Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born in Ardmore, Carter Co, OK, where my husband jokingly says that I thought Noah's Ark had landed.

For thirty plus years I have been involved in genealogy. When my mother died, she left some notes about a few ancestors she had uncovered and hoped I would continue her research. That was the hook-in-the-jaw that changed my life. I only regret that I have missed out on so many years that I could have used. Alas, all those family stories that went in one ear and out the other, and all those family members who took so much information to the grave with them.

I am, however, thankful for the tools that are now available and for FindAGrave, a platform that I have spent many hours gaining from and contributing to.

If I have created a memorial for a member your family, who isn't related to me, and YOU CAN ADD INFORMATION TO THEIR BIO (not just family links), I will be glad to transfer it to you. However, many have received a transfer/transfers & have never added anything. This isn't fair to kin who may come along later who can do so.

An exception to the above are my Bell, Dodson, & Love ancestors and kin, most of whom have numerous descendants. Much of the information contained in their memorials is the result of many years of tedious research, and as new information comes to light, I would like to be able to make those changes. For these memorials please follow FindAGrave guidelines for transfers.

Instructions for ALL REQUESTS for corrections, additional information, or transfers:

1. Go to the memorial page, which has an "Edit" tab located on the upper right side of the memorial.
2. Click on the "Edit" tab, then click on the Suggest a correction or provide additional information link, which opens a message page.
3. Type in your message.

Making a request this way insures that no mistakes are made, because it takes me to the exact memorial.

Thanks for your understanding.

duplicate memorial
Hi Virginia,
It has been brought to my attention that I have created a duplicate memorial (82376631) for Lettie Belle (Homan) Speaker Otten, which you had already created (48839141). Evidently, I didn't search well enough before I created it. The confusion is that her name on her death certificate is the last name of her second husband (Otten), but she is buried with her first husband (Speaker). Lettie is distantly related to me, however the memorial should be rightfully yours. If I transfer my memorial to you, can you please change the parental links? Then you can delete mine. Thanks,

RE: Sarah Y Garland
lol, not really. I am off for a few days with a bum knee and Sallies stone won't be a very far walk. I have lots of time and I love doing this stuff. :-)

Hey Virginia,

My grandfather Robert Jones was the son of Serena Center and grandson of Marcus Carroll Center. I have been sent a copy of the page you wrote about who Marcus Carroll Center's parents where. I had his dna tested. I have several matches that would seem to confirm the page in your book was curious if you wanted to discuss. You can email me
