Bio Photo Capt Lonnie Ray Hoover
Unites States Marine Corps

I have been researching my family tree for over 30 years. I have over 50,000 relatives in my Ancestry.com tree.
My wife and I have sold our ranch and are now living in an RV. We will be on the road for at least three or four years, I want to visit and photograph all the cemeteries where my relatives are buried. My roots start in Virginia and North Carolina, I am starting there and working my way west.
One of my projects was to HONOR my fellow Veterans who are no longer with us, by photographing the over 20,000 memorials in the Fort Gibson National Cemetery, Ft Gibson, Oklahoma, to date I have taken photos of over 19,000 stones and added most to findagrave, then I went back, added wives and deleted all duplicates.
If I am managing one of your relatives, and they are not in my family tree, contact me and I will transfer it to you, no questions ask. Feel free to use any photo I have posted to Find A Grave, that's why I do this.
I research the family lines of my grandparents, WALSTON, LAWRENCE, WILLIS and HOOVER.

Sorry, no headstone. He is buried next to Martha Lawrence. I did post her picture.

Hi Lonnie,

I see that you have taken many photos of veterans, and was hoping you might do me the favor of getting a photo. Roger is buried in Greenleaf Cem, Tahlequah, Cherokee County, OK. He served in the 1-8 Jumping Mustangs in the 1st Cav. My project includes 395 KIA's from the companies of that unit. I still have about 65 with no grave photos. Lonnie your work on Find A Grave is so wonderful. I know you must be very busy, but if you could find time in your travels, please keep Roger in mind.

Best Regards,
Sue Rice

Thank you for taking your time and doing this. I really appreciate what you have done. I got to see my Uncle Warren W. Rhodes's grave site for the first time, I am grateful for that. Thank you again, and thank you for your service. You are very appreciated!

Leo Walston
Lonnie,

Just wanted to let you know that I happened upon the burial location of Leo Walston today while looking for someone else. You or someone else had requested a photo a while back and I was originally unable to fulfill the request because the publicly available records only cover burials up to 1985. A photo of his marker has been uploaded to his memorial.

Regards,
Joe Canner
