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.

Recently I have written about early-day killings in Lincoln Co. Oklahoma. I have a group of seven stories which will be published late this summer (2015).

I run a Lincoln County Oklahoma website at The Table of Contents for the new book is posted there. And I've just started 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: Location of Dudley Cemetery
Thank you for your reply. I have visited the County Seat of Lincoln County Assessors office to see if they had any records of the Mukes family which they did not. I will make another visit to check on the Green Cemetery. The GPS location of Dudley from Google Earth: Lat 35.811455' Lon -97.066421'

RE: James Toone # 32817239
Hi Wayne,

Just sent you an email regarding the Charles Lewis fella.

In answer to your question, NO, I never received any replay from the submitter of that memorial. Each & every person that I've contacted about that info has consistently failed to have any documented evidence to back it up. Most of them have just copied over from other databases, which I don't consider as research.

Many years ago I did speak with a Mike Toon who had posted this same info, and he also had no documentation, just that it was what was told to him.

Not having been there at the time, I can only state what I find in prime source records. That our Toone family likely came from England, that is fairly obvious to me, given the life of James Toone, the immigrant Virginia Planter.

Location of Dudley Cemetery
I have a relative interred in the Dudley Cemetery Lincoln County, Oklahoma. You have listing #46954396 and from Milliebelle #29954606

Do you know the exact location of this cemetery? I am sure that no African Americans were allowed to be buried in the Greens Cemetery Carney, OK unless these are both the same.

Someone has established a duplicate memorial for this person in Gittings Mound Cemetery # 64093575, where I believe he may be actually buried. I thought you would want to check.

RE: Deming stone
I'm sorry, but I can't figure out why some of my photos rotate and some don't. I've tried redoing them--doesn't matter. It's come down to leaving them rotated, or simply deleting them. If I figure it out, I'll come back and fix it.
I'm from Duncan.

Melville's buried in Pittsfield Cemetery
The cemetery office confirmed that Henry (only) is buried at 18 Hope Mound. I will check the cemetery office to see if they have any other Melville's buried at Pittsfield Cemetery.

Hello Wayne,
Thank you for the link to Julien's first wife. I connected the two of them and asked the owners of his childrens'memorials to link them up as well.
Best regards,

RE: Melville's in Pittsfield Cemetery
The next time I visit Pittsfield Cemetery, I will inquire about Melville's buried there and let you know.

Morewood's in Pittsfield Cemetery
Wayne, I called the local Herman Melville's Arrowhead Museum (413-442-1793) and they told me he is buried in the Bronx but didn't know which cemetery. You might be able to find him on Find A Grave. If you give them a call, they can explain the distant connection to Morewoods. He started explaining it to me, but I got confused.
The reference to 21 Terrace Grove: Terrace Grove is the section of Pittsfield Cemetery, and 21 is the lot number.
