Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born in Ardmore, Carter Co, OK where my husband jokingly says that I thought Noah's Ark had landed.

For thirty plus years I have been involved in genealogy. When my mother died, she left some notes about a few ancestors she had uncovered and hoped I would continue her research. That was the hook-in-the-jaw that changed my life. I only regret that I have missed out on so many years that I could have used. Alas, all those family stories that went in one ear and out the other, and all those family members who took so much information to the grave with them.

I am, however, thankful for the tools that are now available and for FindAGrave, a platform that I have spent many hours gaining from and contributing to.

If I have created a memorial for a member your family, who isn't related to me, and YOU CAN ADD INFORMATION TO THEIR BIO (not just family links), I will be glad to transfer it to you. However, many have received a transfer/transfers & have never added anything. This isn't fair to kin who may come along later who can do so.

An exception to the above are my Bell, Dodson, & Love ancestors and kin, most of whom have numerous descendants. Much of the information contained in their memorials is the result of many years of tedious research, and as new information comes to light, I would like to be able to make those changes. For these memorials please follow FindAGrave guidelines for transfers.

Instructions for ALL REQUESTS for corrections, additional information, or transfers:

1. Go to the memorial page, which has an "Edit" tab located on the upper right side of the memorial.
2. Click on the "Edit" tab, then click on the Suggest a correction or provide additional information link, which opens a message page.
3. Type in your message.

Making a request this way insures that no mistakes are made, because it takes me to the exact memorial.

Thanks for your understanding.

I was wondering if you were related to this girl in any way and if not if you would be willing to transfer her memorial to me? She was murdered and the murder remains unsolved to this day. She would be my sister's sister-in-law. Thank you so much. Angie

RE: Ardmore, OK

That's so funny because you have the talent to save a lot of inexperienced researchers hours and hours and give them the opportunity to make connections that would enhance any line they were trying to connect. You love it which is obvious by your work. Please don't pay any attention to the negative volunteers, they just don't get it. I remind myself all the time that there is a place for them on find a grave too because they have their own agenda. I always try to appreciate everyone but it's a sheer joy to come across someone like you. I consider you one of the best on Find A Grave and I'm sure glad I came across your work because there were times I found myself getting grumpy. LOL
