I have created a virtual cemetery for the children who were killed in the Oklahoma City bombing on April 19, 1995. They were on the second floor of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in the America's Kids Child Development Center. It includes the Director of the Center, 2 workers, and a visitor.

If you would like to pay your respects, it has been 17 years on April 19, 2012.

I loved Dick Clark, but I think it is a sad commentary of the times we live in where people are so caught up with movie stars and music stars, etc. Within "minutes" of Dick Clark's passing he had 700 plus messages left on his Find A Grave memorial page. Most of the little children who were killed in the bombing of their Day Care Center in Oklahoma City, have received less than 20 messages over the last 17 years, since they were killed.

Just a thought...

Hi Barbara,

Thank you so much for your recent email. And thank you very much for the information and the offer of help and support with which you provided me. Being new to all of this, I'm sure I'm going to need it.

Imagene Harrington is my first cousin. I grew up with her in Hughes County, Oklahoma. Her father (Jesse Leach) and my father (Bill Leach) were bothers and were sons of Nancy Anna Leach.

Again, thank you for the help and I look forward to corresponding with you in the future.

Hello Mrs. Grimes,

My name is Roger Leach and I am the grandson of Nancy Anna Leach. I am new to and was wondering if you might be able to help me with some information concerning my grandmother's family.

Any help you might be able to provide me would be sincerely appreciated.

Thank you.


Roger Leach

RE: Eastland Disaster
Thank you for your note. There has been a good bit of news in Chicago lately about the Eastland due to some newsreel footage that has been found. One of the contributors in my List of Friends, Jessica Goforth (#46514540) has compiled a significant Virtual Cemetery for victims of the Eastland and also the Iroquois Theater fire. Chicago has had its share of disasters taking young lives. I see you also have been remembering the Lady of Angels school fire, so sad.
Graceland has some others involved in disasters.
Ryerson, Arthur 87412141 died on the Titanic, and Herbert Stone on the Lusitania. Thnnk you for remembering and sharing. Bob

RE: Pete Hill
Originally when I created this memorial I did submit it for "famous" status and Find a Grave denied the submission for some unknown reason. I'm not really sure how to subsequently resubmit something without creating it all over again but I'd be happy to do so ...

Barbara, Elizabeth Susan Dabbs Hubbard and John Henry Hubbard were the parents of Christopher Columbus Hubbard. Christopher Columbus Hubbard, also, gave the name of Loye Christopher to one of his sons. Thanks, Penny Stafford
