Bio and Links
Bio Photo Phil is a retired systems analyst and a Vietnam veteran serving 4 years with the US Navy and 2 years with the Air National Guard.

Donna is a retired RN with 44 years in the medical field. First as a nurse's aide, then EMT and finally an RN for the last 35 years.

We live in Oklahoma City and have 3 daughters, 6 grandsons and 1 granddaughter.

We strive to enter information correctly but inadvertently mistakes. We appreciate your input in order to provide the most accurate information possible.

Rather than concentrate on adding memorials we have been going back over our previous entries and linking family members when possible.

We also check online obits to add to existing memorials as this information will most likely be useful in years to come.

** We are more than happy to make corrections and add relationship links but due to growing misunderstanding of what Find A Grave is about by those new to the site we are curtailing (not stopping) the transfer of memorials.
The time that members have put into their efforts working together and sharing information is not up for grabs based on same-name surname or lineage. We will not do any of these transfers.

You must use the edit feature on each memorial and mention your relationship in your request to be considered for transfer.

Death Date
Are you certain of the death date of Jackson Strickland? His wife's death certificate shows her date of death as 31 Oct 1930 and that she's widowed. Thanks so much.

Hi Phil and Donna:

I saw the notes on possible duplicate entries. Would like to understand more as when I input the names, only one comes up for each.

RE: Memorial # 14245221
Finally found family I needed. We grew up thinking we were related to Ulysses S Grant. We thought president, but turned out our great grandmother's brother had this name but not president! Thanks

RE John Q. Adams
He joined the Dallas Police Department 9/26/60 and his badge number was 1704. He retired 5/5/81.

Born 8/5/34. Died 12/30/87. His FindAGrave memorial is #41016138. The photo of his headstone features an engraved DPD badge ... very impressive!

Navarro County TX has a very active genealogy library and they offer a lot of online data. You may find info about your cousin there.

My contact at DPD will attempt to get of scan of Adams' photo from personnel archives if it is available. I'll let you know.

Chris Walker
Thank you so much for the transfer of the Chris Walker memorial. Up until several years ago I knew only of a few Texas Walker's of my immediate family and now I'm beginning to discover other members of this family in both Texas and Oklahoma. It was especially exciting to find that both sons of Christopher C. Walker Sr (Memorial# 32930147) were police officers since I am a retired officer myself.

I still have several friends who are Dallas police officers and one is an avid history buff ... I will contact him about your John Adams query and we'll see what comes of it.

Again, thanks so much..... Johnny

Nova P (Abernathy) Hankins #33496874
I have corrected her memorial "name" in Restlawn Memorial Park. However, as you said, she has a tombstone in the Eldorado Cemetery as well. Guess we will have to wait and see which husband she is buried next to. Thanks for calling my attention to the name. I'm trying to correct all of them that I posted as I run onto them.
