Hi Deanna

My nephew came a few weeks ago. he is from Shorts name in Oklahoma. We went to a cemetery out on Texana Rd way out in boondocks. there are a lot of whisenhunts burried there. Some very old bricks just sticking in ground. Hard to say what names they are or dates. I also volunteer take pics.

I just wanted to thank you for the info about my great grandfather. I have just started to find out about my family tree and these pictures are a wonderful addition!

Thank you so much,

Clarence Hensley, Jr.

Hi Deana, I may need to eventually add YOU to my family tree as you have been such a wonderful asset in creating so many memorials for my extended family members! Thank you so much for the transfer of Ernest Pickens to me for management. It has been exciting these past couple of weeks to connect with two more cousins from my Pickens family who are as addicted to genealogy as myself! With their help, I will be helping write his story and hopefully adding some heritage photos. Have a great day, Helen

Edith and Joe Watson
Deana, this world of ours is getting smaller every day. I just discovered that you are related to Edith and Joe Watson, Edith was my son's childcare lady. We moved to Cache, Okla. in the fall of 1974, the week my son started kindergarten. He stayed with her from 1974-1980 or so. We'd drop him off before school (Edith and Joe lived only about 3 blocks from school). I just discovered, that they and their daughter are buried at Sunset Memorial cemetery, here in Lawton. TTYL !

A Co-worker of Levi's
Deana, Levi and I used to work together here in Lawton and my wife & I stopped by (a few yrs. ago) the cemetery where Levi and your daughter are buried. You and your husband have placed a real nice marker for him. I have recently became a Find A Grave contributor, took a look at Levi's memorial, to make sure he had one. I thought the Bio./write-up that you did for Levi was really nice. I am the co-worker for whom Levi had set a 15 minute warning (on his watch), so as to prod me into gathering up our tools near quitting time. LOL! I retired 3 1/2 years ago after 40 years with PSO. So long for now.

It is so sweet that your beloved baby girl and Levi are together for always, I did not read all the way through when the previous note was left. Helen

Appreciate you!
Hi Deanna, I just wanted to let you know how very much the transfer of John Pickens' memorial is to me! I am slowly but surely locating his siblings and an now link him with his parents. It is my hope to locate some of his grandchildren who also love working on the family history. Your bio is very inspiring with the story of the little girl in the cemetery, it should be everyone's mantra as we are all "helping each other home". May God Bless you always with wonderful memories of your son Levi. Warmly, Helen

Sharon Watson
I knew your cousin when she was attending college at Cameron University in 1980. I lost track of her when I joined the Air Force. In 1989 I received a phone call out-of-the blue and it was from your cousin,(she had seen me at the K-Mart) it was awesome reconnecting with her. We spoke on the phone numerous times, and were making plans to meet at K-Mart once I returned from my trip. I believe that her sister informed me of her tragic passing when I returned.
Sharon appreciated me because I was one of the people in her life, back then, who did not expect anything from her, but her happiness and her wonderful smile.
She was a great woman!

I don't know why 24 years later I reminiscence about some of the great people from my past,and your cousin was one of them.

She is truly missed

Letrell Cuff
County Line Cemetery, OK
Deana, I am assisting a lady with her family history. We are looking for information on 3 children with no documentation from mid 1900's.

My friend feels they may be in unmarked graves in the County Line Cemetery. We saw your name as the creator of the cemetery, having added the Galloways.

Were these added by request or did you add them on your own? If they were by request, do you remember who requested the photos of the gravesites? This would really, really...REALLY help us out.

Thanks so much.
