I grew up in El Reno, OK and for the last 11 years had 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!!! Hard to believe it has been a year that we have lived here now. The home is a two story colonial with balcony and columns. The home was built sometime between July 1908 and November 1913. We are beyond excited to own this amazing 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.

Thy Word Have I
Hid in Mine Heart
That I might Not
Sin Against Thee
Psalm 119:11

As a well-spent day brings happy sleep, so life well used brings happy death.
Leonardo da Vinci

"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)

"A lie gets halfway around the world before the truth has a chance to get its pants on." ~ Winston Churchill

"I am prepared to meet my Maker. Whether my Maker is prepared for the great ordeal of meeting me is another matter." ~ Winston Churchill

“Somebody should tell us, right at the start of our lives, that we are dying. Then we might live life to the limit, every minute of every day. Do it! I say. Whatever you want to do, do it now! There are only so many tomorrows.” Pope Paul VI quotes (Italian Pope. 1897-1978)

“I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I have not lived.” Henry David Thoreau quotes (American Essayist, Poet and Philosopher, 1817-1862)

I can't find where he was buried, do you have any Idea. He was married to Florence Levada (Floyd) they had a son, Floyd L Tyson, she later married,
Cecil Hiram Darnell I would like to connect her with the son to Walter Royal Tyson.

Any help would be appreciated.

I have a picture in the calendar I bought of Neathery Hardware & Furniture Co if you can tell me who owned that business. Thanks, Robert Adlet

Would truly have enjoyed meeting him.
