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.

Hi Rita

Wayne is a distant cousin of my husband so I prefer to keep the memorial for the time being. If you find anything about where he might be buried I would appreciate knowing so I can put him in the proper place. Thank you.

where is Floyd Kysar (d. 1923) buried?
Hello -
I am a distant relative of Floyd KYSAR (d. 1923). I noticed that on Findagrave that there was no info. as to where he is buried. There was a photo of the cemetery that you took/submitted - had "Wayno_a Cemetery" on the sign. Where is he buried (city/state/name of cemetery) & any other info on him?
contact me at-
