She was my great great grandmother. I talked with you several years ago when I had gotten interested in genealogy. If I remember correctly I was going to send you some info, sorry I never did. Anyway I noticed you had her listed as being buried without marker at Square Cedar Cemetery in Major County Oklahoma. She is buried in Arapaho Oklahoma.

I do have a picture of the area-Section E, Blk 2, Lot J. I tried to send it to you, but it was rejected by the mail administrator.
I would post it if you wanted and/or add the name somewhere out in area.
I do know for certain that this Section is a mix of much older burials with a few more recent. I know for certain that there are a number of other burials that do not have markers in that specific section.

We just found a life sketch on Aunt "Vene". It tells a little about her husband. Would you like a copy? We can create an obit for her memorial or would you like to? It also tells why no one knows where her husband is buried.

RE: Oliver Burdett duplicate memorial
I recommend you hold off on deleting your memorial and send an email request to Find a Grave at to transfer the original into your care. THEN go back and ask them to merge yours into the original. This will merge the two into one under YOUR care (which is where I believe it should be) AND none of the photos will be lost.

I know this sounds like a very roundabout way of getting this done but the original contributor seems to no longer be active and I've been working to get her 200+ duplicates in Custer National removed. Find A Grave has simply been merging them but only into the original.

I hope you're following all this and I'm not confusing you ~ please be patient but let me know how it all comes out.

Thanks bunches,

RE: Laura Button Bybee
Just found where I came upon Laura Bybee. Laura and husband John Bybee's daughter was Bertha Mae Bybee who married Lionel Wesley Marquett. Their daughter was Helen Louise Marquett, who married Raymond C. Kortum. Raymond's parents were Frederick William and Agnes Dorothea (Schneider) Kortum. The Schneider family is related to my family going back into Germany.

Side note: I see some people are sending you Bybee obituaries. Not sure if they are related to John and Laura Bybee. If I should find how I can upon the Bybee's to begin with, I will let you know.

RE: Laura Button Bybee
You can go to two websites, both which I reached to provide the middle name for Laura (Button) Bybee.

Family Search: I can only find her listed as Laura L. Button/Bybee. There may also be Laura T. Button/Bybee, which is probably a mistype.

Ancestry: There are several listed if I researched by her husband, John Button, with his year born in Kentucky and died in Iowa. His wife Laura is listed in some as Laura, some with Laura L., one with Laura T., but the one I found to send you an Edit Request was, Laura Louisa Button. Also among the list were Laura Louisa "Laurie" Button, which is a nickname for Laura.

My reasoning for my edit request? If Family Search has Laura L., then her middle name must be Louisa. I am not related, not related to any of those who posted this family on Ancestry, but they must be related if they posted this family to begin with. I happen upon this family only because of an connection to someone within my many, many, family members and I can not tell you how or who, for I don't remember. Just helping out wherever I can.

Totally up to you want you do or what you believe.

Good luck with your work.

Robert Bbee - Cave Hill Cem
There was no marker for Robert at the location you gave, nor at the location which was in Cave Hill's database on the day I went there. (Section 27, Range 326) I suggest you check the database periodically, because the dang thing has been changing back and forth for some of the locations I've been working with.

I added a photo of the area.

I double checked today and there are no other Bybees buried around Betty. I will check with a friend in the office and see if he might be buried elsewhere. What was his full name and birth and death dates.

Bybee Family in Jasper Co., MO
Leslie, I'm interested in the Arty Bybee family in Joplin. I am doing a little research for a friend. I have found Evelyn Mildred Bybee listed in the census records but have no connections on Find A Grave or mentioned in brothers' obituaries. Is there a reason of which you're aware as to why she is not mentioned? Thanks!
