I am retired and live in California. I lost my dear husband several years ago and often travel around to visit other members of my family. I love genealogy and find it fascinating especially after days, sometimes months of research it brings me closer to an elusive family member. It brings me joy to find them regardless of how many times removed I am. It seems fitting that the final tribute to my bloodline should rest here and may help others find them and pay tribute to them. Often they had a hard life and fought and endured many harsh elements and now their story lives on within these hallowed borders of the World Wide Web.
Emma Syvertson There is a memorial for this woman in both Mt Olive and Mt Olivet Cemeteries. Mt. Olive is a small mostly African-American Cemetery N. of Grant OK and Mt. Olivet is a large cemetery within the Hugo OK city limits. Could you please delete the memorial that is not correct. Thank You.
Laura and Charles Dietrich Ms Newton, I was so shocked to see a picture of my beloved aunt and great-granfather as children on your site. I did not realize anyone was even aware of this close knit small group of peole left on earth. How in the world did you manage to keep this for so long? Somehow I wound up with an old picture of Sebastian Dietrich with his wife Caroline and a young man named Charles on the back of the picture. The old guy must be around 80 years old in the picture and is wearing a mason pin. I'm sure it's the original and seems to have been taken around 1900. Thanks Bobby Hopper Humble Texas 281-684-8414
