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 Ancestry.com 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.

These are both the same individuals. One is his military stone, the other his civilian.
I came across this as I am preparing a list of all veterans in IOOF Cemetery Eureka Springs Ar.
Thank you for your service in the Corps & thank you for your work on Find A Grave.

If you are not a relatives to Iva Mae would you please transfer her to me. She is my Aunt, I have info on her family I can add. I must say you have contributed a lot to Find-A-Grave. Thank you for that. By the way, where did you get the photo of Aunt Iva Mae? I worked at the nursing home she was in before her death.
