Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been a Find A Grave photo volunteer since I was 11 years old and have enjoyed it very much. I have participated in Wreaths Across America day for three years and have laid wreaths that have been ordered on veterans' graves in three cemeteries in Comanche Co., OK. It's a part of giving back to them what they have given to us. Jacob Hooper aka J. C. Hooper

RE: Eliza Akers, Highland Cemetery, Lawton, OK

again, many thanks for going the extra mile to secure this information on the Akers family. If not for you, much of this information would not be available for others. Thanks sincerely for all you have done..........regis

Murl Smith Photo
Thanks for the photo. You may have noticed that there was already a photo posted for Murl. That's because Krystal had filled my request for Murl's husband... and she posted her photo (of their combined stone) on Murl's memorial also - but she apparently did not upload it as a filled photo request - thus it remained as an open request - and I did not notice it either (and delete the request as I probably should have). Sorry for unnecessarily troubling you. --John.

RE: Depew Burials, Highland Cemetery, Lawton, OK
Thank you so much. I will forward the info to my father. He just had a marker placed for his paternal grandmother.

Thanks again!

Thanks so much for your efforts in securing the photo and adding the info you discovered on his death. I will certainly order copies if it does not get posted to his memorial as you requested.

I appreciate your contributions to FindAGrave.

Sincerely, regis

E Depew
Thank you for your research. I forwarded your info to my father and perhaps he will purchase a marker. I am curious if by chance you verified the location for Edward Depew with the cemetery office? It means a lot to my father for his grandparents to have markers. Thank you again!

Hi J.C.

I can't thank you enough for taking time to visit my grandparents graves and take these pictures! I was there about two years ago and could only find the "other side" of the family and even the cemetery office was of no help. 1,100 miles is a long way for me to travel to make another try!

Again, thank you from all of us who rely on others to do what we cannot. You are certainly very prolific and good at what you do!

Best regards

Dear J. C.,
Thank you so much for the photos. I particularly appreciate the close ups of the dates. Verification of family oral history is important to me. Thank you for your time and dedication.

Favor Please
Dear Friend,
Some time back you went to take a photo for me of the grave of my dad's baby that died at birth, or he may have died within hours. Any way you found that there was no head stone for him. My mother was suppose to put one there for him but did not, now she lives here in Colorado for me.

It eats at me that that this baby has nothing to show that he even existed at all. I do not know what the steps are for placing a marker there for him. I can never get through to the cemetery, does any one ever work there?lol I need to find out how to get a hold of them to find out what to do about getting a marker or if I just call the place that makes them. Could you help me find out how to get a hold of the cemetery?

Once I get a marker placed I would like a photo. You are such a good person. You found no marker but took photo's to point out where he is buried. That tells me a lot about how much you care.

If you are unable to do this, I understand. Life can be very demanding.

My dad died in 2011, he was a fantastic dad to my brother and I. He was not our biological father but the word step child, step parent was never used. The baby was from his first marriage, his name is Terri Lee Johnston, born 30 May 1957 and he also has another son born in 1956. Dad has not seen him since he was a toddler. His ex wife took off with him. I know I may be telling you more than you want to hear. So this is not just putting down a marker for a baby who should be remembered but this is also for my dad. I could have never asked for a better dad in the world.

Thank you Mr. Hooper.

Your Friend in Colorado,
Susan Perry
