Retired law enforcement and military (Marines and Air Force Reserves) currently in a nursing career. I collect WWI, WWII and Vietnam era uniforms, medals, etc as my main hobby but also dabble in autographs and of course work on the family tree from time to time. Most of the memorials I have created are of family or very good friends. But, I also build memorials or write bio's for veterans who do not have a memorial or bio already built - but should have. I live in Tulsa, OK.
RE: Josie Minerva McMurtry That's disappointing to hear no headstone. How did you get the information? Was there some documentation from the cemetery?
There is still something wrong with the date of birth and death of death. Here is a link to the Baber history which shows on the last line Joicey M. Davis born Nov. 23, 1829. You had a death of Nov. 23, 1879 which can't be right because she is on the 1880 census living with her husband Calvin McMurtry. I still need a death date.
RE: Joicey Minerva McMurtry I believe her parents are Matthew Leonard Davis and Lucy Baber. Calvin and Joyce Minerva's children were: Milton, Olivia, Effie, Cora, Alice, Laura, Levin and Albert. Calvin's parents were Levi McMurtry and Nancy McCrosky.
RE: Josie Minerva McMurtry Thank you for clarifying this. Do you have a photo of the stone? Yes, you are correct her husband was Calvin McMurtry. I do not know of anyone else buried in there. Unfortunately, I do not live nearby.
David England Howdy: Just wanted to drop a quick note to let you know that this David was not the son of Joseph England and Mary Reed. Their son Joseph was born 1800 in Hardin County, Kentucky; married Elizabeth Harlin and resided in Marion County, Illinois until moving to Cooke County, Texas, where he died in 1870.
Sallie England Hello Rick. I am Ashley Vann, I am one of the genealogist at the Cherokee Heritage Center in Tahlequah, OK. I was wondering if I have permission to save a copy of the photos you had on her memorial?
