This is my picture when I was about 2 years old. I am retired now.------------------------------------------------------|
I have created a virtual cemetery for the children who were killed in the Oklahoma City bombing on April 19, 1995. They were on the second floor of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in the America's Kids Child Development Center. It includes the Director of the Center, 2 workers, and a visitor.
If you would like to pay your respects, it has been 17 years on April 19, 2012.
I loved Dick Clark, but I think it is a sad commentary of the times we live in where people are so caught up with movie stars and music stars, etc. Within "minutes" of Dick Clark's passing he had 700 plus messages left on his Find A Grave memorial page. Most of the little children who were killed in the bombing of their Day Care Center in Oklahoma City, have received less than 20 messages over the last 17 years, since they were killed.
Just a thought...

|Vicki G||Jessie Hubbard|
I have linked Jessie to her mother & father. I'm not sure where I found her mother's name as Florence Grimmitt. Is this an error?
I will be happy to transfer Jessie or any others I have that may be related to you so you can make corrections. They are not related to me, so just let me know.

The links have been made as you requested. Thanks.Have a great day.
|Penny Stafford||Hallie Graham Hubbard|
As requested, i have linked Hallie to her husband, Christopher Hubbard. I am a family history researcher. My interest in this family is Lucy Hubbard, the mother of Christopher Hubbard. Lucy was niece of my great grandmother. Do you have information on Lucy Hubbard Graham's death or descendants? Thank you.
|Floyd Lanny Martin||RE: CD disk|
If you find any body not on the list let me know. I am sure there are some out there. We just went to a little presentation at the Texas City Museum about the disaster. Amazing how many know so little about a local tragedy.
|Jan Wukasch Pelosi||Thank You!|
Thank you for providing me that link to the Handbook of Texas Online about the Texas City Explosion so that I could add that to my husband's father's memorial. I'm curious though as to how you picked up on it since his name isn't actually given in that link.
Also, I noted that you have created virtual cemeteries for many of the large disasters. Have you done one for the 1900 Great Hurricane in Galveston. That's one of great interest to me.
Thank you again.

I have always considered the "link" rule to mean clickable HTML links. If I put the URL as a plain text item, people can paste it into their address bars themselves and it does not create dead pathways on the Find A Grave servers if the site goes down.
|Jo Ann||William Voiles|
I have linked him to both his parents and added the ifo you sent about his death. Thanks.

Thanks for the update. I had never heard of the Texas City Disaster before - learned something new today. :)

From the Find A Grave Frequently Asked Questions:
What can I include in a non-famous bio?
Genealogical information about the subject can be included in the biography.
The biography should be about the person for which the memorial is made with preference to an original biography. If a cause of death is added, it should be short and to the point, such as "Murder victim", "Suicide", etc. The bio should not look like a case file.
Graphic bios are not acceptable.
Links to other websites or email addresses are not allowed within any memorial.
These guidelines will be added to and updated from time to time. Find A Grave reserves the right to edit any biography submitted to the site to conform to these and any future posted standards.

Per your suggestion, I have linked the Infant Milstead to his father, James Leroy "Roy" Milstead, #90654369
