RE: Thank you!
I don't know where you are getting this "hero" stuff? If I run across data, i.e. memorials that aren't on Find A Grave. I just take the few minutes to enter them. Somebody somewhere is looking for that memorial that I just entered. And I certainly appreciate all the memorials that others have posted that I have been looking for, they just happened to find them before I did. Thanks for the compliment though, it means alot to me, seriously. I also noticed on your profile that we do have several surnames in common.

George Robison, Oakridge Cemetery
Hi Nancy. George Robison is my husband's 3rd great grandfather. Over the past couple of years, we have done extensive genealogy research for his family. In late July, we drove from Michigan to Springfield to find his grave, with only a general idea of where it was. Finding no marker, we spoke with the cemetery office and they verified that we were looking in the right place. As soon as we do a little more research to verify that he is indeed buried in this location, we are having a marker put there.

Do you know where his wife, Harriet Olivia (Littrell) Robison, is buried? We have requested her death record from Tillman County, Oklahoma and have not heard back yet. Per Oakridge Cemetery records, she is not buried with George. She died in 1926, with him preceding her in 1907, so I'm not sure if she remarried. I am very interested to find out where she is buried, perhaps get her obituary. Please let me know if you have any of this information. I will let you know when we have a marker placed on his grave. I don't expect it to be a very quick process.
Thank you.

Hi Nancy,

You are very welcome. I have several hundred additional photos to process for posting. If I find additional Simms Family markers, I'll let you know about them too.

RE: Alice E. Young
Nancy, it was my pleasure to add a photo. I have tried 3 times to get you a better picture but they continue to look the same. I did tell her how excited you were to have found her. If I can help in any other way, please let me know. Kay (Katie)

RE: John H. Young
I don't have your email anymore, so will tell you here what I know. Roselawn did combine more than one cemetery into its current title, but I don't know how long ago that was. I know they have confirmed that John H. Young is currently buried in Block 13, Lot 438, Space 3. It's an easy location to find because it is close to a road. They also gave me the name of a person's headstone right beside John H. Young's (Walter Bates), which I found. So I know I was in the right spot. I'm sorry I don't have better information for you.

Hi Nancy,
Yes, Robert and Minnie are buried next to each other if my memory serves me right. I'm glad to put relatives with their kin.

Chillson/Chilson family
Hi Nancy, I see you're interested in the Chilson family. Which line of Chilsons are you interested in? I am working on Water Sherman Chilson's line. I descend from his son Asahel; but at the moment am putting info together for his brother Waters II.
