Bio and Links
Bio Photo I transfer all memorials of people who are not related to me to other contributors who will take care of them until family requests them. The memorials I have kept are mostly my grandparents or those of my husband and I will not be transferring those.

DO NOT take my photos without giving me proper credit. You may use my photos on any website or in your own personal records as long as a photo credit is given back to me.


My current project is the Ft. Supply Insane Asylum Cemetery. The Insane Asylum was opened in 1908. There's a long history of mistreatment and abuse of the inmates up until the 60s or so. Inmates were buried with simple concrete markers, the majority of which have been damaged. I have been working with the graves list and have spent an enormous amount of time piecing together stone fragments and matching people to a stone and a lot number. Everyone deserves to be known by someone and many of these people were forgotten long ago.

Thanks so much for your help! This was my GGG grandfather and I wondered if he had a headstone. Now I know! :) Do you know if a wife or other family was nearby? Thanks again!!

Hixon photo request
In the lot where the Hixon's are buried there is only one marker which is illegible. I took a picture if you would like it.

Mary and J Hixon
Mary Hixon is not in the cemetery book. Did she go by another name? Also didnt see a female with that death year. Could she have remarried before death or been buried under a maiden name? I will check records for Upper Alton Cemetery as well.

J Hixon: no stone listed but will verify

Looking at the cemetery books I have acquired some information you may want. Even though it says there is no stone I will go look anyway. They do not update the records if a grave has been marked later on by relatives. I will also check on other family members:)
