I am a late bloomer as far as genealogy goes. I didn't start researching until 2009. So I'm still learning. My interest in Genealogy started with a visit to my niece's family tree. Then I was hooked. There was so much I didn't know about my family and a lot I still don't know. My family research includes the Smith, Pearce, Morgan, Riley, Fletcher and I think maybe the Peppers and Kincheloe.
RE: Thelma Canty #88360391 Sorry, but we do not link to people with unknown burial locations. We have made mention of her name in the bio, so the information about her mother is contained on Thelma's page.
"BUs" are supposed to be for recent deaths only, and updated with a burial location within 30 days. If FindAGrave ever starts deleting those older than 30 days, the links will be broken.
RE: McKee I'm surprised that Bernita McKee Young has not requested them. If you want to transfer them to me, I'll not stop you. I've found that when you have a short biography on the find-a-grave, you know whether of not you've found the right one. Can't believe how many have the same names and the same birthdays. I've only been doing this stuff a couple of months. It started out as just merging 2 lists together and then it became fun and now it's addicting. Appreciate your assistance. Thanks, Henrietta
RE: Orben Yocum You are so welcome. If you go to family search.org they have a picture of the wedding certificate and more details on there. Like they were married at the Allen home and C.W. Yocum signs for Orben and they were married in the presence of George Allen and C.W. Yocum. familysearch.org is great and its also free. I use them and ancestry.com together.
Oreben Youcm Hi I am doing my brother in law Ronnie Dean Yocum's tree. I found the marriage of Orben and Alice Elizabeth Allen Yocum and thought I would share it so you can add the date to Orben's memorial. Orben Franklin Yocum Name: Orben Yocum Event Type: Marriage Event Date: 02 May 1929 Event Place: , Custer, Oklahoma, United States Age: 19 Birth Year (Estimated): 1910 Spouse's Name: Alice Allen Spouse's Age: 18 Spouse's Birth Year (Estimated): 1911 "Oklahoma, County Marriages, 1890-1995," index and images, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/VXLX-VJM : accessed 20 Oct 2014), Orben Yocum and Alice Allen, 02 May 1929; citing p. 369, , Custer, Oklahoma, United States; FHL microfilm 1977350.
Stephen H. Waldon I have visited the office of Union Cemetery twice now to search for Steve, and they have no record of him at all, including in their cremation records. There is a Waldon family buried at Union, but Stephen seems to have no relationship to them. I will continue to search for him - I have checked with a couple local cemeteries to see if he was buried there with no luck. I will keep looking.
