Bio and Links
Bio Photo My name is Rita June Collvins Mayfield. I was born February 20, 1942 in Jackson County, Oklahoma. I married Vernon Roy Mayfield on April 16, 1971. My primary hobbies are gardening, oil painting, genealogy and of course cemeteries. There is something comforting about strolling through the cemetery and reading the stones. I have recently moved to Cordell, Oklahoma, but have lived in Oklahoma most of my life. Once an Okie, always an Okie. I am slowly trying to get all my family memorialized here. My virtual cemeteries represent my family, unless otherwise noted. I am going to make them public once again, and hope I can leave them without the misuse that occurred previously.

If I have a memorial that is anyone in your family, and is unrelated to me or my husband, I will be glad to hand it over to you as I don't adhere to the 4 generation only guideline, just contact me. I count it a joy and a job well done if I am able to pass on your loved one to you. It is my number two reason for doing this, second only to wishing to save all the old and battered stones from being lost forever. If you find errors on any of the information on my memorials, please get in touch with me with corrections. You are welcome to use my tombstone photos on your family files and family trees, just note where you got it.

Please don't post death certificates or census reports in the picture area on my memorials. They don't belong there and are detrimental to the looks of the memorial, plus it takes up room where photos could be placed.

Addison Warner Bell
Hi Rita
Have you found Addison Warner Bell parents names? I am interested in Bell genealogy. There is a Samuel Beach Bell b. 1778-1839 of a man in We had both done DNA testing in Family Tree DNA and had a match on female side.
My 4th ggm Rachel ? Newell his Elizabeth Seaman who had Bell's in her lineage.
Your Addison Warner Bell I think named a son or grandson Samuel Beach Bell?
Have you tried getting obituary on Addison?
I have another line of my mother's Dake's buried in Plover Cemetery if I remember correctly.
Sorry for such a disjointed e-mail.

RE: Cemetery edits
Thanks, Rita! I'll keep plugging away at it little by little. The East Cemetery Addition and most of the Infant areas are completed.
Cemetery edits
I just want to thank you for all the work you are doing. The memorials there really need the photos in order to correct the errors that were on the cemetery list from which they were added. I have not had the time to get down there to do them myself. I am so grateful you are doing this. Kudos to you.

God Bless,

Marian Burnett's memorial
Thanks for finding my mistake and for being so prompt. I'm working with some of the family to make other links for Marian.

Marian Burnett Memorial
I've sent a list of Marian Burnett's children to be added in the bio. section of her memorial. The oldest daughter is my sister-in-law. Marian and Horace Burnett used to live near me in Cache, Okla. until their health began to fail. Hope you'll add the info. I've sent you via the edit tab. Thanks for your attention to this memorial.
