I grew up in El Reno, OK and for the last 11 years have lived in Yukon, OK. My wife and I bought my childhood dream house and her dream house here in El Reno in mid August 2015!!! The home is a two story colonial with balcony and columns. The home was built in 1920. For the homes 100th birthday we plan to have a party. We are beyond excited to own and be moved in and settled in the home!

You live as long as you are remembered. -- Russian proverb

I am a record keeper.
This is a great place to share some of the information that I have and hopefully help others in their research as well.

I spend a lot of time walking the cemeteries and getting information and photos for the memorials, but my purpose is not to have "ownership" of them, but to make as many available for family, loved ones and genealogy researchers that I can.

If I can help someone find information about their relatives by posting an old obituary it makes it worth my time.

"I know for certain that we never lose the people we love, even to death. They continue to participate in every act, thought and decision we make. Their love leaves an indelible imprint in our memories. We find comfort in knowing that our lives have been enriched by having shared their love." ~Leo Buscaglia

If I have made an entry that needs correction or if you would like it transferred, please just let me know and I'll be happy to help.

If you want to contact me with information, links or corrections for any of my memorials, please use the "Suggest A Correction" (SAC) link on the "Edit" tab of the memorial.

"Love is stronger than death even though it can't stop death from happening, but no matter how hard death tries it can't separate people from love. It can't take away our memories either. In the end, life is stronger than death." Unknown

"The spirit of brotherhood recognizes of necessity both the need of self-help and also the need of helping others in the only way which every ultimately does great good, that is, of helping them to help themselves." -- Theodore Roosevelt quotes (American 26th US President (1901-09), 1858-1919)

I spoke with a Mr. Elkins at the VFW (262-2544) and he said that one of the family members should contact him and they would apply for his marker. I looked in the phone book and could not find his children listed but I did find brothers Donald (262-5893) and Larry (262-0705).

I admit that I am a bit afraid of calling them to ask them if they want to do this....

Do you want to??

An expression of gratitude
Thank you for responding so quickly to edit requests establishing the relationships between the members of grandpa's family: Frank, Ida, Elza, and Joseph Dolton. That was very nice.

Do you know anyone at the VFW? Maybe they could help.

I think the markers are ordered when they do the burial stuff. Wilson's should have handled it if the family gave them the DD214 (I think). And I think the family has to do it.

I contacted Wilson's. They looked at his paperwork and could find nothing on a military marker request.

It's so sad that when there is family around that they can't take care of a headstone for their loved ones. And he did have family that probably could have taken care of this!

Not a problem. so many of the cemeteries have similar names. I have done the same thing before. Have a good evening.
