Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born in Ardmore, Carter Co, OK, where my husband jokingly says that I thought Noah's Ark had landed.

For thirty plus years I have been involved in genealogy. When my mother died, she left some notes about a few ancestors she had uncovered and hoped I would continue her research. That was the hook-in-the-jaw that changed my life. I only regret that I have missed out on so many years that I could have used. Alas, all those family stories that went in one ear and out the other, and all those family members who took so much information to the grave with them.

I am, however, thankful for the tools that are now available and for FindAGrave, a platform that I have spent many hours gaining from and contributing to.

If I have created a memorial for a member your family, who isn't related to me, and YOU CAN ADD INFORMATION TO THEIR BIO (not just family links), I will be glad to transfer it to you. However, many have received a transfer/transfers & have never added anything. This isn't fair to kin who may come along later who can do so.

An exception to the above are my Bell, Dodson, & Love ancestors and kin, most of whom have numerous descendants. Much of the information contained in their memorials is the result of many years of tedious research, and as new information comes to light, I would like to be able to make those changes. For these memorials please follow FindAGrave guidelines for transfers.

Instructions for ALL REQUESTS for corrections, additional information, or transfers:

1. Go to the memorial page, which has an "Edit" tab located on the upper right side of the memorial.
2. Click on the "Edit" tab, then click on the Suggest a correction or provide additional information link, which opens a message page.
3. Type in your message.

Making a request this way insures that no mistakes are made, because it takes me to the exact memorial.

Thanks for your understanding.

John Noble and Lena Hardy memorial
Thank you so much for transfering these memorials to me. I grew up across the street for this lovely couple. I was their "step granddaughter" as they had none of their own. They owned and operated the local telephone company.
Lots of happy memories of this couple.

I have transfered this memorial to you. I am always happy when someone requests a transfer in order to link or add additional information. There was much more to a person's life than just the name and dates.
I have a question for you. Would you please contact me directly at the e mail address listed on my bio. I was also born in Carter County, Oklahoma.

Re: Walter Andruff
Hi Virginia, I sent you an edit on him to change his last name. I am thinking they got his name wrong. His father Rufus is buried next to him and it's spelled Anduff.
