Bio and Links
Bio Photo I love helping people however I can plus this is getting me out of the house for some much needed exercise.

I am employed with the Oklahoma Forensic Center, formally known as Eastern State Hospital, in Vinita for 26 years now. I drive by the cemetery several times every day. I have always enjoyed touring cemeteries and looking at the old headstones. Once when driving through the cemetery and admiring all the Memorial Day flowers I told my 3 year old grandson that his great-grandpa had a sister there but I always had trouble finding her. He gave me such a sympathetic look and said, "Well granny, that's probably because she is way down under the ground somewhere." I thought what a brilliant conclusion for a 3 year old that has never been talked to about death.

Panola M Armstrong #37998477
Hi you have added a photo to this Panola Armstrong memorial but this person is not the same one whose tombstone you have photographed.

The tombstone in your photo is for Panola Parrish born 18 Aug 1858 and died 23 Mar 1891 in Craig Co OK. She married George A Armstrong on 22 Mar 1874 in OK.

I just thought you might want to get this changed before the other person deletes it, however I don't believe anyone has created a memorial for Panola Parrish Armstrong yet.

George and Lillian Franklin
Hello Jackie, Just wanted to ask you if you'll add this couple together.. You listed the wife, Lillian Franklin and DJ Crane listed the husband, George W. Franklin, both in the Fairview Cemetery, Vinita, OK. Their granddaughter is Lynne Loss and was so disturbed because she could not find a listing for either of them anywhere and she knows exactly where they are buried, but I did finally find both of the listings just this night. I have the two volumes of cemetery listings for the Fairview cemetery done by Dorothy Nix and Wanda Norton,but neither of them is listed in the indexes. BUT, I find them submitted here on Find A Grave. I have helped her and others work on this same Franklin, etc families of the Vinita area so I was familiar with their names/info.
Rather than ask both of you to link them together and get duplicates, etc., I thought that I'd just write to you this time. I have written with DJ Crane previously and that went well. I don't recall that you and I have exchanged notes.
So here is the husband's memorial # as DJ Cranes gives it, George W. Franklin #88547674 and the wife, Lillian Franklin is #77840708, submitted by you. I know that this will please Lynne and will help others if they are looking for them.

Bair Stone in Fairview Cemetery
Hello Jackie,

I'm working on my family genealogy and have hit a dead pun intended. Charlie F. Bair was my grand uncle and you photographed his stone earlier. All we know about his wife is her name Vinnie Marshall. I do know she was born Dec.23, 1899 and died Dec.15, 1988 in Vinita. They were married Nov.22, 1952 in Harrison, Arkansas. I don't know if she was married before or anything else about her but I would appreciate if you could look for her stone in the cemetery. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks so much!

RE: John White, Memorial #97526257
Your willingness to assist me is so very much appreciated. Wow! Finding his DOD and location of his grave has been one of those genealogy walls that has seemed so insurmountable.

I hope this meager information will help: John David White was born 5 Jul 1848, Sevier Co., TN. I believe he died after 1900 because I found 1900 Census, Vinita, OK, I found a John White, 43, with a wife named Nancy so he may have remarried. His first wife, Sarah (Thomas) White, Findagrave memorial # 8636162, died in 1892.) She is buried at Fairview Cemetery. No headstone shown or exact location is given for her grave site, either. Perhaps they are buried close together. I don't have a record of his ever living in Osage County, I just don't know.

If it helps to know David's Daughter, Josephine E White, married Sewell W Hall. Her in-laws, Duncan D Hall and Mary Elizabeth (Schrimsher) (Hall)(Summers) Kenworthy are also buried at Fairview.

I'm hoping this little tidbit will help you further assist me. Again, I can't begin to convey how much I appreciate your help, Ms. Jackie.

John White, Memorial #97526257
Ms. Jackie,
Thank you for listing John White, Memorial # 97526257, interred at the Fairview Cemetery in Vinita, OK.

Per chance would you have the plot, section number or any other way I might locate the grave site. Do you have access to information that would indicate what date he was buried there? Perhaps the name of the register book it came from? I am 95% sure this is my gr gr grandfather. He married to Sarah Elizabeth Thomas, who is also buried at Fairview Cemetery. Any further information you may be able to provide would be greatly appreciated. Thank you. I will be looking forward to hearing from you.
