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 of your family, who isn't related to me, and you can add a biographical sketch 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.

This is a book written by my dad's aunt Shelby. This was his mother's, Helen, younger sister. There are pictures of him, Jackie, in it and their family story.

Please email me if you would like more information. Thank you....

Hi,I believe this is my Dad. I was fairly young when he passed and just wanted to say thank you for the picture.

You are welcome to contact me if you would like further information about him.

RE: Theadosia Williams
I understand your concerns, I feel bad when I see a Memorial with just the date of birth and death. I have sent obituaries and information to people and they never add them. I try to add as much as I can, if you have seen some of Memorials you will see. I have information on a lot of my Memorial's that I have not had time to add but I will. Thank you Marsha
