Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born in Ardmore, Carter Co, OK where my husband jokingly says that I thought Noah's Ark had landed.

For thirty plus years I have been involved in genealogy. When my mother died, she left some notes about a few ancestors she had uncovered and hoped I would continue her research. That was the hook-in-the-jaw that changed my life. I only regret that I have missed out on so many years that I could have used. Alas, all those family stories that went in one ear and out the other, and all those family members who took so much information to the grave with them.

I am, however, thankful for the tools that are now available and for FindAGrave, a platform that I have spent many hours gaining from and contributing to.

If I have created a memorial for a member of your family, who isn't related to me, and you can add a biographical sketch I will be glad to transfer it to you. However, many have received a transfer/transfers & have never added anything. This isn't fair to kin who may come along later who can do so.

An exception to the above are my Bell, Dodson, & Love ancestors and kin, most of whom have numerous descendants. Much of the information contained in their memorials is the result of many years of tedious research, and as new information comes to light, I would like to be able to make those changes. For these memorials please follow FindAGrave guidelines for transfers.

Instructions for ALL REQUESTS for corrections, additional information, or transfers:

1. Go to the memorial page, which has an "Edit" tab located on the upper right side of the memorial.
2. Click on the "Edit" tab, then click on the Suggest a correction or provide additional information link, which opens a message page.
3. Type in your message.

Making a request this way insures that no mistakes are made, because it takes me to the exact memorial.

Thanks for your understanding.

Virginia, If you are interested in a couple more photos I have a close up of the Surname and also marker placement in the cemetery.The cemetery numbering system has changed and George and Mary are in Sec G, 4/9 and G 4/10 respectively. There is a map online for Oak Hill JOCY TN which is correct as far as plot placement in the cem. Val

Double Memorial
Hi Virginia,
I noticed you created a memorial for William Calvin Jones (# 125132819) in 2014. I also just noticed that there is one for Calvin Jones (# 17736816) created in 2007 that has the same birth and death dates. Do you think they could be the same person? I was out at Provence to try and do a photo request for William Calvin Jones and could not find that headstone but found Calvin Jones (same dates).

Thank you for your interest in their memorials. They are my direct ancestors, and I do not want to transfer their memorials. If you have family links to connect to them, I can do that if you send me they links.

Thank you for Your Work on FAG
Thank you for all of the work you have done on Find a Grave. It helps others who are searching for long lost loved ones.

More importantly, your mom would be so pleased about how much you have uncovered about your own family. By doing that, you have helped the rest of us in a huge way.
