Bio and Links
Hi, I AM 62 RETIRED,AND AN AVID GENEALOGIST. FAMILY HISTORY IS VERY IMPORTANT TO ME,AND IF BY TAKING PICTURES,I CAN IN SOME WAY SAVE A LITTLE PART OF PEOPLE'S HISTORY,THEN I FEEL LIKE I'VE ACCOMPLISHED SOMETHING. I LIVE IN ODESSA,TEXAS,
AND WILL GLADLY CHECK OUT CEMETERIES WITHIN A 200 MILE RADIUS, AND FARTHER IF I CAN. IF I HAVE MADE A MISTAKE OR IF I LIST SOMEONE THAT YOU WANT TRANSFERRED ,LET ME KNOW.
FEEL FREE TO USE MY PHOTO'S;JUST PLEASE GIVE ME CREDIT FOR TAKING THEM OR OWNING THEM.-- I have the only photo of one of my great grandmother's on here. Someone added it to their family tree on Ancestry.com with no mention of where they got it,or what family link it came from. Now it's being added from one tree to another,without anyone being aware of our link into that family.I don't think that is right.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
If anyone comes across "ANY" family of theirs I've listed and you would like to manage their memorial's,just let me know.I don't do this to build up numbers,but to try and save as much family history on these stones as I can.It doesn't matter to me how close or how far apart the family link may be.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I read a tip the other day from contributor" Lady In Black" ,that I intend to start following. Since I add a lot of photos this would indeed make it easier to keep track of ones I need to look for again.

{ When adding a tombstone photo if it is one of the funeral home markers enter it as 'other' which will make it possible to know that person still needs a 'tombstone' photo added.)
-----------------
Don't want to ruffle any feathers,but I would like to ask that when you are sending me death locations,if you are only going by the SSDI, please do futher research before doing so. A lot of people are taking what the SSDI has listed as proof positive that what it has is the place they died.That's not always so.If you click on the SSDI link it states that the location listed is the last place of residence .I've had people send me death location on the new edit tab,I'll add it,then have someone else get upset that I'm listing incorrect info.

D. C. AND INFANT BOOKER
Thank you so very sweetly, LaDonna for these transfers. I finally discovered D. C. Is a Jr, sorted it all out and he is Daniel Clayton. His father only went by Clayton and he went by D. C. only, so it was tricky. I've now discovered he had a first wife and baby girl whom his second wife helped him raise with two more girls and a son. The first wife died leaving no trace . . . So far! So the journey continues. Thank you for some of the pieces. Your work is absolutely a priceless and generous piece of our history. Kindest Regards, Nancy

Posting of Obits
Thank you for sending me obits for a couple of my memorials. I did add a portion of them. I used to post obits listing the source where they came from, but someone reported me to administration. I then tried to modify the obits so that they didn't look like they were plagiarized, yet I still received a notification from ancestry.com, so I decided not to add obits anymore to my memorials. So sad some on here act like police for Find A Grave. Anyways, any info. you do send, I'll try to find a way to add it. Thanks!

RE: Ernest Bolles
Mr. Bolles is not a part of my family. I have two books that list information on WWII Veterans from OK. I am trying to locate them and create a memorial or add to ones that does not have their military history. All Veterans should be honored and this is my way of doing so.
