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 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.

Mary Etta (Smith) Cowan #67424990
Mary Etta was married to Travis James Cowan, Jr. She was the daughter of Arthur and Rachael Bowden Smith. Travis was the brother to Gracie, Martha, Dorris, Mildred, and David Cowan. They are all buried in the Oakwood cemetery in Oklahoma. Travis was also the brother to Robert Bowie Cowan my mother's grandpa. I would be glad to update this memorial and manage it. Thank you.

Lawrence House White
Rumor has it there IS a stone for Lawrence in the Baptist Cemetery, where his parents are buried. (ill make a request) . Im not sure yet if its just a family marker, or if he was indeed reinterred. Will keep digging.

Lonnie, after creating a new memorial, i noticed you have a memorial for Lawrence House White made already. It seems to be in the wrong graveyard according to the Death Certificate. If you want the new memorial i'll gladly transfer it..(Find A Grave Memorial# 152974090) or if you have information on him being moved to the Episcopal cemetery, can we get that documentation?

Where do your Willis ancestors come from? I have Willis ancestors from Martin Co NC, Wayne Co NC, and Vance co NC. They are all of the same line but moved when jobs in cotton mills became available.

Hi Lonnie,

Can you please remove the photo from this memorial. You accidently uploaded the wrong photo.

I was a young child when my Popo died. And I happen to be at the computer and thought I would search him and I am every so grateful the first thing that popped up was your picture of his grave. I have been once in 25 years due to financial burdens but now I feel I am visiting when I look at your picture. I am forever grateful.
