Bio and Links
My wife and I have been doing genealogy research on both of our families since we retired in 1990.
My lines include (McKay, Cobb, Long, Matney, George, Benefield, Latch). All of my family lines were in the U.S. as far back as I can trace (early 1700's). My sirname migrated from VA to OK via TN, GA, AL, and AR. On my mothers side they migrated from OH to OK via IL and MO.

My wife's lines include:(Skaggs, Gilreath). Her family migrated from KY, SC, and GA to OK. We are willing to share any information we have.

We also take cemetery photos of our family stones as well as for tombstones for cemeteries in our area.

We are the "Find A Grave Keepers" for Waller County, TX

Is Vivian Marie Wheeler related to you? If so is it through the Long. She is my Aunt, Leroy McDaniel is her brother he to is in the same cemetery. I am working on putting my Family tree together. My grand mother's mom was a Long. If we are not from the same Long would you please consider transferring Aunt Marie to me. Thank you in advance

RE: 86470566 Update Request
Thank you, I did not know. Eventually I will be requesting Memorial Management for all so I may enter bio, obit information and select photgraphs/family pictures on my own. If unable to due so where I stand on the family tree I will be contacting the appropriate family member to do so. I sincerely appreciate persons such as yourself setting up the memorials initially but in the end I feel the family should have ownership. If I knew this site existed a few years ago I would have gone in and set up all my deceased relatives to have ownership. Thanks again and keep up the great work! Bruce

86470566 Update Request
Hi Jr!

First of all thank you for creating the memorial for my cousin Daniel B Prihoda, 86470566 and also acting so quick on another request I submitted to you today!

I am the cousin of Daniel and his parents were my uncle and aunt Fred R Prihoda and Annie E Vitek Prihoda. I am trying to tie all deceased cousins to their parents and spouses for which currently their memorial does not have listed.

Would you be so kind to update Daniel B Prihoda memorial 86470566 with the following:

Father - Fred R Prihoda - 80497054
Mother - Annie E Vitek Prihoda - 80496564
Spouse - Evelyn Manna Prihoda - 146581206

Thanks in advance and once again!

RE: Collie Mitchell, #124158017
I'm not related. I was updating Amos Mitchell's memorial and it shows his father is Collie Mitchell so I thought I would update Collie as well. I won't send any edits for Collie since we don't know for sure.

Thanks for your input.

Collie Mitchell, #124158017

I have a question about Mr. Mitchell. His death certificate says he's buried in the
Houston Cemetery also known as: Hempstead African American Cemetery.

Does your note on his memorial mean that the death certificate is wrong? I don't want to send an edit request if it's wrong.

reading old tombstones
I, for one, am glad you did it. It is important that we get the data down digitally so the information is not lost.
Would it be better if after the photos were taken, we washed it off right away?
In any case, THANK YOU. - Carolyn

KIRBY headstone photos
Thank you for the photos of Caroline Kirby and her son Henry Eldred Kirby in Old Salem Cemetery, located in Howth in Waller County, Texas. What did you use to make them so readable?
Kind regards, Carolyn Davis

RE: Benefield transfers
So the closest relative you share with my grandfather is your great great great grandfather. Please follow the Rules established by Find A Grave and transfer my grandparents and great grandparents as I have requested. Thank you.
