Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have a deep love for cemeteries. I love the art, the history, and the untold stories about each resident. I find it peaceful and thoroughly relaxing to walk through cemeteries. I'm working on several but the main one at the moment is Oak Grove Cemetery in Conway, Faulkner County, Arkansas.

I am a member of the organization called Preservation of African American Cemeteries
(PAAC).

I was born and raised here in Arkansas as were both of my parents and all of my grandparents.I started searching my genealogy in the Sixth Grade as a project and haven't stopped since.

Sansom information
Hello. I am researching my Grandmother's family (She was a Sansom) and I reached a dead end at her Grandfather William Wiley Sansom. Gertrude "Lillie" Tally's mother was a Sansom and Grandfather was John Franklin Sansom. My Sansom's are from Chilton County (I was born and raised) and Dallas County. I've found one family in Dallas County but they moved on to Texas before William was born. There were Sansom families in various Alabama counties and I'm trying to make some sort of connection. Do you have any Sansom family information? Have you are a family member done the DNA so we may compare? I have mine, my mothers and my Grandmothers DNA. Thank you! Tim

African American Cemetery preservation
So happy to hear about your organization. I have been trying to find the identities of the African Americans that are buried in our Caddo county Oklahoma cemeteries. Would love to learn more about your organization.

RE: Lora Ransom
I am the Larry (Larry Ransom) that commented on this memorial recently. Lora was my grandmother on my fathers side of the family.

Lora was a twin. Her sister was Cora and she had brother(s) also. Her maiden name was McGlothlan. Beyond that, I will have to ask Dad to write something up.

We don't have man written records of prior to 1973 due to our home being destroyed by a Tornado. A few months later when our phone service was restored at our new home, dad got a call from a man who lived across town from us. My Grandparents wedding license would up in the front seat of his car!

What type of background/ bio are you looking for? Such as that provided in Obituaries?

Thanks,

Oliver Family
Hello I have been searching for my grandmother Bessie Oliver she died between 1924 and 1930. Last place she lived was Pierce Creek, Ar. Her father was William Oliver he died in 1904. I seen someone left a note saying William was buried in Winkler Cemetery, Faulkner Co, Ar. William remarried after Bessie's mother to Mattie Reason and had her half brother James Edward Oliver.
This may be an abandon graveyard. It said there was a rock as William's headstone. Is there any listings of abandon graveyards? Do you know where Winkler Graveyard is? Any help is appreciated. Thank You Barb

Hi Libby. Willie Augustas Talley McDaniel was my grandmother. I don't know too many relatives on the Talley side. I would love to email you and compare notes. Are you a member of ancestors.com?

Margaret Robinson Wilbur at Forest Home Cemetery
Hi! There was not an individual grave marker for her, but she is buried in the same lot as her parents.

If you would like better photos for William and Anna Burkhart posted, please add photo requests for them and I will post the photos that I took.

Unfortunately, the only two names on the large Burkhart monument are for William and Anna. The rest of the sides do not contain any names although they were designed to have more names engraved.

RE: Debbie Summers
I'm not sure. Since you transferred ownership to me, I should be the only one with access to make changes to it, especially delete the entire memorial. I think an amdmin had to have done it but I have no idea why, and you know how hard it is to communicate with anyone from the site. It's just so odd and disturbing.
