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.

Lysander Whitlock
Thanks for the links for Lysander's parents, which I have added. His burial place was found in a online list of Leavenworth County burials organized by cemetery. What a find, as he had lived in Topeka such a short time, and the obit there wasn't specific about the name of the cemetery he was buried in.

RE: Sgt William H Schellenger
I haven't because there enough documentation to show where and when he was born.
Refer to the following site:

If you have any questions let me know and I'll attempt to answer them.

One more Stokes...
Also found Edith Stokes! (#24644839) All these Stokes were within a few rows from Leona. :-)

Possible Stokes relatives
I am about to upload photos of Leona Stokes at Fairmount Cemetery in Denver. But while out searching for her grave, I found very nearby a William A., Huldah, and James Stokes--all interred together. Their memorials were added and are, respectively, #174682383, #174682417, and #174682546. Hope this helps fill in some blanks if they are related to Leona!

Happy New Year,

Kenneth & Bobbie Walker
Thank you so much for accepting my edits and adding their obits. This helps me tremendously! I am related to Kenneth's side of the family who started out in Boyd County, Kentucky and managed to moved to Arkansas, Missouri & Oklahoma. I managed to find Kenneth's parents and two brothers (all are buried in Rose Hill) but I am stuck on where his brother Charles was buried. He died a day after his mother died in OK City in Jan of 1996. Since I don't live in the area, I am wondering if you have any suggestions on how I can access obits from The Oklahoman? I created a memorial for him and I am hoping that the obit will provide details of his burial so that I can properly place him. Thank you again. Best regards, Jamie Fink

Grave of: H. L. Farish
Hello Janet,
I sent you a direct email explaining that I have a piece of property that belonged to LtCdr Farish. My goal is to get this item to his next of kin.

I am a retired Marine and retired Police officer. I look forward to hearing from you. Thanks much, Steve

RE: Ferdinand Fishbeck
Wow....if you don't mind my asking, how did you find this out? I knew about the 1930 census, but not about a remarriage. Thank you for your help in this and I will contact the cemetery.
