Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am retired and enjoy working on genealogy as a hobby. I have a masters degree from the University of Oklahoma and I'm using my research skills to hunt down my ancestors. is a terrific web site.
My ancestors include but are not limited to:
Allison, Campbell, Morris, Johnson, Holdsworth, Baird, Kirkpatrick, Phillippi, Worley, Sweeney, Vaught, Watson, Dale, Wheeler, Hoyt, Newman

I make an effort to connect husbands, wives and families using obituaries and census records.

As many of you know, I have spent hours taking photos in the Rose Hill Burial Park in Oklahoma City in order to create memorials. I also do research in the Oklahoma Historical Society Library for some of my memorials.

Member: Oklahoma Historical Society, National Trust for Historic Preservation, Civil War Trust, Friends of Mt Vernon, Colonial Williamsburg Foundation, National Women's History Museum, Pulaski Co KY Historical Society, Cornerstone Genealogical Society (PA), Morrow Co OH Genealogical Society, Osborne Co KS Historical Society, Logan Co OK Genealogical Society.

Use the "Suggest a Correction" feature on the appropriate memorial to submit information or any requests. I follow the Find-A-Grave guidelines regarding the transfer of memorials. Any transfer requests should only be for direct relatives within four generations. This would be siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.

If you send a request for transfer of a memorial, please explain exactly how you descend, generation-by-generation, from that person.

My photos may be used in your family trees. They are not to be used in cemetery books/CDs that are to be sold.

Dora Adaline (Elliott) Allen memorial
Hi Janet: I have sent thru a couple of SACs for this memorial. Dora was the daughter of Beverly R. Baker and Anna Akers, but later either was adopted or took the name of her stepfather Nathan Elliott. I am helping one of our cousins, who is a great great grand-daughter of Dora's, with her family tree. Thank you for all you do.

I am aware there are photos for the Doggett's at Rose Hill. I was hoping you might be willing to take new ones so their names and dates are visible, not hidden behind plants. Thank you.

RE: Ben Harding White

Your response is a little ambiguous. You initially give me approval to use your photograph of the grave of Ben Harding White, then you add a restriction.

I'm not sure how I want to use the photograph, if at all. I may want to have a page per member of my grandfather's WWI army unit. I was also thinking of a collage of graves of those who served in this unit. This decision is at least a year away, I simply don't know at this point.

So, I'll restate, is it permissible to use your photograph of the grave of Ben Harding White in any way I want? My goal is to honor my grandfather and those who served with him. Yes, it would likely be with a for-profit book or magazine article, or maybe both. I don't know at this time since I'm still gathering information. I won't know what direction I'll go until I complete gathering information.

Thank you!

Bryan Anderson

Sure. What I object to is the use of Find A Grave photos to publish cemetery books using our photos.

Ben Harding White
Dear Janet,

I am researching my paternal grandfather's WWI army unit, Company B, 355th Infantry, 89th Division. According to the History and Roster of the 355th Infantry, Ben Harding White of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma was a member of this unit.

I'm not sure where I'm going with my project, but I have aspirations of publishing something someday. So, would it be permissible to use your photograph of the grave of Ben Harding White in any publications I might have in the future?

Thank you,

Bryan Anderson

Ben H. White
Dear Janet,

I am researching my paternal grandfather's WWI army unit, Company B, 355th Infantry, 89th Division. According to the History and Roster of the 355th Infantry, Ben H. White was a member of this unit.

On your findagrave post (Find A Grave Memorial# 114461328) for Ben. H. White, there is no indication he was part of this unit. Might you know whether he was part of this unit?

Thank you! Any information is greatly appreciated.

With warm regards,

Bryan Anderson
