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.

Congratulations on the great detective work!

I was kinda proud of my deduction that Willie had to be buried in the "Mrs. Stillwelll" grave (# 86858001) in the lot with Mae's parents, but you have proven me wrong. And honest data always supersedes genealogical pride.

Now I am wondering what that cemetery record represents . . . . Did she lose a child in infancy? Is it in her name because it was after she divorced Willie? ??????

One other point . . . . I noticed that you had created a new memorial for Mae. There was already a bare-bones memorial (# 42467653). Her name was really Anna Mae, so they included the first initial. I already sent edit requests to update her birth & death locations (which I got right), but I also sent family links to her parents (which were right) and to her two spouses (one of which was WRONG). I have deleted the latter request and we can start fresh on that -- either you can do it or I will.

Thanks for catching my over-eager blunder, and have a great week!

RE: Memorial #27614388
You're going to sick of me, but I don't know how to look up a grave by the memorial #. I can't remove the flag pole picture unless you send the name. Sorry to be dragging this out. Thanks for being patient! So, all I need is the name

The flag pole is by the lake at the entrance of Fort Logan cemetery. I had another request for photos of the surrounding area to be included. I mistakingly added them to your request as well. I will remove them if you would like.

RE: Margie Lucille Williams Dumais
Hi Janet;
Thank you for updating Margie Williams Dumias' memorial. I have been searching for Andrew Jack Williams, but there too many of them with a birth year around 1903 to try to determine just which one is her father. I have searched family trying to find a marriage record for her parents with no luck. With the oldest child being born in Arkansas about 1924 I was hoping I could find some kind of marriage record around 1921-23 time frame.

I got the Rison, Cleveland County Arkansas place of birth from her original SS application.

TAhank you again.

The headstone reads Josephine N. Dickinson. She is the step mother of 57511653, not his spouse. 57803767 is the 2nd wife of 88502671, Woodbury Dickinson. Please look at his 1910 Census. That census also shows they had two young children at that time.
