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 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.

RE: Joel Neil Stillwell #74818160
Thanks, I'm so glad you will be able to go over to the cemetery and take the photo. And, also thanks for correcting the spelling of the name.

Joel Neil Stillwell #74818160
Janet, do you by any chance have a headstone photo that you could post to Joel's memorial. I see that you did post a photo to the memorial of her husband Trell Louis Still where they both our buried in the Abbey Mausoleum.
I did go ahead and put in a request, but there seems to be a very long list of unclaimed requests. If you can, it would be much appreciated.

Trell Louise Stillwell
Thanks for adding the additional information to Trell's memorial although an "l" was left off the spelling of the last name of Kenneth Trell Stillwell.
Thank you,

I have been thinking about the brother-in-law and decided there are 2 possibilities. Casey is either her mother's 2nd husband or his sister's husband. I don't show a Casey in his family though and don't know much about her family.

RE: Sgt James Wadlow
Thanks. I re-posted it. I have several other photos that include Wadlow in India and China, most of them brought home by my father after the war. Dad pointed out Wadlow to me in some of the pictures, so I am certain of the identity. They went to Karachi aboard the same ship and served together until Wadlow was killed in action. Dad said that he always thought Wadlow and the others on that mission must have died, but nobody ever told the squadron about it. It's sad that those men never knew what happened to their friends.

RE: Florence Burcaw Phillippi
Thank you for your quick response. I have been trying to clear up the misinformation on several sites. My husband is Ella phillippi' grandson. I have been researching his line for a couple of years. I would love to compare notes. I am stuck on Samuel Phillippi. Thanks, carole

Please change her father to Charles Henry Phillippi. It wasn't Charles Deacon Phillippe. I do have proof and would love to hear from you.
