That's funny
I didn't even notice you called me Mary until you corrected yourself. LOL that's my moms name.

Did they Young's live in Wanette or just in Pottawatomie Co. I do have records of some Youngs but not sure they are from the same family. There is a tree I created on titled Wanette but it doesn't have any more information than you do on these particular Youngs.

Wanette also has a facebook page. Its titled "You know you're from Wanette if...." They have posted a bunch of old pictures and newspaper articles but there is lots of chatter about current activities. I have never seen so much talk in all my life...for being so small of a town, they are very active. Maybe 100 people.

I am not related. I have just lived in Wanette since birth. Does Edna have a tombstone? I've pretty much photographed the entire cemetery but I'm pretty sure there is one small section that I missed and need to go back and find it. Lots of sections there. I found her death date and just added it to findagrave so you should get a notification on findagrave to approve it.

The Santa Fe Historical Museum and Society are very active on facebook. They post old pics of Pott Co daily. There is a book about Wanette up there made by Miss Dawson and I've asked for a digital copy of it and they are suppose to tell me who much but they haven't given me a price yet but I'll ask again. I guess they have finally began scanning all their pics and records. Its about time! Just type in Pottawatomie under facebook and you'll see it.

RE: The Stick Family
Oh, what a shame. After looking at both pictures, I can see where the statues are missing from. Yes, it is sad that people feel they can destroy others property.

RE: Your Profile
Thank you so very much for your kind words. I usually take 2 photos of one marker. One without items, swept clean and one with the items once they are replaced. So people viewing then can see all the Little trinkets or flowers, etc, that may be there:)I love what I do, and I am here for the same reasons as you.. One day, this site will be far more valuable that any other source. I wish more people would realize, they are on a website, and their name is with that picture , forever, to :) Thanks for reaching out ~

Resthaven Cemetery in OKC
I saw your requests in Resthaven Cemetery in Oklahoma City. The funeral home charges non-family members to get plot locations. To get your requests, a plot is needed and there are a few active photographers! I did a quick newspaper search in The Oklahoman for Martin Friar. I came across some articles. I am going to email them to you using The Oklahoman's email system. Good luck in your searches!

Lee Bollinger photo request
I have been out to the cemetery twice and couldn't find a stone for him. I did find Betty and the son though. Perhaps they don't have one up for him yet. I will keep checking when I go out that way.

You are so welcome for the photos. Unfortunately I was unable to find a stone for Lee Bollinger. I walked the whole cemetery for several hours but didn't find one.

My mother grew up in Plainwell and remembers Art's shoe repair, as we dusted the grave off for the photos she said "He was great! We took our shoes there all the time." Thought you might like to know that he was remembered and admired.

RE: Tim Williams

Hunter has been working on something for me for a month. Dont hold your breath..they are quite busy too though and hv old timers working there.
The geneology society has cemetery books that are quite informative. There are three and cost abt 125. For all three. If my people were from this county Id definately hv them bcos they hv in some cases daughter and son of and married to, some even hv cause of death. To me they are priceless. There are a few sets left. I wdnt wait.

Mail me your address and I will send you a list of what thwy hv for sale. There is a CD but Im not sure what is on it.

Glad I cld help you.

Went back to Williams cemetery with my neighbor and his crowbar. See new picture. All we were able to get off the buried piece was TIM.

RE: Williams Cemetery
I did attempt to roll it over but it is stuck in the dirt. I will try and find someone to help me get it up one day soon though. I also added some for Dr E. D. Williams too the next day. Did you see them? This cemetery is in a cow pasture so i hv to pick my visits when the cows are in the opposite end!

All I can suggest is to contact Forest Lawn and see if they can tell you anything or get the death certificate.

RE: The Jack Hutchings Family
I think the original person that added the picture to the memorial has to remove it. So you requesting to have them removed is perfectly fine. You did a great job cleaning the stones. I have removed the older pix.

Sorry it has taken me so long to respond.
I dont have any other info on John W. Holliday other than he married Sarah Leedom. She was born 1812 in Bentonville, Adams Co Ohio and died in 1860 Sarah Also married William Malott and James Holliday which I have no info for him either.
If I find out anymore info on anyone I will let you know.
