Bio and Links
Bio Photo just a History junkie, I have always been interested in the vast collection of history in every cemetery I passed through. Now that I have the time I just decided to try to get pictures of every stone I found in every cemetery I could get to. I have a friend who took photos a few years ago for Olahoma Cemeteries. I have noticed that many of the stones that she took photos of were 80 to 90 years old were still in fair shape (readable) but now the stones seem to have deteriorated to the point that they are not readable. I asked a few people what has happened in the last ten years that is causing these stones to decay much more than they did the eighty or more years before? A couple of people have said the reason is "acid rain" makes sense I guess so if that's the case we better get this history recorded. I am not a collector of memorials I just feel it is up to the living to remember the dead and help link the families so others can find there ancestors. The photos I take are posted to be shared I don't care about copyright as long as the purpose is to share with the family members. If there are family members who wish to maintain memorials that I have posted I will be glad to transfer to them as long as it's not from my family. Again I'm not in competition to see how many memorials I can make, it is just an O.C.D. thing (I'm crazy)! If I can help anyone find a long lost loved one it makes my day, I live in Adair County, OK. and will try to help find any grave within 100 miles of my home, good Lord willing and the creeks don't rise!

Tom Vann, Jr.
Thank you for the obituary for Tom Vann, Jr. I had lost it in my email but recently found it. I've added it to his memorial.

RE: Burnetts
Hi R.

I have one picture of Imogene and will see if I can get some more from my nieces. I posted it on her page. It was taken in 1987. I will have to see if I can get one of their grand father too.

I don't know if I will have any luck with pictures of their stones. I am in AZ and the girls are in NM and NV. Their father is in Washington C area. I think their aunt and uncle may still be in Colorado. I will see what I can do.

Good Morning, I researched Ruby's father a little more and found his middle name is Jordan. I added this to the entry. Thanks for sharing and caring.
