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 your family, who isn't related to me, and YOU CAN ADD INFORMATION TO THEIR BIO (not just family links), 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.

You're welcome. Credit wasn't necessary, I'm happy knowing that I may have helped future searchers with their quest, but thank you.

Thanks for moving her, etc. I see you have some connection to White Lake Cemetery, too. Have you ever visited there?

Are my grandparents. How do you fit into the Whitaker line? With the Love family, I'm sure we are related somehow.

RE: David Counts
Virginia, I a new at posting on find a grave, so just learning as I go. I appreciate any suggestions you can give. You have certainly done a lot of great work! Finding the Reynolds cemetery, with such nice tombstones for David, Tennessee Counts and James, Tempie Arnott was a big, very nice surprise.

RE: James Monroe & Ailcey Dickenson
Hi. You are welcome to use the photos I posted
on your memorials. I hadn't noticed that there were duplicate memorials when I added the photos. Since you have so much information etc on your memorials, you could also contact the person who put on the other memorials and have them transferred to you or deleted. Cheryl

Oh, I believe there are more spouses, too. But, that is the one she had when she passed.

Hi Virginia, That bit of info you gave me helped me find her and who she married. Here is a memorial for her and I have requested links and requested name to be corrected with her middle initial and maiden name.

Dorothy/Dorthy R Love
Hi Virginia, I was looking at my family tree. Could you tell me when Dorothy R. Love, George and Nettie's daughter passed away. I have records up to her being 13 and then it disappears.
