|Bio and Links|
I've been researching my family for about 15 years, starting with my maternal grandparents. They were born in Campbell County, Tennessee and migrated by covered wagon to Oklahoma. |
As we all know, families separate, moving on to distant locations. Find A Grave enables us to link families together in these cyber cemeteries, thanks to hundreds of volunteer memorial creators and photographers.
Find A Grave statement re cleaning headstones:
GRAVESTONES SHOULD NEVER BE CLEANED WITH ANYTHING BUT WATER AND A SOFT BRUSH.
Slate gravestones from the Revolutionary era and Pre-revolutionary era are best left alone due to their delicate nature and tendency to erode.
I invite researchers of East Tennessee to the memorial for Peter Graham Fulkerson . The name P.G. Fulkerson is probably more familiar. P.G. was a farmer, lawyer, judge and district attorney general who also had an interest in history and genealogy. He created brief records, perhaps a paragraph or two, of some of the early settlers of Claiborne County. As he created for some of my ancestors, his memorial is my brief record, a paragraph or two, of The Honorable Peter Graham Fulkerson.
Take time to follow the link on his memorial to his answers to The Tennessee Civil War Veterans Questionnaires.

you are very welcome,thank you
|Kristy Rice||Jacobs (Richmond Cemetery)|
Just wanted to let you know I photographed all of the children and grandchildren in the plot. All the Jacobs that were buried there. Also your requests for the Frank T Stone, both of them. Are they related to the Jacob's? They are in the family plot with them. Just curious.

I'm sorry but I did not find a stone for Hattie when I took the photos of the cemetery. She is not listed in the Cemeteries of Miami County Kansas Volume III, which was information from 1993 when someone walked the cemetery and transcribed the stones. Oakwood is the oldest cemetery in Osawatomie and it sits, literally, on the bank of the Marais Des Cygnes River, which floods frequently. That cemetery had been underwater many times. There was devastating flood in 1952 which could have washed some of the smaller stones into the river. There are many stones in the cemetery that are completely unreadable. It's possible that hers is among them.

Can you type in the obituary under the edit/ suggest corrections tab to send me? I'd be interested in taking a look at it.

You can get a copy of his obituary from the Longview Public Library. Go to their website and you can request copies of obituaries. His is in the July 25, 1988 Longview Daily News according to their index.

Hi Janet, I have fulfilled your photo requests for the Heleens. There was one stone for both Edna and Arnold, so I uploaded to each of your requests. Have a nice day.
|Russell Wilhoit||RE: Missouri Hendrickson|

|Jan B.||RE: John, Anita and Rowena Jacobs|
Sorry, there was an issue with getting an error message when trying to post photos on Find a Grave most of the day yesterday. After I posted the first picture, there were error messages on the rest. Got them added this morning. I also added a memorial and photo for Stacy Jacobs who was buried in between Rowena and Anita.
