Bio and Links
Bio Photo My name is Rita June Collvins Mayfield. I was born February 20, 1942 in Jackson County, Oklahoma. I married Vernon Roy Mayfield on April 16, 1971. My primary hobbies are gardening, oil painting, genealogy and of course cemeteries. There is something comforting about strolling through the cemetery and reading the stones. I have recently moved to Cordell, Oklahoma, but have lived in Oklahoma most of my life. Once an Okie, always an Okie. I am slowly trying to get all my family memorialized here. My virtual cemeteries represent my family, unless otherwise noted. I am going to make them public once again, and hope I can leave them without the misuse that occurred previously.

If I have a memorial that is anyone in your family, and is unrelated to me or my husband, I will be glad to hand it over to you as I don't adhere to the 4 generation only guideline, just contact me. I count it a joy and a job well done if I am able to pass on your loved one to you. It is my number two reason for doing this, second only to wishing to save all the old and battered stones from being lost forever. If you find errors on any of the information on my memorials, please get in touch with me with corrections. You are welcome to use my tombstone photos on your family files and family trees, just note where you got it.

Please don't post death certificates or census reports in the picture area on my memorials. They don't belong there and are detrimental to the looks of the memorial, plus it takes up room where photos could be placed.

RE: Hazel Baker
No I am not. But my husband is related to all of the Townsend's that are buried in Altus Cem, but he could not place Hazel. We were just wondering how she came into the picture, but don't think she is any kin to the other Townsends. Thank you for getting back in touch with me, I appreciate it very much. Carolyn

RE: Sim Barrett
Thanks for the prompt reply. If you could change the parents to be John McDaniel Barrett (117517341) - his mother is Matilda Jane Smith but I do not see a memorial page for her.

Parents of Sim T. Barrrett
Hi Rita,

My name is Jerry Barrett, I am the great great grandson of Nichola Defane Barrett (Find-A-Grave memorial # 25256400).

I noticed that you have Nicholas and his wife Sarah listed as the parents of Sim T. Barrett (Find-A-Grave memorial # 25157873).

I show the parent of Sim to be John McDaniel Barrett (117517341) and Matilda Jane Smith.

I would be interested in how you tied Sim in with Nicholas.

Robert Tate Simpson
Hi there! I was wondering what your source is for Robert Tate Simpson's parents. I have been searching and haven't been able to find anything. Any help you can give would be appreciated! He was my great-great grandfather.

Rita, please forgive me for my tardiness in thanking you for these transfer. I really appreciate you very much. I would also like to ask your permission to use your photos on my family tree, if that would be ok with you? Again, many thanks and blessings. Sarah

RE: Elmer Grover

I think once the genealogy bug bites you, you're in it for life. :) Online access has really revolutionized the information process, hasn't it? So many records and so much information right at your fingertips where before you'd have to write or physically visit everywhere. It's definitely more cost effective as well. Glad you're doing well!

Nelson & Ben J Harrington
I request that you transfer the following graves to my care: Nelson Harrington # 17637793. Nelson is my Great Grandfather, and Ben J Harrington # 17637745, this is the son of Nelson Harrington. I believe he is termed a cousin to me. I appreciate you entering the interred in the Sod Cemetery, as folks like me don't reside anywhere near Oklahoma. Again I thank you for your continuous work.

I just sent a request (through the edit tab) for Birdie to be linked to her parents.
Henry P McCune #31628762
Altha Elizabeth Addington Stewart #31628682
Then I saw your contributor page... if Birdie is not related to you or your husband, I would love to manage her memorial page. Birdie is the half-sister of my great grandmother, Annie Pierce.
