Bio and Links
Bio Photo My wife Terri and I no longer volunteer for Findagrave in Washington County Oklahoma. We will continue working on our family and friends. If we have entered a memorial of one of your loved ones, family or friend, let us know and we will always consider transferring to your care. Many of the volunteers in our area have lost interest in the work due to one individual. It is a shame. All of these volunteers have done a good job. None are perfect but have given of their time and effort to provide information for the many burials in this area. We are loyal supporters of Findagrave but we are all volunteers and the verbal, mental and email abuse we have all taken makes it not worth the effort.

RE: P D Owen tombstone identified
Thanks for your reply, Richard. Yes, I believe Pearl's maiden name was Decker, and she was married to Elmer Owen (spelled Owens in the newspaper accounts). Her father's name was Lawson, and one of her brothers was Noah.

I look forward to your impressions after reading the book.

Take care,

Danny

P D Owen tombstone identified
Mr. Moberly,

Thanks to a request from a reader of my book, The Unwritten Law, A True Crime of Passion, I decided to look up the name of the cemetery where Pearl Decker Owen was buried.

I remembered from my 1991 research of microfilmed newspapers that Pearl was buried in a cemetery which started with the letter "G." The reader, Anna Richter, emailed me today, asking where in Glen Dean, Ky. that Pearl was buried.

Thanks to a quick search on Google, I found Goshen Baptist Church Cemetery, and from there, your inquiry and photo about the full name of P. D. Owen.

Pearl Decker Owen was murdered on a southbound train outside Somerset, Kentucky on the night of August 10, 1928 by her lover's wife.

Thank you so much for your photo and inquiry which has allowed me, along with Ms. Richter, to obtain this important information.

RE: Mike Mueller Memorial
You're welcome, Mr. Mobley. I knew Mike briefly. He was truly a gentleman and a God loving man. I crossed paths with him in flight school in 1986-87 in Beeville, Texas. He sure was well liked and admired.

After he was listed as missing, many of us held prayer vigils and gathered to pray for his safe return and for the well being of his family.

It was such a tremendous shock after we learned what had happened to this fine man and the other pilot, CAPT Daniel Ginsberg.

Best Regards,

Jim Qualls

RE: Silas Clark and his wife
Dear Richard, Thank you so very much for the transfer of the memorials and also for the very gracious note. I did a lot of family tree research for a dear lady who passed away this week, and her husband and sons asked me if I would now do some work on the Case/Clark family. Thank you for making my job so much easier. Please never hesitate to ask if I can return the favor to you. Thanks again. Nancy

Hi Richard: Would like very much to use Sarah & Gene Archambo's headstone photo in my Ancestry.com Public Member Tree. Appreciate all the hard work done in the Bartlesville area by the Findagrave volunteers. Leone was my maternal grandfather's sister. Thanks.

Mr. Richard, I am always absolutely delighted, and sing a chorus when Family finds Family!!! It is my pleasure to have been of assistance to the family research. Actually, I get a big kick out of it! I am so glad!

I am also so very sorry that someone, somewhere in the world has hurt you, and damaged your relationship with Findagrave and all the Folks who depend upon Findagrave for family research. I so dislike "not nice" people. I, for one, appreciate anything anyone does for me and mine out there! I toddle off to Tulsa annually to visit my daughter and grandbabies, but cemetery hopping sure isn't on my agenda.

Thank you for everything you have done for Findagrave.

Take care,
Beth

Richard,
Thank you for the transfers. Your memorials have provided me with a lot of information. From your work I have been able to connect many members of my grandpa's family that are buried Hillside Mission Cemetery.
