Van Buren Union Cemetery
I have been looking for an address for the Van Buren Union Cemetery on line and by calling an operator on the phone. There seems to be no address for this cemetery. Do you know of an address? Also, is there some one there that I can contact to get cemetery records? Maybe even a phone number? I doubt that there is a phone number if there is no address.
Thank you for your kind answer.

Hello Orlena,

Happy to transfer him to you. I have also had trouble with Kim in the past regarding transfers, etc.

I thought that it would be better for you to add your info to his bio in the format you like best.

Fran Dollard
Find A Grave Memorial# 45563329

My sister and I are trying to find out more information on the Dollard family. Would you know anything of Sandra's Dollard side? We believe our Grandpa Dollard might be her Grandpa Dollard but we are not sure. His name would have been John J Dollard or Dollar and we believe his wife's name would have been Anne.

Thank you for any assistance you can give us.

Kind regards,

Fran Dollard

Thanks for adding the small account of the death of Clifford Jameson in 1929. I occasionally run across items such as this one in the Cherokee Sentinel as I look for items about my father's family.

RE: Sarah Thornbrugh Bailey
you wrote:
Is Thornbrugh, Hortense 28015863 in Oak Hill Cemetery the wife of James, John, or yet another Thornbrugh? At the current time she has been linked to James. Was he married to more than mother of his children Nancy Ann Feathercycle Thornbrugh?

Yes, you have them linked correctly. Hortense was James Galway Thornbrugh's 2nd & final wife. John Thornbrugh buried at Oak Hill is the third child of James & first wife Nancy.

I have sent SACs with some more info on James, Hortense and John.

Hi Orlena,

My grandparents, Dora & Marion Francis Fry, and my uncle, Leslie Fry, are buried in the Oak Hill Cemetery. I am writing to request that you transfer management of those to me if you are willing to do so.

Thank you very much,

I want to thank you for adding Kent's memorial to findagrave. We were first cousins and just found out about his passing. I also want to thank you for the obituary and family links. You have given him dignity in his passing.

Alvena Friend Barnett
Hello Orlena,
Thanks for steering me in the right direction to find more information about Alvena. You were absolutely right; her maiden name was Friend. I have given you credit on her memorial.

I was shocked & surprised to learn that she & her husband had been shot.

In appreciation,

I will be happy to transfer Goldie to you. Her granddaughter was my best friend growing up. We lived 2 doors away for 10 years. She stood up for me at my wedding and I for hers. Don't remember Goldie, but more Joe. Nice old guy.

The daughter of Patsy Sizemore called me today, 10 Dec, to inform me that her mother is not buried in the Searles Valley Cemetery.
Cholla, the daughter, informed that in fact her mother's ashes are in her, Cholla's, closet. Cholla is not even sure her mother will be buried in Searles Valley Cemetery.
Please delete this memorial.

You did a beautiful job on this memorial. You have done the research or the whole family.

Thank you and God Bless,

Hi Orlena,

I did some more research and found that Edward Parker's middle name is King. That is Alta Fay Duree's husband. The obit was a little bit messed up. I know that can happen.

Thank you for your concern.

Alta Fay Duree Parker
Find A Grave Memorial# 82869766

Alta Fay Duree was born or William David Duree and Effa Frances Nunn. I know this is her, as her sister is mentioned in the obituary. I do not know where the King came from, other than she could have been married before. I have not figured out who "Doc" is of yet. I am still working on this family.

I know that you didn't put this obit together yourself. May you could put a notation to these facts.

God bless you for what you do.
