Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born in Ardmore, Carter Co, OK, where my husband jokingly says that I thought Noah's Ark had landed.

For thirty plus years I have been involved in genealogy. When my mother died, she left some notes about a few ancestors she had uncovered and hoped I would continue her research. That was the hook-in-the-jaw that changed my life. I only regret that I have missed out on so many years that I could have used. Alas, all those family stories that went in one ear and out the other, and all those family members who took so much information to the grave with them.

I am, however, thankful for the tools that are now available and for FindAGrave, a platform that I have spent many hours gaining from and contributing to.

If I have created a memorial for a member your family, who isn't related to me, and YOU CAN ADD INFORMATION TO THEIR BIO (not just family links), I will be glad to transfer it to you. However, many have received a transfer/transfers & have never added anything. This isn't fair to kin who may come along later who can do so.

An exception to the above are my Bell, Dodson, & Love ancestors and kin, most of whom have numerous descendants. Much of the information contained in their memorials is the result of many years of tedious research, and as new information comes to light, I would like to be able to make those changes. For these memorials please follow FindAGrave guidelines for transfers.

Instructions for ALL REQUESTS for corrections, additional information, or transfers:

1. Go to the memorial page, which has an "Edit" tab located on the upper right side of the memorial.
2. Click on the "Edit" tab, then click on the Suggest a correction or provide additional information link, which opens a message page.
3. Type in your message.

Making a request this way insures that no mistakes are made, because it takes me to the exact memorial.

Thanks for your understanding.

RE: James Penn Anthony
I know it's frustrating. I've been going through Anthony Roots and Branches, but so far nothing. I will keep you posted. You have a good day as well.

RE: William & Margie Custer Memorials
I am glad you can use the obituaries on the memorials. I hope they will be useful to people doing research.

RE: James Penn Anthony
Hi Virginia,

I have a copy of the death record, and I thought that may be where you got the info. My personal opinion is that either Henry wasn't sure of the town, or that he started to give the information and someone else finished it. It also lists his father, James Anthony's birthplace as Pa, which one would think Pennsylvania, but he was born in Virginia, too. Because this is directly above the mother's name, I think whoever started to write Patsey, moved down to the next line, and because he didn't know her maiden name, didn't complete it.

This is all assumption. I will check a couple of things and let you know if I can verify this information.

Kermit Cox
Are you a member of Kermit's direct family? I personally know these people. My mother and Geraldine were friends. I would be glad to add any information and give you credit but unless you are a sibling of his I wouldn't want to transfer the memorial because Kermit and Geraldine have 2 children living here in Perry Co. Sorry

Pending changes
Hi Virginia:
I have entered many additions to the Dodson memorial pages and most have been accepted and none have been denied. I still have a number pending. Who decides to accept or deny a change? What can you do if you don't hear back on a request. Most of the info I have entered is to link children with parents.
Thanks again for your help, Rhett

RE: Arthur Selfe
You are most welcomed. I started the overview a couple of months ago.. I like the warmth that it gives to include the landscape. And all the landscapes are just lush here in CA. I'm against the photos that look like stiff plaques that represent a name and not the person who once celebrated life.

I noticed you are caring for the W. D. Robinson site from Bentley City, MO. I was wondering if you know where his wife Anna Bartunek Robinson is buried or who I might contact to find out? Anna was my Grandma's first cousin and I would really like to update her history in our family tree.
