research on Mahoata Cross
I am trying to find detailed info about Mahoata Cross, she was my paternal great=grandmother. How did you get this info on her? Do you have any further info to share, specifically on her Native American heritage. I am trying to pass this along to my children. Any assistance you can provide would be greatly appreciated.

Parents of Mary Elizabeth Barber Strickland --Barber/Walton
In reference to Mary Elizabeth Barber Strickland, Find A Grave# 13862920 b. Oct. 22, 1822 d. Apr. 3, 1898

I have them as William Barber (Barbour) and Mary Polly Walton.

BUT, I have hit a dead end here.I cannot find William or Mary - where are they, who are they marriage date, birth, death, anything.

Do you know anything, any hint or family rumor will help me start.

Many thanks!!
Thank you so very much for adding my mother's obituary. The service that you and other volunteers provide for those of us who are unable to visit the gravesites of our loved ones is invaluable. She would appreciate your work, too, since she was an avid genealogist. Thanks again!

RE John Q. Adams
He joined the Dallas Police Department 9/26/60 and his badge number was 1704. He retired 5/5/81.

Born 8/5/34. Died 12/30/87. His FindAGrave memorial is #41016138. The photo of his headstone features an engraved DPD badge ... very impressive!

Navarro County TX has a very active genealogy library and they offer a lot of online data. You may find info about your cousin there.

My contact at DPD will attempt to get of scan of Adams' photo from personnel archives if it is available. I'll let you know.

Chris Walker
Thank you so much for the transfer of the Chris Walker memorial. Up until several years ago I knew only of a few Texas Walker's of my immediate family and now I'm beginning to discover other members of this family in both Texas and Oklahoma. It was especially exciting to find that both sons of Christopher C. Walker Sr (Memorial# 32930147) were police officers since I am a retired officer myself.

I still have several friends who are Dallas police officers and one is an avid history buff ... I will contact him about your John Adams query and we'll see what comes of it.

Again, thanks so much..... Johnny

Vina Reed
Concerning the duplication, Vina Reeds and over 200 more memorial have been put by Will in the wrong cemetery. The Lincoln cemetery is on the west side of Nowata Memorial cemetery but was set up for African Americans. It is separately managed and owned. If you check the official maps you will see that Nowata memorial is rectangular shaped and the Relocation cemetery is added at the bottom and Lincoln is positioned on its left (west) side. I notified Will Babb of his error and gave him more than 30 days to confirm and fix the problem. He ignored my notice so I added the memorials to the correct cemetery.

Mattie Pearl Myers Moore (Srader)
Mattie married 1st Timothy Moore between 1900 and 1905. After his death, she married Wm. Dalton 'Bill' Srader, b. March 7, 1891, d. Jan. 23, 1980. I believe he is buried in Petersburg. She had 5 children with Bill and I have added those to her memorial. Was unable to add Bill as a second spouse since I do not have his memorial information. Any help from you will be appreciated.
Mattie was the mother of my mother-in-law.
