RE: Lassie Willey
No, I have nothing else on Marina, just the censuses from 1900 to 1940, which I imagine you already have.

I haven't searched Gateway for an obit. You might try that.

RE: Lassie Willey
Thanks for writing Lynn. I do a lot of work on newspaper archives at Gateway to Oklahoma History. Up to about 1922, it's a superb database. And free. I have often found that old obits get the place of burial wrong, probably because the editor just asked a family member and that person was just guessing, so don't let that throw you. The obits were written by busy editors who often received wrong info.

I have no connection that I know of with the Willey family. What I'm doing is digital restoration of abandoned cemeteries. My primary concern for the past year has been the McCorkle Cem. (Did you read where two years ago we got a physical restoration--cut down the jungle, put up a fence. Done by the City of Chandler when I was able to show them that they owned the land. Got lucky there.)

It's estimated that there may be as many as a hundred people buried there, but Find A Grave showed only about 25. Lots of work for me to do. I've gone through the newspaper archives, found a few things, and now I'm working from the land records. Ray Huffman was living within one mile of the cem. in 1903, so I set up a tree to run his census records, looking for deaths in the family, and that's how I came across the Willeys. One death notice for Ray's wife Marina said that she was the sister of little Mandy Chloe Willey buried in New Zion. Then I read your biographies of the family members, including Lassy, and that's why I wrote to you.

My tree's called "McCorkle Kin & Neighbors." Here's Amanda:

Good work, Lynne--keep it up!

Lassie Willey
I saw your message on site. I just discovered thru an old news clip
that Roy Huffman's wife was Lassie's daughter. Born 1889, her name was Marina Willey. She died in 1963 and is buried in Kendrick. Can you view my ancestry tree? I posted the clip on little Chloe's site.

RE: George Line
It doesn't matter to me who maintains the memorial. You're doing a terrific job! It looks great. I appreciate you making the changes so quickly.

George Line
Hi! I see that you are now taking care of our ancestor, Franky Hale Line.... (I am Dana's cousin. Dana originally created the memorial.) I'm hopeful you can make a few minor corrections to the information about George W. Line please?

George W. Line, born about 1842 in TN and died sometime after February, 1864. Civil War records show that George enlisted in 1864, serving in the Union Artillery. He married Sarah Ann Margaret Tucker after 20 Aug 1860, because he was listed on the 1860 census with his parents in Dallas County, Missouri. Sarah gave birth to two children with George, a boy who was deceased by 1900 and Georgia who was born in November, 1864.

If you would please replace his paragraph with the one above I would appreciate it. We do in fact know what happened to Georgia. She was raised by her step-father, JKP Moore, married and moved to TX. All of this, however, is on her memorial.

RE: Monnie McCluskey and her brother
I really don't remember that plaid coat/dress. That could be it. Like I said, it was quite some time ago when I packed the box.
I am trying to do a major 'filing' project here. IF I find it, I will let you know. But, I really think I had all the pictures in it. There is a step relative of the Sluders that I contacted before on Ancestry if you have any for them, I will find the contact.

RE: McClusky
The one you found may be the one I was thinking of. I sure thought she looked a little younger. I put those in the box about a year ago, hoping to find someone to send them to. SO glad I finally did and so glad there was at least one you hadn't seen before.
My mother passed when I was small, so pictures are few and far between. When two of her older sisters passed, the oldest cousin took their pictures, scanned them and put them on a CD for all of us. SO priceless. I have one picture with my mother, my sis and me shortly before she passed. The original is not faded from being displayed and exposed to light for forty years. We have our 'Bridal' dolls with us in the picture. I always thought I still have mine, but it appears I have my sister's. Mine must not have survived this tomboy.

Thank you so much for your generous donation to Western Plains Weatherford Genealogical Society.
We are so happy to get the photos to a family member.
Was the one of Monie and her brother, your grandfather?

Crudgington Cemetery
I can send you a map if you give me your email addy.

Take highway 65 to Louisburg and turn east on highway 64 east. You will then take the first right you come to which will be Crudgington Lane. Follow gravel road until it dead ends. Turn west then north until you get to a gate that yuo will have to get out an open and then close again(cows may be around). You will follow along a fence row north until you get to another gate to get into the cemetery.

Hope this helps We loved this cemetery and it is well kept by the Phillips who recently had a loved one passed away and is buried there,

My wife has a 2nd great grandfather Isaac Sidwell buried there. We just fixed his grave before we left.

Don't go there if it has recently rained..a lot better to get ar0und when it is dry.
