Bio and Links
Bio Photo Born 1946, Chandler OK; US Army, Vietnam, 1968-69; Ph.D. University of Kansas, 1976; current residence: Tokyo, Japan.

Author of two books of family history: "North of Deep Fork: An Oklahoma Farm Family in Hard Times," which deals with Lincoln County; and "The Fate of Bones: Adventures in Family History," which follows the Pound/Pounds family from Virginia in the mid-1600s to Oklahoma at the start of WWII. Available from Amazon.

I have just published a group of non-fiction stories about early-day killings in Lincoln Co. Oklahoma called "The Lonesome Death of Billie Grayson." It has just appeared (April 2016) and is available on or from links on the website below.

I run a Lincoln County Oklahoma website at The Table of Contents for the new book is posted there. And I've made a new website for McCorkle Cemetery in Lincoln Co. because the FAG contributor who controls most of the sites there suffers from terminal inertia:

Right now, I am working on a book about the vanished village of Clematis, south of Davenport in Lincoln Co. It's not by chance that its rise and fall coincides with that of the Oklahoma Socialist Party.

RE: Hall vs. Hall-Robinson Cem.
I guess that will work. I know there are many many duplicates on Find A Grave. I was going to try and photograph what is called the Hall Cemetery in Trent but there is no road to it and I was not sure how to get to it as it is fenced in. I could see enough of it to see there were not very many graves and I am wondering if there are not 2 different cemeteries. It would have helped if Bill Rice would have photographed the cemetery as a whole when he did the tombstones.

RE: Hall vs. Hall-Robinson Cem.
Wayne,I do not have any memorials set up in Hall Cemetery nor did set it up. Wondering why Bill Rice didn't take a photo of the cemetery as the one that Kendell took only shows 5 graves at the most.

I do know that two of your memorials are duplicates to two that are at the Hall Cemtery.

RE: G.H.G. Pound # 29776007
Sorry, I do not have any other photographs other than what I have already added to memorials for my Pound family connection. A copy of this photograph was given to me from a now deceased Aunt many years ago. Are you related to G.H.G. Pound?

RE: Blyford Ray Dodd
I wouldn't be bothered at all by trying to do this for you. I'm a country girl who has no problem traipsing through the woods :) and I'll take my husband along just to be safe. I'll do my best to check it out for you this weekend weather permitting, we're in a bit of a rainy period right now. I'll be sure to email you with my findings. Best Wishes~Maranda

RE: Blyford Ray Dodd
Hello Wayne,

I'm seeing a request for photo for Blyford Ray Dodd but there is a picture of the headstone already adding. Was there something else you were needing? I may be able to make it to Carney Cemetery this weekend if so. The request mentioned Dudley Cemetery so I'm really not sure what you are needing but would be glad to help if I can.

Best wishes! Maranda

RE: Matthew Fooks # 131189829
Hi Wayne. Mary Mariah Dailey was my great-grandfather Samuel Dailey's sister. I'm fascinated by her story and by Matthew Fooks. My side of the family has very little information on them, aside from hearing my grandpa mention once about his aunt Mary being killed. I'm excited to hear about your book; I'll be ordering a copy. :)

Covington Hall Metairie
We have walked this large cemtery several times and Have not located your family Memeber. We would love to find him for you. If there is anyway for you to call the cemtery and ask which section Covington is in that would be very helpful. Thanks and if you can't call we will keep searching.

RE: Hannah Ford
Yes, it is Shepard/Sheppard. Her parents, according to several trees on Ancestry, were Thomas Sheppard and Betsy Pope, both born around 1780. She and many other Ford and Sheppard ancestors are buried at Zion Church in Rockingham, NC. Are you also a descendant of Hanna and Jacob. I have a copy of the only known photograph of Hannah. It is old and faded, but if you will email me, I will send it to you. My email is Thanks for the inquiry.---Linda
