I've been working on family history for several years, researching the following names: Brown, Nagel, Cox, Serfoss, Lambley, Ford, Vaughn, Poage, Gagnebin, Calame as well as my husband's side, Campbell, Gillenwaters, Stickley, Husted, Jackson, Rankin, Wallace and Lyon and many others.
I enjoy exploring cemeteries and researching genealogy, which like so many others on this site, is how I discovered Find A Grave. I was extremely excited to find pictures of ancestor's headstones that are located too far away for me to visit in person. Thanks to the many volunteers here, I have discovered a lot of information to add to my files. I have now added contributing photos here as a way to help others in their own searching.
My husband and I have been happily married for 33 years. We have 2 children and 5 grandchildren. It is my hope to have everything in place so one day if any of them are interested in their ancestry, it will all be there waiting for them at the click of a button.
We live in Northwest Oklahoma. If anyone has any requests for this area, please feel free to contact me. I am happy to help!
Otter Creek Cemetery Cheryl I am so sorry for the delay in answering you. I have had some nasty computer problems. I was so amazed and so happy to see the condition of the cemetery. It was totally forlorn and forgotten the two times that I visited some time ago, and in fact we had a hard time locating it. It has obviously been taken under someones care and cleaned up, stones cleared and cleaned. At any rate, thank you SO much for your photos and your work on this. I appreciate it as do, I am sure, other descendants of the inhabitants !
Find A Grave Memorial# 97959368 Thank you so much Cheryl for the beautiful photo that you have uploaded to Carl's memorial today. Wonder if I may ask if it would be okay to use your photo on my Ancestry account and give you full credit for the photo?
