Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am 43 and a mother of 5. I work full time as an BSN RN. Geneaology has been a hobby of mine since 1996. I have researched my former spouse's family (Broyles) and my current spouse's (Williams) family.

I have helped expand my maternal side (Riesbeck/Meier) that my aunt started over 30 years ago by hand and my father and I are reseraching his parent's families currently (Sellers/Abbott).

Families I am currently searching:

Arkansas: ANGELETTI, BROYLES/BROILES, CREEKMORE, NEWMAN, WOODARD (Germany/Italy)

Ohio: MEIER/MEYER, MILLER, NELSON/NELLESON, RIESBECK/RISBECK/REASBECK, SCHANTZ, STABLER/ABLER, VERFERS/VERFER (Germany)

Oklahoma: ANDERSON, BERRY, BROWN, CAMP, ETHRIDGE/ETHERIDGE, McCURTAIN, TABOR, WATSON, WILLIAMS (England/Scotland/Choctaw/Cherokee)

Pennsylvania: ABBOTT, FLUCK, HECK, IMLER/EMLER, KNISLEY/KNISELEY, LONG, SELLERS/SILLERS, TROUTMAN, WHARTON/WARTON, WHITSEL/WETZEL/WITSEL, ZIMMERMAN (Germany)

I would be glad to send headstone pictures from any location in these counties:

Arkansas:
Crawford, Sebastian, Franklin, & Washington

Oklahoma:
LeFlore & Sequoyah

I have extensive photos of these three cemeteries on file:
Piney(Concord)- Mulberry, Arkansas -Broyles family

Newberry Chapel- Alma, Arkansas - Broyles & Creekmore families

Skullyville (Choctaw cemetery)- Spiro, Oklahoma

I have easy access to Hontubby & Loving (Oklahoma) cemeteries.

I also own a rare library copy of "A History in Headstones" from the late 1960s and early 1970s for Crawford County Arkansas. Many of these cemeteries no longer exist due to two recent water reservoir projects, Lee Creek and Lake Fort Smith expansions in the past 15 years but I can find headstone information in this book. It is a treasure for it gives directions/history of the cemeteries in most cases.

William Rube Williams
I would like to thank you for posting the picture of my Grandfather, William Rube Williams headstone, as well as the other pictures. I would just like to point out, you have two errors in your information. His father was not James William Williams, 1869-1940. It was William B. Williams, 1868-1930. He too is buried at Pleasant Grove cemetery, with just the initials, W. B. Williams on his headstone. His wife (W.B.'s) was Emma Luvenia Allen. The other error was William Rube Williams daughter you have as Alender Jean, she was Elender Jean, my Aunt. Thank you again for your contribution.

RE: Rebecka J. Heck
This is one of those lost cemteries that doesn't show up on the maps. I was pretty lucky to find it. I'm glad I could help. Bill

William Nelson "Billy" Williams
William Nelson "Billy" Williams was also my 3rd great-grandfather. I left a note on his memorial to thank Opal Littlejohn, my second cousin, twice removed, who began the Find A Grave memorial for her great- grandfather when she was a serious genealogist in Houston and Anderson Counties, Texas in the 1980s and 1990s. She is 95 now and lives in a retirement center in Arlington, Texas. I enjoy visiting with her several times a month about our common ancestors. Are you a genealogist? Do you use ancestry.com?

William Nelson "Billy" Williams
Hello,

William N. Williams (who is my great-great-great-great grandfather) does not have a marker for his grave. I have photographed the entire Antrim cemetery and have walked by each grave numerous times. Also, two weeks ago I talked to someone who is probably the authority on anything involving Antrim and he confirmed that there is not a marker.

You posted a photo for Caroline #31425155 in the Fairview Cemetery. I am looking for her daughter Caroline's headstone that died at birth 1849. Do you have something near the mom's grave that reflects an infant or her daughter Caroline?
