Bio and Links
Bio Photo In the early 1980's, I curiously began searching for my ancestors. It has gone from curiosity to a passion all consuming. There is always something new to discover!! I owe it all to my BFF, Geneva!!
For those of you who sit in front of a cemetery book or a newspaper obituary column copying deaths into a cemetery, I truly feel sorry for you. For those of you who complain about those of us who have "Unknown Burials". I believe the name of this program is "Find A Grave". The hopes of family researchers is that some one some where will FIND our lost ancestor and may even find a tombstone of that loved one. As for me, I am so proud that this site has come about where I can share my family with others and hopefully find long lost family that I would never have found otherwise. Thank you, FindAGrave.
If you come across someone I have entered in a cemetery that is your ancestor and you have pictures or a bio you would like to add, OR you would like a transfer, don't hesitate to contact me through the EDIT button.
NO death certificates on my memorials without first contacting me and getting my permission!!
Personal information should be kept personal.
VOLUNTEER PHOTOGRAPHERS: I appreciate your enthusiasm in taking pictures of cemeteries, BUT I DON'T appreciate additional tombstone photos on memorials when there is already a clear tombstone picture for that memorial.
FAMILY PHOTOS: I invite you to enjoy the family pictures posted, but ask that they not be copied and placed on any other website.

RE: Margaret West (#52746068)
Your welcome. Yes ma'am I am. My great-great grandfather was David & Margaret's son Jasper. Haven't had any luck locating his grave, and probably won't. My grandma thinks he was buried on their farm in Jesse, Oklahoma. I know that the farm was an oilfield later on. Jasper's wife Sarah is buried in Jesse Cemetery, but by the time of Jasper's death (we think around 1940, haven't found any records pertaining to his death, but my Grandma remembers him and she would've been 4 in 1940) the family had a lot more kids and probably couldn't afford to put him in a plot. Either that or he is beside her & there is no record.

Hello Kay, I work about a mile from there and I'll double check just to make sure, but when I photographed it I don't recall them but there are some sites marked with bricks and unreadable funeral home markers, maybe I can get the funeral home name off of one. The only funeral homes around there I know of is Dorman funeral home and Claybar funeral home.

I was happy to be able to find and photograph her marker for you. It is a joy for me to be outside in a cemetery on a sunny day.

His memorial in Cook Walden Capital Parks Cemetery & Mausoleum and Capital Memorial Gardens Cemetery are the same cemetery. I go to this cemetery every week and work on putting this memorial in, Capital parks was setting at 4500 Interments when I started, Now there are 17,886 interments.I don't put memorials in if I don't have a tombstone picture or death cert.

RE: Photo Request
Yes Mam, I put in the wrong one. Which I have removed. I knew that my g-g uncle Thomas Duncan (1847-1918) was married to a Francis B. Hamrick (1857-1918). And jumped in without matching up the dates. My Francis (note spelling on stone) looks like a daughter ? Anyway, I never found the earlier Frances. Terry Schoch.
