Bio and Links
Bio Photo If there is a memorial I have added for someone you would like transferred to you, please just let me know, as long as they are not a relative or close friend of mine. I love being able to help honor those that have passed on before us! If you find a photo that you would like to have that I have posted for a loved one you are more than welcome to copy them yourselves.
I spend a lot of time walking the cemeteries and getting information and photos for the memorials, but my purpose is not to have "ownership" of them, but to make as many available for family, loved ones and genealogy researchers that I can.
I would like to especially thank Charlotte Stevens Schneider, without her help I would not be able to complete alot of the memorials I have done. She has been diligent in finding obituaries and dates for so many of the memorials we have worked on!

I am so sad to say that Charlotte passed away on February 11, 2011. She will be so missed by all that knew and loved her! Charlotte is now rejoicing in the presence of our Lord!

Charlotte Ann Stevens Schneider

Sabra Ann Rankin Lee
Hi, Donna. I'm looking for information on my 2x great grandmother, Sabra Ann Rankin Lee (b. 1819 d. 1875). She was married to Edward I. Lee (b. 1822 d. 1898). From information I have found she is buried in the Schaberg Cemetery, Crawford County, Arkansas. I was at that cemetery yesterday but did not find a marked grave for her. Most of the graves there are marked only with a stone. I would love to have information about them both.

Hello, I am a genealogist living in the Booneville area where the Oak Hill Cemetery is located. I searched for 2 hours yesterday for marker/headstone yet didn't find it. I have not given up yet. I am contacting the City and Chamber of Commerce in an attempt to find someone who might have records of those interred here. If you wish to contact me back for further discussion I am more than willing to do so. My personal email is . Don't lose hope, I am on the trail!

McBroom, Kenneth Lewis
Okay, I have a great big question to ask.

I am looking for Ivie Nora Maner Bolen McBroom.

She was married to Leo Marion Bolen who born Dec. 28, 1916 and died Sept. 14, 1969. He is buried in Park Grove Cemetery, Tulsa County, in plot, Section M Block 40, Lot 4, Space 5. ( In which I might add that there was a baby grave there also. We can out to Aunt Ivie and Uncle Leo funeral and other relatives buried in the same area of the cemetery) He is our question we understood that Kenneth McBroom (1-14-1919 ---7-15-1985) was buried next to her Aunt Ivie first Husband Leo Bolen, and there was a space left for her to be buried in.( we made a flying trip out there and did not stay very long and I don't remember going back to Cemetery after she was buried) Can you tell me if that is true? Since Leo has a marker and Kenneth has a Marker, we are trying to find one on her. A Janet Davis poster a marker of a person that was buried near her, said she was in an unmark grave. Can you go and check this out for us? Knowing Aunt Ivie the way we knew her we find it hard to believe that she doesn't have a marker. Thank you so much for this if you can do it for us. Thank you Linda

Donna, I was wondering if you had or could find an obituary on Gary F. Thompson. I knew him growing up, but didn't know he had passed. Thank you. Cherie Annex Wages

Lierly, Zachariah
We had communicated several years back. I was looking for info for what I believe to be my 4th ggrandfather, Zachariah Lierly (Find A Grave Memorial# 28776929). You said there was a book or something that you would share with me. I am wondering if that would still be possible?
Thanks so much!

Hello Searching the Past, You wrote me a note about:

When I went to 'your' page, I saw that you had a page called BAHS... WELL, I could hardly believe it.. I just HAD to KNOW that it meant Broken Arrow High School... as in the town of Broken Arrow, OK... That is where my husband and I basically raised our children (with the exception of 4 years spent in KC Ks)... I was co-founder of the BA Genealogy Society in 1977 and served as president for the first year. My husband had two sisters and a brother who lived in BA before we did and we moved there because of them in Sept 1970.. My two sons graduated 1980, daughter 1982 and the last daughter didn't finish school. I worked for 8 years at Arrow Flowers & Gifts there in BA. Would like to know more about who you are, etc. Still have friends there, although we haven't kept in touch very much. I currently live in Inola, OK. Hoping that you will answer, I am.. Eddene Hightower Thompson...

Find A Grave Memorial# 28669257
Sorry, I had sent the message before I was through.

Anyhow Find A Grave Memorial# 28669257 is my wife's grandmother. I suspect there is a birth and death date on the stone. We have:

26 Jun 1904 in Atkins, Pope, Arkansas
6 Sep 1933 in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma
(but removed back home in Muskogee)

But don't put the birth and death on this until we can get better verification. two sets of records we have has 2 different dates. I picture of the tombstone might help.

She should be buried close to her husband Lee Roy Lenon who died in Calif in 1952 or her parents, Florence E and James F. Furr. We are 90% sure her husband is buried in Calif, however.

Thanks for your help. Randy and Peg.

PS: We think there is another mis-spelling as her middle name is MAE and not MAY. thanks again Randy

Dear Donna,

I THANK YOU so much for trying to find my great-aunt's grave; AND for the flowers. What a thoughtful, generous soul you have. Thanks for letting me know who she is buried between; if I'm ever able to get there at least I will know where to visit. Deb
