Oaklawn Cemetery:

A special thanks to Judy Meador Sanders for all the additional information she sends to me to add to the Sulphur, Oaklawn cemetery listings.

In addition, I would like to thank my two young daughters who help me photograph memorials and assist in watching for duplicate memorials as I input them.

Update: I have begun inputting using a spreadsheet. It only catches exact duplicates. Therefore, when I upload the photographs I will be deleting any duplicates I inadvertently created. It just goes so much quicker that it's worth the temporary duplications. Please understand, I have a lot going on in life and so pictures are coming slowly but will come.

CORLEY Cemetery - I walked this cemetery on July 21, 2013 and do hope I photographed all legible stones.... at least that was my intent. I am not related to anyone there so if you want any transfers from me, feel free to ask.

RE: Lawana Janet Watson
Thanks, Lois. I appreciate it & know how tedious things can get at times. All in all, it is still very enjoyable.

RE: Opal Laster
I tried ressending. It wouldn't allow me to..It told me this: "We can not proceed because of the reason(s) listed below. Please press the back button in your browser, correct the problem(s) and try again.
There is already a pending relationship information edit for this memorial.
The pending edit was submitted by you.
If you would like to re-submit your edit, please delete your existing edit for this memorial by visiting your Pending Edits page."
I just need to add the father. not the mother, she is already linked to the memorial. This is the father: Hayden McMillan Huffines, memorial # 62839142. If you can, please add him for me.

RE: Opal Laster
LOL, I'm pretty confused. I'm not sure I understand what you are saying. I thought I did it right. perhaps I did not? You said that I "listed as unknown". I don't know what you mean, I don't recall listing anyone as unknown, perhaps it was a typo?
I wanted to add Opal's mother and father (if that is what we are talking about, i realize I've done a lot of add requests lately) I think I was trying to connect Opal to both her mother and her father? sorry for any mistunderstanding, if you could help clear this up for me I would appreciate it.
Thank you,

RE: Billy Wills or Willis?
I am pretty sure it is Wills. A Billy Wills and Augustine Hughes married in Gainesville (Cooke County) Tx 2-25-1972. She is listed as being born in 1934. The Atoka County OK 1940 census lists Billy J. Wills with parents of Wiley M. and Winnie Wills. I would assume that there was an error made by the individual doing the etching on the military tombstone. I know errors are sometimes made on them - my own father's military tombstone has the date of death wrong. You and your daughters are to be commended for the work you have done and the time spent entering grave stone information.

RE: Pierce, Charles
I have learned that it is not the funeral home's responsibility to add the date of death to a tombstone. The normal procedure is for the family to contact the company they purchased the gravestone from to make arrangements for the date of death to be added. I was told that sometimes the family does not know it's their responsibility to do this. I will try to make contact with someone in his family.

RE: Pierce, Charles
I will try to get in touch with a family member or someone there in Sulphur to see if they can't get the date of death etched on the gravestone. I would have thought the funeral home handling the burial would have taken care of it when he was buried but guess it was either overlooked or not their responsibility.

Jacob was not a half sibling. my great grandmother had 12 children and neither she nor my great grandfather were ever married to anyone but each other. His mother was Matilda Emma Crouse and his father was Charlie Monroe Crouse. I had noticed you have him as a half sibling.
