find A Grave Memorial# 71356943 is Andrew John Stuertz. Some records indicate June 4, 1892 birth, while others list June 4, 1893. I will base his age on the 1893 date since that is what his gravestone reads as well as census records.

1907 worked as Tattooed Boy for T.E. Caffrey's Imperial Dog and Vaudeville Show. (age 13 to 14)

1908 worked as Youngest Tattooed Person with the Gollmer Brothers Sideshow. (age 14 to 15)

1909-1912 worked as Tattooed Boy with the Hagenbeck-Wallace Shows. (age 15 to 19)

1913-1917 worked as Tattooed Man with the Barnum & Bailey Circus. (age 19 to 24)

Andrew then left the sideshow life to become a tattoo artist. He died on May 15, 1962 at age 68.

Here is a link to a picture off the internet of Andrew Stuertz about age 13 being tattooed by Charlie Wagner. I am not sure who would hold the copyright on this. Thank you for your consideration of this addition to your sideshow virtual cemetery.
