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.

Newlands Transferred
I just transferred Nannie, D.C. and Bruce from Hopewell. These were some of the first memorials I added upon joining findagrave, so the pictures I took aren't that great lol. I will try to get out there and take better ones. For Bruce's though, it had some kind of tree or bush hiding the headstone, so hopefully it's trimmed back to make it more visible.

Thank you so much. I will wait and see what you find. Most of the information I have on this family has been given by relatives, but who knows.

RE: Maggie Hicks 42938113
Hi, Virginia,
It is pesty old me again. I just noticed that there are double memorials for Maggie Hicks. I listed her in Henderson Cemetery 112503995. You have her listed in Eaton Cemetery. I can't track where my information came from, but most of the family seems to be in Henderson. Is there some way to verify which cemetery is correct. I know that you visit cemeteries for your information and mine normally comes by text, so yours is likely more viable. I am more that willing to delete mine, but I will want to make sure if I have any other information is not on the one at Eaton. So, if you can figure it out please let me know and I will do whatever needs to be done.

Thanks for your time, once again.

Kathy Riley
