Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm The Old Chief. That's because I'm relatively old and am a retired Navy Chief Petty Officer. I got into working with FindAGrave to enhance my work on our family tree through and as a way to get out of the house and get some exercise. Although my residence is in central Oklahoma I travel throughout this great country in my RV so you may see memorial and photo entries from various states.

I'm specifically interested in the names Stone, Weed, Davis, Jones, Berry as it pertains to our family in Oklahoma.

Also my wife's family: Hill, Rogers and Phillips.

TRANSFER REQUEST: If you see someone that is a member of your family and want that memorial changed to your account just ask. If I am not also related I will consider your request. (For transfer request that are outside the FAG guidelines I consider them on a case by case basis. If your profile shows you have MANY more memorials that you "manage" than you have actually done the work to add yourself then your out of guidelines request will probably be denied.)

When requesting a transfer please give your FAG contributor number AND how are you related to the individual. Please use the EDIT tab on the individual memorial page to request transfers. Also, permission is hereby granted to copy and reuse pictures of any grave marker that I have taken and posted on this site as long as they ARE NOT posted to a for profit site such as

RE: Leiber-Narup
I suspect the Bruns memorial is a cenotaph. Note there is no death date inscribed on the headstone, while there is on yours. Still, where duplicates are concerned, Find A Grave rules give precedence to the earlier memorial, which, in this case, favors Bruns.

My suggestion: alert to this situation and let them sort it out. In any event, you should resolve this matter to prevent confusion. I discovered the duplicate while adding a link to this family.

Best of luck.

Re: Lisa T. Johnson--

I doubt T. is a middle initial. Those are decorative crosses. Just a suggestion for a change.
