Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am retired and enjoy working on genealogy as a hobby. I have a masters degree from the University of Oklahoma and I'm using my research skills to hunt down my ancestors. is a terrific web site.
My ancestors include but are not limited to:
Allison, Campbell, Morris, Johnson, Holdsworth, Baird, Kirkpatrick, Phillippi, Worley, Sweeney, Vaught, Watson, Dale, Wheeler, Hoyt, Newman

I make an effort to connect husbands, wives and families using obituaries and census records.

As many of you know, I have spent hours taking photos in the Rose Hill Burial Park in Oklahoma City in order to create memorials. I also do research in the Oklahoma Historical Society Library for some of my memorials.

Member: Oklahoma Historical Society, National Trust for Historic Preservation, Civil War Trust, Friends of Mt Vernon, Colonial Williamsburg Foundation, National Women's History Museum, Pulaski Co KY Historical Society, Cornerstone Genealogical Society (PA), Morrow Co OH Genealogical Society, Osborne Co KS Historical Society.

Use the "Suggest a Correction" feature on the appropriate memorial to submit information or any requests. I follow the Find-A-Grave guidelines regarding the transfer of memorials. Any transfer requests should only be for direct relatives within four generations. This would be siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.

My photos may be used in your family trees. They are not to be used in cemetery books/CDs
that are to be sold.

RE: Dennis Flood
He is my great uncle -- my mother's uncle on her mother's side. I remember him from family reunions.
I am trying to coordinate all of the family memorials on findagrave. Root surnames include Flood, Laflin, and McKinney (among others).

RE: Dennis Flood
Thanks. I finally have it now about the siblings. Can you transfer this memorial over to me and any of his relatives that you manage as well?

RE: Annabelle Shockley Barger
Many thanks, Janet! I would be happy to send you a copy of her death certificate, if you will send me your email. Annabelle (or Anna Belle) is my great-grandmother, which makes you and I third cousins, if I'm not mistaken! Have you been able to find out any details on our gr-gr-grandfather, Phillip Shockley, such as the name of his mother (I have his father as Joshua Shockley)? Is there a way to send private messages on Find-a-Grave?

RE: Annabelle Shockley Barger
Hi Janet,

Sorry it took me so long to respond. I sent away for my grandmother's death certificate. As expected, it shows her parents to be Phillip S. Shockley and Sarah Shockley. I cannot find a record of whether her cremains were interred. According to her death certificate, she was cremated at Forest Lawn Crematory. Forest Lawn, as you may know, is the most well known of all cemeteries in L.A. Unfortunately, Find-a-Grave does not have a record of my gr-grandmo being buried there and the website currently is down.

Hi Janet,

Really appreciate your feedback regarding the Memorials I've created. I believe that all corrections have been made and requested info added. I do really appreciate the transfer of my great-grandmother's Memorial.
