Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a mother of 5 ranging from the ages of 25 down to 12. I also have two grandsons ages 5 and 4 and a granddaughter 8mo. I have just recently moved to Oklahoma from Arizona, where I had spent all of my life, so this was a big change for me. I have been into genealogy for about 11 years now. Since finding this find a Grave website I have been able to add much information to my history and even been in contact with with long long long relatives. I enjoy spending time walking the cemeteries and taking photos for the memorials, but my purpose is not to have "ownership" of them, but to make as many available for family and genealogy researchers that I can.
If there is a memorial I have added for someone you would like transferred to you, please just let me know! I love being able to help honor those that have passed on before us! If you find a photo that you would like to have that I have posted for a loved one, please let me know and I can e-mail them to your direct e-mail address. I have tried to keep a copy of all the ones I have taken. Or you are more than welcome to copy them yourselves.

I also added two other LeVally's and Virginia Evans. She appears to be in the same family plot at Grape Grove.

Happy Hunting! Kay

LeValley's in Woodland
The cemetery office did have a interment record for both William and Laura LeValley, but they are buried in Sec O which is kind of a pauper section. There are not any locations of burials for this Section. I did walk this sec and there are no markers for these two persons. I will post a picture of the Section on their memorial page and please add Sec O and in notes "No marker"

Gravestone for Jeanette Shepard
Hello Melisa, I was at the McKendree Cemetery today. I looked for a gravestone for Jeanette Shepard-Thompson. I did not find one. The cemetery is very large however. I may try again, or someone else may have better luck. I also checked the Scioto Co Gravestone Inscriptions at the library. The cemetery was read in the 1970's and the stone was not there then either. Of course it would show in the book if Jeanette died after 1980.

RE: Flossie Teague
Hi Melisa, I don't remember if I have answered you or not so this may be a duplicate. Yes, Frances and Celia were the parents of my dad, Ernest Teague.
Have you been working on a family tree? I would love to see what you have.
You can write me at

Adrienne Thompson (#47078502)
Melisa, Do you know if Mrs. Thompson is still active? I see no activity on her page. I was trying to contact her regarding a memorial but really don't know another way to find out.

Thank you,

Hello. Just a heads up that it might be a while for your picture. The cemetery Board has a new rule that allows the office manager to only look up 3 person locations per photographer per month. She took the entire list of requests from me and will work on it as she can so she doesn't get into trouble to help up get caught up.

I hadn't checked Woodland since last year because another photographer wanted to be the sole photographer over there. Evidently he has stopped since there are so many unfulfilled requests right now. I'll get them done as soon as the office gets me locations.
