Bio Photo From the Arkansas Delta

I've been an active genealogist for 20+ years. I'm currently researching the surnames Lunsford, Linville, Norris, Ferguson, Meador, Cole, Williams, Tully, Byrn, Greenhaw, Yates, and Morelock.

I'm an avid cemetery transcriptionist simply because I believe everyone deserves to be remembered.

I don't post graves simply for the number of memorials I can stack up. I strive for accuracy, and in particular, finding unmarked graves. If someone is related to any of these memorials, just let me know. I will gladly transfer your family members.

"Show me your cemeteries, and I will tell you what kind of people you have." --- Benjamin Franklin, 1706-1790

You left me a correction to delete her memorial in Arkansas. I don't manage that one. I manage the one in MO.

RE: Hezekiah Miller
Hezekiah (H.C.) Miller is my grandfather and he's in an unmarked grave at Vincent Cemetery. His wife (my grandmother) was Maud Miller and she's buried at Crittenden Memorial.

Paige M. Miller was my father and Pauline Cook Miller was my mother. Both are buried at Crittenden.

RE: W.J. Cole Memorial
Thank you for adding the Memorial and all the work that you do. If it wasn't for people like you taking time to search and add memorials so much history would be lost. William J. Cole was my Great Great Grandfather.

RE: Wilma Fay Robbins
Aunt Fay's maiden name was Robbins. She was married twice, but neither one was a Crook. Her sister, Ruth Elena Robbins did marry William Calvin Crook however. William Calvin was the son of William Forrest Crook and Sally. These Robbins' are a hard group to research. I have info on a couple more generations back. Let me know if you need anything.

Thank you for letting me know there are no cemeteries in Trumann, AR...Possibly it's a city cemetery in another town near by...I changed Guy's memorial to unknown cemetery.

RE: Melinda Arbuckle
Oh Dear Lord. Bless your heart. Of course, no rush whatsoever! You deal with putting your life back together. I will keep you and your family in my prayers. I can always order the death certificate online.
You and I have corresponded many times about various family members and you have always been most helpful and I appreciate all of your efforts. I am in Oklahoma. I used to get back to Arkansas at least once a year but, since most of my immediate family has passed, I don't get back as often which always included research.
Take care and I wish you the best.
Thanks, Deborah Dooley Ferguson
