Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a native Texan, born in Gainesville, Cooke, County, Texas on 3 March 1945. I enlisted in the U.S. Air Force and served from 1964-1968. I made my living as a mechanical engineer for Bell Helicopter for 41 years and am now enjoying retirement. My interest in genealogy was really kindled when my father died in 1978 and I inherited boxes and boxes of documents.

Sorry for the photos. Someone asked me to take a photo at Lakeview cemetery and gave me the plot number for her. I was a volunteer for this website. I found the plot number and uploaded the photos. I have now deleted the photos but it still says she's at Lakeview cemetey and the plot number. I think you have to contact the manager of the page to remove that.

Thank you for bringing this to my attention. However, I see another, later, entry for her with a newspaper clipping of her death, and so deleted my posting.

My Hopkins family are buried in this cemetery. I photographed many other tombstone photos that day while I was there visiting my family's graves for the first time, attempting to add additional information as well. I hope I didn't make many mistakes in so doing. I'm glad you contacted me.

I, too, inherited many photos and papers from my parents many years ago in western Kansas resulting in my now being the family genealogist. I've tried to add as many of the old photos as possible to Find A Grave so other family members may see them as well...

Helen (O'Brate) Cook, in AR
