Bio and Links
Bio Photo I visited Find-A-Grave for years filling in blanks on my family tree. After retirement I decided to become a contributor too (2010) here in central Oklahoma. I took all the small cemeteries in Canadian County and some in Kingfisher County. Now that there are so many volunteers with cell phones, I have given up.


THANK YOU to all of you who have posted the many old obits I have sent you.

If you have sent an edit on the "suggest any other correction" and I don't comply within a day or two - please send to my email. I am not getting these requests thru the system all the time.

NOTES - To view the photograph at full resolution and clarity, click on it to see the larger view.

Please note that the new system allows you to easily post edit requests by clicking the EDIT tab on your bio page - and then clicking "process edits" at the bottom of that screen.

1. Take a photo of the entire tombstone first, then get a close-up of the name if it is hard to read on the whole view. Try to fill the frame with the stone and not the surrounding countryside, homes, cars, etc.
2. Look for your reflection or shadow in the tombstone BEFORE you take the picture! Stand to the side to prevent reflection.
3. Squat in order to get on the same level as the tombstone - don't stand and shoot down at a sharp angle.
4. If the stone is vertical, take the picture vertically - it will display on the memorial much larger than horizontally. PLEASE DO NOT put the picture up sideways!!! This is very disrespectful!! If you don't know how to turn it, ask me and I will try to help.

We are trying to preserve history so we want the very best pictures possible - it may be all that survives!

** My photos may be used for any nonprofit purpose - ONLY IF - you give credit by listing your source so others can find it. Noting the source INCLUDES the photographer's name, and the Find-a-Grave memorial number or website.**
Some of my family surnames:
KENTUCKY - Durrett, Skaggs, Pierce, Bloyd, Thompson, Cantrell, Elmore, Chaudoin
ILLINOIS - Mingee, Thornton, Gilreath, McNeese, Harris, Strader, McCrady

Cathea, I believe this is the wife of Hubert Vaught Henderson who remarried ___ Loomis after the death of her husband in 1961.

Could you please look up her obituary to support what I'm thinking. I'd like to connect her to her family. There are three children: Elizabeth, Carolyn & Charles.

Thanks so much, Doni

Cathea, could you look up Clarence's obituary. Trying to determine a connection. The death date seems off.

Thanks so much, Doni
