Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a schoolteacher and a mother of four girls. I have been doing genealogy for about 20 years.

Visiting cemeteries is a favorite pastime and my daughters are getting into stone rubbings and photography also. I would like to exchange photos of headstones with people who are willing to visit the cemeteries that are located in the towns where my relatives live and I am willing to do the same. I am in Bethany, Oklahoma and will do lookups and photos any cemetery within the Oklahoma County area. If you are not sure if the cemetery is in my area please email me anyway and I will find out where it is located.

Photo Use Permission

Feel free to use my photos in your personal research since after all, that's one reason I take the photos. I have received a lot of requests recently to post these photos on Ancestry - please consider this as permission to do so, but PLEASE give a photo credit to "Shelly K Cherry (#12116408) - Find A Grave" as I have spent so much time and effort to take and post all these photos.

RE: Josiah Strong
The books for the Strong family can be downloaded and/or viewed online for free. The book is called "The History of the Descendants of Elder John Strong of Northampton, Mass." and it has a few volumes. It's a good starting point although it's a bit of a pain in the neck figuring out the system. You can find them at

It's a great site and many of the old genealogy books you might find at the library can be found here.

Obviously, they won't be complete but that's where the internet can help fill in the blanks.

Josiah Strong [51641719]
Hi Shelly,

I looked at the suggestion for the Josiah Strong memorial I made and concluded that the memorial you cited (21794273) is not the same person and it is very incorrect.

That Josiah was born 17 Aug 1705 in Northampton MA to Samuel Strong and Ruth Sheldon and he died 03 Feb 1761 in Sharon CT. He was not married to Hannah Fuller but to Elizabeth Fowler and Hannah Smedley.

A correct (and later) memorial for that Josiah is 92883438. Technically, Jan Franco's memorial is older but it really should be deleted! I'll send her a note.

Thanks for the new information. I appreciate it. Please delete my last two messages. I don't know what happened. A senior moment I guess.

RE: William Perham
Oh yes of course. I think my dad or sister took the photo. He is our relative as well. If you are on ancestry I invited you to our tree. We have his death cert posted as well.

Use of my photos

Yes you may use my photos; but I do require that you source me as photographer and Find a Grave as their original location.

Thank you so much for being so considerate and asking permission...

Shelly, although I'm not sure which photo you are speaking of, you have my permission to use any photo that I have added to Findagrave. Thank you for asking.

All the best,

RE: Sutherlands in Dils Cemetery
I don't have the Sutherlands in Dils Cemetery Check your messages Terri & Stan have those I believe. I transfered Two Southerlands to you, I believe. If you want to use the photo's in ancestory that is fine.
