Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born August 29, 1943 in Powell, Wyoming. I joined the US Navy in 1963 and spent 2 years in Southeast Asia in the Philippines and Vietnam. I then attended the U of Colorado for a year and a half under the NESEP program and was then transfered to Europe for 4 years, stationed at Rota, Spain. After that I was sent to Washington D.C. for 4 years. At that time I retired and attended Central State University in Edmond, Oklahoma, where I attained a BS in Mortuary Science. I owned and operated two funeral homes, one in Moline, Kansas, and the other in Sedan, Kansas, for 26 years. I retired from the business in 2001. I am currently residing in Wichita, Kansas, and am an accountant for Wal Mart Corp.

I am married, the father of two daughters. I have traced my ancestry back several centuries and am still in the process of chasing down my brickwalls.

As a former funeral director, I find cemeteries fascinating and love to contemplate past lives and histories of the families there.


I am more than happy to make corrections and add relationship links but am curtailing (not stopping) transferring memorials due to growing misunderstanding of what Find A Grave is about by those discovering the site for the first time. The time members have put into their efforts working together and sharing information is not up for grabs based on same-name surname or lineage and I will not do any of these type of transfers.

If it makes any difference, James died as an infant so, I'm a probably the closest relative as he has in this world. Thanks

Hi Del,

Thank you for adding my Great-Uncle James' memorial 14822109. I understand your position on transferring memorials. I currently manage James' parents (my great-great grandparents) and most of his siblings (the one's I found so far) including my grandfather Oliver. If you feel inclined to transfer his memorial to me I would be obliged. If not, that's OK too. My member number is 47505435.

Thank you for all your work on this site.

William T Mathis

The birth year for William T Mathis is incorrect. He was born about 1866, which is what is shown on his headstone. However, in the information listing, it gives his birth year as 1888.

Thank you for your time.

She is my 2x paternal great grandmother. The birth date you show on the memorial (20 May 1852) does not match the gravestone (29 May 1852). Nor does it match another family document of family births (29 May 1852). Can you please check your reference for the birth date shown?
Thank you, Gai

Ralph Hawkins
Nothing is written in stone but I believe this Ralph Hawkins belonged to Clifford O. Hawkins and Hulda Linstruim.

Thanks for letting me know--I'll refrain from requesting more transfers and will instead plan to send Bios in the future. In the meantime it will be good to figure out if we are cousins or just cousins of cousins. Either way, though, you probably have much info that I can add to my Meek family spreadsheet, since most of the info I have for descendants of Mariah Meek and John J Cooper comes from census records and obits, not from family members themselves.

Thank you
Thank you for the transfer of William and Maggie Holeman. My husband was so excited and I know his dad will be also. I was wondering if you could do two more transfers? I was looking at more family history last night and noticed that I forgot to add James H. Brewster (24361012) and his wife, Anna Mills Glenn (23124489) to my last email. Their son, Daniel Frederick, had a special bond with Michael, my husband.

Thank you again for the transfers and I am sorry I forgot to add James and Anna.

Hope you have a good day.
