Bio Photo LAST ON LINE: 9 Oct 2016

Retired Federal Law Enforcement Officer with over 29 years of service. I am also the wife of a retired US Army soldier and the mother of a soldier who was injured in Iraq from an IED but was able to complete his tour of duty! SUPPORT THE TROOPS!!!! Please Honor all our military without complaining on memorials!

My memorials are lopsided as I manage a deceased cousin's contributions to Findagrave.

TRANSFERS: I follow Findagrave's guidelines of the 4-generation rule for transfers; aunts/uncles/cousins are not included in the transfer rule. Consider creating a virtual cemetery to keep your relatives together. If the individual in the 4-generation rule transfer request is closer related to me or my family members, then I will maintain the memorial(s).

DEATH CERTIFICATES are welcomed on my memorials as they are in the public domain and, although at times there are errors, they can provide a wealth of information. I add them so individual's who cannot afford have access to their relative(s) documents. It's my way of paying back.

Findagrave is again changing special flowers and modifying bios if they don't approve.

SUGGESTIONS: For those making suggestions, please research and provide the researched information for me to update. Additionally; 1: If someone has a duplicate memorial, courtesy is to ask that individual to delete it FIRST before asking Findagrave to get involved, and 2. When you receive an edit request please DO NOT update the information you received and then decline the edit you received - that is just NOT cool!

HEADSTONE PHOTO VOLUNTEERS-If you volunteer and post headstone photos, please take a photo of the COMPLETE marker and please take the time to ensure your photos are posted as right side UP (not sideways or upside down). I find more and more that some individuals crop the bottom of the markers off & some post photos sideways and blame their computer program - especially on military grave sites, which does an injustice to our veterans. You took the time to take the photo, then PLEASE take the time to crop & post the headstone photo correctly.

Please don't create additional IDs and claim photo requests because you have used your allotted photo claims or you fail to take the photo in a timely manner and then reclaim it under another one of your IDs (which is illegal by Findagrave rules). We know who you are and, should the need arise, you will be reported to the Administrators for abusing the system.

SSDI-Regarding the "Last Residence" in the SSDI: This is the last address of record, not necessarily where the individual died. Please do not ask me to list it as the place of death on memorial pages - to do so would only be a guess.

I work hard on Findagrave and have sponsored quite a few memorials. Please be a contributor and not just a person who adds names. It's great to see the people who do provide research.

RE: C Bess Barnhardt Memorial
Wondered about the name, but you never know what parents were thinking. Thanks.

RE: Check out Owen's Memorial
Yep, he'd probably hit you with that ole cigar. I found memorials for a couple of his brothers in Bethel Hill Cemetery in McCurtain County. I am going to look for his parents. His mother may be buried in another county. A Choctaw man works at the library & may know the Bakers. I'll talk to him, if I find Owen's parents, I'll send links to you & you can put them on Owen's memorial. Thanks again ~ It's been a pleasure working with you on Find A Grave. Take Care & Have a Nice Day.

RE: Check out Owen's Memorial
I like your thinking. Yes, the obits are in the newspapers ~ Public Knowledge ~ and you can go to the library & get copies of any obits you want. I know, I do it all the time. I get as many obits added to memorials as I can. I have gotten many "Thank You's" from people living in other states who can't get the old Oklahoma obits; and I have gotten chewed out a few times about how it's against the rules. They need to read the rules closer. I read that if a person wants their name removed, contact Find A Grave & they will remove it. So, what's the problem? Some people. Again ~ Thank You. I think Owen's memorial looks great. Good Job. If you ever need any obits from McCurtain County, let me know. I go to the library 2 or 3 times a month & will gladly look for information. Have a nice day.

RE: Owen J Baker
I can't post it on his memorial, I can send it to you and you can "copy" & "paste" and put it on his memorial. I appreciate you adding it. I think the memorials are so much nicer when there is some info about the person. I know that most of the descendants will really appreciate getting that info about a relative. Thanks

RE: William and Bernice Ellwanger
You well deserve to call yourself Sherlocks Cousin. You can spin circles around me when it comes to genealogy research. You could hang out your shingle as a professional....or do you? Naturally I added much of the Ellwanger information you uncovered to my database. Now I'll have to go back to my Ancestry family tree and amend it. Many thanks for all you've done & are doing in your research.
