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.

Thanks for the information about his obituary. I had not seen that information. I've added it to his memorial.

request to transfer #113828415
Hi, Janet.
Would you please transfer to me Memorial #113828415. Robert Armstrong is my great-great-grandfather and I have visited his marker in Niles, Ohio many times, and written a full bio of his life and times, both in Ireland and in the U.S.
I intend to link this memorial to more of his children and grand-children, who are in my direct line.
Thank you for your work in getting this started.
I look forward to hearing from you.
Many thanks,
Bill Armstrong

Im not necessarily looking to add to his memorial. I'm looking for a relative to share information about a hunting accident that involved him and my great grandfather who was killed in the accident in 1911 in Waldron, KS

RE: Watson Sherrif
Okay I changed the spelling of the last name to match the headstone. I also made a mention of the other spelling.

It's so frustrating as you know when people's names are spelled a couple of different ways.

Thanks for the help.
