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.

Would it be possible to transfer this memorial to me? Thomas "TJ" Dean was my grandfather.

Thank you so much for the amazing work you've done!

Jacob B Mendenhall #83614877
Janet: Sorry for the confusion. The error is in Jacob Mendenhall's entry #83614877. Where it says "Wife #2" it shows name correctly as Venus Violet Lindsey, but then goes on to state: "(She is buried in Rose Hill Cem, Lawton, OK)" That's the tidbit of info that needs to be changed; she is buried in Rose Hill Cem, but in the Rose Hill Cemetery in Ardmore, Carter Co. OK -- NOT in LAWTON, OK. It's easy to miss the word "Lawton." Took me several readings to notice it.

[There may even be a Rose Hill Cem in Lawton; I don't know... e.g., there's a Rose Hill Cemetery in Tulsa, for on the death certif. for Venus' sister, Zoma Lindsey Barricklow, the clerk -- despite being clearly told Ardmore, Carter Co. OK -- entered burial site as Rose Hill Cemetery in Tulsa, OK. So I had to get a corrected death certif issued. That was the 2nd error on Zoma's death certif! It also showed her being BORN in 2002 and dying in 2002. We could not go forward with her probate proceedings until the death certif was fully corrected!]

RE: John & Mary Yeager
You're more than welcome. I'm born and raised in Archbold and was home recently visiting family. I have close up photos of both but wasn't sure how to post more than one. Happy to send you whatever I have if you are interested.

RE: Minnie Reeves in Rose Hill
Personally, I feel that family belongs with their family and I transfer accordingly. Sorry you don't feel that way. I will remember.
