Bio and Links
Bio Photo I started doing FAG because I enjoy going to cemeteries. I especially like the older stones because they tell so much about the people by what family members put on their stones. My sister and I have been walking and photographing the Burkburnett Cemetery to correct the many mistakes that are out there. There is no greater loss than to lose records and not be able to know who is buried in a cemetery. This cemetery is very dear to me because a great many people buried in it are relatives of mine.

I am happy to help in any way that I can. I do travel quite a bit for FAG so if there's something you need, please ask. If it's within reason, I'm sure I would be glad to do it.

I am NOT a "numbers" person so when I create a memorial I like to make sure I know as much information as possible. If you are one of the many who are playing the numbers game, please do not get upset when you are bombarded with SACs. YOU created the page so accept the responsiblity of updating the memorial.

TRANSFERS: I'm happy to make transfers but PLEASE make sure you include the memorial number or the cemetery they are buried in. I visit over 50 different cemeteries so it makes things easier for me. Make sure you follow the FAG guidelines for transfers. Also, please include YOUR member number with the requests.

William S Smart and William S Smart Jr
He Paula,

There were a LOT of Smarts in Oklahoma in the 1930s.

I couldn't find conclusive evidence, but I think the undated headstone "William S Smart Jr" is for the son of the dated headstone for "William S Smart."

Beatrice Littles
Hi Paula,
I think you are right. I changed it to Beatrice and changed the dates to match the headstone. I found a Leatrice Littles born in 1922, but she died in 1983 in Vinita, so that couldn't be her. I found a Beatrice Littles born in 1925 living in Anadarko in 1940. I think that must be her.

Emily Lamkin Wickware and Katie Lee Sims
Hi Paula,

I did a quick search on and found out that Katie is Emily's mother. Emily's father was Sam Butler, so her maiden name was Butler. I am not sure if Lamkin was her middle name or another married name, so I changed it to a middle name. According to the SSDI, Katie's surname was Sims at the time of her death, so I changed the memorial to reflect that and linked them as mother and daughter.
Thanks for pointing this out.

your bio
I wanted to tell you I read your bio and your the only one I've found in all these yrs. who truly is recording a cemetery the right way, to make the corrections and get it right, not to do numbers. I'm truly into genealogy in finding mine, my hubby and my x's histories for our children together. So some yrs. back Find A Grave became a God send to me. I do it in order to find family members and link them together but if it were not for people going into cemeteries and recording them like you then I couldn't do mine so God Bless you, I do appreciate your hard work, Kay.

Charles Christopher Jones Bowman Cemetery
Paula, I saw your listing for this boy at Bowman Cemetery. He was a friend of the family and his birth and death dates should be

Birth: Aug. 27, 1983
Death: Jun. 2, 2004

You have him listed as

Birth: Aug. 27, 1883
Death: Jun. 2, 1904

Could you change this please? Thanks! Julie
