Possible Family Cemetery.
The 2, Callens you have in your virtual cemetery, "Possible Family", S.P. Callen and Socrates Plato Callen are distant kin to Coy Callen and myself. The Callens came via, Carroll Co., Ark., Bold Springs, Texas, Johnston Co., Okla. and Coy and my Grand-Dad (Jess Callen) settled in Greer and Beckham counties, Okla.

Callen Family
If you're kin to Coy Callen, then you are kin to the two "Callens" you have in your virtual cemetery "may be kin to" (as in, S.P. "Crat" Callen and Socrates Plato Callen). Coy Callen's dad was called "Crat" as well. I think Coy's full name is: Coy Crat Callen. Follow Coy's family back to Carroll Co., Ark. Lots of "Crats" along the way, maybe off to the side (as in different branches. I was raised near Mangum, my dad was Coy's nephew.

Callen Family
How are you related to the Coy Callen family. Coy was my Dad's uncle. I joined Find A Grave as a Contributor back in Nov., 2013. I've really enjoyed this website, having browsed it for about 2 years prior to becoming a member.

RE: Sylvia Hamilton
Sad to hear there is infighting and it has resulted in her grave remaining unmarked. Happens in lots in families. I'm glad you liked what I could provide and your mother was happy too. I try to do that for the unmarked, not the same as a stone, but yet still something. Hopefully, it gives some comfort to the family seeing the area in which they are buried.

I hope to work on marking my ggrandparents after the first of the year. I have gathered the documents necessary, it's just finding the time to drive the 35 miles to the cemetery during the week (as they aren't there on weekends) and having them accept my documentation. Then I can order a stone. My brother has offered to pay for half (what a nice brother). Then after 80+ years they will be marked. They were always remembered as we would go and put flowers on their graves when I was a child, but there needs to be a stone and hopefully soon there will be.

Much success to you on searching for your family members. Chris

RE: Sylvia Hamilton
You are very welcome. Glad I could be of help to you. I did verify with the cemetery that she was buried to the right of Marvin. I have had 3 instances in the last few weeks where the wife dies after the husband and no one bothers to get a stone for them. It's very sad. My father and I marked several graves that had not been previously marked in the 90's in out family. I have one more that needs marked, my great grandparents. It was hard times and my grandfather just didn't have the money to mark them. However, in CA, you have to prove lineage, so I have to gather several documents together to show my relationship to the deceased and that everyone else has died, giving me the right to mark the grave. So it's quite a task. Chris

I am sorry to report that her grave was unmarked. She is buried next to her husband in Lawn I. I did take a couple of photos of where her headstone should be. Always sorry to have to report an unmarked grave. Chris

Hi - I am descended from 2 of Anna's sisters. I was in LA last week and went by Forest Lawn to look for the DeGrootes and the office couldn't figure out where they are buried. Maybe you can help or give me a number to try and call again? Will be back in LA in the next few months. Thanks!

RE: CC Hanna
Absolutely not! The important thing is that C C Hannah has found people who belong to him and will honor his memorial. I've always marveled at how a memorial will become alive once it is "tended" by a descendant who remembers the one it represents. Your Grammy would be proud of all that you have done, and that you care enough to pass on a memorial to another who can make it come alive.

C C Hanna
Hi, I'm photographing the Covington, TX Cemetery and have come across a CSA headstone for C C Hanna. There are no dates for birth or death. I have placed it on the memorial you created for Christopher Columbus Hanna. If it is not his, will you let me know so I can move it to a new memorial?

Thank you.

Was wondering if you knew who our great great great grandfather was and if you knew for sure where our great great grandfather, James Hamilton, was born? I've seen both Tennessee and South Carolina as his birth location.

My line goes Missouri Jane Hamilton, Benjamin Eskew Hamilton and James & Martha (Oden) Hamilton.

Your welcome. I checked and there are no other Hatcher's buried in the Breckenridge Cemetery.

RE: Photos at Independence Cemetery
You are very welcome. What was special about this request to me... is that my Grandparents were extremely close friend of Lynn & Christines'. I remember going to the Spurlins house alot when I was growing up. I remember every room in their house. My Grandma is still living and she went with me yesterday morning. It tickled her to know that someone was keeping up her dear friends. As for the flowers, I am not sure who put them there. It wasn't us.

Hamiliton Family
I was curious if the Hamiltons that are buried in the Independence Cemetery are related to the William Watts Hamilton family that live in the Madge and Shinnery communities in the late 1800s. Wm Watts Hamilton married Jennie Ingram, daughter of Benjamin Thomas "BT" Ingram that is buried at the Needwood Cemetery. My great grandmother was an Ingram and Wm Watts was married to her sister.

RE: Vaudis Orr Allen (Stilwell)
You are more than welcome! My daughter took care of your other request at Glade Creek. My daughter and I love doing this for other folks. We do it as a family project with my 11 year old granddaughter included. I spent over 20 years of my life wearing all that clean room garb. I was involved in the best career possible.
Have a great day.
