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!

Thank you for taking the time to add a memorial page for Ashley, however it is a duplicate. I created a page for her the day she passed on. Thank you again.

RE: Hatley family
Thank You

I had the wonderful experience of talking with

Jess E Adair before he died in February 2014. I

have a degree in history. I published my first

book in October 2014. Right now I am considering

writing about the connection of Indian Slaves. I

would like to put to rest also the myth about the

big stone above-ground vault in the middle of

the Oak Grove cemetery. I am interested as well

in the story of Private George Washington Adair.

My grandma is Alma M. Hatley.
