RE: Relatives in Saint Paul Baptist Cemetery
I've transferred the two memorials to you as I am not related. I was driving by the cemetery one day and stopped and photographed all headstones. I've not added the information about the children; you will be able to do that now that the memorials have been transferred to you.

RE: Hi
I talked to one Iowa Tribe member recently, but she didn't know to whom I should call. I will have to call the main Tribal number.

RE: Hi
I may have been in the mile section just E of there but will return to check. I thought destroying a grave was illegal?? My condolences. Do you know what Tribe has ancestors buried here? They may be able to help get the plot restored to public use....

Tried to find Dudley Cem. today with no luck. 1 mile North of Carney and 2- 3 miles west. Neighbor told me where but it's overgrown I guess. Can you help me locate if this is not correct? I was looking all down the road on the North side between War Pony Ranch and the end of the section road to the east. I want to photograph all the markers. Thanks

Thank you Lloyd for the comment- I'm aware that my cousin Ted Pitts is married into your family. Be blessed always- in-laws are family too, its how we connect the leaves onto our family tree that makes all the difference.

Best wishes,

RE: Quincy Henry
Hey Lloyd,
There are quite a few Henry's that I either put in as new memorials or added fotos to, or both.
Since they are your family and you know all the info, like you said, you have 6 to put in, let's do it this way.
Pass along to me the control numbers of anyone that I am tied to and I will surrender the memorial to you, that way, as a family member, you will be able to do it justice. I am all about family and accuracy and as such, I have no problem surrendering control to you.
I went back and looked at some of the fotos that you added. They are they nice looking people of the era, I am envious that you actually have these photographs.
My genealogy search began in 1995 when I went searching for a foto of my granfather, James F. Coston. I never was lucky enough to score one but my search took me to North Carolina where I found the resting places, and some fotos, of his moter and some people from my mother's side.
It's addictive, isn't it ???
I'll go ahead and pass along John, Charlott & Leora Curry because I know who they are, if I control anyone else then let know.
Just let me know, James Coston

Lenora Curry & parents
Ok Lloyd,
All the fotos that I took over there are now posted. There are -more- Henry's but the 90+ degree heat was getting to me, I knew I might be in trouble when my dog "Presious" started spending all her time under shade trees, HA !! so I had to scoot.
I tied John & Charlott together but U will have to put them with Lenora since it's ur momerial.
FYI in case U are not aware of it, anything that U might want to retain the top position on the postings, put it is as picture or other, that way it doesn't move down the page as her obituary did when other items are added.
Have fun over there when U go. It was very clean, recently cut and lots of flowers were placed.
Bitmon is on the East side close to the fence to the left when U enter.
Lenora is on the West. Plot is visible as soon as U enter the gate kinda out about 45 degrees to the left, just in case U haven't been there before.
If something else pops up that U can't get resolved, let me know and I'll give it my best shot. Gone, James Coston

Leora Curry, Phelam
Morning Lloyd,
I have spent all morning putting in additions & markers @ the cemetery and living on a working ranch, I need to take a break to do some chores before it gets abmormally hot, HA !!!
I ran across a lot of Henry's and noticed Leora's maiden name is Henry. She is buried along with John & Charlott Henry and given the birth years, can I "assume" they are her parents ? If so, I will link everyone together.
Your requested foto will be posted in the morning.
Later James Coston

Lois Nelson's Plot information
Good morning, In case you would like to add the plot location, I thought I had better send it to you. The information came from the Skylawn office records and it is as follows:

RE: Lois Nelson
Hi Lloyd,

You are very welcome; it was my pleasure. It really is a beautiful place overlooking the ocean on one side, the Bay Area on another and mountains north and south.

Hi Lloyd,

Mission accomplished!

I had a few minutes, so I called Skylawn and found out the plot location; I wasn't certain they would give it to me, but they did. I will try and get out in the next few days to get a photograph.

Genealogy Meeting, Lawton
On Monday, Feb. 18, 2013, Wallace Moore will be the guest speaker at the Southwest Oklahoma Genealogical Association at the Lawton Public Library in Lawton. The meeting is free and open to the public. I previously told you the wrong topic. Mr. Moore will describe who the Freedmen were and how they came to be. He will discuss the influence they had on the development and growth of Oklahoma and nationally. Their story begins when the Freedman people were removed from their homes in the South to the Indian Territory. We will follow their tracks through the pre-Civil War time period to their life after they become free. Moore will describe the development of Freedman towns and end with a discussion of the disappearance of this group of African Americans.

Cowboy poet, author, historical re-enactor, Wallace Moore is a native Oklahoman, born and raised in the Seminole Freedman community of Nobletown near the present day town of Wewoka. He is a member of the Muskogee Creek Nation. For the last 20 years, he has served as a Living History Interpreter of the Buffalo Soldiers at the National Historical Museum at Fort Sill, OK. He is a retired US Army Sergeant Major and cofounder of Barkingwater Productions.

Jerry Young, Fort Sill Post Cemetery
I take a lot of photos, and usually I don't know much about the person or can't find anything.

Looking at Jerry's headstone, I estimated when he might have been in the service. It looked like the kind of marker used during and after the Civil War, so I looked at some Civil War records for all the men named Jerry Young who were listed in the U. S. Colored Troops.

It's good you have your photo at Find A Grave because that helped me narrow down that I needed to look for someone of African American descent.

I searched some at I did not find a Jerry Young who was in Company L, 10th U. S. Cavalry.

So then I noticed has U. S. Buffalo Soldiers Cavalry Records for 1866-1916. I found 2 records listed.

(1) Jerry Young, US Tenth Cavalry, enlisted man, private in Company L. The actual record is online at No date of birth or age.

(2) Jerry Young, US Tenth Cavalry, enlisted man, sergeant, Company L, Fort Sill, Indian Territory. He died on Oct. 21, 1870, by drowning in Cache Creek on Fort Sill, Indian Territory. No other information.

If you want me to scan these records and send them in an e-mail attachment to you, leave me a message at Find A Grave.

I notice you live in Oklahoma. On Monday, Feb. 18, at 7 p.m. at the Lawton Public Library, the speaker at the Southwest Oklahoma Genealogy Society meeting will talk about Buffalo Soldiers.

I hope the information I've given you helps you sort out whether this is your great grandfather.
