Bio and Links
Bio Photo just a History junkie, I have always been interested in the vast collection of history in every cemetery I passed through. Now that I have the time I just decided to try to get pictures of every stone I found in every cemetery I could get to. I have a friend who took photos a few years ago for Olahoma Cemeteries. I have noticed that many of the stones that she took photos of were 80 to 90 years old were still in fair shape (readable) but now the stones seem to have deteriorated to the point that they are not readable. I asked a few people what has happened in the last ten years that is causing these stones to decay much more than they did the eighty or more years before? A couple of people have said the reason is "acid rain" makes sense I guess so if that's the case we better get this history recorded. I am not a collector of memorials I just feel it is up to the living to remember the dead and help link the families so others can find there ancestors. The photos I take are posted to be shared I don't care about copyright as long as the purpose is to share with the family members. If there are family members who wish to maintain memorials that I have posted I will be glad to transfer to them as long as it's not from my family. Again I'm not in competition to see how many memorials I can make, it is just an O.C.D. thing (I'm crazy)! If I can help anyone find a long lost loved one it makes my day, I live in Adair County, OK. and will try to help find any grave within 100 miles of my home, good Lord willing and the creeks don't rise!

I don't know where she was buried, sorry. I was wondering if the funeral home would divulge that info. Maybe I'll call and ask.

Jones Memorial
Thank you so much for taking this photo for me. I was hoping it would have been my Great grandmother and not an infant. I still am looking for a Mary Ann Jones in Oklahoma near Kay county who passed away. Thank you again.

Thank you. I appreciate all you have done on Find-a-grave, I would not enjoy geneology near as much without the history that graves provide. One more favor: please cancel your pending relationship edit on George Jr. (And You were right thinking dad should have been buried near his parents and son, that caused quite a stir in the family!)

I too made a memorial for George Snyder.
I believe you have him in the wrong cemetery. Are you related?- I am sort-of related (daughter-in-law's grandfather). if you are closer related, i'll take my memorial down.
Thanks, Karen

Thank You Mr. Burnett for all the unselfish work you do and I commend you Sir, A lot of so called researchers could learn from you, it's not to see how many grave sites you can hoard it's how many you can share., I just wish I were younger and had my old motorcycle so I could go with you., once again Thank You Keep up the good work. Best Regards Dave.
