Bio and Links
Bio Photo My name is Rita June Collvins Mayfield. I was born February 20, 1942 in Jackson County, Oklahoma. I married Vernon Roy Mayfield on April 16, 1971. My primary hobbies are gardening, oil painting, genealogy and of course cemeteries. There is something comforting about strolling through the cemetery and reading the stones. I have recently moved to Cordell, Oklahoma, but have lived in Oklahoma most of my life. Once an Okie, always an Okie. I am slowly trying to get all my family memorialized here. My virtual cemeteries represent my family, unless otherwise noted. I am going to make them public once again, and hope I can leave them without the misuse that occurred previously.

If I have a memorial that is anyone in your family, and is unrelated to me or my husband, I will be glad to hand it over to you as I don't adhere to the 4 generation only guideline, just contact me. I count it a joy and a job well done if I am able to pass on your loved one to you. It is my number two reason for doing this, second only to wishing to save all the old and battered stones from being lost forever. If you find errors on any of the information on my memorials, please get in touch with me with corrections. You are welcome to use my tombstone photos on your family files and family trees, just note where you got it.

Please don't post death certificates or census reports in the picture area on my memorials. They don't belong there and are detrimental to the looks of the memorial, plus it takes up room where photos could be placed.

RE: Mary
I'll take good care of her :-). If I find others that are a bit kin within your high volume stash, I will let you know. Thanks, Rita. Have a great weekend.

RE: Mary Isabell Lowery Medford
My relationship is tenuous. She is the second wife of my 3rd great grandfather. But, I will take her off your hands, if you would like. Thank you!

Do you have any information about the photo of Pink John Armstrong (# 15566669) in uniform? He was my great-grandfather. It looks like a WWI uniform, but there are no records of him being a veteran. Was there anything written on the back of the photo or do you have any other information? Thanks!

Thomas Carpenter
Greetings Rita,
I have left an edit on your memorial for Thomas Carpenter, the son of Peter (Hairy Peter) Carpenter. If you look at the dates of the Peter Carpenter that you linked Thomas to, you will see that the dates will not work. The link that you have for his mother is correct. The Revolutionary War Peter (Hairy) Carpenter (Zimmerman) is buried at Old Beaverdam, Gaston County, NC, which was originally Lincoln County, NC.

Since you are connected to Mr Lay by family and have a great deal of information about him I am transferring his Memorial so you can properly display the information on him that you desire.
