RE: Christina Fox
Thank you so much for doing this for me! I really appreciate it. Some people get so "snarky" if you ask them to change something in a memorial--I'm glad you are not one of them. Thanks again!

Jack Raymond Nye
Debbie: You posted the grave site of Jack Raymond Nye that died in 1983 in Amarillo TX. We have been searching for a Jack Raymond Nye, b 1923, son of S. D. Nye and Julia Dove Moore NYE for years and just yesterday I found your post. Do you know if your Jack Raymond was born in OK? We tried to find him when his sister died and we have looked ever since. We know he went to Alaska and worked on a pipeline some where around 1946. He enlisted in the National Guard here in Tulsa in 1940 and was attending Central High School just prior to enlisting. We would appreciate any help that you might offer. Patsy Nye

Mollie A. Haverstock
Hi Debbie,
I made all the corrections you asked me to except The name change on Mollie Haverstock Beals. Please let me know what proof you have on her name being Mary, as no record I have found shows her name to be anything but Molly/Mollie, including her gravestone, marriage record and census records after her marriage to Warren Beals. Thanks!

Stay warm!

I am a grandson of James Braxton Dorris Jr. This has been really interesting finding and reading all the information. I didnt know much of Grandpas past beyond his dad and mom.

We have a picture of James Sr and Maude when they were married. My older brother looks exactly like James Sr. It is kind of spooky. Haha. My brothers name is James.

We also have a pic of grandpa when he was in the navy, he joined when he was young around 16. My brothers son looks exactly like grandpa. The Dorris family resemblance is remarkable

photo for A.A. McElyea
The memorial for #27986463 A.A. McElyea says there should be a photo, added by you, but the photo does not actually show.
Could you try adding it again?
I would really like to find out if his wife, Mary Anne, nee Meadows, is buried with him.
Thank you!
