Bio and Links
Bio Photo After spending a few years researching my family tree, I found very little information available on burials. When I found this site, I decided to help out, and list as many obits as I could, thinking it may help someone else researching their families.
I live in Baker, LA now, born and raised in Baton Rouge, and spent 3 years in Central Michigan in the late 1960's.

Going to need to contact the owner of Mildred's memorial. It appears they linked to Robert.

Shell and Ola Hughes
Rita: My name is Betty McConnell. My mother was Inez Hughes, daughter of Joseph C Hughes of Livingston, La. His brother was Shelton John Hughes, known as Shell who was married to Ola Stafford. She was born 1-9-88 and died 6-83 I believe. I have found your entry for Shell who is buried at Old Red Oak Cemetery but there is no reference to Ola's grave. I feel sure she would be buried with Shell. Their daughter Viola Hughes Farace and her husband are buried there too. Could you help me solve the dilema of finding Aunt Ola's grave? I am in Texas. You can contact me at Thank you so much for your help. I appreciate all the work you have done on this site. It's really wonderful for searching.

RE: Margaret Lemon 55270750
You are correct. I went back to the Dept of Veteran Affairs Grave Locator and found she was married to Cleve, Jr. I missed the Jr part on my first look. Thanks.

RE: Charles Craig # 3215238
(am leaving his name in the subject line)

I am making a huge attempt to get the findagrave GPS map settings corrected but to date have been unsuccessful.

a) The cemetery where we have purchased lots is wrong - by approx 2 miles

b) Another cemetery is wrong by more than 10 miles.

I am willing to drive to those cemeteries, establish the correct GPS settings and report them, IF I can find a means and/or the findagrave person to make those changes.

Are you aware - do you have any name/email - of anyone at findagrave who can assist me?

If not, I'm not venturing out. Not at the price of gas these days.

Thank you
