Bio and Links
Bio Photo Born 1946, Chandler OK; US Army, Vietnam, 1968-69; Ph.D. University of Kansas, 1976; current residence: Tokyo, Japan.

Author of two books of family history: "North of Deep Fork: An Oklahoma Farm Family in Hard Times," which deals with Lincoln County; and "The Fate of Bones: Adventures in Family History," which follows the Pound/Pounds family from Virginia in the mid-1600s to Oklahoma at the start of WWII. Available from Amazon.

I have just published a group of non-fiction stories about early-day killings in Lincoln Co. Oklahoma called "The Lonesome Death of Billie Grayson." It has just appeared (April 2016) and is available on or from links on the website below.

I run a Lincoln County Oklahoma website at The Table of Contents for the new book is posted there. And I've made a new website for McCorkle Cemetery in Lincoln Co. because the FAG contributor who controls most of the sites there suffers from terminal inertia:

Right now, I am working on a book about the vanished village of Clematis, south of Davenport in Lincoln Co. It's not by chance that its rise and fall coincides with that of the Oklahoma Socialist Party.

RE: Clematis
You didn't mention Clematis, it's on your profile :) Yes, when my sister and I were poking around the Davenport cemeteries, we went to the Victor cemetery and knew this. We went to the historical society first to gather all info we could find on old cemeteries around here. I think we spent several weekends driving back roads of Davenport hunting things down, walking through tall weeds in fields. We also were up around Prague, Chandler, Sac and Fox, Meeker, Sparks, Wellston. She has done some of the Boley cemeteries. Every now and then, she'll come across someone that tells her somemore history or where another abandoned cemetery is, and we head it. That was several years ago though, it's time for us to go again.

Interested in what you have on this Clematis you speak of? I think I remember something about this when my sister and I were running around Davenport a few years ago.

My sister and I also spent quite a bit of time in the back roads of Davenport visiting old cemeteries and learning about the things that used to be there. We added a cemetery that is on private land between Sparks and Davenport. We also spent a day in the Sparks Cemetery taking photos and logging names.

RE: Frisbie family in Oak Park Cem.
Yes, that article is what I saw. My sister and I get together and try to get to the old cemeteries that have been forgotten, or out of the way, or on people's properties and try to get them documented and photographed. So when the article came out, we read it and were glad to see someone had restored it! We just haven't visited it.

RE: Frisbie family in Oak Park Cem.
McCorckle is the old one up by the turnpike? I haven't been to it, but am familiar and familiar with the story of people cleaning it up and trying to preserve. Class of 94.

I will get these transferred. Just let me know if there's anymore,
