Bio and Links
My wife and I have been doing genealogy research on both of our families since we retired in 1990.
My lines include (McKay, Cobb, Long, Matney, George, Benefield, Latch). All of my family lines were in the U.S. as far back as I can trace (early 1700's). My sirname migrated from VA to OK via TN, GA, AL, and AR. On my mothers side they migrated from OH to OK via IL and MO.

My wife's lines include:(Skaggs, Gilreath). Her family migrated from KY, SC, and GA to OK. We are willing to share any information we have.

We also take cemetery photos of our family stones as well as for tombstones for cemeteries in our area.

Photos taken by you - various Waller Cemeteries
Dear Mr. McKay:
I have received numerous requests in the past month asking that I re-take photos of headstones for memorials originally created by you and/or photographed by you. Each request is punctuated with the frustration that, in order to get a good exposure and detail on the headstone, you have "chalked" the gravestone. I'm merely passing this information on to you that someone, in this case me, is having to go back and re-do your work. Geologically speaking, according to several of my engineering and contractor friends [not to mention genealogy groups and forums], "chalking" a porous headstone is about the worst thing one can do. You're probably aware that many of the old stones here in Texas are composed of limestone - a soft, porous material that, sadly, doesn't stand up well to the ravages of weather and time. I'm merely passing on the complaints of at least 25 folks who've asked me to re-take your pictures and sharing info on the "chalking" issue. No bashing intended in this message. I truly appreciate all you do for FindaGrave.

You placed a picture of the tombstone for a "Crosby" to Karen Bonelli's memorial. Try to correct this mistake.

Mary Elizabeth Stokely Sorsby 15473720
continued...Martha Stokely died about 1881 in Hempstead, Texas. John Blount Stokely second married Sarah Maranda Brunner 7 June 1883 in Falls County Texas. He was married to his second wife, Sarah Maranda, at the time of his death on 12 Jan 1926.

Question is... How could he have been married to a Virginia Ann Vaughan considering the aforementioned facts? Will you please send me your source of information as family and public records only give two wives.
Thank you

On this memorial her mother is named as Virginia Ann Vaughan. Framily decords show that her father, John Blount "Jack" Stokely was married twice, first to Mrs. Martha E. Hayes in Washington County, Alabama on 6 May 1858. She died in Hempstead, Texas

Hello, I am researching the Roberts Family with Green Roberts, father of Elbert Roberts, being my 3rd great grandfather. I notice Elberts memorial states Green is buried in Falls County but I have never found evidence where he died and is buried. Do you have information that confirms where Green is buried? Elbert Roberts Memorial is Find A Grave Memorial# 51681290. Thank you so very much.

Are you related to this person? I did not see Trett/Tritt in your list of surnames that you are researching.
