Bio and Links
Bio Photo I do this because of the historical contribution and to connect the deceased with their family - living and not living. I take time to submit accurate data. If I have made mistakes, even the smallest, I ask that you notify me right away.

Pictures I've posted are only for an individual's personal use. If you wish to use them in any way, please include souce information by adding: "Photo Source: Carla James, Findagrave volunteer #47309423." Do NOT use in a "for sale" publication (or website) without my express written permission for each item.

I've been doing genealogy for more than 20 years, and I love research. In fact, I'm employed in the audit/fraud field and am a Certified Fraud Examiner.

Oklahoma is my home and has been my whole life (since 1966). I was born in Lincoln County, attended grade school in Kendrick, high school in Stroud, and college in Stillwater. Several generations of my family lived in Lincoln, Payne, Creek, & Okfuskee counties. My husband and his family lived in Payne, Pawnee, Kay, and Noble counties.

Some of my memorials are my family, and I will keep those. Most of my memorials are no relation to me. If any are your family and you would like a transfer, let me know.

Family names of research: Beck, Murray, Miller, Smith, Pendleton, Whiteley, Winkleman, Marti, Norton, Arbaugh, James, Day, McCurry, Mace, Gurney... to name a few.

RE: Pics
Thanks cousin,

As you are aware, I too have been a researcher & family historian , (but I am a lot older than you.72) for 40 years.

In the past few years, I have decided to share & I have put soo much on the & history, sharing with others, & it is nice when they do put where it came from, but usually not.

most all of the older photos of whiteleys & other lines are from my personal album handed down to me because everyone knows how long I have been working for the family on this.

John Walker Fogle
There is a long story behind this man. But his real birthdate is Feb.21,1921 not Mar.31,1921.The reason I know this is because he was my father. It took me 15 years to piece the puzzle together.

Mar.31,was his parents date that they were divorced on.

His birth given name was John Milton Fry. His mother was remarried and then he was adopted his name was changed to John Walker Fogle.

Thank you !

Dear Family Finder,

Thank you so much for transferring my cousins Lenore & Walter Reece's memorial pages into my care.

Helping total strangers to locate their deceased ancestors and relatives is especially meaningful for those of us that live so far away from our ancestral homesteads.

May God bless you and yours in all your endeavors.

With heartfelt gratitude,
Kati McSweeney
