Bio and Links
Bio Photo I love helping people however I can plus this is getting me out of the house for some much needed exercise.

I am employed with the Oklahoma Forensic Center, formally known as Eastern State Hospital, in Vinita for 26 years now. I drive by the cemetery several times every day. I have always enjoyed touring cemeteries and looking at the old headstones. Once when driving through the cemetery and admiring all the Memorial Day flowers I told my 3 year old grandson that his great-grandpa had a sister there but I always had trouble finding her. He gave me such a sympathetic look and said, "Well granny, that's probably because she is way down under the ground somewhere." I thought what a brilliant conclusion for a 3 year old that has never been talked to about death.

picture of Willian Daugherty's stone
The picture of the military stone you added to Ed Daugherty belongs to his grandson, not Ed

Find A Grave Memorial# 5526258
Hi Jackie, There must have been some glitch in the system or something, but the gravestone photo for this memorial is on it twice now. I waited a couple of weeks to see if it would resolve but there still is two for some reason. Could you please delete one of them for me. Thank you for all your help on this and for all your contributions to Find a Grave.

Wrong picture attached
Hello, You have attached the wrong photo to Thomas Claude Montgomery, you attached his grandson, Tom S. Montgomery to Thomas Claude Montgomery. Just thought I'd mention it. I have been researching this family for this Tom S. Montgomery's widow, Sharon (Perry) Montgomery. Eddene

Margaret Walsh
My wife's grandparents were Margaret Walsh and Daniel Welsh. I'm not sure why they spelled their last name differently. You stated you worked at Oklahoma Forensic Center, formally known as Eastern State Hospital. My wifeís mother was an orphan so we donít know a lot about her parents. From census reports it appears that Daniel was a patient at Eastern Oklahoma hospital in Craig County, OK. Could this be the same place? About all we know about Daniel was that he died in 1942. The 1940 Census he was still at Eastern Oklahoma hospital. If he is not buried in Fairview Cemetery, could he be buried at the Eastern Oklahoma hospital cemetery? Will you give me permission to copy the photos of Margaretís headstone to be placed in my family tree software? Thanks for what you are doing. I just started photographing headstones and so far Iím enjoying it.

RE: Follow-up from ESH
Please contact me directly at chopperjoc@excite.com

She lived in Latimer County but not in Wilburton. That was the closest large city. That alone tells me something that is different than what I know. So that one piece of information is still information. I want her birth day in April 1855 so I might construct a marker and complete my records.

Any scrap of information is still a possible lead, and in genealogy research, what might not be important to one person can be a gold mine to another. This is why I made so many requests. My search there began 2012. My search for Catherine began in 1996.

Betty Atkins
Aaron Gregory
My name is Betty Atkins I was born May 30th 1940 to Irene Gregory. Her husband, (my birth father) was Aaron Gregory (quite a bit older) and he died before my birth. My only information was that I was living with a grandmother and had to be given up for adoption, as my grandmother had tuberculosis. I was adopted by Wayne and Una Wright as a toddler. ancestry.com lists my mother, Irene Gregory as having died under that same name on April 29, 2001.I am hoping to find out anything I can about my birth parents. My email address is elizabethatkins@comcast.net. Can you help in any way? Thank you

RE: S S Sharp
Thank you so much for taking the time to check on this area--and the Sharps. I put some in my yard when we first built the house, (I didn't know any better at the time)in a rock-gravel area. Once you plant those things, they are there forever,, you pull them up, more come up. I have tried spraying them with roundup, they thrive on it. We bulldozed an area to build a garage, they came up.
A friend who does a lot of looking for graves in our area, says that a lot of graves that aren't in cemeteries, are marked by yuccas. When they find a yucca in a strange area, they check for evidence of a grave.
Thanks again--so many graves are lost--and no record of the person's burial can be found--Thanks so much, Loneta
