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 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.

If you send a request for transfer of a memorial, please explain exactly how you descend, generation-by-generation, from that person.

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

JANET, JUST QUICKLY, THAT ADDRESS OF 1115 E ST., S.W. IS IN FACT IN WASHINGTON, DC. BETWEEN 11TH & 12TH ST., S.W. THE REASON I'M SURE IS BECAUSE I WAS BORN AND RAISED IN THAT NEIGHBORHOOD. IT WAS DOWN BY THE WHARF AND THE WHOLESALE MARKET.

Charlie K Fewkes
Please tell me you are related to him. I need to get ahold of his daughter Sharon. In an estate sale back here in Ridgefarm, Illinois my brother got a bunch of photos, included among them is a birth certificate (really sweet one) for Sharon Marie. Also there are Sweet family photos. I am trying to find someone who would be interested in them. Thanks. Jim

RE: MARY ANN BALL DONALDSON
JANET, I AM QUITE POSITIVE THIS IS THE SAME PERSON. NOTE ON THE PLAQUE HER YEAR OF BIRTH IS 1897 AND IS BURIED IN THE BALL FAMILY CEMETERY ALONG WITH HER HUSBAND JAMES DONALDSON WHO IS LISTED JUST BELOW HER NAME. THIS COINCIDES WITH THE PLACE OF BURIAL (BALL X ROADS, VA.). ALSO IF YOU WERE TO CHECK BOYD'S DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA CITY DIRECTORY FOR 1897 YOU WOULD FIND THAT JAMES E DONALDSON(ONE OF HER SONS) LIVES AT 1115 E ST., S.W. WHICH IS THE PLACE OF HER DEATH.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT ELSE I CAN SAY TO CONVINCE YOU THAT THEY ARE ONE AND THE SAME.

LOOKING FORWARD TO HEARING FROM YOU

JANET, I HAVE ATTACHED A COPY OF THE DEATH CERTIFICATE FOR MARY ANN BALL DONALDSON.I THOUGHT THIS WOULD BE AN EASIER ACCESS FOR YOU TO SEE THE INFORMATION. AFTER CHECKING IT OUT YOU MAY WANT TO EITHER LEAVE IT OR REMOVE IT. I DID NOTICE THAT HER DEATH INSCRIPTION HAS A DIFFERENT BIRTH YEAR AND YOUR "BALLS OF THE POTOMAC" HAS A THIRD DATE. GOOD LUCK ON THAT

HOPE THIS HELPS
