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.
www.findagrave.com 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 Cemetery 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.

Elizabeth and William Allison
Do you know if they are buried in an Allison plot? Do they have other relatives in Mt. Royal?
Please let me know and I'll continue to check.

Christopher Thomas Dale
I have a copy of the funeral card for Christopher Thomas Dale and his wife Esther Rosan Johnston Dale. All dates match your dates. They are buried in the Kinburn Cemetery not Clinton cemetery. Kinburn is about 6 miles NE of Clinton. Christopher was the Great Grandfather of my sister-in-law. She has passed away. My brother gave me this copy. Hope this info might help you.

RE: Correction to parents of Jonathan Tressler
I called my sister who has the birth certificates and dates of marriage for the Tressler family. She is going to put together the chronology of their lives so you (and I) have a better picture of this family's genealogy. The problem with researching is that there are a lot of people with the same names and it is easy to mix them up so we have to go by their birth, marriage and death dates to make sure we have the right people. If you give me your email address I will forward the genealogy to you as soon as my sister sends it to me (should be later today).
I hope this will help. My email address is "stitchworksbyanne@gmail.com", so you know I am sending it to you.

Thanks for your help in correcting the information.

RE: Charla Myrtle Montgomery MCBEE
OK, great. I was afraid it was because I added Myrt, which is what direct family members called her.

Thanks!

RE: Correction to parents of Jonathan Tressler
Yes, Mary Ann Allison is the same person as Ann Hargrave. She had two husbands, Hargrave and Allison.

memorial 79388341
Dear Janet,
John A. Floyd Thomson 79388341 was the son of Anna E. Thomson. Anna's husband, Henry W. Thomson, is buried in Atlanta. One census indicated that they were divorced, and he lived away from Anna for a long time prior to his death.
Thank you,
Donna

Correction to parents of Jonathan Tressler
Find A Grave Memorial No. 41178374. I just talked to my sister who has a copy of the Tressler Family Bible Family History pages. Jonathan's parents were William E. Tressler and Martha J. Campbell. Ann Hargrave (some say Hargrove) but her death certificate confirms Hargrave, is Mary Ann Campbell Allison. Ann is a step sister to the Allison children, thereby related to President McKinley through her step-sister.

Please correct the information about Jonathan's parents so it does not confuse any other family members looking for information.
