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, Logan Co OK Genealogical 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.

RE: Caldonia Hunt
It was a pleasure. I was there looking for her mother so they were right next to each other. Caldonia's sister, Mary I. Couch Nichols, is my Great Great Grandmother.

All my best.

RE: l. William Earley
There are also a lot of cremains buried at Allegheny Cemetery, but I William Earley was not one of them. You are right about the number associated with Mr. Earley being a cremation date instead of a burial location.

Wow ... Very, very tough ... I thought it might say DEGENTE, but I cannot find any name like that in a census.

Maggie's daughter, Mary, is a relative of mine. She first married Dewey Claude Whaley and then was divorced. You have suppressed her new name; however, would you please disclose it to me in the obituary you have? I would like to find her. She was born in 1903 and is certainly deceased at this time. I can be reached at Thanks.
